PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) .. r m ,t., ;». v. i» Brown frees $8 million for homemaker services SACRAMENTO (UPD- Gov. Brown ordered the i m m e d i a t e release Wednesday of $8.4 million to continue operation of threatened h o m e m a k e r services for the blind, aged and disabled. · Without the "emergency" allotment, B r o w n said, some counties would run out of money for the services within weeks. A b o u t 66,000 C a l i f o r - nians receive help under the program in cooking meals and houseclcaning. The governor explained at a Capitol news conference that the money already had been appropri- a t e d and - was ' S i t t i n g "dormant" i n ' t h e treas- u r y . "We're preventing the federal government from taking it," he said. Brown did not commit himself to future support of the program. The J8.4 million is only part of a forecast $17-million deficit facing homemaker s e r v ices t h i s f i s c a l y e a r , which ends June 30. He said a systematic review of homemaker services would be undertaken and suggested an "innovative approach" might allow for continued services without extra money. Assemblyman B a r r y Keene, D-Eureka, who attended the n e w s confer- ence, said he would push his bill to make up for the full $17 million deficit, but would keep in touch with the governor. Keene said the services were "fiscally sound" be- 'cause t h e y allowed disabled and elderly persons to stay at home and not have to be cared for full- time at an institution. Also at the news confer- e n c e was Sen. George Moscone, D - S a n Francisco, who suggested the $8.4 million would suffice to keep the program alive right now and matching federal dollars might be sought to ease the state burden in the future. Housing bill action vowed in 90 days S A C R A M E N T O ( U P I ) - Assembly Spea.ker Leo T. M c C a r t h y said Wednesday a major housing bill to create jobs a n d homes in California should be on Gov. Brown's desk in 90 days. "Housing is one area that will have the greatest i m p a c t on unemployment in California," McCarthy said. Two bills calling for $300 million in revenue bonds for low- ' a n d m o d e r a t e ? i n c o m e housing have been approved by the Senate Local G o v e r n m e n t Committee.

Brown's t h r e e appointees to the Air Resources B o a r d met formally for the first time Wednesday and b e g a n talking tough about smog. Chairman Tom Quinn, a close associate of the governor, set the tone with the declaration that Brown "would like to look back four years from now and see that something was accomplished in this field." Quinn also announced the board would "examine the possibility" of tightening up California's a u t o m o b i l e - e m i s s i o n standards for 1977 vehicles. "We have a governor who for the first time is putting air pollution as a top priority," said Quinn, who served as campaign m a n a g e r a n d d e p u t y secretary of state for Brown. The two other members of the board, whose app o i n t m e n t s were announced a day earlier, are Robert F. Sawyer, engineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley, and Mary D. N i c h o l s , Los A n g e l e s attorney. Two seats on the part- time board are yet to be filled. The preceding board, under former Gov. Ronald Reagan, twice extended the current 1975 emission standards, first to cover 1976 cars to give manufacturers a period of stabilization and then again to 1977 c a r s because of added costs t h a t would come f r o m stricter requirements. "Our intention is to review the previous board action," Quinn said. "What we do here with regard to 1977 standards may set a precedent for the rest of the nation."

Ex-employe of state held in welfare fraud SACRAMENTO (AP) County officials say a former state bookkeeper has been arrested on charges of collecting more than $2,000 a month in welfare through a series of fake names and disguises. Geraldine Chapman of Sacramento faces a hearing next week on a total of 33 charges including forgery, credit card fraud, perjury to obtain a false driver's l i c e n s e and receiving stolen property.
