EBERLINI DES MOINES AP T h owa House opened debate Tues ay on a proposed constitutional mendmcnt to set guidelines for uture rcapportionments of the cgisiature In its first 90 minutes of de iate it disposed of one amend ment to allow any citizen to hallenge in the Iowa Supreme Jourt at any time an apportion ment plan adopted by the legis ature As passed by the Senate Vlarch 26 the measure would lave required such a challenge o be filed with the Iowa Su preme Court within 30 days aft er a legislatures apportion ment plan became law The amendment was adopted 7030 after the House rejected a proposal by Rep Ray Bailey DClarion that the time imit for filing the challenge ba made six months instead of 30 days Rep Charles Miller DBur ington sponsor of the amend ment that prevailed said he thought it should be made as brief broad and clear as pos sible that any person has the constitutional freedom to seek a court test of any apportionment adopted by the legislature at any time Rep James Denato Moines opened the discussion of the measure with an explana tion that recent decisions by federal courts on reapportion ment have been based on the equal protection of the laws provision of Ihe US Constitu tion The nations highest court he said has decided under this provision that population is the only basis for apportionment ot any state legislature Denato told fellow Democrats we have criticized the other party in election campaigns for several years for their failure to rcapportion Vow if we fail to do il ourselves that criticism will be rebounded upon our own leads The dcbale was expected to be much like April weather sometimes of lota of thunder but no really rugged onslaught of the elements Most of the heat was expected to come on two portions of the measure as it was passed 3424 by the Senate on March 26 One would permit subdistrict ing of counties electing more than one senator or representa tive An amendment offered by Rep James Wengert DSioux City would knock that out thus requiring all legislative candi dates in such districts to run at large The other would knock out of the measure language adopted in a Senate amendment pro posed by Sen David Stanley RMuscatine providing that if an amendment is adopted in the future to the federal Constitu tion to permit state legislatures to base apportionment on some basis other than population Io wa may do so An amendment signed by 51 Democratic representatives headed by Rep James Denato DDes Moines would eliminate this provision Sponsors of the amendment say that such con ditional language should not be put into the Iowa Constitution The legislature is under feder al court order to reapportion it self both on a temporary and permanent basis in accordance with the one man one vote principle laid down by the US Supreme Court ast fall The measure before the House Nine American helicopter crewmen were kilted by Viet Cong ground fire Monday during the operation Three Vietnam ese were killed
