Glynn Signs Bill Making Half Available Now, the Rest Oct. 1.
ALBANY, April 23.—For road improvements $5,000,000 of the second $50,000,000 highway bond issue becomes available immediately, and a like amount on Oct. 1 under the terms of the Frawley bill which Gov. Glynn signed to-day.
At the same time the Governor announced the veto of a bill designed to appropriate $675,000 for interest on highway bonds issued under the new referendum. His veto, he said, was based upon advice from Attorney General Carmody and Highway Commissioner Carlisle that the $10,000,000 appropriation would not require an interest appropriation at present.
The Governor's approval of the bill appropriating $10,000,000 of the second referendum fund for the construction of new highways will permit the immediate advertisement of all those roads for which plans and specifications have been prepared and which are to be built in accordance with the most recent opinion as to durability and permanency. The approval of this bill will also permit the highway engineers to design this Summer the most important roads for the completion of a great trunk line in time for advertising in the Fall. This will mean that the contractors will be able to do all the preliminary work on their roads before the snow falls. The end of another year, officials believe, ought to see the completion of all the main trunk lines, the construction of which will represent the most permanent type of roads.
