PAUL State High- way Department said today it has j shelved seven million dollars in j road improvement projects to await outcome of proposed Consli- lutional Amendment No. 5 in the Nov. 4 General Election. I If the controversial amendment I wins, motor vehicle license revenue which now goes only into state highway funds would be split three ways. About 26 million dollars comes annuaDy from license sales. The I amendment provides that 65 per cent or would go into j state funds, 25 per cent or 000 into the 87-county road funds, I and 10 per cent or into i the 77 municipal road funds. That would mean 9 million dollars less j for state road projects. 35 Projects Decision to defer expenditure j of the 7 million dollars earmarked j for 35 projects next up on the j department priority list was made last month, a department spokes- man said. If the amendment is adopted it will not mean all the projects will be scrapped but the timetable will be set back. This is the explanation given by the department: Proposed lettings of construction project contracts, totaling about 7 million dollars, had been scheduled on Oct. 10 and Oct. 31, and Nov. 21. Final Diversion The department proposed to go ahead with the jobs, using stata funds. However, with the possibil- ity of the fund diversion, with the consequent loss of the 9 million dollars, a re-evaluation was order- ed. As of Sept. 1, the department anticipated receiving in income for the balance of the fis- cal year, ending next June 30, over and above funds already put to use. Out of this, had to be set aside for construction contracts let Aug. 29, plus 000 for contracts let Sept. 10, and at least 2 million dollars for a reserve deemed the minimum for maiLtenance betterment opera- tions.
