CAP Wirephoto) EPA, Democrats Join Forces To Block Easing Ol Controls WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Environmental Prolectioin Agency has joined forces with liberal Democrats in the House to fight a proposed anu'ndment that would take exhaust controls off roughly two-thirds of the nation's automobiles. The measure by Rep. Louis C. Wymaii. a conservative New Hampshire Republican, has gained support since it first was introduced last December. Opponents privately concede that it has a chance of passing if Wyman goes through with his plans to offer it as an amendment to environmental legislation scheduled for floor action this week. Wymnn's amendment wiulc suspend nil emission control requirements for Eiutomohiles registered to persons living in parts of the country with no significant air pollution nrob lorn. According to W y m a n , onb cars in 13 metropolitan area? approximately one-third of the total number of registered ve hieles--still would require con trols. MR claims that removal ol controls from cars in the resl of the country--approximate!} 15 per cent of the geographical area of the United States-- vould save billions of gallons of gasoline a year and at the same lime spare motorists the expense of purchasing vehicles equipped with costly antipollu- .ion devices. The EPA, working with Rep. Paul G. Rogers, D-La.. chairman of the health and environment subcommittee, says Wyman's amendment would be a disaster. emasculating the Clean Air Act while achieving little fuel savings. At a recent hearing of the House Commerce Committee. EPA Administrator Russell E. Train said removal of control devices would result in only a 3 [er cent saving of gasoline and that the air in Gfi cities with 85 per cent of the population would become unhc-nl'hy. When Wyman firs 1 , olfered his proposal as an amendment to the emergency energy bill later vetoed by President Nixon, it was defeated by a 210-180 margin. Most observers agree that its chances of passage have improved since then. But few foresee that the Wyman amendment will pass the Senate and become law.
