Notes of Decisions

Supreme Court lacked jurisdic­tion to determine constitu­tionality of Oregon Mass Transporta­tion Financing Act where peti­tion, which alleged that Mass Transporta­tion Financing Authority was unable or unwilling to proceed with statutory program in absence of clear declara­tion that Act was constitu­tional, disclosed no constitu­tional controversy invoking either judicial authority of court under Const. Art. VII § 1 or original jurisdic­tion under this Act. In re Oregon Mass Transp. Fin. Auth., 284 Or 241, 586 P2d 784 (1978)
