Republicans claimed the House labor committee broke so the Democrats on the committee could caucus. They said the Democrats booted Republican legislators, reporters and lob- byists out of the committee meeting for nine minutes without first having voted to hold a secret session. ,ROAD FUNDS A consulting firm on the road use tax fund has called for a seven year phase-in of a new formula. Currently, the state gets 47 percent of the road fund, counties 38 per- cent, and cities 18 percent. The consulting firm is sug- gesting a 52-29-19 split. Last year the Legislature adopted a self imposed deadline, March 31, 1990. If a new allocation formula is not in law by the deadline, a portion of the road use tax fund will be se- questered until one is in place. There is talk among legisla- tive leaders of allowing this issue to spill over until next year. STROMER'S VIEWS This is the 82nd time mem- bers of the House and Senate have gathered at the state capitol for a regular session of the Iowa Legislature. It is the 22nd time that Rep. Delwyn Stromer of Garner has been part of this function. Many subjects discussed are similar to the issues dis- cussed in 1969, 1975 or 1981, said Stromer, who is the Re- publican floor leader. "School izer and pesticide application and the machinery used have changed significantly in the past 20 years, but the finished product, an ear of corn, usu- ally looks the same. Some- times it may have fewer rows or shorter kernels, but we usually get some sort of ear." Stromer said it's too early to tell what kind of year will be produced by the 1989 session. "Legislative action over the next few months will deter- mine the final product." Many lawmakers are studying the issue of school finance, some in an effort to protect their local school dis- tricts. "I discovered early in the process that the 17th Dis- trict, which I represent, has some school districts that are allowed to spend as little as $3,000 per student, while others may spend as much as $4,000. "Any plan considered should include several key points. First, equal dollars for every student, or a constitu- tional reason for the disparity. Second, a 'hold harmless' that will guarantee high spending districts no fewer dollars than they received the previous year. They will be allowed additional growth when the per student cost is equal to the state cost. This should occur for most high spending dis- tricts within a year or two. "Third, districts spending below the state cost will be allowed additional growth over a period of several years to reach the state average cost, Fourth, districts should not be subject to dramatic in- creases in property tax be- cause of the new formula. My proposal would actually lower property taxes in high spend- ing districts and raise them ers as much as $300. Funding for this disparity should be included in the new school aid formula." Stromer said some propos- als being floating around the rotunda ignore several of these "Education Finance 101" basics. As a result, he said, developing a fair pro- posal that can pass both houses and receive the gover- nor's signature will be a slow process. ECONOMIC FORECAST Iowa's economy will con- tinue to grow over the next two years, but at a slower pace. That's the prediction of the Iowa Economic Forecast, a publication of the Institute for Economic Research at the University of Iowa. Employ- ment is forecast to grow by 12,000 workers over the next two years. A tightening sup- ply of labor and increases m the Consumer Price Index are expected to cause wages to increase at a faster rate in 1990. Iowa farm income is forecast to decline by about l0 percent in 1989. Mildred Birks, 74 MANILLA - Mildred, daughter of Lewis and Mary Thomsen Kuchel, was born Nov. 7, 1914 near Irwin.
