The Choice Is Yours
On November 6, qualified electors will have an opportunity to vote on putting into the State Con
stitution a plan of reapportionment as adopted by the Mississippi Legislature. This plan is known as Sen
ate Concurrent Resolution 101.
I here are many reasons why the electorate in the smaller populated counties, urban areas and yes, even
in the largest cities, should favor this plan.
I he choice is will \ ou vote for the legislatures plan or take a chance on accepting judge Horton’s
plan or one that is w oiser In other vvoids, it is not a matter of whether you were against reapportion
ment or favoied the legislature reapportioning by some other plan, but whether vou take reapportion
ment by the Mississippi Legislature or in all probability Judge Horton’s plan.
Reasons Why We Should Support
The Legislat ure's Plan Of
Reapportionment
1. Holmes County is a rural county. Under the proposed reapportionment plan, Holmes County will
have two representatives and one senator in the State Legislature.
t
2. Under this plan, rural counties will still have a voice in our legislature.
3. It will not be all that expensive. The cost will amount to about 4/10 of one percent of the state budget.
If the legislature is reapportioned as the court says, it could,
(a) mean that farmers would pay sales tax on feed, fertilizer and machinery. * ~~
(b) That the rural county would lose a portion of the State Aid Road Fund that now goes to farm mar
ket roads.
(c) That Livestock would be taxed in the future.
We urge all qualified voters to vote on this important issue. Let your choice be known to all.
