ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS In preparation of this report the Commission has had invaluable assistance from many sources for which it is deeply grateful.

Particular recognition is given to the Pennsylvania Economy League for putting its research facilities at the disposal of the Commission. The Committee on State Finance was aided materially by the able assistance of Dr. David H. Kurtzman and Mr. David R. Baldwin. The Committee on Local Government received many valuable services from Mr. John W. Ingram, Mr. Robert S. Lewis, and Mr. Fred E. Hershey.

The Commission is also indebted to Dr. John H. Ferguson, Budget Secretary, Representative Norman Wood, Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, Mr. Truman B. Thompson, Secretary of the House Committee on Appropriations, Attorney General Thomas D. McBride, Deputy Attorney General Harrington Adams and Deputy Attorney General George Keitel for their generous assistance in its studies in the field of state finance.

Numerous individuals and organizations have been helpful in studying preliminary proposals and making their comments available to the Committees. George F. Baer Appel, Esq., Mr. S. Edward Moore, Parliamentarian of the House of Representatives, Thomas Raeburn White, Esq., the Pennsylvania State Chamber of Commerce and the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs gave the Commission much of their time.

The Bureau of Municipal Affairs was most helpful, as were all other departments within the state government to whom a request for assistance was addressed.

The Commission recognizes the generosity of the Charles Fremont Taylor Trust of Philadelphia which made a grant of $5,000 available to the Commission for research on the subject of home rule for cities and other local communities.

The Commission appreciates, too, the encouragement received from many sources, particularly The Pennsylvania League of Women Voters. The interest shown by many organizations, at the public hearings and subsequent thereto, has been stimulating.

The Commission is grateful for all of these expressions of interest in its work.
