slim margin of control in the Iowa Legislature even hough the US Supreme Court has or dered reapporlionment strictly on a population basis If that comes to pass how ever the rural edge is likely to be more theoretical than real And it might take a lot of high powered legal arguments to convince Ihe court the rural margin resulted from a bona fide good faith effort to appor tion legislative scats solely on a population basis The Supreme Court ruled on June 15 that both houses of state legislatures must be apportion ed on a population basis It said no other factor may be consid ered in distribution of legislative scats The court also made clear i that its idea of fair apportion ment requires not only that a majority of the people elect a majority of the legislators but thai each member must repre sent as nearly as possible the same number of people as any other member of the same house It recognized the impossibility of insuring that exactly the same number of persons lives in every legislative district But it said the US Constitution requires that a state make an honest and goodfaith effort to construe districts in both houses of its legislature as nearly of equal population as is practicable Some observers believe con tinued rural control at least in theory may be possible for two reasons areas have more pop ulation than rural areas in Iowa only by the thinnest margin deviation from popula tion apportionment allowed for practical reasons may operate in favor of rural areas giving Ihcm enough representation to overcome the cities population edge Said Gene Reyhons who as di rector of the Legislative Re search Bureau probably has drafted more rcapportionmcnt proposals than any other lowan in recent years I have no doubt that rural control is possible in theory even under pure population ap portionment Ally Gen Evan HuHman said There is room for deviation from precise population appor tionment within the Supreme Court ruling The question is how much de viation HuHman noted that US Dis trict Court in DCS Moincs early this year ordered one house of the Iowa Legislature apportion ed on a population basis and re quired that any deviation from population apportionment of the other chamber must be ration al He said the Supreme Court ruling has essentially the same effect The high tribunal shed some light on its attitude toward de viation from population appor tionment in its recent ruling on makeup of congressional dis tricts Here Hultman said it ruled that districts must be set up on a population basis but in dicated that some districts with deviation of 10 to 15 per cent from precise equality were ac ceptable The principle is the same and the court probably would al low 10 to 15 per cent deviation in setting up districts for stato legislatures HuHman said If this deviation favored rural areas it could throrcclically give them the upper hand in the Iowa Legislature but it would have to stand the Supremo Courts test of honest and nod faith effort toward equality A 10 to 15 per cent edge would be all rural lawmakers would need to put legislative control theoretically within their reach The US Census Bureau re ported that in 1960 Iowa urbnn areas had 531 per cent of the REMAP 1
