issue in
doubt
DETROIT (UPI) - Months
ago, a committee composed of
business, union and civic lead-
ers was formed to encourage
support for a $1.1 billion trans-
portation bond issue.
Now, the committee leaders
admit passage of the issue on
Nov. 5 is not a sure thing -
though there is no'organized op-
position and just about every-
one supports better transporta-
tion in the state.
THE problem lies in the fact
that many Michigan voters fail
to understand what the bond is-
sue means-and leaders of the
Michigan Citizens for Better
Transportation said yesterday
they have faced financial diffi-
culties in raising money to fi-
nance an advertising campaign
on its behalf.
"I'm .terribly disappointed in
the money gathered for this ef-
fort," said United Auto Workers
President Leonard Woodcock,
who estimated the committee
would need between $70,000 and
$75,000 to finance a media cam-
paign."
The question of money surfac-
ed during the weekend when
Bill Blue, the committee direct-
or, quit the payroll and said the
organization was in deep finan-
cial trouble.
APPEARING with Woodcock
yesterday at a Detroit news
conference were University
president Robben Fleming,
president of the University of
Michigan and chairman of the
committee, and Roy Chapin,
chairman of American Motors
Corp.
Chapin said passage of the
bond issue-which would pro-
vide funds to improve various
modes of transportation through-
out the state-was by no means
certain.
"Passage of the transporta-
tion bond proposal isn't assur-
ed, particularly in a year of
rising costs and general voter
disenchantment," said Chapin.
"The facts are clear. We are at
an important milestone in the
progress of transportation in
Michigan."
Chapin said Michigan could
be in trouble "if continuing mis-
understanding, misinformation
and short-sighted decisions de-
lay our planning and more im-
portant, delay our action in
providing an adequate transpor-
tation system for out state."
The AMC chairman said he
was bothered that Michigan,
one-time leader in development
of means of transportation, "is
now a laggard."
Fleming admitted money for
committee operations had not
been up to his expectations. "I
would have hoped for more
money when the governor asked
me to chair the committee," he
j said.
