financing the anti pipeline fight Despite Gov Charles urging that the 1983 General Assem bly table the issue for at least a year and despite at tempts to negotiate behind the scene deals that would delay the is sue for this session it is a fight that gone away Billed in advance as the legisla tive battle of the industry titans big utilities big rails big coal are pitting their financial resources their political connections and star studded teams of lobbyists against each other By some estimates the two sides will spend nearly half a million dollars each before the session ends next month 4 A it 5 Main St Salem VA Mon Sat 10 6 389 9222 Extend ban on uranium min ing for one year: in Senate commit tee Establish separate mandato ry sentences for using in certain crimes handgun ammunition that can pierce armored vests: in House committee Timex Corporation is proud to announce: The Opening of a t'T fl I I ill I Slurry The ultimate winner might not be determined for years But the first major test of strength should come Tuesday when the Vepco backed bill clearing the way for the construction comes up for a 10 am public hearing before theHouse Committee on Corporations Insurance and Banking An informal survey taken by the Roanoke Times World News indicated at the start that pipeline opponents have sufficient votes on that committee to kill the legislation But there were enough commit tee members saying only that they were against or towards voting no" to keep the question up in the air Proponents say they dis couraged Lobbying after all is the art of persuasion and their head counts indicate that they would have to persuade only a few votes to get the measure to the House floor One on one lobbying has con centrated thus far on members of the corporations committee and those who serve on the House Courts of Justice Committee The latter unit will consider a simpler pipeline proposal intro duced by Southwest Virginia dele gates that would merely lift the state prohibition against the grant ing of eminent domain for a coal slurry pipeline That has been re cently endorsed by the Virginia Coal Association which had earlier planned to stay neutral in the pipe line debate The bill pushed by Vepco and Transco Coal Co is enabling legisla tion that would set the construction plans in motion It would give the State Corporations Commission the power to authorize and regulate the line Legislators on the committees where the battle is focused say that lobbying by both sides has been in tense though not as heated as they had expected very persistent lobbying" said Delegate Richard Bagley Hampton question about said Delegate Glenn McClanan Virginia Beach commenting that pipeline people are everywhere in all the corridors and along the waiting to comer legis lators to talk about the bills But real high pres sure said Delegate Samuel campaigns been very said Delegate Kenneth Plum Reston just much more volu minous than I can digest in the mid dle of the But Plum who counts himself among those who are undecided said the personal lobbying actually has been gentle The party earlier this week where Dalton and the unions embraced for a common cause was an example of the gentle lobbying It was an elegant but low key event at exclusive Common wealth Club where Dalton a CSX board member and a registered CSX lobbyist called it a tragedy that pipeline legislation had reared its head this year Dalton reminded lis teners that as governor he had helped sell CSX and Norfolk South ern on keeping their corporate head quarters in Virginia Part of his sales pitch included the promise that they would not have to worry about a pipeline competing with them here He suggested it would be a breach of faith for the legislature to overturn the pipeline prohibition Dalton and former Sen William Hopkins of Roanoke also a regis tered lobbyist for the railroads de livered that same message at another railroad sponsored party at the Commonwealth Club for mem bers of the Senate last week The night before that the club was the setting for a party thrown by Transco Several other pipeline related social events are scheduled in the next several days But the big bashes are only a small part of the persuasion tactics legislators and lobbyists say Only courtesies that change no minds on an issue they say are very refined lobby said McClanan suggesting that they go about their business with skill and finesse rather than re lying on hard sell pressures and wining and dining tactics bought anybody din ner not my said Wil liam Thomas the coordinating lobbyist for the Vepco forces Nevertheless Thomas and his law partner Walter Marston seem to be omnipresent in the places where legislators can be found Dalton though he had said he would not be
