    1-6  read as follows:
    1-7        (a)  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, a teacher

    1-9  ladder level under Subchapter E, Chapter 13, on August 31, 1993, is
   1-10  entitled to receive for <the 1993-1994 school year and> each school
   1-11  year <thereafter, as long as the teacher is employed by the same
   1-12  district,> a minimum salary equal to the teacher's base salary plus
   1-13  the <teacher's> career ladder supplement paid at that career ladder
   1-14  level for the 1992-1993 school year by the district that employed

   1-17  school year.
   1-18        SECTION 3.  The importance of this legislation and the
   1-19  crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
   1-20  emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
   1-21  constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
   1-22  days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
   1-23  and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
   1-24  passage, and it is so enacted.
