FLY YOUR FLAG JULY 4th GODWIN'S \ \\ 15. liroadwuy Alton's Commercial Stationer Kerner's Program: Most All Passes liy DON CHAMIlflHLAW Tclcgrnph Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) Most of the administration program sought by Gov. Otto Kerner was enacted Into law by the 73rd Illinois General Assembly, although legislators spent almost the first four months of the session in bitter, partisan debate on question of whether there should be ceilings on public assistance payments. Most notably, on April 24, t h e ;ovcrnor proposed a record high budget totaling almost $3.9 billion, but he prefaced his announcement with the statement that his administration would not propose any new or increased taxes. And In this lie succeeds. (A possible exception to the no new-or-increased taxes could be an Increase in the Stale cigarette tax from four cents to five cents a package, given final legislative approval last night. It would raise $13 million annually, half of it to go for State park expansion and the other half to General Revenue. However, it still has to clear the Governor's approval.) However, claims he was successful in avoiding new or Increased taxes may face criticism thai he accomplished It through a $(!0 million public works construction program mostly for build ings for schools and state institutions, and financed through bond issues to bo retired in the future by rentals. Not In IliHlfrct Since his budget message, the legislature has passed several bills ailing for expenditures not included in it. For Instance, al- I hough no provision Was made for an increase in state aid grant per pupil, both Houses passed a bill increasing that from $252 annually to $297 at an estimated nddi- tonal cost of $32 million. Whether the Governor will sign that bill or not, is still an unanswered question. There arc other appropriations passed by the leg- islalure in lesser amounts, none of which has been included in the new budget, and while there are Indications he will sign some, there are also sure signs he will veto others. After throe conference committees had failed to resolve differences between the House and Senate on ceilings for public aid, the two branches finally agreed and Kerner signed the agreed bill al- though he pointed out that he was still against the principle of ceilings. nickering I'avetl Way The bickering on lie public aid issue and a sidebar development which showed how difficult il was for the Governor to get accurate statistics and data from the Illinois Public Aid Commission, paved the way for legislation which established a now code department. This now unit, tho Department of Public Assistance, will replace the IPAC on July 1, a project the governor approved two years ago and supports nosv. Karly in Ilio session, the legislature also passed at the Governor's request, a scries of so-called "loophole plugging" bills in the sales and us>? tax laws. The additional income derived from these laws was figured in the Governor's estimate of a $330 million increase of total revenues from sales and use taxes, from the broadened base of these two taxes, from a hotel-motel tax and from retention of the cigarette tax. Loopholes Plugged Governor Kerner made no secret of the fact that these loophole plugging laws helped his financial position greatly and strengthened his announcement that no new or additional taxes would be needed. In another area which frequently claims much of the governor's attention, he points to three administration-supported bills which affect the Department of Mental Health.

We Reserve the Right To Limit trnt ion-sponsored hill for the revision of the Mental Health Code. Tis re-defines provisions f o r care, treatment and detention of patients and will permit out-p a t i e n t treatment in new out-patient clinics to be built with funds approved in the I960 bond Issue vote in the general election. Second is the separation of certain units in Mental Health into a new code department. The new agency is the Department of Children and Family Services and incorporates facilities and services formerly administered by Mental Health as well as several independent commissions. Third is the law passed when establishes a parent contribution procedure for the support of mentally ill in institutions other than stale institutions. This enables parents to plnce a mentally ill :hild in a private institution for which the state will pay part of the cost. Moreover, Dr. Francis Gerty, Ihe retiring director of Mental Health, sought a big increase in budgetary allotments for the department and eventually, the legislature passed bills to provide for almost $40 million more. The money is to be used not only for expansion of existing patient care programs but also in the field of research. Still another area in which Kerner feels his administration has made a big achievement is in education. Several bills which provide about $56 million more for various state schools have passed, all with the administration support. Chief among these, perhaps, is the bill which appropriates $6,750,000 to the superintendent of public instruction to assist and encourage local school districts to develop services for gifted children. One other major administration accomplishment is claimed in an amendment to broaden the Fair Employment Practices Commission jurisdiction to include governmental units and labor unions. This amendment was prompted by a grievance filed against the Chicago Board of Education but the commission later found it has no jurisdiction to process that grievance under the original law enacted in 1961. Now, all state and municipa governments, boards of education township boards, county boards sanitary districts, airport authorities, etc., are covered by the FEPC.
