I had hoped this year would be different, but it wasn't. Naturally I was disappointed in the night sessions. We passed the Senate version of the tax bill which changes some of the rates, especially in the lower income brackets and also in the upper brackets. Most Democrats supported this version; most Republicans opposed it. Actually this version is very similar to the version the Governor proposed. However, it had bipartisan support. I will be more than happy to explain the difference in the House version, the Senate version, and the Governor's version. When we deduct the Iowa income tax from the Federal, most people will be surprised at the small amount of change. One thing the House version offered was a simple post card return. However, I felt this version was too progressive in some of the brackets. Otherwise I could have supported it. The so-called "Capitals Bill" is another tough bill. I am happy we took up most of the appropriation bills in the day sessions rather than at night as in other years. We passed the Corporate Farm Bill which is pretty much a reporting bill. We improved IPERS, which is the first time real progress has been made in this area since I have been in the Legislature. The malpractice insurance bill was a necessary one. The motorcycle helmet bill was a bill the Federal government mandated we pass. The packer bonding bill will help some but it certainly is not the complete answer. The railroad branch line improvement bill is definitely of some help. The county-city assistance fund is a good bill which aids counties and cities with financing. One of the bills which many people in my area opposed was the three factor formula which never did come up for debate. Abo, the studded snow tire bill and the bill to sell wine in grocery store.-, were not debated. As I stated last week, 1 \\ill prepare a resume of the bills in the near future. The local newspapers do a real service to me and th^ re ail ere in carrying these newsletters. Again, a big thanks to these people. Branstad Reports I to tfte Eighth District Terry E. Branstad, Rep. AAAAAAA.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAJ After a marathon session that lasted for more than 24 hours straight, the Iowa House of Representatives finally adjourned for this year at about 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 20. The Senate adjourned several hours later on Friday afternoon. Both the House and the Senate broke their previous records for the longest consecutive hours in session. House rules forbid working past 10; 00 p. m. any evening, but the Democrat leadership hail the votes to suspend the rules and keep us in session all night. I have always objected to these long hours as everyone Ls so tired anil it is difficult '.o give important legislation the serious consideration that it needs under these circumstances. The last week of the session saw the passage of several important bills which hail been tied up in conference committees. THE TITONKA TOPIC July 3, 1975 — Page 3 — The income tax bill, which had been the source of a" major dispute between House and Senate Democrats and had caused the session to be extended for several weeks beyond the originally planned adjournment date, was finally approved aftar the House members caved in and accepted the Senate bill without any changes. The corporate farm bill was approved after the conference committee agreed on a bill which requires corporations involved in agriculture to report on their farm holdings and prohibits packing companies and food processors from owning cattle feeding operations. I supported this bill which was far better than either the original House or Senate versions. Also passed in the last week was a bill to impose a surtax on Iowa Employers in 1976. Tliis tax increase will hit every employer in Iowa regardless of what his rating is and whether or not lie has laid off anyone in recent years. I think it was wrong to increase unemployment benefits and place additional burdens on Iowa businesses during a time when the economy has already made it difficult to make a profit. 1 was disappointed that we wore not able to get any action on bills to prevent gigantic property tax increases which are imminent because of dramatic increases in property valuations. We made several attempts to hold increases down to six percent or less and to change the capitalization rate on farm real estate, but all our efforts proved to no avail as amendment after amendment was ruled out of order or voted down. I really think that more people are concerned about the inequities in the property tax than in the Iowa Income Tax.
