Texas law; limits the indebtedness of junior college districts to 10 per cent of the total assessed valuation of property in the district. The Lee College district has property assessments totaling approximately 5278 million for 1965. Ten per cent of this total valuation is S27.8 million. The district's present indebtedness is only 1.5 per cent of the limit. The proposed S1.3 million bond issue on which district taxpayers will vote March 5 would increase the indebtedness to 51,730.000. That still would be only 6.2 per cent of the limit. "The Lee College district indebtedness is low, and by March 1, it will be even S50.000 less," pointed out Sam Bramlett, president of the college board of regents. "The financial condition of the district is such that it could safely be in debt as much as $27.8 million."
