KU Prof Is State's First Post Auditor TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Legislative Post Audit Committee hired today W. Keith Weltmer, a University of Kansas professor of business administration and lecturer in law, as the state's first post auditor. Weltmer, 58, a brigadier general in the Kansas National Guard, fills a new post created by the 1971 legislature to serve as the legislature's watchdog over how money it appropriates is spent. Weltmer's appointment to a four-year term at an annual salary of $25,450 is effective Oct. 15, although he will finish out his teaching duties at KU this semester and serve the state on a part-time basis until early December when the fall quarter of school ends. Rep. Clyde Hill, R-Yates Center, chairman of the Legislative Post Audit Committee, said he first approached Weltmer about taking the job last July, and expressed pleasure that Ha had persuaded the KU professor to accept. "I'm very pleased that we could get a person of Keith's capacity, background, experience and all the rest of the qualifications he brings with him," Hill said at a hastily-arranged news conference shortly after the committee hired Wei tmer. Hill said the committee Seek Special Committee Plan No Tax Lid Recommendation TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Joint Assessment and Taxation Committee of the Kansas Legislature will make no recommen dation to the 1972 session of what should be done about the property tax lid law of 1970, State Sen. Frank Hodge, R-Hutchinson, said Monday. Frank Hodge "It is completely dead as far as this committee is concerned," said Hodge, chairman of the joint committee, after a day-long session here Monday to discuss a variety of matters facing the '72 session. The committee voted unanimously to recommend to the 1972 Legislature that a special interim committee be appointed to study between the '72 and 73 sessions the entire matter of tax limits, levy limits and budget limitation. This, in ef- How can such a big Kink fit into such a •compact— building? It's not the size of toe building that's Important. It's the size of the services. COMPi •BANKj NORTH GATE NATIONAL BANK 601 East 30th feet, will delay consideration of extension of the tax lid law until the '73 session, if the '72 legislature goes along with the interim study for next year. Urges Extension Gov. Robert Docking has been urging in recent speeches that the Legislature consider in the session opening in January extension of the property tax lid law, which is scheduled to expire at the end of 1972. Feeling among a majority of legislators appears to be, however, that since 1973 budgets of local units of government must be prepared next August well before the tax lid law expires, that the Legislature can delay considering extending it until the '73 session — after all members of the legislature stand for re-election. Docking has criticized this position as representing procrastination on the part of the Legislature. Rep. Shelby Smith, R-Wichita, chairman of the House Assessment and Taxation Committee, has taken the stand that he will oppose consideration of the tax lid law next session. He accused Docking Monday of giving the public the wrong im pression that the tax lid law is about to expire and that property taxes will jump dramati cally next year if it isn't extended by the '72 Legislature "If the public starts finding out that it's not expiring, and they find out that they're being deceived, then I think they (the governor and other tax lid advocates) might start pulling in their horns on it," Smith said. "If the public starts understanding what's right, they may have to change their tune." Hodge said the vote to recommend a study committee for the next interim is "as far as this committee will go; there's no reason for me to bring it up." screened about 18 candidates for the post, and interviewed about a dozen of them before settling on Weltmer. Weltmer, assistant chief of staff for operations -and training for the Kansas National Guard, said he is "very pleased to accept it, simply because I think it's an opportunity to do a lot of good for the state of Kansas." The new post auditor described the state's auditing system as "very, very bad, really," adding: "They just haven't had enough manpower to go out and perform find out just where the money is being spent. "But the only concern I have now is to find out what has been going on in the state auditor's shop. I'll probably spend the next 60 days just seeing what's been going on there."
