(API New rules designed to avoid the customary logjam in the windup of legislative session have been adopted by the Illinois Senate. Senate Republican leader W. Russell Arlington said the changes could result in ending the regular six-month. 1 , session prior to June 30 for the first time since 1953. One of the major revisions sets June 21 as the deadline for the Senate to pass House bills. Othei' deadlines fixed by the Senate rules include: April 11, last day to introduce bills with the main exception of revenue and appropriations measures. April 26, final day for stand- -o- -o- -o- ing committees to report bills to the floor. May 17, final day for passage of Senate bills in the Seante. June 14, final day for Senate committee to report House bills. The House has not yet acted on proposed rules for similar cutoff dates governing its actions. Another Senate rule provides that in sessions during even- numbered years, only revenue and appropriations bills are to be considered. The rules committee however, could make exceptions for emergency legislation. Annual sessions will be required under Gov. Richard Ogilvie's plan to present a yearly state budget. Propose State Aid To Police SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Legislation to expand slate financial aid to local law enforcement agencies and set standards for police training was filed today by Senate Republican Leader W. Russell Arlington. The program would broaden powers of the existing Illinois Police Training Boai'd to administer direct financial grants to police departments. The board also would be r_;iv- en responsibility to set minimum standards for recruitment; and training of police officers., Federal funds for such programs are available through the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administra- lion of Justice. Ai'i'inglon said Gov! Richard B. Ogilvie supports the legislation in principle. "I would hope," 'Arlington told a news conference, "that in the future new recruits would be required to have a h i gh school education and those in supervisory capacities a college degree." • He said persons with sociology and psychology degrees as well as young attorneys should be encouraged to enter law enforcement.
