The basis of calculating the maximum of expenditures for any given year is the preceding United States census. This would mean that increases could be made only once each ten years. The 1930 census gave Texas a population of 5,800,000 plus The adoption of the amendment in its present for'-'m would limit State govern- ment expenditures to approxi- mately $58,000,000 annually. The adoption of this amendment would bring expenditures back to the level of 1927. Doubtless some amendments will be made efore final action is taken. Another amendment has been introduced in the House that would lower the limit of State ad valoren (property) tax to 57 cents on the $100 valuation. At present the limit is 77 cents, di- vided as follows, 35 cents for schools, 35 cents for general rev. enue purposes and 7 cents Con- federate pension t a x. This amendment would leave t h e school and Confederate pensions levies as they are and would re- duce the amount of the levy for general purposes to 15 cents, in- stead of the present figure of 35 cents. These two amendments, with others which are under consider- ation, providing for reorganize. tion of county government, to- gether with legislation proposing a reorganization of the common school system, constitute t h e major items in an economy pro. gram intended to extend beyond the period of the present emer. geacy, "WHERE MALAKOFF TRADES" I |l Saturday and Nonday Cash Special!
