A general levy in addition lo the present sources of highway revenue, Laney said, would be necessary if the department Ls lo have the $.000,8000 In additional funds requested in its budget.

I the wreck the fees should be equalized so that I wheel, laj-ge trcuks who woliid pay their ) share of highway costs. I "The highway system contributes ' greatly to the general economy of Ihe. state." Laney declared, "and > that would seem to justify the use ' it other money in supporting it." j Laney pointed out that the present road crisis was caused by lack of maintenance money in (lie past, creating a \vorn out condition even on concrete highways. j "The reconstruction of much of our concrete is right in front of us," the governor said. "We may be_,ab!e to patch it.up. but some of the worst sections should be rebuilt before an enormous expenditure Is necessary for total reconstruction." Other factors In the problem are the demand to black-top 5.000 miles of gravel road; the need to rebuild S30.OfiO.000 north of bridges; and the inflated construction costs which are 2 1-2 times higher than they were in 19-10. The governor is opposed to any kind of bond issue and hopes the people will not be stampeded iiuo one. The present debt ol $ll,coo.- 000 a year in principal and interest makes a large bond issue impractical at this time. Lancv declared. Instead, he 'believes It wiser to impose some plan of raising 7 1-2 to lo million dollars in additional levenues each year. year's Imprisonment and $200 fine for each of Ihe three counts. •Matthews was charged following the deaths of three youths in r» collision with his car Insl December.
