Legislation entitled, "Sale, lease and other handling of Public School Land" enacted in 1931, ( Acts 1931, 42nd R.S.,ch. 271, General Laws of Texas) gave the state the power to collect 1/16 of the value of oil and gas (minerals) produced on leases of Public School Lands for the benefit of the Permanent School Fund. The royalties were to be paid through the Texas General Land Office on a monthly basis for the life of the lease.
Earlier legislation, first enacted in 1913 and further amended in 1917 provided the State with a 1/8 royalty for minerals produced on Public School Land.
The Register contains oil and gas production information and royalty payments to the State for the years 1933-1934.
