Tommy Walker I am glad to report that the teae,hers' pay kaise bill passed the House by an overwhelming majority of 1(]19-7, and there are many people proud to hear this news. Amendments were offered a.nd defeated o raise the pay of school bus crivers and lunch- rozm worker:s. T1]e bill was de- occurred in ] 968 when only some of the .teachers received t, he hll:." increase. Some observers of the debate. and recorcted vote have mde : s o m e interesting statemen:ts such as. "There seemed to be 109 politicians in the House an 7 States,men." Informed sources have indi- cated that several State .,Agen- cies will have less money on bated on the floor for more which o operate due o a cut 'than three hours .and was ahe of $5 million pltts in Federal Aid. only legislation considered ,by The State will probably have o. the House on February 1st. Ac- make up this deficit.

Other categories were not even considered in this bill. Section 1, Paragraph (B) of the bill is quoted below: "(B) Suppe,rtive services. In addition to other funds allowed in this section, each scho:l dis- trict shall be allotted Six Hun- dred Dollars ($6ff.00) per teach- er unit for use in supportive services. The sum:s allotted may be used for the following pur- 30ES: "(1) Salaries of any of the following s c,h o o i personnel: teachers; librarians; guidance personnel; lunchroom penson- nel; school nurses: principals and assistant principals. "(2) Purchase. installation and maintenance of audi:visual materials, teaching supplies, textbooks, library books and supplies, .and other equipment used or usable in classroom in- struction. "(3) School building improve- m,.n,t and mamtenace of any kind including but not limited to ,heating, plumbing, air con- ditioning, electrical installa- tions and repairs.

The first one to report was the Joint Ses.sion called Dr. Larry G. Rohrman,. Pastor :' of the First Baptist Church of, Jackson, who has the dl'sUnc, lion of being the third Missis, sippian, in :histxry ,to h,ave been selected by he National Junior Chaznber of Commerce as one of the te outstand,lng men in America.

The .second Joint Session was, called for the Governor's d- dress to the House'and Senate . .reiterating some of his desires ii m connection with the highvay construction and cautioning the, members :of the 'Legislature o i be conservative in expenditures in light of the supposed $80 rail, lion surplus, but emphasizing the need for expenditures of $25 .i' million for tourlst informatio'  booths and attractions.

This was little to the ulf Coas legislators who .ae .astute enough .to know that legislators from other toarts of the state are not likely to mit such a whopping sum. In s.hort, the issue raises sectional differences that have ,been muted for the ,past few years. Moreover. it opened a Pan- d,ra's Box of complaints about the projected state constructi,o. Gov. Waller jumped into the .act, making it clear that the delays were not his fault and calling 'for an appointive State Highway Commission. And various legislators, con- governor.." he added. In all fairness, there are many complexities in high.way fund- rag, many of them not cl, early understood by the aver'age leg- islator. Fz,r one thing, the act that authorized the $,90 million bond issue provides for a rev- enue type bond, with a gas tax that becomes effective July 1, 1973. A stipulation in the law is that 'the state have a one.-year ,history lr gas collec.tion after that date before any of those bonds may be offered for sale.
