Transcript TEXAS CONSTITUTION (continued) in the old constitution. The legislative article retains the old structure of the legislature and essentially the same lawmaking procedure. There are a few minor changes in the procedure for overriding a veto and the deletion of a number of unnecessary details concerning the legislative process, the Veteran's Land Board, hospital districts, and similar matters that are better handled by statutory law than by the Constitution. Two major changes exist in the new version. Instead of a specific salary set in the Constitution (currently $7200 a year plus $30 a day when the legislature is in session), a salary commission would recommend a salary. The legislature would then set its own pay, not to exceed the amount suggested by the commission. The commission would be appointed by the governor, lieutenant governor, Speaker of the House, Attorney General, and Chief Justice. The other major change would replace the 140-day session every two years with annual sessions of the legislature. In odd years it would meet 140 days; in even years 90 days. The 1976 session would be limited to implementing the new constitutional provisions or matters submitted by the governor. The structure of the executive branch would remain essentially the same, except the Commissioner of Agriculture would be given constitutional status, rather than the current statutory status. The governor would have somewhat stronger powers in the new constitution. She/lie would be able to remove her/his appointees more easily. Also, the governor could be given somewhat broader powers in budget and fiscal matters by the legislature. The governor would be limited to two consecutive four-year terms (no limit now exists). Finally, statutory state agencies would automatically "die" after ten years, unless the legislature renews them. Proposition §2 would change the structure of the courts. No longer would courts be divided into civil and criminal courts. Instead there would be a unified court structure, with one set of courts which would handle both criminal and civil cases. There would be a supreme court, courts of appeal, district courts and circuit courts. County courts would continue to exist, but the legislature could abolish them later. There would be at least one Justice of the Peace per county; currently, there must be at least four JP's in each county. (continued on page 5)
