For tho time being, o.t least, It overshadowed air other.major Issues, such as unemployment relief, crime problems, water development, liquor regulation, abolition of capital punishment, and Governor Rolph's $232,000,000 budget. Today's session was ,to bo the usual formality of electing officers of Senate and Assembly who have previously been agreed upon In caucus. Assemblyman Walter J,. Little of Santa Monica was assured of election as speaker of the Assembly, and Senator Arthur H. Breed of Oakland appeared to bo the choice as president pro tern of the Senate/ Rolph Message Tuesday Tomorrow, however, Governor James Rolph, Jr., : is ' expected .to lay tho state's financial difficulties "In the laps of the'lawmakers, with a definite pro- gra'nH' designed, to effect a remedy. Brleflyj the state's, financial .predicament Is this: The $21,000,000 surplui inherited by the present admlnlKtra variously estimated fronj »1'!,659,«00. . , Before the, requirements of the governor's budget for tho next two years nnd.the amount «'revenue estimated in that perlod'ls a shortage of-$60,000,000. . -. Two Solutions Offered -Two solutions have beien advanced by various Interests to 'this embarrassing situation. } One. Is to slash state expenditures to a point where they will meet the revenues— In/ other words, the state would spend exactly what It receives,. The other plan Is to devise . new sources :of revenue, such a» a sales tax, a modified Income tax, or Increase the gross receipts tax on railroads, telephone and telegraph companies, gas and electric companies and other public, utilities. Should the latter measure be Introduced,. It is expected to result In the greatest, tax battle since the famous King tax bill fight In 1921. - . \ .Governor Rolph recommendations, if. Is believed, will follow closely the program recommended by his finance director, Holland A. Vandegrlft. Vandegrlft has already announced himself In favor, of a constitutional amendment abolishing all fixed charges "frozen" in tho Constitution. Th'ls would , particularly affect tho state's ?30-per-pupll allotment for elementary "and high schools, und would require. the schools to depend upon each succeeding session of the Legislature for support. Such* an .amendment would have to be voted • upon by ;the people, and Vandegrlft has proposed_» special election for the purpose. Other suggestions of Vandegrlft Include making the payment of interest and redemption of old highway bonds a charge upon the gasoline tax Instead of the general fund; and raising tho age limit for the old age pension from 70 to 76 years.
