been made available in part through
utilization of the 1200,000,000 highway
bond issue for secondary road needs,
leaving other highway funds free for
primary road "work. Governor Scott
- has earmarked all surplus funds pro
duced by increased receipts from auto

the $200,000,000 bond issue program.

bond rovneif. '', Workwill continue1 oft

the next two years."' J "s -
Meanwhile, 'Df. Henry W. Jordan,
Highway Commission" Chairman, has
announced that special emphasis will
