Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Vinton School Board Tells Staff Changes The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., April 16, 1974 By Frank Nye DES MOINES - Senate Majority Leader Clifton Lamborn (R-Maquoketa) doesn’t like the long truck amendments the Iowa house added to the senate’s department of transportation (DOT) bill but he’s wondering if it can be made more palatable by inserting the word “final.” More palatable to Gov. Robert Ray, that is. It is no secret the governor has indicated he will sacrifice the DOT, which he wants very much, if he has to take it with the truck amendments attached. Lamborn, who favors long trucks but doesn’t think the amendments for them have any business on the DOT bill, told The Gazette Monday that the measure is unenforceable as: passed by the house. One Amendment One truck amendment legal izes 65-foot twin-trailer vehicles (present legal length is 60 feet) | [the house’s truck amendments I when the DOT bill conies up in the senate, he may ask senators to strip the amendments from the bill knowing that probably will send it to conference com-!mittee. The compromise, in that case, might be for the house to back down on the twin-trailer amendment if the senate would accept the single-trailer livestock truck amendment. The senate may take up the DOT bill, with its house amendments, yet this week.
