A6 Tuesday, May 16,1995 MONEY Report suggests fann support reform By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Federal crop subsidies, acreage idling, export subsidies and import quotas should be scrapped in favor of a simple revenue safety net for farmers, a think tank with ties to moderate Democrats said Monday. In calling for an overhaul of Depression-era farm programs, the Progressive Foundation labeled current policy "anachronistic, inefficient, intrusive and unfair." The group said the programs benefit wealthy farmers, reward low productivity and hinder overseas sales. The group's 34-page booklet provides an alternative to the abolition of programs sought by some conservatives and the administration's recommendation to preserve basic farm programs and make $1.5 billion in unspecified cuts over five years. Congress is deliberating cuts of $5 billion to $15 billion during that period. Crop subsidies should be replaced with revenue insurance, only the most environmentally sensitive land should be idled and credit rather than subsidies should be used to promote export sales, the foundation said. "Together, these reforms would reduce spending and eliminate the highly skewed distribution of farm program benefits, improve environmental and rural economic conditions, expand U.S. markets overseas, and help cut the deficit," said the group's report. Subsidies should end gradually, the report states, recommending a $5 billion spending cap in the first year — about one-half of current average spending. Farmers would instead become eligible for up to $20,000 in insurance against drastic drops in their revenue, with the opportunity to buy more coverage. That kind of safety net would protect more growers than the current programs. General Motors recalls 1995 Blazers, Jimmys By The Associated Press DETROIT — General Motors Corp. said Sunday it is voluntarily recalling 111,000 1995-model Chevrolet Blazers and GMC Jimmys to modify a fuel tank cover that leaked in one crash test. The November test by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that the tank could leak after a 35-mph crash into a barrier. That speed exceeds federal crash standards. The company said it began notifying owners of the recall on May 5. GM has been criticized for the design of fuel systems in millions of 1973-87 full-size pickups. Critics said the pickups' fuel tanks are vulnerable to rupture because they are located outside the vehicles' frame rails. GM said it is also making improvements to the sport-utility vehicles, putting redesigned rear wiper blades on 79,000 vehicles.

The insurance industry, which files for workers' compensation rate changes through the National Council on Compensation Insurance, proposed a 6.9 percent decrease in late February, which would have lowered rates $22.1 million in Kansas. The state's approximately 45,000 employers pay workers' compensation insurance premiums, and their workers are paid from a fund when they are injured on the job. Rates are based on the employers' loss records. This year's 7.5 percent reduction follows a 1.9 percent de- crease in the rates in 1994, the first year after the 1993 Legislature reformed the system. : The rates had increased by 65 percent in the four-year pe-i riod of 1989-92. There was a freeze in the rates in 1993 while the Legislature considered the ; reform legislation, but there i was a 21.7 percent increase in 1992 and a 24 percent jump in 1991. :. "I am confident that the 1995... rates will guarantee the avail-i ability of workers' compensation insurance for employers of Kansas, and that companies" that sell workers' compensation insurance will get a fair return on their product," Sebelius' said. ' She said she decided to reduce the rates more than the industry wanted to lower them after reviewing the Insurance Department's independent' study of the rates submitted by • NCCI. The national council has estimated that Kansas employers will receive a total savings of $50 million this year.
