Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly:

SECTION 1. There is appropriated to the Department of Public Health the sum of sixteen thousand eight hundred four dollars and twenty-five cents ($16,804.25) for the purpose of purchasing and using antitoxins and serums.

§ 2. The appropriations herein made are subject to the provisions of "An Act in relation to State finance," approved June 10, 1919, as amended.

§3. Because the money appropriated by the Fifty-second General Assembly to the Department of Public Health for the purpose herein expressed has been expended and it is important to provide for the purchase of antitoxins and serums at the earliest possible moment in order to prevent the spread of diphtheria and typhoid and to treat existing cases of diphtheria and because by a recent decision of the Supreme Court of Illinois, the appropriation attempted to be made by the Fifty-third General Assembly for this purpose by Senate Bill No. 2 is no longer available, therefore an emergency exists and this Act shall take effect upon its passage.
