In addition to the allegations of
unfair rent fees, the suit alleges that the
YMCA treated its residents poorly and
that the rooms lacked basic amenities.
"I have found the problems which
the tenants have told us to be among
the most egregious of tenant com-
plaints," Maurer said. "Letters have
been used to put out residents with a
72 hour notice."
Maurer also contends that the

'Unfunded mandates' legislation signed
WASHINGTON - President Clinton yesterday signed into law a second
piece of legislation in the House Republicans' "Contract
with America," using the event to preach bipartisan
cooperation after weeks of political warfare with Con- h>
gress over spending and taxing priorities.
Clinton signed legislation to limit Washington's abil-
ity to pass on to the states new federal requirements
without also giving states the funds to pay for those
requirements. Clinton backed the "unfunded mandates"
legislation from the outset.
The measure is the second proposal in the GOP con-
tract to become law. Clinton has already signed a bill that Clinton
makes Congress comply with the laws it passes.
Under the mandates law, the Congressional Budget Office will be required
to estimate the cost of a regulation before passage if it is believed to be $50
million or more. A similar provision would be required for federal legislation
that would cost businesses more than $100 million, although Congress would
not be required to provide funding for the legislation.

Georgia law dodges
wait on handguns
ATLANTA - Democrat Gov.
Zell Miller signed a law yesterday
freeing Georgia from the Brady
Law's waiting period for handgun
The measure, which also wipes
out longer waiting periods imposed
in 10 Georgia cities and counties,
including Atlanta, was a major vic-
tory for the National Rifle Associa-
tion, whose lobbyists flanked Miller
during the signing.
"This piece of legislation is go-
ing to keep handguns out of the hands
of criminals while allowing law-abid-
ing citizens to purchase guns," Miller
The law is designed to take advan-
tage of a provision in the federal Brady
Law that exempts states from the
waiting period if they implement an
instant background check. Georgia is
awaiting a reply from the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on
whether the new state law meets Brady

Former postal worker
charged with 4 deaths
MONTCLAIR, N.J. - A debt-
ridden former postal worker was
charged yesterday with shooting to
death four men in a holdup at a small
neighborhood post office.
Christopher Green was arrested
shortly before noon, less than 24 hours
after the robbery. He told investiga-
tors he held up the post office "be-
cause he had a mountain of debt,"
Postal Inspector Kevin Manley said.
He used part of the stolen money
for back rent, Manley said.
Green was arrested at an apart-
ment in a high-rise in East Orange,
four miles from this New York City
suburb, where authorities found a 9
mm pistol believed to have been used
in the killings and $2,000 in cash.
