One of the three bills passed last
week that authorizing extension of
time for filing tax levies will be ve
toed by the Governor with the ap
proval of the legislature. The relief
sought by the bill is in Grant and
Clatsop counties, where the law re
quiring levies to be certified to the
County Clerk by January 1 was not
complied with by certain school dis
tricts or municipalities. ' If the bill
should become a law, collection in
other counties would be delayed un
til past the rebate period, and the
tax collection system would be put
out of joint. Next week the Legis
lature will enact a new bill to apply
only to Grant and Clatsop counties.
