Art. 6243-23. WARRANTS AGAINST TEXAS OLD AGE ASSISTANCE FUND; INTEREST.
Sec. 1. The Texas Old Age Assistance Commission is hereby authorized to pay interest, so long as said warrants are unpaid, on warrants issued against the Texas Old Age Assistance Fund for the payment of old age assistance benefits when the cash balance of the moneys deposited to the credit of said fund by the State of Texas is insufficient to pay in cash the State's part of the pension requirements, and there is hereby appropriated out of any moneys appropriated to the Texas Old Age Assistance Fund a sufficient amount to pay interest charges accruing under this Act, but in the event that interest is paid on or on account of such warrants as authorized in this Act, no such warrant, issued for a single month, including both principal and interest paid thereon or therefor, shall ever exceed Fifteen Dollars ($15) of State money.
Sec. 2. The form and method of issuing such warrants and of paying the interest thereon as herein authorized shall be prescribed by the Texas Old Age Assistance Commission. The Comptroller is authorized and directed to perform such duties as are required under authority of this Act to accomplish its purpose.
Sec. 3. Before the issuance of any such warrants, the State Banking Board shall, upon application by the Old Age Assistance Commission, determine the rate of interest which shall be paid on account of such warrants as authorized herein, such interest rate never to exceed two and one-half (2-1/2) per centum per annum.
Sec. 4. The authority conferred by this Act to pay said interest shall not be limited by the provisions of Section 6 of Chapter 472, Acts of the Second Called Session of the Forty-fourth Legislature.
Sec. 5. For the purposes of this Act and until the appropriation made in House Bill No. 8, now pending in this, the Third Called Session of the Forty-fourth Legislature, becomes available, the unexpended balance of the appropriation made in Chapter 472 of the Acts of the Second Called Session of the Forty-fourth Legislature for the purpose of paying Old Age Assistance and defraying the expense of the administration of the Old Age Assistance Act is hereby reappropriated. The unexpended balance of the appropriation made in said House Bill No. 8 remaining on hand on August 31, 1937, is hereby reappropriated for the purposes of this Act for the fiscal year ending August 31, 1938, to assure the payment of any warrants issued under the provisions of this Act. Provided, however, that the power conferred in this Act does not authorize the issuance of more than Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) of warrants upon which or on account of which interest may be paid, and provided further that no such warrants shall be issued after March 1, 1937.
Sec. 6. This law shall be cumulative of all other laws on the subject, but in event any provision of this Act shall be in conflict with the provisions of any other law, the provisions of this Act shall have precedence and shall be fully effective.
