Senate Backs Appalachian Commission The New York Times News Service WASHINGTON -The Senate, in the first legislative setback for the President's proposal to merge federal aid programs into broad revenue sharing plans with the states, voted yesterday to extend the Appalachian Regional Development Commission for another four years. Only Wednesday, in a special message to Congress, Nixon had proposed that the semi-autonomous commission be abolished and that its broad housing, highway construction, health and education programs be merged into a new revenue-sharing program for rural community development. BUT YESTERDAY the only senator to come to the defense of the President was Sen. James L. Buckley, Cons.-R., N.Y. who introduced a short statement in the Congressional Record advocating that the Appalachian Commission be phased out over the coming year. (Both ' Tennessee senators, Howard Baker and Bill Brock, voted to extend the coin-mission.) With no senator willing to openly defend the administration's position on the Senate floor, the Senate passed the legislation by a 77-to-3 vote. Buckley, William V. Roth Jr., R-Del., and Allen J. Ellender, D-La., voted in opposition. THE LEGISLATION now goes to the House, where similar opposition is expected to the abolishment of the Appalachian program. First established in 1965, the Appalachian Commission represented a new concept in regional development under which the federal government provided funds and the state an d local governments, working through a regional commission, then determined how the money would be spent. The program covers counties in 13 states, stretching from New York to Mississippi, including Tennessee. Over the last five years, Congress has appropriated $1.3 billion to the 14-member, federal-state Appalachian Commission. In addition to extending the . commission's life for four years, the new legislation would authorize $925 million for highway construction, and $571 million for health, housing, education, and environmental programs. OVER THE years the Appalachian program has developed a powerful congressional constituency of defenders from the 13 states. The success of the program also has generated considerable congressional pressure to form similar commissions for other regions of the country. Illustrative of the regional defense of the Appalachian program was the position of Ren. Baker who last month introduced the President's general revenue-sharing legislation but who yesterday was a leader in the move to extend the life of the Appalachian Commission. Baker insisted that extension of the Appalachian Commission was "not any rejection or setback" to the President's revenue-sharing proposals since the program was "really a form of revenue-sharing." To which one Democrat in the Senate cloak room said to a colleague: "It's not a setback, it's the death knoll." The vote was regarded in Senate circles as a demonstration of the congressional reluctance to abolish existing federal aid programs in favor of consolidating them in SEE 195 -40 Sections Open Monday (Continued from Page One) Louisville, Chattanooga and Birmingham. Motorists may utilize the new artery as a shortcut and also may hope to find old highway routes and city streets less congested because of the diversion of "through" traffic. THE NEW stretch of throughway has a full "diamond" interchange at 46th Avenue, North, near Richland Park, partial interchanges at Jefferson Street and at 28th Avenue North, and another complete interchange a t Eighth Avenue North near Clay Street. The section connects with 1-65 and 1-24 just east of the river, near the intersection of Whites Creek Pike and Dickerson Road. Highway department, officials said they expect the 1-40 "inner loop" to be completed by the end of the year, connecting the section to be opened Monday with the east end of 1-40 and also with the south end of 1-65 in South Nashville. - 2381 PAY I Strike i f f !P 4t it - -r WASHINGTON (UPI) A rail union yesterday canceled plans for a strike pending a federal appeals court ruling on its petition to set aside a lower court injunction barring the union from a selective strike against two major railroads.
