Anniston Star (Newspaper) - November 20, 1971, Anniston, Alabama Anniston Alabama saturday nov. 20,1971limns to ii Bitar Alabama a largest Home owned newspaper vol. 92, no. 326 Price to cents lawmakers end special session Montgomery. Ala. Apr taking Only the minimum amount of time five Days the Alabama legislature completed a special session Friday after appropriating More than $1 billion to operate the state until sept. 30. 1973. The lawmakers sent gov. George Wallace an education budget totalling $828 million for the two Vear period and a general fund appropriation measure for More than $203 million. Also approved by the legislature was a measure to raise the teacher retirement pay Factor from 1.25 to 1.75 per cent. Included in the record education measure is a 5 per cent raise for teachers for each year of the biennium. The education budget Calls for $406.8 million the current fiscal year and $422 million the next. Wallace has already said he plans to Call the House and Senate Back into a special session to consider property tax legislation but he has not announced the Date. Many legislators said Friday they Felt the next special session would come Early in december. The separate general fund Bill finances non school operations of the government and gives More Money for mental health but could mean pay less paydays for the legislature itself. It took the House Only minutes on each of the big appropriations to concur with Senate amendments. Immediately after House approval Wallace made an unscheduled appearance before the legislature and congratulated the members for a a great Job Quot of providing for the needs of the state. The governor said the Alabama legislature was the Only one in the nation to do that this year without imposing additional consumer taxes. The major amendment in the general fund was made thursday by the Senate finance committee when it made All appropriations to mental health absolute. The House had suggested some conditional appropriations for the program. As the committee sent the Bill to the floor the legislature received Only $500,000 absolute funds with All other legislative Money conditional on the status of the state Treasury and the approval of the governor. After failing on a 20-15 Roll Call to make the legislative funding absolute the Senate approved $750,000 for each year for legislative expenses. The remaining legislative funds Are conditional. Most of the $750,000 is necessary to pay the salaries of House and Senate employees Aix would leave Little left to pay lawmakers themselves. However the amendment does t restrict the Money to employee pay. Administration leaders in the Senate argued against the absolute appropriation for the legislature saying it would run the general fund into proration and jeopardize Money for mental health old age pensions and state employee pay. Conditional appropriations added to the education Bill totalled $11.8 million the major portion being some $9 million it would take to give a 5 per cent increase in the budgets of All institutions of higher learning.
