dc.description.abstractLooks to the Texas Court of Civil Appeals’ cases Devon v. San Antonio and Gould v. El Paso. Both examined whether laws passed by the legislature were general, or specific and thus void under the Texas Constitution. The Devon case saw a law that provided for the pension plans of certain municipal workers of counties with a population that fell between 550,000 and 600,000. This was deemed to be a general act, however, the law in Gould, which was similar except it was prescribed for a population between 275,000 and 300,000, was struck down as a specific act. The author suggests that neither case was decided based upon the correct test, and that this area will require further adjudication for clarity.en_US
