66 GENERAL AND SPECIAL LAWS.
SEC. Ilh. All the provision of Title 102 of the Revised Civil
Statutes as amended shall apply in the enforcement of this Act.
SEC. 11i There is hereby appropriated to the Railroad Commission
of Texas for its use in complying with this Act an additional
sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00), or so much
thereof as may be necessary, out of the money raised each year
from the tax collected by virtue of Article 6032 Revised Civil
Statutes of 1925, and if the money so raised by said tax is insufficient
to pay this appropriation therefrom, then the balance
of this appropriation shall be paid out of the General Revenue
not otherwise appropriated.
SEC. llj. Nothing contained in this Act shall authorize the
Commission to limit, fix or adjust the amount of the production
of crude petroleum oil or natural gas within this State, or from
any pool or area within the State, for the purpose of balancing
the amount of such production with the current demand or market
demand for such oil or gas.
SEC. 12. Any person or party at interest aggrieved by any
order of the Railroad Commission of Texas under this Act, may
have such order reviewed by proceedings in the manner prescribed
by Article 6453, Revised Civil Statutes of Texas. The
proceedings upon appeal shall be in like manner as prescribed
by Article 6453.
SEC. 13. The invalidity of any section of this Act, or part
thereof, shall not affect the remainder of said Act, and it is
hereby declared that the Legislature would have passed any sections
or provisions hereof independently of all other sections or
SEC. 14. This Act shall be construed as in addition to and
cumulative of all other laws now in force and is not to be construed
as any impairment of or limitation of any law now in
SEC. 15. The fact that Chapter 36 of the Acts of the Fifth
Called Session of the Forty-first Legislature has been practically
inoperative because of inadequate penalties, and that it did not
include the common purchasing of natural gas and that there is
existing discrimination in the purchases of both oil and gas,
creating chaos in the industry, constitutes an emergency and an
imperative public necessity that the Constitutional Rule requiring
all bills to be read on three several days be suspended, and
the same is hereby suspended, and that this Act take effect from
and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
Approved August 12, 1931.
Effective August 12, 1931.
