AMENDING BOND AND WARRANT LAW SO AS TO
PROVIDE THAT GIVING OF NOTICE BY
CITIES SHALL NOT BE A CONDITION
S. B. No. 35.] CHAPTER 24.
An Act to amend House Bill No. 312 known as the bond and warrant law
of 1931 passed by the Forty-Second Legislature at the Regular Session
thereof by adding thereto a new section to be designated as Section
11a, providing that nothing contained in said Act shall be construed as
requiring any city to give any notice as a condition precedent to issuing
warrants payable out of current funds of such city, and the issuance
of any such warrants by any such city shall not be subject to the
terms and provisions of said Act; providing that when such warrants
