'Sunshine' calls keep office busy BOISE ( U P l l - Idaho Secretary of Slate Pole Ccnarrusa r.nd his staff have found thai "Sunshine" is synonymous wilh reams of files, a deluge of telephone calls and visitors, legal questions and an overworked office. "The main problems have been wilh interpreting the law," Cenarmsa said. The attorney general's office has helped in that area "We have been flooded wilh callsand visitations from people who are nol sure if Uiey have lo register as lobbyists or not." he said. So far, lhe exlra work brought on by the administration of the lobbyist portion of lhe Sunshine Law has kept Cenarrusa's staff from working on Ihe campaign funding swlion of the same law. Administering the Sunshine l,aw "has come to the forefront of activities In this office," said Deputy Secretary of State Ben V^ursa. Krivir of OnaiTH«a's sfaff are involved in administering lhe law with (he secretarial staff helping tokeep the files, register the 'lobbyists and perform clerical work. While the staff is straining lo lake care of Ihe extra work, they arc scratching their heads over lhc "gray area" of who must register as a lobbyist. Conarrusa said the gray area is part of the clarification that he still needs from the attorney general. Cenarrusa anticipated (here would be 50 persons registered as lobbyists for the Idaho Legislature. So far. (here have been 300 regislrations--many from individuals who are not sure if they are included in the law bu( would rather register than lake a chance. Asked why lhe participants in the "Happiness is Womanhood Day" demonstration at Ihe legislature were not required to regislcr, Cenarrusa and Ysur- sa said the women were acting as individuals. Ysursa said the women, who gave Inaves of bread lo lawmakers and asked Ihcm lo rescind Idaho ratification lo Ihe Equal Rights Amendment, were lobbying because they were trying to gel the legislators to take a particular action. But the women were nol get- lin,« wild to do so. Valley weather IHIISE -. The high pressure over Idaho Thursday is sliding eastward in the wake of a Pacific frontal system off the Washington-Oregon coast. Cloudiness ahead of the front is streaming over the Gem Stale today as this frontal system moves further eastward The system should continue lo increase cloudiness over Idaho tonight and bring a chance of snow to Soullwcslern Idaho late tonight. A chance of snow or snow showers will remain for Southwest Idaho Saturday. Other parts of the slate will also have a chance of snow Saturday. During the night, light snow showers were fell over the southeastern sections of Ihe slate. Those wore, caused by a weak upper-level disturbance feeding moisture and unstable air up from Nevada and Ulah. By mid-morning this disturbance was confined to the very southeast corner of the stale. For (he rest of Idaho, nighttime skies were clear lo partly cloudy. Under ;i cold air mass, overnight lows again dropped to Mow normal. Some minimums recorded were 18 at Boise and I.ewislon, zero at Pocatcllo and 7 below at Idaho Kails. Stanley recorded 35 below zero for the lowest in the state.

Attorney general rules: Taxing units must otter pro- con ot bond issues Obituaries BOISE I UPI ) - Taxing units may use public funds lo ad- valise a bond eleclion but must give both pro and con arguments on (he issue, Idaho's attorney general said Thursday. Wayne Kidwell issued the opinion in response to a request from Hep, Edward W. Rice, R- Boise, who asked about the pro- pricly of promotional adverlis- ing expenses in the recent Ada County Auditorium District nonrt election. Kidwell saida laxing unit may use public funds to advertise a bone! election provided the funds used shall equally present Ihe positive and negative positions of lhe question or issue lo be voted on, "Funds cannot be used slriclly for promotional advertising unless legislation specifically grants this authority to the laxing unit involved in the bond election," lie said. The analysis wrillen for Kidwell by assistant atlorney general Ursula Gjording said each laxing unil is given Ihe power and authority in its organizational statutes lo spend public monies. Expenditures made in compliance wilh the statutory powers fall into (he category of expenditures for a "public purpose." House taxwriters block 1 2% tax rebate proposal BOISE ( U P l l - House tax- wrilers on an 8-8 tie vote blocked introduction today of a bill lo give Idahoans a 12 per eenl rebate on their 197-1 slate income laxcs. Demorrals lined up solidly against lhe bill, saying the surplus monies should be used lo build roads and buildings and not for lax relief. Rep. Wayne Tibbitts, li-Urenzo, also voted against the measure. Minutes earlier, however, the committee on a 9-7 parly-line vote agreed to introduce a bill lo increase lhc grocery credil on income taxes lo $20 from $15 for 1974. The permanent grocery credit on income taxes is $10 per person. The 197-1 session of Ihe l e g i s l a t u r e i n c r e a s e d that amount to $15 for just one monies.

The Kcv. James M a r t i n , of funds urged BOISE ( U P l l - The executive secretary of the Associated General Contractors urged the legislature Thursday lo use general fund surplus money for the construction of highways and public buildings. John P. Molilor, Boise, said, "What Ihe people of our state need now are jobs, nol handouts. People need and want gainful employment--employment in a job that produces something meaningful and necessary. "No one enjoys receiving hand-outs or being on welfare or on unemployment benefits, Ihey want work," he said. He said his recommendation jobs may be considered self- serving because Molitor represents the interest of the contractors. "Not so," he said. "It is (rue (hat this would provide a market for construction firms without which, many of these firms would be forced out of business. "But stalislics prove thai no industry provides more jobs more quickly than construction '.'.DCS." He urged the legislature lo use a substantial portion of the surplus for highways and state buildings and Ihe balance for i.x relief, sales tax taxes generated the surplus. He said the public was overcharged for necessary slate services and should gel lhe money back. Hep. W. Israll Merrill, U- Bliickfool, said Ihe com,millec was merely "fooling" Ihe public. He said Ihe few dollars being returned will nol mean much to the average working man. Rep. Russ Weslerberg, I)-Soda Springs, said lhe average citizen would rather have a decent road on which lo drive or see new buildings ereclcd on college campuses than get hack 55 or $10.

Rep. Russ Wcstcrbcrg, D- Soda Springs raised the question al the meeting of the Transportation and Defense Committee Thursday in Ihe House during discussion of proposed license and license plate fee increases. When told they were for continuing programs and therefore probably should not be funded from surplus money. Westerberg said he understood Ihe need. Bui he questioned whelher lhc taxpayers in Idaho understand what is happening. "We've got $22 million of your money we don't need," he said. "Yet we have lo raise license fees, license plate fees and everything along the line. "Somewhere we ought to say 'no' lo increases," Weslerberg said. Permanent fax relief urged BOISE ( U P l l - A private lax expert urged lhc legislature today to provide tax relief on a permanent ralncr lhan just a temporary basi.-i. In a legislative bulletin (o members, executive manager Max Yost of the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho recalled lhe previous temporary lax relief measures enacted by the legislature and said some should be made permanent rive their authority from (he Department of Law Enforcement. They would have Ihe power lo make inspections and enforce lhe law. A.\V. Willis of Ihe Legislative Counsel staff said the bill has been eight years in Hie making and is compromise legislation from proposed by the Humane Society 1 . Committee Chairman Edith Miller Klein, R-Boise, said the tiill wasn't lhc lolal answer, but would help the Humane Society a little. Sen. J. Wilson Sleen. R-Olenns Ferry, one of three committee members against the measure, said he was afraid humane officers will misinlcrprel actions when handling or training animals. Among other things, the bill would prohibit coloring-of baby chickens, abandoning pets, selling a sick animal. Society. "If persons are interested in finding out or asking questions about (hese areas Ihey should be al lhc hearing when it starts," snid Craven. "We arc going In consider these items first." Another item that the com missioners must look into is the county's dedicated snowmobile fund. Over the years it' h?s accumulated $5.000 as a rosult of snowmobile licenses purchased in Canyon Counly and (he commissioners must decide what lo do with it. According lo stale law, the funds can only he used in snowmobile-related areas but the counly has no real snowmobile recreation area. Thus they have nowhere lo use Ihe money in (he county.
