Key democrats expect to win the showdown today and the House then is expected to approve the Bill so Ping the wide ranging measure to the Senate for final congressional action and on to president Ford the measure was approved last week by Senate House negotiators while supporting most of the Bill. Reps Herman t. Schneebeli r-pa., and Barber b. Conable jr., gop members of the House ways and Means committee told colleagues wednesday that one tax hiking plan should be deleted that plan would hike income taxes on heirs who a Ell inherited property and would gain $162 million for the Treasury by 1981. The new method would require the heir to value the property at the Price that the deceased paid for it rather than at the Price at the time of the deceased s death. Thus if a person buys corporate Stock for $10,000 and to years later wills it to a relative when it was Worth $55,000 and the heir later Sells it for $60,000, present Law would tax the &000 difference. The Bill would change this to tax the $50,000 difference Between the original Cost and the eventual Selling Price the gift and estate tax portions of the package generally reduce Federal taxes in those areas.

He lists new York new Jersey. Pennsylvania Illinois. Wisconsin Michigan Ohio. California. Texas and Florida. A it s going to be those to swing states which Are swing because of the Large amount of electoral votes and because it s reasonably close in All of them a Baker said. Those states account for 256 electoral votes it takes 270 to win. Neither Side is bold enough to claim All of them this Early but whoever controls the bulk of them is Likely to be the next president.
