English term or phrase: grammatical analysis
That pledge constitutes a charge against the revenues from such motor vehicle and special fuels excise taxes equal to the charge of any other general obligation bonds of the state that have been and may thereafter be authorized that also pledge, on an equal basis, excise taxes on motor vehicle and special fuels for their payment.
试译很烂,因为后半句不太明白,求高手砸砖。主要因为在that also pledge, on an equal basis上卡住了。这个that 是定语从句且先行词为 any other general obligation bonds of the state 吗?求修改译文。非常谢谢。

这个句子中,关键是对前面“equal to”和后面“on an equal basis”的理解。这两个短语,意思实质是一样的,指的不是金额相当或相等,而是指质押权的优先顺序相同。大意是,只要没有就哪次质押设有优先权,本次设定的质押,与其他普通债务同样也在这些收入上已经或将要设定的质押,权利都是相同的,即享有同等受偿权,不存在谁先谁后的问题。具体措词你自己再整理一下吧。另:pledge与charge,在西方国家法律中是区别的,在中国法律中,前者基本相当于“质押”,后者基本相当于“抵押”,但这儿说的是以未来收入来作担保,属于以一种收款权利来担保,在中国权利担保一般称为“质押”,所以,翻译时,这两个词可以都按“质押”来处理,当然,也可前者按“质押”处理,后者像你译文中那样按“担保”处理。
