The first step toward con- .sidering these standards came with the.appointment of a cab- inet-level Subcommittee on Edu- cation under the aegis of the Urban Affairs Council.

(AP) The New Hampshire House Is running out of revenue- raising measures to kill. It turned down a propos- al to legalize gambling and the greater portion of House Speaker Marshall Cobleigh's tax package Tuesday. Sales Tax BUI it was expected to kill a proposal for a 2 per cent sales tax, estimated to yield about ill million a year. Cobleigh warned that the state (aces a fiscal crisis and must come up with new revenue and the probability of a special sioh to balance the budget grows with the defeat of every money bill. The budget is out of balance anywhere from million to ?2fl million, depending on who supplies the figures, Gov Wal- ter Peterson, the House Appro- priations Committee or Cob- leigh. The bill to legalize all forms of state-operated gambling wal sidelined by a lopsided vote of after two hours of de- bate The House defeired consider- ation indefinitely, blocking fur- ther action for two yean. The bill proposed creation of a sweepstake; and gaming com- mission to operate all forms of gambling in casinos in commu- nities which 'voted to accept them. More_than 30 sears ago New Hampshire led New '-England In accepting parimiituel betting with horse racing; It became the first state in modern times to operate a sweepstakes lottery, based on horse races. An attempt by one! leaders of the .proposal, Rep. Robert Lawton, .R-Meredith, to send the measure, to a study commission never came to a vote He proposed a study by the Sweepstakes .Commission and four legislators of the feas- ibility of gambling in. New Hampshire. Rep. Susan McLane, R-Cpn- cord, who moved that the bill be postponed indefinitely, called th measure a "vicious and bad bill" and argued that gambling is linked with crime. She also said that Nevada, the only state, with legalized gambling, has the highest crime rate in the nation and that its gambling' capital, Las Vegas, has the highest suicide rate.of any city in the country. She added that Nevada, has had no new industry.in the last 50 years and that last year gambling brought only about million into that state's cof- fers. :She further labeled the bill "Pandora's steamer trunk." Rep. .James R-Salem, sponsor of the bill, said the bill would be an alternative to taxes in the only stale without a so- called broad based tax, a levy on; all sales or all incomes. Like Socialism Sayer likened bioad based taxes to "socialism and creep- ing'-communism He estimated that, m time, the gambling ca- sinos would have bi ought in million a year for the state treasury. He called the measure a New Hampshire "development -bill" and said that among other things it would attract tourists and the major airlines House Majority Leader Har- lan Logan, R-Plamfield, ridi- culed the bill as "the first broad based sin tax bill ever passed He said that if the bill had passed he would have offered amendments to legalize instant divorce, pornography, drugs, prostitution and "abortion mills." Cobleigh noted that under tht rules, further tax bills cannot be introduced at the present tet- sion. "It will take a'ctiange in rules, but we'll have to keep calling special sessions until'the rules are he said. The House approved one part of Cobleigh's package, a propos- al to double corporation filing fees The change would product about during the two- year budget period But the House'killed his pro- posal to impose a 10 per cent amusement tax, estimated yield million for the fiscal W- ennlum. And the larger chamber killed a proposal to increase the fran- chise tax on public utilities from 9 per cent to 10 per cent. The tax also would have been extended to the telephone com- pany. An attempt to get a ruling from the state Supreme Court on the constitutionality of tht measure was defeated 178-144.
