Anthony Meeker Welfare reform hasn't occupied much of the public spotlight this session but it is surely state gov- ernment's major achievement and success of the past two years. An aggressive top-to-bottom shakeup of welfare programs waged by the Atiyeh administra- tion has replaced welfare with work for thousands of Oregonians at a savings of more than $150 million in your federal and state tax dol- lars. The Governor and the Ways and Means Committee have drawn a blueprint for the rest of the nation to follow, because what has hap- pened with little fanfare here in Oregon is what the Reagan admin- istration hopes to achieve in all states. Oregon turned the corner two years ago with adoption of a policy that permits the state to require able-bodied welfare recipients to accept available employment. This policy resulted in 5,000 re- cipients being immediately dropped from the welfare rolls, with anomer 15,000 receiving a sharp reduction in their payments. This policy has, over time, further reduced welfare caseloads by 11,- 000 cases, saving $30 million of State General Funds. It is estimated that nearly 75 percent of those who were affected by these changes are now em- ployed and no longer dependent on help from their fellow citizens. Overall, the objective is not solely to save money -- although millions have been saved. The ob- jective is to encourage individuals to work, thereby gaining indepen- dence and self-respect resulting from supporting themselves and their families. By Rep. Bill Rutherford A move to include gay rights in the racial and religious harassment bill (HB 2479) was quelled in the House Judicieary Committee this week. The committee voted with me to exclude gay rights from HB 2479, which would prohibit certain kinds of harassment and intimi- dation, against a person on account PUBLIC NOTICE Chemeketa Community College Budget Committee Vacancy The Chemeketa Community College Board of Education is seeking applicants for the citizens' budget committee for the college, There is a vacancy in the position representing Zone Two of the college district.

Anyone wishing further information is encouraged to contact the president's office at Chemeketa Community College, 399-5121. Cornelius C. Bateson Chairperson, Board of Education of a person's race, color, religion, ancestry or national origin. If an individual intentionally and with intent to intimidate another person because of any of those factors does certain offensive acts, the crime of intimidation is committed. The ac- tions include physical harm, dam- aging or destroying the other per- son's property, or placing the other person in fear or imminent physical harm by word or conduct, The theory behind HB 2479 is that harassment, intimidation, vio- lence and destruction of property take on particularly dangerous and socially disruptive character when they are motivated by racial or religious bigotry. The issue of sex- uality here would dilute the content of this particular bill. Gov. Vic Atiyeh proposed this legislation after becoming con- cerned about a growing number of incidents of harassment or violence in the state which appeared to be racially or religiously motivated. One of the Governor's stated priorities for the 1981 session was addressing the state's energy needs through weatherization pro- grams. Progress has been made in efforts to partially shift the fi- nancial burden for weatherization incentives from the General Fund to other sources. In the beginning of this session I introduced HB 2918, which would authorize a public utility to offer a cash grant to residential customers to reimburse them for weatherization expendi- tures. That measure, which the Governor also supported, was or- iginally the House Environment and Energy Committee's founda- tion for the weatherization package now before the House. However, after many hearings and amend- ments, outlooks -- budgetary and other -- changed and HB 2246 became the vehicle for the addi- tions. HB 2246 as amended will require all investor-owned utilities and publicly-owned utilities (both gas and electric) to provide an energy conservation program for dwelling owners who receive space heat, backup space heat or hot water heat from the utility. A companion bill, HB 2247, would sunset the state weatherization tax credit for all taxpayers except those who heat with oil, effective Jan. 1, 1982. Any programs offered under HB 2246, also known as the "Oregon Residential Energy Conservation Act," must include at least in- formation on energy conservation and weatherization; energy audits; inspection of installed energy con- servation services; and provide a financing option of either 6.5 per- cent loan or a cash grant of 25 percent of the cost of energy con- servation services up to $350. However, aldl utilities are allowed to offer programs which meet or exceed Act requirements: Some are already offering loans with no interest charges, have or plan other incentives for homeowner energy conservation incentives. The Bon- neville Power Administration also has proposed "buy-back" pro- grams. There are, of course, variations in the above provisions, and now that HBD 2247 has been referred to the House Revenue Committee, more changes could be made. Energy matters are nothing new to the Legislative Assembly. The Northwest Regional Power Council, lifeline rates, alternative energy sources and facilities are but a few of the related topics discussed so far. HB 2246 should be before House members sometime in the next week, adding to the overall picture of one of the session's most important issues. With an estimat- ed potential impact on the General Fund of $15 million should the state weatherization tax credit continue, it joins other fiscal issues with which legislators must deal. 1981 PLANT REGISTRATION DATES AGRIPAC PLANT #1, Salem PREFERENCE AGRIPAC PLANT #2, Salem (formerly Dalgety Foods) AGRIPAC PLANT #3, Junction City AGRIPAC PLANT #4 Eugene CASTLE & COOKE FOODS 8 A.M.

GRADUATIONS TAKE OVER All over the country, beginning now, High School Graduations be- come the priority in order of im- portance to hosts of young people, parents, friends and teachers. On the serious side, what these grad- uates do with their diplomas will be interesting. An old verse becomes so applic- able at this time. It is this: "You have each been given a bag of tools... A shapeless~ rock and a book of rules... And each must fashion, ere life has flown... A stumbling block or a stepping stone." The question we have is which will it be? A cold chill pervades the air when we recall the many tragic events tied to the post-graduation night. In my own experience as a school administrator I remember SEVEN chairs, empty except 'for cap and gown draped over them. The perpetual grief to their parents and friends is sad to behold. Is just one wild night of celebration worth all this? On the brighter side we love to watch these seniors as they march to the platform, tassels dafigling from proud heads, eyes eager with anticipation, shoulders thrown back. Each feature on their faces, all their gestures, would incline one to believe each is harboring a determined will to succeed. It is almost as though they say, "We Can[ We Will[ We MUST!" M. V.
