AN ACT
relating to the service area of the Ranger Junior College District. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS: SECTION 1. Section 130.196, Education Code, is amended to read as follows: Sec. 130.196. RANGER JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICT SERVICE AREA. The service area of the Ranger Junior College District includes the territory within: (1) the part of the Ranger Independent School District that is located in Eastland County, except the area that is known as the old Bullock School Land; and (2) [Young,] Comanche, Brown, [and] Erath, and Young counties, except for the part of the Graham Independent School District that is located in Young County. SECTION 2. The change in law made by this Act applies beginning with the 2005 fall semester, except that during the 2005-2006 academic year the Ranger Junior College District may continue to treat the area removed by this Act from the district's service area as if the area were still in the district's service area as necessary to avoid an unreasonable interruption of junior college services in the area.

If this Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this Act takes effect September 1, 2005. ______________________________ ______________________________ President of the Senate Speaker of the House I certify that H.B.
