SECOND DEFICIENCY APPROPRIATION BILL FOR 1935
HEARINGS CONDUCTED BEFORE THE SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS, CONSISTING OF MESSRS. JAMES P. BUCHANAN (CHAIRMAN), EDWARD T. TAYLOR, WILLIAM W. ARNOLD, WILLIAM B. OLIVER, JOHN N. SANDLIN, CLIFTON A. WOODRUM, JOHN J. BOYLAN, JOHN TABER, ROBERT L. BACON, AND LLOYD THURSTON, IN CHARGE OF DEFICIENCY APPROPRIATIONS, ON THE DAYS FOLLOWING, NAMELY:

That has been revised somewhat, and now you have $53,000,000 in this estimate. The first question I want to ask you is this: Under the provision for public buildings outside of the District of Columbia, how much will take to put a public building in every Congressional District, except, of
