The plan is the result of an 18 month study by the Texas Rural Development Commission and it was made public during the Governor's conference on Rural Development. The conference marked the official end of the Commission's activities. The recommendation related to non-profit water supply corporations is included in the General Government section of the Commission's report. A proposed amendment to the Texas Constitution, number nine, will appear on the November 6 ballot that will give the Texas Legislature the authority to write legislation exempting non-profit water supply corporations from property or ad valorem taxes. Explaining its stand on the issue, the Commission report states, "This taxation, now greatly hindering rural development because of the constraints it places on developing water sources, does not take into account the vital fact that non-profit water corporations are in business just to serve the members domestic water. These corporations are owned by the people they serve and operate in a manner similar to municipal systems and water districts but they are taxed and do not have the power to tax." Other major features of the Commission's report include Economic Development, Housing, Natural Resources, Transportation, Health, Education and Human Resources. Nutrition emphasized This Halloween, take a nutritious treat to the dinner table, suggests Mrs. Gwendolyne Clyatt. "Prepare a favorite recipe for chill con came," the consumer msLvketing information specialist, Texas Extension Service, Texas A&M University System, instructed. "Top each piping hot bowl of chili with a slice of American cheese cut in the shape of a pumpkin or Jack-o-lantern. "Don't worry about wasting cheese. Just blend the scraps into the ehill--stirring over low heat until the eheese melts," she added. J ............... II----I ...................................................... ; .....
