EIGHT IRON WOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, JULY 37, 7965. Romney, Committee to Work On Bipartisan Tax Program SHORT RIBS—By Frank O'Neal By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP)—Qov. George Romney and a legislative committee will try to agree within two or three weeks on a bipartisan tax program that would raise $200 million in extra state funds in the next two years. Four alternative tax plans were submitted to the committee Friday. Two more versions soon will be developed. Independent analysts will try to assess the impact of the plans on taxpayers and the state's economy. Then Romney and the committee will meet at Mackinac Island for two days in an attempt to agree on one of the plans. Even if the committee reaches agreement, the chances a plan would be approved by the legislature this fall are in doubt because of strong opposition from some influential legislators to any new taxes before 1967. Romney said existing programs will carry the state into the red within two years and that tax action should be taken now, not in a time of crisis. He said the committee Friday came somewhat to grips with the political implications of tax action. Each of the plans includes a $66 million boost in cigarette taxes. Three include income taxes and repeal of the sales tax on food and one proposes a sales tax on some services. The two variants to be developed would provide higher income tax exemptions and cut out the sales tax relief. * * * About $146 million of the $200 million would be required to continue existing programs. Some $25 million would be available for new programs in 1966-67 and another $29 million for more new programs in 196768, said Romney. Rep. George Montgomery, D- Detroit, House Taxation Committee chairman and an advocate of tax action, said there "is a growing feeling in the number of votes toward a bipartisan approach to tax reform. We should play the string out." But he and Romney agreed it was impossible accurately to forecast any over-all house or senate feeling until one program is agreed upon by Romney and the committee. Romney said the "realization of a need for action has grown steadily." Romney said either the Citizens Research Council of Detroit or any of several university tax experts would evaluate the alternatives in terms of taxpayer impact and Michigan's competitve position with other states. The cigarette tax plan, used in all the alternatives, would be a two-cent boost to nine cents effective Jan. 1 coupled with an additional one-penny increase July 1, 1967. Net revenue would be $66 million for the next two years.
