Pagt Six WEILSVILLE DAILY REPORTER, NY Legislature to Open Busy 1970 Session Wed. Mondoy, January 3, fly HOWARD CLARK Associated Press Writer ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Legislature will open a new session Wednesday, but the faces and topics will be familiar. The lawmakers face strong, perennial challenges to provide more money for education and welfare, to reform the abortion law and to establish a universal health insurance program. Gov. Rockefeller is expected to outline these and other proposals Wednesday in the annual "Stale of the State" message— his 12th since taking office. •••> Rockefeller already has corn- mil ted himself to a $300 million increase in aid for education during the next school year and lo raising payments to welfare recipients by $136 million. The stale can make the aid increases, he has said, without raising taxes. He said the state could rely on normal growth in the yield from the state's present tax slructure. Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled legislature have adopted the program after stating repeatedly that no tax boosts will be made—despite pressures from New York City and other communities for additional aid in great amounts. Rockefeller's next budget, which he must submit by Jan. >20, is expected to reach or slightly exceed $7 billion.. The stale now is working on a budget of about $6.4 billion a year. Rockefeller and the lawmakers are jointly concerned about the possibility of antagonizing the taxpayers in this election year. The governor is seeking a fourth-four-year term and the members of the legislature are up for re-election for two-year terms in November. The strategy has been distilled to an effort of providing more money where they can* and.concentrating the remaining activity on programs that require little or no added state spending. . Working within this theme, Rockefeller renewed his appeal for liberalization of the state's 87-year-old abortion law, which now permits abortions only ~> -when necessary to save the •mother's life.:, : ><ii The. governor has advocated legislation that would expand the law to permit abortions on grounds such as hazards to the mother's physical or mental health and prospective deformity of unborn children. A similar measure was defeated last year in the Assembly and sponsors are girding for a new drive Final Arguments In Hot TV Case Scheduled Today in the 1970 session. Another bill before the Assembly would repeal the present law altogether. In other health measures, Rockefeller called again for a compulsory health insurance program. The program, which had been turned down in the legislature for several years, would require employers to provide basic coverage for workers, who would share the cost. Industry and labor have opposed the program— industry on claims about its expense and labor on contentions that the coverage is inadequate. The governor also said he would ask the legislature for a law requiring children to be immunized against German measles before attending schools. The disease, normally mild, can be dangerous to unborn children if contracted by the mother in early stages of pregnancy. Rockefeller said a vaccine has proved to be highly effective. He proposed that the State Health Department provide financial aid to communities to help pay for innoculations. The agency already helps to pay for vaccinations against smallpox, polio and domestic m easier. Exceptions are made only when parents can show, that inoculations conflict with religious beliefs. ' The proposals will be made in the "State of the State" message. The governor's office is disclosing portions of the message in advance. Rockefeller revealed over the weekend that he will ask lawmakers to raise the minimum wage in New York State from $1.60 to $1.85 an hour, beginning July 1. The cost of living, he said, has climbed since the minimum was set in February 1968. The increase would benefit about 714,000 workers in the state who now earn less than $1.85. The governor also is expected to recommend a coordinated attack on environmental problems, coordinating efforts to combat air and water pollution and preserve natural resources. In other areas, he will request . some additional funds to expand opportunitiesin higher education and to step up efforts to stem drug addiction. Republican leaders in the legislature intend to establish a record in the 1970 session that will enhance GOP prospects of retaining majority control in the November elections. The GOP now holds a comfortable 33-24 majority in the Senate, but its 79-71 edge in the Assembly is considered risky. The decision to provide more money for public schools and welfare reverses an economy drive started in 1969. It is viewed as an attempt to soothe" BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Defense lawyers for three men accused of plotting to ship stolen television sets across state lines begin their final arguments today in U.S. District Court. The defendants are Russell Bufalino, 64, a reputed Cosa Nostra chieftain from Kingston, Pa.; Salvatore Todaro, 56, of Buffalo; and John C. Sacco Jr., 41, a Buffalo man now serving a term in Attica Prison. The government says the defendants and Paul H., Parness, a police informer formerly of suburban Hamburg, planned to move about 60 stolen color television sets from Buffalo to Pitts- Ion, Pa. The government has based much of its case on Parness's testimony. Parness said during the trial that he helped Sacco and Todaro move the sets to a home on Buffalo's west side. He said he was with the two when they telephoned Bufalino after the sets were seized by slate police. The last defense lawyer rested his case last Wednesday with Todaro testifying in his own behalf. "I never saw him in my life," Todaro said of Parness. Todaro said he knew Bufalino only as a business associate. Both men own dress - making firms. The government has introduced telephone company records showing calls from an unlisted number owned by Bufalino to Todaro's home. Todaro said he and olher dress-makers used the phone from time to lime, and thai many people had acess to it. Todaro denied any part in a conspiracy to move the sets. "Did you ever engage with anyone in a conspiracy to transport stolen television sets to Pennsylvania?" Todaro's lawyer asked him during the trial. "No, sir," Todaro replied. 33 Dead As Dam Bursts In Andes By LOUIS UCHITELLE Associated Press Writer BUENOS AIRES (AP) - A flood control dam gave way in the foothills of the Andes Sunday, sending a six-foot wall of mud and water raging through the city of Mendoza and killing at least 33 persons. Radio reports to Buenos Aires, 750 miles east of the disaster area, indicated that the death toll could reach 70. A torrential all-day rain had swollen the Mendoza River to overflowing, causing flooding in many areas outside the city of 700,000. Suddenly the dam burst at Godoy Cruz, a small village just outside the city. The flood of mud and water drowned motorists in their cars as it swept the autos along the streets. It uprooted trees, smashed houses, swept pedestrians off their feel and raged through streelside outdoor cafes. At least 500 people were left homeless or injured as the water and mud ripped into flimsy shacks on the edge of the city, police reported. Government officials estimated that wind and rain in Neu- quen and Rio Negro provinces, south of Mendoza, have destroyed al least half of this year's apple and pear crops, which were to have been har- vesled this month. Telephone and cable communications with the city were cut off and electrical power was disrupted. Gov. Eugenio Blanco reported that police, firemen, civil defense workers and soldiers had been organized into rescue teams. Their efforts were hindered by continuing heavy rain through the night. elements of the electorate who objected vocally to the cutbacks. Rockefeller and Republican leaders, Senate Majority Leader Earl W. Brydges and .Assembly Speaker Perry B. Duryea agreed to the effort. For their part, the Democratic minority leaders hope to obtain favorable voter reaction . through demands for more state aid. Sen. Joseph Zaretzki and Assemblyman Stanley Steingut claim that the state could find more money by reforming its tax structure, primarily by clos- irig loopholes that enable wealthy taxpayers to minimize or escape their taxes. 'Most lawmakers are aiming for a short session to permit them to launch re-election campaigns. Some face primary challenges in June. Recently, legislative sessions have extended well into the spring and even into early summer, in contrast with the previous pattern of January through March meetings.
