Dear Dr. Harrington:                boundaries?
You have requested the opinion of this office as to
the question of whether a city building code is applicable to
the construction, as well as to the installation therein of
electrical and plumbing facilities, of buildings on State col-
lege or university land (State-owned) located within the city's
boundaries. In your letter of request, you state that diffi-
culties have arisen with the cities of Galveston and Arlington
over this question, in that these cities contend that their
building code requirements should be observed for buildings be-
ing constructed or renovated by the Texas A&M University System.
The building at Arlington is being constructed under
the authority of Article 2909c, Vernon's Civil Statutes, which
is quoted in part as follows:
Sec. 2. The buildings and structures
and additions to buildings and structures
constructed or improved pursuant to this au-
thority together with the equipment therein
shall be of types and for purposes which the
authorizing governing board shall deem appro-
priate and shall deem to be for the good of
the institution, provided such governing board
shall approve the total cost, type, and plans
and specifications of such construction, im-
provement and equipment; . . . (Emphasis added).
