Colorado Senate Approves Women's Rights Amendment By GORDON G. GAUSS A«$oc!ated Presi Writer DENVER (AP) - An amendment to Colorado's constitution extending full equality to women in all governmental sectors within the slafe was approved Monday by t h e state's Senate but it rejected an effort to require private sectors to meet the same requirement. The Senate action finally came on a 31-0 vote. .The Senate action sent the measure back to the House of Representatives where final approval by a two thirds majority would place it on the ballot for a vote of the people at the November election. Technically, the Senate accepted a conference committee report which deleted from the amendment a now-meaningless proposal to ratify the equal rights amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The provision' became meaningless when the legislature passed a separate resolution last week ratifying the federal amendment. T h e compromise s t a t e amendment approved by the Senate forbids discrimination on account of sex "by" the state of Colorado a n d all its subdivisions instead of forbidding ' discrimination againsl women "in" the state of Colara do and its, subdivisions. Originally, the House passec the amendment including tlie word "in". The Senate changed it to "by". The only woman senator, Republican Ruth Stockton, R-Lakewood, recommended acceptance of the compromise including the word "by." Supporting her was Sen. John Bermingham, R-Denver, who saic that no lawyers would commi themselves to' the true meaning of the amendment including the word "in." He also said that to accomplish full equality the words "under the law" woulc have to be removed from tire amendment. Challenging him was Sen George Brown, D-Denver, win was beaten down in several at tempts to restore the w o r e "in." He first asked that the con ference committee he dissolvec and a new one appointed bu Lt. Gov. John Vanderhoof, who was presiding, said only a con ference committee can dissolve itself and Brown's motion, wa out of order.- Next, Brown los by voice vote an attempt to de fer consideration 24 hours determine the parliamentarj snarl. Then, he tried to get fh Senate to reconsider its origina action and restore the won "in", thereby accepting tin House version. He was defealec 11 to 19. Finally, all the senators ac lepled the conference repor 31-0, the passed the amendmen by the same vote.

Sfockfleth Hardware Hillside Center During the discussion Bermingham predicted that in- iusion of the word "in" would ncan the resolution would be illed. He said even such things is a boys camp possibly could not be established. "It would be irresponsible," iermingham said, "to adopt anguage nobody clearly understands." He declared that the slate ion pass laws governing dis- riminalion in the private sec- or. The amendment's original sponsor, Betty Ann Dittemore, l-Englewood, told reporters the revised version o[ the ainend- nent was "all right." She said hat its discrimination on account of sex is already forbidden in the private sectors by he Civil Rights Act. Brawn declared during de- late that this law is ineffective. T h e fight over the women's rights amendment climaxed a morning of wrangling by the Senate following (he weekend recess. ft got into a major scrap over another proposed conslilutional amendmenl -- one which would allow salaries of state and county officials to be increased during their terms in office. Finally a vote was defeated unti Thursday. Sen Ben Klein, D- Denver, tried to write into the measure a provision that the legislature could set qualifications for sheriffs and their deputies. He lost 12-20. A major fight erupted o v e r an amendmenl put into the measure Friday .which would have opened the way for holdover senators lo vote on pay raises which they would receive in the succeeding General Assembly. Sen. William Armstrong, H-Aurora, the majority leader, finally succeeded in striking this provision on a 1715 vote. During the debate Klein referred to Armstrong as "congressman." The reference was lo the possibility Armstrong may be' an aspirant for the newly-created fifth district con gressional seat. He has said he will announce bis decision on running after the legislature ends.
