MONDAY, MARCH 27, 1939 APRIL 19 LIKELY DATE FOR CLOSE OF LEGISLATURE Probably House to Take Up Appropriations Consideration First By the Iowa Press Association DES MOINES--The probable time oj sine die adjournment of the 48th Iowa General Assembly is calculated by most observers as April 19, although there are numerous enthusiasts who fix the time as April 12. Whether April 1-2 or April 19, it appears that the forecasters of final adjournment day are'agreed that the breakup shall be on a Wednesday, the reason for which still is obscure. On April 19, the legislature will nave been in session 101 days and the pay of legislators will have ceased on the one hundredth day. Hence, it is argued, sine die adjournment will be special order of business in the legislature in shortest possible time thereafter. But among most legislators there is a general desire to adjourn earlier, i£ possible. ; The Longest Day . History of legislative sessions has been, however, that in fixing a date of final adjournment, legislators have in fact changed the date of the longest day in the year from June 21 to the approximate date in April, of legislative years. This paradox is explained in the stopping of the legislative clocks at the hour of the established sine die adjournment. Whatever business of the legislature is accomplished after that hour and time is reckoned as having been transacted, an. that day whether this takes a week or more thereafter Two years ago the date of final adjournment was April 20, but the last piece ,6£ legislative business was transacted actually on April 28. Four years ago, the legislature actually quit on May 4. The primary business of any legislature is to appropriate money to carry out the functions of state government for the ensuing biennial period which starts on July 1, following the close of the legislature. Tha commonwealth of Iowa functions on a fiscal year basis, hence-the setting of a starting date at variance with the beginnings of a calendar year. All other business transacted by a legislature is secondary or incidental. Much of the secondary business serves to fill in the time and occupy members of the legislature until the biennial appropriation measure is made ready for presentation to and consideration by legislators. .-· Claims Are Investigated ...The bUl soinetimes is known as the administration budget containing the askings by state de- p_artments and 'the' recommendation of the last governor and the state comptroller. Appropriations committees of house and senate investigate the claims on the state treasury and likewise make recommendations. The legislature representing the people of Iowa, have the final word on the subject of state expenditures.

Approximately two weeks are required for consideration. Usually additional time is spent in reconciling differences of opinion between house and senate on individual. Herns of the bill in conference committees. If one conference fails to agree, other conferences are arranged with new sets of conferees until agreement is at lasl reached. Unlike the congress of the United States, the Iowa general assembly does not adhere to a rule of consideration of the budget bill first -in the house o£ representatives. It has happened that the senate here has had first consideration of the bill and there is a known instance where both houses of the legislature were considering the bill simultaneously. Probably First in House The prospect for this session, however, is that the appropriation measure will see consideration first in the house, because a file number had been reserved for it there--H. F. 200, and none had been reserved in the senate. Adoption of the budget is not, however, the last act of a legislature. Final adjournment waits on conference committee reports on other pending bills and on the passage of the so-called state millage bill which authorizes the state tax 'levy on which the administration appropriation bill depends in large measure. Before the millage bill is Submits to Operation ROCKWELL--Robert Johnso youngest son of Mrs. Rose John son, underwent an operation a the Rockwell hospital Friday fo appendicitis.
