Motions and Resolutions.

Mr. Whiteley submitted a communication from himself to the Secretary of the State Administrative Board and the Secretary's reply thereto, relative to emergency appropriations.

On motion of Mr. Whiteley,
The correspondence was ordered spread on the Journal, as follows:

February Tenth,

1925. Mr. Fred Perry, Secretary, State Administrative Board, Lansing, Michigan. Dear Mr. Perry:

The question has often arisen as to what authority the Administrative Board has in reference to making so-called emergency appropriations when the Legislature is not in session.

Would it be asking too much of you to quote the section of statute under which these appropriations are made and also give me a list of all such appropriations or other expenditures made since the last session of the Legislature and which were not expressly authorized by the Legislature.

Very truly yours,
HARRY H. WHITELEY

amination of financial conditions; State Administrative Board
