The Secretary of Agriculture requested clarification on federal legislation regarding cost of water supply and sanitary systems for buildings of the Forest Service.

In so far as concerns Forest Service water supply and sanitary systems, section 703 of the act of September 21, 1944, must be considered inoperative unless and until the Congress has taken action in particular appropriation act. Such conclusion appears in consonance with the limitation control provision of such act. The act of May 27, 1930, providing the $8,000 authorization was designed to overcome the inadequacy of the limitation. If, as contended, the $8,000 authorization is no longer adequate, the matter is one for presenting to the Congress.
