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:

MONDAY, MAY 20, 1935.

COLUMBIA

STATEMENT OF REAR ADMIRAL CHRISTIAN J. PEOPLES, DIRECTOR PROCUREMENT DIVISION, TREASURY DEPARTMENT

AMOUNT REQUIRED FOR CONSTRUCTION OF PUBLIC BUILDING IN EACH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

The CHAIRMAN. Admiral, the first item of the $300,000,000 for ordinary regular public works purposes was $45,000,000 for public buildings outside of the District of Columbia. 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
