west line of Lamb County to a point in the north line of the John

SEC. 2. That Chapter 35, Acts of the First Called session of
the Thirty-seventh Legislature, 1921, be amended by adding thereto
Section 12a to read as follows:
"Section 12a. All bond issues heretofore voted in said district,
and particularly that certain bond issue in the sum of $40,000.00,
said bonds running for forty years and bearing interest at the rate
of six per cent per annum, authorized at an election held in said
district on December 31, 1921, and all taxes levied, assessed and collected
for said bond issue and all taxes levied, or assessed, or collected,
for said issue, and any and all bond taxes, maintenance
taxes, or other taxes, as well as the election of the officers of said
district and any and all acts performed by them in the discharge of
their duties, are by this Act in all things validated."
SEC. 3. The fact that there now exists in said district doubt as to
the legality of the bonds heretofore voted in said district and the
taxes levied, assessed and collected or to be levied, assessed and collected
in said district and the deplorable condition of the schools in
said district by reason thereof, creates an imperative public necessity
which requires that the constitutional rule providing bills to
be read on three several days in each House be suspended, and said
rule is hereby suspended and that this Act take effect and be in
force from and after its passage, and it is Qo enacted.
[NOTE.-The enrolled bill shows that the foregoing Act passed
the House of Representatives, yeas 106, nays 0; and passed the
Senate, yeas 29, nays 0.]
[The foregoing Act was presented to the Governor of Texas for
his approval on the 20th day of February, A. D. 1923, but was not
signed by him nor returned to the House in which it originated,
with his objections thereto, within the time prescribed by the Constitution,
and thereupon became a law without his signature.]
Effective March 4, 1923.
