I up the House ways and Means committee is fashioning a tax Sieve through which to sift a three billion Dollar pay Roll. It is preparing legislation at president Roosevelt a suggestion for reciprocal taxation of salaries paid to Federal state municipal and county employees. Yet out of the billions Given every year to several million workers in those groups the Federal government expects to collect Only about $16,000,000 of taxes an Purily the reason is that by far the largest group of these state and local employees receives salaries payments. The exemptions More than cover the wages. Into this group fall most of the policemen and firemen and Many thousand school teachers most of the employees in Rural counties the average clerk in City and state offices and quite a few of those with More exalted titles. In some states even the governor would pay Only a Small Federal tax on his salary. Average pay for a governor is $7,837 a year but 33 governors get less. The three highest paid governors Are in new York at $25,000, new Jersey at $20,000, and Pennsylvania at $18,000. The National Low is the $3,000 paid by South Dakota. There is some slight variance in the Agures on How Many persons get pay of one kind or another from the 182,000 different state and local governmental units that Dot the land a All of them with taxing Power of their own. The Treasury Atis the figure in round numbers at 2,600,000.

A that policy a governor Hoey explained a is no diversion of tile Road fund. It is the safest Way to protect the roads from real Di-1 version. Why do i say this because when you once begin Levy i log a direct tax on gasoline for i general purposes the Way is open and the bars Are Down and there will be constant increase.
