New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 11, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung rj Wednesday December g 9A Clinton advisers split over leadership of economic council ByTOMRAUM Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON As he turns to completing his secondterm economic team President Clinton faces a difficult decision on his prized National Economic Council Should it be a oneheaded or twoheaded beast His advisers are deeply divided The outcome will have a strong bearing on how Clinton conducts economic policy in his second term 1 Clinton created the council as one of his first acts in office in January 1993 to parallel the nearly 50yearold National Security Council He said in his 1992 campaign it would be his principal instrument for fulfilling his promise to make the economy his top priority But the council which got off to a good start under Robert Rubin now Treasury secretary has had some rocky times over its fouryear history Now Clinton reportedly is weighing splitting its leadership into economic and international spheres according to aides who spoke on the condition of anonymity The notion has the support of Rubin but is generally getting negative reviews elsewhere both inside and outside the White House Not speaking to the particular people I think its very hard for any institution any organization to work effectively with divided said economist Robert Shapiro of the Progressive Policy Institute a moderate Democratic research group with close ties to Clinton The current chief Laura Tyson is returning to California where she was an economist at the University of California Berkeley before joining the administration Specifically Clinton is said to be considering splitting the job between deputies Gene Sperling and Daniel Turullo That would be driven in large part by a desire by Clinton to reward Sperling one of his hardest working staffers and his top 1992 economic aide However Sperling 38 generally lacks the seasoning and experience of either Rubin or Tyson and has had little practical experience in either management or international relations Turullo was economic assistant secretary of state and has been dealing with international issues since taking the deputys job last February Its aJbad said Destler director for the Center for International and Security Studies at the University of Maryland and author of a book on the NEC One of the key purposes for the council was to connect domestic and international economic Federal government plans regulations to prevent repetitive stress injuries By CASSANDRA BURRELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON Labor officials on regular inspections will begin checking workplaces for conditions that lead to repetitive stress injuries the fastest growing jobrelated impairments Labor Secretary Robert Reich says The government also is moving ahead with new regulations to prevent the injuries now that it has been freed from congressional restraints Reich said Tuesday Here we have a great deal of evidence mounting evidence that a problem he told reporters It is not fair to the American worker to the hundreds of thousands if not millions of people exposed to repetitive stress injuries every day at the work place to deny them the opportunity for the full airing of the issues the data and the possible range of Provisions that Congress included in the 1995 and 1996 spending bills prevented the Labor Department from developing the new standards But pressure from the Clinton administration kept those provisions out of the current budget Reich said Repetitive motion injuries comprise more than 100 different types of jobrelated injuries and illnesses that result from wear and tear on the body with some so crippling they require surgery the department says 1 The most common causes of injury are assemblyline speedups repetitive and heavy lifting and long hours spent typing at keyboards Reich said The government has brought about 400 cases to court since 1985 and all but two have been settled out of court said Joseph A Dear assistant labor secretary In a verdict made public Monday a federal jury in New York City ordered Digital Equipment Co to pay nearly million to three women who blamed keyboards for disabling arm and wrist injuries It was the first time a computer maker has been found liable in such a case Reich and Dear couldnt say when the new regulations would be ready but they said resistance from business groups could slow the process Until then the government will continue to enforce a statute requiring employers to maintain workplaces free of recognized hazards they said Last year the Occupational Safety and Health Administration performed about inspections either regularly scheduled or in response to complaints It is in the interests of businesses to prevent these Reich said The secretary added that work on the regulations will continue after he leaves the Clinton administration in January The
