A"ll Legislator rapped for nuclear waste distortion RHINELANDER (AP) Rep. Lloyd Kincaid's demand for more public information about nuclear, waste storage drew a rebuke Wednesday from a Republican legislator. Rep. Patricia A. Goodrich of Berlin insisted Kincaid is generating a misconception that the public has been denied an opportunity to comment on government thoughts about building a Wisconsin dump for radioactive material. "If you continue to perpetuate this false impression, I intend to follow you on your public speaking rounds to contradict the erroneous impression you are leaving," she said. Goodrich confronted Kincaid at a legislative hearing which he requested. Two representatives of the U.S. Department of Energy were grilled by a' Rhinelander man about the government's assurances of safety in oper-' ating a dump and shipping radioactive matter to the site. ' Kincaid, D-Crandon, accused the department of "not leveling with us." He accused Republican Gov. Lee S. Dreyfus of being too accommodating toward the department's dump plans. Rather than accept ( the department's assurances of safety from radiation, Kincaid said, the Legislature should order an investigation of its own into the question of whether Wisconsin bedrock is suitable for the tunnels in which nuclear matter would be stored. Rep. Mary Lou Munts, D-Madison, chairwoman of the Assembly's Environmental Resources 'Committee, called the hearing the first attempt to provide the public with an official forum for expressing sentiments. Goodrich said she conducted meetings in June for her constituents. Dreyfus has said that, other than expressing their opinions, states may have little voice in where the government decides to dig tunnels. The thought of a radioactive dump has stirred environmental and health protests. Dreyfus argues that if Wis consin citizens expect to benefit from electricity generated by nuclear energy, they must expect to share in the responsibility of disposing of spent fuel. Munts said citizens "need to be reminded of the strong doctrine of federal preemption" over which a state has no veto power. She expressed hope that hearings can outline what a state could do in response to the government's authority. Membership in legislative group rapped MADISON (AP) An Assembly Republican Wednesday criticized Wisconsin's membership in a national legislative organization that will cost the state $44,830 in dues this year. Assembly Minority Leader John Shabaz, R-New Berlin, criticized the state's membership in the National Conference of State Legislatures, calling it "an unjustifiable frill." He said failing to pay the dues would help the Legislature reduce its expenditures by the 4.4 requested by the Dreyfus administration. Administration Secretary Kenneth Lindner has said state spending must be trimmed by 4.4 to offset a projected budget deficit. "Especially during a period of economic recession, such an expenditure is exorbitant in the eyes of the average taxpayer," Shabaz said. Shabaz' remarks came in letters to Assemby Speaker Edward Jack-amonis, D-Waukesha, and Majority Leader Rep. Gary Johnson, D-Beloit. .Johnson is chairman of the 18-mem-ber Wisconsin Commission on Interstate Cooperation, the members of which vote on sending the dues to the national organization. In a mail ballot, Shabaz voted against spending the money and urged Johnson to call a special meeting of the organization to discuss the issue. The National Conference of State Legislatures is a nationwide organization promoting information-sharing between states. It conducts research on special topics and holds meetings and conferences for members, and keeps state legislatures informed on the status of bills and resolutions in other states. Lucey to seek open convention MADISON (AP) Patrick J. Lucey, a deputy national director of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's presidential campaign, says he will begin lobbying Sunday at the National Governors Association conference in support of an open Democratic Na-' tional Convention. The former Wisconsin governor said he plans to "circulate and talk to old friends" during the conference in Denver. Democrats who question whether President Carter can be re-elected in November are suggesting that the convention be thrown open, freeing Carter's delegates from their commitment to renominate him. Lucey said there is a risk that Kennedy as well as Carter could suffer a loss of. delegate strength were the commitment rule set aside. MOVING New Glass Studios NEW LOCATION as of August 1 1 1 6 E. Wisconsin Ave. Appleton (across from Cinema I) Cloted July 30 I 31 for moving. Butch Verich of Laona, who seeks the Repubican nomination for the Assembly seat held by Kincaid, said all factors should be reviewed before a decision is made whether to build a Wisconsin depository. Robert Wunderlich, an Ohio repre-sentative of the Department of Energy's technical division, and department engineer Leslie Casey said the agency is not yet ready to identify site preferences. , . The bedrock areas under study, they said, include northeastern Wisconsin and Minnesota. Wunderlich said a "site won't be needed until 1985." Munts said the department had b'een invited to explain the status of its explorations of the Lake Superior region. Wunderlich and Mrs. Casey were questioned by Jay Luchsinger of Rhinelander about the Department of Energy's promises of safety at dump sites and along the routes which would carry radioactive material to the dumps. He cited last weekend's train derailment near Muldraugh, Ky., Involving tank cars of toxic chemicals and the evacuation of about 7,500 persons. "Nobody is going to believe verbal assurances when they see the train wrecks like the tine in Kentucky," Luchsinger said. He asked about the danger "to inhabitants of the area" of a dump. "Under all possible scenarios we have examined, even the most imaginable, the risk would be very low," Wunderlich said. Casey said nuclear matter would be stored in casks during shipment, and Luchsinger demanded: "How can you guarantee safety?" "Casks containing nuclear wastes are especially designed to handle the situation," she replied. i . In Washington, the Senate approved a policy of having the government store spent fuel from power plants while waiting for permanent dumps to be dug. i Senators rejected 51-44 a committee's proposal for requiring utilities to store their snent fuel rods them- the committee recommendation selves while waiting for the per- Wisconsin's only stQrage facilities manent dumps. currently for spent fuel rods are Wisconsin Democrats Gaylord Nel- those maintained by public utilities son and William Proxmire voted for at three nuclear fuel power plants.
