Up Republican and conservative democratic representatives threatened to give the administration us first defeat of the new Congress today. Ii appeared certain that they would pass a reduced Relief appropriation Over new Deal protests. A $725.000,000 bill�?150.000,000 less than the amount requested by president Roosevelt headed toward a final vote probably late today. As the final hours of debate approached Economy minded representatives appeared certain of winning their fight to slush the $375.000.000 fund estimated by the president As necessary to keep about 3.000.000 unemployed at work until july 1. There were indications even that attempts might be made to Cut it under the $725,000,000 recommended by tic appropriations committee. parliamentary status of the Bill representatives probably will have to vote for or against the $725.000,000 figure Only precluded the possibility of expressing a preference in a Roll Call vote for a larger sum. Because of this House veterans agreed that the administration stood Little Chance of getting the amount originally requested. Representatives personally inclined to Cut Relief funds might vote for More Money they said if they were to be placed squarely on record before their constituents.

House ways and Means committee voted to report the weight tax Repealer favourably to the floor and it would take the no. 1 position on the Houyao calender the first important piece of legislation to come up for actual consideration. Rep. Edward Stein d., Bloomfield a member of the state budget committee reported that the budget Bill would be ready for introduction in about two weeks and predicted it would be As High As two years ago and a a there is some doubt whether it can be kept As this year s biennial budget will be increased Stein predicted because of the $5,651,000 institutional building program approved by last summer s special session. Increased services at the institutions have brought about the necessity for higher maintenance appropriations he said. Stein made no statement concerning probable increased allocations for old age assistance which would boost the budget further. weight tax Repealer was approved unanimously by the was and Means committee. measure also provides for refunding $650,000 to truckers who paid the tax before collections were halted by the motor vehicle department when the act was held invalid by a circuit court judge.

This report was demanded in a House Resolution adopted yester Day after a partisan fight. Quot such a list of course would be quite lengthy and would probably provoke a great Deal of indignation if printed a a som Slid. Considerable doubt was expressed As to whether the House legally could demand such a list. Many informed persons asserted a joint House and s Nat Resolution would be necessary.
