Transcript though we understand the committee is for the bill. Members of our House delegation are beginning to work the floor intensively again for final passage votes. SB 2 is heard at 11:45 p.m. after the Senate had voted redistricting bill. It is referred to the same subcommittee which visited the campus, with instructions to report back Monday, May 22. May 19, 1961: It is believed that there are over 100 favorable votes in the House, and possibly 115 in the event a 4/5ths vote is needed to suspend the rules for final passage of SB 2 on the same day it is engrossed. OPPOSITION'S EFFORTS FAIL May 22,1961: SB 2 is reported out favorably by the State Affairs Committee of the House at 7:45 p.m. after last-ditch attempts by one or two opponents on the 21-man committee to amend the measure and thereby kill it. SB 2 PASSES HOUSE Tuesday, May 23, 1961: Rep. Cole brought up SB 2 at 11:46 a.m., and the bill is engrossed 111-29. He then moved for the 4/5ths margin required for final passage immediately. With the strongest possible support from Speaker Turman, this vote is won 117-26, (verification 117-23). At 12:29 p.m., SB 2 is passed 108-35 and sent to the governor for his signature. Thus ends almost two full years of exacting planning and work, plus 134 extremely difficult days in the Legislature. In September of 1963 a new dawn will break over Texas as the University of Houston takes its place as the 20th member in the Texas System of Higher Education. . . . A NEW DAWN WILL BREAK UH AND ITS STUDENTS WAIT AS BILLS ARE CONSIDERED SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JAMES A. TURMAN is interviewed immediately after the bill's final passage. LT. GOVERNOR BEN RAMSEY expresses his views on the University's success.
