Our counselor, Mrs. Ramsey, tells us tha.t a Iarge number of Juniors and Seniors have made application ,this week to write the ACT test on Saturday, Feb- ruary 24. Seventh and eighth graders by Rep. Tommy Walker TAXES .... TAXES .... TAXES .... the most discussed topic in the Capitol for the past week. It seems evident th.a,t we will have some sort of tax cut this year. TheLre ,have been at least a dozen ,bills filed con- cerning some method of tax reduction. Some of the more liberal lean toward a.n enormous cut as high as $50 million for the year 1973. The likelihood .that sales tax will be cut s remote.; however, several mem- bers of the Legislature are press- ing for 4/e% sales tax. The final outcome will most likely be a $15 to $20 million cut of income tax giving a greater allowance for dependent children. It is the opinion that the treasury re- serves are .temporary and a big ax cut now could result in a tax increase in 1974 and 1975. Almost every tax-supported institution is looking for bigger appropriations and bigger pay- checks. It is conceivable that larger appropriations will be made to some of the more worthy -- colleges, schools and ,o forth. A bill has been in.tro- duced in the Senate and. the I House .that will give tuition I grants .to students attending I private colleges. Senate Bill No. 11526 and ouse Bill No. 479 ]could be a big ,help to students of such schools as Mississippi College and .Millsaps. There will be a bill introduced next week to pay a veteran's ,bonus to all living veterans re- siding in the state .of which there are about 200,000. A cash bonus of $100 each wilt take approximately $20 million That would be a :big piece of tax m, oney put back in the tax- payer's pocket: however there is a lack of ent'husiasm over this idea with many members of the Legislature. Reapportionment is .on again and brought about quite a hassle on the floor. The United States Supreme Court ordered reappor- ,tionment of legislative districts. This court order is directed generally toward Hinds County has the legislature been at such odds as they appear to be wi, th the governor in this current session. In recent days, the governor has removed Rep. George Payne Cossar, a legislative veteran, from two key positions. He also bumped Sen. B. G. Perry from his post :cn the building com- mission. This suggests a break from he has managed to make some enemies in the legislature who are going to try to show him their muscle." The feeling of independence is running str.onger in the House than it is in the sta,te Senate. But, it is a fact that Gov. Waller i going to have to contend with both houses. What has triggered ,the sit- uation between the executive past tradi.tion. It also uggests and the legislative branches is that the governor :has little re- obscure. Apparently, it has come gard for the legislative prerog- i 'rom an accumulation of cir- i atives which have been held in umstances over the past 18 high esteem by former chief executives. But the rift, whether 'the gov- ernor knows it or not, runs much deeper than this. In fact, 'the passage of a $16 million tax cut by the House of Representatives last week was a direc.t slap at Gov. Bill Waller, who, only the day before, declared himself in favor of holding the line on any tax reductions. Gov. Waller denied this lhe day after, saying that it was a mere coincidence. But the fact j is that ,the tax cut may never have come if .the governo had months. Gov. Waller, to his credit, is evidently 'trying to do a good job. But, he failed to take into account the jealously guarded prerogatives of the legislature. The legislative branch has its own view of how the governmen ou:ht to be run. And, it is now evident that Gov. Waller has failed to give this fact the con- sideration it is due. That fact, no doubt, figures in ,the growing estrangement be- tween the legislative and the executive branches in Missis- sippi. not announced against it. This is not to say that the Legislative veterans don't fault n legislature will automatically the governor's intentions. But, reac against anything that Gov. he has managed to bruise his Waller propo:ses. relations .wi,th the legislative But it does suggest that he branch to a degree that is un- burden of proof in the matter paralleled in recent times. .of legislative programs wi!l have "I think the governor is sin-Ito be on, 'the Governors side core," one veteran state senator ! in the future if they are to get said.
