JIONDAY, MARCH 10, 1947 ^ 1947 Legislature A Free Spender Appropriations for Next Biennium Run Highest in History «V HOI! limed Press Staff Corrcspuiidcnt UTTLE ROCK, Ark., Mar. 10. — (OP)—The 5Bth General Assembly of Arkansas !s going clown In history as the freest spending legislature of nU times. While complete appropriation IKgurcs are not available, one leading state fiscal expert estimated to- da> that tlie total for next l\vo years is 50 j\er cent more than amounts set out for the current btennium. He predicted that the total will reach the astronomical figure of $250,000,000 — including 2$00.000,000 in state fluids and $50,- OW.O in federal nioney. Grand total appropriations for tlie present bicnniiim amounted to $172,303,512—of which S147.243.511 wv.a state money and $25,150,000 federal funds. Evidence that his estimate is fairly accurate is found in the fact tnat the legislature Is in th c process of appropriating in state and federal funds more than $160,000,000 for three departments alone. -More than $70,000,000 has been set aside for county roads and the highway department, some $50,000,030- for the education department ami more than $41,000,000 for'the welfare department. Highway Director J. C. Baker explained, however, that the state doe s not expect to have all of the nioney appropriated for his department, it was set aside in case the federal government should increase feciera.! aid. The welfare appropriation is designed to include some SG.Coo.OOO in surplus funds which the department has on hand. Meanwhile. Gov. Ben Laney said he would not sign bills that woultl i overdraw their accounts. if "II they are kept within estimated revenues." Laiicy said, "there probably will be no vetoes. But il appropriations have been made that will run various funds into the red, I might have to trim them a iittle." ncmined of \eiv Dealers Stale Controller John Truemper said - several appropriation Bills Jiave not received thc governor's signature and a tew others arc pending between the houses. These facts jnakc it impossible to arrive .it Hie total appropriations at this lime. "This legislature has reminded me of New Deal days in Washington," Trucmper commented. He pointed out, however, that a considerable Portion of the appropriations came from surpluses in various departments. The general rev- cnue fund—which had a total distribution oT'$34,220,828 Wine revenue year ol 1945-46—is expected to fcat^i $.10.000,000 annually. He admitted readily that the amount appropriated was well above estimated revenue which, with new (axes voted this year, is expected logo above $60,000,000 n year. At, no time during the session have economy pains particularly bothered the legislature. At one time, however, the House became economy minded and slashed two .'lien off the payroll of the Resources and Development Commission— tolal saving: SB.VOl). Shortly thereafter thc House raised salaries in Ula Forestry Department of thc R. No Wed ding Bel Is Now _BLYT11EVILLE (ARK.)'
