PRESS-TEUOHAM (PM) \j»n tw*, CUM., *«., tTM. a. mi Mansion construction continued Brown vows $1 million SACRAMENTO (UPD Legislation to h a l t construction on the new governor's mansion was ! scrapped T u e s d a y but Gov. Brown promised tax- p a y e r s a million-dollar savings by living in his downtown apartment. Brown unveiled cost figures w h i c h showed he would save the state $1.4 million over the next four years by not living in the $1.3 million mansion in Carmichael which he has described as an unneeded "Taj Mahal." "That may not be cut, squeeze and trim," Brown said in reference to former Gov. Ronald Reagan, the chief promoter of the 1'2,000-square-foot building. "But I think it is the 'new spirit."' As the governor told newsmen of the savings, the Assembly Governmental Committee .voted to let construction on the part i a l l y finished mansion continue and put the Department of Parks and Recreation in charge of the residence. Brown's figures showed that it would cost $391,000 a year for upkeep, new furniture, a guard house, maid and cooks, and security if he were to live in the mansion-. In contrast, Brown said, it would cost $22,000 a year for him to live in his d o w n t o w n a p a r t m e n t , which he plans to move into soon. Presently he is l i v i n g in S a c r a m e n t o motels and hotels_. Brown and his assistant Paul Halvonik discounted legal arguments that the land could be reclaimed by donors if the mansion was used for anything other than a governor's residence. "There is no legal possibility that 1 can envision t h a t would allow the property to be reverted," Brown said. "The state can do with it whatever it wants." The property was donated to the state in 1969 by Citizens for a Residence for California Governors, an organization c h i e f l y composed of wealthy supporters of Reagan. Legislative attorneys have warned that the lan'd ' donors might sue if the mansion is used for a halfway house for drug addicts or a ' children's . home. A Brown spokesman said the governor will make a proposal on what to do with the mansion when all alternatives are studied. Brown also predicted the state could make a $25,000 a year profit if it . turned the mansion into a seminar conference center, which he proposed earlier as an alternative. He also suggested that lesser profits could be made if it were changed into an office, archives, or a private residence. A s s e m b l y m a n John Vasconcellos, D-San Jose, who was carrying a bill to halt construction if Brown determined it was feasible, changed direction-and used the measure to delete language in the codes which says the building must be used as a governor's residence. · " . · · · GUARANTEED FOSTER FARMS onthc telephone.

BROWN discusses construction of the new governor's mansion with newsmen Tuesday in his Capitol office. --AP Wireptolo First PUC appointee by Brown SACRAMENTO (UPD Leonard Ross, 29, winner of television's "$64,000 Challenge" when he was 11 years old, Tuesday was appointed to the Public Utilities Commission by Gov. Brown. Ross, an a t t o r n e y , economist and co-author of the top-selling book "The Best," succeeds Robert McDavid at the ?37,212-a-year post on the five-member board. Ross was the governor's first appointee to the commission w h i c h B r o w n promised during the election campaign he would make a "consumeiHirient- ed" agency sensitive to the needs of utility ratepayers.

Brown told newsmen he expected Ross to have a "dramatic and important impact on the proceedings of the commission."

The appointees are Los Angeles attorney M a r y Nichols and UC-Berkeley mechanical engineering professor Robert Sawyer.
