P«cj« A-2-INDEPENDENT LM* t«x. H*n. Axil ' ··* r-L.A.C. SAYS:Partisan Yes Also a Principle PKOPLK IN THE NK1,'S 2 Little Sisters Die of Suffocation in Fire Started by Their Mother State bond issues totaling $970 million will be on the June 5 ballot. This was decided by the state legislature Wednesday night. It was a partisan victory for the Republican members. Hut it was also based nn uti important principle. # · * * Gnv. Drown had insisted that the bond issues be divided, with part on the June ballot and part on the November ballot. It takes a two-thirds vote to place the bond issues on the ballot. All the 44 Democrats in the Assembly voted for the splitting of the bond issues. But they needed 10 of the 34 Republican votes to have the two-thirds majority. The Republicans refused to budge on the principle that all the issues should be nn the same ballot. They preferred the November ballot because a larger turnout of voters would be assured in the final state election. When it appeared there was a deadlock the Republican assemblyman from Redwood City offered the compromise providing for all issues to'go on the .lime ballot. It was passed by 7.'l to 1 in the Assembly nnd .'18 to (I in the Senate. The governor has indicated lie would sijjn Hie bill--so the controversial issue is .settled. * * * Opposition to placing the bond issues before the voters was never the issue. It was the idea of splitting them to make them more palatable that was opposed. Political expediency that would split the issues so voters might not realize the total was almost a billion dollars was inexcusable. This was defeated on a partisan vote, lint in this case the Republicans had nn issue with a principle with which most of the people will ugiec 1 . It was an example of what a strong minority party organization can accomplish in the legislature. When used for constructive purposes--it is a safeguard to all the people. In this case the Republicans were in the minority--but some of their votes were needed. It was a test of strength and of a willingness to take a stand that might be an unpopular position :um»ig some of their constituents. £ £ * llrown insisted that $200 million of school bonds and S273 million of state college and other construction works be placed on the June ballot. Hut he wanted to hold off some $500 million of other bonds for the later election. The opposition case was based on the principle that the voters bad the right to have the whole package presented at one election. 'Ibis could have a good effect in that it should Insure a much larger turnout of voters for the June primary election. The bond issues can be much better debated in the primaiy than they could in the November election when the final vote for governor and other elected offices will be bitterly contested. It might be even better if bond issues were on .separate elections free of any partisan issues. Hut. at least, this .settlement docs away with the effort to vote on them on a piecemeal basis.--I.A.C.
