Such portion of the sum hereby authorized to be appropriated as will be available for future construction shall be expended by the State highway department, with the approval of the Secretary of Agriculture, for the restoration, including relocation, of roads and bridges of the Federal-aid highway system so damaged or destroyed, in such manner as to give the largest measure of permanent relief, under rules and gulations to be prescribed by the Secretary of Agriculture. Any portion of the sum hereby authorized to be appropriated shall become available when the State of Alabama shows to the satisfaction of the Secretary of Agriculture that it has, either before or after the approval of this Act, actually expended, or made available for expenditure, for the restoration, including relocation, of roads and bridges so damaged or destroyed, a like sum from State funds. Nothing in this Act shall be construed as an acknowledgment of any liability on the part of the United States in connection with the restoration of such roads and bridges : Provided, That out of any appropriations made for carrying out the provisions of this Act, not to exceed two and a half per centum may be used by the Secretary of Agriculture to employ such assistants, clerks, and other persons in the city of Washington and elsewhere, to purchase supplies, materials, equipment, and office fixtures, and to incur such travel and other expense as he may deem necessary for carrying out the purpose of this Act: Provided further, That no portion of this appropriation shall be used except on highways and bridges now in the Federal-aid highway system in Alabama, or the necessary relocation of such roads and bridges.
