This week the House of Representatives passed House File 700, a bill to substantially lib- eralise our voter registration la>v. Two years ago a law was passed which mandated statewide voter registration. We were told at that time that registration would deter election fraud because it would provide election judges with a list of eligible voters. In our are.i we have not even had an opportunity to see voter registration in actual operation, yet the Democratic majority in the House lias passed a bill which virtually destroys the safeguards of voter registMtion by permitting registration on election day at the polls as well as post card registration. I cannot see why we should require our County Auditors to go through all of the work and expense of registering voters when anyone can vote on election day whcL'iiir they were previously registered or not. I offered an amcndmc'it to completely eliminate registration in order that we could prevent the unnecessary expenditure of the taxpayer's money. My a- mendmcnt was defeated. I voted against I louse File 700 because I believe that it would substantially increase the costs of registering voters, further confuse voter,, and place an unbelievable burden on our County Auditors who have the responsibility of handling the elections in each county of this state. 1 certainly hope that if the Senate passes this bill, Governor Ray will veto it. The House Ways and Means Committee has sent a major income tax bill to the House floor for debate. This Bill would replace Iowa's state income tax law with a law which would result in most taxpayers paying state income tax at a rate which is 20% of their federal taxes. This is a concept which I think is definitely worth careful consideration by the Legislature. 1 am concerned, however, that the Ways and Means Committee bill docs not include investment credit and other tax credits which are a part of the federal tax structure. If tax credits are not included in this new Iowa Income Tax then farmers ;uul businessmen will find that their state income tax will be substantially in excess of 20;'j of their federal tax liability. Because we were not given adequate time to study tlic in- conic tax proposal in committee (we first saw the bill on Friday and it was p,-issed out of committee on the follo-ving Monday) we will have to offer amendments to the bill on the I louse floor. We enjoyed having the Forest City High School senior; at the Capitol this week. Let us know if your class plans to come down to DCS Moines.
