AGO 1957 NO. 126 >

(1) The authority of King County under RCW 47.56.250 to support the payment of interest on Toll Bridge Authority bonds issued for the construction of the second Lake Washington Bridge is not beyond question. (2) The provisions of Chapter 47.57 RCW provide a means for the creation of a new municipal corporation to guarantee the payment of interest on bonds issued by the Toll Bridge Authority.  However, for practical purposes it may be difficult for such a district to carry out its objectives.
