Priebe The main bills passed this week were appropriation bills in an attempt to complete the session. We improved the appropriation procedure this year for we did not work on these bills late at night as in previous years. I have always felt it improper to appropriate at 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning as people are not alert at that time. The Social Services Bill, which I handled on the floor, passed. This involved a large amount of money. The Governor recommended $172,478,300 and we in the Committee reduced the Governor's budget by $1, 521, 790 for a final figure of $170, 956, 510. Now I realize when you appropriate 170 million plus dollars and reduce it by one and one half million dollars, it does not seem like a great reduction. However, 1 believe it is a significant amount. We increased the A.D.C. money in this appropriation, but we now have 89,000 recipients as compared to 82,000 recipients last year. In addition, 2. 5 million dollars was left in the A.D.C. fund from last year. When we decided to let this money revert, we in effect reduced the amount which may be spent on A.D.C. by 2.5 million. Several conference committees have met during the last few days of the session, and this year was no different from other years in that respect. A few of the bills discussed were the corporate farm bill, the income tax bill, and the trip ticket bill. Tempers always get shorter as the days get longer. I am greatly relieved when we are through with the ordeal of finalizing bills. We definitely improved IPERS for Iowa public employees. We will fund the increase with state funds the first year. The Des Moines school system had a. separate retirement system and asked the state to fund part of their retirement, but the Senate defeated this. There were several attempts to suspend the rules the last few days of the session, which is very rarely done. Actually, this is an endeavor to embarass one or the other political party. We appropriated almost $70 million dollars to the Department of Transportation just for administration of the Department which consists of 4, 775 employees. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every paper that has carried my newsletter. Many people have commented favorably on these. In a couple of weeks I will submit a complete resume of the session as I feel it is extremely important to keep the people in my area informed of all that is being done. and will spend a few days visiting here.
