' In addition, the Association Ogilvie to ask for another road bond referendum SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie — in announcing a 1971 Illinois highway program, i-of $448 million Tuesday — said he would ask the upcoming legislature to authorize a n.o t h e T highway . bptitf referendum. : ! " Voters approved:; $2^ ;taiiiion in bonds in I960' fof "construction • of a 1 new supplemental freeway system in the state, but the-Illinois Supreme Court held ; 'the authorization unconstitutional earlier this year the debt was never incurred. '; . Ogilvie didn't disclose the amount of bonds he would seek, but said it would be "considerably less than $2 billion." .The $488 million road program was selected from'$567 million in recommended highway improvements engineers had blueprinted for 1971, Ogilvie said in a news conference. v He said his-1971 highway improvement effort would be the highest in the state's history and would exceed the 1970 program by $60.9 million. But the 1970 program exceeded the 1969 road spending plan of $348 million'by $227 million— which does not include $148 million pared from the. ; ,1970 program., by the . supreme court decision ^n the bond money. .-; • ._•••• First announcement'-pf road programs for an..upcoming year .are traditionally more ambitious than the .work".that can actually /be .done during a year. Budget considerations, inclement weather and other problems' make up the difference. In 1970 .the Ogilvie program had aimed at fulfilling $575.8 million In recommended road improvements, but by mid- December of this 1 year/ only $442 million of, highway .work was assured by contracts. Of the 1969 program of $348 million, only '$331' million actually was contracted for, leaving a difference in actual money spent between 1969 and 1970 of about $74 million. The 1970 program was inflated to a degree by the $148 million 4n bond money that was trimmed away, accounting for the smaller-than- usual increase in the 197JL program over the 1970. Ogilvie said the state undertook an "extremely .ambitious program in 1970 ...: the 1971 program will be even more ambitious." ' With/the bond money Ogilvie had hoped to build a statewide, system "of supplemental highways which would interconnect existing routes.: The new routes would be designed JEor limited access, v Y ••'- '•. .'• • ^'-.
