"A-M-- INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) ··"· ·"*· ""'·· *«*·· F «» Cullen Urges Tax Rebate for Condominium Dwellers From Our State Bureau S A C R A M E N T O -Own-your-own apartment and condominium dwellers, who face exclusion from the $70 property-tax rebate authorized by the passage of Proposition 1A last November, have found some support in the Legislature. Assemblyman Mike Cullen, D-Long Beach, Tuesday declared that Los Angeles County Assessor Philip E. Watson "has a moral obligation to give individual tax bills to owners of own-your-own apartments," and cited two state Supreme Court decisions which say it is "certainly the better practice" to assess each individual owner in situations of co-tenancy. The language of Proposition 1-A apparently gives the assessor a choice of assessing each owner separately or simply assess- Legislature o Moves on $7 Welfare Hike SACRAMENTO (DPI) -Legislation giving elderly welfare recipients a $7 a month increase advanced in the legislature Tuesday over opposition of Social Welfare Director John C. Montgomery. The meSsure by Assemblyman John Burton, D- San Francisco, received approval of the Assembly Health and Welfare Committee on a split voice vote and moved to the Ways and Means Committee. The measure was similar to one vetoed last year by acting Gov. Hugh M. Bums, president pro tern of the Senate. Montgomery o p p o s e d the measure chiefly because other welfare categories such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) were more entitled to a grant increase than persons receiving Old Age Security Aid (OAS). "I'm suggesting that the initial need from a priority standpoint would be for the AFDC program," Montgomery told the committee under questioning. He stressed, however, he was not. urging an increase in the AFDC program. "In AFDC there is significant need," Montgomery said. "The facts do not show that in OAS." "The facts do indicate in the OAS program that California is adequately meeting the minimum standard of living for that program, he said. He said by increasing the payment by $7 it would cost slightly more than $16 million in state, federal and local welfare funds during the remainder of the current fiscal year. He estimated it would cost $27 million next year. Budget Analysis Ready by March 1 SACRAMENTO HP) -The lengthy analysis of Gov. Ronald Reagan's S6.23 billion budget should be in the hands of legislators shortly after March 1 -- with a new short summary critique of major expenditures, revenue and budget assumptions. Legislative Analyst A. Alan Post, the legislature's top fiscal expert, said Tuesday his department's analysis of the budget is being printed and should be finished "shortly after the first of the month." Don't Show Them SACRAMENTO (UPI) -The Assembly Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee Tuesday killed legislation to require candidates to show campaign literature to their opponents in advance. ing the corporation of owners collectively. The corporation comprised of individual owners of homes in Leisure World would be eligible for a single $70 rebate, according to this latter assessment practice, but the individual owners would not be. The problem has also resulted in a bill, introduced by Assemblyman Robert H. Burke, R-Huntington Beach, which would spell out the eligibility of own-your-own apartment or condominium dwellers to receive the rebate. Sen. George Deukmejian, R-Long Beach, said he had received a number of letters from constituents complaining about being deprived of the rebate, and said he was seeking legal opinions on the subject and was also discussing it with appropriate state and local officials. "It is my f e e 1 i n g," Deukmejian said, that "so long as as person owns and lives in his residence, be it a home, a condominium unit, or an own- your-own apartment, and so long as that person is directly responsible for the property taxes on that residence, he should be eligible for the property-tax relief granted through Proposition 1-A."
