Dole Finally Fires Shots at C-of-E Proposals By ANN COOPER Telegram's Washington - Bureau WASHINGTON — A year after he introduced legislation on the subject, Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan., finally got to tell the Senate Public Works Committee what he thinks of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposals that could require federal permits for such routine farming operations as digging irrigation ditches or plowing. Not much — that's what Dole thinks of the proposals, although he phrased his feelings in. more eloquent terms in a statement prepared for the committee. Four years ago, Congress gave the Corps authority to require permits for dredging and filling activities on the nation's waterways and wetlands. The Corps originally only required permits for activity on water traditionally considered "navigable" and any water adjacent to it.

(AP) — The chairman of the Kansas Corporation Commission said Friday that agency is feeling its way in drawing guidelines for implementing a 1976 law for assignment of exclusive electric service territories. "We've never undertaken a project quite like this, said G. T. Van Bebber. The new law is designed to end overlapping electric service territories of the three kinds of' utilities providing electric service in this state: investor-owned utilities; municipal utilities, and rural electric cooperatives. Justice Plans to Return to Bench WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Thurgood Marshall plans to return to his office next month and be back on the bench when the U.S. Supreme Court reconvenes Oct. 4. Marshall, who is at home recovering from a heart attack, hopes to return to work in his chambers part time in the middle of August and full time in mid-September, a court spokesman said. Marshall, 68, was hospitalized July 4 after what was described as a mild heart attack. He returned home Saturday. farming operations, and a description that many congressmen are now sure they never intended to write into law. In response to the decision, the Corps came up with some new regulatory proposals to cover more waterways. "Following the court decision, opposition to the permit program arose from agricultural and forestry interests who feared an expanded program would interfere with normal daily activites near inland waters and on wetland areas, such as plowing, digging irrigation ditches, etc.," Dole said in his statement to the committee. Though the language in the law doesn't specifically cover those activities, its vagueness and the court decision make regulation of normal farming acts "a very real possibility," Dole said. Such regulation could create unnecessary delay and expense for routine farm operations, he added, since the Corps doesn't have the manpower or money to perform it. Dole, one of several congressional critics of the permit issue, introduced a bill about a year ago td severely restrict Corps permit jurisdiction to ' navigable waters currently used or subject to use for commerce, and he helped delay any new Corps regulations until Sept. 1. But while his proposal languished in committee, the House passed an amendment to reduce Corps jurisdiction to commercially navigable waters, their adjacent wetlands and coastal wetlands, leaving alone small farm and forestry operations. The Senate Public Works Committee hearings this week are the first action on the issue in that body. The committee could come up with a bill of its own, or consider the Dole measure or other proposals before it. It could also simply decide to accept the House amend- Page2 Garden City Telegram Saturday, July 31,1976 / . ment, added to a clean water bill, when House and Senate conferees meet to iron out differences in their versions of clean water legislation. The Senate has already passed its bill without any mention of the dredge and fill permit issue. Dole said he would be willing to accept the House- passed amendment, which would also allow state and local authorities to regulate dredge and fill activities on their navigable waters and adjacent wetlands.
