Bid Is Submitted On Sugar Bottom Resurfacing Work IOWA CITY L. L. Felling Co. of Iowa City, submitted the apparent low bid of to the Rock Island district, corps of engineers, this week to resur- face access roads from the north and east into the Sugar Bottom public use area at Coralville. The government estimate for this work was One access road extends west into the public use area from a Johnson county road between Iowa City and Solon. The second access road extends south into tho public use area from the east side of the Mehaffey which crosses Coralville south of Lake Macbride state park. One of the two access roads will remain open for traf- fic at all times during the resur- facing. This work will begin within 15 days after the successful bidder receives notice to proceed and the road resurfacing is to be completed 60 days after notice to proceed is received by the contractor. committee itself and bypassed two other bills with conscience clauses that have been in the possession of the human re- sources committee. The committee bill is a bit dif- ferent in that it not only man- dates that no individual may be required to participate in an abortion against his religious beliefs or moral convictions, but it also provides there can be no discrimination against an indi- vidual who does participate in performing an abortion! Hospitals would not be re- quired to permit abortions, unless they are supported with public funds. The only excep- tion for private hospitals not wishing to permit abortions would he in instances where the procedure would save the life of the mother. One section of the bill makes ,t clear officials of hospitals where abortions are permitted cannot be prohibited from inqui- ring of employes, prospective employes or persons with staff privileges or who might be given staff privileges, whether they would refuse to participate in an abortion. The bill does ,not provide pen- alties for violations of its provi- sions. Te said the money in the mu- nicipal assistance fund could be used by local communities for almost any public purpose, in- cluding sewage works. He said determining every year which cities are going to get sewage works grants is like a gambling game.

John Keokuk) the Clark (R bill won! send the sewer works money I the places where it is needee Communities have applied fo the funds and already budgete it, he said. The allocation through th municipal assistance funt Clark said, would amount t only a little more than pe capita, which wouldn't b enough to build any kind of municipal sewage system. Th amendment was defeated 76-16. Eligible The grant swould go to munic ipalities which are eligible fo 75 percent sewage work con slruction grants under the feder al water pollution control act.
