PAGE EIGHT BLYTIIISVILLE (AUK.)' COU1UEII NEWS FRIDAY, WAY 9, 1?47 Court Test Looms On Laney Vetoes Belated Action by Governor Slated to Get Judge's Attention LITTLE ROCK, Mny 8. (UP) — Validity of Gov. Ben Lnncy's veto of two bills passed by (lie recent legislature was apparently headed lot a tot in Arkansus' courts today. -The two measures—the so-cnlled Reed liquor bill and (lie Carpenter Independence County salary-act— were vetoed 'by the governor nfier the ESth General Assembly adjo-jrn- e^. Proponents of the two measures insist thai the governor acted too iate nnct that the bills nclunlly IK- came law. The Reed bill would remove much of the discretionary poutr now In tbc hands of the revenue commissioner concerning the issui::t; or revoking of wholesale liquov Hccr.fccs. The county salary act would rcprml the initiated salary act in effect in Independence County ana set county salaries up on a fee b:i:,it The court test—tlneidenctl by R*p. Guy Reed of Millc.- County on the liquor bill—apparently will conic oil the salary act, fallowing the announcement that Independence County Judge Forrest Jof- f«ry has found himself unalk to draw his salary. . County Treasurer Norman Gray, a, lending sponsor of the "Cnri>o:uir Salary Act." refused yesteidny to transfer $200 from the county raSary fund to pay Judge JeMery's fni'iry act. Gray asserted that tho "Carpenter. Act" is now in cifecc and that the county is operating imcler t£e fee system, without.a t.i.lary {urid. ' Gray said lie is basing his ac(!cn on_ a ruling by Attorney General Quy E. Williams in which Williams said that the governor's viilo of the t^il came too late and that the :ic'. now is law. -Judge Jetlery contends that the Initiated county salary law rcnninr, in effect until the Supreme Cmirt rites on the validity of the repealing bill. ; A court decision on the; salary art would probably be interprtted to apply to the liquor bill no both wcic vetoed under identical circumstances.
