Pigeon
River
agreement
willnot
end fight
LANSING (UPI}-A landmark
agreement between environmentalists
and the petroleum industry allowing oil
wells in the Pigeon River Country State
Forest will not end the fight over
drilling in Michigan, lawmakers said
yesterday.
Longtime foes Ken Sikkema of the
West Michigan Environmental Action
Council and oil industry attorney Webb
Smith sat side-by-side at the news con-
ference marking the end of a 12-year-
old dispute over oil and gas drilling in
the 96,000 acre northern Michian forest.
They said the compromise will end
years of lawsuits over drilling in the
southern third of the forest.
THE AGREEMENT faces review by
the state Natural Resources Com-
mission, must be made into law by the
legislature, and be finalized incourt by
the two sides.
Drilling could begin in January, said
Smith, who represents Shell Oil Co.,
Standard Oil Co., and Northern
Michigan Exploration Co.
But lawmakers said the Pigeon River
agreement will not end haggling over
oil and gas development on other state
lands. New conflicts over petroleum
exploration have developed and cannot
be resolved without major legislation,
they said.
COMPREHENSIVE oil and gas
drilling guidelines likely will be offered
soon, said Sen. Gilbert DiNello (D-East
Detroit) who earlier this year in-
troduced similar legislation.
That bill, opposed by environmen-
talists and Gov. William Milliken as
undermining state environmental laws,
passed the Senate in a form addressing
only the Pigeon River problem.
The legislation makes law a 1976 NRC
Pigeon River drilling, agreement. It is
under consideration by a House com-
mittee and will be altered to reflect the
compromises reached between the en-
vironmentalists and the oil industry.

AS A RESULT OF the recent agreement between environmentalists and the
petroleum industry, movable derricks like this one in Falmouth, could be
used in the Pigeon River County State Forest as early as January.
Senate votes against

gov, t forced
WASHINGTON (AP) - Led by con- desp
servative Republicans, the Senate Benj
voted yesterday to prohibit the Justice mea
Department from using busing in se effe
hool desegregation cases, a move the offi
administration says would cripple ef- dese
fonts to halt discrimination in public
schools..
On a vote of 42-38, the anti-busing
amendment, sponsored by Sen. Jesse
Helms (R-N.C.), was added to a $9.J7
billion appropriation for the Justice
Department and other federal agen-
cies.
A final vote on the bill and the amen-
dAnent was delayed until Monday.
THE AMENDMENT is similar to a
rider attached to legislation already
passed by the House. If it receives final
Senate approval, it would be sent to a
House-Senate conference to work out
differences, but both versions of the an-
ti-busing amendment already are in
essential agreement.
Both versions would bar the Justice
Department from spending money to
require sending healthy children to any
school but the one nearest their home.
Approval of the amendment came

busing
pite a plea from Attorney General
jamin Civiletti, who argued that the
sure is unconstitutional and would
ctively tie the hands of government
cials working on school
gregation cases.
