Of late years, several sections of that great commonwealth has sold their indepen- dence for Federal appropriations to inaugurate government ownership and development of hydro-electric pro- jects in the state. Loss of independence came when Federal bureaus began telling where, when, how and to whom such hydro- electric power could be sold, and at what price. A state senate investigating com- mittee has been inquiring into the finances and workings of the Brazes River Conservation and Reclamation District, a Federally-dominated pow- er project. The net result is that it finds that agencies in Washington now crack the whip. Local communi- ties pay dearly for tax exemptions granted Federally-subsidized plants, and for lost taxes whick privately- developed industries would have paid. When n individual, a coinmun- ity or a state accepts public gifts or loans, the donor dictates the terms. Lost independence of the recipient is the price paid.
