From the Journal of the House of Representatives,

May 15, 1913 (pp. 2267)

To the Speaker of the House of Representatives:

Sir: I herewith return without my approval

House bill no. 1960 (file No. 264, enrolled no. 223), entitled

A bill to amend section 35 of Act No. 285 of the Public Acts of 1909, entitled "An act to provide for the creation of a department of labor; to prescribe its powers and duties; to regulate the employment of labor; to make an appropriation for the maintenance of such department, and to prescribe penalties for the violation of this act," approved June 2, 1909, as amended by Act. No. 191 of the Public Acts of 1911, to provide for the establishments of free employment bureaus in the cities of Grand Haven and Holland.

The State already has five places that could have free employment bureaus, namely: Bay City, Battle Creek, Muskegon, Flint and Traverse City. But there is no appropriation for more free employment bureaus.

The bill is a useless provision owing to the fact that there are no appropriations for conducting such bureaus.

Respectfully,

Woodbridge N. Ferris
