Mr. Krum moved to take from the table the resolution offered

Whereas, The tax and revenue laws of this State are in a condition unsatisfactory to the people, and in their operation, it is claimed, distribute the burden of taxation unequally, and to which the attention of the Legislature has been called by a special message of the Governor; and,

Whereas, They should be carefully examined with a view to their modification and revision upon a just and wise basis;

Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That a joint committee is hereby constituted, consisting of three members of the Senate, to be appointed by the President thereof, and four members of the Assembly, to be appointed by the Speaker thereof, with full power and authority to sit at such places in the State as they may appoint, during the remainder of the year 1899, for the purpose of examining and considering the subject of the taxation of property within this State, and all the ways and means of deriving the revenue required to pay the expenses of the State and of the several civil divisions thereof.

The said joint committee is hereby authorized and empowered to require the attendance of witnesses, to subpoena and examine them, to take testimony, to send for persons and papers within this State, to employ stenographers, clerical service, counsel and experts as shall be necessary in their examination or inquiry, and may investigate the tax and revenue laws and the operation thereof in other States, and obtain any and all information bearing upon such matters from any and all other sources which may be available, to the end that just and equitable changes in the tax and revenue laws may be reported by said committee to the Legislature for its consideration and enactment. Said committee shall report to the Legislature not later than January 15, 1900.

The expenses of said committee, its counsel, experts, stenographers and clerical service shall be paid by the Treasurer, upon the warrant of the Comtproller, from an appropriation to be hereafter made by the Legislature for such purpose.
