Gov. Singel recycling programs by it. Gov. Mark s. Singel with the heightened awareness this month of our environment through the various Earth Day celebrations Many pennsylvanians paying close attention to ongoing efforts to promote clean air clean water and clean land. A primary concern of mine is the implementation of our exciting statewide recycling program in Pennsylvania. While we have an aggressive recycling Law on the books today the recycling Story goes beyond conservation and collection. It also involves the re use of recycled materials. As chairman of a Cabinet level task Force on recycling Market development established by gov. Robert p. Casey last year i have led an intensive Effort to find new outlets for recycled materials. We have developed the link of recycling using recycled materials and creating markets for recycled products. In Pennsylvania we connecting the recycling link in a very positive comprehensive manner. Let me offer two examples. Recently i visited West Chester in Chester county to announce an innovative recycling demonstration project to collect and re use plastic beverage containers and milk jugs in that Community.

Washington merry go round is Bush the polluters president ? by Jack Anderson and Dale Van Atta Washington president Bush is in a Tough spot but it s a spot of his own making. He has billed himself As an environmental president but he has plenty of financial backers who want him to be the polluters industries at the Core of our nation s environmental problems found a Friend in the Reagan administration and got comfortable being in the seat of Power. When Bush ran for president in 15 88, they settled deeper into that seat by giving him the Money he needed to win the election. The Bush Campaign apparatus gave the big donors the spiffy title of team 100" a select group of generous republicans who gave Bush at feast $100,000 each. Now team 100 expects to see some return on its investment. A prime example of the team 100 influence is the Oil Industry. Many of those $100,000 checks known As soft Money came from Oil companies. Campaign finance records show that Oil companies and their corporate Heads gave More than $1 million to i he hush race. A number of those companies interested in offshore drilling ventures off the coasts of California and Florida. That worries environmentalists across the country who want the Ocean floors left alone but who feel powerless when pitted against l he Rich friends of the president. The administration is leaning in favor of the Oil fat cats. Interior Secretary Manuel la Jan is clearly opposed to the bans Congress has placed on offshore drilling. At a news conference Bush said he refuses to Rule out All offshore drilling. Lujan and Bush claim the drilling can be done without harming the environment but environmentalists wonder what the incentive will be for companies to handle the Ocean with care if those companies have the Power to twist the president s Arm. The record Speaks for itself. Federal officials have uncovered More than 10,000 environmental and safety violations Over the past six years in the offshore drilling Industry. U anything threatens Bush s credibility on his environmental promises it is his longtime ties to the Oil business. He made his Fortune As a Texas Oil Man. He loves the business and the Money it brings to his campaigns. Bush can t be counted on to get in the Way of a few Oil Barons looking for drilling opportunities offshore. The White House pledge to save the environment is also being stymied by Bush s combative chief of staff John Sununu. On several occasions Sununu has butted Heads with environmental Protection Agency head William Reilly when Reilly has tried to crack Down on polluters. Sununu makes a formidable enforcer for the president and his cronies. When will they learn if it in t one problem it s another for housing and Urban development Secretary Jack Kemp. Despite his concerted efforts to rid Hud of ethical Booby traps and conflicts of interest there still holes in the system. A congressional investigation shows that Hud has been extremely lax in collecting and reviewing the financial disclosure statements of its workers. Those statements supposed to raise a red Flag if a Hud employee has a possible conflict of interest on the Job that might Lead to preferential treatment of contractors. Preferential treatment is what got Hud in trouble in the first place but the Agency in t learning from past blunders. A random Sample of 62 Hud employees showed that Only 10 of them had filed disclosure statements although the rest had been on the Job for three years. The statements supposed to be reviewed within 60 Days but congressional investigators found 62 disclosure statements that were filed last May and were still not reviewed four months later. Kemp knows about the problems and has initiated reforms of the system including the creation of a new ethics office in the department and a Complete restructuring of the financial disclosure system. Mini Edito Lulal Congress continues to give itself More Perks that Cement the incumbents in office and close the doors to newcomers. The latest is an upgrading of the House to studio. That s right members of Congress have their own studio where they produce to spots to remind the folks Back Home How wonderful their representative is. Of course your elected officials Don t see the studio As an election asset. They see it As a Way to inform the electorate about the vital goings on in Washington. And if the electorate gets the impression that Washington revolves around a particular indispensable member of Congress that s pure coincidence. Copyright 1990, United feature Syndicate inc.
