17-2-2.6. Involuntary suspension of publication--Existing legal newspapers.

The publication requirements listed in §§ 17-2-2.1 to 17-2-2.5, inclusive, are not deemed to be interrupted by any involuntary suspension of publication resulting from loss, destruction, failure, or unavailability of operating facilities, equipment, or personnel from any cause, and any newspaper so affected is not disqualified as a legal newspaper if publication is resumed within one week after it again becomes possible. This section and §§ 17-2-2.1 to 17-2-2.5, inclusive, do not disqualify as a legal newspaper any publication which, prior to January 1, 1985, was a legal newspaper, so long as it continues to meet the requirements under which it previously qualified. A newspaper may use activity occurring prior to July 1, 2024, to satisfy the requirements of chapter 17-2.
