Memorandum filed with approved bills for Street improvements in Brooklyn (S. 704, 705)

132 Public Papers of Governor Roosevelt

The general purpose of the bill is so good, the change so vitally necessary, and the provisions as a whole will tell so much for the betterment of the schools, that I deem it best to sign the bill. Unquestionably it will need amendment, and I shall call the matter specifically to the attention of the charter commission; but this commission can in my judgment deal better with the situation created by the enactment into law of this measure than with the situation as it now exists.

Memorandum Filed With Approved Assembly Bills No. 704 and No. 705, Providing for Improvements in Bedford and Remsen Avenues, Brooklyn

State of New York
Executive Chamber
Albany, May 4, 1900

Memorandum filed with Assembly bill printed No. 704, introduced by Mr. Remsen, entitled “An Act providing for the opening, extending, laying out and improving of Bedford Avenue, in the Borough of Brooklyn, in the City of New York”—Approved, and

Assembly bill printed No. 705, introduced by Mr. Remsen, entitled “An Act providing for the opening, laying out and improving of Remsen Avenue, in the Borough of Brooklyn, in the city of New York”—Approved

The case as regards these two bills is so peculiar that favorable action in reference to them seems necessary.
