Committees at Austin Flan
To Meet Ahead of
Austin, Tex-, May 20. In order to
expedite the work of the second
called session of the 56 th legislature
next month. & strong effort Is to be I
made to have the general appropria-!
tion bills ready for introduction lm-
mediately upon the convening of the j
session. With this end In view, the ,
bouse general appropriation commit
tee will meet here two weeks before
the session is called and the senate
finance committee 29 days before.
These committees will go oxer the
various estimates and budgets which
have been submitted for appropria
tions and will In certain instances
have the heads of departments and
institutions appear and explain cer
tain items for which appropriations
By following thas plan !t is gen
erally expected that these money bills
win d reaoy xor consideration as ;
soon as the lawmakers are ready for
business. It is understood to be the
plan of the governor not to burden
the legislators with many additional .
measures until the appropriation ,
measures are out of the way. Ex i
perienced lawmakers entertain the
opinion that in the event this pro- j
gram is adhered to, it will be pos- 1
sible to dispose'' of the money bills 1
within 10 days. This would give the 1
legislature 20 days in which to pass
additional measures to be proposed
by the governor.

'ion committee oz tne legislature
will be to trim the budgets of many
of the Institutions and departments
