day Friday The longest previous regular session was 125 days in 1963 i dlock The proposed budgetfor the coming biennium starting July 1 is to be financed largely through to make up the difference between the pres ent million a year budget and the million spending package that is The House however dealt a7 resounding defeat Thursday night to a compromise measure to provide one of the iwind falls estimated toj bring in more than million annually during the next biennium The bill would provide for monthly remission to the State Tax Commission or deposit in a bank designated by the com mission of salestax receipts of many merchants The House refused 6849 to accept compromise put to gether bya conference commit tee between the two vhouses The compromise1 measure have required

industries million or more in gross salesunlessall the busi ness were done in cash For those businesses doing less than million in gross sales per year and collecting or more in sales tax a month it would have made monthly reporting of returns op tional if more than half of the business was done by charge ac counts or other credit means running more than 60 days The compromise plan knocked out of
