Flood said when the appro-
priations hill is brought up for
a vote in the House, he will
recommend acceptance of the
language adopted in 1976 and re-
jected by the Senate conferees.
ONCE THE appropriations bill
comes before the House and
Senate, each chamber will be
able to instruct its conferees on
whether to stick by the language
originally adopted or to go along
with more lenient or more re-
strictive language.
After each chamber votes, the -
conferees will meet again to try
to arrive at an approach to the
abortion question. Their decision
must be approved by the House
and Senate before the funding
bill can be sent to President
Carter.
About 300,000 abortions were
performed at federal expense
last year, most of them for poor
women who received Medicaid
services.
A SIMILAR impasse devel-
oped in 1976 when the conferees
could not agree on the abortion
question. After a prolonged dis-
pute, both houses finally voted
that federally funded abortions
could be provided only when a
woman's life was at stake.
This provision led to a lawsuit
that has not been resolved by
the Supreme Court. In a related
case, the court ruled that states,
which administer the Medicaid
program, h a v e discretionary
powers and may deny Medicaid
funding for abortions if they
choose.

fact, the storm clouds may on-
ly be gathering.
One of the long term goals
and objectives of the commis-
sion is financial independence.
Because the commission rea-
lizes the, federal government
will continue to decrease sub-
sidies to public housing pro-
grams, according to Kerr, "the
commission should develop a
workable plan by which public
housing can remain operation-
al, without federal subsidies."
HUD HAS implemented a
plan called performance fund-
ing, the idea of which, accord-
ing to Kerr is to "get HUD out
of public housing, and leave
the burden with the city."
In the ,last fiscal year the
Housing Commission received
$60,000 in operating subsidies.
"This means that in order for,
the Housing Commission to sur-
vive, we must realize 95 per
cent rental collections," said

Kerr.
THE 95 PER cent goal seeins
like an insurmountable figure,
considering the commission Cur-
rently has almost $70,000 in un-
collected rent, much of which
was held back by tenants pro-
testing the rent hike of Septem-
ber 1976.
But Kerr said he was confi
dent the goal can be reached
once public housing tenants re-
alized the commission is con-
cerned about their welfare and
living conditions.
'The commission also faces a
shortage in the supply of pub-
lic housing for Ann Arbor low
income groups. The list for peo-
ple waiting for two-bedroom
housing is currently 161 parties
long. The person at the head
of the list has been on it since
April 25, 1973. The person at
the top of the list for senior
citizen housing has been on the
list since April 23, 1973.
