DECATUP. HERALD SUNDAY. MAY 27. 1928. DECATUR HERALD COUNTIES STILL HAVE CHANGE AT GAS TAX MONEY Decatur Representatives Believe Matter Will Be Settled MEET NEXT THURSDAY Counties of the state still may get their share of the $6 300,000 of gasoline tax money lying in the Illinois treasury and use It this s u m m e r foi road constuictlon. Rep. W. C. Chynoweth and State Sormtoi Jesse 1 Dock on their return Friday Iron' the special session of the sta'' 1 legislature said hopei of d l s t i i b u t l n ; ; the Illegally collected tax piocccdi aren't dead. i There Is every llklihood t h a t Iho distribution measure, discarded b.v Senate at the special session will be revived, perhaps In amended form tvhen the Legislative leeonvencs on | Gov. Small's call, the Decatur mei. ·tatcd. "Ths stats senators," explained Rep. Chynoweth, "are uneasy about the public reaction to t h e i r sending t h e d l s t i l b u t l o n bill to the scrap heap. Toward the last of the spccml session, there was a strong icgrc 1 , especially among semitois runnmi, for re-election, that the bill luul been discarded. It In known that tin- counties feel they are entitled to UK money, and want It." Upstate Opposition. Th« scrapping of the. d h t t i b u t l c m bill was ascribed by Rep. Chynoweth to upstate opposition to halt the 10,300,000 golnf; to the state highway department and the- other half to the counties. Cook county, under this arrangcemnt, would have 10- colved 43 per cent, of the shaie going to counties, or nearly $1,500,000 The apportioning among the counties would have been In t a t i o witti liconso lees contributed by thu counties. Chicago senators Cound no objection to the system oC appoi t i n n - ing among counties, If the e n l n e J8.300.000 was to bo BO appot tionc'l They felt the counties had paid tho tax levy on gasoline and should get · II of It back. $40,000 or $30,000 Macon county's portion of tax money, under tho "50-50" division between the Btato and the counties, would hava been around $-10,000. Wero the state to b« deprived of any ·hare, Macon county would get 180,000, ! State Senator Deck laid Indications point to enactment by the Legislature finally of a measure distributing the $0,300,000 as originally Intended. This would bo half to tho state and half to the counties. Down- ·tate senators and representatives favor this division, because it would help tho etato highway department finish Its nouthorn Illinois program ef road-building and at the same tJma aid country link building. Reconvene Thursday Ths Legislature Is expected to re- eonvons next Thursday. The Senate adjourned to that date. However, tho Houso adjourned sine die. A situation of illegal dlabandmcnt therefore resulted, since neither branch ot the Legislature can adjourn for more than two days without tho consent of the other. Tho iitate constitution provides that, In a circumstance whore tho branches have split on adjournment, tho gov- f rnor may untangle the snarl by ordering both to reconvene The gov- ·inor has Indicated he will Issuo a eoll for next Thursday when the Senate re-convene') Senator Deck iiald » mlsunder- · Undlng existed between tho Senate nod House, at the session that end- id Thursday, about tho tax money distributing measure. Tho House adjourned, he stated, lu tho belief that j tho Senate would do nothing w i t h the measure. Tho Senate, Interpreting tho House resolution for adjournment as meaning that the lower branch wouldn't act on the measure, forthwith dropped It. The misunderstanding Is expected to be Ironed out when both branches reassemble. (Suits Await Settlement Favorable action by the Legislature and tho governor on distribution, however, will not mean that tho counties will receive their nharcs of the money immediately. Flist there must bo settlement in c o u i t of claims brought by oil companies, Including Standard, Roxann · ml othcis, for participation In the division. The oil companies have backed t h e i r cUlm.i with Injunction milts. ft Is believed that the releasing of tho money from tho state treasury by means of a distributing appropriation, would facilitate the clearing up of tho litigation brought by tho oil concerns.
