Subsequently, she said, subdivides built a curved street rather than Jewell Ave. She said something fewer than SO homes are involved. The other bill changes about 150 persons in the south part of Greeley from the district represented by Kep. Virginia Sears, R-Greeley, to the district of Rep. Carl Showaller, R-Gree : tey. Showalter said the change was made at the suggestion of county officials to eliminate a / tiny precinct: " ; Final legislative passage came when the Senate approved the measures on final reading. They passed the House previously. The bills now go to Gov. John Mark Hogan praises if'' L* f / 3(JflSflfflG LOW DENVER (AP) -The Democratic nominee for governor of Colorado in 1970,'Mark A. Hogan, lauded Colorado's new "Sunshine Law" Wednesday night. , Hogan said it is so successful "the Republican-controlled legislature already has called it a can of worms and put in a bill to repeal it." Hogan added: "That kind of arrogance and contempt for the public" proves the need for. the law better than words. The Coloradan expressed the views in a speech prepared for a seminar at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, at Harvard University. Copies of his remarks were made public by Democratic officials in Denver. Hogan, considered a potential Democratic candidate for governor again next year, expressed his views on the Sunshine Act to illustrate a declaration that citizens can make their voices heard in govern- ters last November after it was put on the ballot by petitions sponsored by Colorado Project Common Cause. It requires disclosures of sources of income of elected officials, reporting of lobbyist pay and spending and orders open meetings of state agencies. "In Colorado our citizens made Common Cause work on a state and local level," Hngan said, "and other student and citizen groups are forming or have already formed and won some victories." He said it costs at least $20,000 yearly to finance a full time lobbyist at the Colorado Legislature or to appear before state boards and commissions and the average citizen can't hope to match paid experts. Hogan asserted 3 per cent of the people pay for campaigns for people who are supposed to represent 100 per cent of the people. The Coloradan said the only real answer to the high cost of 50th Ave. 20th St. Highland Nurseries,^ JACOBSEN LAWN AND GARDEN EQUIPMENT WE TAKE TRADE-INS Love for signature. He already has signed a bill shifting about 60 persons in Larimer County from the senatorial district of Sen. Fred Anderson, R-Loveland lo that of Sen. Hank Brown, R-Greeley. Among other bills given final Senate approval Wednesday was one by Sen. Kenneth Kinnie, R-Julesbiirg, requiring Col- oradans to list the name of their public school district on state income tax -returns. It went to the House. Kinnie is' seeking to use the information in a new bill for slate aid lo schools. Another bill given final Senate approval was one allowing organizations to conduct up to 105 bingo games or raffles yearly, instead of 96, and to deduct up to 25 per cent of receipts for expenses including repair of buildings in which the games are held. in heroin raid GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Four persons were arrested in rural Garfield County Wednesday in a heroin raid, Dist. Ally. Frank Tucker said. Undercover officers paid $40,000 for about one pound of heroin, Tucker said. The drug was allegedly worth about $200,000 in street value. Tucker said the four suspects, who were not identified, were taken to the Denver County Jail where they would undergo heroin withdrawal treatment. The four were arrested For investigation of conspiracy and possession of heroin. The raid was conducted as a joint operation by the Glenwood Springs police, Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Garfield County sheriff's office. Colorado receives $5.23 million in federal revenue sharing funds Ky GORDON G. GAUSS AssociatedPress Writer DENVER (AP)--Colorado has received $5,231,978 federal revenue sharing money for the first quarter of 1973, State Treasurer Palmer Burch announced Wednesday. The check, he said, was received Monday. The money has been invested in short term securities, Burch reported, pending completion of a plan under which it will be made available to banks in the state. Placing the money 1 with banks, Burch said, is done through certificates of deposit which bear interest. He said the certificates covering money will be for 270 days which will make the funds available for actual spending next January. The procedure is the same one used by the treasurer in handling federal revenue sharing funds totaling $17.7 million received in December and January covering last year. Burch noted that the first quarter payment for 1973 is approximately $700,000 above the receipts expected on the basis of the 1972 payments. The money is kept in a special revenue sharing trust account and is not included in the state's fund balance, the treasurer said. He said the federal General Accounting Office is currently reviewing the activities of the various states in the handling of the revenue sharing funds and that an official has been in Colorado checking on the meth- ods used. The accounting office, Burch said, is preparing a report to Congress on the actual use being made of the money or planned for it by states and local agencies.
