uhc 9 - Governor Signs Bills On Housing ** SALT LAKE...
Governor Signs Bills On Housing ** SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Gov. Calvin L; Rampton today signed into law two bills designed to provide emergency low- cost housing assistance. He inked the bills a day after he did away with the Utah State property tax with a stroke of his pen. (See earlier story p. 21). One housing measure makes a $3 million, one-time appropriation of federal revenue sharing funds for low-income dwellings and the other bill passed by the special session of the Legislature allows cities to dip into their surplus emergency funds to meet housing crises. Representatives of the Utah Housing Coalition, Inc., attended the signing in the governor's office. "This won't go very far," the governor said as he signed the bill. "But it will bridge over a difficult period." Rep, David R. .Nemelka, R- Salt Lake, chief sponsor of the .legislation, said, "We've come a long way in seven months." Steve Holbrook, a spokesman for the coalition, said with, a smile: "Mell you, they aren't giving anything.away up here." The coalition had been campaigning fojt'the measures since the regular.; 1973 legislative session, but' bills appropriating housing funds were killed then. They were revived at the 'special session.
