Review of California propositions
NM Political AMvoftlaomont
By The Associated Presa
Decisions on issues ranging from millions of dollars for low income housing loans to methods of bouncing an incompetent judge from the bench face California voters Tuesday.
In addition to the two most volatile issues — farm labor elections, Prop 14, and greyhound racing. Prop 13 — there are 13 propositions awaiting voter scrutiny None has generated the heated campaigns of 13 and 14, but some are not without arguments pro and con.
HOUSING BONDS. PROP. I.
The state would sell 1500 million worth of general obligation bonds for the state Housing Finance Agency to make loans on low and moderate income housing Supporters say the bonds would give the housing in dustry a needed “shot in the arm” as well as provide funds for low and moderate^ income housing The private sector isn't providing these low interest loans, they say, Opponents, such as Sen H L Richardson. It-Arcadia, call it a “boondoggle” that would leave taxpayers holding the bag if enough loans aren't repaid to pay off the bonds
PARK BONDS. PROP 2 This $280-rrulllon bond issue would provide funds for buying and improving land for parks or wildlife preserves, including SHO million for buying land along the coast Proponents call It a key to the overall plan to protect the coastline from overdevelopment But critics call it a "land grab." an erosion of the property tax base Government already owns enough land (tar say SOLAR INSULATION BONDS,
PROP 3 About 6,001) homes in California, according to hackers, could have improved insulation and solar heating and moling systems installed if voters approve sale of $25 million rn bonds Foes call it a “welfare program to buy air con dit loners for rich people ” but hackers say the program, with guidelines to come from the state Knergy Commission. meets a goal of almost universal accord: energy conservation Prop 3 cannot be effective without voter approval of Prop 12. a technical measure to provide constitutional authority for the loan program
UNIVERSITY, PROP 4 lf passed, the legislature would have the authority lo require I hat the University of California use the competitive bidding process for awarding construction
contracts and selling land It would also amend the state I onstitution to prevent the university from denying admission on the basis of race, religion and ethnic heritage It already is prohibited from denying admission on the basis of sex UC President David .saxon urges defeat of the proposition, calling the admissions provision a gimmick because university policy and the law already prohibit such discrimination He says the university also has a policy of putting jobs of $2 500 or more up for competitive bidding Sen John Stull, R-Escondido, carried
legislation to put the measure on the ballot He has criticized the 1972 sale of Ut San Diego land appraised at It 10.000 to Dr Paul Salt* man. campus provost The price without bidding was 1103.400
INTEREST. PROP 5 [Jespite a lopsided defeat on the June 8 ballot, backers of the move to raise the interest rate allowable on certain
HOUSTON IAP) — Taylor Moore was up to hts beard in des. notebooks and bits of japer as he prepared his jiweekly newsletter on the Howard Hughes legal battles Moore, a Houston attorney, jointed to a foot high stack of legal documents on the left corner of hts desk and said,
‘ that just arrived yesterday and I have to read it and selec* what should be included in this edition "
What started out as a hobby has developed to an almost fulltime job for Moore as he sifts through the legal briefs, court transcripts, the depositions and newspaper clippings involving the vast Hughes estate.
The newsletter, usually a four page publication, is sold to attorneys who want to keep abreast of the latest legal moves, those who may think they could be heirs, and those with just an interest in the proceedings
Moore says he charges $3,000 a year for his service but refuses to disclose the number of clients.
business loans have put It before voters again. Proponents say the IO per cent limit on interest rates has prevented California business, large and small, from borrowing to enlarge plants and increase jobs It would allow interest at either IO per cent or 7 per cent, or the prevailing federal reserve rate, whichever is higher Although consumer loans are exempted from Prop 5, toes say it would funnel money to big business and dry up the consumer loan market
VETO. PROP 6
The governor would get 30 days to veto a bill after the first year of a two-year legislative session Current law gives him 12 days, although the limit is 30 days after the recess of the Iwo-year session Supporters of Prop 6 say it would give the governor more opportunity to consider the hundreds of bills that the legislature sends him in the final days of a session Foes argue that if the legislature were to meet until Dec I. a hill could take effect Jan I with opponents denied the referendum process to hold it in abeyance
JUDICIAL. PROP 7 Under current law. a judge can be censured or removed only where “persistent failure to perform their duties is willful " This proposition would allow removal of judges by the Supreme Court for failure or inability to perform their duties, even if unintentional It would change the name of the Commission on Judicial Qualifications to the Com mission on Judicial Performance Supporters say the change would make it easier to deal with problems of age and health “which may impede the efficiency and quality of justice" There is no organized opposition,
lf approved, non-chartered counties could appoint or elect county school superintendents They could also set superintendent
salaries, which is now done by the legislature It also would allow the legislature to
permit two or more counties to iorm a joint school hoard.
Proponents say It would result in more efficienl
operations Foes contend It would restrict local control of schools and protect Incompetent superintendents VACANCIES. PROP 9 The governor can now fill vacancies of high government
posts, such as lieutenant governor, without approval of the legislature Prop 9 would require Senate and Assembly confirmation. which backers say will bolster the system of checks and balances An opposing argument is that it would politically Involve the legislature In the governor’s executive function TAXING AUTHORITY. PROP IO
There is no known organized opposition to this constitutional amendment that would prohibit a new local governmental agency from levying a property tax without majority voter approval if the agency's boundaries cross a county line PERSONAL
PROP ll Also without known organized opposition. Prop, ll is technical in nature and would require the legislature to adjust the tax rate on personal property in any year in which it changes the assessment ratio
CHIROPRACTORS. PROP 15
The State Board of Chiropractic Examiners
would be Increased from five to seven members and include two public members Prop 15. which has no known organized opposition, would also make minor changes in eligibility requirements for chiropractic schools and the license application period.

• This case is covered in secrecy," Moore said
The undersigned volunteer firemen, representing all the fire departments in Southern Humboldt, are willing to stand up and be counted as HARRY PRITCHARD supporters.
They have known him. worked with him. seen him operate under stress conditions, and feel he is quite a man who would make a first class supervisor.
They plan to vote for HARRY PRITCHARD and urge all their friends to do the same.
