Q & A System suffering Continued from page A6 Q: Do you think the state would be more interested in changing the system if it had to pay more of a share? Mattson: "Yeah, that's one piece of it .... but right now, the state probably doesn't have any more money to put in neither does the county and so no one has really set down for a long time and really taken a total look at the system instead of just a little tinkering. If I were the county or the state, and somebody said 'Let's do this changing,' I'd say, 'Well, show me (what it would cost) ... that what I'm hoping could come out of that state task force."

The bottom line is, if ; a private provider were running those ; two institutions, the state would not allow those costs to rise, rise, rise they would cap those rates." Mattson: "Iowa's not necessarily pioneering, there's other state ahead of us ... The ironic thing is, probably back in the mid-'60s to early '70s, .
