Watchmakers Legislation As It Looks

From The American Horologist magazine, March 1941

Watchmakers Legislation As It Looks

Those states presenting watchmakers legislation report enthusiastically. Massachusetts, Bill No. 480, chairman reports "I believe Massachusetts will be the third state to be successful in the passing of such laws."

New Mexico, very promising. Oregon feels that they will be the third state. Minnesota are very enthusiastic over the outlook of their attempt. Connecticut sends in encouragement. Ohio looks exceptionally good, they hope to be the third state registered. Colorado, making slow progress due to state reorganization work and all such bills as the Watchmakers presented are being held in abeyance by the legislators momentarily.
