"The simple facts," claimed Blum, are that Reagan, while governor, vetoed an air quality auto emissions standard law, passed by the California Legislature in 1971, that was stiffer than the federal Clean Air Act. That same year, she said, the Republican objected to another measure passed by the Legislature that would have provided a full-time state board to MAKE SUNDAYS A FAMILY AFFAIR Children Under 12 Eat FREE from Noon 10 P.M. from our Children's Menu or These Specials SUNDAY DINNER BUFFET Noon to 2 P.M.

CHICKEN FRICASSE or SPAGHETTI 8, MEATBALLS $3.95 that would have created a full-time Air Resources Board and a strong regional agency for the Los Angeles area, she By ELIZABETH SLATER MONTPELIER? Barbara Blum, deputy administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, disclaimed any responsibility by her agency Thursday for suggestions that Vermont might be a future dumping site for nuclear wastes. She said such a move would be impossible without Congressional consent, if Vermonters themselves opposed it. The Carter appointee, in Vermont campaigning for her boss, said the original idea that Vermont might be a nuclear waste disposal site came from a study contracted by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The study pinpointed Vermont, with ti granite deposits, as one of 16 potential wastes sites nationwide. Blum said she was unfamiliar with the laws governing NRC, but believed the NRC would be the agency to select any future dumping sites for nuclear waste. But in doing so, she noted, the agency must follow standards now being prepared by the EPA. Blum said the NRC would have look elsewhere for dumping sites if a state banned nuclear waste disposals, as some Vermont lawmakers have proposed unsuccessfully in the past. But "obviously, if all 16 (potential sites) banned it," she added, a Congressional "override" to state bans might be secured to dump the waste materials.

Blum, ushered through Vermont Thursday on a tight schedule by Carter Democrats, had more on her mind than nuclear wastes, however. In a prepared press release, the EPA official attacked Carter's Republican foe for statements made about air quality control, efforts during the televised presidential debate earlier this week. Blum accused former California Gov. Ronald Reagan of uttering "false and misleading statements" when he contended that, when governor, he had no quarrel with air quality control laws, only federal regulations. said, and in 1973, appointed members to that boarijl that "delayed" until 1979 putting into effect strict auto em missions standards that had been proposed by the Includinq Salad Bar.
