“Article IV, Section 16.  Borrowing power of general assembly. — The general assembly shall have no powers, without the express consent of the people, to incur state debts to an amount exceeding fifty thousand dollars, except in time of war, or in case of insurrection or invasion; nor shall it in any case, without such consent, pledge the faith of the state for the payment of the obligations of others. This section shall not be construed to refer to any money that may be deposited with the state by the government of the United States.”

This means that the General Assembly may incur debt in an amount over $50,000 – without voter approval –  in cases of “time of war” and  “of insurrection,” but it cannot under any circumstances “incur debt” for the “payment of the obligation of others” “without such consent.”
