Oelwein Daily Register (Newspaper) - March 7, 1970, Oelwein, Iowa New House bill would curb public school financing THERELL BE SOME CHANGES old opera house in Wadena willbe a prime target of developer H R Johnson who seeks to redevelop his hometown Johnson now a Monroe North Caro lina construction man plans to buy most of Waden as businesses and renovate the city and surround ing area HR Johnson moves DBS MOINES movement to curtail radically local financing of public schools has picked up support in the Iowa legislature Two bills to establish state foundation aid for local schools received enthusiastic consideration a committee meeting dur ing the week Sen Charlene Conklin RWater loo said a number of problems re main to be worked out in both bills but that we have to do something about the property tax situation She added her impression that other members of the Ways and Means Schools and Cities and committees who attended a meeting to discuss the bills were enthusiastic about the founda tion concept Sen William Reichardt Moines is author of one of the bills Sen Roger Shaff RCa manche is sponsor of the other Reichardl said the idea behind both bills has had much more support than 1 thought possible Each would substitute high lev els of stale school support around 80 per cent for current methods which rely heavily on local prop erty taxes supplemented with about 30 per cent state aid distributed under a complex formula The Reichardt measure already filed in the Senate would require the state to pay each school dis trict 80 per cent of the state aver age perpupil expenditure for each child attending its schools Thus if the stale comptroller found the average pcrpupil ex penditure for the state were per year each district would he entitled to S800 in state aid for each student listed in its average daily attendance report to the state The bill would limit school dis trict tax levies to 20 mills requir ing each district to live within the combined total of state aid plus money raised from he levy Districts could appeal for a sin gle year only for state emergen cy funds The obvious question as admit ted by Reichardt and Mrs Conk lin is where would the state funds come from given the depleted stale of Iowa coffers and legisla tive reluctance to challenge Gov Robert Ray on his promise that there will be no increase in state taxes No public suggestions on the source of the new state funds have made by the bills propon ents Mrs Conklin said she believes the RcichardtShaff approach to solving school finance problems will continue to
