legislature he said 1 dont know whether the leg islature had the authority to ap propfiate the money but as long as we have money appropriated for planes we will spend it for planes However whenthe legislature hears about the attorney generals ruling it might not give us the money for planes in our next ap propriations and wed be sunk he said JPesch said planned to sut mitto the next legislature
