Donohue's measure would authorize school districts to discharge teachers for incom- petency; also for the purpose of reducing costs during periods when funds are short. The tenure law was hard won. The two teachers' or- ganizations, Washington Edu- cation Association and State Federation of Teachers, have guarded it jealously for years. They will be certain to battle any attempt to water it down. Not only do they pack political clout rivaling and the House. Rasmussen consequently has decided to support the initiative to outlaw hitch- hiking which was filed last week. He twice had outstand- ing success with initiatives several years ago. One legal- ized sale of colored margarine. The other enacted the joint tenancy law. Charge It To Energy Legislation responding to the energy crisis started coming into the Legislature well in advance of the con- vening date. One of the bills ei SEATTLE Washington taxpayers will find a number of timesaving improvements on 1973 individual income tax returns as well as shortened and simplified "instructions, Seattle District Director of Internal Revenue Michael Sassi said today. Steps taken by the IRS to improve tax forms, Sassi said, "should enable many tax- payers to complete their returns with less difficulty and in less time than last year." So that taxpayers can file early and receive refunds in less time than those filing closer to the April 15 due date, he urged employers to dis- tribute W-2 withholding forms as soon as possible. W-2's for 1973, generally, must be dis- tributed by Jan. 31, 1974. Most taxpayers who file in January receive their refunds in four to five weeks, while later filets may have to wait as long as eight weeks, because of the greater volume'of returns received. The major improvements in the 1973 tax forms are: -elimination of Schedule B for reporting details of divi- dends and interest; -elimination of the require- ment to list contributions for which the taxpayer has can- celled checks or receipts; -elimination of the require- ment to list names and dates for '~ payments to ~octot;s, dentists and hos- pitals; -reduction in the number of revenue-sharing questions to a single item; and elimination of income limi- tations for filing the 1040A short form. In discussing the instruc- tions for 1973 returns, Mr. Sassi said the IRS has not only shortened the instructions, but has rewritten much of the material in easier-to-under- stand language. Most taxpayers who filed last year have received their 1973 tax forms in the mail. Taxpayers can obtain addi- tional forms and instructions throughout the filing period at most banks, postal service stations tOOg Hm 67 So. Isl: necessary budget information is already there; that there isn't any need for a split session. But the legislative leaders aren't ready to accept the Governor's figures. Even some of the leading Republi- can lawmakers have ques- tioned his revenue projec- tions. Bills, Bills, Bills While waiting for their own budget figures, the legislators needn't be idle. They have plenty of other matters to keep them occupied, including such priority subjects as the energy crunch. But exclusive of priority legislation, there already were 247 bills in the House Rules Committee when the Legis- lature convened, and more have been sent there since, each to await a place on the calendar for action. More than half of them probably still will be waiting when the Legisla- ture adjourns, but it is probable that at least 100 of them will be acted upon. The Senate didn't have any bills in its Rules Committee to start with when it convened. It had sent all of its measures back to their committees of origin But there are more than 50 in Rules by now. have been chosen to partici- insisting all along that all the the draft copy of the Wahluke pate in the All-State Band and slope Multiple Land Use the All-State chorus in Development report with Yakima.
