N-pknt initiative costly SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - When Cjlifornians vote ia their presidential primary on Tuesday they will also cast ballots oo a proposition that could ban Luclear power plants and may determine the future of nuclear power In the United States. The proposition has fostered what may be the most expensive campaign in the state's history. According to the California Fair Political Practices Commission, some $4 millioo has already been spent for and against California's nuclear power initiative, with the measure's foes outspending proponents 3 to 1. John Keplinger, an FPPC spokesman, says that by election day, the campaigns could "very likely" be the most expensive in C a l i f o r n i a history. The record is almost $5 million, spent on an oil and gas c o n - servation initiative in 1956. The money is being spent on a measure that would ban future nuclear plant construction in California and phase out existing plants unless the legislature decided by two- thirds vote that it was safe and that radioactive waste could be safely disposed of. It also would cut back operation of current nuclear plants unless federal liability limits were removed or waived. The Field California Poll reported last week that the initiative appear to be trailing by a margin of about 2 to 1. The basic antagonists are environmental groups on one side, utilties and labor on the other. Both have said California's vote could i n f l u e n c e t h e development of nuclear power in other states.
