    1-8        Section 42.044.  Creation of Industrial District in
    1-9  Extraterritorial Jurisdiction.
   1-10        (a)  In this section, "industrial district" has the meaning
   1-11  customarily given to the term but also includes any area in which
   1-12  tourist-related businesses and facilities are located.
   1-13        (b)  The governing body of a municipality may designate any
   1-14  part of its extraterritorial jurisdiction as an industrial district
   1-15  and may treat the designated area in a manner considered by the
   1-16  governing body to be in the best interests of the municipality.
   1-17        (c)  The governing body may make written contracts with
   1-18  owners of land in the industrial district:
   1-19              (1)  to guarantee the continuation of the
   1-20  extraterritorial status of the district and its immunity from
   1-21  annexation by the municipality for a period not to exceed fifteen
   1-22  <seven> years; and
   1-23              (2)  with other lawful terms and considerations that
    2-1  the parties agree to be reasonable, <consider> appropriate,<;> and
    2-2  not unduly restrictive of business activities.
    2-3        (d)  The parties to a contract may renew or extend if for
    2-4  successive periods not to exceed fifteen <seven> years each.  In
    2-5  the event any owner of land in an industrial district is offered an
    2-6  opportunity to renew or extend a contract, then all owners of land
    2-7  in that industrial district must be offered an opportunity to renew
    2-8  or extend a contract subject to the provisions of Subsection (c).
    2-9        (e)  A municipality may provide for adequate fire-fighting
   2-10  services in the industrial district by:
   2-11              (1)  directly furnishing fire-fighting services that
   2-12  are to be paid for by the property owners of the district;
   2-13              (2)  contracting for fire-fighting services, whether or
   2-14  not all or a part of the services are to be paid for by the
   2-15  property owners of the district; or
   2-16              (3)  contracting with the property owners of the
   2-17  district to have them provide for their own fire-fighting services.
   2-18        (f)  A property owner who provides for his own fire-fighting
   2-19  services under this section may not be required to pay any part of
   2-20  the cost of the fire-fighting services provided by the municipality
   2-21  to other property owners in the district.
   2-22        SECTION 2.  The changes in law made by this Act apply only to
   2-23  contracts in effect on or entered into after the effective date of
   2-24  this Act.
   2-25        SECTION 3.  The importance of this legislation and the
    3-1  crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
    3-2  emergency and an imperative public necessary that the
    3-3  constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
    3-4  days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended.
