Several others, however, indicated their support for a DOT was predicated, if not on anti- highway feelings, at least upon coolness toward Iowa Highway Commission practices. Rep.-elect Scott Newhard, D- Anamosa, said creation of the DOT would "provide alternatives to transportation needs, as opposed to the monopoly the Highway Commission has in this area." Answering a related question as to whether he would support increased appropriations for the Highway Commission and returning sales tax revenue to the Road Use Tax Fund, Sen. Gene Kennedy, D-Dubuque, . said he would support such a move "only if they prove to me that they recognize the needs of of enlarging the commission's northeast Iowa and intend to administrative appropriation, change their method of deter- Many indicated indecision on mining highway needs." both issues. And Rep.-elect Dennis Butler, R-Council Bluffs, said one of the reasons he supports the DOT concept is that he feels the Highway Commission "has been intent on representing the interests of the automobile rather than the people of the state." Sen. Minnette Doderer, D- Iowa City, said she would support a Department of Transportation "only if we can thereby emphasize public transportation more, rather than figuring out a way to allow everyone in the state to drive their own cars on bigger and faster highways." Lawmakers answering the questionnaire divided almost 50-50 on the issue of returning sales tax revenue to the Highway Commission and gave a resounding "no" to the question Her fellow party member, Sen.-elect William Gluba, D-Davenport, declared, however, that "we need an over-all coordinated system to meet all the transportation needs of the people of Iowa." And Rep. Joan Lipsky, R-Cedar Rapids, said such an agency is especially needed "to help develop commercial aviation for Iowa. The absence of such a department has probably contributed to the alarming decline in railroad service in the state." Leading the chorus of those who aren't convinced a DOT is- needed was Rep. Richard Welden, R-Iowa Falls. •'We need ove r-all transportation planning, but we can get that cheaper and faster without going to a DOT," Welden declared. He was the author in the last session of a resolution, proposed as an alternative to a DOT bill, to set up a select committee to formulate a comprehensive state transportation plan and policy. Both the bill and the resolution were shelved In favor of continued study of the DOT by a legislative committee. Welden didn't say whether he would introduce the resolution again. One veteran Republican legislator who asked not to be quoted by name turned thumbs down on the DOT because he is unhappy with previous governmental reorganization efforts. "Let's clean up some of the reorganization mess we presently have before starting another," he said. He was joined by Rep. Richard Norpel, D-Bellevue, who said reorganizations in the past "cost us more money." He cited the Iowa Liquor Control Commission, reorganized into the Iowa Beer and Liquor Control Department, as an example he said has been expensive for the taxpayers. Rep.-elect Adrian Brinck, D- West Point, expressed doubt that a state DOT could do ,much about mass transit problems. "Local government knows and should be able to decide on their local mass transport needs," Brinck said. But Rep.-elect Willis Junker, R-Sioux City, urged looking far into the future in considering whether a DOT is needed in Iowa. "We must begin to plan for the distant future when mass transportation will be the only viable means of avoiding in Iowa the serious problems now faced by the more populous states," he said.
