Kossuth Legislators Differ On School-Bus-For-AII Bill Tiwtdoy, March 21, 196? Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines-11 The controversial school bus bill, a measure passed by the State Senate recently, 35 to 26, which would allow public school buses to also carry parochial school pupils, will not receive the support of State Representative Karl E. Kiilsholm of Kossuth county. In a letter released Saturday to various news media, Kiilsholm outlined his reasoning. He said in a letter to the Upper Des Moines that he had received much communication on the issue. WHAT THE BILL PROVIDES: As passed by the State Senate, with a "Yes" vote from State Senator Don Murray of Bancroft who represents Kossuth and Humboldt counties, the measure states (1) private school pupils could be picked up along established school bus routes; (2) .a student could get off the bus on the route nearest to the parochial or private school that he/ she attends; (3) buses could not cross school district lines to pick up private school pupils. KHLSHOLM'S VIEWS: State Representative Kiilsholm had these comments, after a specific statement that he does not believe the use of tax money to transport students to private schools would be wise. (1) Every parent has the right to send pupils to school of their choice, but other taxpayers should not be required to help pay for private school transportation; (2) parents who send their children to private schools are not "double taxed", in view of the fact that nobody is forced to send them to a private school; (3) tax support for private schools would bring an element of state control to private schools. He elaborated to some extent on each of these three major points, and said he himself at- tended a private school for one year in Europe. In an addenda to his formal statement, Kiilsholm added that "please understand that sometime in the future there may be a bill whereby buses would be on a contractual basis and completely separated from the schools. There is a possibility that a bill of this kind could be implemented." Editor's Note - A bill of this kind was presented to the legislature and defeated in the Senate. - o- BOOK LEGISLATORS FOR VOTER APPEARANCE The League of Women Voters has announced that both Senator Murray and Representative Kiilsholm will appear Tuesday, March 21, at a meeting at 8 p. m. at the Kossuth county court house.
