S. B. No. 2.] CHAPTER 2.
An Act making an appropriation of the sum of Twenty Thousand ($20,000)
Dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to pay the contingent
expenses of the First Called Session of the Thirty-Seventh Legislature
of the State of Texas, convened on July 18, 1921, and the authorized and
unpaid expenses of the Regular Session of the Thirty-Seventh Legislature
in the event the approriation previously made for that purpose is inadequate,
in accordance with the proclamation of the Governor, providing
how accounts may be approved, and declaring an emergency.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas:
SECTION 1. That the sum of Twenty Thousand ($20,000) Dollars,
or so much thereof as may be necessary, is hereby appropriated
out of any funds in the State Treasury of the State of Texas, not
otherwise appropriated, to pay the contingent expenses of the First
Called Session of the Thirty-seventh Legislature of the State of
Texas, convened on July 18, 1921, in accordance with the proclamation
of the Governor, and the authorized and unpaid expenses of the
Regular Session of the Thirty-seventh Legislature in the event the
appropriation previously made for that purpose is inadequate.
SEC. 2. The approval of the Chairman of the Committee on Contingent
Expenses of the Senate and the approval of the President of
the Senate, or the approval of the Chairman of the Committee on
Contingent Expenses of the House of Representatives and of the
Speaker of the House, shall be sufficient evidence to the Comptroller
upon which he shall audit claims and issue warrants, for the respective
amounts, upon the State Treasurer.
SEC. 3. The fact that the Thirty-seventh Legislature of the State
of Texas is now convened in its First Called Session and that public
policy requires that the appropriation made in this Act, shall be
immediately available, creates an emergency and an imperative public
necessity that the constitutional rule requiring that all bills be read
on three several days in each house be suspended and that this Act
take effect and be in force from and after its passage, and it is so
[NOTE.-The enrolled bill shows that the foregoing Act passed the
Senate, yeas 27, nays 0; and passed the House with amendments, no
-vote given; and that the Senate concurred in House amendments,
yeas 28, nays 0.]
Approved July 21, 1921.
Effective July 21, 1921.
