         76R7281 BDH-D                           
                                A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 1-1                                   AN ACT
 1-2     relating to terms of trustees of certain special-purpose school
 1-3     districts.
 1-5           SECTION 1.  Section 11.352(b), Education Code, is amended to
 1-6     read as follows:
 1-7           (b)  For each military reservation school district, the State
 1-8     Board of Education may appoint a board of three or five trustees.
 1-9     Enlisted military personnel may be appointed to the school board.
1-10     A majority of the trustees appointed for the district must be
1-11     civilians and all may be civilians.  The trustees shall be selected
1-12     from a list of persons who are qualified to serve as members of a
1-13     school district board of trustees under Section 11.061 and who live
1-14     or are employed on the military reservation.  The list shall be
1-15     furnished to the State Board of Education [board] by the commanding
1-16     officer of the military reservation.  The trustees appointed serve
1-17     terms of two, three, or four years, as determined by the State
1-18     Board of Education.
1-19           SECTION 2.  The importance of this legislation and the
1-20     crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
1-21     emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
1-22     constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
1-23     days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
1-24     and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
 2-1     passage, and it is so enacted.
