Discussion continued yesterday
in the State Senate over a weak
pollution control measure, that
has been denounced by a coalition
of fourteen environmental groups.
"Senate bill 1278 is not an en-
vironmental protection bill," said
John Watts, chairman of the En-
vironmental Law Society (ELS).
"It is a badly written law which
would leave us worse off than we
The proposed bill is based on a
stronger air pollution control
package passed nine months ago
by the state House. The original,
legislation, House bill 4260, re-
ceived high praise from environ-
mental groups in the state. The
substituted measure deletes all but
one section of the stronger bill.
The new bill came out of the
Senate Committee on Health, So-
cial Services and Retirement,
headed by Senator Alvin DeGrow
(R-Pigeon). It was proposed by
Sen. Arthur Cartwright (D-De-
troit), after a closed meeting be-
tween committee members and
representatives of Michigan indus-
According to Rep. Raymond
Smit (R-Ann Arbor), the sponsor
of the House plan, Cartwright's

Splan concerns fees levied on in-i
dustry to pay for surveillance and
monitoring of emissions. Even this
inclusion "may cause mechanical
problems" in collection of fees, be-
cause of the vague language of the
bill, Smit maintains.
A vote on the new bill is ex-
pected this Friday.
Commenting on the possibility
of passage, Watts said that ELS
would "rather have no environ-
mental protection bil passed, and
start from scratch in the next ses-
sion of the legislature, than see
this bill passed."

for tomorrow by the National Stu-

The Literary College Executive
Committee held an open forum
with LSA and Residential College
(CRC) members yesterday to dis-
cuss the recently released report

month study by a student-faculty
committee, recommends continu-

criticizes the lack of RC-LS&A
communication. It also calls for a

lag, the report suggests represen-

joint board to serve as a liaison
between the two units, to decide
policy questions and to approve
It also recommends that 25-35
per cent of the faculty should
teach exclusively in the college in
order to give it greater stability.
Participants agreed yesterday
that greater communication be-
tween RC and LS&A is necessary
in order to increase the transfer-
ability of innovations pioneered
by the experimental college and to
better review its development.
They warned, however, against
the unwieldy bureaucracy a joint
board could create. RC Dean
