FEBRUARY 8, 1932.-Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed

Mr. LEA, from the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany S. 2639)

The Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, to whom was referred the bill (S. 2639) to extend the time for the construction of a bridge across the Missouri River at or near Poplar, Mont., having considered the same, report thereon with a recommendation

that it pass.

The bill has the approval of the War and Agriculture Departments, as will appear by the letters attached.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

Washington, January 18, 1938. Hon. HIRAM W. JOHNSON, Chairman Committee on Commerce,

United States Senate. DEAR SENATOR: Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of January 7, transmitting a copy of a bill (S. 2639) with request that the committee be furnished with such suggestions touching its merits and the propriety of its passage as the department might deem appropriate.

This bill would authorize the State of Montana, the counties of Roosevelt, Richland, and McCone, or any of them, to construct, maintain, and operate a free highway bridge and approaches thereto across the Missouri River at or near Poplar, Mont. The location indicated for the proposed bridge is not on the system of Federal-aid highways approved for Montana. The bill is without objection so far as this department is concerned. Sincerely yours,

R. W. DUNLAP, Acting Secretary.

WAR DEPARTMENT, January 13, 1932. Respectfully returned to the chairman Committee on Commerce, United States Senate.

The accompanying bill (S. 2639, 72d Cong., 1st sess.) to authorize the construction of a bridge across the Missouri River at or near Poplar, Mont., is identical with an act of Congress approved July 3, 1930, subject to the provisions of the general bridge act of March 23, 1906. The time for commencing the construction of the bridge, as implied by section 6 of the general act, expired July 3, 1931, and it is assumed that the purpose of the bill under consideration is to extend the time for construction.

So far as the interests committed to this department are concerned, no objection is known to extending the times for commencing and completing the work of construction for the customary periods of one and three years, respectively, but I am of the opinion that it is preferable to authorize the extension of time in direct terms than to duplicate the existing act. The bill herewith has been amended accordingly and as thus amended I know of no objection to its favorable consideration by Congress.

PATRICK J. HURLEY,

Secretary of War.

The act of Congress referred to in the bill is as follows:

(PUBLIC-No. 6187187 CONGRESS)

(H. R. 12844) AN ACT Granting the consent of Congress to the State of Montana, the counties of Roosevelt, Richland, and McCone, or any of them, to construct, maintain, and operate a free highway bridge across the Missouri River at or near Poplar, Mont.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the consent of Congress is hereby granted to the State of Montana, the counties of Roosevelt, Richland, and McCone, or any of them, to construct, maintain, and operate a free highway bridge and approaches thereto across the Missouri River, at a point suitable to the interests of navigation at or near Poplar, Montana, in accordance with the provisions of an act entitled “An act to regulate the construction of bridges over navigable waters," approved March 23, 1906.

Sec. 2. The right to alter, amend, or repeal this act is hereby expressly reserved. Approved, July 3, 1930.
