The proposed budget was approved Thursday on the condition that all seven commissioners participate in a telephone conference later to iron out difficulties in the doc- ument. Difficulties Some of those difficulties include failure to specifiy how the money is to be spent, job titles the commissioners didn't understand and no ra- tionale explaining how the total figure was arrived at, the commissioners said. However, Joseph Tate, commission director, who prepared the budget, contend- ed the commissioners were asking for too much specific information and that he had too little time to prepare the budget. Commissioner James Gill- man said the commissioners Height, Weight Criteria Must Relate to Job Needs DES MOINES (AP) Height and weight require- ments for employment must be related to the needs of the job or they are unconstitution- al, an attorney general's opin- ion issued Thursday said. Joseph L. Tate, executive director of the Iowa civil rights commission, asked 'if an employer can use height and weight requirements for employment if there is uu business necessity for them. Not Prohibit In her opinion, Asst. Atty. Gen. Roxanne Barton Conlin said neither the U. S. nor Iowa constitutions forbid such job requirements. But she said if such stand- ards mean that a certain class of people cannot qualify, they are unlawful if the require- ments are not necessary for the position. She cited an Ohio court decision which held that height and weight require- ments for police officers pre- vented most women from qualifying. The court said the effect of the requirements was Income Listed By Chuck Dick DES MOINES Chuck Dick of DCS Moines, Repub- lican candidate for Fourth district congressman, report- ed Tuesday he has outspent campaign contributions by 825 during 1974.

Necessary On the other hand, an Oklahoma federal court case found that such requirements were necessary for truck drivers, she said. "The question of whether height and weight require- ments discriminate is a fact question, tested by the busi- ness necessity or rational rela- tionship Conlin said.

He said he doesn't think the commission needs that much money be- cause it isn't "doing any- thing." Hold Hearings Although the commission has not held a public hearing for the last 15 months, Tate said he plans to hold 18 during fiscal year 1976, which begins next July. Tate also said his staff couldn't clear up the commis- sion's backlog of cases, which increased slightly to last month, with any less money.
