Hutchins Discusses Measures (State Representatives, 56th District) By C.W. HUTCHINS On Monday the House passed a bill requiring reporting by corporate farms, H. P. 1360. The bill requires corporations and other businesses engaged in farming, livestock and poultry production to file annual reports on their operations. The reports would state whether agricultural land was leased or owned, whether poultry or livestock were fed on the land, and whether they held contracts for the growing of agricultural crops, livestock or poultry. The names of officers, major stockholders, the type of agricultural activity, location, acreage and amount of production would also have to be stated. Individually-owned farms would not have to report unless more than 1,000 acres or a large confined feedlot is involved. I am in complete support of this bill in that I think it will cause an awareness of the corporate invasion of agriculture in the State of Iowa. There has been a motion filed to reconsider on this bill, which is a delaying tactic by the opposition. The House also discussed a bill providing for land use planning in Iowa, H.F. 1422, on Tuesday. The bill had previously been defeated, but was reconsidered and after several amendments were adopted, passed. ^The bill provides for a 13-member state land use policy commission within the Department of Soil Conservation, which is to be renamed the Department of Soil Conservation and Land Use. The commission is to prepare land use guidelines including those regarding critical areas of state concern, large scale developments, key facilities, plans of other state agencies and local land use plans. These guidelines are to be submitted to the General Assembly for approval. Land Use Policy Commission would be established in each county, although each county could opt to hand over the duties of the local commission to existing regional planning agencies- ; or councils of governments. The local commission is responsible for developing local land use guidelines with which the existing county and city zoning commissions must comply. Zoning is not required. I realize there are some people in rural areas that oppose a land use policy. However, I would point out that an equivalent of 2Vz counties in the State of Iowa have been covered up by roads and urban sprawl in the last ten years. I believe that it is the responsibility of the legislature to adopt a plan that will stop this movement. Debate began on the DOT bill, S.F. 1141, on Wednesday. The bill which is the Governor's top legislative priority, has been already passed by the Senate. The Senate version provides for a State Deparment of Transportation which would include the existing Highway Commission, Aeronautics Commission and Department of Public Safety. An amendment legalizing 65-foot double bottom trucks, if they originate from a point in Iowa or are traveling to a point in Iowa, was passed. This does not legalize cross-country trucks merely passing through Iowa. The amendment legalizes these trucks on four'lane highways, within five miles of four lane highway and on 22 foot wide two-lane highways designated by the Highway Commission. On the long truck amendment, use of 60-foot trucks is allowed for ths hauling of livestock. This amendment was attached and adopted on two versions of the DOT bill. However, those two versions of the bill were defeated. At the time of this letter we are awaiting debate of the longer truck amendment on the final version of the DOT bill. A bill providing for 65-foot double-bottoms had already been passed by both houses, but was vetoed by the governor. House File 1406 is another bill passed by the House this week. It provides for exemption of agricultural exchange labor and the labor of spouses and family from the requirements of the Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 8, 1974 8 workmen's compensation law which was passed last year. The workmen's compensation law which was passed last session would leave some problems in regard to farmers who exchange help with their neighbors, and the question as to whether they had to carry workmen's compensation on these neighbors is clarified in this bill. Education Bill Good: Ferguson (Slate RepreMotattve, MUi Dittrfct) By W. R. FERGUSON The House has had a busy week, and I believe a week of solid achievement. On Thursday we neared a final vote on a State Department of Transportation. The House on Friday adopted a bill to establish intermediate school units to provide special education and other services for Iowa's school children. The bill would have these intermediate units replace the present county school systems on July 1,1975. It should provide a better educational program statewide. I proposed an amendment which was adopted to allow large areas such as ours at Ankeny to be sub-divided into smaller administrative units. This is an important change in Iowa's educational set up and one which has been studied for several years. It is a very good bill, I believe, and one which will serve well Iowa's school pupils. IThe House voted a change. in the Workmen's Compensation law which would exempt members of a farm family from the law, and eliminate the need for a farmer to insure members of his own family. We recently passed a bill which would increase the mileage allowance for public employees to 15 cents, due to the higher gas price. The former allowance was 10 cents per mile and legislators will continue at the 10 cents rate until next session. We also passed a land use bill in the House. This will allow the formation of a plan for the best possible use of Iowa's land. We are fortunate that Iowa has not suffered from land mis-use like some eastern or west coast states. I feel now is the time to formulate plans to make sure that the quality of life we now enjoy here in Iowa is preserved for future generations. The House has passed a bill requiring corporations engaged in farming to register. Prime purpose of the bill is to provide statistical information regarding the extent of corporation farming in Iowa. Please feel free to write me about pending legislation. Stop in at the legislature when you are in Des Moines. I'll be happy to visit with you. My address is Rep. Bill Ferguson, Seat 9, House of Representatives, Des Moines, Iowa, or you may call me at 515-281-3221. 3 Die on Highways By The Associated Press Three persons were killed on Iowa highways during the weekend. A Sioux City man was killed and another man injured Saturday night in a one-car accident eleven miles east of Sioux City. Killed was the driver of the car James Watts, 51, and injured was Howard Paxton, 40, also of Sioux City. Paxton was reported in fair condition at a Sioux City hospital. Authorities, said the Watts car was traveling east at a high rate of speed and left a county road when it rolled into farm field and came to a stop. A Merrill couple, identified as Robert Fraser, 75, and his wife, Petra, 79, died in a car-truck collision in LeMars Saturday night. Authorities said their car came to a stop sign at Iowa Highway 75 and a street intersection—and then pulled out in front of a truck. A passenger, Mrs. Wilma Jucek, 67, Merrill, was in fair condition at a Sioux City hospital. The driver of the truck James Thompson, 26, Lynden, Wash., escaped injury. Voted No on Public Talks Bill (Bute Senator, 24th District I • By WILLIAM P. WINKELMAN We could not get any amendments adopted on the public employee collective bargaining bill in the senate—and we had some real good ones. This powerful package is now on its way to the Governor, with its far reaching ramifications, imperfections and all. It is a sad day when the strong forces pushing this complex bill, one of the hottest issues in recent years, wouldn't permit even corrective amendments to be adopted. The final vote was 30 to 20.1 voted "no." As I have said before, "It is dangerous for any segment of society to have such power as this proposal permits, especially when not under direct control of the people." I hope it is handled wisely. If it isn't, the very ones that it purports to help the most will be among the biggest losers in the long run. I am glad the school aid bill has passed both houses now. A conference committee, of which we were fortunate to have Representative Miller as a member, compromised House and Senate versions whereby a school district would lose state aid for only 50 per cent of its enrollment loss in the fiscal year beginning July 1. The district would lose state aid for Vz of the enrollment decrease up to 5 per cent and 3 /4 of any decrease over 5 per cent in the fiscal year starting July 1,1975. Legislation often has to be the art of the possible. Talking with you at my weekend community visitations has been very pleasing and satisfying to me. Thank you 1 ! Please join me Saturday, April 13 at Lake View from 1 to 3 p.m. in the center of the business district, and Rockwell City from 4 to 6 p.m., at the southeast corner of the court house square. In an attempt to explain the urgency of the fertilizer problem, the need for an adequate supply and to request federal action to insure that a sufficient supply of reasonably priced fertilizer is available for the spring planting, the Senate voted to resolve that a committee consisting of one person appointed by the governor, two senators appointed by the lieutenant governor representing each political party, and the secretary of agriculture or his designee, personally visit the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture. We further resolved that the committee request that better allocation, of fertilizer be made to insure that all farmers have an equal opportunity to obtain fertilizer. The joint Senate-House appropriations sub-committee of which I am Senate chairman, approved $84,000 additional funds for beefing up our truck weight enforcement unit in an effort to curtail the flagrant over-weight violation tricks and games that a Classified Ad Information Dial 3573 All copy for classified ads and classified display ads must be in the Times YHerald by 9 a.m. day of publication Monday through Friday and B a.m. on Saturday to insure publication.

Among actions we need to take are more citizen band radio monitoring and more flexible weighing times and places. The road repair saved and fines collected will more than pay the cost. Of most importance, we cannot afford to tolerate our state law enforcement being run down — not any part of it — not evfen by a truck. We passed a bill out of State Government Committee to tighten up the new Campaign Disclosure Law. Section 1 provides that the treasurer of a political committee shall report all disbursements of more than $5 to a person during the calendar year — a provision that I couldn't get enough support for last year, in committee or on the floor. This is an example where the net results across the nation of Watergate can be a plus factor. Also, a bill tightening the present state security laws passed the Senate. Senate action this week also included the creation of a bureau of ceritral registery for reporting ail cases of child abuse, and striking a law that requires that the'testimony of a rape victim be corroborated by other evidence before a suspect can be convicted of the crime. Audubon FFA Elects Officers AUDUBON - The Audubon Future Farmers of America Chapter has elected new officers for the 1974-75 term.
