Minnesota will be taxed 10 cents a pound with expected revenue of mil Bon for the next two years DES MOINES ments of the 1363 Iowa urc were largely accomplished1 by the Republican Party Lt Gov William Mooty said Friday He rejected the contention of Democratic Gov Harold Hughes that the legislatures record was one on which Hughes could run for reelection When a Republicancontrolled legislature passes something how can a Democrat governor take credit for it asked Mooty in an exclusive interview with the Asso ciated Press He added I dont that the Republican Party was hurt one iota by this session I think we can run on the record as well as the governor can He also predicted that the bill legalizing liquor by the drink may become an albatross around the necks of those who claim credit for it Id just as soon let the goverj nor take credit for this bill Mooly said The lieutenant governor turned aside questions about reports that he may run for governor against Hughes Thats a long way off he said First theres a primary you know If the rumors ar6 cor rect there might be quite a battle in the primary If I do decide to run I might never get to the general election The only bills for which Demo crats can claim credit for passage Mooty said were those on which Republicans were split almost evenly He said the only major issues he recalled in this category were liquor by the drink and the bill giving the Iowa Commerce Commission authority to regulate rales and services of public utilities Mooty said he believes from seen that thc people of the state are pretty happy that the legislature failed to pass a major lax in crease and properly tax relief bill They began to realize as this thing went along that this was actually a tax increase instead of a property tax relief bill he said Here are some of the lieutenant governors comments Governor Hughes has said hc believes the Democratic Party came out very well and tiiat a remarkably large part of their platform was enacted A 1 recall that on House File j50 the tax increase and property wasnt very happy with that one anyway It didnt have withholding A Thats right 0 He even said he probably would have vetoed thai one He said he would have taken the House version which did include A Im opposed to withholding The reason Im opposed to it is that I want people to know how much taxes cost them I want hem to walk up and pay it in one chunk or two the way our state does in two payments rot hcr than have it taken out of your pay check Q Do you think a withholding system because its easier to pay could have passed that bill if A rnht v mistake that we have System bill to increase a withholding from the point off Both of these were view that if people had to walk of the Republican and pay this federal in one chunk they really would scream and vote their congress men and senators out of office as spendthrifts We already have withholding on nonresidents We are taking in about million right now but were making re funds of about a half million dol lars So were gaining about three quarters of a million right there right now in taxes How about some mcnt we made early in the ses 0 bills other A Ive looked over some of these other bills Hughes claims credit for The liquor bill and thc public utilities bill ones 1 recall that sion Theyve been saying did nothing absolutely for labor But we did increase the payments un der workmens compensation and that was in our Republican statement of policy also Q To talk broader terms Hughes said that he thought the Democrats came out of the ses sion with a record he can run on next year if he decides to run What political implications do you see in the sessions record A I dont feel that Re publican Party was hurt one iota M IIVJHK vuu same as in our really wanted a passed federal system I think its a tcr Hc claims credit for the fair employment practices bill and Iowa Public Employes Rc null uiiv lULa are he only by this session I dont feel they couldnt have were hurt at all I think we can run on it just as well as he can Id just as soon let him take credit or this liquor by the drink bill I think the people are goutf
