NUMBER 10.
VOLUME XXVII.
FEDERAL ROM
Tho state highway departments of
the 48 states aro unanimously behind
President Harding's demand for con
tlnued Federal co-opqration with the 1
states In building highways, based |
on roads interstate in character and
maintained by daily.care with state
funds.
, .. ,
As tho servants of the people who
pay the taxes, whether thought
state of federal funds, charged with
the proper expenditure of these
funds despute pressure from petty
local interests or from those j
would build only a certain kind of
road or limited to a mileage to gain
some personal end, these men have
for months been seeking for a sane
middle ground of a constructive
character upon which tho stato and
federal governments can establish a
permanent policy.
th ° executive commit
teo of this organization of state high-1
way officials spent several days per
fecting a bill which has been under
general discussion for some time. Af
len, 1 ? Sr' 'ÄV 'waUace
Congre "min g Dowelî. r a a^kln^ mtm:
her of the roads committee of the
House, and Senator Townsend, chair
«£«»?«? ?h«l r h«v« Surf
the Senate, they have submitted to
tho Congress a bill which they be
lievo meets not only the present con
dit ions but is also forward looking
bers
and will make operative a system not ,,

interstate commerce and .aid in «1° I idm

Accenung'as iSS"Preal-1«"
dent Harding's statement in his mes ,ra
sago that: -ho
"With the principle of federal par- |
tbjipation acceptably established,
probably never to be abandoned, it is
important to exert federal influence
in developing comprehensive plans I
looking to the promotion of com-I
merce and apply our expenditures in
the surest way to guarantee a public |
return for money expended."
They proposed that:
"In approving projects to receive | : n
federal aid, the secretary of agricul I
turo shaH give preference to such | the
projects an will wxpedito tho com |
•pletion of an adequate and connect- 1
ed system of /roads, interstate in I
character. Before any projects are I
approved, each state, through itsltution.
state highway department, shall se-1
lect or designate not to exceed seven I
per cent of the total road mileage IT.
of said state as shown by the rec-1 if
ords of the state highway depart
ment at tho time of the passage of |
this act. Upon this system all fed- *o
oral aid apportionments shall be ex
pended. Roads which may receive
federal aid shall be divided into two
classes, one of which shall be known
aa primary or Interstate roads and j
shall not exceed three-sevenths of the I be
total mileage which may receive fed
eral aid, and the other of which shall
be known as secondary or Inter-)
county roads, and shall consist of I
tho remainder of the mileage which
may receive federal aid. The secre-1
tary of agriculture shall have auth
orlty to approve in whole or in part |
tho systems as designated or to re
quire modifications or revisions I
thcreof. Provided, that the states
shall submit to the secretary of ag-1
rlculture, for his approval, any of
th<e proposed revisions of the desig-|ed
nated systems of roads above pro
vided for. Not less than sixty per I
cent of all federal aid allotted to
any state shall be expended upon the
primary or interstate roads until J
provision has been made for the im- I
provement of the entire system of I
such roads. Whenever provision has
been made by, or on behalf of any
state, for the completion and main- I
tenance of a system of interstate I
and inter-county roads equal to sev-I
en per cent of thft total milea.ge of
such state, said state, through its I
state highway department, by and I
with the approval of its secretary of |
agriculture, la hereby authorized to
add to the mileage of the interstate I
and Inter-county system as funds be-1
come available for the construction |
and maintenance of such additional |
mileage.
With this section added to the I
present law, the state highway ot- J
ficials believe that the position tak-1
en by the president will be met where J
he says: "Congress ought to pre-1
scribe conditions to federal appro- I
pnriations which will necessitate a
consistent program of uniformity |
which will Justify the federal out
lay."
,1
Must Provide Stato Funds
Much of the clticlsm that has been J
heaped upon the states In their road I
building program would give the Idea
that federal funds had been doled
out promiscuously, when In reality I
thin condition if it has assumed the
position of a condition, obtains in a
very few states and then only be-j
cause the states, as such, were de
pendent upon the Counties to raise
the funds necessary to co-operate
with tho federal appropriation.
To meet this situation. It- is pro
posed that "any state desiring to
avail itself of the benefits of this
act, shall, not later than two years
after the adjournment of the first
regular session of the state legtsla
tare from and after the passage and
approval of this act, provide state
funds each year to at least equal the
amount apportioned for such year by
