Rock Island County is discussing the building of a new courthouse. Is it constitutional?|
By a constitutional amendment to the 1870 constitution, all county, city, town, village and justice of the peace courts were abolished and their duties were transferred to the circuit court. This amendment became effective Jan. 1, 1964.
The amendment provides that all salaries and expenses shall be paid by the taxpayers of the state. The people should be made aware of this provision in that Illinois State Constitution.
(P.S.) If the city of Davenport purchases a casino, will that mean that every county, city, town and village in Iowa can operate gambling?)
