APPR JATION TITLE: CONSTRUCTION GENERAL
Buffalo Bayou and Tributaries, Tex.
FKSAL YEARS 1961 & 1962
Mr. BOLAND. This shows a request for fiscal 1962 of $3,500,000. It also shows that the Federal cost on this project has gone up $1,900,000, but the local interests cost has gone down by $2,200,000.
How does this happen? Why is this so?
General FLEMING. The increase in the Federal cost is due to higher price levels, and about $1 million for restoration of complete and partially complete reaches damaged by heavy rains and prolonged wet weather conditions. About $228,000 due to more detailed planning and design, and $240,000 for engineering and design, and supervision and administration.
The decrease in the local contribution is the amount they have been able to save themselves on the road relocations. In other words, the decrease in the local contribution is the decrease on their actual experience of expenses on the purchase of land and making of relocations.
Mr. BOLAND. Are there any questions?
