Says No-Strings Relief Would Bankrupt State CHICAGO (AP) - A federal proposal to accept a relief recipient's personal statement of needs without investigation could bankrupt the state, Illinois' auditor said Wednesday. Michael J. Howlett, who was sworn in Monday for his third consecutive term as auditor, said he was hopeful mat tht Nixon administration would grant a postponement of the proposal slated to go into effect July 1. He snid he would ask the Illinois delegation in Washington to work for a two-year delay "This proposal comes at a bad time for the State of 111- 1 inois," Howlett said. "Some' states still have residence requirements . . . but others, including Illinois., are wide open to assaults on their funds because they are. prohibited by. federal court orders from enforcing any residency requirement.". . Howlett said he expects an increase in migration from neighboring states which have lower standards of public assistance. An average family of four in Illinois on public assistance receives $246 a month, Howlett said, while the same family in Missouri would receive $144 and in Indiana the figure would be $150. 90 ANNIVERSARY the fun pku Wo shop...
