The house toiled into the night over the controversial measure to establish a state land use policy Thursday, and 21 members were absent when the vote was taken at p.m. Cochran said he is sure enough of the absentees favor the legislation to pass it when it comes up again. There was speculation that some had to leave before the debate ended because they had commitments to attend the state basketball tournament with constituents.

It also would set up a county and use policy commission U each county. The state department would develop broad land use guide- lines, and each county and special administrative district would be required to formu- late a local land use policy within those guidelines by 1977. The legislature would then enact a statewide policy into law. "This bill is not intended to stop Cochran said, haphazard and unplanned con- version of land to irreversil urban uses. "One of the qusstions many you have asked is what i joing to cost. But let me as what is it going to cost if we p so much land under concre that we can't feed our peopli Land is a resource that is vit to us all." "Bureaucratic Nonsense" But Rep. Richard Byerly (D Ankeny) charged the bill "strewn with bureaucratic no. sense" and instead of movin toward realistic land use plan rung will serve only as "a be nanza for consulting firms. Th state and every county is goin o have to hire a consultant." Rep.

She said it would allow countj zoning commissions to keep cities from annexing land need ed for growth and tell .them "where to put our sanitary land- fills, where to.locate our streets when w.e can put in sewers anc where we have to put them."

"I don't know'what this is going to cost and nobody else knows Harvey said, "but I think it will be at least that much." His amendment was defeated, however, 64-18, after Cochran said the legisla- ture will bring up another bill to provide the money. Butler and Rep. Joan Lipsky (R-Cedar Rapids) tried repeat- edly to write hi a provision that all or a majority of the five new state commission members be from cities over but they were voted down. Rep.
