FLOOD BILL FACES
BATTLE IN HOUSE
$384,000,000 Measure
Passes Senate Without
Bilbo Amendment.
By the Associated Press.
A sharp new struggle over the big
omnibus flood control bill was in
prospect today as House members
looked over the Senate-approved
measure calling lor the spending of
$384,000,000.
The bill originated in the House
last session, but underwent many
changes before it passed the Senate
yesterday. Senator Copeland, Demo
crat, of New York, forecast the House
would insist upon the retention of
its provisions. A Senate-House con
ference wa planned for next week.
As it passed the Senate the bill
carries authorization for 216 flood
fontro! projects, empowers the Presi
dent to select projects he believes
should be started under the $50,000,
000 available the first year and re
quires the interested States and locali
ties to share the cost.
Bilbo Fights Cost-sharing.
The cost-sharing proviso was bit
terly fought by Senator Bilbo, Demo
crat, of Mississippi, who offered an
amendment to require the Federal
Government to bear the whole ex
pense. The amendment was defeated
by a 55-to-15 vote after Copeland de
clared. "If you w’ant a bill that
amendment must be killed."
Bilbo, declaring the New Yorker
was resorting to a “veiled threat" of
a veto, was supported by Senators
Guffey, Democrat, of Pennsylvania;
Clark, Democrat, of Missouri, and
Davis, Republican, of Pennsylvania.
“We are starting on the highway to
spend $12,000,000 on flood control,”
said the Mississippian. “Let us start
right. Let us fix the responsibility on
the beneficiaries. The benefits will
accrue to every man and woman and
should be paid for by the entire Na
tion and not saddled on this section
or that "
Rider Sidetracked.
The Senate also sidetracked a rider
to create a national resources board to
make a survey preparatory to a broad
conservation plan and turned down a
proposal by Guffey to make the Fed
eral Government pay the cost of re
locating railroads and highways in
building the projects.
After passage of the measure, Cope
land described it as “the first pork
less flood-control bill in the history
»f the country."
While the Senate acted on the
omnibus measure the House voted tc
Increase the scop of flood-control proj
ects on the Lower Mississippi, as pro
vided in the Overton bill, from $272.
000,000 to $398,000,000 and prepared
lor a vote on the measure today.
An amendment by Representatives
Miller and Terry, Arkansas Demo
crats. to authorize 26 reservoirs on
the Arkansas and White Rivers, was
adopted. <
