An Act validating Common School District No. 11 of Gaines County, and

the powers of the county board of school trustees of Gaines County in
respect to said district; and declaring an emergency.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas:
SECTION 1. Common School District No. 11 of Gaines County
as defined by an order of the commissioners' court of Gaines
County of date May 14, 1917, which order is of record in Book
2, pages 245 and 246, minutes of the commissioners' court of
Gaines County is in all respects validated as of said date.
SEC. 2. The certain issue of schoolhouse bonds aggregating
four thousand ($4,000.00) dollars voted by said common school
district on June 21, 1924, together with the election in regard
thereto held on June 21, 1924, and all proceedings relative thereto
and all orders of the commissioners' court of Gaines County,
Texas, relative to the issuance of said bonds and all tax levies
ordered by said court in respect thereto, are in all things validated,
and the Attorney General of Texas is authorized to approve
said bonds upon proper showing of the necessary orders
of the commissioners' court levying the required taxes to support
said bond issue as in other cases.
SEC. 3. The county board of school trustees of Gaines County
shall have the same powers with respect to the boundaries of
this district, as if the same had been validly created under the
General Laws of this State.
SEC. 4. The fact that the above bonds were voted some time
ago, but that said district has been unable to avail itself thereof,
by reason of irregularities in the organization of said district,
and that it is now in urgent need of the facilities which said
bonds are designed to provide, creates an emergency and an
imperative public necessity, justifying that the constitutional
rule requiring bills to be read on three several days in each House
be suspended, and that this Act shall take effect and be in force
from and after its passage, and said rule is hereby suspended,
and it is so enacted.
