GKEELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Mon., April 23,1973 State Senate opponents seek defeat of Gustafson no-fault insurance bill New MISS Denver Status O f ma j or Colorado legislation By CAUL MILLIARD Associated Press Writer 'DENVER (AP) -- The supporters of a near-defunct auto insurance bill in the Colorado Senate made a public appeal this weekend in an effort to kill a rival measure up for final approval Monday. Sen. Richard Plock, R-Denver, joined by nine other senators, called for Ihe defeat of a modified no-fault auto insurance bill sponsored by Rep. Carl Gustafson, R-Denver, which has already passed the House. The Guslafson bill, handled in its trip through (he Senate by Sen. William Garnsey, R-Greeley, was termed a "repressive measure" in a handout. Flock's name led the list of senators which included John Bermingham, R-Denver, Joseph Calebrese and Roger Cisneros, both Denver Democrats; Ralph Cole and Hugh Fowler, both 'Littleton Republicans; George Jackson, R-Colorado Springs; Don MacManus, DAdams County; Joe Schieffelin, R-Lakewood and Ted Strickland, R-Westminster. Flock's bill was defeated early last week and the Gustafson bill was given preliminary approval. It was laid over Wednesday and again Thursday in order to allow a number of amendments to be prepared for discussion on third reading Monday. The handout said (he auto insurance lobbyists "have done their work well, and unless the public protests vigorously, this repressive measure will probably pass." The Gustafson bill differs substanlilly from Flock's ap- proach because it allows lawsuits to be filed for "pain and suffering" for damages only after medical costs top the $1,500 level. Plock wants the right to sue at any level, and the first argument in the release he and his supporters issued says Ihe Gustafson bill "lakes away the legal rights of 97 per. cent of all innocent accident victims." The report claims Ihe Guslafson bill is Ihe same kind of bill which Ihe people defealed 3-1 lasl November, and is Ihe same lype of bill which, they.say,. land use measure faces rough haul in legislature BOB'S WESTVIEWTV "Service is our business, not a sideline" Phone Bob Frerichs 352-8553 Specializing In Late Model Auto Salvage · Used Engines · Rear Ends · Transmissions · Re-built Cadillac and late GM Drive Shafts · Batteries AUTOENGINESand TRANSMISSIONS INSTALLED Andersen's Sales Salvage IMileE.on 8th St., 352-7797 APPLY NOW We Train Men to Work As L I V E S T O C K B U Y E R S If you have some livestock experience we will train you to buy cattle, sheep and hogs.

CATTLE BUYERS, INC. 4049 Pennsylvania Kami, City, Mo. 64111 %.,,,·,,,, ,,J .(,,,,/,,, ,,,,, By CORDON n. GAUSS Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) - Unless a checkrein is placed on powers of the fivd-member commission which would administer Colorado's proposed new land use law, Ihe measure faces tough going in Ihe legislature. Open comment among lawmakers has been slow to come since the bill still is in the hearing stage, but several of them are studying it closely. Rural legislators in particular seem apprehensive about the powers given to the commission and the apparently free hand it would have in approving or vetoing development. The bi-parlisan measure is being sponsored by Sen. Joe Schieffelin, R-Lakewood, and Rep. Richard Lamm, D-Denver. Schieffelin is Senate majority leader. Lamm is assistant minority leader in the ·House. Several objections were heard during the first hearing on the bill by the Senate Local Government Committee last week. Another hearing is scheduled Wednesday afternoon and Schieffelin says he hopes for an all-day hearing later before committee action is attempted. Particularly upsetting lawmakers from outside Ihe Denver area is authority.given the commission over noi only hazardous areas of the state but of areas which are suspected of being 'hazardous. This ''could amount, they say, lo almost complete control over any place, especially when Ihe hazard areas are defined to include spots where avalanches could occur, flood plains, high wind zones and locations where land masses are unstable. One.lawmaker said privately he questions whether a Denver bank could have made its recent move to .a new building across the street without com- mission approval if the proposed law had been in effect. Gov. John A. Love says he is supporting Ihe measure in concept but hasn'l given approval lo it "sentence by sentence." One of his aides, John R. "Ty" Patterson, worked with Ihe bill's drafters. Lt. Gov. John D. Vanderhoof said in a recent speech to real estate men at Pueblo: "In Ihe area of land use management, we need to turn again to local government, clearly separating the state from local concern and increasing the ability of local government to deal with land use problems." "doubled the gross profit" of insurance companies in Massachusetts. The group criticized provisions in the Guslafson bill which allow a wage earner $125 per week compensation for wages lost no matter how much more income he might lose as an innocent accident victim. And they criticize anolher sec- lion which Ihey say gives housewives, studenls or non- wage earner only medical expenses -·- no mailer how painful or lemporarily disabling Iheir injuries might be. They say Ihe Guslafson bill isn't really compulsory, and "is the most drastic no-fault bill proposed in anyof the 50 states." The same arguments were made in committee hearings on the bill in both the Senate and House and were unsuccessful.- Now Plock and the olhers are going to the people wilh an appeal to "tell their senators that Ihey object to Ihe passage" of the measure. Their handout said HB 1027, the Guslafson measure, is alive and the Plock bill is near death "because of the power of the insurance lobby and Ihe tremendous profil polential they see." . The Gustafson.proposal was drafled to avoid ' Ihe overpayment of "frivolous" lawsuits for pain and suffering. wants to convey Christian beliefs DENVER IAP) I The new Miss Denver says she hopes her (We will help id spread her Christian beliefs. "This is an opportunity for me to share my belief that Christ is Ihe answer lo what people are searching for, not sex or drugs or astrology," said Gayle Holden, 20, who was selected Miss Denver Saturday. She has worked wilh Campus Crusade for Chrisl. Speaking of Ihe women's liberation movemenl, Miss Holden, of Littleton said: "The Bible has the highesl viewpoint of women. It was Chrisl who really liberated women -- Ihey were like slaves before He came." "I guess I understand Ihe women's lib position that women have been exploited, but (he nationl Miss America Pageant has (he biggest scholarship program going. I can't feel that winning a scholarship is being exploited." DENVER (AP) - Here is Ihe stalus of major legislalion inlroduced (his session in Ihe Colorado General Assembly: Repeal ^Sunshine Acl, Sen.
