2 Fla. Supp. 3


Circuit Court, Dade County.

August 28, 1951.

J. W. Watson, Jr., Miami, for plaintiff.

Arthur A. Carlson, Assistant State Attorney, Miami, for the State.

*4VINCENT C. GIBLIN, Circuit Judge.

No factual dispute is involved and the cause has been finally heard on the legal questions presented by the pleadings.

It is my opinion, and I hold, that the legislature, by its enactment of chapter 26870 (the Election Code of 1951), did not expressly or by implication repeal chapter 23062, Laws of Florida, General Acts of 1945.1

It is therefore declared and decreed that the plaintiff, the City of Miami, may legally hold and conduct a special election on November 27, 1951 (the same day on which a regular municipal election is to be held), for the purpose of submitting to the qualified electors of the city who are freeholders the *5question of whether the municipal bonds mentioned and described in the petition filed herein shall be issued, provided, of course, there shall be compliance with the requirements of such chapter 23062 as to the method and manner of holding and conducting such special election.
