Newspaper bill postponed

By MICHAEL ARKUSH'
Due to lack of support among news-
paper officials, state Rep. Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) has postponed
until January a bill that would have
given state newspapers nearly com-
plete exemption from police searches.
Bullard's bill, previously scheduled
for discussion in the House Civil Rights
Committee3 was devised to counteract
the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June
that allows police to search newspaper
offices, needing just a warrant.
THE COURT decision makes police
searches possible when "There is a
reasonable cause to believe that the
specific things to be searched for or
seized are located on the property

which entry is sought."
Dan Sharp, Bullard's legislative adie,
said yesterday the lack of support from
the Michigan Press Association (MPA)
and some of the state's newspapers
convinced supporters to wait until next
year when much broader bcking is ex-
pected.
SHARP SAID additional support
could be acquired by widening the bill
to include businesses and corporations
also affected by the court ruling.
He said MPA and state newspapers
complained the bill would pinpoint
newspapers for privileges while
businesses, corporations and even in-
dividuals would still be accountable to
the ruling.

'It is not that they are opposed to the
bill but just that they think that if they
can be singled out for privileges, then
they can also be singled out for restric-
'tions," said Sharp.
BULLARD SAID a full-scale cam-
paign to attract support for the bill
would soon begin. It would include at-
tempts to receive backing from the
American Civil Liberties Union and the
Newspaper Publishers Association.'
Sharp said the bill's supporters
originally intended to broaden the
package and get it passed before the
current House session ends in Decem-
ber. They now fear too quick action
could danger its success, he said.
"By bringing it back up in January

and getting necessary additional sup-
port, we can be more sure of its
passage," he said.
The state's newspapers will have to
abide by the court ruling, at least for
another. few -months until a new
measure is passed.
"It seems that they have sacrificed
their freedom and First Amendment
for a few months so they can stay clear
of any state imposed restrictions which
they fea," said Sharp.
The Pryenees, which divide France
from Spain, stretch 270 miles from the
Mediterranean to the southeastern cor-
ner of the Bay of Biscay. The mountain
chain covers an area of 13,000 square
miles.

AATA ponders changes

(Continued from Page 1)
are attempting to "get things back to
normal." .Ursprung's suggestions may
make adjustments in the expected
'normal situation."
URSPRUNG HAS suggested the con-
version of some Dial-a-Ride routes to
main line bus routes, the reduction of
off-peack service levels, and the cut-
back of peak hour service.
The possibility of a cutback in peak
hour service has produced many public
complaints. Those who rely on AATA
buses every day would be deeply affec-
ted by this service reduction.
The AATA must meet certain federal
service level requirements. Ursprung
suggested changes in two other areas.
ONE POSSIBLE change would be to
restrict eligibility for specialized Dial-

a-Ride service for the handicapped, en-
titling only those with limited mobility
to the service.
Another suggestion would be a
modification of service standards, in-
volving the alteration of ride times and
the coordination of transfers.
The board will consider these
possible service adjustments and
decide on the proposals by its October 4
meeting.
