Term " IVI III , ,. "j-,,., 1™. Smith of '\ Lubboclf yloday, announced, his ',, candidacy',for a'second term''as • '- .Lieutenant Governors He 'call> ed for "an,.intelligent and de, termined effort" to trim., nonessentials from the state's 1966-66 budget. "Texas is spending $3.2 ,bil- Kon this biennium^ and the pressure will be on the legislature to go much higher next session," Lt, Gov. Smith said. "If this happens, it will mean a tax increase.. This we should make all reasonable efforts to avoid." He cited President Johnson's , economy drive at ,<the federal , level as a good example for state and local governments to , follow. "A dollar saved at the statehouse or courthouse adds just as inuch to the private economy as One saved at' Washington," hfe said. Smith said he realized that necessary functions of state government must be adequately financed. A rapidly increasing population, he noted, places a growing load on tooth state and local governments, particularly for education. He suggested, as examples, three' areas in 'which legislation might help aorve critical problems,' without adding' perceptibly to the state's tax burden: 1. A review of state laws relating to municipalities, aimed at bringing old laws up to date* and possibly opening up additoinal revenue sources for hard-pressed city governments 2! Cooperation of the Texas Employment Commission, Texas Youth Council, and possibly other state agencies .with local authorities and private citizens in creating special employment opportunities for young people. He cited the successful "Youth, Inc." program at Wichita Falls as a sample of what can be done by Interested businessmen to solve a' community problem. 3." Passage of legislation to permit the formation of multi- county junior colleges, and other moves to make it simpler for eligible "counties to use this means of alleviating the higher education crisis. "We are rightfully concerned with 'the high "standards and quaMby programs at state senior colleges and- universities," Smith said, "but-let's not forget the 80 to 90 per. cent of our young people who for one reason ? or another will not be abl& to get a college degree." tHE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, January 30, 1964 , Preston Smith * * * Smith commented on responses to a questionnaire he sent to 'thousands of Texas citizens, asking them .what issues they considered most< pressing at the state and local levels. The most frequently mentioned areas were: water, local control, fiscal responsibility, industrial development, education and employment. The lieutenant governor recalled that the 1963 session of the legislature was notable for harmonious relations between the two houses and with Gov. John Coimally's office. He said he expected this healthy relationship to continue. Smith served six years in the House and six in the Senate before winning the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor in 1962 and defeating the Kin of City Killed . attack' as'^he .was car ttook*. the -'life of bick , Duvall '''of Mangum, brother-in-law of Bryan Denley, Monday, Jan. 20, and Mrs. Duvall, his sister, died ,of 'in r juries 'received in the \Vrecfi that followed. •Mr. Duvall was 86, his wife 81.
