c con gressman as his new White House counselor J Court Some pocket vetoes out c Washington StarNews Washington The US Court of Appeals here overturning a practice that extends back to the presidency of Andrew Johnson has ruled that a president may not use a pocket veto while Congress is still in session In a 23page opinion Wednes day the appellate court held that former president Richard M Nixon illegally vetoed a million Family Medical Aid Act approved by Congress in 1970 Nixon used the pocket veto to kill the act while Congress was in a fiveday adjournment over the Christmas holidays The court declared that pocket vetoes may be employed only when Congress is out of session one month each year and not when Congress is merely adjourned for holidays It ruled that the Family Medical Aid Act automatically became law Dec25 1970 despite Nixons pocket veto The ruling was largely academic as the law was only in for three years The pocket veto itself is a relatively obscure but legitimate prerogative of a president sanctioned in the Constitution Basically it is a method under which a president may simply let legislation die while Congress is not meeting The pocket veto however is absolute and may not be overturned by Congress thus making it an extremely powerful legislative and political tool Presidents have been employing the pocket veto for more than 100 years during congressionaladjournments but in recent years it has come under increased criticism by those who claim it was bsing used as a political device rather than legitimate method of legislative housekeeping Some Nixon opponents Nix on used the pocket veto six times while he was in office have complained that he employed it as a way to override the will of Congress The Court of Appeals ruling is he result of a lawsuit brought by Sen Edward Kennedy DMass a sponsor of the Family Medical Aid Bill Kennedy complained that Nixons veto of the bill came during the shortest recess in which a pocket veto had ever been used Says expansion is necessary Ford raps zero growth1 environmentalists Spokane Wash AP President Ford said today that zero growth environmental policies fly in the face of human nature and must be rejected in favor of reasonable com promises The President said last winters energy crisis demonstrated that the nation must mine and use more coal drill for more oil on the oceans continental shelf develop oil shale resources and speed con struction of nuclear power plants There are some wellmean ing people who see the en vironmentatissue as an either or proposition Ford said in a statement read at the Expo 74 world fair by Interior Secretary Rogers C B Morton They would make the en vironment the overriding con sideration in all our activities regardless of the consequences regardless of the sound middle ground alternatives that might be worked out Ford said although enviro jnmentalists argue for zero growth as the only course for world resource salvation their goal was impossible because man isnt built to vegetate or we like to progress we have ideas we have hopesl and dreams of a better world and that better world includes jobs and a better environment zero growth argument says we cant obtain a clean environmment and continue to tf expand at the same time It claims that we are exhausting all resources including the en vironment But it fails to take into con sideration the one inexhaustible mans creative abili ty As far as we can tell the frontier of creative scientific knowledge is limitless Ford said it was possible for the nation to have both en vironmental protection and economic expansion because of scientific potential He said his determination to compromise when environmental and economic positions conflict doesnt mean we are changing our unalterable course to im prove the environment It does mean stretching out the time table in some cases It does mean adjusting some of our longrange goals to ac commodate the needs of the immediate present It does mean some tradeoffs Banking committee oks task force Inflation bill goes to House floor Washington AP The House Banking Com mittee voted 27 to 7 today to give President Ford the Cost of Living task force he requested to monitor wage and price ac tions The proposal still faces action by the full House and by the Senate The bill will go to the House floor Monday under a parliamentary procedure which requires a twothirds vote for approval Sen John Sparkman DAla chairmar of the Senate Banking Committee said he hoped to win approval by the full Senate to day If the task force does not work i hope and believe the President is honest enough to come back to the Congress and ask for a more com prehensive program said Rep Wright Patmanj D Tex chairman of the House Banking Committee Many of us have doubts endorses proposal with some reservations about the effectiveness of this task force approach but lets give the Presidents suggestion a try he said Rep Tom Rees DCalif said this bill really does nothing The President can do this with an executive order right now This is only a vehicle to ap propriate million The AFLCIO endorsed the proposal today with some reservations In the name of honesty and fair dealing with the American public dontpretend this task force isan answer to the economic problems of America Andrew Biemiller chief lobbyist for the labor federation told the Senate committee Biemiller said the AFLCIO will go along with the task force but added it felt the makeup should include representatives of labor and management as well as government The Ford task force plan would include only representatives of the ex ecutive branch Biemiller said labor would have no part of another wage price control system such as that under President Richard Nixon The net result of that system Biemiller said was a decrease in workers buying power Sen Jacob K Javits R NY told the committee he felt the agency should be given authority to delay the im ple mentation of any unreasonable price or wage in crease for a period not in excess of 60 days t
