Springfield Picture Ceiling on State Aid Saves State $460,000 By TOM LOFTUS Telegraph Correspondent Ceilings on public assistance payments in Illinois have saved (he state $4(50,000 during the first the current bicn- wove established two months of nium. Tho ceilings by the last General Assembly after a prolonged hassle between the House and Senate, which two conference committees could not settle. Moreover, Harold Swank, director of the newly - established Department of Public Welfare, told the Illinois Budgetary Commission, that, before June 30, 1965, he anticipates the ceilings to result in a total saving of about $12 million. Swank was making his first report to the commission as a code department director. Formerly, ic reported as executive secretary of the old Illinois Public Aid Commission. Turbulent Topics Ceilings on public aid, established on the insistence of the Republican dominated Senate first and the Republican majority in the House second, were the turbulent topics of legislative argument which bottled up other bills in both houses in the early part of the session. Democrats opposed the ceilings and that opposition was led by Gov. Otto Kerner. House Republicans differed only from Senate Republicans in the degree of limitation on aid payments. Finally when ceilings were established, it was against testimony given in committee hearings by IPAC representatives and some legisla tors from both sides of the aisle. No comment was made, however, by any former opponents of the ceilings (and some are members of the budgetary commission) when Swank made his report. Tim director also told the commission he was initialing an investigation into single - person cases on relief rolls. There are now 16,000 such cases on t h n rolls, he said, of which 11,400 arc in Chicago and 4,600 downstate. Some of these, Swank said, might be employable. Just how many his investigation will determine. Watching I'rolm Gov. Kerner and Department vhich legislation mented Judicial f Public Safety Director Joseph Ragon are watching an investigation into kickbacks from tow- ng service operators to state po- icemen in Cook, DuPage, Luke and Kane Counties. The kickbacks ran as high as to 50 per cent of the towing charge, the governor said, but did not outline any detail on specific dates, towing firms and most in- eresting of all, the names of the officers involved. Ragen said the practice appeared to have been in use for "at east 10 years." Ragen and Wiliam Morris, superintendent of state police, are directing the investigation.
