Ray said Tuesday the legislature should pass a bill this session to require various levels of Iowa government to take and accept bids on government purchases. The governor's office is having a bill drafted that would require cities, counties and state agencies to advertise for bids. They would have to open the bids in public and accept the lowest bid received. "We don't have a bidding law for different levels of government," said Ray. "I felt it would be good to have a law." Ray said the purpose of the measure isn't "to throw stones at public officials" who make purchases for their governmental unit. He said the measure is aimed at getting the "best buy" for the taxpayers. Wythe Willey, an aide to Gov. Ray, said that although there is a bidding law for Iowa it's "not a very good law for the state." The measure said Willey, wouldn't impose any legal requirements on government agencies when their purchases are $500 or less. But for purchase from $500 to $2,500, agencies would have to seek competitive bids. For those purchases over $2,500 agencies would be required to accept the lowest bid. Toxic Workshop AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State University will host Feb. 21-26 what is described as the first national veterinary toxicology workshop. Officials said the sessions will stress recent data on pesticides, food additives and natural toxicants in animal feeds, as well as food produced for human consumption. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Air Force proposes to burn in Texas or Illinois 2.3 million gallons of a plant killer that was banned in Vietnam after tests showed it may have caused animal birth defects. The disposal methods were proposed in an environmental- impact statement filed earlier this month with federal and state agencies in Texas, Illinois and Mississippi. The herbicide, code-named Orange, would be burned in commercial incinerators in Deer Park, Tex., or at Sauget, 111., across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. The proposal, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press following inquiries, is subject to comment by the agencies to which it was sub- : mitted. They have 30 days tQ : respond. If significant controversy is aroused, the Air Force may hold a public hearing before turning in the final impact statement to the Environmental Protection Agency. "This action is not considered to have an adverse effect on the environment," the Air Force said. "The probable environmental consequences of the proposed action will be minor or insignificant." Orange was the defoliant most commonly used in Vietnam to strip away jungle cover concealing enemy troops and supplies. The Defense Department banned its use in 1970, shortly after the Agriculture Department banned the herbicide 2,4,5-T— the principal ingredient of Orange— around homes, water areas and food crops. This followed laboratory tests in­ dicating it retarded growth and caused birth defects in rodents. The Air Force was left with 2.3 million gallons of Orange worth $16.9 million, most of which is stored in 55-gallon steel drums in Vietnam. Although two sites are under consideration for disposal, the Air Force has not made the final selection and no contracts have been let. Under the Air Force's draft statement, the herbicide would be incinerated at a rate of 2,000 to 5,000 gallons a day, producing a total of 44.6 million pounds of carbon dioxide, a nontoxic gas, and 12.4 million pounds of hydrogen chloride, which would be converted into sodium chloride, or common salt. "The 'adverse' environmental ^effects which cannot be avoided are the generation and discharge of combustion byproducts and liquid effluent residue into the atmosphere and public waterways," the Air Force said. It added that this would "not adversely affect human health, esthetically or culturally valuable surroundings, standards of living or other aspects of life." "The alternative of no action would maintain the stock in drums at Gulfport, Miss.; Elgin Air Force Base, Fla.; Kelly AFB, Tex.; South Vietnam or other storage sites," the Air Force said. However, the drums would gradually deteriorate and leakage would cause environmental problems, the A ir Force explained.
