by MICHAEL DARNALL Wentworth and Kuempel liked session Call it most productive in memory By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer The Texas Legislation has ended its 1995 session and local representatives are calling it the best in years I thought this was the most successful session Ive been part of in the seven terms Ive said Slate Rep Edmund Kuempel Legislative leaders said the passage of several bills made il a success These included bills regard ing tort reform juvenile crime welfare reform and education reform State Sen Jeff Wentworth said these bills were the major focus of Gov George Bushs campaign and the fact that they passed showed great focus by the governor as well as great cooperation among all the leaders This to me was the most productive positive and harmonious session ever We had leaders who were more interested in solving problems than in gaining individual partisan said Wentworth Wentworth said the most critical bill passed dur ing the session was the one addressing the Edwards Underground Water District and the need for pump ing limits He said there was another aspect of the session which he was very proud of He said that in a 1990 special session the Texas Tuition Assis tance Grant Program was formed However he said the bill was useless because no funds were appro priated for it Wentworth said he threatened to vote no on any budget proposal until an appropriation was made He said the legislature listened and appro priated for a twoyear pilot program I think its the most significant but overlooked pail of the he said However not all the bills were passed Went worth said there were bills and resolutions pre sented Of these he said only passed Wentworth said the one bill he would have espe cially liked to see pass was one regarding open He said the bill would have required the media and the public to be aware of meetings where staff members brief board members Wentworth said these briefings usually turn into discussions where major opinions are formed and they should not be held behind closed doors Kuempel suid there were bills he also would have liked to see pass but did not He said these included bills regarding term limits initiatives and referen dums and parental consent for minors wanting abortions However not all the bills passed by the legislature were considered beneficial to the public Went worth said he opposses a new law that calls for electing the directors of the San Antonio transit system because the public does not have enough interest to become informed about the issues and candidates Kuempel was more optimistic and said he does not believe that any of the bills were bad However he said that opinion may change later After the interpretation of some 1 may change my mind but J cant think of any bad bills off the top of my said Kuempel Comal Springs bugs may get federal protection By SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND Staff Writer The Fish and Wildlife Service is tak ing a giant step toward including three tiny Comal Springs animals on the endangered species list Monday the USFW will formal ly propose that the Comal Springs riffle bee tle the Comal Springs dryopid beetle and the Pecks Cave arthropod be classified as endangered All three species arc about an eighth of an inch long and live in the water The move strengthens the argument lor saving the Comal Springs Friends For Rivers President David Davenport said Again il supports the spring flow keeping the aquifer he said Parks and Recreation Director David Whatlcy petitioned the USFW back in 1990 to add the three species and two others to the endangered list The USFW gave the nod to the three after field surveys and other research Once formally proposed the three species will have to wait for about another year of public comment and data gathering before becoming officially endangered The Endan gered Species Act is up for in Congress and critics of the bill arc lighting for changes that would make economic fac Comal Springs riffle beetle tors more important than they are now A moratorium on adding new species to the list was passed earlier this year and lasts until September The Endangered Species Act began to save treasured species like the bald eagle Davenport said Protecting species like the Comal Springs rillle beetle or the fountain darter is a matter of sax ing the whole ecosys tem he said not just saving some tiny ani mals that few people know about 1 always thought of the fountain darter as the canary in the he said If thai canary dies then main other species all the way down the mer to the coast will be Know
