The principal bill passed by the Senate was one that would make »a radical change in the present State Board of Tax Commissioners. The bill calls for the addition of six, members, chosen from among county assessors. Such a change would mean give the control of assessment review to the locally elected assessors rather than to the three fulltime commissioners, as at present The vote was 31-15. Warn Against Change Sens. W. W. Hill Jr., R-Indi- •anapolis,- and Martin K. Edwards, R-New Castle, warned against passage of the change .in the present system that gives : the state commission the responsibility for. achieving uniform assessment. "Idon'tknow of any .'situation in which we • allow locally elected officials to dominate a state board," Hill said. Edwards called it "a very radical departure from the way things .'are now." Two developments in the Senate pointed toward changes also in the present method by which ' state park inns and-future inns and restaurants around feder- '"Generating (Continued from page one) physical impossibility to meet the time limits of presently prov posed regulations regarding the elimination of S02. There is no proven, full-scale methodforre- moving sulfur dioxide and even if such a process were developed tomorrow, electric utilities in the state would not be able to install such equipment before the proposed January .1, 1973 deadline." D Bids for the Noblesville project are expected to be let in the very near future and on-site construction is scheduled toobegin in the spring of 1972. Matthews also said that within the next two months, the company also would be making a decision on the method of reducingair pollution at its Edwardsport Generating Station in Knox County. THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE ally-constructed reservoirs are operated. The Natural Resources Committee, on a second try, voted 5-2 to recommend passage of a House-passed bill to allow sale of alcoholic beverages in future restaurants that may be built by private capital around reservoirs such as Monroe Reservoir, near Bloomington. The first time the bill, came out of the committee which amended it to spell out specifically a ban against sale or display of alcoholic beverages in state parks, or state recreational areas other than those on leased lands around the reservoirs. Will Try Again Also in the Senate, a bill to extend up to 25 years the issuance of contracts for operation of public accommodations . at state parks ran into objections and was withdrawn by its authors. Sens. Jess Andrew, R- West Point, and James Plaskett, r >New Washington, • However, Plaskett said he would call the bill down again today with ah amendment that the Indiana Attorney General also must approve such contracts in addition to the State Natural Resources Commission and the governor. Andrew said he felt that "we need.our state money for mental health and other things. If private capital will come in on this (operation of inns and eating places) so much the better." Sen. "John Shawley, R-Michigan City, charged "it won't be long before operators of inns will be coming here and saying they an't operate without liquor. I admit it is not in the bill now." He urged lawmakers to appropriate the moaey to remodel and build state park an<* state recreational area facili ties. ' But Sen. Charles Kleinkort, R-Brook, said he thought "government - is the poorest and most inefficient doer in the world. Inefficiency is inherent in government." He called the bill to let private capital operate state inns "a step forward." Other Biils The Senate also passed and sent to the House bills that would: — Allow an. injured employe to choose another, physician after 60 days if the company physician had not been able to achieve recovery. The vote was 27-20. Ons of the favorable arguments came from Sen. Robert L. Sheaffer, R-Shelbyville, who. told about a case he han­ dled as an attorney for a man who would have lost use of his band and arm had not a specialist been brought into the case. —Include electronic machines and products in a law concerning radiation control, 44-0. The House -Tuesday passed a measure aimed at tightening auto safety inspection regulations, particularly in the area of car bodies. Another House measure passed Tuewday would establish a merit system for many top officials in the Department of Correction, but would leave the commissioner's post as a political appointment. Revised Gas Rates Wait State Approval Indiana Gas Company filed.r'e- vised rate schedules with the Public Service Commission of Indiana which include minor adjustments designed to recover increases in the cost of gas purchased from interstate pipeline suppliers, according to J. W.Hei- ney, president of the utility. "If approved by the PSCI,' these revised rates will become effective on March 22 in accordance with the plan set forth in the commission's order of December 11, 1970 which permits the gas utilities of Indiana to adjust rates to reflect changes in purchased gas costs," Heiney said. ' 'These rate adjustments would result in no increase for an average residential non-space heating customer and an increase of approximately 2? per .winter month for an average residential space heating customer," he continued.
