two thousand eight hundred (32,800) according to the last pre'ceding
Federal Census. Independent school districts in said
counties are hereby authorized to borrow the sum of not more
than One Hundred Fifty Thousand ($150,000.00) Dollars for
the purpose of supplementing funds on hand to construct and
equip public free school buildings of and in said independent
school districts, and to issue time warrants within the limitations
and upon the conditions prescribed in Section 2 hereof to evidence
the indebtedness so incurred.
SEC. 2. Such time warrants as are authorized by Section 1
of this Act shall be payable within three (3) years from the
effective date of this Act and shall bear interest at not more
than the rate of five (5%) per cent per annum, and the Boards
of Trustees of said independent school districts shall levy a sufficient
tax, within legal limitations, to pay the interest on said
obligations, and to create a sinking fund sufficient to discharge
them at maturity. The powers granted by this Act shall be
exercised by the Boards of Trustees of said districts without
the necessity of a vote by the people.
SEC. 3. The fact that certain school districts, by reason of
the destruction of existing buildings and facilities, are in urgent
need of constructing and equipping additional buildings,
and the depleted treasuries of said districts are insufficient to
finance such construction and equipping of such buildings, creates
an emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
Constitutional Rule requiring bills to be read on three several
days in each House of the Legislature, be suspended, and said
Rule hereby is suspended, and this Act shall take effect and be
in force from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
