March 16—W)— The House-passed plan lor "local option" on rent control got « cool reception today from Senators who are directing Senate work o new rent law. This "home rule" plan would allow any state, county or towu to set up its own controls or drop them entirely. Over administration objections the House udded it yesterday to its bill to continne rent controls fo 15 months after March 31. Then th House passed the bill. Senator Sjrftrkman (D-Ala). chair man of » Senate Banking Com mittee tussling with rent control told reportsrs that local optio "seems to me pretty well gut th bill." And Chairman Waybank (D SO of the dill banking commute said he thought it would result 1 confusion aivd pandemonium." The Banking Committee hopes I have a bill ready for Senate actio by Monday. After the Senate act the Senate and House will ha\ ft agree on a single bill. Whatever new law Is finally pa sed—presuming one is enacted— probably will be a compromise of differing Senate and House bills. It already Is obvious that any new law will be considerably short of what President Truman asked. He asked for a 24-month extension of strong federal controls plus several provisions—which the House would not approve- to strengthen the hand of Housing Expediter Tighe Woods.
