we expect to preserve the right of Texas exclusively to control this
problem, it devolves upon the Legislature to enact appropriate legislation
that will not jeopardize the exclusive right of Texas to continue an
effective conservation policy for the protection of this great and bountiful
resource against the ravages of unnecessary waste. To insure effectiveness
and avoid costly delay, if we are not to risk the right and heritage
of our citizenship to control this problem ourselves and secure for the
citizenship of Texas the inherent benefits of this great natural resource,
this regulation must be propagated within constitutional bounds.
I am mindful that this subject is before your honorable body and that
patriotic members have already given much toil and study to the problem.
These comments are made in a spirit of helpfulness in view of the emergency
that demands the speediest possible action. I therefore earnestly
commend this matter as an emergency for your earliest consideration.
JAMES V. ALLRED
Governor of Texa s
February 22, 1935.
To the Forty-fourth Legislatvre of the State of Texas:
I submit herewith for your consideration ten (10) proposed measures
dealing with public works projects and procedure with reference to loans,
grants, contracts and other desirable proceedings, each of which proposed
bill is self-explanatory.
During the past months many loans and grants on Texas projects have
been closed by the Public Works Administration, and there are numerous
projects now pending and in process of consummation.
The attached bills which are hereby submitted to you are measures which
the Public Works Administration deem proper and necessary, and the
Federal Administration has requested that they be enacted by this Legislature.
The enactment of these measures will greatly facilitate, simplify
and clarify the Texas laws with reference to issuance of bonds which
are self-liquidating, and the validating bills hereby submitted will cure
any procedure defects which might have occurred by inadvertence or oversight
in the issuance of any bonds heretofore issued or authorized and
now in the hands of the Federal Government. I deem it of prime importance
that these measures be promptly enacted as an evidence of
cooperation upon the part of Texas with the Public Works Administration,
and also to assist the municipal bodies of our State in securing and promptly
closing the loans and grants made to them by the Federal Government.
An emergency exists and the prompt enactment of these laws is imperative.
Your prompt action in this matter will be of untold benefit to the
State as a whole.
JAMES V. ALLRED
Governor of Tex.':.
