penalize people for parking downtown,
just the constant abusers," he added.
ROBBINS NOTED that only 18 per
cent of all violations are ticketed, but
each officer averages 23 tickets per
hour, or one every 2.6 minutes. He said
this is about the maximum performan-
ce that can be expected of the police.
Meters in parking structures receive
more money than those on the street,
according to Robbins.
Traditionally, Belcher said, when the
fine isincreased, people tend to respond
by feeding the meters. He added,
"When we get all the parking struc-
tures paid for, we can take all the
parking meters down all over the city."

The mayor noted that the parking
system "is still running into a paper
deficit." He believes that deficit could
be corrected by channeling parking
ticket revenue into the parking system
instead of applying that money to the
general fund. Revenue from the meters
goes to the parking system, but fine
money does not. Belcher said if all
parking fine money went to the parking
system, that system could make
$250,000 to $700,000 a year.
Belcher said people berate the
parking system for being in the red
because they are unaware of the diver-
sion of fine and meter funds. He said
that method is used because,
"Somebody put it that way a long time

to the company's four Freedom of In-
formation Act (FOIA) requests.
THOSE FOIA requests were submit-
ted last Friday, and the company is en-
during the ten-day interim until the
requests are filled before filing an ap-
peal for reconsideration of its license
"One of the exemptions to turning
over documents that the FOIA
authorizes is national security con-
siderations," Meyer said.
Dadealus continues to train ap-
proximately . eight Chinese
technologists in the use of the equip-
ment, although its exportation was
prohibited by a joint operating commit-
tee of several- government agencies.
Meyer said the training of the
technologists is considered "tran-
sferring technical data to a foreign
nation which means exportation." If

regulations say about transferring
technical data and the requirements for
licensing," Meyer added. He would not
comment on what actions would be
taken concerning that training.
When asked why the Chinese are
being denied this type of equipment
when the Russians have had it for
years, Meyer replied, "We took into ac-
count the availability abroad of such
equipment outside the U.S. and con-
sidered it important not to let this go."
Meyer would not say how readily
available this equipment is outside this
Alan Parker, president of Daedalus,
said the Chinese are eager to buy the
equipment from the U.S. because it is
cheaper than the same devices
manufactured by European countries.
He said the training would continue un-
til the government orders it stopped.

State Senate to vote on stiff lobbying rules

The state Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee voted yesterday to submit to the full
house a bill that would tighten state
regulation of lobbyists.
The measure, approved by the com-
mittee 6-1, would force lobbyist agents
and principals to report all expen-
ditures and itemize entertainment ex-
penses over $75 in a one-month period
or $250 in a year. Gifts to legislators
over $25 would also be banned.
YESTERDAY'S decision ended

weeks of bipartisan debate and avoided
a possible resolution from the Senate
that could have taken the bill out of
ManySenate members have become
increasingly dissatisfied with the
committee's failure to submit a lobby
reform bill and threatened to call for a
floor vote in the Senate if the committee
failed to act by May.
"WE WOULD have been back to the
drawing board if we had let the bill be
discharged. We might not have been

version is not strong enough but said he
expects "severe modifications" to be
introduced in the Senate before the bill
is finally adopted.
The lone dissenting vote was cast by
committee chairman Basil Brown, (D-
Highland Park) who insists the bill is
unconstitutional because it is an in-
fringement of the right to free speech.
"The bill is illegal. It interferes with
your rights as a citizen and I believe
there was extraordinarily undue
methods of coercion by the sponsors of
the bill," Brown said.
DEREZINSKI SAID he believes the
bill would immediately benefit the
public since the exact nature of lob-
byists' expenditures will be disclosed
for the first time. He believes there will
be a "much cleaner political process"

because the public will be informed of
every transaction between business
and politicians.
Derezinski refuted the claim that the
bill would be a symbol of government
intrusion in business. He insisted the
regulation would be a legitimate one
and would- prevent further lobbyist
"The honest lobbyists won't have any
problem with this bill but the ones who
abuse their right as lobbyists will have
to conform and report their expen-
ditures or face the consequences,"
Derezinski said.
