MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 18 IBB 1937 NINE HOOSE REJECTS TELEPHONE ACT Turns Down Bill to Place Firms Under Municipal Regulation. DES MOINES, (P)-- The Iowa house of- representatives, citing possible confliction with interstate commerce regulations, rejected Thursday a proposal to place telephone companies under municipal regulation. Defeat of the measure by a top heavy vote climaxed charges by its sponsor, Rep. Milton \V. Strickler (R) ol Des Moines, that telephone lobbyists had "infested the house" to prevent its passage. In an otherwise tame morning session, the house acted quickly on another emergency bill to separate chattel . mortgages from mortgages made for farm loans, and added its approval to a senate bill for "Iowa use" of Iowa coal. , . ' ' The house also revamped another senate bill providing for increase of the poll tax from $2 to ?3 at the option of the county boards, to provide for outright repeal of the tax and then passed the proposal 91 to 3. Amendment Is Deferred. It deferred until Friday, action on a constitutional amendment for initiative and referendum in the repeal of old statutes and enactment of new ones, and set as a special order of business ior next Thursday, a bill for i-CDeal of the ?2 head tax for old age pensions. In urging passage oS the telephone regulation proposal Strickler carried on a virtual "one man" fight. He charged that Iowa had undertaken the regulation of all other public utilities but had permitted "telephone companies to fix rates as they see fit." Before voting the bill down, the house heard the assertion that Iowa uses more telephones pel- capita than most states, and that its rates are much lower, anci that attempted regulation would interfere with interstate commerce rules with respect to interstate tolls. Pass Iowa Coal Bill. The house skirmished for some time before passing the senate bill requiring the use of Iowa coal by the state and subdivisions but approved it 70 to 21, after hearing appeals for the support of "Iowa's second industry." : The chamber defeated a move to permit the abrogation of state coal contracts under certain conditions, and then adopted another amendment to permit the purchase of coal from smaller mines. The h'ouse concurred 85 to C in senate-.a.mendments to a house bill -- to tracUbfl corrip'arues'.foivbperation of buses ! and :passed"'a corrective - : 'measure relating to remission of taxes to insolvent banks. It also passed a'senate bill permitting operation of a weather and crop service in the department of agriculture and then adjourned until 9:30 a. m., Friday.
