What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

This pro­ posal, if passed, would put the question of enacting a Hard Rock Mining Severance Tax before the voters on the 1984 General Elec­ tion ballot The bill is presently tabled by the House Taxation committee A hearing was held on HB 820 March 7 where those opposing the tax claimed it would discourage hard rock mining in the state, while those in favor purported the amount col­ lected would not be enough to hurt the companies. The original draft of the bill pro- vided for a 314 percent severance tax on palladium, platinum, gold, silver and copper if the annual value ■ of tbtrpfOdoa exceeded $ I million and-from 114 to 214 percent if the value is between $250,000 and $1 million. Provisions for a tax credit to the company contributing money to local governments before mining operations begin are also included. Before enactment, the tax would have to be approved by voters, however. If this piece of legislation is passed by the House there could be a second hearing before the Senate committee assigned the bilL FLOWER & GARDEN Potting Soil & Peat Pots Plant Starter Trays Fertilizers Everything you need to get your garden plants started!!
