The state planned to transfer the inmates into trusty camps and into the new 2,250-bed Michaels I’nit in Anderson County. The work camps are completed, but a key portion of the Michael s Unit will not be finished in time to meet the court-imposed deadline, according to the motion Assistant Attorney General Scott McCown said in his filing that "Texas and TDC have diligently pursued timely completion of the necessary construction to allow full implementation of the stipulated population caps Under these circumstances, a 30-day delay in completing this extraordinary and massive project is justified.” McCown said he did not expect the inmates’ attorneys to contest the state’s motion "It falls under the ancient doctrine of good enough for government work ’ Any state bureaucracy that finishes within 30 days of a deadline that's pretty good.” he told the Dallas Times Herald GOP debate might be held in Houston HOUSTON (AP) The first nationally televised debate of GOF presidential hopefuls will be broadcast live Oct 28 from Houston, pro vided the use of a downtown auditorium can be secured, the show s producer said Firing Line producer Warren Steibel said Thursday the show would definitely be held in Houston if the 3.600 seat George R Brown Coneen Hon Center can be obtained for the broadcast, the Houston Chronicle reported Friday Six ot the seven Republican hopefuls have consented to the Oct 28 date Vice President George Bush has said the date conflicts with his schedule, but that he would In* available in late November Steibel said he wil not change the date to accomodate Bush The debate has been postponed twice before at the request of Bush and Sen Robert Dole of Kansas The Brown Convention Center is booked for the date bv J J Case com pany Director Jordy Tolled ot the Houston Civic Center said he is negotiating with Case to try to fret* the auditorium so the show can go on "I’m asking them to set' if they can lease back a day to us Tolled said "We are trying to work it out ” Tolled said another downtown facility.
