Col. 5 By STAN lilCNJAMIN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (Al1) The Nixon administration proposed legislation Friday to delay certain clean-air (leadlines and permit, or even order, in- creased burning of coal. The package of proposals !o amend the Clean Air Act ot was unveiled al a news conference, by Russell E. Train, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. But Train said lie could not accept Iwo administration pro- posals to eliminate die law's protection of existing clean air, and lo iicrinil on-a- gain-off-again use of anlipollu- linii equipment depending on the weather. Those suggestions were also senl.lo Congress as "issues'1 for ils consideration, but nul as legislative proposals. The proposed amendments would postpone for Iwo years die full implementation of au- lomobnc antipolHition stand- ards. And they would permit cities having trouble with their Iransporlalion control plans lo delay for five, or even 10 years their compliance with clean-air standards. Here is a summary of the main administration proposals for amending Ihe Clean Air Ad: for Ihe Pre- sident lo require some power plants, on a case-by-case ba- sis, lo burn coal instead of oil or gas, until provided they do not violate air qnalily standards protecting human heallh, but suspending stand- ards designed lo protect Ihe environment. for temporary suspension of air polliillon emission limits uiilil Xitvem- lier 1974, if necessary fuel is available, provided no imini nenl or substantial health dan- ger is created. -A directive, iu case of coul shortage, for the I'residcnl to allocate coal lo those who can use it with the least environ- mental harm. --Authorization for MP.Y to exli'nd the (leadlines in stale plans for meeting air stand- ards prolecling the environ- ment, where supplies of clean fuels are lieiillli-prolccling standards would nol be postponed, and slates could enforce existing deadlines on the environmen- tal protection standards it they chose to do sn. lo postpone for five years the deadl'iies for cities lo meet clean-air stand- ards if their Iraiisportalion controls would o t h e r w i s e cause serious disruption; an additional five-year extension could Ue granted if necessary. said only a few cities such as Los Angeles miglil need mure than one live-year cxlention, for F.I'A to set standards specif- ic aulipollutioii design or c ii i ]i m e a 1 for pollution sources which cannol be con- trolled Ihrouuh emission or performance standards. for r'PA lo waive clean-air performance standards for new installations "In eni.mnage innovative am! control technolo- gy-" of civi! penalties of fini'S up to per day lor violations of air quality standards by s I a 1 i o 11 a r y sources, in addition ui the ex- isting criminal penalties prov- ided bv the Act. 1-27 Through Abilene Draws Support Inside Today Racing Driver Dies in Crash American racing driver Pet- er Rc-vson dies during n practice run in .Johannes- burg, South Africa, Stor- ies, Pp. 2A, 1C.
