MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 1934 THE FREEPORT JOURNAL-STANDARD PAGE THREE LOCAL FINANCIAL THIRD SPECIAL SESSION WILL NOT LACK SUBJECTS TO WORK ON GOVERNMENT SUBDIVISIONS ARE "BROKE" OR HARD UP Schoolmen Arc Most Clamorous In Demands and Are Asking: Im- postion of New Taxes BY ROBERT P. HOWARD Associated Press Staff Writer Springfield, 111., Jan. 8—(/P)— Emergency finances or special authority In coping with local problems today had been requested most of the governmental sub-divisions In Illinois. It will mean a heavy calendar for the general assembly's third specla session, which is to follow the current consideration of liquor control Public schools head the ranks ol special legislation petitioners, bul municipalities, counties and many o: the district governments also are In line with emergency requests. Most of the local problems originate from the joint causes of defaulted tax payments, decreasing revenue, and heavy drains on treasuries for relief and other needs. School People Ask New Taxes New taxes for the schools will be asked by Senator N. M. Mason Oglesby Republican and new president of the Illinois State Teachers association. His organization recently went on record for income taxes on Individuals and corporations anc on grain futures transactions, designed to furnish operating revenue, for the educational system. School lobbyists have pleaded for immediate action, claiming that classes must be suspended in many districts where large amounts of tax anticipation warrants have been issued against uncollected taxes. Municipal League's Remedy The Illinois municipal league has submitted a program to permit cities and villages, among other things, to levy increased taxes In an effort to alleviate financial distress. Trouble also Is being had by the counties, with most of the largei units having deflated treasuries because of charity costs and tax defaults. The suggestion has been made that counties be permitted to pay debts from highway tax revenues. Chicago officials have not announced their definite program but it has been indicated that enabling legislation would be asked for the city, school board and sanitary district. The first special session during October gave considerable attention to local legislation, part of which failed to get approval and one series of bills being of uncertain status because of a "ghost" roll call in the senate. Federal activities, including the civil works-direct relief program, also will require enabling legislation to permit full and continued co-operation on the part of the state and its subdivisions. Date Not Determined The date for the third special session hasn't been determined. Governor Homer has insisted that the liquor question first be settled by the legislature and that might require several more weeks if bad snarls develop as a result of the scores of amendments or If the two houses have difficulty in agreeing on the numerous points of controversy. It is possible that the third session might finish part of its work by early March and then recess until after the April 10 primary, reconvening then to work through the spring months.
