The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page 12 Council approves aide for House speaker pro tern TOPEKA (AP) - The Legislative Coordinating Council Friday approved the hiring of an aide for House Speaker Pro Tern David Heinemann, R-Garden City, at a salary of $1,500 a month during the 90-day legislative session. The assistant will work on a full- time basis during the session, but it has not been decided if she'll stay on during the summer. The committee also approved a change in interstate long-distance telephone lines in about 10 Statehouse offices, including those in offices of House and Senate leadership. In addition, the committee appointed state Sen. Joseph Harder, R- Moundridge, as chairman of the joint Legislative Educational Planning Committee. Harder last session was vice chairman of the educational committee, which overlooks long-range educational planning. The seven-member coordinating council, made up of House and Sen- ate leaders, handles administrative details for the Legislature. Heinemann said he needed an aide because of his membership on the Ways and Means Committee and the Energy and Natural Resources Committee gave him a heavy workload. In the past, speakers pro tern have not always had an aide. Aides say Hayden crossed Carlin on agriculture plan TOPEKA (AP) — Gov. John Carlin was described Friday as fuming over House Speaker Mike Hayden's recent discouraging remarks regarding the governor's proposal to reorganize the state Department of Agriculture. Aides associated with Republican legislative leadership and the governor say Hayden double-crossed Carlin by speaking out against the idea. They say Hayden, R-Atwood and a candidate for the GOP nomination for governor, has broken a pledge he made to Carlin to support the reorganization plan. And the governor is said to quite angry at the development. "It's true, the governor discussed his proposal with us all summer and made his plans known and we never did tell him to stop," Sue Peterson, spokeswoman for Hayden said Friday. "But all along, Mike said he would not go out and knock heads to get votes. He said he didn't know how House members would react. "We took a little poll and found there's not a lot of Republicans interested in changing it. I don't know if Mike personally supports it or not." However, the insiders say the alleged betrayal is more clear-cut. The sources confirmed that both Hayden and Senate President Robert V. Talkington, R-Iola, agreed to work with Carlin to push the executive order through the Legislature. H&R Block Found David Orozco $625 Couldn't have done it without you/" Bennett awaits postcard results TOPEKA (AP) — Former Gov. Robert F. Bennett said Friday he is awaiting the return of more postcards in an informal poll, the results of which may be the major factor in whether he decides to run for governor. His decision on whether to seek the Republican nomination "depends on what the cards say," Bennett said in a telephone interview from his Overland Park law office. Bennett announced in December he was considering running for governor onct; more — after Attorney General Robert T. Stephan abandoned his quest for the nomination in the wake of adverse publicity over a sexual harrassment lawsuit. Bennett, who served as governor in 1975-79, mailed out some 5,000 letters to Republicans statewide, enclosing a postcard on which people could indicate whether they thought he should run for governor this year. Mailing of the cards was delayed, and their return has been sporadic, Bennett said. However, he said he believes the number returned now exceeds 1,000, and that more continue to come in. About 100 arrived in Friday's mail, he said. "I have no time frame for making a decision," Bennett said. "When they slacken off to a trickle, we'll take a tally. I assume that they will stop trickling long before the end of the month." Bennett said the response to his poll has ranged from those who didn't take it seriously and tossed the postcards away to those who have expressed extensive opinion. Carlin's tax proposal gets boost TOPEKA (AP) — Gov. John Carlin's proposal to increase the state sales tax from three percent to four percent is • guaranteed to be more successful than a similar attempt he made last year, thanks to Rep. Ed Rolfs, R-Junction City. Rolfs, chairman of the House Assessment and Taxation Committee, said Friday he will to ask his committee to introduce the sales tax proposal on Tuesday, just prior to the Democratic governor's annual State of the State address to the Legislature. Rolfs has scheduled committee hearings and action on the bill for Wednesday, the third day of the session. It's estimated the increase would mean about $190 million for the state's general fund. r ® INTRODUCES THE 2.DAY MOVIE RENTAL WINTER SPECIAL!
