fact that any other sentence, section, clause, or part thereof
may be declared invalid.
SEC. 4. Because of the fact that there are thousands of exservice
men in the State of Texas, who are justly entitled to
benefits under the present Federal Laws, including disability
compensation, pensions, and hospitalization, who are not now
receiving same, due largely to the fact that they are scattered
in various places over the State and do not have access to relevant
and proper information concerning provisions of said Federal
Laws and since this condition is depriving said veterans of
benefits to which they are justly entitled in the amount of thousands
of dollars annually, which condition could be corrected by
the early passage of this bill, thus there is created an emergency
and an imperative public necessity that requires the Constitutional
Rule requiring bills to be read on three several days in
each House be suspended, and the same is hereby suspended,
and this Act shall take effect and be in force and effect, from
and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
