Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Better deals in prospect at sittin -House reconvenes lly KKN I'ULI' EDMONTON Better ileals lor members of Uie house and perhaps (or homeowners plus tougher environmental laws are expected to get top priority nest week when Ihe Alberta legislature begins its [irsl regular fall sitting. Expected to last no longer than (our weeks, Uie silling is the second of Uie first session of the 16th legislature which adjourned June 2 after a record 03 days and :U nights during which 100 bills were passed. The environmental legislation consists of restrictive measures on energy resource industries. Environment Minister Hill Yurko says Ihe industries haven't been doing an adequate job of protecting or reclaiming land. Of particular concern. Mr. Yurko says, are strip mines for sett coal in tlic foothills of the Hockey Moun- tains anil erosion resulting from land-clearing by oil companies. The belter deal lor the 75 MLAs is higher pay. Premier Peter Longheed could get a sessional in- demnity of S9.COO instead of the current and his expense allowance could go to from re- sulting iii a total, with his salary, of a year com- pared with the present The increases were recommended by an independ- ent committee. More {or Strom Opposition Leader Harry Strom could get it the recommendations are from cabinet ministers, the Speaker and Ihe ordi- nary members also would get raises. The better deal for residential owners is expected lo come frc.rn a proposal to eliminate the iiH..iii ievidential property tax for education. Last year, this netted Ihe province shout S100 million which was redistributed lo "have-not" municipalities after equalization. There's speculation lhat among the ways the gov- ernment will recoup funds if it eliminates the property tax is an increase in personal income the benefit lo homeowners. But this also has resurrected Ihe spectre of a retail sales tax. although it's thought unlikely the Progressive Conservative government would make such a move during a sitting when no budget is lo be brought down. Alberta is tlic only province without -a sales tax. If such a lax bill was introduced, it's certain to meet opposition from some of the government MLAs as well as (he 25 Social Creditors and one New Democrat.

He said he could not give a mere definite time- table. The provincial government's approval of the proposed bridge, estimated to cost mil- lion, was first announced by Premier Peter Lougheed when he attended the official opening of the University of Lethbridge last month. Bills held over Included in the eight bills held over from the spring fitting are two pieces of human rights legislation: The Alberta Bill of rights and the Individual Rights Protec- tion Act. The bill of rights, described by Mr, Lougheed as Ihe "first and only provincial bill of its de- signed to protect the individual from the state. This and its companion bill were held over to permit interested parties to make submissions to Uie government. As outlined, it would limit the powers of the legis- lature to enact laws that would abrogate, abridge or Infringe on basic freedoms. The other bill would protect individuals from dis- criminatory acts and practices and would provide for an Alberta Human Rights Commission. The actual workings of the legislatm-e are slated (or change and government house leader Lou Hyndman feels changes are overdue. "Looking back at the spring, I think a lot of mem- bers on both sides of the house.. felt there must be a more efficient way to spend our time. "All felt that there must a more contemporary, 20th-century to do this in the legislative procedure which is essentially derived from, and partly encum-, bered by, rules thaf grew up in parliament two or three centuries Mr. Hyndman, also education minister, said use of more committees to do detailed study of bills and budgets is a distinct possibility. A report on tliis is expected from a special group set up last spring. The sitting begins at p.m. MDT Wednesday and Mr. Hydnman fays there also be evening sittings Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
