TO BE PRESENTED
Stat highway construction advo
cates have a new, automatic financ
ing? plan under" consideration for
presentation to the legislature in
January, which, it adopted, will give
the highway .commission authority
not only to fix the interest rate on
bonds according to the condition of
the money market from time to
time, but also to Issue- bonds on its
own motion up to the constitutional
4 per cent limitation whenever con;
etructlon demands it and there is!a
gap between the bonds outstanding
and the limitation. ,',--'-"
; .oiaiea in anowier way, it is
to ask the legislature to grant authority
to the highway commission to authorise
and issu-state highway bonds at any
time n any sums within the limita
tion isifinever additional funds are
work and where bonds are available
under the limitation through the retire
ment of previously Issued bonds or
otherwise. - ,:.
WILL 1CEED $lMfl,00
The highway commission will have ex
tended, or will have contracted to ex
pend, all of the proceeds .from the $30,-
000.900 of state highway o bonds so rar
aumonzea or law uy uu cnu ui
At that time it is expected that the
Columbia river highway will have been
-completed from -.The Dalles to Astoria
as wen a mi facmc nisnway irora
Portland to the California-line, on both
the east and.west side routes. -
The commission Is now spending ap
proximately $10,000,000 a year, so that
if it is to continue at its present rate
of construction through 1922 it will be
necessary for the next legislature to
provide an additional $10,000,000 of
bonds, which would run the total Issues
up to the constitutional 4 per cent road
bonding limitation, or nearly so.
Up to the present time the legislature
has provided bond issues. In specific
amounts so that when-one issue -was
exhausted It was necessary to go to
th tarinlatiir for ftnnthAP. . It la has
proposed to change this policy so that
the highway commission can finance fu
ture construction without further re-
TO BUIDGE OVEB GAP-
Within a short time outstanding bonds
to. be retired. . Every block that may
be retired by. the commission will widen
the gap between the outstanding .totals
and the constitutional limitation, and
make ,it lawfully possible to authorize
and issue' new bonds in an equivalent
amount. To make the picture plain,
it la apparent that if the next legisla
ture authorizes the Issuance of an addi
tional $10,000,000 of highway bonds the
constitutional limitation will have been
reached and no more bends can be law
fully issued. If, however. $10,000,000 of
the now outstanding Issues were to be
retired x by payment to the holders the
banded debt would automatically tu
$1X1,000,000 below the constitutional lim
itation aad It would be lawful to issue
that amount in new bonds.
The new plan fti merely to give the
hlrhwav commission authority to fill
any gap that may be caused by retire-'
ment of old bond issues through the saite
of new Issues and thus keep the total
highway i bonding- credit of the state
working, should the commission deem
It advisable, until such time as the en
tire highway program had been fin
anced and completed in other words,
to maintain the total highway bond
issues up to the 4 per cent limitation
so long as new construction would re
quire it. ?- - .. (
AJTOTHETt 8TOB9I LOOMS i '
Tied Into this proposal "Is the sug
gestion that the highway commission be
given the authority to designate the in
terest rate on bonds from time to time
to meet ; the current cost of money' bor
rowed. It would fix a maximum inter
est rate up to "which .the commission
could go, and not beyond. This because
of the fact that highway bonds have
been forced below par on sale in the
past, presumably due to the -low interest
rate fixed by existing law.
There is opposition to this," however,
on the theory that past discounts have
' equalised the interest rate or rather
the earning power of the bonds to the
buyer so that it is, in practice, imma
terial to the buyer whether low interest
bonds are sold at a discount or high
Interest bonds at par. - j .
On the other hand, fit is contended
from the viewpoint of maximum con
struction resultant from bond money
that every dollar lost through discount
means a dollar less for road construc
tion,, . .
The entrance of another $10,000,000
road bonding bill in the coming legis
lative program undoubtedly, will tend to
raise the legislative temperature, for
there are members of the assembly who
contend that - the highway program
should 'pause a little with the comple
tion. of the" Columbia river and Pacific
highways until the future construction
.program could ,:be . .more definitely
mapped out than' at present
On the other- hand, there are many
who contend that the future state con
struction program should be put in the
hands of the highway commission with
full power to map out . routes ' and con
struct them. It begins to look as
though the road program would again be
-one of the main storm centers of the
session. 1 .1
