Roads Program Sent to House Administration Plan Defeated in Senate WASHINGTON <J!— The battle > over ft. massive road-building pro-pram shifted to the House today after the Senate handed President Eisenhower a sharp setback by passing a Democratic rival to his highway plan. The Eisenhower plan was beaten hu-.-ii ui the Senate before that body went on to shout its approval ! of the Democratic measure without a. rollcall. On the decisive test, 13 Republicans deserted the administration while only one Democrat— Kennedy of Massachusetts— supported the President's proposal as a substi- The Democratic measure would set in motion, subject to actual appropriations, a five-year, 18-billion-dollar highway spending program —one of the biggest non-defense projects ever sparked by federal It would be designed to improve and modernize all of die nation's road systems— from major superhighways linking up all parts of the nation to farm-to-market country roads in every state. Of the total, the federal government would put up about S12.600,-000,000 and the slates $5,400,000,000. Federal grants for roads in the first year of the program, tne 11-nancial year starting July 1, 1956, would double present outlays. By the fourth and fifth years, they would be triple. The- federal share would be financed by direct outlays from the Treasury through regular appropriations. This would tend to swell the present federal deficit, and is a chief administration objection to the bill. The key feature of the Eisenhower plan was a 21-billion-dollar bond issue outside the debt limit, to be repaid by earmarking excess gasoline tax revenues for 30 years. But this in rum was the point of heaviest attack by Democrats. Sen. Byrd (D-Va) called it the most unsound financing scheme proposed in his 22 years in the Senate. In all, the administration pro posal called for a 38-million-dollar federal-state program over 10 years, with most of the emphasis on the 40.000-mile system of interstate superhighways.
