With his schedule of appearances at the Illinois Slate Fair, which continues until Aug. 18, he may not have too much time to read bills this week, but indications are ho will dispose of another 100 or so. Among the more publicized bills still to be reviewed by the governor are those which would provide: A raise in legislators' annual salaries from $6,000 to $9,000, but only if voters approve a Blue Ballot amendment to the stale constitution which would establish annual legislative sessions. An increase in stale aid per pupil to $297 maximum a school year. , An increase in minimum salaries for downslate policemen and firemen. A 15-member commission lo study Ihe use of lax money for purchases on conlraceptive devices which would be distributed in any public aid program. Legislators acknowledged much of their mai lin Ihe session concerned one, Iwo or all these. Didn't Need Signature The Blue Ballol proposal for annual sessions passed by the House, where it was introduced by Slate Rep. Paul Elward, D-Chicago, and Ihen was given Senate ap proval laler. Since Ihis measure was a joint resolution, it does not need the governor's signature. But even if the governor signs the bill raising legislators pay, and if voters do not approve annual legislalive sessions, Ihen Ihe pay raise can nol be given. Thai's because it is contingent upon the annual sessions approval by voters. The bill to hike state, aid has the support of educational associations throughoul Ihe state. Presently, the state aid maximum for each pupil for a school year is ?252. Not in Budget This increase is not in Gov. Ker ner's school appropriations in his budget, and he has said again and again, lhat he will keep his budget in balance with no new taxes, come whatever. There are indications which lead to Ihe conclusion the governor will veto both the legislators pay and the state aid increase bills. However, he himself has* had no recent comment. He told a press conference he would make his mind up only after he read the final form of both bills. Spokesmen for policemen and firemens associations are still op- lirnislic that the governor will Coroner Dr. C. C. Kane reported. Madison and St. Clair counties both entered the case when authorities learned the murder occurred on a lonely road behind the racetrack and the body was found in the trunk of Ward's car in St. Clair County. sign their pay hike bills. They visited him several weeks ago, accompanied by Reuben G. Sodev strom, president of Ihe Illinois Federation of Labor. Repeated Opinion After their conference, (hey said they Ihoughl the governor would approve their legislation and mow recently, they repeated that opinion. It may well be that Gov. Kcrncr will do just that loo. The 15-membcr commission which will be named lo sludy use of tax money to buy contracep live devices for distribution to re clpients of public aid, was actually a compromise bit of legislation. This commission was established by House amendment lo Ihe controversial Senate bill, introduced by Sen. Morgan Finley, D-Chicago would have prohibited distribulion of such devices lo persons on public aid, except to marriec women living with their husbands and then, only if they requeslec such. Alined at Miircinont Finley's bill, you may remember, was aimed against Ihe birth control policy of the then chairman o fthe former Illinois Public Aid Commission, Arnold Mare- monl. Maremont wanled lo make such contraceptive devices available to any woman on public aid rolls Finley, a Catholic and a neighbor of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley gol his bill Ihrough Ihe Senale bul ran into opposition in the House, principally from House Speaker John Lewis who sup ported Maremont's policy. It is considered quite likely the governor will approve this bil since the reporl of Ihe commis sion, which is lo be made no lalei lhan March 1, 1965, is lo be the basis for legislation that will be considered in the next session o: the General Assembly.
