104th Judicial District court bill advances in Legislature

1955 Legislation providing for another permanent district court for Lubbock County, with 104th Judicial District, was on the way to Gov. Allan Shivers for signature Thursday after House passage of Senate Bill No. 83, calling for the court, Rep. Geo. S. Berry of Lubbock told the Morning Avalanche by telephone late Thursday.

Rep. Berry, co-author with Rep. Waggoner Carr of Lubbock and Rep. J.O. Gilham of Brownfield of H.B. No. 99, creating the court, said the House bill came out of committee for submission to the House and the Senate bill, which called for the permanent court instead of a temporary court, was substituted for it. This move was made so that if the bill were approved it would not have to be sent back to the Senate for approval.

Berry said the measure as approved did not carry an appropriation for salary and that he and Rep. Carr would have to go before the Judiciary Appropriations Subcommittee to secure an appropriation for the court.
