purposes, be used by the Governor in paying compensation and
expenses of witnesses coming from points outside of this State
to testify before any grand jury in this State in any criminal
investigation, or appear and testify in any criminal prosecution,
trial or case in this State. Provided that when any part
of said fund is used in paying compensation and expenses of
witnesses for either party in any criminal case, a like sum shall
be allowed the opposite party for the payment of compensation
and expenses of like witnesses. Said money shall be paid out
on accounts approved by the Governor and on warrants issued
by the Comptroller in accordance with the General Laws of
SEC. 2. The importance of this Act and the fact that the appropriation

to have witnesses from outside this State in criminal investigations
and prosecutions in order to bring to justice law violators,
creates an emergency and an imperative public necessity that
the constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
days in each House be suspended, and that said rule is
hereby suspended, and that this Act shall take effect and be
in force from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
