FORTY-THIRD LEGISLATURE-SECOND CALLED SESSION. 23
of such delinquency, eight per cent (8%) if paid during the
fourth month of such delinquency, nine per cent (9%) if paid
during the fifth month of such delinquency, and ten per cent
(10%) if paid thereafter. Such resolution shall provide that,
in addition to the payment of the tax and penalty as provided,
interest at the rate of six per cent (6%) per annum shall be
charged and paid upon the gross amount of the tax and penalty
due from the date the tax became delinquent until paid.
SEC. 2. Until and unless the Board of Education or Board
of Trustees of any such Independent School District shall pass
the resolution provided for in the next preceding section hereof,
the penalties and interest now provided by law on delinquent
taxes due to any such Independent School District shall be and
remain in full force and effect.
SEC. 3. Notwithstanding the fact that such Board of Education
or Board of Trustees of any such Independent School
District may hereafter, during any particular year, pass a resolution
as provided for in Section 1 hereof, such action may be
rescinded as to future years thereafter by a resolution passed
by such Board of Education or Board of Trustees in any such
school district by a majority vote of the members of such
Board of Education or Board of Trustees, in which event the
same interest and penalties now provided by law on delinquent
taxes due to Independent School Districts shall immediately
accrue on all taxes thereafter becoming delinquent if such taxes
be not paid before the same become delinquent.
SEC. 4. All laws and parts of laws, both general and special,
in conflict herewith are hereby expressly repealed.
SEC. 5. If any section, clause, sentence, paragraph or part
of this Act shall, for any reason, be adjudged by any Court of
competent or final jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment
shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of this Act
but shall be confined in its operation to the section, clause,
sentence, paragraph or part hereof directly involved in the
controversy in which said judgment shall have been rendered.
SEC. 6. The fact that many thousands of dollars in taxes
for the year 1933 are now due and have not been paid by people
who would meet their obligations for such taxes if the
heavy penalties were lessened, and the fact that in the future
heavy delinquencies in the payment of taxes will accrue which
otherwise would be paid if the same were lessened, create an
emergency and an imperative public necessity demanding that
the Constitutional Rule which requires all bills to be read on
three several days in each House be suspended and said Rule
is hereby suspended and this Act shall be in force and take
effect from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
