7A --J une 9,1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail -Ctwlesfcn. Weit Virginia Bond Sales Top 30-Item Call The Astociated Pres* Gov. Moore's 30-item call to the upcoming special session of the West Virginia Legislature includes sale of Vietnam veterans bonus bonds and $150 million in road bonds. Both items were approved by voters as constitional amendments in 1972. In addition, the second special session of the legislature which gets under way Tuesday will have the authority to consider a state budget. Democratic leaders contended that the lack of a budget had held up passage of other measures d u r i n g the regular and first special ses- sions. Moore has twice vetoed Vietnam veterans legislation, voicing concern over the method of financing. In each case, the legislation earmarked existing liquor profits to pay off the bonds, but the Governor has insisted that new funds are needed to pay off the bonds. He complained that using liquor profits would only cut into general fund revenues. During the special session, administration forces pushed for a cigarette tax as the means of funding the bonds, but that proposal lacked sufficient support. The Governor also called upon lawmakers to make changes in state law regarding interest rates. Legislation that would have raised the interest ceiling on home mortgages from 8 per cent to 9 per cent was rejected last month by lawmakers: Also included in the agenda was legislation: ··Authorizing salary increases for teachers and non- teaching personnel. ··Authorizing state sharing and distribution of federal revenue sharing funds to local units of govegnment for specified projects. ··Providing for collection of a deposit on sale of new vehicles to finance the REAP pro- gram. ··Increasing the maximum amount of scholarship awards to West Virginia students attending state colleges. ^Providing for the establishment of a state Environmental Protection Agency by consolidating existing departments. ··Providing for establishment of the West Virginia In-, teragency Council for Child Development. ··Authorizing the director of the Department of Natural Resources to expend reclamation funds on older stripped lands which need additional reclamation work. ··Provide for creation of a state Energy, Economy and Environment Commission. ··Amending the state's water pollution control laws to comply with federal requirements. ··Providing for the control and management of Morris Harvey College. ··Authorizing the state fire marshal to make and enforce rules for tying down mobile homes. ··Requiring county school boards to use a competitive bidding procedure on all construction contracts. ··Granting increases to members of the Teachers' Retirement System who retired prior to July 1, 1970. · ·,, · - js * v ~^ Strong sect edge,.with firmer edge coils, border wire, locked edge.
