OF

THE STATE OF TEXAS

PASSED AT THE

REGULAR SESSION OF THE NINETEENTH LEGISLATURE

CONVENED

AT THE CITY OF AUSTIN

JANUARY 13, AND ADJOURNED MARCH 31, 1885.

BY AUTHORITY OF THE STATE OF TEXAS

AUSTIN, TEXAS

NOTE.

Constitution of the State of Texas, Article III.

Sec. 39. No law passed by the Legislature, except the general appropriation act, shall take effect or go into force until ninety days after the adjournment of the session at which it was enacted, unless in case of an emergency, which emergency must be expressed in a preamble or in the body of the act, the Legislature shall, by a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, otherwise direct; said vote to be taken by yeas and nays, and entered upon the journals.

GENERAL LAWS.

S. B. No. 13.]

CHAPTER 1.

An Act making an appropriation for the mileage and per diem pay of the members and the per diem pay of the officers and employees of the Nineteenth Legislature.

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas, That the sum of eighty thousand dollars or so much thereof as may be necessary, be, and the same is hereby appropriated out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated, for the payment of mileage and per diem pay of members and per diem pay of officers and employees of the Nineteenth Legislature of the State of Texas.

Section 2. That the certificate of the Secretary of the Senate, approved by the President thereof, or of the Chief Clerk of the House approved by the Speaker thereof shall be sufficient evidence to the Comptroller upon which he shall admit the claims and issue his warrants upon the Treasurer for the respective amounts.

Section 3. And whereas the Nineteenth Legislature for the payment of the officers, members and employees of which this law is enacted, is now in session and public policy requires their payment; therefore an imperative public necessity exists that the rule requiring this bill to be read on three several days be suspended and it is so suspended and that this act take effect and be in force from and after its passage. Approved January 20th, 1885.

H. B. No. 81.]

CHAPTER 2.

An Act making an appropriation to defray the contingent expenses of the Nineteenth Legislature.

Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas: That the sum of thirty thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, be, and the same is hereby appropriated out of any moneys in the treasury not otherwise appropriated, to pay the contingent expenses of the Nineteenth Legislature. That (except in cases of accounts for printing done, and stationery furnished) the certificate of the chairman of the Committee on Contingent Expenses, that an account has been examined and approved by said committee, and countersigned

by the President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House, as the case may be, shall be sufficient authority to authorize and require the Comptroller of Public Accounts to draw his warrant on the State Treasury for the payment of any claim against said fund. The accounts for printing and stationery shall take the course prescribed by the Revised Statutes.

Sec. 2. Whereas, it is of sufficient public importance that the contingent expenses of the Legislature be promptly paid in order that the material furnished and labor performed, may be procured at cash prices, and the want of such appropriation to pay the contingent expenses of the Nineteenth Legislature, creates an imperative public necessity that the rule requiring bills to be read on three several days in each house should be suspended and this act take effect from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.

Approved January 26th, 1885.

S. B. No. 5.]
