controversial measure which has been called oversize truck bill was in the scrap pile Thursday with Gov Harold Hughes veto White the governor and other members of the Iowa Trade Mission were touring Europe there had been considerable speculation over what Hughes would do with the bill one of a awaiting his return He answered that Wednesday with his stamp of disapproval The measure would have re moved from the slates truck regulation law most of the re strictions on oversize and over weight trucks and left it to the State Highway Commission and local governing bodies to deter mine whether special permits for such vehicles should be is sued In effect it gave the commis sion almost unlimited authority over truck operations in the state Exercising his first veto over nearly 400 measures passed by the last legislature Hughes said the bill at first glance appeared to be a good one to assist truckers by clarifying state laws It also appeared to add to the home rule powers of local governing bodies he added Nevertheless the governor said I felt the legislation went too far in its delegation of au thority The protection of hu man lives on our highways and the preservation of our highway system is a matter of state wide and not purely local con cern The bill was said to have been drawn up by trucking interests who in turn agreed not to op pose a one cent a gallon tax in crease

violates the Iowa Constitution by delegat ing broad powers to the Highway Commission and local authori ties Hughes said in his veto mes sage it was his responsibility to disapprove the bill with full respect for the good intentions of the legislature in adopting it The governor was at his desk for the first time since the European sell Iowa tour be gan three weeks ago He had a busy day Wednesday
