Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas:
SECTION 1. That Article 324 of the Revised Civil Statutes
of the State of Texas be amended so as hereafter to read as follows:
Article 324. Assistants in Certain Counties. The district
attorney shall appoint one assistant district attorney in districts
consisting of more than one county, in which there is situated a
city of twenty-eight thousand population or over according to
the last preceding United States Census, or any United States
census which may hereafter be taken; provided the district attorney
shall furnish data to the district judge of his district that
he is in need of an assistant and is himself unable to attend to
all the duties required of him by law, and that it is necessary
to the best interests of the State that an assistant district attorney
be appointed. Each person so appointed shall be a qualified
resident attorney of the district in which said appointment
is made, and shall give bond and take the official oath and shall
have authority to perform all the acts and duties of district attorneys
under the laws of this State. Said appointment shall be
for such time as the district attorney shall deem best in
the enforcement of the law, not to be less than one month.
Said assistant district attorney shall be paid by the
Comptroller for the time of actual service rendered at the rate
of twenty-five hundred dollars per annum. Said sum shall be
paid monthly upon certificate of the district clerk and the district
judge of said district that said assistant district attorney
has performed his duties and is entitled to pay. The district
attorney of any such district at any time he deems said assistant
unnecessary or finds that he is not attending to his duties
as required by law, may remove said person from office by merely
writing to said district judge to that effect.

and the same is hereby appropriated out of any moneys in the
State Treasury not otherwise appropriated, for the salary of
the assistant district attorney provided for herein for the year
ending August 31, 1927.
SEC. 2. The fact that there now exists no provision for the
payment of assistant district attorneys in districts in which
there is situated a city of 28,000 population, and over, and that
there exists no provision for the removal of such assistant district
attorneys, creates an emergency and an imperative public
necessity demanding the suspension of the constitutional rule
