On one side c! him, Hie so- called antiparty group stands in favor of a rct.urn to some-of ceived preliminary approval after three attempted amendments failed. If the House accepts the bill Friday as passed by the Senate, it will go to Gov. Price Daniel for Ill's signature. However, if the House refuses Senate changes, the bill probably will go to a joint conference commitlee. The bill's major provisions re- quire that: 1. Banks may not transfer dor- mant accounts to profits through the use of assessments or service charges. 2. Banks shall advertise for missing owners of dormant ac- counts and if no owners are found, the accounts less than will be put in a slate conservator fund not lo exceed 3. On accounts more than banks have a choice of continuing to advertise or to turn the money over-to the stale. 4. Any missing owner may claim his money after it has been turned over to Ihe state. Such payments will be made from the conservator fund. The bill is similar to the House version. The major change is Sen- ate elimination of a provision slating lhat money laken by (he slate will remain in Ihe conserva- tor fund for five years.
