consolidation of cities of more than 5,000 population, and/or in
every instance wherein said extension of territory was attempted
under Charter provisions which provide for the annexation

resolutions, elections and ordinances taken, held, made or passed
in reference thereto or pursuant thereto, are hereby confirmed,
ratified and validated irrespective of any irregularities, and in
like manner as if said consolidation or annexation had been authorized
in the first instance.
SEC. 3. The fact that the present law provides for the consolidation
of cities of more than 5,000 inhabitants and does not
expressly provide for the consolidation of a city of more than
5,000 population with a city of less than 5,000 population, the
further fact that certain cities affected by this Act have heretofore
attempted to perfect consolidation with cities of less
than 5,000 population, acting under the impression that they
were authorized to make such consolidations, and the further

territory under Charter provisions which do not specifically
state that the territory may be annexed when included in an incorporated
city of less than 5,000 inhabitants, create an emergency
and an imperative public necessity that the rule requiring
bills to be read on three several days be suspended, and said
rule is suspended, and that this Act take effect and be in force
from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
