Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, May 13, 1974 Key Bills Listed by Ferguson By W.R.Ferguson iNliilr Hi'|iri'snil;i1iu'. fifilh Ilislrli'lt The Legislature concluded its work, the House adjourning at 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, May 5, after a rather tumultous session. It's been a frustrating session in many ways — but one which 1 believe will have a great influence on the future of our state and on the lives of all of us. Many of the bills we considered were extremely long, complicated and technical. Here are the bills I consider most important, classified in eight general categories. Government Modernization — 1. Department of Transportation. 2. Establishment of the Area Education Agencies, replacing the 100 year old county school system. 3. Established a Department of History, combining three present bureaus into one.4. Set up procedures for licensing doctors, lawyers, watchmakers and about 25 other occupations. 5. Established an emergency Energy Management Commission. 6. Passed a Uniform Procedures Act relations to the administration of state departments and appeals from their decisions. Social Legislation — 1. A modern Child Abuse law. 2. New Commission for Alcoholism. 3. Increased appropriation for day care centers and established standards for those receiving state money. 4. Passed new obscenity law. 5. Eliminated need for corroboration in rape cases. 6. Improved foster care pay. 7. Bill to make movement for handicapped and wheel chair patients easier. Schools — 1. Extra appropriation for state foundation aid. 2. School standards up-dated. 3. Busing app/oved for, non-publ[c schools. Business — 1. Passed U.C.C.C. setting maximum interest rates and establishing many consumer protection devices. 2. 'U.C.C., an act bring Iowa's business laws up to date. 3. Approved new uses for Industrial Revenue bonds. Taxes — 1. Took Sales Tax off food and drugs. 2. Increased deductions on state income tax. 3. Increased exemption on inheritance tax. 4. Approved deduction on property tax for pollution control equipment. 5. Defined "Personal" property. Inflation — Increased wages of state employees about 7Vi- per cent plus disability insurance. 2. Increased appropriations to state departments and institutions. Capitals — 1. New meat, laboratory at Iowa State University. 2. New design center building at Iowa State University. 3. Approved new- office building replacing old building in downtown area. 4. Approved new agriculture building. 5. Completed fine arts building at UNI. 6. New testing laboratory for Highway Commission. 7. New liquor warehouse. 8. Increased appropriation for Conservation Commission, including a study of the feasibility of dredging Blackhawk Lake. Miscellaneous — 1. 55 mile per hour speed limit. 2. Collective bargaining bill for public employees. 3. Sewer aid bill, including appropriation for Carroll, Jefferson and Coon Rapids. 4. Allowed barbers and beauty operators to cut both men's and women's hair for the next year, while both groups get together on a licensing bill they can approve. Of course these are not all the bills we passed — but they are some of the more important ones. I'm sure the net result for lowans will be a better community in which to live — even if there is a bill or two on the list that you may not like. There may be one or two that I don't like too!
