EDITORIAL Boulevard of Broken Dream HH Issues remain for superport Superport legislation has approved In both HOUK and Senate, and U wouW tptMW- from this thai «Nm far along the road toward getting to offshore port butit near a* Bratoria County coastline. I Howerer, UM Home and Senate I bins differ on the same key points of {controversy that have blocked {consideration of any bin for two tyeatft. Congress has yet to resolve ; these potato. And In view of election f campaign and bo&day^ the rest of ithtoteMionofOortgresshas very few t work-weeks raft. t The baste issue is still whether the i permit-granting authority will favor ! private or public ownership and i operation. White this issue has been bitter and the adversaries determined, U doesn't appear to tevohre a significant number of coup The House bill, considered favorable to private ownership, was approved Jtt to 9, The Senate bill stated clearly that a publk agency would get flrsi priority. Second PrtoritT wouW be private Interests ; not connected w»Uj the oO industry '.TWs would preclude Seadock ownership, Yet with this difference, , the b!Q still had * vote of TM, nearly identical in proportion to the House vote. dearly, not many members of Congress care one way or another in ,« controversy that has held up legislation for two years. Through last year and the first few months of J*74, two House committees, each with a different bin, resisted alt efforts toward compromise. Both were reported ouL The House didn't want a floor fight over a public-prime issue, so the biBs .were sent back to their Rep. Bob Eckhan* of Houstoo. a member , of one of the two committees with opposing bills, is credited with breaking the stalemate Seadock representatives who sought his help view the parliamentary feat with admiration. The bill favoring pubHc ownership was scheduled for floor consideration. Eckbardt engineered support for an amendment thai substituted the entirety of the provision* of the opposing bin for the wording of the bit! under consideration. This version left the matter of ownership up to the permit-granting authority, with no form of ownership favored. With this amendment approved, the bill Itself passed overwhelmingly. The Texas Offshore Terminal Commission has favored public ownership But Joe Altbritton, its chairman, told The Fact* it wouldn't make much difference. Seadoek, he sakt was the only orgatusaticR prepared to build and operate the dock. The consortium would undoubtedly get the permit under a bill tea vingownershtpopeft U Texas got the permit, the stale or any subdivision wtmki almost certainly contract with Seadoek to build and operate Use facility. Another troublesome provision remains in the Senate bill. Probably instigated by Rep. Jack Brooks (whose constituency includes Galvrsttm). the federal government would be prohibited from boutag a permit for an offshore luperport if there were at that tiro* a permit application tor an inshore dredged port. If this provision remains in the biU, GatvesiINIcoukJ and would haw an application that would indefinitely block a permit tor an offshore port, it's to be hoped that this is the first point to be eUminattd in the conference committee compromise TH* WlA*»rO*T fACTl Comment and Opinion «.l*H :—U MERRY-GO-XOUND Proposed Bicentennia slogans pouring in *« „.._.. — Wf tew teen ^..i^_..•• • •-- •- • - r - •• team* ateM ABMrira tn» Wt pMott rtrtik*". ***. <Mi Mary . .t|KM«aaifomi. wa» of ttomaadi of r%«B» ClUimitif of fpnam, CaM. ant Kwl 4fc*s< ttew wtttft* «M A WORD EDGEWISE Soviet armaments discredit detente . *»*«*<*» &*«* mat *ft*»»M» aw , w* ***** . «w* te <*»y » UW4JI *f tUrfe t» W«t pt*pr»» like HprmHter o< * in ro? rttort* to (•< "XAtteoat tMcttODu aaar«tT<iar> o< Ifc* Yarn Ktppw attwHili but ri«o wtuwui iMtrkAA p«««>*r timuM iaa« out u> MM** Die norm* <* dwtcnte «*» «* (Mat ft* fetfi« WfttMltt usft» (fat iwi siNt IVwwiimJ! «««f fkflt 4*««H«i» IP i;w*» * b* «* «* * ttftwr* ft*** J *j(m« to** w »** " our leaker.
