EIGHT IRONWOOD DAIIY GIOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, JULY 31,1965. 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 plans on the impact of taxpayers and the state's economy. Then Romney and the committee will meet at !Macklnac 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' P ames ' ^ million, the political implications of tax' T ~ o action.
