the mea sures The Democrats basically op pose this type of Schroeder said but realize hat if it means an increase for the working man it has got to be accepted by By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Writer DES MOINES Atty Gen Norman Erbe Monday struck a crushing blow to the Present operation of fiscal igents in Iowa in one of the most sig nificant opinions he has made ince becoming attorney gen that a fiscal agent isually a bonding company cannot enter into a contract with a city or town to handle such chores as compilation of acts figures and data on a proposed bonding issue and sub sequently bid on or purchase all of a bond issue This far reaching opinion affect several hundred owa communities The opinion skirts the issue as o whether or not the appoint ment of a fiscal agent is justi icd for performing various ies in connection with a pro osed bond issue However it s crystal clear that if a com munity does appoint such a fis al agent it cannot lawfully ntertain his bid or contract ale of the bonds to such fiscal AS TO OTHER political sub divisions Erbe said the an swer is even more clearly in the negative This office has for a number of years been of the opinion that such a contract with a county is Erbe also said that school districts cannot employ fiscai agents Sen David Sbaff requested the opinion was the chief sponsor of a bill which would have banned use of agents The ney generals opinion virtually will have the same effect as the bill if it had passed Another important point made by Erbe was that even if facts exist warranting the appoint ment of a fiscal agent such ap pointment must be for indefi nite tenure rather than with ref irence to a particular bond is During the Senate debate Shaff charged that one day fis cal agents sit in with munici palities and arrange the terms f their bond issues including maturity and interest rates and then the next day they put on a different suit sit on the other side of the table and buy the bonds often without competition from other bidders HE ESTIMATED that MOO million worth of bonds are sold annually in the state and that payment of excessive interest rates on them is Senate Democratic floor lead er George OMalley Des Among the other matters said the purpose of the peeled to come before the IcgisjShaff bill was to corner lators Ibis week Schrocdc added is a number of budge matters including appropria lions for state departments to make himself leader of the Mohammedan world which in cludes Pakistan with a popula tion approximately four times greater than Egypts and about as great as the
