2 GENERAL AND SPECIAL LAWS.
SEC. 2. That the certificate of the Secretary of the Senate,
approved by the President thereof, or the Chief Clerk of the
House of Representatives, approved by the Speaker thereof,
shall be sufficient and the only evidence to the Comptroller upon
which he shall audit the claims for the mileage and per diem of
the members and the salaries and per diem of the officers and
employees of the 1st Called Session of the 42nd Legislature and
it shall be their duty, exclusively, to issue the necessary warrants
for the same upon the Treasury of the State of Texas for
the respective amounts.
SEC. 3. That the certificate of the Chairman of the Committee
on Contingent Expense of the Senate, approved by the
President of the Senate, or of the Chairman of the Committee
on Contingent Expenses of the House of Representatives, approved
by the Speaker of the House, as the case may be, shall
be sufficient authority to authorize the Comptroller to issue warrants
upon the Treasury of the State of Texas for the payment
of accounts for contingent expenses herein provided to be paid.
SEC. 4. The fact that the 1st Called Session of the 42nd Legislature
of the State of Texas is now in session, and public
policy requires that the appropriation made by this Act shall be
made immediately available, creates 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 hereby suspended, and that this Act
shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage, and
it is so enacted.
Approved July 20. 1931.
Effective July '20, 1931.
