State Senate Summary By State Senator Wayne Keith Recently I have received a number of petitions encouraging the State Department of Agriculture to continue the meat inspection program in Iowa. I support the continuation of state meat inspection over federal inspection.. We have only been in this business for two years and I think it would be a mistake to change at this particular time. There is evidence that the federal government may in the next couple of year, be willing to increase federal funds for state meat inspection. Therefore, I believe we ought to continue to fund our present meat inspection program for the next two years. Last week the Senate acted upon some of the governor's economy measures which are necessary. Senate File 428, the Court Reform bill, passed the Senate on Wednesday. This bill does away with the lower court system and places all violations under the jurisdiction of the district court system. I had no qualms about doing away with Justice of Peace courts but I did feel ,we do have some fine municipal, police and mayor's courts in our state that could continue to perform valuable service in the communities in which they serve. While I did not support this bill, I am not opposed to some court reform. I do feel that maybe we went too far, too fast, under this recommendation. Only time will tell whether this bill will improve justice over our present system and how expensive this move may be to the citizens of our state. We also spent considerable time on Senate File 335, a bill to require higher bail for persons accused of violent crimes. So far as I am concerned, we spent far more time on this bill than it justified. We spent more than one day in deliberation on this bill. When the final vote came it only received twenty-three of the twenty-six needed votes for passage. Another one of the governor's economy committee bills brought before the Senate was an act relating to the reorganization of the Liquor Control commission. This bill was not completed and was carried over into this week. I believe there could be improvement in handling this large industry within our state and I hope to be able to support the bill. A great deal has been said about property tax relief and school aid as they have been considered by the Senate and House Ways and Means committees. I am sure there are those who wonder what is being done about those properties that are not on the tax rolls. I can say that bills are being drafted and the Ways and Means committee will be considering this issue in the very near future. Some of you may be wondering what is happening to the personal property tax issue. That issue also will be considered very soon by the Ways and' Means committee and I am hopeful that these issues will be voted out of committee and considered by each body of the legislature.
