AGO 1961 NO. 75 >

In view of the enactment of chapter 181, Laws of 1973, 1st Ex. Sess., establishing a $300 per month minimum with respect to the pensions payable to certain retired municipal firemen and law enforcement officers and their survivors, this figure now constitutes the minimum basis to be used in computing the annual two percent cost of living pension increases provided for in RCW 41.16.145, RCW 41.18.104, and RCW 41.26.250.

AGO 1951 NO. 121 >

Section 32, chapter 269, Laws of 1951, is susceptible of two constructions, and thus the construction most favorable to the violator must be adopted, which is that excess weight payments apply only to the weights in excess of those allowed by sections 30 and 31 for vehicles and combinations of vehicles.
