The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., April 29, 1974 Rent Security Deposit Bill Sent to House DES MOINES (AP) A com- promise measure to insure that landlords return security de- posits to renters was approved 42-2 Monday by the Iowa senate and sent to the house. Originally, the senate version would have required landlords to pay 5 percent interest on the deposits. The house voted that the landlords need not pay in- terest but must keep the de- posits in separate trust funds. The compromise approved by a legislative conference com- mittee eliminated the interest requirement and required the security deposits be kept sepa- rate from landlords' personal funds. While the requirement that the interest should be paid to tenants was stricken, the com- promise added a provision that if any Interest is earned, it must go to landlords. The measure also would re- quire landlords to justify any part of the deposit not returned and would impose a fine of up to if part or all of the' de- posit wasn't returned within 30 days after the renter moved.

They claim they have to up prices because people are using fewer kilowatts. People, arc. cutting, back electricity usage everywhere except in the Midwest. Utili- ties reporting specific con- sumption figures in the New England, the Mid-Atlantic states, the South, the South- west and the West and North- west, reported usage was down, generally by some- where between 1 and 10 per- cent. Utilities generally ex- pect an annual growth rate of about 7 or 8 percent in over- all usage. There, are. moves, toward more regulation of electricity rates and drives to organize consumers against rising prices. In Connecticut, for ex- ample, legislation is pending that would limit the amount utilities could add on to bills for fuel adjustment charges. The measures also would re- quire companies to document just how they figure the fuel adjustment charge and to sub- mit financial records for audit every two years.
