THE PROPOSED hike in local funding, according to Acting EPA Director Jack Marco, would be from the current 20 per cent of the total cost to 25 per cent. Me said the change is needed because of alterations in the federal aid program for such projects. The preliminary report, which also contains an outline of other changes in water pollution regulations, has been slated for a week of public hearings, starling today in Springfield. Marco said the federal government published new pollution grant regulations March 1. providing that all federal grants must be for 75 per cent of eligible construction costs. In the past, the federal share has been 55 per cent, the state has provided 25 per cent and the local government has kicked in the remaining 20 per cent. THE CHANGE does not mean, however, that more federal antipollution dollars will be coming to Illinois, Marco said. In fact, he said, because of presidential impoundment of funds, Illinois likely will get far less than had been expected during fiscal 1074 — some $124 million instead of $314 million. "They changed the standards but they didn't give us any more bucks." Marco said. The combination of a rules change and dollar cut means that available federal funds will cover far fewer projects, although they will pay for a higher percentage of the costs of the projects they do cover. As a result, the .report says, "the state is in the process of reassessing its entire policy and approach with respect to state grants." ONE CONCLUSION that has been reached, the report says, is, "No state grant funds Will bo provided to municipalities receiving 75 per cent grants from the federal government." Instead, Marco explained, the available state money will cover projects which are ready to go but which cannot get federal money. "How the state grant funds can best complete the state strategy is still under discussion in the agency," the report says. But Marco said the current plan is to provide 75 per cent stale grants to nonfeder- ally funded projects. He admitted such an approach would require a 5 per cent hike in the local share of funding, whether the particular project was receiving state cr federal money. MARCO SAID the EPA is seeking in 1974 appropriation of $]97 million in state bond funds to help build sewage- treatment plants, Of that amount, $76 million would bo a carryover of money appropriated but not spent during fiscal 1973 due to the slowness of the federal government in publishing new regulations. He also said that, since come municipalities have lost a year's construction time due to funding hold ups, "the readiness of a project to proceed" will be an "important factor" in deciding allocations of state grants in the future. Marco said the porgram is a "preliminary plan, it represents our best thinking at this point but, if the hearings convince us something else will work better, we'll change our minds." HE SAID anyone who wants to testify at the hearings will bo allowed to do so, providing they notify an EPA office in Springfield, Chicago or Marion a day ahead of time. Hearings after today's here are scheduled for Wednesday at 9 a.m. in the Southern Illinois University Student Center ballroom, Carbondale; and Friday at 9 a.m. in the Field Museum lecture hall, Chicago. House Approves Formula for Equalized School Aid SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The Illinois House has approved a school funding formula designed to guarantee that school districts with equal taxing rates get the same amount of money, regardless of their relative wealth or poverty. If approved by the Senate and signed into law in its present form, the bill would provide an increase of some $180 million ih school funding for the coming year. That is nearly $50 million more than the increase proposed by Gov. Daniel Walker in his budget. The plan, approved Saturday on a vote of 131-2, was sponsored by Rep. Gene Hoffman, R-Elmhurst, Who also chairs the Legislative School Problems Commission. "A Giant Step" Hoffman said the bill is "A. giant step toward the state assuming primary responsibility for financing public education... It is a plan that would equalize the opportunities for all students to be educated at a quality expenditure level, regardless of where they live or what type of district they happen to live in." The plan is geared to the assessed valuation of property within each school district — the figure on which tax revenues depend. It would guarantee •that feir any district with less than set minimumis of taxable property, the state will make up the difference and, thereby, equalize the amount of revenue among districts. The muiomuim guaranteed) level of assessed valuation per student would be $42,000 in unit districts; $64,615 in elementary districts; and $120,000 in secondary districts. The plan also would set maximum permissible tax rates for each type of district — $3 per $100 of assessed valuation in unit districts; $1.95 in elementary districts; and $1.05 in secondary districts. A Sample Case As an example of the plan's operation, Hoflfman cited the cose of a unit district with a tax rate of $2.80 and an assessed valuation per pupil of $14,000. Tax revenue would amount to $392. But, since the district was $28,000 per pupil below the guaranteed assessment level, the state would contribute the revenue which would have come from taxation on that amount — or $784. That would give the district, and all others with the same tax rate, $1,176 per pupil. Districts with tax rates currently above the maximums would be required to lower their taxes to within the limits, Hoffman said, although they could exceed the maximum by 15 per cent or less through referendum. No district would be required to take a cut in state aid, even though the new system indicated such a cut, he said. Assembly Crisis: Too Much To Do in Short Time SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The Illinois House today began the last four weeks of the spring session up against its annual crisis—too much work and too little time before June 30. And many of the bills still up for consideration are the most important because sponsors can —and regularly do—put controversial measures on the postponement calendar. Talk, But No Vote This means the House will often devote an hour or more to a bill but take no final vote on the proposal if the sponsor can't muster enough support. He then asks for postponed consideration, a tactic that fre quently serves only to drag out a bill's death. Often, in fact, House mem bers boo openly when a bill they think is obviously beaten is put on postponed consideration. But they don't object too strenuously because they too may ask for the same privilege some day. Here are some of the bills that already have been discussed at length in the House but which were not voted on and which worked their way to postponed consideration —A foill to fill legislative vacancies. This issue has been bouncing around the legislature for several years but has al­ ways bogged down in partisan! —A bill creating a fund into politics. . .... I which home builders must pay —A Democratic bill to create so shoddy construction can be an elected state board of edu. ... cation. The House already has remedied out of the fund-not of the chief task still ahead- deciding how to spend the bulk of the state's $7 billion. The Departments of Transportation, Mental Health, Welfare and passed a GOP measure under out of the home buyer's pocket, corrections all have big and which the governor would appoint a 17-member board. — A bill to force utilities to make no mention of the high cost of advertising when they go before the Illinois Commerce Commission seeking rate increases. In all, there are some 40 House bills on postponed con sideration. Besides these, there are other key measures still pending, including a no-fault auto insurance Ibill and several to regulate abortion. None of this makes mention controversial budgets. Other Decisions There are also major decisions yet to be made abut higher and lower education costs in fiscal 1974—not to mention what will be done with all those Seriate bills.

Year-Round Racing Okayed SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The Illinois House has given its approval to year-round horse racing. The measure was approved, 91-4, after Rep. Horace L. Calvo, D-Granite City, told the House Saturday his bill would help bolster the sagging racing industry in Illinois. "This will give some help, some impetus, to the racing industry in this state," Galvo said. "Winter racing has done very well throughout the country." Illinois law now permits racing only in spring, summer and fall. The bill as originally proposed also would have permitted Sunday racing, a provision Calvo dropped when the bill was heard in committee because so many House members were against it. The original version of the bill also would have changed the formula by which the state taxes racetrack betting. But that provision, too, was dropped before the measure came to a vote. Pay Hike Measure Killed SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The Illinois House has Killed a bill which would have forced all counties except Cook to raise by $3,500 the salaries of their clerks, coroners, treasurers, circuit clerks, recorders and auditors. The bill would have retained the present system which officials of the large counties are guaranteed the highest pay. Vote Land Trust Disclosure SPRINGFIELD (UPI) — A bill requiring disclosure of the names of persons holding interests in secret land trusts when those trusts seek governmental favors was passed Saturday in the Illinois House. Sponsor Rep. John E. Porter, R-Evanston, said the measure would allow the public to spot possible conflicts of interest in zoning and other governmental land dealings. The vote was 92-17. Bill Would Cut License Fee SPRINGFIELD (UPI) — The Illinois House has approved a bill which would lower from $8 to $4 the fee senior citizens pay for a drivers' license. The bill passed and went to the Senate Saturday as the chamber dealt with more than 90 pieces of legislation Holiday to Honor Suffragette SPRINGFIELD (UPI) — If the Senate and Gov. Daniel Walker agree with the House, suffragette Susan B. Anthony's birthday-Feb. 15— will become a commemorative holiday in Illinois. Tiie House Saturday passed a bill seeking that designation after its sponsor, Rep. Susan Catania, R-Chieago, explained a commemorative holiday does not force closing of schools, banks or public offices. »
