By Peg Bracken and Rod Lull States May Cut Federal Tax Slash n.v SAM DAWSON Al' KiiNlnotM News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-If you gel that tax cut next year that you've been hearing about for so long, who Is goipg to spend it—you 01 your stale and local governments? Congress may pass an Income lax cut for individuals and corporations this year or early nexl year. But the skeptics say Ihe $10 billion or so which Ihe federal government might thus free would just bo a silting duck for stale, county or local governments looking for more funds they can tap by raising their own lax rates. If so, Ihe end result could be that the taxpayer would end ]9(M owing just about as much as ever lo one or another tax collector. One of Ihe big arguments for a federal lax cut—beyond the nal- tax cut by it will free tl.V StANLKY MEISIJCH WASHINGTON (AP)-The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to blow away some of the haste thai contorts and confuses the picture of legislative reapporlionmenl In Iho 50 stales. On Nov. 1.2 the court will hear arguments in cases Involving the districting of legislatures In Virginia, Maryland, New York and Alabama. The court's decision—expected later in Ihe session—may loll the other stales and the other federal courts just what the Supreme Court expects them lo do. Although the Supreme Court, In a March 2G, J962, decision, said thai federal courts have jurisdiction in cases where citizens complain about legislative districting, Ihe court lefl a number of questions unanswered. It may answer Ihern now. Or, if it doesn't answer the ural appeal of any nny agency—is that more spending money. does not offer sufficient benefits and wants lo make medical assistance available lo all persons who retire and receive social security payments. The AMA survey covered ii'l jur-l isdictions — the !>0 slates, Ihe District of Columbia and the territories of Guam and Puerto Rico. It showed: Old age assistance programs under Kerr-Mills are in effect in all 54 jurisdictions. This provision the federal government to match slate, funds used exclusively for payments for medical services up to a combined total of $12 a month above the previous $(io monthly maximum. A total of <12 jurisdictions have enacted legislation to provide medical assistance for the agtlcl for near indigent persons not on old age assistance rolls. These programs are in effect in 34 jurisdictions, five other jurisdictions have adopted programs effective at later dales and three others have approved programs without appropriating funds. The 12 states which have not adopted them are Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Mon tana, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas and Wisconsin.

That, in turn, would add a lot nore people to the income tax rolls, and the U.S. Treasury would collect more, even at the reduced rales. But the state and local governments are searching lor more revenue to meet the needs of growing communities and to furnish still more services that people like to have (even if they don't enjoy paying for them). If $10 billion is freed by the federal tux collector, it'll be mighty templing to other revenue seekers. It is widely conceded that stale and local lax rates will rise, or new taxes be devised. These will come out of your pocket, leaving just that much less to be spent at the store. Will this nullify Ihe boost to 'the economic growth rafe that a federal tax cut is supposed to promise? Waller W. Heller says that isn't necessarily so. The chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers argues this way: "The boost to over-all demand is the same, whether the federal tax savings are spent directly by taxpayers or indirectly, at their command, by their slate and local governments." He contends' Dial the end result would be "higher output, more jobs and a greater legacy of real wealth—houses, schools, productive plant and equipment." Heller adds that federal tax cut or no, the increase nexl year in stale and local tax revenues is expected to approach $3 billion. questions in these four cases, the court likely will—if and when it takes up a case involving the Oklahoma Legislature. Last July 17. a three-judge federal court in Oklahoma City ordered the rcapportionmenl of both houses of the Oklahoma Legislature on the basis of population tmd nothing else. Oklahoma Ally. Gen. Charles Ncsbitt said he would appeal to the Supreme Court. The Oklahoma decision is significant because it seems to answer two questions most often asked about reapportionment: 1. Is the "little federal system" legal? These are legislatures which are like Congress in that they have one house apportioned by population and the other by geographic units. 2. If a house is apportioned by population, how strictly does it have to follow population? Do th- er factors—geography, tradition, area—have a right to be considered? Reports from Associated Press bureaus throughout the country show that 31 state legislatures, under the prodding of the court's 19G2 decision and the drive by the cities and suburbs, have taken some step.s to redistrict since the I960 census. But, in the eyes of the critics, these often have been no more than token steps. AP bureau reports show that federal suits demanding fair apportionment have been filed in 29 states, 16 of them in states where the legislatures have taken steps. So far, the survey shows, there has been little change in the balance of power.
