FRIDAY, MARCH 18, IMt BLYTHEVtLUB '(AUK.)' COURIER KEW8 IE NATION TODAY uture for Rent Controls Vague Is Present Law Wears Deadline Lawmakers Lack Accord By Jama M»r!ow WASHINGTON, March 18. (/Pi— This U> «n ABO on rent control, inging up to date what's happened so IK. Nothing final has happened. I The present law controlling rents ends March 31. unless Congress •sses a new one. It hasn't yet. It's pretty sure to. The only notion up to now has been this: The House passed a rciv II; the Senate Is getting ready to vote on one. maybe next weeK. From what'e been said and don* both houses, these points stand it: Congress seems to think we've •ached the point where tile states. I L least, ought to be free lo handle icir own rent problems, If they ant to. 2. congress seems to think timta ew law should not continue fed- al rent controls for more than aether 15 months, or until June ), 1950. (President Truman's aides anted controls for another 24 lonths). Here are * few high spots in the 111 passed by the House, and the ifierent kind of bill being readied n the Senate. But remember: n both houses •hid up passing different bills, there ,'111 be no new law until both agree n a single bill. They're expected to House, Senate Divided That means House and Senate nembers will have to meet, compromise on their two bills, Iron out Ilifferences. and finally agree. That's Hby !t '* too soon to say exactly Ktfrtat the new law will be. The House bill. . . . The big »int Is called the "home rule" fea- ure. If it becomes law. it would ncan this: Any state, city or county could hiow off all federal controls any ime it wished even though that .late, city or county had no rent lontrols of its own. In short, It ;ould end rent control for itself. The bill which the senate is preparing is different, It wouldn't per- i>it dropping of all controls. The Senate bill. ... all fedenil controls would end in any state whose governor merely announced his state had "adequate" controls of its own. ' He woulln't have to prove his controls were "adequate." Merely say- »g they were would he enough. Frown on Home Rule Idea Senators told reporters they think tiie House "home rule" idea is worse than useles. So it seems a long way from becoming law. (At present only five .states— I Connecticut, Illinois, New York, {Maryland and Virginia-have rent •ntrol laws of their own to take ?lie place of a. federal law after • March 31. I {But the Maryland law ends June II and the Illinois and New York June 30.) I This dropping of federal rent I controls—although under different circumstances—Is the higli point in both House and Senate bills. But both bills would allow reni Increase, although in differen' ways: Senate. ... let landlords ralsi rents 5 per cent on Oct. 31. 191' and another 5 per cent on March 31 1050, provided that— The total increase the landlor jot did not exceed 15 percent abov what he got lor his place on Jun 30, 1947. Po a landlord who already ha raised rents IS percent since Jui 30, 19*7. under the Senate bi couldn't get another Increase. House. . . . wipe out that pa of fhe present law which lets land lords, through agreements with tenants, raise rents 15 per cent, although such agreements already in cffi-ct wouldn't be disturbed. But—the tail) would let the government's rent bass, the housing expediter, allow a landlord to raise rents, where practicable, so they'd get a "reasonable return" on tlieji property. Senators thought that part of the House hill wouldn't work. They don't want it in tlielr bill. >6 War-Orphaned Berman Children Brought lo U. S. NEW YORK, Murch 18.
