HARBOR AP In formal ceremonies were to be held Saturday on the gleaming white memorial which marks the battleship at DES MOINES The Iowa Taxpayers Association says any increase in state gov ernment s p e n d i n gt in Iowa should be limited to new reve nue produced by economic growth in the state In a policy statement adopted at its annual convention Friday the association said economic growth is generating enough money to meet foreseeable state government requirements with out tax increases Iowas greatest need the as sociation said is more jobpro ducing industry to retain in the younf people who have gone through Iowas tax sup ported educational system s economic It said the tax system now existing at the state level is conducive to industrial and busi ness expansion but the continu ingj rise in local property tax levjeshurts industrial develop ment prospects in many com munities The challengete the policy statement said to find a way to local property tax relief with out endangering the state tax structure Iowa now has that is so favorable for industrial It said this can be done by slowing down local government spending speeding the broaden ing of the property tax base and shifting more of local fbv ernment costs to some nonprop erty tax source with controls so that property taxes will actually be replaced The association opposed a withholding system for collec tion of state income taxes but called for use of data processing equipment for aggressive col lection of income taxes It also opposed the pending federal income tax reduction bill The association1 said the measure as passed by the House only gives lip service to true rate reform and contains no control device for limiting future spending to avoid vdeficits State Comptroller Marvin Sel den told the association ways must be found to do routine work more efficiently reducing administrative costs without cutting services He said a with holding system for collecting state income taxes would be most useful Speaker of the House Robert Naden RWebster City accused Democratic Gov Harold Hughes complicated the 1963 legisla tures effort to pass a property tax relief bill with a growing list of requirements in order to receive his support for such legislation Naden added that most of Hughes recommendations for property tax relief would have put more of the burden on busi ness agriculture and industry Lt Gov William Mooty R Grundy Center disagreed with Seldens estimate that the state general fund balance will be about million at the end of the present biennium June 30 1965 He saift he thinks the bal ance will be at least to million The association reelected all its officers They are Walter Cochran Waterloo president Murray Nelson Newton vice president Harold Ranes Des Moines and
