were generall near seasonal levels Light ra fell in the Pacific Northwest Democrats irritated by Republican slowing By WILLIAM L EBERLINE DBS MOINES AP Irrita tion is growing among some members of the Democratic ma jority in the Iowa Legislature over what they consider Repub lican tactics to slow progress of the session Thy feel the Republican strategy is to impede Demo cratic objectives so that they can carry to the voters in 1966 a picture of inefficiency on the part of the Democratic con trolled General Assembly A number of House members also are irked over what they consider Republican needling about their performance in tha first five weeks of the session There has been no overt clash over the issue except for a few flurries during the heat of floor debate But a number of Democrats in both houses have privately ex pressed resentment at the Re publican tactics and threatened to fight back if the situation con tinues Senate Majority Floor Leader Andrew Frommelt DDubuque reportedly was miffed Friday because debate took too much time on a proposed constitution al amendment to give the gov ernor power to veto individual items in appropriations bills He had wanted to get out of the way also another proposed constitutional change to give cities and towns home rule But by the time the item veto meas ure was passed there wasnt time Some Democrats blamed the number of amendments filed by Republicans for the time consuming debate Frommelt brushed aside Re publican pleas to delay the item veto amendment for further study saying There have been suggestions that this ses sion will last through next sum mer As floor leader I will tell you its not going to And during a brief discussion of the home rule amendment when Sen David Stanley R Muscafine offered from the floor a clarifying amendment Frommelt snapped Lets cut down on the steaks and libations and do our home work His allusion was to the many lobbyists who virtually every night take various legislators out for dinner and drinks and therby cut into the lime they have to study pending legisla tion In the House the irritation of the Democrats has led to a couple of exchanges on the floor over what they regarded as Re publican needling One of the exchanges was sparked by a Democrat Rep Charles Uban of Cedar Falls when he moved to send back to committee for further study a bill to change the formula for paying unemployment compen sation and thereby increase benefits to the unemployed worker House Minority Floor Leader Floyd Edgington R Sheffield scolded the House where Dem ocrats hold a 10123 majority for poor committee work He noted that this was the eighth bill in less than five weeks of the session that has needed to go back to committee after it reached the floor He pointed out that among those that have been returned to committee was the explosive measure to repeal the Iowa righttowork law which labor wants repealed and Gov Har old Hughes wants only to amend to permit union shop and agency shop labor contracts If we are going to operate a good efficient legislature Edgington said the commit tees are going to have to study this legislation better before it reaches the floor This brought a rejoinder from Rep Minnette Doderer DIowa City I am tired she said of being lectured about the wonderful things we are not do ing She said that during the spe cial session on reapportionment last spring I spent many many hours in committee dis cussing many reapportionment plans Then the majority party had a caucus and in only 10 minutes the committee in exec utive session approved a reap portionment plan which was re ported out to the floor Her allusion to an executive session touched upon the issue of legislative secrecy which the Democrats have pledged to end They have done so by opening all meetings of House commit Senate committee ses sions already were the press and public Republicans contend however that because so many decisions are made in Democratic caucuses there real ly now is more legislative secre cy than under Republicancon trolled past sessions Edgington at one point sought to bring up on the floor a Sen atepassed bill to eliminate a re quirement in the Jaw that the Senate be in executive session when it considered appointees to state jobs He said there had been a plea from the Democratic leadership in the Senate for Republican help in passing the bill and he was offering that aid House Majority Floor Leader Elroy Maule DOnawa rejected the move at that time but a couple of days later the House passed the measure and sent it to the governor As Rep John Duffy DDubuque put it a matter of hours didnt make any difference in passage of bill In justice to the Republicans it must be said that many of their efforts are helpful how ever galling to the Democratic majority The version of the item veto amendment that was adopted by the Senate was offered by Sen David Stanley RMuscatine as an amendment to the measure proposed by the Governmental Affairs Committee Even From mlt conceded it was an im provement And in the House at weeks end there were indications of a more cautious approach of com mittees toward recommending for passage the measure aimed DEMOCRATS Continued on 2 The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors Home Edition VOL 105 MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY FEBRUARY 13 1965 UOc a Paper Consists oi Two One
