S TAMPA On March 9. 1976, a pro.
posed constitutional amendment will ap-
pear on Presidential preference primary
ballots.
. According to Sen. Philip Lewis,
D-West Palm Beach, there "is not one
issue more important to people than this
Issue."
The amendment will allow water
management.districts (another part of
the bureaucratic process) to levy a tax
on property in their areas to finance
water planning and control operations.
SSen. Lewis has urged his fellow law-
makers to educate Floridians on the Im-
portance of this amendment. Southwest
Florida Management District, and Cen-
tral and Southern Flood Control District
had been levying such a tax until a court
told them it was not in their power to do
' this,
The other districts do not levy proper
ty taxes and receive monies annually
from the state.
What really galls me, is that our own

I personally am opposed to any more
financing of planning operations of any
kind. The City of Tampa as well as most
cities In Florida have a pretty competent
water department and seem to be doing
an excellent job. As for flood controls,
that should be up to the state to take
careof.
I think Senator Lane oe the pubei
an explanation.

mocratle Senator Julian Lane is argu-
against educating the public about
amendment saying the mood was
lst any form of taxation.
He told his colleagues "It we-try t6
cate them we're going to lose it If
leave on there and keep It low, people

Obviously, Senator Lae Is not too
lcerned in leting the people know
at they will be voting on by keeping
ta issues away from us. I will agree
h him o one thing, the mood is very
