“SEC. 5.  The provisions of this Act shall be made applicable to the irrigation systems heretofore completed and to systems that may hereafter be constructed under the provisions of Act Numbered Twenty-one hundred and fifty-two, as amended, any Act or provision of law to the contrary notwithstanding:  Provided, however, That the annual charge provided in section two hereof which shall not exceed six pesos per hectare shall become effective for the irrigation charges due for the year nineteen hundred and thirty-four, and no refund shall be made of charges already paid:  And provided, further, That all cases pending in the courts, for the collection of charges on those lands upon which default has been made, under the provisions of section thirteen of Act Numbered Twenty-one hundred and fifty-two, as amended, or for the collection of irrigation charges for the years prior to nineteen hundred and thirty-four, shall be suspended, and the owners of those lands, as well as the owners of all other lands within the irrigation system, shall be given until the thirty-first day of January, nineteen hundred and thirty-six within which to pay their unpaid irrigation charges, without penalty, as provided in section twenty-nine of Act Numbered Twenty-one hundred and fifty-two, as amended.  The owners of lands certified by the committee created in section three of this Act to be not benefited by the irrigation system shall be relieved of the obligation to pay the charges and the action in court against them shall be discontinued.


“It shall likewise be the duty of the said committee to forward to the clerk of court of the province where a case for default of payment of irrigation charges is pending, a complete list of the defendants who had paid their irrigation charges fully or partially in accordance with the provisions of this Act, for such action as the court may deem proper to take in the premises.”
