George Nowotny of Fort Smith, the Republican leader in the Mouse, said Wednesday he was opposed to Gov, Winthrop Rockefeller's proposed tax increase package to finance pris* on reform, Nowotny's announcement before the Arkansas Legislative Council appeared to have jolted the administratitn's hopes for financing prison programs, Members of the council, who are all Democratis except one, greeted Nowotny's statement with hearty applause. Nowotny said he was not opposed to prison reform. He described the penitentiary as "a terrible place" but said the state had to establish priorities on its low revenue potential. He said if the government must be austere, then the austerity should be applied to those people who had "kicked society," meaning prison inmates. Nowotny said any money that is raised should go first to solve the problems of public schools, the state-supported colleges and universities and welfare recipients. He said the prison programs advocated by the governor were needed, but he said they should wait until the state is In more "flourishing" times. Rockefeller, plainly irritated over Nowotny's remarks, said he was still optimistic that the prison financing program would be passed. "I regret that he didn't see fit to discuss it with me at all," Rockefeller said. He said the legislature already had committed itself to prison reform and that now it should raise the money for it. If the prison system is forced to revert to its old condition, the governor said, "It will be a sad commentary on the legislative processes of the state." The administration made one major change in the prison package Wednesday. Orginally, it had proposed a 20 per cent excise tax on cigars, but lowered that to 15 per cent on the wholesale price. Altogether, the original tax package would have produced slightly more than $1.8 million: $400,000 from the real estate transfer tax; $1.1 million from cigar tax; $200,000 from the unclaimed property act and $150,000 from the application of the sales tax on purchases by banks and savings and loan associations.
