December 8, 1975

REQUEST FOR ADVISORY OPINION ON CONSTITUTIONALITY OF


T. G. Kavanagh, C. J., and Williams, Levin, Coleman, Fitzgerald, and Lindemer, JJ., concurred.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam

The Senate requested an advisory opinion on whether the issuance of bonds by the Higher Education Loan Authority in accordance with 1975 PA 222 (Enrolled Senate Bill No. 624), an act to establish the Higher Education Loan Authority, requires the approval of a majority of the voters voting thereon at any general election pursuant to Const 1963, art 9, § 15.

On order of the Court, the request of the state Senate for an advisory opinion on the constitutionality of 1975 PA 222 is considered, and the same is hereby denied.

The Court respectfully declines to advise as to the constitutionality of 1975 PA 222 because the act was given immediate effect and took effect on October 1, 1975.

The Senate's resolution formally requesting an opinion from this Court as to the constitutionality of 1975 PA 222 was passed on October 14, 1975.

Under the Constitution (Const 1963, art 3, § 8), the request for an advisory opinion must come after enactment and before the effective date.
