' It concerns the so-called Rockwell bill, recently passed by the House, 232 to 120. According to the Bureau of Reclamation, the agencv in charge of federal power projects, the Dill, as passed b the House, will increase the rates charged for electricity generated at government dams by from 14 to 49 per cent. The bill was introduced a yeai a*o by Hep. Robert F. Rockwell, Colorado Republican, as an amendment to the Reclamation law 01 1939. One mam purpose was to give Congress more control over deciding what projects should be .started and how carried out bmce i 1902. the secretary of Interior UPS had this authority. Rockwell also admitted, however, that anotner purpose was to mc-ease tne rates cnarged for puo- iic power. The idea was to make public power compete with tnat produced by private companies. This was to be done by three moves. First, by making govern- 'mem power projects pay bacK 'their cost of construction m a 'snorter period 01 ume. Second, D v requiring that a greater share 'oi the revenues from sale of government power be returned to the neasury. Third, by requiring that iht projects pay into the Treasury .interest money on the invested ' capital. A.S' soon as the Rockwell bill "was introduced, Rep. William Lexn- ke North Dakota Kepubhcan, put m ' a bill to do just tne opposite, liberalizing the conditions or puD- 'ic power financing. * Both bills went before the House !

It was about 80 °er cent Lemke bill and 20 per cent Rockwell bill. .It increased to 78 years the period m which a project might pay out. It cut the interest rate. These provisions , vi ere acceptable to Bureau of Reclamation. . . ;n No action was taken on the bill i last vear. But when Congress 'came "back this year, it got pnor- ! lt y. Late, in January-, the bill was The effect is that projects will hereafter have to pay out in this shorter period of time. They will therefore have to charge more for their power. Some projects may even be found uneconomic to build or operate on this basis. The Elliott amendment carried by a vote of 210 to 152. Republicans from east of the Mississippi voted for the amendment 149 to 20. Green Address lo Highlight GOP Lincoln Programs WASHINGTON.
