Interstate Cons. Street Ry. Co. v. Massachusetts, 207 U.S. 79 (1907)

Interstate Consolidated Street

Railway Company v. Massachusetts

No. 13

Argued October 15, 16, 1907

Decided November 4, 1907

207 U.S. 79

Syllabus

Requirements contained in another statute or document may be incorporated in a charter by generic or specific reference and, if clearly identified, the charter has the same effect as if it itself contained the restrictive words, and the question of the constitutionality of the statute referred to is immaterial.

A street railway corporation taking a legislative charter subject to all duties and restrictions set forth in all general laws relating to corporations of that class cannot complain of the unconstitutionality of a prior enacted statute compelling them to transport children attending public schools at half price.

187 Mass. 436 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality of the statute of Massachusetts requiring the transportation of school children by certain railways at half fare, are stated in the opinion. chanrobles.com-red
