when states like Washington and I d
aho are trimming their overhead .
to 30 per cent and have abolished
commissions and boards galore.
As tlie commission recommends no
reduction of taxes It must be as- !
sumed that the need of state rev
enues is so great that all the receipts
of an income tax would be absorbed
by new expense.
The only way to restore property
values and confidence in investments
is to Inaugurate tax reductions ail
along the line, make those who are
absorbing the state revenue take I
their share in retrenchment.
