Jesse Mcintosh, $io. 1 1971. For the moment, this appears to rule out any further slowdowns in the nation's road- building program. The highway bill reflects two weeks of hard negotiating by House and Senate conferees --. a compromise mixture of something old and something new. Most important is funding of final phases of the -Interstate program at the current $4 billion yearly level through fiscal 197(5. Authorization for regular non- Interstate highway work also match present spending: . $i.l billion for each of the next two- fiscal years, plus $125 million annually for" rural primary and secondary road projects. And states wili have $100 million a-, vaflable annually- for TOPICS, the Traffic Operations Program to Increase Capacity and Safety. ' This is a supplemental/plan for spot improvements needed to speed urban traffic flow. There about $325 million in trust fund revenue ear- irked for- traffic safety and research and for scenic enhancement/in the next biennium, and states^are authorized to spend fejleral highway money for special Jbus lanes, terminals, parking facilities and similar highway - oriented mass transit needs. But Congress again went on record opposing diversion of ghighway - user taxes for rail rapid transit or for purchase of rolling stock. • Turn Signals Although, the framework remains essentially the same, Congress did alter the highway program's course and impact in several major areas. Sonie of the significant changes: * Creation of a new federal aid urban system, providing $100 million in each of the next two. years for construction and improvement of arterial streets j to be designated' by local and state officials. Setting aside $250 million during the biennium for a special program to replace. hazardous bridges spanning major waterways. Federal share of costs will be 75%. . * After mid-1973, the federal contribution for all primary, secondary and urban F-A projects will be upped from the present 50% to 70%. Interstate matching will remain at the present 90-10. * Authorizing $100 million from the Highway Trust Fund in the coming two years to help "revitalize and diversify the eco • nomy of rural areas.and smaller communities" by providing better highway access. These projects will generally be 70-30 matching. '* More stringent soil erosion and other environmental controls for highway construction. • * Thorough evaluation of the peripheral social and economic impact of urban highway projects made in cooperation with, local agencies, followed by a. public Teport of all findings. . Checking Account Indiana will get about $42.4 million as its share of the $2.15 billion just released by the Federal Highway Administration for the next two fiscal quarters. This is well below the level of Indiana's contribution^ to the Highway Trust Fund (about^$142 million annual' ly) and the full allocation it has received in past years ($105 million). .Nor'.does the action rescind last July's across-the- board 16% reduction in. federal highway disbursements for the. present, fiscal year. It does keep Indiana's road-. building program, in motion, however, albeit hot high gear. Like many other states, Indiana has been matching reduced federal road funds as fast as they have become available. Had these la-. .test allocations not been made, the State Highway. Commission, would have been virtually out of business by next spring. Coming when it did, the FHA's announcement also would seem to extinguish the rumor that there would be another massive cutback in federal - aid.road funds after the first of the year. . |l I Closing the Gap f • With the opening of a 26-mile 1-65 section between U. S. 24 at Wolcott and'ind? 25 east 1 of Lafayette,. Indiana now has more than 900 miles of its planned 1;130 - mile Interstate system in use. Speaking at the December 18 dedication, Gov. Edgar D. Whitcomb. said, "Interstate 65 is a particularly significant highway because it will link Indiana north and south, from" border to border.'' •' " .Prof. Harold L.

Hardin to reverse actions in the European Community that work against imports of U.S. farm products. The EC is the American farmer's largest export market. Secretary Hardin who returned i recently from a 15-day, 8-nahon trade policy tour expressed the concerns the United States has about some agricultural trade policies of the EC. He expressed concern over high grain prices in the EC, over the preferential arrangements the EC lias negotiated with Mediterranean citrus producers, and over the Common Agricultural Policy for tobacco. Summing up in a London press conference prior to returning to the U.S., Mr. Hardin said "High - grain prices which discourage utilization within the Community results in surpluses that undermine "and interfere with our legitimate trade when they are pushed into world trade channels with heavy (subsidies." He 'said the preferential arrangements with Mediterranean citrus producers "discriminate against U.S. citrus growers who are producing, and marketing without a subsidy." He described the CAP for tobacco as being incompatible with provisions'of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and said, "the buyers' premium which provides as in­ centive to buyers within the Community to purchase leaf produced within the Community, is discriminatory and harmful to U.S. and other world producers." The ASC Chairman quoted Secretary Hardin who emphasized in his talks throughout Europe that the U.S. takes "a most serious view toward actions that threaten the U.S. farmer's largest market $1.3 billion to EC countries last fiscal year and a larger amount in earlier years." The Secretary also said, "we ! are quite interested in the agricultural terms of the: United 1 Kingdom's negotiation for EC membership and we° aire concerned, about that government's new agricultural policy. i; • • ' "We have stressed the need/' be said, "for new and immediate initiatives by .the EC to signal a liberalization of attitudes toward agricultural' production and trade." The Secretary headed a 10- man trade policy team that also included Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Clarence D.Palmby, Assistant Secretary of Commerce Lawrence A. Fox, and two members of the . President's Commission on International Trade and Investment Policy. The team conferred In Bucharest, Belgrade, Rome, Paris, The Hague, Bonn, Brussels, and London.
