Debate / Tax cut's effect is disputed •r FROM PAGE A1 IFlow restrictions in Grand Canyon become law [Interior secretary says protection has been given to Colorado River By The Associated Press PHOENIX — Marking a "sea change" in the way the nation's dams are operated, Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt signed new regulations Wednesday giving en- vir9nmental concerns precedence over power needs in managing the Colorado River's flow through the Grand Canyon. The landmark measure, restricting a power cooperative's ability to send wildly fluctuating amounts of water through the Glen Canyon Dam, is expected to serve as a blueprint for dam operations across the United States. "We have now provided protection to the Colorado River," Babbitt said. "This marks a sea change in the way we view the operation of large dams. We have shown they can be operated for environmental purposes as well as water capture and power generation." The order follows six years of research into the environmental changes caused by the Glen Canyon Dam since it began operating in 1963, turning what was once a red, muddy river into a clear, green waterway. The studies, including a manmade flood last March, concluded that the canyon's ecosystem had been choked by three decades of extreme daily fluctuations in water releases from the dam, along with the absence of natural seasonal flooding. The artificial flood returned nutrient-rich sediment to the river, reviving old beaches and creating several new ones. It also revived habitats for endangered fish to breed in some of the backwaters. Because the flood was so successful in reviving the canyon's ecosystem, a major deluge will probably be released every 7 to 10 years to mimic the floods once caused by melting snow in Colorado's mountains. "This hereby mandates that we will flood this river in perpetuity for the benefit of all parties," Babbitt said. Under the new regulations, dam operators cannot increase the hourly flow by more than 4,000 cubic feet per second, or decrease it by more than 1,500. The biggest impact is expected to be felt late at night, when power consumption is at its lowest, and at peak usage in midafternoon. "This economy is overtaxed, over-regulated," Kemp said in making the case for Dole's plan to cut taxes 15 percent across the board. Kemp said the economy was growing a feeble 2.5 percent a year under Clinton. "Bob Dole and I believe we can do a lot better." Gore, in turn, said repeatedly that Dole and Kemp were offering a "risky $550 billion tax scheme" that would "blow a hole in the deficit and cause much deeper cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, education and the environment." Gore promoted Clinton's plan for targeted tax cuts to help low- and middle-class families pay for college. Kemp countered that government should not engage in "social engineering" by picking winners and losers through its tax policy. In any event, Kemp said it was "four years too late," for Clinton Jo be promising middle-class tax cuts. Kemp fudged when asked if he agreed with Dole's call for a repeal of the family leave law. "I wouldn't have voted for it; it is in place," Kemp said. The law is popular with working women, a critical constituency, and Gore sensed an opening. "It shouldn't be repealed — it ought to be extended," the vice president said. Much of the debate was spent on nitty-gritty policy differences, but Kemp and Gore also took time to offer their views on race relations — and what each agreed was a worrisome decline in civility throughout society. For the most part, the policy fights tracked the positions staked out by Clinton and Dole in their first debate Sunday night. Kemp, for example, said Clinton and Gore were practicing "demagoguery" in trying to frighten older Americans by claiming that Dole's budget plan would require devastating Medicare cuts. But Gore did not budge. "The word scary has been used," he said of the Republican position. Dole was criticized by some Republicans after the first debate for not attacking Clinton on administration ethical lapses. Moderator Jim Lehrer of PBS opened the 90- minute debate by asking Kemp if he agreed with the critics. "In my opinion, it is beneath Bob Dole to go after anyone personally," Kemp said. Gore thanked Kemp for that answer, and from there the debate Quotes from viewers "Both these guys have a more sincere command of the issues and probably fewer character detriments than their respective bosses. It was a greatrun-up for2000.... It would be difficult to call a winner in this particular debate. There weren't any knockdown blows scored." Mark Wllloughby marketing director in Parker, Colo. "I thought thatAl Gore connected more with people of my generation, talking about the future and new programs and new ways to solve problems.... Kemp didn't convince me that the tax cut is going to reduce the budget deficit. And none of my Harvard professors seems to think so either — even the Republicans." Avery Gardiner economics major at Harvard University proceeded politely, at times studiously, even though the two men differed sharply over many issues. "The problem with the foreign policy of this administration is there is none," Kemp said. "We have learned over the years that weakness is provocative." Gore begged to differ, saying the administration had brought peace, however tenuous, to Bosnia and Haiti and was working to end bitter conflicts in Northern Ireland and the Mideast. "President Bill Clinton has shown tremendous courage, vision, wisdom .and leadership," Gore said. DIM THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
