(NEA Radio-Telephoto) Legislature Faces Uncertain Agenda in September Session By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) — An uncertain agenda of topics that could range from taxes to county home rule faces the legislature in Septembr—including some deferred from a two-day session that concluded Friday without major action. Legislators left behind them Friday an untouched pile of vetoed bills, controversy over highway sign controls and the problem of filling Judicial vacancies. Ahead of them stands principally the question of what to take up at the session beginning Sept. 14. Senate Majority Leader Raymond D2endzel said "we'll be studying expenditures and revenues but it will be up to the membership in September to decide if we take up taxes." Gov. George Romney has pressed for immediate fiscal reform but hasn't been able to generate legislative enthusiasm for the idea. * * * House Democrats will decide what to talk about when they 4 From Area On Honor List BIG RAPIDS — Four r e s i- dents of Gogebic County were among the more than 550 Ferris State College students who were named to the dean's honor list for academic excellence duri n g the past quarter. Dr. Ardwin J. Dollo, vice president for academic affairs, has announced. To be named to the dean's honor list a student must maintain at least a B average while carrying a full academic load. The students were William A Montesi, junior in the Trade and Industrial Division and son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Montesi Bessemer; Gary A. Sand e 11 sophomore in the School of Commerce and son of Mr. and Mrs Albert Sandell, Ironwood; Don R. Sawaski, junior in the Schoo of Commerce and son of Mr and Mrs. H. Sawaski,'Wakefield and Verle H. Wiita, sophomore in the School of Pharmacy and sor of Mr. and Mrs. Wlita, Wakefield SCHOOL BOARD PROCEEDINGS Postmasters Bill Passed WASHINGTON (API — Postmasters in towns and cities will have a five-day, '40-hour work week if President Johnson signs a bill before him. The Senate finished congressional action on the measure Wednesday. It applies to about 25,000 postmasters In the first, second and third class offices that cover cities and towns of any size. USE DAILY GLOBE WANT-ADS et here, said Rep. J. Bob Trax- er, D-Bay City, majority floor eader. "We plan to hold a caucus Sept. 14.—or possibly the day jefore—to decide what should be on the agenda for the fall session," Traxler said. Some Democrats, especially n the senate, are downright cold on the idea of taxes. The .cam of vociferous tax supporters is small. Rep. Roy Spencer, R-Attica, tried to warm the tax reform climate in the house Friday. But the only applause he drew from the Democratic majority came when he read criticism from Democratic State Chairman Zolton Ferency about Romney's refusal to present his own tax plan. Consideration of Romney's 23 vetoes was put over until September because the senate Republican bloc effectively barred any overrides. * * * Dzendzel said the autumn session will have to consider establishment of rules for the new legislative auditor general. Romney vetoed one bill in that area because he said it went beyond the constitution. Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley ruled Friday that the bill Is constitutional—a weapon Democrats hope to use in the fall. Kelley and Romney are on the same side but apparently against many legislators on the Judicial vacancy question. They support a broad plan of gubernatorial appointments but most legislative leaders want to provide for fewer appointments. Romney had hoped to win support this week for a November constitutional amendment election on Judicial appointments but the question was delayed until fall. Also deferred was the highway sign control fight when legislators decided that federal highway aid was not in immediate danger of being lost. * * * County home rule, approved earlier this year in the senate, is a likely autumn topic with the house planning interim study. The only action of "much consequence Thursday and Friday was the senate's 29-0 approval of a U.S. Constitutional amendment concerning presidential disability. The house will study the amendment further before acting. Rep. Harry Demaso, R-Battle Creek, introduced a Joint resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to allow the state to set up a fund of up to $5 million to "grant to, or in 1 aid of, public benefit corporations" money for low interest loans to new or expanding industries in Michigan. "Twenty-five other states allow the use of tax money to develop industry," said Demaso, head of the subcommittee. "And it has helped them considerably."
