Assembly, that the Constitution of the State of Arkansas prohibits the 25

appropriation of funds for more than a one (1) year period; that the 26

effectiveness of this Act on July 1, 2013 is essential to the operation of 27

the agency for which the appropriations in this Act are provided, and that in 28

the event of an extension of the legislative session, the delay in the 29

effective date of this Act beyond July 1, 2013 could work irreparable harm 30

upon the proper administration and provision of essential governmental 31

programs. Therefore, an emergency is hereby declared to exist and this Act 32

being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health 33

and safety shall be in full force and effect from and after July 1, 2013. 34
