TO INITIATE BILLISHIPYARD WORKERS
TO 1920 TAX LEVY
Tax Commission Decides It
Will Take This Scm To
Run The State.
BllDINGS LEFT OUT
Cuts Made In Practically All
Theoretical Budgets Sub
mitted. A bill to add $940,000 to the regular
stato tax levy next year will be in
itiated by the stat tax commission
for submission to the voters at the
general election in November.
At s meeting of the tax commission
yfeptierday afternoon it was decided
that sum at least would be needed to
meet the increased cost in state gov
ernment. ' Budgets from all the state institu
tions, departments and other state aid
ed activities, submitted to the tax
commission totaled !'.315,4:17, which
was 2,(.i(M,4Sci in sxcess of the con
templated income of the sta'e in the
iMxt tws years from regular channels.
By providing for an additional
$940,000 the tax commission cut the
excess requests a little more than half.
If tho fvotcra approve the 940,0i0
additional levy, the total state tax for
1919 will still bb lower than it was in
1914, wheu the state taxes amounted to
4,ltt."i,000 for the year, it is pointed
In reducing the excess requests for
funds, the commission practically elim
inated all provLsion for new buildings.
State Treasurer Kay strongly objected
to- this, as he said -Uj:pe.yers expected
to pay high' tsxes, tKs sauis as they
are paying higher prices for everything
else, and provision should be made for
buildings. He voted, however, with
the other three members of the commis
sion for tho 940,ooo levy, but made
the statement that he wanted it under
stood that this levy was for 1919 only
and a special election should be htld to
vote an additional levy for 1920, thus
providing a greater sum for slate pur
poses. Secretary of State Oleott prior to
the meeting had gone over the indi
vidual budgets anil made such cuts
as he considered proper and they were
adopted by the commission almost with
As the situation now is, if the voters
approve tho 940,W0 extra levy, the
legislature will have ) H.3S9.931 to
spend. If the law makers want to
spend more than that they must pro
vide for o, special clticrion to vote
another additional tax or expect de
ficiencies to bo created.
The budgets considered by the tux
cmnniissinn are not official They
'may bo altered before they go to the
legis.ature. Die official budgets will
be submitted to the secretsrv of state
later in the year and he nill prepare
