Indus trial tax sharing program will be rath- er limited initially, municipal affairs minister Fred Colborne said Friday. Mr. Colborne, in an inter- view, said the plan, announced in the speech from the throne opening the legislature Thurs- day, was based on a recom- mendation of the special com- mittee on assessment and tax- ation. The government, in the speech, said the legislation will provide for "adoption of the principle of industrial tax-shar- ing so that all municipalities shall receive an equitable share of the benefits derived from ASHPHALT J PAVING T energy resource development." Mr. Colborne said the last three words were the "key." Saying the principle may be extended later, "this is a good place to start." Only power transmission lines, pipelines, power generat- ing equipment and railway right of way will be cover- ed in the initial program, he said. Legislation planned also will provide mobile homeowners to qualify for tax discounts, give them a vote, and allow them to be taxed on the same basis as conventional homeowners, Mr. Colborne said. "We think this will go a long way to removing the preju- dices some municipalities have against mobile homes and wit ease the way for more land for this growing form of hous- ing."
