ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE
M E M O R A N D U M
TO: All Bond Counsel
FROM: Jim Thomassen
DATE: January 28, 1991
RE: Edgewood v. Kirby
Please be advised that the Attorney General's Office is resuming review and approval of school district bonds and other obligations. We will approve school district financings which comply with standard requirements, with the additional requirement that the bonds or other obligations be delivered prior to April 1, 1991.
Absent the enactment of a "constitutionally sufficient plan" or additional court action, this office will be unable to approve school district bonds or other obligations on or after April 1, 1991. We do not know at this time, if the legislature does enact a new school finance plan, how or whether the determination can be made that such plan is constitutionally sufficient.
Please distribute this memorandum to other interested members of your firm.
