b Constitutional Amendments Face
Voters in November 4 Election
LINCOLN — Nebraskans will
ballot next month on six pro
posed changes in their Constitu
tion. The issues were placed be
fore the voters by the 1951 legis
lature. Bills to plaoe five other
changes on the ballot were re
Tne following is a factual sum
mary of the proposed amend
ments. It is intended to argue
neither for nor against the pro
posals and is based largely on
material supplied by Dr. Roger
Shumate, research director of the
Nebraska legislative council.
* * *
Equalization of Salaries
Of Courts, Boards, Commissions
This proposal simply would
change the time when salary in
creases—or decreases— provided
by the legislature become effec
Under the present lawT, when
the legislature changes the sal
aries of, for example, the judges
of the supreme court, the judges
are barred from receiving it flur
ing their current term of office.
Since most boards, commissions,
etc., are made up of members
whose terms are staggered, this
means that some members receive
more than others.
If the proposal is adopted, it
>will mean that whenever a salary
increase is voted, all the members
of a court or board will receive
it whether they are beginning
new terms or not.

Motor Vehicle Taxation—
This is the only one of the six
proposals about which any ser
ious controversy has arisen. Some
educators have questioned wheth
er it would curtail income to
school districts. The attorney
general’s office has said that
whether it does or not is entirely
up to the legislature.
The primary need for the
change, according to Sen. Richard
D. Marvel of Hastings, its spon
sor, is the loss of many thousands
of dollars in delinquent moior
vehicle taxes every year.
Briefly, the amendment would
allow the legislature to “provide
for a different method of taxing
motor vehicles.’’ Motor vehicles
are now classed as tangible pro
perty and are taxed at the own
Said the legislative council:
“When the public hearing was
held on this proposed amend
ment, no one appeared in opposi
tion to it. The bill was supported
by the chairman of the County
Commissioner’s Association, who
stated that his organization was
unanimous in its support. Rctire
senthtives of the Omaha city
► council and of the Omaha school
district also spoke in its favor.
Tne Nebraska Motor Carriers as
sociation also appeared in its be
half and it passed the legislature
without a dissenting vote.
“The fact should be emphasized
that, while the amendment en
visages s, me sort of motor ve
hicle tax system to take the place
of the present property tax on
these vehicles, the proceeds from
whatever new tax may be levied,
will continue to be allocated -o
each county and taxing district
in the same proportion as under
the present tax law.
* * *
Salaries of Legislators—
This is a proposal to raise the
salary of members of the legisla
ture from $872.09 a year to
Present legislative salaries were
set in 1935 and have not been
Said the council: “Most legis
lators do not expect to be highly
paid for their services, but many
cannot afford to serve at present
because the salary scarcely covers
the actual and necessary ex

Slate Board of Education—
This proposal would hand the
“supervision and administration
of the school system of-the state.”
to a six-member board, elected
by the people from six districts,
as regents of the University of
Nebraska are now elected. They
won If >r six-year terms
without pay, except for their
le board would name, and fix
the salary of the commisioner
of education who would serve as
the executive officer of the board.
Freeman B. Decker, the present
state superintendent, testified in
favor of a state board before the
last legislature. He said the plan
was educationally sound. Numer
ous other organizations sent rep
resentatives to the legislature’s
hearing to endorse the proposal.
There was some opposition to
the ^lan The legislative council
says, “Mr. G. E. Kolterman of
the Rur alSchool Board associa
] tion of Pierce county stated that
he Ihought the amendment would j
lead to centralization in the edu- j
cational system and that his or
ganization was in favor of keep
ing the -superintendent on an
elective basis as at present.”
* * *
This proposal does not provide
for the calling of a constitutional
convention. The legislature killed
a bill which woud have provided
that. Instead, it proposed that
when and if a convention is call
ed, it shall be made up of more
than 43 members, as the present
constitution provides. The amend
ment would set the number at
no more than 100, with the exact
number to be prescribed by the
* * •
Publication of Proposed
The council’s report says:
“The present provision of the
constitution requires proposed
amendments to be published once
each week for four weeks immed
iately preceding the election at
which they are to be voted onf
and in at least one newspaper in
each county. The only purpose of
the proposal now under discus
sion is to reduce this requirement
to three weeks and thus reduce
the cost to the state of publish
ing proposed amendments.”
