(1980) The Port Authority Law serves a public purpose, and any aid provided to private corporations is merely incidental to such purpose, and thus does not violate Art. VI, Sections 23 and 25, in that it is an expenditure of public funds for a public purpose. State ex rel. Wagner v. St. Louis County Port Authority (Mo.), 604 S.W.2d 592.
