the State of California. That provision is not embraced in the present bill. Neither does the present bill contain any project that was considered controversial when said bill H. R. 3961 was under consideration.

Realizing the emergency for the enactment of the projects in the present bill, the Senate Commerce Committee commenced action upon them immediately after the convening of the present Congress. They eliminated all controversial provisions in the bill H. R. 3961, which action was patriotically agreed to by the Senators who had previously urged those measures. The bill then passed the Senate by unanimous vote.

It is understood that several projects not in the present bill are under consideration by the Army engineers under surveys authorized by law. Upon receipt of favorable reports, those measures will be given prompt consideration, and if approved will be reported later in the present session. Controversial projects eliminated by the House or Senate in the last Congress may also be reported in the present session for such action as the House may wish to take.

In view of the fact that all the projects reported in the bill have heretofore been approved by the Senate and House, are now uncontested, and have been the subject matter of extensive hearings during previous sessions of Congress, the committee has concluded that no additional hearings are necessary. Reference is made by the committee to the hearings in both the House and the Senate, and to the reports made on H. R. 3961, for detailed information with regard to the projects herein recommended to be authorized.

It is very important that the pending bill, relieved of items and provisions of dispute and prolonged debate, should enjoy a speedy passage through the House in order that the Army engineers may proceed with their accustomed task of preparing detailed plans and specifications and blueprints for those projects to be constructed after the termination of the war with the view of having projects advertised for letting, and otherwise proceeded with, as rapidly as the termination of hostilities will admit.

The Subcommittee on Appropriations, making appropriations for the civil functions of the War Department, is now considering the appropriations for river and harbor works. The chairman of that committee, the Honorable J. Buell Snyder, advises that prompt and favorable action on this bill will be necessary in order to have provision made for the appropriation of the funds required for construction of the projects in this bill that are recommended for immediate execution necessary in the war effort.

It is recommended that the bill be passed without amendment, as any amendment may lead to controversial matters that will cause delay and possibly jeopardize the passage of the bill. It has now been 7 years since a general river and harbor bill has been enacted, though during that time several bills have been reported by this committee. It is the hope that the House will take the same patriotic view that actuated the Senate, and let these meritorious and uncontroversial measures become law without further delay.
