AGO 1951 NO. 48 > May 24 1951

(1) The mere execution of a contract prior to April 1, 1951, would not take such contract out of the application of section 2, chapter 107, Laws of 1951, so as to entitle the district to levy taxes in the years 1952 and subsequent years for the payment of obligations thereby created if no bonds or interest-bearing warrants were actually issued prior to April 1, 1951.  (2) Interest-bearing coupon warrants may still be issued by fire protection districts, but such warrants cannot pledge the tax revenues of the district.
