Recommended previously by he U. of I. bureau director was consolidation of the state's lower 6 counties (the committee's area if study) into three or four units .ind establishment of the office of county supervisor of assessments. These proposals, Allen said, are applicable throughout most of the state. Other steps suggested are: 1--Retention of tax liens by the (state) government for at least one year after the delinquency date of the last tax installment.. 2--Blanket foreclosure in equity of all liens that remain at the end of the one year period, with "oreclosure action directed against the land rather than against the owner. . 3--Foreclosure proceedings to vest absolute, fee-simple title in the state, free anad clear from all encumbrances, including interests of minors and other incompetents. 4--General sale to private buyers of tax title lands for not less than accumulated taxes, interests and costs. 5--Provision for two-year redemption period after sale. 6---Automatic purchase by the government of all properties not purchased by private buyers at the general sale.
