In all cases when the General Assembly fail to approve the report, or any part thereof, of the committee selected by the Governor to settle with the Auditor and Treasurer, and to examine into the condition and affairs of other State officers, as provided by law, the General Assembly then in session, or the next succeeding General Assembly shall appoint a special committee, to consist of one member of the Senate, to be named by the president of the Senate, and two members of the House, to be named by the Speaker of the House, which committee shall proceed to make such settlement, or to correct and adjust such part of said report as may not have been approved by the General Assembly, as provided in section seven thousand six hundred and six of the Revised Statutes, and report such statement to the General Assembly, if in session, but if the General Assembly be not in session, then in duplicate to the Governor, who shall submit such report to the two Houses of the General Assembly at its next meeting thereafter, to be proceeded on as is provided in section seven thousand six hundred and six of the Revised Statutes, relating to settlements with the Auditor and Treasurer.

“Sec, 2. In case the committee selected by the Governor to settle with the State Auditor and State Treasurer, and to inquire into the condition and affairs of the other State officers, fail to report to the General Assembly, as required by the provisions of section seven thousand six hundred and five of the Revised Statutes, or should the Gov. ernor fail or neglect to appoint such committee, the General Assembly shall, immediately after its organization, appoint a committee as provided in the first section of this act; in cases of failure of the General Assembly to approve the report, or any part thereof, of any committee appointed by the Governor under the provisions of section seven thousand six hundred and two of the Revised Statutes, which committee shall proceed to make such settlement in all respects the same, and governed by the same rules as provided by law for making settlement with the Auditor and Treasurer, and report such settlement to the General Assembly, if in session when such settlement is completed, but if the General Assembly be not in session when such settlement is completed, then said committee shall report the same, in duplicate, to the Governor, who shall submit said report to the two Houses of the next General Assembly, to be proceeded on by such Assembly as is provided by law.

“Sec. 3. The special committee provided for in sections one and two of this act shall receive for their services the same compensation as is or may be fixed by law for the pay of the committee selected by the Governor to make settlement with the State Auditor and State Treasurer under existing law: Provided, that if such settlement is made during the session of the Generul Assembly creating such committee, no additional per diem or compensation shall be allowed any member of such committee.

“ Sec. 4. The report of the committee selected to settle with the Auditor and Treasurer, for the years 1877 and 1878, not having been approved by the General Assembly, by reason of which failure no settlement was made with those officers for the years named, to the end that such settlement may be made as soon as possible, creates an emergency for the immediate taking effect of this act; therefore this act shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage.”
