Pursuant to § 64, chapter 8, Laws of 1967, Ex. Sess., the community college districts which have taken over from common school districts the responsibility for administration of community colleges are now primarily liable for the performance of all contractual obligations (except those covered by §§ 60 and 75 of the act) which were entered into for community college purposes by the school districts prior to the effective date of the act; however, the common school districts remain secondarily liable for the performance of these contracts.
