    Section 1. [383A.381] [ABSTRACT CLERK.] 
   In Ramsey county the office of abstract clerk shall not be

to pay principal and interest on bonds issued for that purpose.  
The tax shall be disregarded in the calculation of levies or 
limits on levies provided by Minnesota Statutes, sections 275.50
