Indicates Veto Awaits Any
Legislation Authorizing
New Projects This Year
WASHINGTON, March 14.——
The National Rivers and Harbors
Congress received two messages
from President Roosevelt today —
one directly, praising its "excellent
service” to the public in sponsoring
waterway improvements, the other
indirectly indicating a veto awaited
any legislation to authorize such
projects this year.
At the annual convention of the
organization, which seeks to influ
ence congress to provide appropria
tions for navigation, flood control
and water conservation develop
ments, Chairman Bailey (D-NC) ol
the senate commerce committee in
formed the delegates it was highlj
unlikely any navigation projects au
thorizations would be approved ai
this session.
The reason, he said, was the neces
sity of scaling down federal expen
ditures of all kinds, with rivers and
harbors work sharing the cuts.
Senator Bailey reported that Mr
Roosevelt believed enough naviga
tion and flood control projects had
been authorized already to last twe
or three years, and was opposed tc
new authorizations this year.
Despite this warning from the
chief executive, Chairman Whit
tington (D-Miss) of the house flood
control committee informed the con
vention that hearings would be
started next Monday on an omnibus
authorization bill for new flood con
trol projects.
Last year, he said, no projects
were authorized, efforts being con
centrated on obtaining an appro
priation $50,000-000 higher than
budget estimates. This year house
flood control advocates had set new
authorizations as their goal, Whit
tington said, and a bill would be re
ported by his committee proposing a
program to cost from $150,000,000 tc
$175,000,000.
The hearings would last until
April 1, Whittington said, and the
projects considered would be those
on w’hich the army engineers hac
submitted reports since passage ol
the 1938 flood control act.
