*' Taxes And Reapportionment Hot Issues In Kansas Senate And House TOPEKA (AP) - Both houses of the Kansas Legislature staged their first "gloves off" battles of the 1963 session Wednesday. In the Senate, a hot argument developed over property assessments in debate on two bills to authorize increased school tax levies. The bills, one involving Olathe and another affecting Topeka, Lawrence and Kansas City, were approved. Legislative reapportionment and the role of the federal courts and the Constitution sparked the fray in the House. After an hour of debate, the House tentatively approved a resolution calling for submission of an amendment to the federal Constitution. It is designed to restrain the federal government from forcing reapportionment of state legislatures. The Senate row flared when Sen. Paul Wunsch, R-Kingman, speaker pro tern, asked the Olathe bill's sponsor, Sen. Clark Kuppinger, R • Prairie Village, if increased assessments in Johnson County wouldn't end the need for a special levy. Kuppinger disagreed and attacked a recent study of the relation of sale price to assessed value of property in Johnson County. "If property was assessed at a higher percentage of value, we would start losing what industry we have," said Sen. Joseph H. McDowell, D-Kansas City, who amended the second bill to include Topeka and Kansas City along with Lawrence in the authorization for an increased school building levy. Sen. Steadman Ball, R-Atchison, led the opposition. He said the tax ratio comparison was accurate. "If the Senate keeps passing bills like this one it might just as well tear the levy limits off every local government in the state." The bills will come up for passage today. The senate approved for passage a less volatile bill thatt would increase from six to nine months the time a barber student must spend in school. He must also have an eighth grade education. The senate voted down 17-10 a proposed amendment that would have abolished a prohibition against issuing a barber's license to an alien. A bill was introduced in the Senate to allow insurance com- panies to increase loans on property to 'two-thirds of total value. Except for life insurance firms, such loans now are limited to 50 per cent. Other bills introduced in the Senate would: Provide uniform laws for all cities on issuance of no-fund warrants and establishment and financing of city planning commissions. Broaden the area in which local governments can enter into cooperative agreements. Define the authority and administrative duties of the executive secretary to the state board of health. The Senate approved and recommended for passage 47 bills, 42 of which would repeal state enabling laws for cities. The laws were made obsolete by home rule. Members of the Senate Ways and Means Committee criticized the spending of taxpayers' money by state departments for printing of multi-colored stationery and the listing of directors on letterheads. House committees approved two bills but balked at introducing legislation on oil and gas pool unitization, well spacing and integration of leases. "If it is going to get before the Legislature, some individual is going to have to introduce it," said a member of the Oil and Gas Committee. Rep. Ross Doyen, R-Rice, said he may introduce the bill just to get it before the Legislature. "I'm not backing this bill," he said. The Roads and Highways Committee voted to introduce a bill requiring physicians to report visual defects of patients when they exceed certain levels. The deficiencies would be reported to the State Motor Vehicle Department. "At present, a person may hold a driven license and be blind, but a physician can't report it," said a committee member. A bill to authorize transfer of custodial patients from other state hospitals to the State Tuberculosis Sanatorium -. at Norton was approved by the House Public Welfare Committee. Four buildings are unoccupied at the institution. They would be used for patients who are in need of custodial care and who are incapable of training or education.
