Resowed by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That, notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the sum of $1,260,000 shall constitute the total amount remaining after June 30, 1944, to be withheld by the Social Security Board pursuant to subsection (d) of section 13 of the Railroad Unemploymeat Insurance Act, as amended, from certification to the Secretary of the Treasury for payment for the administration of the Kentucky unemployment compensation law.
