Clean Air Act
violated by 39

counties
WASHINGTON (UPI) - More than
600 counties across the nation - in-
cluding 39 in Michigan - have been or
are in danger of being, penalized for
failing to comply with provisions of the
federal Clean Air Act, the U.S. Cham-
ber of Commerce said yesterday.
A report, derived from information
provided by the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency, showed that "billions of
dollars of construction projects," in
areas that do not meet air quality stan-
dards are in danger of being canceled.
North Dakota is the only state not cited.
Michigan Counties include, Allegan;
Barry; Bay; Berrien; Branch;
Calhoun; Cass; Clinton; Eaton; Gen-
nesee; Gratiot; Hillsdale; Huron;
Ingham; Ionia; Jackson; Kalamazoo;
Kednt; Lapeer; Lenawee; Livingston;
Macomb; Marquette; Midland; Mon-
roe; Montcalm; Muskegon; Oakland;
Ottawa; Saginaw; St. Clair; St.
Joseph; Sanilac; Shiawassee; Tuscola;
Van Buren; Washtenaw, and Wayne.
SANCTIONS THAT may be imposed
on non-complying counties include
prohibition of construction projects that
.might contribute to air quality
problems - including construction of
facilities that are intended to clean up
the air - and the withholding of highway
funds by the Department of Transpor-
tation.
EPA also has the option of

in state
withholding funds for construction of
sewage treatment facilities.
"Obviously, the Clean Air Act needs
to changed," said Dr. Harvey Alter,
head of the chamber's Resources and
Environmental Quality Department.
"The construction ban has no place in
this country. It is a inherently unfair
punishment of communities and does
not clean the air," he said.
OF THE 608 counties involved, 35
counties in 20 states with a combined
population of 48 million people are subject
to sanctions because the states in which
they are situated have failed to
adequately inform EPA how they intend
to conform to federal clean air standar-
ds.
The remaining 473 counties - 43 states,
106 million people - are not in complian-
ce with one or more provisions fo the
Clean Air Act. These counties have un-
til Jan. 1, 1983, to conform or they, too,
will be subject to federal sanctions.
Also, 31 states have been given until
1987 to implement motor vehicle in-
spection programs to that they will con-
form to federal standards for carbon
monoxide and ozone pollution.
"Many nonattainment areas will
likely not meet the deadline but will do
so soon thereafter," Alter said. "Now,
states can be punished for their failure
to accurately predict what the air
quality was going to be several years
after they wrote they plans."

Royal prowler causes
scramble for headlines

LONDON (AP) - One of the best
British newspaper scoops in years - a
prowler in the queen's bedroom - has
sparked a race for catch-up headlines
and praise for Fleet Street's role in
averting a possible government cover-
up.
Many Britons were incredulous when
they learned of the Daily Express scoop
Monday morning: A young man spent
10 minutes sitting on the bed of Queen
Elizabeth II Friday before the cool-
headed monarch summoned help on the
pretext of getting him a cigarette, it
reported.
OVER THE past three days the
stories have provoked a storm of
protest in Parliament, demands for
"heads to roll" in high places and a
race for fresh details of the queen's
confrontation with an intruder who
reportedly told his family he frequen-
tly went off to see his "girlfriend,
Elizabeth Regina."

The conservative Daily Express
followed Monday's scoop with banner
headlines Tuesday saying the intruder
was clutching a broken ashtray and
blood from his gashed hand dripped on
the queen's bedding while they talked.
The tabloid Sun claimed Tuesday the
prowler had broken into Buckingham
Palance 12 times. The suspect's lawyer
has denied this.
Several papers questioned whether
the government planned a cover-up.
