This section was repealed April 22, 1975.
The former section, added in 1954 and never amended, concerned transfer of service credit between the Teacher Retirement System of Texas and the Employees Retirement System of Texas.
The section's purpose was to "overrule" the 1951 Texas Supreme Court decision cited below.
The ballot proposition that repealed the section consolidated constitutional provisions concerning state and local retirement systems in Article XVI, Section 67.
- Farrar v. Board of Trustees of Emp. Retirement System of Tex., 243 S.W.2d 688, 693-694 (Tex. 1951) ("Sec. 48a of Art. III of the Constitution, supra, clearly restricts teacher retirement benefits to teachers, while Sec. 62 of Art. XVI, supra, with equal clarity restricts employee retirement benefits to employees. It follows that neither can be suffered to encroach upon the other; nor can any other retirement system be permitted to encroach upon either of them, until the Constitution is amended to permit it.")
