SPECIAL LAWS. 5
VALIDATING COMMON SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 26 IN
S. B. No. 49.] CHAPTER 4.
An Act validating Common School District No. 26 of Gaines County,
Texas, and validating an issue of bonds heretofore voted by said district;
defining 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. 26 of Gaines County
as defined by order of the county board of school trustees of
Gaines County of date May 2, 1924, which order is of record in
"Record of School Districts" of Gaines County, on page 24, is
in all respects validated as of said date.
SEC. 2. The certain issue of schoolhouse bonds aggregating
two thousand ($2,000.00) dollars voted by said 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
[NoTE.-The enrolled bill shows that the foregoing Act passed
the Senate, 24 yeas, 0 nays; passed the House, 106 yeas, 0 nays.]
Approved February 4, 1925.
Effective February 4, 1925.
