Sales of houses or other buildings to be removed from land purchased for highway rights of way would not be legal under the provisions of chapter 185, Laws of 1937.  The Department of Highways may advertise such property for sale in any additional manner which, in its opinion, the interests of the state require, such advertisements to be supplemental to any offers of sale made by the Department of Public Institutions.  It is suggested that such additional advertisement be arranged in liaison with the Department of Public Institutions.
