Three Measures For Legislature Are Proposed Candidate Is Questioned £7 Voters In Area Stabilization Measure! n Overhauling Studied By Council Questions and answere were flowing freely this morning as Chancellor Francis Cherry of JonciVro pursued his campaign Little nock-(/P)-The Arkansas Legislative Council yesterday ap- . proved a study aimed at overhauling '.he slate's revenue disbursement procedure, and rec- commendcd three measures to the . 1953 legislature. A resolution introduced by Rep. Harry B. Colay of Columbia County calling for a study of the revenue stabilization act was approved and sent to the Council's Committee on Revenue. Taxation, Roads and Highways. The committee will study possible means of amending the act "to give a more equitable flow of monies received by various de- p.irtmcnts." Colay's resolution said t h a t the present disbursement formula "sometimes cause undue . h a r d - i ships on certain departments." These three measures were rec- · ommended for introduction to the General Assembly next year: 1. A bill 'o permit judges to authorize "interception of iele- ' graphic and telephonic communications' 1 on petition of certain legal and police officers. The bill apparently would permit wire-tapping. 2. A measure to set new limits nn political spending and contributions. Under the proposed bill, no candidate would be permitted to receive campaign contributions totaling more than 10 times one ^ree cities.
