DALLAS - Little Rock will delay this week's negotiated sale of $32 million of library construction and improvement bonds until it determines if it can legally collect the tax supporting the debt.

Voters approved a 20-year, one-mill increase for the bonds and a separate 15-year 0.5 mill increase for operations and expanded children's programs in December 2007, with 65% of those voting in favor of the increases. The library tax went from two mills to 3.5 mills.
