2B-June 27. 1976 Sunday Gazette-Mail -Charl«/on, w«l Virginia Senate Approves $53 Billion In Spending Measures By Tom Raum WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate on Saturday approved $53 billion in spending measures, including one that prevents some top officials from using government limousines to get to and from work. The main target of that provision appeared to be Russell Train, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. It was contained in a $43.3 billion funding bill for the EPA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development and other related agencies. The Senate Appropriations Committee, in a report accompanying the bill, said it is "particularly alarmed at the EPA's administrator's refusal to relinquish his vehicle and driver in view of his recent public, suggestions that government workers should join carpools, take public transportation or walk to work during the congested Bicentennial season." Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., the author of the provision who has a reputation for jogging to his office each day from his Washington home, said there is no excuse Dominic Gaziano,M.D. · " onnounces the removal '-.' of his office to J3100MacCorkleAve,S.E. ' Suite 402 -Phone: 346-1811 for government officials to ride to and from work at taxpayers' expense. * * * THE MEASURE would apply to all officials of agencies under the EPA-HUD appropriation bill, except HUD Secretary Carla Hills, who ranks a limousine because of her Cabinet status. Proxmire said the legislation would apply to the EPA administrator and three others who still use government limousines for such purposes. He listed them as the administrator and deputy administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the administrator of the Veterans Administration. The committee report, however, went on to note "with pleasure the decision of the head of the Council on Environmental Quality (Russell W. Peterson) to give up his government vehicle and driver and join a car pool." The over-all measure was approved 53 to 2. It will be reconciled in a conference committee with a ?42.9 billion version passed by the House that does not contain the limousine amendment. * * * THE SENATE also passed two other appropriations bills in its rare Saturday session -- one providing $6.3 billion for Interior Department programs and $3.4 billion for military construction. These also must go to House-Senate conference committees to work out differences between versions passed by the House and Senate. The military construction measure reflects a sharp reduction from previous spending. Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., said it contains "the small- est number of projects in my memory." He said this is due, in part, to uncertainties from reductions in the number of individuals in the Armed Services and "realignments in the Army, Navy and Air Force bases." The Saturday session was called to clear away the appropriations measures - all Drovidin? funds for fisral vpar 1977 -- en the Senate could devote most of this week to the long-debated tax revision bill. Mansfield told reporters he still hopes Congress can make the June 30 deadline for extending income tax cuts that are due to expire on that date. * * * THE LIMOUSINE provision prohibits the use of U.S. funds by HUD, EPA, NASA, the V.A. and about a dozen other smaller agencies to "transport any officer or employe between his residence and his place of employment" with the exception of the HUD secretary. Sen. Charles McC. Mathias, R-Md., said that many officials in agencies not covered by the legislation also use government limousines for such purposes. "We'll have to get around to them later," he said in an interview. He also said the biggest problem would be getting the House conferees to agree to the measure. "I expect they'll be a fight in the conference committee," he said. In a floor statement, Mathias praised Proxmire for "setting such a frugal example by jogging to work." Mathias said the provision would not apply to providing government transportation for security reasons to female em- ployes who are called in by their bosses to work late-night hours.

State police at Williamson said Roberts was shot through the chest with a.22 caliber handgun outside his home Friday night, following an argument with Cline.
