"I would not be the one to initiate that," she said. "I for two years have stood up there and tried. very hard in this struggle. It's been very taxing. It's time for somebody else. I'll be there, but in the background." She could not say who that might be. Thursday's referendum had 593 votes in- favor of the project and 372 Votes against it. On Jan. 31, tribal voters defeated the proposed waste site 490 to 360. The- tribal council called the secdnd vote after receiving more than 700 petition signatures asking for a chance to reconsider. The tribe's leaders along with.a consortium of more than 30 power companies want to build a site to store spent nuclear fuel and other wastes for 40 years until a permanent waste site can betieveioped. The project still faces a number of hurdles, including negotiation of a final contract between the tribe and the companies and regulatory approvals. U.S. Kep. Joe Skeen, R N.M., whose district includes the proposed site, issued a statement rnd4y,jijuestioning the outcome of th .vote. "The" tribal leaders claim their members didn't have time to fully understand this complicated issue"-before the first election, Skeen said. "But I wonder if a second vote would have been necessary had they won the first vot.--- "I can't in good conscience recognize the credibility or sanctity of this second vote," Skeen said.ii Tribal leaders say the waste sit wowld bring about $250 mil-li0flJnJdirect and indirect benefits to ihe tribe. Silas Cochise, a tribal council member who has been in charge of the project, said the money is needed to improve the reservation's school system and enhance the overall quality of life. "Tflff surrounding region is also expected to benefit economically from the project," Cochise said. But communities surrounding the rmcrvation adamantly oppose the project. "For .those of us here in the Ruidosd area ... we still don't feel it's appropriate to have this thing out here." said Joan Bailey, exeouttve director of the Ruidoso VuniyChamber of Commerce. Angle McBrien, spokeswoman for the Nuclear Energy Institute industry association, said tribal votersrnow "can choose to reap the benefits of a win-win deal." "W.hile we are pleased to see the continued potential for a private, futility, the industry as a whoU in fully focused on securing federal legislation to build a federal interim storage facility by 199S, McBrien said, reading from mn industry statement.

A round-table discussion on the future of environmentally conscious design from a political perspective will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 14, in the Corbett Center Ballroom. The invited speaker is Charyl Burger of Los Alamos National Laboratory. The session is part of the Third International Congress on Environmentally Conscious Design and Manufacturing will be held March 12-15 at New Mexico State University's Corbett Center. About 70 engineers, scientists and administrators from industry and business will attend workshops on the holistic approach to industrial production in the 21st Century, said Abbas Ghassemi, technology officer of the NMSU Waste-management Education and Research Consortium (WERC), a conference co-sponsor. The approach requires factories of the future to consider waste as a key component of the manufacturing cycle. Proponents of environmentally conscious manufacturing look for ways to reuse waste or to reduce its environmental impact. The approach can be applied to agricultural, mining and petroleum production as well as manufacturing cycles, Ghassemi said. "This is the future of the environmentally friendly production cycle," he said. "The future belongs to organizations that can produce goods while recognizing the environmental impact. Pollution has a cost associated with it." Leading workshops will be rep- SEE 30,000 RUGS MEXICAN-NAVAJO-ORIENTAL-KILIMS HUGE 36,000 SQ. FT. SHOWROOM EL PASO SADDLEBLANKET CO. 601 N.
