Lacked Enough Votes Berman's bill, an "absolute shield," was defeated 21-18 with 30 votes needed, and Porter's bill, which would have lifted the privilege in some court caseg, was rejected 22-15. In committee action Friday, the House Executive Committee okayed bills which would allow legMators and other state officials to take pay hikes without voting for them; to require a neighborhood referendum before construction of low - income 'housing could start in Chicago; land to aillow the attorney general to empanel statewide grand juries. The House Appropriations Cammitiiee cut in half a Senate- passed plan for full funding of state pension programs and aro- proved a small increase in the budget of the state fair agency. And the Senate Appropriations panel, meeting late Friday night, approved on 'a party-' line vote a Republican plan to give all state employes a $35-a- month pay raise. Recommends Raises The plian to change the method of raising public officials' pay would establish a commission to recommend raises. Such recommendations would automatically take efifect unless the legislators vetoed them — in effect allowing the lawmakers to avoid the current embarrassing necessity cf voting their own raises. A bill to fund the pay commission sailed through the House Appropriations' Committee on a voice vote literally before the sponsor could take a seait in the witness chair. The statewide grand juries and neighborhood referendum bills, however, are marked for controversy on the floor.
