Mr. MOTHERWELL:

There is no change. The last three lines of the resolution explain the provision:

-and in lieu thereof to re-enact the said subsection with the same rates of valuation for compensation but without the said limitation as to operation.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

If I have it correctly,

the old act provided two-thirds valuation, and it provided a maximum for a thoroughbred and a maximum for the non-thoroughbred, and those were $250 and $150, were they not?
