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 rationale explaining how the total figure was arrived at, the commissioners said However, Joseph Tate, commission director, who prepared the budget, contended the commissioners were asking for too much specific information and that he had too little time to prepare the budget.

He said he doesn’t think the commission needs that much money because it isn’t “doing anything .” 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 commission’s backlog of cases, which increased slightly to 1.058 last month, with any less money Culver Urges Tax Reform For Elderly SPIRIT LAKE (UPI) -Democratic U.
