.MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 18 IB 1937 *i f SEVEN STUDY PLANS TO PAY FOR ROADS Iowa House, Senate Groups Receive Diverging Proposals. DBS MOINES, (/P)--House and senate committees Thursday pondered diverging proposals to raise additional funds through taxes on trucks to pay for farm-to-niarket road construction. Fred White, chief engineer for the state highway department, advocates a more comprehensive ton-mile tax plan, but with an exemption or 1,000 ton-miles per month, which would relieve most farm trucks and small delivery trucks from all but the uniform- license fee. ' Wallace Disagrees. Lew E. Wallace, superintendent of the state motor vehicle department, disagrees with White on this point. Wallace, whose department would be charged with enforcement of the law, said it would make bookkeepers out of all truck drivers," and that speedometers are not dependable. "Anybody with five minutes instruction can take 500 miles off a speedometer in five minutes, or his fingers are slow. If you don't believe it, just ask any automobile dealer," Wallace declared. Wallace's plan is to keep a small and uniform registration fee, in addition to which there would be imposed a flat weight tax, based on the gross weight of the vehicle and (he load carried. Truckers Urge Repeal. Truckers represented by C. E. Bellow, manager of the Iowa Warehouse and Motor Carriers' association,'advocate repeal'of the present ton^mile tax provision and adoption of a plan similar to Wallace's, but with a different gradu- atior. of weights. White estimates his plan, which would apply to buses as well as trucks, would bring in $2,500,000 additional funds. Wallace estimated his. plan would bring in an additional $1,000,000, while Bellow believes the truckers' plan would add §1,500,000 to present revenue.
