reapportioned legis lature willmake the cause o agriculture their cause to a greater degree than ever be tore The governor said he signed the bill with a profound sens of humility and thanksgiving He said it is the most farreach ing enactment by the Iowa Leg islature in this century He praised members of th their in dividual positions may hav been in the apportionment de bate for solving the stubborn reapportionment problem Hughes expressed particula thanks to the legislative leader ship in both parties for provid ing a classical example of uni bipartisan effort to an is sue that clearly transcends par tisan considerations We lowans on the farms and in the cities must plan togelhei and work together if we are tc prosper together Hughes said the concept tha all citizens should have an equa voice in government is a consti tutional guarantee that mus prevail over other considera tions The reshuffling of legislativ seats was since a con stitutional amendment wa adopted in 1904 The 1904 amendment set up essentially the plan under vvhicl present legislature wa elected The only change in thL formula came in 1928 with an amendment providing that no county could have more than one Senate seat That provision along with several others was thrown ou y the Federal Court which ast Jan 15 ordered reapportion ment t The major difference between the new plan and the existing system is in the influence thai hemore populous counties wil lave in the lawmaking body Their strength wil be greatly increased A majority of the current House of Representatives was about 7 per cent o the people Under the new plan about 45 per cent of the people will elect a House majority About 35 per cent of the peo pie elected a majority of the present Senate About 39 per cent will elect a Senate major ty this fall To put it another way the 11 argest counties which contain half the Iowa population wil elect 39 per cent of the new House and 478 per cent of the Senate This is somewhat less than he onemanone vote concept hat some propose However he population factor is in creased enough that some hange in the legislative atti ude is expected The House now has 108 mem bers There is one for each county One more is added from each of the nine most populous ounties The new House will have 124 eats but some counties wont a representative all to hemselves Polk County which low has two House
