Topeka March 30 it if a no holds barred struggle filled it us pension and uncertainty Over a major Rax looms ahead of the Kansas legislature in its dying jays. The lawmakers Hope to quit work next week. But pressure packed decisions on a tax pro Gram will determine whether that goal is reached or whether a special session might be necessary. Only one thing was certain As the legislature went Home Tor the week end a raging fight Over the unsettled tax problem was hotter than Ever and nobody would predict its ultimate solution. Gov. George Docking wants the legislature to raise about 22 million dollars in additional Revenue before it goo Home of it does the says hell Call a special session. By the end of this week legislative action had been completed on two major Revenue Bills a to raise about 1.7 Milton through an increased cigarette tax and about 3.5 million in higher individual and corporate income taxes. The Battle now centers Over an increased sales tax Severance tax on Oil and Gas and an and Valorme tax. All of which have Mut i opposition. Hopes of the Republican leadership to Send an increased sales tax to Docking were shattered for the time being at least by determined Republican Severance tax supporters who joined with democrats to Block it. House Severance tax adherents Are waging a terrific fight to Force a floor vote on the Issue. Even some of the Severance opponents say it would have a Good Chance of passing if it e or comes up for a vote. But the Severance tax had additional Road blocks thrown in its path today leading some observers to believe it might be hanging on the ropes. The Senate approved a House Resolution fixing a deadline of next wednesday for final consideration of Bills and completed action on the income tax Bill. Some Severance tax supporters thermometer Reading had been hoping to Combine that j tax with even higher income taxes to preclude the necessity for an and Valorme Levy or a higher sales tax. The House voted to reconsider its action on the income tax yesterday after adopting a conference committee report but the Bill already had been rushed to the Senate. The vote to reconsider was meaningless. A new Severance tax proposal forced through the House assessment and taxation committee Fri a Day has not been sent to the House floor yet by committee chairman Marion Mathews a Winfiel Dan opponent of the tax. With a deadline of wednesday for consideration of Bills it will be touch and go Over whether the Severance tax can be considered. Under House rules Mathews is not required to report the Severance tax to the floor until tuesday. If not reported until then it would not normally be debated until wednesday or thursday unless emergency actions requiring two i Irb votes were taken. Severance tax supporters say in a showdown fight they might be Able to Force a floor vote on a majority vote through parliamentary mane vering. If passe by the House it would go to the Senate since it is a difference measure from one approved by the Senate last week. That Bill was tabled by a joint tax and Oil Ami Gas committee. There is no Assurance what might happen if the Senate gets another crack at it. The first Hill was passed 23-17. The new Severance tax would raise about 7.2 million even if i this were passed the legislature would be several million Short of hitting the 22 million figure. It a understood a Bill for an and Valorme tax has been pre pared. Docking said he might possibly sign such a measure to help balance the budget. Thiere would have to be a lot of switching in the House to get it i through. The House voted Over continued on Page seven for intangible property list Topeka March 20 of Legisla live Adion was virtually completed today on a Bill its sponsors say May bring in local units of government several million dollars a year in additional Revenue. The Bill a House measure passed by the Senate would require a taxpayer to file a report with the county assessor listing his intangible property holdings. As envisioned by its supporters the report would be similar to an income tax return Senate passage sends the measure Back to the House for consideration of a minor corrective amendment. House acceptance to the correction will Send the Bill to the governor. Intangible property kit subject to taxation under present Law but rep. Vav. H.
