Edwards of two bills increasing state taxes by a total of about $20 million annually have now been overridden by the legislature. The latest override came Thursday when the House and Senate voted to nullify the governor's veto of a bill increasing the-state gasoline tatf by. a penny per gallon. The gasoline hike, from eight to nine cents a gallon, will take effect July 1. It will raise about (16 million annuallly and will cost the average motorist about $8 per year. Also on Thursday, the House upheld the veto by Edwards that would.have permitted persons over 18 to ride motorcycles without wearing protective helmets. The House sustained the veto on a 57-35 vote. Although a majority voted to override, it would have taken a two-thirds vote of 62 to do so, The House overrode the gasoline tax increase 77-23, with 67 votes needed to meet the two- thirds requirement. The Senate did so on a 28-8 roll call, with 24 needed to override. A spokesman for the State Alken Reps. Collins, Me- Gowam and Rudnick voted to override the gas tax veto yesterday while Rep. Bos- bee voted against. In the Senate, Sen. Knotts voted to override the bill and Rep. McMillan voted against. Sen. Turnipseed did not vote. Tax Commission estimated unofficially the increase will' cost the average motorist about S8 a year, based on 12,000 miles driven annually and gasoline consumption of 15 miles per gallon. Annual consumption would be 800 gallons and the total state tax on that at nine cents a gallon would be $72. Paul W. Cobb, chief state highway commissioner, said the "substantial" vote to override the veto was a vote of confidence in the Highway Department. "We pledge to make the most beneficial use of this additional revenue that we feel is so badly needed if we are to continue to have a highway program that South Carolinians need and deserve." On Tuesday, the House and Senate overrode a penny-per- pack increase in the state cigarette tax which will bring in about S3.9 million annually. In brief remarks before the vote on overriding the gasoiinfc tax veto, Rep. Ralph K. Ander son, D-Florence, said the hill "should receive the oscar as" far as the worst bill of the a for consumers is concerned. "The score is now Highway Department $16 million, consumers zero," he declared. Rep. David Mclnnis, D-Sumter, tried unsuccessfully to have the House override the veto on the helmet bill. He said many motorcyclists have been killed or seriously injured because the helmets restrict i sion. SUNBURN?

Senate concurrence in the House changes was considered likely. Rejection of the House amendments could block final passage of the capital punishment bill until at least next year because time is running out in the 1977 legislative session. The House Thursday cut off a six-day opposition filibuster by blacks and approved the bill 7330. It was sent back to the Senate for consideration of the House amendments. The 13 blacks in the House had kept up running arguments against passage for six legislative days. Their filibuster ended Thursday when the House voted 70-26 to invoke its cloture rule, giving the opponents just one additional hour to talk. Before the start of the House session, members of the Legislative Liaison Committee had agreed that passage of the death penalty bill was the major item standing in the way of adjournment of the 1977 session. Both the House and Senate met today and then, if all goes as planned, will adjourn until Thursday of next week, with final adjournment set for Friday, June 10. In their final hour of debate, the blacks repeated their arguments that the electric chair will be used mainly against and poor whites, and that the death penalty does not serve to deter murder. Pointing to the electronic voting board, Rep. I. S. Leevy Johnson, D-Richland, chairman of the Black Caucus, told the "When you pull that switch today-on your desks, it is just like pulling the switch to turn on the juice in the electric chair." The only proponent speaking for the bill just prior to passage was Rep. Sterling Anderson, D- Spartanburg. He said the House majority had listened "with tolerance" to six days of arguments in which opponents constantly referred to condemned criminals as "the victims." LIVING ABUNDANTLY A. K. Carter Lift in abundance is productd by the spoken Word. God spoke the world into existence. He spoke man into existence. He tells us that when begin to be- iievt that what said is, and when we speak In line with His word and believe we have what we say, then we do. But we need to know what the Word of God says. To speak what we believe to be truth is of no vatue unless we believe because God says so, "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom. Confess victory in the face of apparent defeat. Confess abundance In the face of apparent lack. Jesus said as thou hast believed, so be It done unto thee" (Matt. Let's speak God's word to Satan. Let's speak God's word to self. Let's speak God's word to circumstances. Live in God's authority. Receive God's provision of life, love and power through the fullness of God's Holy Spirit.
