House passage repealed similar House action in the Legis- lature's regular session last year, when Cote won acceptance ot a loan regulation bill only lo sec it die in the Senate. It was uncertain whal form of farm road hill the House will con- sider Monday. The Scnale has passed a measure appropriating million for building farm roads ID I be fiscal year starting Sept. I, 1962, plus million for mainten- ance. Mcllhany's original bill was iden- tical lo the Seuate passed meas- ure (SB1) by Sen. Neville Colson. The House Agriculture Commillee amended it lo raise Ihe niainlen- ance money lo million an set a sliding scale for maintenance funds to increase year unlil 1972. Mcllhany said he would call for meeting of (he committee at a.m. Monday and ask approv- al .of the Senate bill, rather than try to pass a separate bill in the House. H the House accepts the farm road bill without amend, ment. It will go lo Gov Price Daniel Jar yclo or signature. If the House passes ils own version, the measure must go back to the Senate for approval. The Texas Farm Bureau and the farm road appropriation passed in Ihe Legislature's first called session. Mr. said money for maintenance should IM appropria- ted along with the million or- iginally earmarked for construc- tion. The loan measure is the second of Daniel's maior requests passed by the House. The other is an es- cheat bill requiring hanking insti- tutions to report money in dnr-' ment accounts.
