FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE '-- ..... ·'·"· jvj " ^m vjuuoiij'ijAZiiiiim Legislators Make Preliminary Study of Aviation Program Ultucvutcncn ^·H-'WMM .....,,.,. ...» =- -- -- -- '* ·* ' UIU.IH MONEY NEEDED FOR PROMOTION Share of Gasoline Tax Recommended by Some Des Moines, (If 1 )--Gov. Robert D. Blue's recommendation for enactment of a new aviation code to regulate airport construction in Iowa already has legislative sup" port, but some proponents feel existing statutes should be revised so that gasoline taxes could be usec for aeronautical purposes. The recommendation was included in Blue's inaugural message Thursday. "To promote airports and airport facilities as they sfiould be ' promoted in the state· would require taking the money out of the general fund now," Senator Ralph E. Benson (R.-Jefferson) explained, . Benson, whose hobby is piloting a plane, is chairman o£ the newly- appointed senate aeronautics committee. He said some preliminary work had been done on a bill, to provide an aeronautics commission to supervise and promote a statewide program bj airport and airport-facilities construction. "But if we're going to get any funds from gasoline taxes, it will be necessary to revise the constitutional amendment passed by'the 49th general assembly and approved by the voters that excise taxes on motor vehicle fuel, except cost of administration, shall be used exclusively -for road- building .purposes," Benson explained. · The senator declared that much could be done to promote Iowa's airport facilities if funds collected from aviation gasoline were available. These .collections, he said increased from $5,054 in 1938 to 544,862 in 1944--the peak year. Benson said the type of aeronautics commission favored by .some legislators would be composed of 5 or 9 persons with a paid l executive officer to carry out its program.
