MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS - LICENSES - CONFLICT WITH STATE STATUTE
MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS ‑- LICENSES ‑- CONFLICT WITH STATE STATUTE

In view of chapter 184, Laws of 1933, (RRS (P. Supp.) 8276-1 et seq.), as amended, a municipal corporation in furtherance of its regulatory powers may not require the payment of a license fee for the privilege of conducting or holding boxing and/or wrestling contests within said municipality. It is to be noted that this conclusion is based upon the assumption that there is no special provision in a given municipal charter granting a municipality autonomy with respect to wrestling, boxing, and the regulation thereof.
