PAGE TWELVE BLYTUJUVILUS (AKK.) COUKIiJR NiiWS WEDNESDAY, MAY «. 1&58 Tidelands Bill Returns To House (Continued from Page 1) oil ore California, Texas and Louisiana. The bill would recognize state ownership of all submerged lands within historic state boundaries. Although not spelled out, this has usually been taken to mean three miles except on the gulf coasts of Texas and Florida, which claim 1014 miles. Goes To Slates Another section would give the states the right to develop oil and other natural resources In the ocean bed if the courts should dispute the right of Congress to transfer title. The federal government would have oil and other mineral rights in the continental shelf, the aren running outward from state boundaries to where the ocean floor drops off sharply. In some places this is as far out as 300 miles. The House bill provides that the secretary of the interior should administer the continental sheir; the Senate version makes no provision for its administration. The Senate plans to handle that issue in separate legislation. Rep. J. Frank Wilson (D-Tex), n backer of state ownership, said he preferred the House "package" treatment, but that after talking with Senate leaders he considers it the wiser course for the House to accept the Senate bill.
