Corley  DKS MOI NKS (AP) Overtime provisions in the new federal minimum wage law are causing headaches for state, county and city officials in Iowa.  The law, signed by President Nixon April 8, went into effect May I and covers some five million government employes for the first time. Many officials are still trying to determine what’s in it.  Officials of the league of Iowa Municipalities and the Iowa State Assn. of Counties say they have been flooded  with questions on the new lav/ from local officials.  ‘ We haven’t had a copy of the bill yet,” said Ed Allen, director of the league of municipalities. ‘‘All we have is the original bill before it was worked on.”  Paper Shortage  Allen said regional federal officials tell him they are in the same shape because a paper shortage is keeping the bill from being printed and distributed.  State officials “have been working almost night and day  for a couple of weeks” to bring various state offices in line with the requirement that employes be paid time-and-a-half for overtime work, said State Comptroller Marvin Selden.  “We’re starting from the premise there is minimal overtime worked to begin with,” Selden said. “If you don’t have it (overtime), you don’t pay it.”  Past Practice  This premise will work hardships on some offices,  Regents Vote Independent  Status, with Aid, for DI  COUNCIL BLUFFS (UPI) -—Iowa City, Coralville and Uni-  The state board of regents has approved an agreement allowing the student corporation that  DI’s revenue and that the re  mainder comes from advertising.  * * *  Daily Iowan (DI) from the university.

Payne and his wife, Phyllis, 21, were treated for minor injuries at People’s Memorial hospital and released.  . He was charged with drunk driving and failure to yield half the traveled portion of the highway.  Iowa City Board  Approves Rezoning  though, and some will have to continue to work employes overtime.  Both employes of the highway commission and guards at the state institutions have been paid overtime in the past but only ut regular hourly pay rates.  “The conservation commission has to work (jut problems because they are basically a six month operation operating state parks,” Selden said.  The state fiscal director said the state may have to hire additional employes next year to avoid paying overtime.  Change Schedules  Selden said most state departments have a problem -“but not beyond solution.” One solution is to change work weeks so that some employes will work their 40 hours within three or four days.  He noted the law would not allow the employes to work six days one week and only four the next week in emergencies because hour adjustments must be made within a single pay week.  “The state board of regents has been under the minimum wage provisions since 1966 so there’s no problem with it and that’s half the state employes,” Selden said.  Two Shifts  He said each department will find its own peculiar problems.  “Our own data processing division operates on a 168-hour week,” Selden said. “If somebody gets sick, someone else has to work two shifts.”  Selden said the highway commission has two types of overtime that will have to continue even at tho higher pay — storm cleanup work and inspection of new construction.  But he said budgets will have to bt; reworked so the commission does not overspend.
