(US ARMY PHO- lo) Federal Funds Are Available For Mass Transit Development WASHINGTON CAP) -- The mass transit woes of many cities have one solution waiting for them in Washington. It's bushels of money--estimated at up to $4 billion--available hut virtually untouched for almost a year. All it takes is willingness by state and local governments to make a choice between roads, cars that use them and the fuel they use against energy-saving mass transit. Last August. Congress passed and President Nixon signed into law a bill freeing billions of dollars from the federal highway trust fund to be used for public transportation, such as buying buses or railcars, or other capital expenses. Yet, only one state has taken advantage of the law and one other has an application on file with the federal government, Massachusetts on Thursday received $671 million for use fnr public mass transit in the Bos ton area and for a section of highway in the southeastern part of the state. Pennsylvania has filed an application for the Philadelphia area, which could yield about $165 million. A spokesman for the Urbar Mass Transit Administration oi the Transportation Deparlmenl said more states have not taken advantage of the law because cities view public trans portation not as a service bu at a burden. A spokesman for DOT'S Federal Highway Ad ministration said there is ahnu $4 billion available for publii mass transit that cities have not sought. Asked if there were liabilitie: in requesting the money, the UMTA spokesman said, "Dis advantages? No. not that I can think of. if a state has done it research." - Money received under the ac would not cut back on othe Russellville City Election Postponed RUSSELLVILLE, Ark.
