From the Journal of the Senate,

Message to Legislature. (May 19, 1915. pp. 1537.)

The Speaker of the House of Representatives,

Dear Sir:- I herewith return without approval

House bill No. 475 (file No. 294), enrolled No. 145, entitled

An act to amend section fourteen of number two hundred twenty-two of the Public Acts of nineteen hundred one, entitled, 'An Act relating to plumbing and drainage, and providing for the inspection thereof, and for the examination, regulation, licensing and registration of plumbers, and for the punishment of offenders against this act."

I disapprove of House enrolled Act No. 145 (House bill 475, file 294), because the regulations of this bill conflict with the regulations of the Board of Health. Plumbing and drainage in our cities is of sufficient importance to warrant regulation by the City Board of Health. I therefore decline to sign the bill.

Yours very truly,

Woodbridge N. Ferris
