(&>— The Arkansas Education Association was criticized In a talk here yesterday by Sam Hays, execu'.ive director of the Arkansas Public Expenditure Council. He told Ihe Rolary Club that Ihe real purpose of Act 150 enacted at the recent legislative session "was to increa.w school millage rates, although federal and state aid will reach new highs this year." The purpose of Ihe law was to redefine levenues of school districts. Hays contended thai the act permits a school district to borrow 40 per cent of its 1950-51 revenues In the school year of 1*49-50. "By setting up its school budget on the basis of anticipated local revenues from one entire year's property tax collections plus 40 per cent of the 1950 tax collections," he said, "school districts will be presenting an Inflated school budget to the voters In September, 194»." He suggested that voters reject millage rate increases at the fall elections "because districts will permit use of 10 per cent of local tax collections not dedicated to debt service. "When these districts befin spending their' funds before they are actually collected, there will be no oilier alternative. Then the taxpayers will be again black-Jacked into tile position of increasing lax rates to save the faces of their school districts. "It's Just a case of heads the education forces win and tails the taxpayers lose."
