WASHINGTON— Conff-essman
Roy A. Taylor battled budget
emters through two days of de
bate last week to help assure
funds for continuance of the Ap
palachian program.
Before the bill passed the
House by a narrow vote, oppon
ents succeeded in cutting fay one
third the non-highway portions
of the authorization.
The road-building program, op
erating under separate earlier
authority, emerged undamaged.
Highway projects consume 80
percent of the Appalachian
funds while the balance finances *
vocational training facilities,
sewage treatment plants, and
other community projects and
Rep. Taylor fought to protect
funds for all phases of the pro
gram. "This is the best-adminis
tered program I have seen nim-e
owning to Washington”, declar
ed Taylor during floor debate.
"It is one of the nation's best ex
amples of success through team
work by federal, state and local
units of government."
The Senate has already ap
prr<ved a more venerous version
of «*e authorization.
Taylor said be was hopeful
that the conference reoort would
restore at least part of dm
Rouse cuts.
