FORTY-THIRD LEGISLATURE-SECOND CALLED SESSION. 25
County of all matters civil and criminal of which jurisdiction
is given to the District Courts by the Constitution and laws
of this State; provided, that the Judge of the Fifth-ninth Judicial
District may impanel the Grand Jury in Grayson County
when, in the discretion of said Court, it is deemed by him
proper so to do he may draw and impanel such Grand Jury for
any terms of his Court as provided by law for other District
Courts for impaneling Grand Juries. Either of the! Judges
of District Court of Grayson County may, in their discretion,
either in term or in vacation, transfer any case or cases, civil
or criminal, that may at any time be pending in his Court, to
the other District Court in Grayson County, by order or orders
entered upon the minutes of the Court making such transfer; and
where such transfer or transfers are made, the Clerk of said
Court shall enter such case or cases upon the dockets of the
Court to which such transfer or transfers are made, and when
so entered upon the docket, the Judge of said Court shall try
and dispose of said cases in the same manner as if such cases
were originally in said Court. The Clerk of the District Court
of Grayson County, as heretofore constituted, and his successor
in office shall be the Clerk of both the Fifteenth and Fiftyninth
District Courts in said Grayson County, and shall perform
all the duties pertaining to the clerkship of both of said
SEC. 2. The fact that the present law requires the District
Judge of the Fifty-ninth Judicial District Court to impanel
a Grand Jury in Grayson County at a considerable cost to said
county and the further fact that the change herein set forth
will reduce the cost of holding Grand Juries in Grayson County
and leave it optional with the Judges to convene Grand Juries
therein create 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 said Rule is suspended,
and this Act shall take effect and be in force from and
after its passage, and it is so enacted.
