FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1973 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE? ' [ ' * Final vote Monday No-fault wins House test .' PHOENIX, (AP) - Preliminary ^approval has been given, to a no-fault auto-insur-' ance bill in the Arizona House. After nearly two hours · of floor;, debate yesterday, Rep. Robert Hungerford. R-Scotts- daie;"succeeded\in tacking oa ' nearly- a- 'dozen ! amendments. .But he was stopped short of altering the no-fault principle. I: The" final vote is scheduled "Jlonday. Trie/ bill then would go to the Senate. ' : : Basic benefits of the mea. sure, drafted by a National Conference on Uniform Laws, are payment of all hospital and : rehabilitation expenses . and(up to $200_weekly in lost wages to victims. The benefits would be paid by the victim's insurer, without regard to fault; /with additional coverage at the option of the individual. "Tor this- the motorist would give up ''the/ right to lawsuits flnless ' permanent injuries, such as mutilation, or pai«, . and suffering could- be 'shown to be worth more than $5 ; 000, * The surrender of any part of the right to sue would require yoter approval as a constitutional amendment bill also provides for a mandatory 15 per cent cut in insurance rates before the proposal could become law. , Rep. Richard Burgess, R- Phoenix, floor sponsor, said the benefits 1 could amply cover all but about 1 per cent of all auto accident victims, and the remaining few could seek larger awards in court. Hungerford, with occasional help from Rep. Charles King, R-Tucson, like Hungerford: a lawyer, sought unsuccessfully to remove limits on damage 1 suits. , ' Hungerford did succeed in adding an amendment provid- ing for damage suits against a "grossly, negligent .driver," defined in part as one under the influence of alcohol . The go-ahead came on a 33 : 18 vote with 'most of the minority Democrats joining with Hungerford and King in opposing the bill. Pima, Maricopa appointive judicial system proposed Bread dating bill killed in committee Citizen Pnoenix Bureau : PHOENIX - A bill that would have required the date on which bread is baked, td£be printed on the bread wrapper has been killed by the Senate Agriculture, Commerce and Labor Committee. · '"A bill like this will da nothing but force prices 'upward," said Ed Eisele, president of Holsum Bakeries, Phoenix. , ; Citizen Phoenix Bureau · PHOENIX -- State judges in Pirn a and' Maricopa coun- 'ties would be appointed to their initial term of office under a proposed constitutional amendment that received tentative -approval in the Senate yesterday. Under the bill, which would require voter" approval,. the, governor would select appointees to fill seats on the Supreme Court, the State Appeals Court, and the Superior Courts in the two counties. Superior Court judges in smaller counties would continue as elective offices. At the end of his regular term, the judge would face an election without an opponent. The voters would decide whether to dust him or continue him in office. If removed, the judge's seat would again be filled by the appointive pro.,cess. · / . _ · , .«' , , There, wls stiff -opposition .Democrat Minority Leader Harold Giss, D-Yuma, said it would' fail when, brought up for final vote. Preliminary approval came on a 16-tO;ll vote. "It's the hierarchy of the bar association that wants to control the bench," (iiss de- clared. "Let's not fall info that trap." A similar bill was approved by the Senate ,last year, but failed to clear a House com ; mittee. Sen. Leo Corbet, R-Phoenix, said the measure would provide for a nonpartisan commission to select candidates for appointment by the'governor. The commission would consist of the chief justice of the State Supreme Court, three lawyers to be named by the State Bar of Arizona, and five non-attorneys. · . . ' . Corbet said many of the present judges'were first appointed to the bench, "and 1 the only- way to get a judge out of office is for someone to run against 'him." "This costs between $30,000 and $60,000 for a Supreme Court race," he sai-Jr "Judges have to depend on lawyers for ' campaign contributions under the present system." / Committee holds bill on container refunds PHOENIX (AP) - The House Municipalities Committee has held a measure to require beverage dealers to give refunds for bottles and cans. Jerry Petrie, Phoenix, statewide manager for the Beverage Industry Recycling Program, told the committee the bill would 1 stymie the rec'j£ cling project built here- two years ago. ;-"- ·'· "With this bill we'are" saying to the only. industty\.that'i doing anything about th'e. poli lution problem: 'We are: going' . to clip your wings,' " said Rep.- James B. Ratliff, R^Sun City,; in a motion to hold the bill; The committee approved legislation requiring communities to enact flood-plain- zoning within 180 .days after the effective date of, the legisla- ' tion. : '' If communities fail to coin-: 'spry, the bill provides that they would receive no share of .state sales tax revenue. The ^Natural Resources Committee ? will consider the bill next ^ 3859 E.
