The House today received a bill passed by the Senate Thursday, 29-16, that puts some teeth in a 1953 anti-secrecy law, including, possible jail terms for door-slamming public officials. If the* measure- passes the ^denying a citizen House, it would also have to be attend a meeting signed by the governor to become law. * The bill was one of 10 passed by the Senate Thursday. The House passed 12 bills but its biggest advancement came in the renewed movement of a five-bill property tax relief package. Both Senate and House Republican leaders have said the package must be handled as a package. One of the lagging measures has been a local option bill to permit counties to add a 1 per cent to the individual income tax of residents. • - . •'• This local option bill survived a Democratic effort to amend it and now is in third and final reading in the House. Bills to increase the sales and income taxes as a partial replacement for property tax are in the Sen- Ate Finance Committee, as is a control bill. Sen. Walter Helmke, R-Fort Wayne, taxation subcommittee chairman who*-held a hearing Thursday on the control bill, said none of the bills will be reported out until all are ready to be presented as a package. A school distribution 1 formula, containing a reduced ceiling on property -tax for school purposes, also is part of the package and it is still in House Ways and Means Committee. Provides Fines • The proposed changes in the Hughes Anti-Secrecy Act as it passed the Senate after lively debate would: — Impose a fine of from $50 to $500 and a possible maximum jail term of 30 days from any public official of a state or local governmental administrative body convicted of the right to of the body or agency., i — Provide that "any resolution, rule, regulation decision or formal action of any kind adopted at an executive session of the administrative body or agency . which j attempts to defeat" the anti-secrecy provisions of the existing act will be void. Benjamin said the 1953 act "has not been enforceable." He told the senators "one of t h e most important pieces of legislation to pass. in these halls to . encourage j the participation of people in their government" could be the amending bill. Sen. Joseph Harrison, R-AMi­ ca, questioned whether, school boards might not have difficulty in abiding by the act in cases involving "a moral situation in a school in which a person's future might be put in jeopardy." He voted against the measure. Benjamin said the 1971 Legislature, which for the first time ended executive committee sessions, should be willing to give the same assurance of anti-secrecy in other meetings affect- ; ing the public's business. The 1953 law had been authored by then -j Rep. W. O. Hughes, now Allen Circuit Court judge. | V " Pollution Bill Passes The Senate also passed a bill that gives the Indiana Stream Pollution Control Board increased authority and guidelines to deal with pollution from feed-, lots. The vote was 41-4 and the bill now goes to the House.; The bill has been criticized by; some environmental control : spokesmen as being weaker than they wanted. j But Sen. Lawrence Borst, R- Indianapolis-, the author, .said'it would be "a significant step toward pollution control." Borst said it applies only to "confined feedlot operation." The bill describes such an operation as one in which 300 or more cattle, 600 or more swine or sheep, or 30,000 or more fowl are confined and fed "By means "other than grazing." j The bill provides that per•i I • (Continued on page eight) Three File For City Council Three candidate filings for .Tipton C ity: Councllmen were on record 'Friday morning at the Tipton County Clerk's Office. ..
