Group asks updating of government DBS MOINES CAP)—An "updating" of local government in Iowa, including county consolidations and the merger of city and county functions where feasible, is one o£ the legislative goals of the Iowa Taxpayers Association for 1965.

Regarding financial policy, the association said Iowa's economic growth will yield enough additional revenue to meet new demands in general operations of state government without a tax increase. For programs to raise state money as a replacement for local property taxes the association said it would not oppose an increase in the state sales tax but did not believe income taxes should be tapped for that purpose. , In the face of impending demands for a big boost in state aid to local schools, the associa- 41 attend Legion event CLEAR LAKE—Forty-one Legionnaires attended the free membership dinner served by the VFW Auxiliary, at the VFW Post Home Thursday evening.
