CHAPTER 1133 AN ACT For the relief of Rocco Forgione.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to pay, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to Rocco Forgione, Waterbury, Connecticut, the sum of $94.56. The payment of such sum shall be in full settlement of all claims of the said Rocco Forgione against the United States for refund of income tax for the calendar year 1941 (plus penalty and interest thereon) which he was required to pay, on April 19, 1944, in spite of the fact that his income tax for such calendar year had been fully paid on March 13, 1942.

Any person violating the provisions of this Act shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined in any sum not exceeding $1,000. Approved August 31, 1954.
