Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon administration gives go-ahead on Alaska Pipeline NEW YORK (AP) Nixon administration lias flivcn >he go-ahead for construction of the controversial trans-Alaska oil pipeline. But environmental groups vowed to contlinuc their fight against the project. In another development, Pres- ident Nixon raised the quotas on oil imports from Canada, the Middle Kasl, Latin America by 15 per cent. Meanwhile, the House of Rep- resentatives approved a two- step increase in the minimum wage to 52 an hour, rejecting a proposal to make the jump im- mediately and to extend cover- age to 5.8 million additional workers. The bill was sent to the Sen- ate, where legislation raising the minimum wage to an hour and expanding coverage awaited final action in Ihc labor committee. LINT, WAS STAU-EI) Interior Secretary II o g e r s Morton announced Thursday that lie planned to authtorize construction of the Alaskan pipeline project, which had been stalled for the last two years by a court decision won by environment groups. A lawyer for these groups said Morton's action would be challenged in the courts. Alyeska Pipeline Co., formed by a consortium of seven oil firms, applied for the permit to construct the pipeline, inches in diameter, across federal land tn carry hot oil from the Prucl- hoe J3ay field on Alaska's North Elope to a tanker port on its southern Coast. From there the oil would be transported by tanker to the U.S. West Coast and perhaps other destinations. In choosing the Alaska route, Morton rejected an alternative through the Mackenzie Valley of Canada which had been pro- posed by the Canadian govern- ment. Under the increased quoins announced by Nixon, imports oi Canadian oil to markets east of the Rocky Mountains could in- crease In from barrels a day. The House vole on the mini- mum wage was a victory for the administration. The Demo- cratic leadership had made an immediate minimum and ex- tension of coverage tn govern- ment employees and household domestics a key part of its leg- islative program.
