VP says Country 4f ed up' LOS ANGELES (AP) If there's one message he's picked up in his series of do- mestic policy forums throughout the United States, says Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, it's that the American people are "fed up" with red tape and government bureaucracy. The message was loud and clear at the final forum here Tuesday, with two western governors urging Rockefeller to make Washington bureaucrats "get off our backs" with in- creasingly complex regulations and guidelines. "Everywhere we went we found the American people fed up with government bureaucracy and red tape. If there's one message we've gotten, that's the Vice President said. "We found people fed up with waste and duplication, with confusion and con- tradiction in federal aid programs. "We found people...fed up with the mountain of federal paperwork that is necessary just to move even a'molehill of a project. We found people fed up with government overregulation of slate and local government..." Jobs and red tape were the dominant subjects in the day long forum that attracted about government officials and private cilizens. Washington Gov. Dan Evans, a Republican, complaining about con- tradictory rules attached to federal grant programs, used the "get off our backs" phrase. Minutes later, Arizona Gov. Raul Castro, a Democrat, used the same line in his attack on red tape. Evans, an 11-year veteran of the governor's mansion, said that during the past two he has found "a geometric increase in the level of frustration in con- flicting rules and regulations coming from the federal government." One federal agency, he said, withheld funds from his stale for "reverse discrimination" due lo minority hiring efforts. Bui at the same time, he said, another agency threatened to cul funds because not enough was being done to hire minorities. President Ford's economic recovery plan was termed "a moral fraud and a pragmatic failure" by labor leader John Kenning. Kenning, head of the California AFL-C10, said administration projections of an average 7.9 per cent unemployment rale nexl year amount lo "unem- ployment by government design" caused by the "ruinious policies of Ihe national administration." Republican Mayor Pete Wilson of San Diego and stale Employment Director Marlin Click proposed federal lax subsidies for small business in hopes of providing new jobs. Click, appearing on behalf of California Democratic Gov. Edmund Brown Jr., urged creation of a publicly funded works program toi be by private in- dustry, easing of fiscal policies to encourage business expansion and tax laws thai would discourage American business from creating jobs in other countries. Against Kissinger Pike to drop charges WASHINGTON (AP) House intelligence com- mittee chairman Otis G. Pike said today he will drop contempt of Congress action against Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. The move came after the White House briefed a com- mittee delegation on Slale Department requests for covert U.S. operations abroad. Kissinger had refused lo give the panel documents covering the covert activities. Pike said information pro- duced at the briefing sub- stantially complied wilh a committee subpoena. Asked as he walked into the committee room this morning if he would drop the conlempl vole, Pike replied, "Yeah." Minules laler. Pike lold Ihe committee he planned lo go to the House floor laler in the day and "state thai we have substantial compliance on this subpoena and Ihe issue is mool." Pike made the an- nouncement after com- ment's Bureau of In- telligence, briefed the delegation in detail on 20 such Slate Department requests. Hyland read directly from the Stale Department recommendations and from minutes on highly sensitive National Security Council Committee consideration of the requests. Field said. Pike said earlier if the delegation reported reaching a satisfactory com prom ise. "obviously lhat ends the matter." The Now York Democrat said he had nol talked with any members who attended the briefing But two delegation members said the While House provided full details of the State Depart- ment requesls for covert operations, including Lwo that were rejecled. The two members also said they were confident Ihe delegation would recom- mend that the conlempl action against Kissinger should be dropped. mittee counsel A. Searle Field said the delegation 1 "WO lilt.
