Urges Passage Of Revenue Bi!! Laney Tells Senate Proposal WouldCure Faulrs In Tax Setup H'lTLE ROCK, Feb. H (U.P.) — Governor Laney this morning appealed to the Arkansas Senate to pass his revenue slauilizalioii bill. Laney, speaking to the Senate in Mialf of the measure introduced in both the Senate and House yesterday, said the proposal would correct many faults found in Ihe present. tax distribution setup. And pointed out Use 'following advantages of his measure: First, says Laney, the plan would maintain all present governmental services at a higher standard. / Second, it would make Arkansas a debt free stale, except for the highway debt. Third, it would obvialc the necessity for additional taxes. Fourth, it would make possible (ax reductions. Fifth, it would provide more state aid for the educational system. Sixth, it would provide more stale aid for cities and counties. Seventh, it would remove from their precarious position public institutions and essential governmental agencies which Laney says arc dependent on revenues that might be wiped out by the changing social and economic conditions. Eighth, the plan would create a true stale surplus. Ninlli, it would modernize and simplify the state's accounting. Tenth, it would make it possible for all stale agencies lo participate in increased revenue on equitable Ijiisis. Laney says that in the event of a revenue decrease. It would be overcome by transfers from the .surplus. Eleventh, it- encourages all stale. agencies and institutions lo operate efficiently and economically. And. Twelfth Laney snys it would convince those outside the state that "We have the ability to handle our financial affairs in an intelligent :md business like manner." The Governor was to make a similar appeal to members of the House this afternoon. Father Of Four Suffers Wound in Luxembourg •~.-/-u..*.. . , r .> ,. -^ Pvt.
