New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 3, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1993 HERALD-ZEITUNG 7-AWatchdog group cites Texas projects as pork-barrel spending Associated Press WASHINGTON — Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, pork-barrel spending depends on your vantage point. Two Texas projects are among the 1,500 nationwide branded as wasteful spending by a Washington-based watchdog group in its *1993 Congressional Pig Book Summary.” But officials at the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park and Texas Tech University reject the contention of Citizens Against Government Waste, saying their projects are anything but pork. The advocacy group, in its report released Tuesday, defined pork-barrel projects as those either funded with federal money even though they serve only local interests, not requested by the president or not the subject of congressional hearings. “Once these projects are funded, they grow like a cancer, consuming more and more tax dollars every year,” the organiza tion said. The Tig Book” was released the day that former independent presidential candidate Ross Perot told a congressional reform panel that he would identify “pork of the month” projects so Americans could see how their tax money is being wasted. This is a sacred cow... all that funny stuff that happens in the middle of the night in the appropriations committee,” the Texas billionaire said. Citizens Against Government Waste derided the $3.5 million appropriation this year for an $8.3 million visitors center at the LBJ National Historic Park — because the nearby LBJ State Park already has such a facility. “I don’t feel that there is any pork,” said park acting supering tendent Reba Hyatt "Possibly some savings, but I think the visitors center is very important to the public and to the park.” And, Ms. Hyatt noted, the state park is 14 miles west of the national park. Senate approves utility commission nominations Associated Press AUSTIN — The Texas Senate has confirmed Gov. Ann Richards’ appointments to the Public Utility Commission and Water Development Board Tuesday. But senators agreed Tuesday to return numerous branch pilot appointments to the Senate Nominations Committee after Sen. Rodney Ellis expressed concern about whether there is enough diversity among the pilots. The pilots are responsible for bringing vessels into port. Tm told that there are 1,200 ship pilots in this country, nationwide. A total of five are people of color,” said Ellis, D- Houston. He said he wanted to give people from his area who have applied to be pilots a chance to testify about problems they have run into. * Tm hoping that in a one-week or two-week period, we can get some questions answered, and maybe get some sense of what is being done to diversify” the group, he said. The Senate voted 31-0 to confirm the nominations of Robert Gee and Karl Rabago, both of Houston, to the Public Utility Commission. It also confirmed the Water Development Board appointments of Othon Medina Jr. of El Paso, and Elaine Umstead and Charles Jenness, both of Houston. Jenness, who was reappointed, is board chairman. The Senate also confirmed branch pilot and pilot commission appointments for the Sabine Bar, Pass and Tributaries. Ellis didn’t ask to hold back those nominees, noting that two of the commissioners are women. Senators returned to the Nominations Committee the branch pilot appointments for the ports of the Brazos River Harbor Navigation District; Galveston Bar and the Houston Ship Channel; ports of Galveston County; Matagorda Ship Channel; and the Port Aransas Bar, Corpus Christi Bay and Tributaries. r NOW OPEN CHECKS CASHED Fe© 1% Free Money Orders with check cashing or 25 cents each CASH IN A FLASH 373-E Lands St. - Landa Plaza Shp.Ctr. 608-0527 Mon.-Th ur». 10-6 Fri. 9-7 Sat. 9-3 COMETO GUANO GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE EVERYTHING UNDER $10.00 LADIES * MENS * KIDS GUANO FACTORY STORE #24 Mill Store Plaza Box 14 651 Hwy 81 E.
