from gaining permits to store and bum hazardous waste at the Balcones Cement Plant.
The Armbristcr amendment could exempt Lafarge-Systech from the legislation since they filed for permits in the late 1980s.
“There has been an overreaction on the amendment," said Mike Sizemore, spokesman for Armbrister. “There is no guarantee that these companies who are in the permitting process will get their permits.
“We’re just trying to make sure that we play fair."
Sen. Armbrister felt that it would be unfair to change the “ballgame" after some companies had already spent significant time, money and energy on the permitting process, he said.
But, SAFE resident David Wallace called the amendment, "bad Texas politics."
“No back room deals are going to be done anymore around here,” he said as he led the group of citizens through the Capitol delivering signs and letters to the offices of Ll. Gov. Bob Bullock, Sen. Armbrister and Sen. Bill Sims, who represents a portion of Comal County and voted for the amendment.
Members of SAFE accused lobbiest
and lawmakers with conspiring to force the amendment.
“Their charge is flat out wrong,” said Reggie Bashur, Systcch’s assistant to the president for legislative affairs. “It’s unfortunate that members of SAFE have to engage in that type of wild accusation. It’s absolutely, totally, IOO percent untrue.
“We were totally unaware of the amendment," he said. "We’re in favor of strong regulation. We are opposed to arbitrary prohibitions."
Voting for the amendment were, Sen. Bill Sims, D-San Angelo; Sen. J.E. “Buster" Brown, R-Lake Jackson; Eddie Lucio, D-Brownsville; Bill Ratliff, R-Mt. Pleasant; and David Sibley, R-Waco. Voting against the amendment was Carriker and Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo.
Assistants for Sims said he was attending a funeral in San Angelo and immediately unavailable for comment.
The bill is expected to be presented on the Senate floor late today or later in the week.
“The important thing is to try to pass the motion to table the committee amendment," said Sen. Zaffirini. “What we need is 16 votes to table the amendment... The fight will be on the floor."

Powder puff game serves as benefit
By JANINE GREEN Managing Editor
Where do Canyon High School coeds go when classes are over?
Whilg many head for hamburger stands, shopping centers or afterschool jobs, some are hitting the practice field.
“A group of Canyon High girls is in practice for their powder-puff football game,” said Jams Durham, a Project Graduation Committee member.
The game, set for 5:30 pjn. April 15, serves as a fund-raiser for Project Graduation, a five-year-old program providing substance-free graduation parties for each high school in Comal County.
“The game will pit juniors against seniors," Durham said. Admission will be $1 per person, with all proceeds directed to Project Graduation. “In addition, there will be a $25 cash drawing at half-time."
Comal County’s Project Graduation is unique, said Canyon High School liaison Betty Kyle, because “parents and their senior students take the lead in organizing the parties, raising the funds and securing gifts and prizes."
Businesses, civic club:, and service organizations “are contacted first by mail and then personally” for donations, which are divided on a prorated basis among the county’s three high schools: New Braunfels High School in the New Braunfels Independent School District and Canyon High School and Smithson Valley High School in the Comal Independent School District. The initial fund distribution is based on the number of seniors in each graduating class.
“The individual schools also do some fund raising," Kyle said, noting not only the CHS powder-puiff football game but such diverse activities as car washes, talent shows, a style show, competitive volleyball and the sales of goods and services.
“Most comes from donations," she said, “and those can be designated to a particular school.
“One real plus is that every student attending receives a gift of some kind" and contests held during the parties are used to award a wide range of prizes.
"Attendance has really grown," she said, noting that 75 or 80 percent of graduating seniors in 1987 attended their school’s party. “Last year, Canyon had 90 percent attendance. And most of those not attending were ai family gatherings with out-of-town guests they didn’t want to leave for the whole evening.”
The best thing about Project Graduation, Kyle and Durham agreed, is this statistic: since 1987, there have been no drug- or alcohol-related teen-age traffic fatalities in Comal County on graduation night.

Government details Exxon Valdez damage
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The federal government said in its first comprehensive report on the damage from the Exxon Valdez disaster that the crude oil spilled two years
ago continues to harm wildlife.
The report, filed in federal court Monday, dropped the secrecy surrounding estimates of the long-term toll that were withheld because of

The 19-page report is a summary of preliminary findings-
