VVhile no indictment of a sitting member is being considered, the Justice Department believes 15 to 18 incumbents "could be involved in problems that should be , referred to the House Eithics Committee," Panetta said. The Justice Department also believes at least some officials knew of the South Korean campaign to influence Congress as early as 1972' and is "proceeding to investigate how much (former Attorney General John) Mitchell 'knew," he said.

Telephone 468-0123 newly amended bill (SB1015) by Sen. Newton R. Russell, R- Tujunga, tfi the Assembly where it faces an uncertain future. Opponents charged that Russell, who inserted the Sundesert provision into, thie bill two weeks ago, sought to rush it through the Senate without giving lawmakers an opportunity to fully examine the Energy Commission's recommendation. The state laws,' enacted in 1976, forbid construction of any new nuclear power plants until the federal government has approved a reliable method for nuclear waste disposal. By the same 4-1 vote, the commission agreed to tell the Legislature that ai proven method of nuclear waste disposal does not exist. Sundesert is proposed for a site near Blythe in Riverside County by^n eight-member consortium led by San Diego Gas & Electric Co. '• As originally planned, the $3 billion project would have consisted of two 950-megawatt units scheduled for operation in 1984 and 1986. "The commission last month approved only half the • project. If given an exemption, Sundesert stiU would need the commission's approval to begin construction , a procedure that requires 18 months of hearings. Sundesert backers are hopeful a measure scheduled to come before the Senate today will clear up the project's uncertain status. Sen. Newton Russell, R- Tujunga, said he will call for a floor vote on a bill (SB1015) to flatly exempt Sundesert from the nuclear laws regardless of the commission's findings. , Russell, who amended a relatively minor bill two weeks ago to include the Sundesert provision, said he is optimistic the measure will rec^ve a necessary 21- majority vote in the Senate. He conceded it would be more difficult to find a sympathic majority among the Assembly's 80 members. RusseU said Brown's resources Secretary, Huey Johnson, prepared a memo last December detailing various ways state departments could help develop non-nuclear alternatives to Sundesert. "The thrust of the document seems to be knocking out Sundesert," he said. "I'm not saying the administration was doing anything improperly, because we need alternative sources of energy. "The Qoncem I have is. that it has happened just since November or December, and seems to be coming at a time the Sundesert countdown is upon us. It looks like the whole purpose is to find ways the Sundesert plant can be shot down."
