§ 345. “To be Appropriated for the Purposes of the Commonwealth.”

For notes on appropriation, see § 350, infra. “The purposes of the Commonwealth” include the payments to the States made by virtue of the Constitution. The States being “parts of the Commonwealth,” expenditure by the federal government in pursuance of its constitutional liability to the States is as much a “purpose of the Commonwealth” as its expenditure upon the services of the federal government.
