May Washington up Congress is entering the final and critical stage of drafting a youth employment Bill the one major Job program it is designing from scratch this year. A the others a Public service and Public works jobs and anti recession Aid to local governments a have involved extending expanding or tinkering with existing programs. How Congress designed a youth program tells much about the legislative process it began with a horse race. During the first weeks after the 95th Congress convened in january a half dozen competing youth employment Bills were introduced among these a sen. Henry Jackson and rep Lloyd Meeds democrats from Washington proposed hiring youngsters for outdoor conservation work in National Parks and forests. Carter Congress May clash on use of alaskan Oil by Edward k. De Long Washington up president Carter May be headed for a new Energy dispute with Congress Over whether to Send surplus alaskan of to Japan in Exchange for Middle East Oil congressional sources said saturday. Congressional and administration sources said Carters Energy planners favor exports to Japan As the Best Way to Deal with an of glut expected on the West coast after the Alaska pipeline opens this summer. The surplus crude of from Alaska s North slope would be swapped for persian Gulf crude shipments diverted from Japan to . Ports on the East coast or the Gulf of Mexico. Many members of Congress however oppose exporting alaskan Oil opponents argue that allowing exports would remove pressure to find a Way to move Oil from the West coast to the Midwest and Northeast the trans Alaska pipeline authorization act forbids exports of North slope crude unless the president finds the exports in the National interest. Congress would have 60 Days to override any Export proposal based on such a finding. An administration spokesman said no decision has been made whether to ask for Export authority but sources said the administration postponed announcement of the Export proposal perhaps until july or August because the House recently voted 240-166 for a two year ban on alaskan Oil exports. Although the House moratorium plan died in a House Senate conference committee congressional sources said the idea May be revived. If Carter submits an Export proposal before Congress can again consider the moratorium some sources said he May face the same stiff opposition that greeted his proposed taxes on gasoline and Gas guzzling cars. Texas Gulf coast overdue for Hurricane by k. Mack Sisk United press International the Texas Gulf coast is five years overdue for a major Hurricane and a number of factors during the june october season could Lead to an unprecedented disaster according to the director of the Texas coastal and Marine Council Joe Moseley says residents should be aware of the danger created by the growing coastal population shoddy building practices a general sinking of escape routes and growing complacency created during seven years without a major Hurricane. A a combination of things could set the stage for something much greater than the 1900 storm which killed Foster parents director being held in Ethiopia Nairobi Kenya up the american director of a nonprofit children a organization is being held in Ethiopia for allegedly carrying antigovernment leaflets . Embassy officials in Addis Ababa confirmed saturday. The officials said they were a keeping a close Eye on the situation. Leslie Fox 27, Field director for Foster parents plan International inc., was arrested tuesday in the ullage of Arab 7 a a a Minch during a government which ads children in under but they said the state department also assured them Fox a was was All right and suffering no physical officials in Addis Ababa said Fox was in Good health and being Well treated. Fox a 1971 american University graduate was the Only foreign employee of the Agency working in Ethiopia. The other 65 employees Are ethiopians. His arrest was the first in the 6,000 to 8,000 and caused More than $30 million damage in Galveston a he said. A hurricanes Are very unpredictable. If we had one come in and change its direction and one tiling or another did or did not happen it could Moseley and others concerned with alerting the coast and its residents have been saying for four years the state was overdue for a major Hurricane based on statistics which show Texas is hit every 24 years. The last major storm to strike Texas was Hurricane Celia which roared ashore at Corpus Christi on aug. 3, 1970, killing la and causing $500 million in damage making it the most costly storm in . History. Benton said since Hurricane Carla struck in 1961, there had been a general subsidence of land on Galveston Island sinking escape routes As much As five feet he said nearly any storm would provide tides sufficient to Block interstate 45, Galveston a Only escape route so Galveston ites and other coastal residents would have to evacuate Early a for you re not going to get out period. A a we re All set up for a catastrophe if these people done to take heed a he said. A Carla did no to hit Galveston. It hit too Miles from Galveston and some people say a Well we went through Carla and it was one of the biggest storms of the Century we really did no to go through Carla. I done to think there a any Way that we could convince them. A they say a a in be been Here All my life and in be never been wiped out yet so i wont be leaving. Fortunately these people Are in the minority. Chances Are some will survive but chances Are some of them will not a it could Lead to a fight at least in the one source said. In House testimony last month. Federal Energy administrator John of Leary said the Alaska pipeline should be carrying 600,000 barrels of Oil a Day by Summers end. He said the flow could hit 1.2 million barrels by jan. I 1978, and increase to two million a Day by the mid-1960s. A it is Clear that there is insufficient demand on the West coast of the United states to absorb All of the North slope crude a of Leary said predicting the surplus will total 400,000 to 600,000 barrels a Day by the end of the year and 700,000 barrels a Day in the Early 1980s. No pipeline exists to carry excess Oil from the West coast to the rest of the nation. Of Leary said one possibility for dealing with excess alaskan Oil would be to keep some Wells shut Down until a West to cast pipeline is ready. He said the other option a aside from exports to Japan a would be to ship Oil by Tanker from Alaska to the Panama canal where it would be transferred to smaller tankers and moved through the canal to the Gulf or East coasts. A Sens. Jennings Randolph, and Robert Stafford a it proposed work in Community projects. A Sens. Hubert Humphrey d-minn., and Jacob javits in y introduced a broader Bill including outdoor conservation work Community projects training and Job placement in private Enterprise work experience in school and an expanded Job corps for disadvantaged youths. A sen. Pete Domenicz r-n.mex., and other republicans introduced another Broad proposal allowing localities to design their own programs. The Randolph Stafford proposal was in the Best parliamentary position since they shrewdly attached it to a Public works Job we for which Senate leaders planned Quick floor action. In february javits and Domenici warned the Senate the Bill reaching the floor first would pass a and might gobble up All the $1.5 billion budgeted for a youth program. A this is no Way to legislate to leave that race to the Swift or to those who might find an opportune moment to press their particular approach a javits said. What followed was described later by javits As a a Triumph of All the Senate sponsors agreed to abandon the race. They and their staffs met with administration officials and drafted one youth employment Bill containing something of just about everyone a proposal. President Carter submitted this agreed package to Congress in a message. It often is called a a Carter proposal but in fact it is Only partly his. With a few changes the package was approved by the Senate May 26 by a vote of 80 to 3. It would provide about 200,000 Job and training openings for youngsters mainly 16 through 23, in the next 14 years. It would include outdoor conservation work and Community projects for youngsters of All economic backgrounds and a Range of Job and training programs specially targeted at Low income youth. Since Many openings would be for less than a year the total number of youths participating might be about 500,000. But the authors neglected one thing a House members were not invited to the drafting sessions and they began putting together their own proposal. The administration objected saying it had reached an agreement with Congress a ooh no a replied House staffers Quot you reached an agreement with the the House we passed May 17, contains the same outdoor conservation project. It also provides for a demonstration projects Quot in which Federal Money would finance various approaches to the youth unemployment problem around the country. The next step is to negotiate differences Between the two Bills in a House Senate con Ference planned for either the week of june 5 or june 12. While the two versions appear far apart aides say every kind of youth program proposed could operate under either one so philosophically they Are not far apart a number of staffers Are optimistic that when a youth Bill finally is enacted in the next few weeks it will turn out that the legislative proms in its cumbersome Way a and to the Surprise of Many a has worked pretty Well.
