Wednesdo April 18. 1971 „3 Walker^ GOP Senators Progress on Roads This Year By BXXB&Kt KIECKHDBf^R SMMNOIPIELD (UPl)-The ptoffOMd QUnois MiplrfcnMi^ tal Utanty system^ once a grand vistoti ai nearfy 2,000 miles ol stetMNiHt aupeifiigh^ ways, cfiss^inissiiig downstate, has beooRMi mired in a politi' eal squabMe between Gov. Daniel Walk^ and Senate Re- ptibUeans. tile <eud makes it inci^as-^ Ifigly unlikely that any substantial amount of work will be done on the road neitwork during titis construction sea- TliE CORE of the probl^ is that Walker has not yet decided how much ol (he system he wonts built. And, while he deddes, he has frozen tthe entire imgram by taking it out Q< the Department of Transportetion's biddif« pKh cess. Senate GOP memhen, meanwhile, htve introduced legisMkm whMi would have the state ge aheed with ms' jof segineflts ti the neb^ofk. The im|»asse reached new heights 'niesday, as the goV' emor's office called the GOP freeway program "fiscally irresfmnaible.'' That plan, introduced into (he Senate last weekend, caUed for |681 million of appnifxriations vMiich the senators said would fund construction on several "priority" freeway links. INCLUDED IN the Republican bilils are tegs between the Tri State TVUlway and the Wis- oonshi border; a segment of the centred Illinois e^qnesaMray numing from Springfield to Quincy; a north-south route between Reckford and Decatur with a link at interstate M; a Southeiti Illinois expressway ftuinkig through CafhOMMe; and other roads between Peoria and Quincy, Danville and Lawraiceville, Roefclord and East DUbuque, end the qtiad-citles and the western end of the East-West Tolliwiay. "Suffk5ient money is readily available for building these highways," the senators said in a statement, "including 1560 million in unspent funds from the highway bond issue." Walker's press secretary Norton Kay, after checking with the Department of Trans- pariatim, said the Senate GOP figures are wrong on two counts. FIRST, HE SAID, the roads (hey propose would cost 1922.1 million and not fUSL milUon as listed in their bills. Second, the transpoitBtion bond fund contains ody $381.6 million which has not already been appropriated, Kay said. The difference between (he $381.6 million available in the land and the 1922.1 million needed to pay for the GOP- protposed road buMding, Kay said, is $540.9 million. "To raise the additional $540.9 million the gas tax would have to be raised by 3.5 cents per gallon over the next four years. To pay for it in one year would require a 14- to 15«ent -aHgallon increase in the gas tax," Kay said. "The Reput^oan program is fiscally irresponsible. Ihe governor is o|iposed and will continue to oppose such a statewide gas tax increase." KAY DID NOT, however, in- idcate what Walker will propose as regards the supple- mentid freeway system. Rather, he said the deci^on might take another two weeks. However, Walker has said for at least a month that he would announce decisions on the freoAvay system "within two wedra." The Republicans also criticized Walker for his delay in making up his mind. "It is nearing six months now since Governor WaUcer was elected) yet he has done nothing to* ward conthMiing (he badly needed fk'eeway program ini­ tiated by the previous admin- is/inXkn," the senators said, "in fact, Governor Walker has stopped what had been started. "II tiie program was resumed today, we wouU stiU lose another entire building year in getting these highways built because bidding requirements would preclude work in ti^ construction season." TRANSPORTATION department officials said Walker still ootdd salvage half the construction season if he decides within, the next few weeks which segments of the system wHl be built. If he does hot, they said, it will be virtually impossible to complete any substantial wnk on the system during 1973, Panel Recommends Three Plans to Fund Education SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - A special conmiittee appointed by Schools Superbtendent Michael Bakalis to investigate new ways to fund education in Illinois says it could not agree on any one plan. Instead, the panel Tuesday recommended to Bakalis three possible funduig alternatives and suggested he pick one of them for forwardhig to the state legislature. The most popular of the three proposals was for full funding by the state of elementary and secondary education. A similar plan proposed earlier this year in the House, according to Speaker W. Robert Blair, R- Park Forest, would have required a doubling <rf the state income tax. That alternative drew support from seven of the 17 committee members. Five voted for a formula for state aid to individual school districts based on how heavily each district taxes itself to support education. And two members voted for a re-' vised version of the current formula, which divides s t a t e money among districts largely on the basis of how many students attend school. Three members of the panel apparenUy did not vote for any of the three alternatives. Each of the plans, the report said, is uitended to reduce the current ineqaulity of education- ar funding resulting from reliance on local property taxes as the primary means of educational support. The system means, the report said, "access to revenue for education in Illinois is primarily a function of the place of one's residence." In other words, a student In a poor district is likely to experience poorer educational opportunity than a student living in a wealthy district, the report said. That concept of funding recently has been challenged, and upheld, in federal courts. Bakalis's panel, however, said the situation represents not only a judicial problem but a "moral and education" one, as well. Despite their failure to agree on a funding alternative, the report said; the panel members unanimously recommended that the state take primary responsibility for educational funding. The members also suggested tlilt half the normal growth in state revenues and 60 per cent of Illinois' federal revenue sharing money be devoted to education over the next five years. The committee was headed by G. Alaii Hickrod, professor of educational admhiistration at Illinois State University, and included representatives of college education departments, local school districts, Bakalis' office and the Illinois Education Association. Area Elections: Upsets in Peoria Mom Kills Daughter To Break Husband's %U' PEORIA (UPI) - Mrs. Donna White thought her ex- husband held some sort of spell over her 4-year-old daughter, Renee Hall, so she stabbed the girl to death to break it, a Peoria detective told a coroner's jury Tuesday. PecMia Det. Sgt. Robert Walker, testifying at an inquest into the stabbing of the girl, said, "She (Mrs. White) thought that this spell was being cast by the husband and . . . she figured it would be best to do away with her." The girl's ^andparents, Mr. and Afrs. Joseph Hall, discovered the body April 11. The .couple, parents of Mrs. White, did not appear at the inquest, but submitted a statement saying that Mrs. White had been living with them and came to thejr room about 6 a. m. April 11 and told them she had killed her daughter. An autopsy report said the girl had been stabbed five times in the heart with a six-inch knife. Mrs. White, 35, has been charged with murder.
