Senator B. L. Eddy of Rose
burg has filed with the secretary
of state an affirmative argument
for the voter's pamphlet in behalf
of the proposed constitutional
amendment introdnced by him at
the recent legislature to empower
the governor to eto the emer
gency clause on legislative acts.
The governor now has author
ity to veto single Items in appro
propriaton bills. The Eddy mea
sure would give him that power
relative to other hills, but the
purpose is to allow him to use
his judgment on the emergency
clause which sometimes is a-
ached to a measure to prevent
be referendum being invoked
against It. The proposed amend
ment Is to be voted on at the spe
cial election on Jun7 next.
Senator Kddy's affirmative ar
guwment follows in part:
Clause. Mocks Ileferendum
"When the legislature passes
a bill and attaches to it a valid
emergency clause, providing that
the bill shall take effect upon Its
passage, there can be no referen
dum on the bill, that it la to say.
It cannot be refened to the peo
ple for their approval or rejec
tion. It. becomes a law at once.
It is often necessary, in order to
protect the public Interests, that
this should be the rase. There is.
however, a tendency to misuse
the emergency clause, and to at
tach it .when not necessary or pro
"It was intended that the pow
er of the referendum should gen
erally be . Invoked as to acts of
the legislative assembly, and it
is not often that an emergency
clause is attached to a bill in or
der to prevent a referendum.
though that has,' perhaps, been
done. In addition to the possibil
ity of defeating the referendum.
the emergency clause Is objec
tionable in that It makes an act
oi the legislature a law before the
people of the state have a chance
to understand it. The original
provision of the constitution that
no act shall take affect until ?
days after the adjournment of
the session allowed time for the
publication of the laws, and for
people to understand them.
Fairness Is I rsed
"The same reasons which jus
tify the existence of the veto pow
er seem to rurnrsa argument for
the amendment now proposed. It
took long agitation to bring
about the amendment of the con
stitutlon ao at to permit the veto
of single items in appropriation
bMls. and. thla amendment was
due to the fact that objectionable
items in hills appropriating mon
ey were often placed alongside
meritorious and necessary items
of public expenditure, and yet
each bill must be approved or re
jected as a wnole. If the amend
ment ' now proposed shall be
adapted the governor will have
no reason to veto a good bill be
cause an emergency clause has
been unwisely added to It. lie
can veto that clause and allow
the bill- to stand on its merits
and subject to a referendum if
the people so desire. In the ab
sence of the referendum it would
take effect at the expiration of
90 days from the adjournment of
the legislative session.
"The proposed amendment
would enable the governor to
bring his judgment to bear as to
the necessity of the emergency
clause, and it wonld prevent him
from making the- emergency
clause an excuse or pretext for
vetoing the whole bill. As mat
ters stand now, there is opportnn
ity for the governor to make the
emergency clause "the ostensible.
reason for a veto, which is really
based ou other grounds. ' We do
done la any specific case, but!
simply call attention to the pil-i
bility. It is not the purpose of
this argument to either commend J
or condemn past ecxrclse of the
"If It be said that the proposed
amendment would enlarge the ve
to power, we answer that & the
constitution now stands the gov
ernor may veto the whole of any
bill.' and to enable' him to veto
a mere appendage of the bill,
namely, the emergency clause,
and allow the body of the bill to
stand, simply increases the oppor
tunity of the governor to dls
criminate, without really adding
to the sum of his powers. The
existence of an emergency clause
has to do only with the time of
the taking effect of the act.
namely, whether the act shall op
erate at once or at the end of
"The chief reason for the
amendment is to prevent undue
encroachment upon the referen
dum power of the people. Cora
plaint has been made that the
legislature seeks at times to pre
vent measure from being sub
mitted to the people and accom
plishes this object by the use of
the emergency clause. We do
not think this often happens, and
yet there Is at times disposition!
In the legislature to use the emer
gency clause where it is unnec
essary. The Tact that tne gov
ernor could veto any emergency
clause and allow the remainder of
a bill to stand would not only
protect the referendum power In
fact, but would also tend to anay

arises as to" the ' motives' of the
legislature- In using the emergen
cy clause. The amendment is In
the Interest of good government
and of public confidence and re

Joining the ranks of the grow

regular Thursday luncheon held

strong disapproval to the raise,

other organizations throughout

been called an "outrageous impo
