Act No. 377
For the relief of Continental Telephone Company; making an appropriation from the state treasury to compensate such company for telephone service furnished for the district attorney of the Twentyfourth Judicial Circuit in prior years. Be It Enacted by the Legislature of Alabama:
Section 1. The sum of one thousand eight hundred ninety one dollars and thirty eight cents ($1,891.38) is hereby appropriated out of any funds in the state treasury not otherwise appropriated to Continental Telephone Company to compensate such company for telephone service furnished to the district attorney of the Twenty-fourth Judicial Circuit of Alabama in prior years.
Continental Telephone Company provided such telephone service to the office of the district attorney, but the appropriation for prior years was not adequate to pay for such service.

Section 2. The State comptroller is directed to draw a warrant on the state treasury in favor of Continental Telephone Company for the amount appropriated herein.
Section 3. This act shall become effective upon its passage and approval by the Governor, or upon its otherwise becoming a law.
