MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 2 Mi 1936 SEVEN STATE FINANCES OUT OF RED I vr. REPORT MADE ON FIRST 3 MONTHS Five Methods Used to Take Care of Oversight by Legislature. DES MOINES, (JP -- A state comptroller's report Thursday showed how the state government kept out of the red during the first three months this year despite legislative action which put the treasury in a financial hole. Besides voting appropriations totaling 51,500,000 in excess of anticipated revenues the legislature, in shifting- from three point taxes to a property levy for the state government's main support, left a barren three months' period in the fiscal calendar. Iowa lawmakers in their last session voted to quit the use of sales and income tax receipts for state purposes at the end of the 1935 calendar year. Neglect Three Months. But in reimposing property taxes, they neglected to provide a direct revenue source from Jan. 1 until mid-April, when property tax money begins to flow into the state treasury. The comptroller's report showed five methods were used to tide the state's finances over January, February and March this year. They were: Use of ?12S,312 of profits from the state's liquor sales monopoly. Curtailing expenditures to amass a $1,588,219 cash balance at the end of December. Speeding up collection of revenues from indirect sources, which annually net the state treasury ap- proximateIyS6.000.000. Postpone Expenditures. Postponing the use of $1,237,730 in three point revenues allocated by law for the 1933 calendar year. Postponing until May the expenditure *of nearly 5500,000 voted for building and improvements at state institutions. Through these measures, the report showed, the state treasury met expenditures during the period and ended with a $669,717.31 balance on April 1. The comptroller estimated property tax revenues for the state government will be 55,000,000 from first half collections this year and about $400,000,000 from last half, due in September. Tax Funds Available. With property tax funds available, the comptroller predicted the state will have a ,$3,000,000 cash balance just as a carryover ..until last half collections, and a similar nest egg on Jan. 1 to supplement other revenues until first property tax collections of next year come into the treasury in April. Officials said the liquor commission is prepared to turn over to the state general fund a total of §1,- 250,000 during the 1936 calendar year. Thus the discrepancy between appropriations and anticipated revenues will be in a large measure overcome. Get Indirect Revenues. Among collections of indirect revenues which were speeded up by state administrative officials in or- HERE and THERE Miscellaneous items From 125 Globe-Gazette Correspondents in North Iowa and Minnesota.
