WHAT LEGISLATURE DID
OF MOST LOCAL INTEREST
Every two years the Oregon legislature meets and
shakes up the laws of the state. When the smoke clears
away, we all wonder just what has been done. Especially,
we're interested to know how legislative actions affect us
and our community.
Briefly, here is a list of acts which arc of direct import
ance to Central Oregon:
Deschutes County created and legalized beyond ques
tion, by the Forbes bill.
Deschutes county salaries fixed, and Crook county sal
Tumalo project: $10,000 appropriated for investigat
ing and mending leaksin the reservoir.
k Prineville Fair : $500 appropriated for beef stock prem
iums. Irrigation code, especially important as regards irriga
tion districts. The details of the code already have been
presented in The Bulletin.
County records: Enabling Deschutes county to secure
records of value to itself alone, without cost of transcrib
ing. Fish and game : The new code, of interest to local sports
men, has been described in The Bulletin.
Rural Credits : Of great importance to all land owners.
Will be explained at length in special article now being pre
pared for The Bulletin.
Schools : The right of recall has been extended to in
clude school directors.
Grain inspection : State aid for grading grain, conf orm-i
ing to the standards of neighboring states, established.
Roads: Auto license fees doubled; county road super
visors eliminated; $6,000,000 bond issue will be voted on
Tourists: $45,000 has been appropriated to advertise
the tourist attractions of the Northwest during the next
w two years, co-operating with Washington and British Co
If Bulletin readers desire detailed information concern
ing the above legislative actions, or any other bills passed
by the legislature, we shall be glad to receive inquiries and
will answer them to the best of our ability. If the infor
mation isn't at hand here, we will obtain it from Salem.

SALEM, Fob. 24. (Special.)
Road legislation occupied much ttraa
and attention during tho legislative
session just closed and much that Is
highly Important to all parts of tho
stato was onactcd. Undor tho bond
ing bill, which goes to tho voters
for approval or rejection In Juno at
a special election, Central Oregon Is
especially well cared for, and Bond
bocomes tho hub from which will rad
iate no less than six Important stato
Tho quarter mill levy for road
work remains in offect. Automobile
licenses nro doubled. A bill, which
passed with tho omorgency clauso,
authorizes issuance ot $1,800,000
In bonds, this amount matching tho
sum avallblo from tho fcdoral treas
ury, undor tho Shacklcford act.
Thcso throo acts aro now In offect
and provldo tho whorowlthal for stato
highway work during tho next two
years, whothor or not tho big bond
ing mcasuro comos into offect nftor
June In addition, tho method or
road administration hos been
HlKlnwiy Hoard CliunRcd.
Formerly stato road work has boon
dlrocted by a stato highway, commis
sion consisting of tho governor, tho
stato treasurer and secretary of stato.
Docauso of tho multitudinous duties
of thoso officials, provontlng thorn
from giving ndoquato attontlon to
tho road administration, hlghwny
supervision has been transferred to
nn Indcpondout highway commission.
It Is to bo composed of throo cltlzons
sleeted by tho governor, ono from
each congressional district.
Tho act making this now provision
carrlod on omorgoncy clauso and Is
now in effect. It Is oxpocted that
Govornor Wlthycombo will select his
commission within two weoks, and
thorcaftor the now road administra
tion will got under way.
Stato pnglnorr Lewis mado stron
uous efforts to rotaln a connection
with tho highway department. Tho
1915 legislature tried to place road
administration undor a soparato high
way engineer, but through technical
imporfoctlons In tho law, Lowls was
left at tho head ot tho department,
undor tho highway commission, as
woll as nominally conducting tho dut
ios ot tho stato engineer's office In
tho legislature Lowls lobblod hard
to bo mado an ox-otflcio mombor ot
tho now commission but attor a hot
fight ho was oxcludcd ontlroly from
participation In road administration.
Itoail Dills Important.
Tho road programmo canslstod ot
six bills of prime Importance There
Is ono known as a proceduro codo
which prescribes methods for tho op
ening, laying out and vacating ot
highways. Horetofo'ro throo differ
ent processes have been avallablo and
thoy havo promoted moro uncertain
ty and confusion than good high
ways. Tho throo systoms havo by
tho procoduro codo boon revised Into
ono workablo system,
has to do with expenditures ot coun
ty funds and administration ot coun
ty road work It docs away with
tho tlmo-honorod supervisor system,
and provides for appointment ot a
county road inastor Instead. In oth
er words, it centralizes authority In
county road work and eliminates tho
haphazard, and cxpenslvo systom so
long In "force In Oregon. It also
specifically ropcals by section num
bers many conflicting road sections
in tho codes and session laws,
lligtmny Codo Notable.
Thero Is, further, an ambitious
measure known as tho state highway
codo. Its objoct Is to prqvldo pro
cedure for construction ot hard-surfaced
highways and for co-operation
ot county and stato in construction
of what is known as stato highways.
It dispenses with tho existing ex
offlclo Btate highway commission,
composed ot elocted state officers,
and provides for appolntmont by tho
governor of a non-salaried commis
sion of tbreo, ono member to be from
each congressional district. It sov
ers the highway engineering depart
ment from tho stato engineer's of-
Oihctl lie iL Nooe Kcp brt.
let. SIt4 hive doubled in put
flco, and gives appointment of a high
way commission. This bill carries
an omorgency clause.
A mcasuro known as nn act to
regulato motor vehicles is, In its
main effect, a road law. It doubles
tho present motor vohlclo license
taxes and dovotes tho whole procoeds
to road work under supervision ot
tho stato highway commission. Tho
old law required that motor vehicle
llconsos bo apportioned to tho coun
ties in which they wcro collected
after payment ot tho cost ot llcenso
tags and other Incidentals of stato
administration. Tho money wnB thusl
scattered and Inefficiently cxpondod
In many Instances. Undor tho now
law tho automobiles will pay, on tho
basis of tho oxlstlng number ot sui
vehicles In Oregon, about $300,000
a year In tho stato road fund.
Still another road bill Is tho Dean
Barrett bonding act. This is a con
tingent or omorgency measure It
authorizes Issuance, In event revenues
from established sources aro not suf
ficient to moot allotments of gov
ernment road funds, bonds In an
amount equivalent to tho doflcloncy.
This bill also carries an omorgency
clauso, and Insures cxpcndlturo in
Oregon of tho cntiro government al
lotment for post roads and forest
roads and an equal sum of stato
monoy as Is required by tho fodoral
act. This assuranco prevails regard
less of tho fate of tho $6,000,000
road bond Issuo to bo submitted at
a special election Juno 4.
Bond System Laid Out.
Tho $6,000,000 bonding act lays
out a definite system of stato high
ways and post roads. Stato high
ways aro to bo paved, hard-surfaced
undor tho provisions of this net. Tho
bond Issuo proposed Is a capitaliza
tion of tho proceeds for tho next 2G
years of tho quarter-mill road lovy
that has oxlstcd for soveral years,
and tho increased motor vohlclo tax.
Thcso revenues on tho basis at tho
prcsont tax valuation and tho oxlst
lng number of automobiles In Oro
gon, will nmortlzo not only tho $C,
000,000, but tho full limit ot bonds
authorized under tho Bean-Barrett
net. In other words, tho Issuanco
ot tho $6,000,000 In bonds and Is-
sunnco of tho full amount ot bonds
authorized by tho Bean-Barrett act
do not mean any Incrcaso In taxa
tion. Tho $6,000,000 proposal Is to
bo submitted to voto of tho pcopla at
a special election Juno 4, at which
titno soveral othor measures will also
go to tho people
Of Indirect bearing on tho road
programmo Is a reduction ot the grav
ity test for gasollno horetoforo es
tablished by law. Government Inves
tigation has shown tho test to bo ot
no valuo, but It has mado gasollno
ono cent a gallon dearer In Oregon.
Elimination of tho test will glvo
Oregon consumers gasollno at tho
snmo prlco as consumers In other
states pay. On an avorago tho sav
ing will Just about oftsot tho Incrcaso
In nutomobllo license taxes In tho
courso of a year.
