proposal upsets OCTD directors New Formula on Transit Aid Attacked Candidates File Spending Totals lei Snarlrt tTimrt R Fri., Mar. 10, 1 978-Port n 3 COURT REJECTS NORTON BID TO QUASH PERJURY CHARGES At present, the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) will pay 50 of an eligible district's operating expenses. The new bill would reduce that to one-third. In addition, the formula for allocating funds for capital projects, now based on population and population densities, would be changed to one that would use population for only 50 of the allocation. One fourth of the remainder would be distributed on the basis of fixed guideway (rail) mileages little of which is in the West and the rest would be broken down between commuter rail mileages, bus mileages and the age of the district's bus fleet However, he said, there still is a strong possibility that western transit agencies could persuade Congress to change the proposal "if we all stand together Ms. Young said the proposal basically pits the so-called "sunbelt" states against the "frostbelt" areas in the allocation of federal transit funds. The terms apply to states in the South, Southwest and West versus those in the North, Northeast and Midwest Later, OCTD's governmental affairs director. Curt Stewart, told reporters that the Carter-backed plan would have a serious effect on the amount of federal funds available to transit agencies in the western area during the panel's investigation of campaign contributions. He also is charged with soliciting false testimony from Gary Newmyer, also a former Santa Ana policeman, who worked on Norton's campaign.
