Los Angeles times Syndicate Bill could mean state lottery a demise by Bob Taft ii state representative 65th House District s t a t e l o t t e r v reorganized Ohio House floor debate was at its Best last wednesday when a Bill to reorganize the Ohio lottery was approved. Senate Bill in will reorganize the lottery but it also establishes a termination Date for the lottery erf Jan. T 1963. Unless the legislature acts to reestablish it. An amendment was offered or the House floor to push this Date Forward to Jan. 1, 1982. I supported this Amend a Merit because i believe. The lottery is on trial now. If the reorganization and the new daily numbers game do not produce an efficient profitable lottery by a year from Rizowy the lottery should be abolished As part of the two year a budget that the. Legislature will approve in june of 1982. Unfortunately the amendment to establish the 1982 deadline for the lottery clean up was Defeated by narrow margin. This legislation increases the Power and authority of the lottery a executive director and decreases authority Over personnel. Contracts and Rule making now exercised by the Ohio lottery commission. One of the numerous problems plaguing the lottery a management has been the division of authority Between the executive Quot director and the commission with respect to Day to Day management decisions. The Bill increases the number statewide press scrutiny it is Clear that the Ohio lottery has not been the Goose that Laid thie Golden egg. It has not been and never will be a solution to Ohio a school fun Dong problems it has not provided tax Relief to the overburdened Ohio taxpayer. Not is there evidence that it has reduced the influence of organized crime in the daily numbers Racket. This is a final Chance for the lottery7 although i am sympathetic to the views of one Columbus dateline of members erf the lottery commission from five to nine and places almost All lottery employees under the civil service a system to remove the insecurity of political appointment and removal. The Bill also requires that the lottery director maintain an office in Columbus and that the lottery commissions meetings be held in Columbus. One erf the Many criticisms directed at the lottery has been its location in Cleveland too far removed from the spotlight of legislative and legislator who stated that he favored a apocalypse i am willing to give the lottery an additional year on the basis of the initial Success of the daily numbers game and the reorganization contained in this Bill. Senate Bill 129 will now go to the governor who is expected to sign it into Law right away. Rock concert safety i attended the first hearing on state sen.

Tity hinges on Strong defense Taylor is debating the same Type of questions now in his mind and with his wife Judy. He has six children at Home and he and his spouse Are starting their Home construction business. Commissioner Allen Paul is not running for re election which is opening up the Slot. A democratic political figure reportedly took a poll and found that Taft would have Little trouble winning the commission Job.

And military capability As being weak and this perception of weakness has been a significant Factor in the unstable situation that now exists in the Middle East. The question we must ask ourselves is what has occurred to make our Power less credible by Bill Gradison Reprez i Iii a anyone who has read Quot a newspaper watched television or listened to the radio is Well aware of the serious situation in the Middle East and the Impact that. The events of recen weeks in that area have Nad on. America at this writing 50 .

Lacked and the installation of a soviet puppet regime in Kabul As Well As the recent russian invasion of Afghanistan pose a threat to our interests in the persian Gulf. Many internal and external reasons Are cited for triggering these events. However Many View current . Foreign policy by about 150 billion a year and have surpassed us in number of strategic weapons conventional and naval forces. While the Quality of our weapons is generally considered Superior the soviets Are quickly closing that Gap As Well. Other actions which Cen to our enemies and to reduce . Standing abroad for nearly 20 years the soviet Union has increased its real defense spending by three to four percent each year. At the same time our own defense spending has declined after correcting for inflation every v ear from 1968 to 1976. Currently the soviets Are out spending the . In total military capacity tribute to our perceived weakness include the withdrawal of . Troops from South Korea the cancellation of the b-1 bomber program the decision to defer production of the Neutron bomb the presidential veto of the by 1979 defense authorization Bill . Inaction in the Issue of soviet troops in Cuba and our reluctance to become involved in military action when our own Security is not directly threatened. This last item is commonly referred to As the a Post Vietnam it. Is essential to Quot world peace that every Effort be made by Congress to assure that the is. Maintains a Strong defense posture. We must regain the respect of our adversaries and change our fainthearted image. If we done to we. Will Cantonie to be the target of economic and military blackmail and lose the ability to defend our interests As Well As those of our allies. Our Best defense is weapons that will never have to be used and soldiers who will Hever have to fight. But we must never forget that peace is the fruit of our strength and our will to use it judiciously if we mus weather Hasni to allowed sampling of new Snow policy by state sen. Richard h. Finan 7 the. District. A Friend told me of the most ardent Democrat he had Ever met a this person even say anything Good about Abraham bumper sticker of the week seen on an Indiana car on 1-75 a done to reelect anyone a because of our mild Winter to Date and Lack erf Snow ohioans have not sampled the new state policy on Snow and ice removal. I Hope we done to have to Sample it for the rest of this a Winter. Beginning in december erf 1979. Ohio abandoned its previous longstanding policy erf a Bare roads Snow and ice removal. The procedures which Are self explanatory had been in effect since i960. Ohio becomes the last of the Snow Belt states to abandon the Bare roads approach. Clearly the reason is Money but even More so the shortage of de icing materials. Last year the Dot used 570 tons erf Road Salt. Right now the bins Are full with the Complete 230-ton capacity. However prospects of getting anymore this Winter Are extremely poor. In essence it Means that you plow the roads starting with the main arteries and working your Way Down to less important highways then you Only use de icing material a sometimes mixed with Sand and cinders1 on dangerous areas such As Hills curves and. Intersections. I guess if it has worked in other stoles we can live Quot with it also. By the Way obviously travelling to Columbus every week one must be prepared for bad weather. During the Winter i always carry a number of emergency items in addition to the usual obvious things such As a flashlight flares jumper cables etc., i throw in a Lew extras. A Small child s Snow shovel. Has been invaluable to me insure instances. A Large plastic Container filled with Sand a Quot Salt has helped me out in some circumstances. A knit Cap and an extra pair of gloves plus boots and Scarf Are most Handy if you have to change a tire. Finally while eve never had in use it i always throw in a sleeping bag. If stranded it could be literally a Lifesaver . 733 passed with my yes. The Bill basically expands the investment authority Quot of Domestic life insurance companies. It allows them to get into things like tangible personal property first liens on tangible personal property first liens on real estate not exceeding. 80 percent o�., the value of the real estate obligations secured by assignment of leases or of rentals payable under leases to Canadian or province of Canada obligations that fall into that area investment in balding and loan associations anti removed certain restrictions on the investment in common stocks. The Bill had received extensive hearings and much cons duration before it appeared on the floor . 729 passed with my yes it was sort erf a. Compani ii,.bdi to the prior subject. This clarified the language relating to investments of Domestic insurance companies other than life in.s-41ra.11ce-. Companies and granted it ugh companies investment authority equivalent to the Vest a authority granted similar companies by the tows of Ether state. Frankly its a problem we constantly run into keeping pare with these kind of things and anytime you Are involved with substantial regulatory authority. . 402 also passed with a yes vote from me. A he Bill requires that bail that has Bren deposited by a person other than the accused to assure the appearance of the accused before the court be returned to this person if Quot the accused appears in court. The problem is that some courts . 333 passed received my yes but it was done reluctantly. The Bill permits a Board erf county commissioners to Grant paid vacation leave to part time county employees based upon the total number erf years of service. Specifically the part time county employee must work at least 520 hours annually to be eligible for paid vacation leave. The discussion on the floor indicated that there were a number of jote that counties did not have need for a full time Richard Finan have been keeping that bail Money and applying it to the fines and costs levied in the rest. While i might have some problems with different kinds of. Bail that is not the purpose of bail under our1 Ohio Taw and indeed once the accused shows up then the person posting bail should get their Money Back. Reach me at 11137 main Street Cincinnati 45241, 563-6161, or state House Columbus Ohio 43216, <614 466-9737. Person. Yet they Felt that to give that person. A week or so of vacation after a number of years of service was in their Best interest. Sometimes it was the thing that permitted them to keep a very valuable part time individual. On that basis., 1. Went along with the Bill. And it is permissive. , 263 easily received my yes vote and passed just As easily the Bill authorizes statutory communities m the. State of Ohio that s cities that Are not under a charter to legislatively Combine the offices of City auditor and City treasurer into the office of City finance director. This makes a lot of sense and has precedent. Virtually every charter Community that a where a City can in effect set up its own method of government that Las occurred in Ohio has done just this. Further believe it or not we allowed this for villages sometime ago. Now we re finally getting around to the cities . 17 passed with my yes i pm. Not really sure its going to do much Good but at least Well Send a Little paper to Washington. 1 this is a joint Resolution that urged the Federal government of the United states of America to adopt a policy erf consultation Aid concurrence with the state m the development of no Rlph a waste disposal procedures Aid Sites. I guess the Bottom line to the implementation of that Resolution is whether the people of the United. States Are willing to have people in Washington who will consult with states. It would be a new twist they done to consult with us on much else before they ram it Down our the pets
