House okays prison rulings
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
LANSING, Mich. - The House
yesterday voted to promote increased
public involvement in the selection of
new prison sites by breaking a
The House also approved a number of
other measures, including a major bill
increasing the bonding limite for the
Michigan State Housing Development
Authority and permitting the state to
provide financing for private
All the measures now go to the Senate
for further consideration.
The prison bill - although the subject
of heated controversy for weeks - was
approved on an 86-12 vote without
debate and sent to the Senate.
Current law requires the state Depar-
tment of Corrections to notify public of-
ficials and hold public'hearings before
recommending a specific new prison
site to the Legislature.
That process has not been implemen-
ted, however, because of the
Legislature's failure to adopt the
department's plan which calls for the
construction of eight new prisons by the
The bill passed by the House resolves
the problem by simply repealing the
requirement that the Legislature ap-
prove the construction plan.

stage" and warned that if the U.S. in-
tervened, "then our people will go to the
gulf in groups and make it insecure."

The voice vote marked the third time

Explosion injures woman
MILWAUKEE - Two homemade
bombs baited with $1 bills were found

the negotiating table, we'll meet them
halfway," President Reagan told
