AGO 1955 No. 12 >  January 20, 1955
NON-HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS - CONSTITUTIONAL LAW - PARTICIPATION BY NON-HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN FINANCING HIGH SCHOOL FACILITIES IN HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH WHICH THEY ARE AFFILIATED
NON-HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS ‑- CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ‑- PARTICIPATION BY NON-HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN FINANCING HIGH SCHOOL FACILITIES IN HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH WHICH THEY ARE AFFILIATED. 1. Section 1, ch. 299, Laws of 1953, providing that non-high school districts may contribute funds to be used for capital outlay by high school districts is not within the prohibition of Art. VIII, sec. 7, of the constitution which forbids municipal corporations from giving or loaning money or credit.2. Ch. 229, Laws of 1953, does not violate the constitutional prohibition against the delegation of legislative power.3. Ch. 229, Laws of 1953, is not in conflict with Art. IX, sec. 1 of the constitution, which requires the state to make "ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders.  . . ." 4. It is possible that ch. 229, Laws of 1953, does violate the provision of Art.I, sec. 19, of the constitution, which requires that no bill contain more than one subject and that expressed in its title.   If this is true, most of the act will be saved because the offending provision may be severed.
