IS, 1974 f Cites Pressure To Amend State OSHA Penalties Will Lobby to Ban Major Oil Firms from Iowa DES MOINES (UPI) - The executive secretary of the Iowa Gas Dealers Assn. (IGDA) announced Tuesday his organization will lobby the 1975 state legislature for a law banning major oil companies and refineries from owning and operating gas stations in Iowa. William Zenter said the bill sought by the association would not prevent independent dealers from leasing gas stations. He said the IGDA believes that banning ownership by the major companies would eliminate unfair competition from the refineries and chain stations owned by large oil producers. Zenter said the proposed measure “would make for more equitable the conditions of the gas industry.’* Zenter said it is unfair that the stations owned by large gas companies can operate on smaller profit margins and sell their gas for lower prices than the independent dealer faced with higher overhead costs. Zenter, who noted that Florida and Maryland have enacted similar legislation, said it could stabilize gas prices and bring back good service.
