Report From Various State
Institutions for Past Five
Years Failed—Many Bills In
Failure of the state senate to report
out and pass the codes as revised by
Commissioner 13. \\\ Oppenheim and
approved by the house is holding back
the latter body in speeding up with
pending legislation. The reference
committee of the house reported that
for this reason bills calling for amend
ments to the present laws cannot he re
ported back to the house. The revised
code must be moved out of the way
first. Until it is no action can be taken
on the big administration bill calling
for the co-ordinating and consolidation
of state government departments.
It is understood in legislative circles
then' is no serious objection to the re
vised code in the senate but the com
mittee in charge desires t«> give it a
thorough examination before it makes
a favorable report.

The house spent most of tlie morn

motion of Representative Shearer <-f

to substitute two for live years but that
failed. Representatives Morgan. Mc
