Ginsberg To Prefile Bill
For Tax Revision
Assemblyman Martin Ginsberg
said he plans to pre- file a bill to
create a Temporary Nonpartisan
State Commission to review
and Study the Tax Structure
of the state. As a starter, the
commission would study and work
for elimination of such patchwork
tax legislation as the New York
City Commuter Income Tax and
inequities inthe Sales Tax.
" There is a great need for such
non- partisan study, " Ginsberg
said. " The best evidence of this
are the present record high budgets
in the state, New York City,
Nassau County and the local
school districts. There is no
doubt in anyone's mind that next
year's state, city, county and
school budgets will hit new record
high peaks of spending."

Albany Open Line
By Alex Rankin, New York State Press
Association's Albany Correspondent
While Republicans who— as
this column predicted— recaptured
the state Assembly are
wearing smiles, taxpaying voters
should give some thought to this
Has one evil been traded for
There is no denying that for the
most part Democratic Assemblymen
outside New Tflhrk City were
at the mercy of city interests.
Now Republicans control both
the Senate and the Assembly.
The big question is whether or
not the legislature will become a
r u b b e r stamp for Governor
Rockefeller, a Republican.
It is a fact that Rockefeller
is a very strong governor.
Right about now someone will
suggest that this doesn't make
much difference because Rockefeller
is going to wind up with a
cabinet post in the Nixon administration.
This columnist is willing to go
out on a limb again:
Don't bet on it.
A few weeks ago I had lunch in
Albany with a man who is not only
close to the governor, but whose
business it is to gauge the mood
and character of his boss.
. " A cabinet post for Rockefeller
if Nixon is elected?" he was
" Look," he replied with a grin,
' you know the governor, can you
picture Rockefeller taking orders
Can you picture, he went on,
Nixon calling the governor and
telling him he can come over to
the White House and pick up his
The answer has to be no— unless
you are writing a political
So for now— because fiction
has a way of becoming fact in
politics despite the best logic and
reasoning— the rubber stamp
question is a reasonable one.
The answer is that there is a
reasonable possibility that the
majority which will be led by
Perry B. Duryea Jr. of Montauk
will not become a rubber- stamp.
Duryea will go to Albany in
January with a three- vote margin.
Who is willing to bet that there
are not three Republican
mavericks in the ranks?
At the 1968 session of the Legislature
the then Speaker Anthony
J. Travia had a six- vote margin.
Travia put in an 18- hour day.
About 17 of those hours were put
in trying to hold his ranks together
on critical votes. At the
end of the session his hands
These mavericks are going to
make Duryea think twice, one
hopes, before agreeing, for example,
to any sizeable state budget
hike next year.
There is another factor.
Mostly it is in the mind because
few are willing to say anything
worth repeating out loud,
but there is the feeling Duryea
has his eye on Rockefeller's job.
But so does Lt. Governor Malcolm
Wilson presides over the state
It all means the 1969 session is
going to be anything but a picnic
