conflict of interest divestment and not a blind trust is the way to solve the problem says a Railroad Com mission candidate who wants stricter ethics and campaign finance laws "It s difficult for me to understand how a blind trust can be truly blind if you know what went into if in the first place.” Kd Kmmett told a Thursday news conference ‘ Really the blind trust is nothing more than a mask Kmmett a Republican running for the seat now held by Democratic Commissioner Jim Nugent said commissioners should be prohibited from accepting funds from parties in cases pending before them as well a.* from holding sttx'k in companies regulated by the commission It ***ems the public is largely unaware that we have a major flaw in our ethics and campaign finance laws Kmmett said He said it doesn’t make sense to forbid parties to discuss a pending case with a commissioner while allowing them to make contributions to the commissioner s cam paign I still support them not being allowed to go in and talk to a com missioner specifically about an issue that s pending he said That same person though that s prohibited from discussing the issue is allowed to host a fun draiser and contribute money to a commissioner and that to me is just wrong he said Commissioners also are pro hibited from owning railroad stock under what Kmmett called an antiquated law The law doesn't say anything about owning stock in oil and gas companies or trucking com panies and the railroad commission regulates oil and gas and trucking It doesn’t even regulate railroads an\ more in an economic w ay he said Nugent said he sold his oil am gas holdings when he joined the commission on which he has served since January 1979 The it cumbent also said he does no‘ solicit contributions from people he knows have pending cases We do not know w hether or no* someone who makes us a con tnbution has a pending case Nuger.t said I would not want to limit contributions anyone can make to a candidate The commmission should change its policy and the 1989 Legislature should toughen the laws for the commissioners and other • quasi-judicial state of finals he said Kmmett is executive director of the Texas Association

Writer t ounty Attorney Hill Reimer said passage Tuesday of Amendment 14 providing the state with a limited right to appeal certain court rulings showed Texans were tired of hav ing their rights as victims ignored Reimer and a staff of volunteers worked many hours assembling news setters that went to some 22 OOO households throughout the county in support of the measure The referendum was a big
