Congress fakes a number of issues after its two month election recess but the House has put the controversial nuclear reactor waste disposal Bill at the top of its Calendar for the lame Duck session. Debate on the measure began just before the recess. And before adjourning dec. 17, Congress is also expected to wrestle with the gasoline tax proposal which Calls for a 5ent-a-gallon increase to finance a $5.5 billion Highway jobs program. Other items on the legislative Agenda include a ten appropriations Bills needed to run the Federal government for the balance of the fiscal year. Only three have been signed into Law. A legislation to Force automakers to have a fixed percentage of their cars produced in the uned states. A a Senate vote to televise their sessions. A action on the administrations tax and Trade assistance package for Caribbean Basin nations. A votes to deny members of Congress a pay raise of Between $2,426 and $16,648 set to take effect dec. 17. Approval is predicted for the Highway jobs proposal which has the support of preside Reagan. Senate majority Leader Howard Baker r Tenn., and House speaker Thomas p. Of Neill jr., a . However Sharp disagreement is expected on defense and other economic issues Likely to be raised. For example Baker said sunday he doubts that Reagan a plan for deploying the my missile will get much action. And though both democrats and republicans want to assist the Economy they have widely different views on How to do it. The nuclear waste Bill has completed a tortuous two year route through four House committees in making its Way to the floor. The Senate already has approved a Bill on the Issue. Sponsors say that unless the lame Duck session of Congress acts on the measure it will go Back to the starting blocks next year a and the nation May spend another two years without a permanent plan for disposing of its growing stockpile of highly radioactive nuclear waste. Rep. Dan Marriott a Utah in opening debate on the Bill noted that spent fuel rods from commercial nuclear reactors alone account for 8,000 metric tons of waste now in temporary storage at Plant Sites. A we need a National waste repository and it be in place by the turn of the Century a a he said. But 11 National groups mostly environmental and anti nuclear called last week for the House to dump the Bill saying the propos3x is seriously flawed. A the lame Duck session is not the time to write National nuclear waste policy a said Brooks Yeager of the Sierra club. A we see no Way to reconcile a defective House Bill with an environmentally disastrous Senate Bill and come out with a Safe National nuclear waste the Bill before the House would establish a procedure and timetable for picking a permanent underground disposal site which would be undisturbed for the hundreds of years needed to Render the it Safe. Opponents say they want to support legislation for permanent disposal of the wastes but Are against provisions in the Bill for two types of interim storage of wastes until a permanent site is operating. The first is temporary storage for used fuel rods now kept in Cooling Ponds at the reactor Sites. Utility companies say Power plants Are running out of room. The Bill sets up an interim storage plan described As a last resort for reactors that need space. But opponents say utilities Are Likely to make it preferred storage rather than spend the Money to expand existing Cooling Ponds. The second Type of interim storage would provide Long term facilities As a Back up to permanent disposal. These Sites could hold wastes for 50 to 100 years if the permanent site is delayed. Opponents argue however that the Bill requires less environmental scrutiny and fewer licensing safeguards for the interim Sites than a permanent site.

Staff photo by Dale Morton by Willie Sawyers times Tribune staff writer Corbin police Are not ruling out foul play in the death monday of an employee of Southeastern Kentucky Baptist Hospital. Bill Doolin jr., 21, of 1014 Crest Street was found dead at approximately 7 30 . Near an overturned garbage can and several oxygen tanks on an outside loading Dock at the Hospital. According to Corbin police Doolin told friends and fellow workers that he had slipped and fell on Concrete Steps outside the Hospital shortly after Midnight.

Bill Brooks a Hospital employee found Dooling a body when he unlocked the door to the loading Dock. Corbin police Are theorizing that Dooling a alleged fall May have ruptured a blood vessel in his brain which eventually killed him. A rays taken at the Hospital monday were not conclusive. His body has been taken to Louisville for an autopsy. Whitley county Coroner Carl Paul said there was a Small Gash on Dooling a Elbow but no other injury to suggest a fall from the top of the loading Dock As first suspected but officer Harris Stewart who is handling the investigation said he is not ruling out foul play. Doolin had thick Oil or grease on the Back of his head. But Stewart said no Oil or grease was found where Doolin said he fell.
