SEC. 2. The fact that the present law has operated in some
instances so as to require candidates for district offices to pay
as their share of the primary expense sums in excess of the
amount which they may lawfully expend under the provisions
of what is commonly known as the Corrupt Practice Act, and
the further fact that in districts composed of more than one
county, particularly those districts composed of many counties,
the present law is unjust and exceedingly burdensome on district
candidates and the crowded condition of the calendar
creates an emergency and an imperatvie public necessity 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 enforced from and after its passage and said
rule is hereby suspended and it is so enacted.
Approved February 19, 1927.
