the state administration legislative

t5. the administration , tax revision
bill soon To go on the 'grill ' in the
state senate, was in danger today
when House ttoll No. 188 came up
for consideration in the lower house.
...The bill, innocent enough in its
wording and introduced innocently,
according to its authors, who are
mi-tubers of the Lancaster county
delegation, gave counties the right
to purchase their assessment and
Charge Double Expense.
"As matters stand now the state
prints assessment and tax rolls and
sends them to counties and many of
the counties don't use them but order
assessment and tax rolls which they
want and we have double expense of
printing," Representative Mellor ex
plained. Representative Ostcrnian asked
that the bill be held up until Monday
iiendinc an investigation of the Mel
lor charges. . A
Phil Hros. secretary ot the de
partment of finance and revenue and
W. 11. Osborne, state tax commis
sioner, denied the Mellor charge this
afternoon and declared that while the
law specified the state shall furnish
such rolls this has not been done
for years as there is no legislative
appropriation for such printing.
However, the state may have done
this at one time." Bross said.
"We do send out copies of up-to-date
tax rolls and county records
but the counties decide whether these

'" The state in Senate File No. 65,
hopes to obtain exclusive power in
selecting and printing county records.
It means the savig of thousand of
dollars to the state, officials de
clared today, as with lidding ccn-
tralized it must be competitive and
under public surveillance as against
the present system of permitting each
county in the state to award its own
. "Well there used to be appli
cation of printing years ago," Rep
resentative Mellor said today, when
the Bross statement was repeated to
horn. -" , , ,
If the Lancaster county s delega
tion bill had gone through and be
come a law and the state bidding on

65 had passed, the two conflicting
statutes might have tied up any print

two years at least, officials tieclared.

hostility, towards creating new state
departments of. a regulatory nature
and killed S. F. 218, creating a state
medical inspector in conjunction

they need their mother."
