SALARY BILLS PASS Income Tax BUI Passes House and . Sales Tax Reported out of Com mittee; Revenue Big Issue. By JAP CRAWFORD. Salem, Feb. 28.-Results are now beginning to show from the weeks of labor of several of the principal committees of the 37th legislative assembly, with the house this week concurring in all the ways and means bills, representing the larger proportion of the work of that body, which came to a vote. And this afternoon the first major revenue producing bill was given the sanc tion of the house without a dis senting vote. It is a revision of the present income tax law, expect ed to raise between $600,000 and $750,000 additional revenue. This afternoon also the taxation and revenue committee reported out fa vorably the revamped special ses sion sales tax bill, estimated, if passed, to raise $3,000,000 m 1933 and $6,000,000 In 1934. It is expected that the sales tax bill will not meet as easy a fate in the house as did the income tax measure, but in lieu of any other definite program of relief from the property tax burden its passage is practically assured. This presump tion may be made In view of the fact that one objection prevailing In the special session, that of not knowing how much revenue would be needed, Is removed. There are still those who object to the princi ple of the tax, and will let It be known while casting an aye vote in order to maintain the credit of the state. This new sales tax bill is different from that of the special session mainly in that it provides a one-half of one percent tax on gross sales of manufacturers. It leaves the tax on gross sales of tangible personal property and personal services to consumer at 2 percent With Its provisions of property-tax offset and distribution of 50 percent of the net proceeds to the counties, it has overcome objections to the for mer bill on the grounds of discrim ination against the counties in the distribution of the revenue. The bill was worked out of committee In Its present form by close coopera tion of the governor, state tax com mission and the taxation and rev enue committee. The revenue program, as worked out by the committee Is expected to give the state a nearly-balanced budget, should the estimates of the committee prove correct The highways and highway rev enue committees also came out with its program this week which It claims will meet the needs of the highway department for the ensu ing biennlum. Two of its major bills were presented to the house this afternoon as a special order of business. One of these bills sets a flat $5 license fee on automobiles and adds another cent on the gaso line tax, while the other is the truck and bus rcgulartory measure. This committee's program was developed by numerous public hear ings and heated contentions of the different factions affected, and the two bills were finally made a spec ial order of business after much jockeying around and an averted attempt to send them back to com mittee for more rehashing. The program of the committee contains the so-called Dunne plan of taxa tfon, which was adopted over . the Alen plan to insert an ad valorem property tax on each automobile in stead of an added gasoline tax. A strong demand still existed in the house for a property tax, even though a gasoline tax were needed to raise sufficient revenue, as the bills came up for final passage this afternoon. The Allen plan came out of committee with a minority report favoring its passage ahead of the Dunne plan bill, but was laid on the table awaiting the arrival of the latter bill. Representative Gouley's bill call ing for the holding of a state con stitutional convent'on for the pur pose of voting on repeal of the 18th amendment, slid through the house easily this week, and was on the senate calendar for today. Some house drj'S laid aside personal prej udices on the prohibition question to give the people a chance to ex press themselves on the matter. Each ensuing day finds tiring leg. islators less prone to dissect every bill into minute particles, and with freer use of the gag rule and a ban on explanation of votes, they are attempting to rid the hopper of Its still large residue of measures and get back to their homes. But while taking more or less snap judgment, the attitude largely prevails of passing nothing unless It appears to be good, and necessary. It is expected there will be many night sessions this week to hurry along the remaining business in an attempt to adjourn Saturday, but tonight will be a relaxation period as the facilities of the lawmakers are turned over to the "third house" (Continued on Page Four) IONE JENTIE K.
