Local Acts Are Co/Jed ; Contrary To Amendment LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 1 (UP) — Arkansas Attorney General Guy E. .Villiams has issued an opinion which may affect dozens of local ids passed at each session of the Arkansas Legislature. In an opinion to comptroller J. Qryan Sims, Williams said that all .ocal legislation which benefits one county and excludes olhers from provisions is Invalid. He said such legislation is contrary to Amendment Number 14 of the Arkansas Constitution. ' Sims had asked Williams the legal salary of a Polk County official. The ruling by the'attorney general affected Act Number 207 of 1943 which fixed the ^salaries of the county treasure?;' collector and comity clerk ili" Boonc and Polk counties. A search of 'population census records by the attorney general's office revealed that the act affected -only Polk County. But the measure was Introduced by Stale Senator Roy W. Milllin of Harrison, lioono County, with apparent desire to involve only Boonc coun l5 r - : According to the act, It would apply only to counties which, at the last or future federal census may have a population between 15,750 and 15,000.. The Bonne countj population fell within this limit but so did Polk county. Williams' opinion was based on a June 26 decision ol the Arkansas Supreme Court which Invalidated an act providing tea- road overseers in Randolph county.
