Senate approves $2.5 million for superport off Gulf Coast United Press International AUSTIN — Senators voted 27-1 Tuesday to spend $2.5 million to continue state efforts to build a deepwater port for supertankers on the Texas coast. The Senate also voted unanim ously to ban use of trawls to catch redfish or speckled trout in coastal waters during Dec. 16-Jan. 28 to prevent overfishing of Gulf bays. The emergency superport ap propriation — which now goes to the House — is to be repaid if the project wins federal approval and the Texas Deepwater Port Authority is able to issue revenue bonds to raise $1.2 billion to finance actual construction. “Texas must have the capability of importing large quantities of oil,” said Sen. A. R. Schwartz, D-Galveston. “This (superport) is essential to the well being of the Texas economy.” Schwartz said backers of a plan to build a superport off the Louisiana coast have a federal license already but that facility will not meet the needs of Texas’ petrochemical com plex for imported oil. “We must have a deepwater port in Texas,” he said. “This is the best, the quickest, the most potential project to bring about that realitv.” In 1977 The Legislature appro priated $500,000 to set up the Deepwater Port Authority to take over efforts begun by a consortium of major oil companies in 1972. The Seadock consortium spent $22 mil lion and five years on the project but withdrew when Washington in sisted on license restrictions the oil companies felt were too severe. Schwartz said the port authority has spent most of the $500,000 and needs $2.5 million to cover costs of processing the license application in Washington and the bond issue. Each day’s delay adds $300,000 to the cost of constructing the port 26 miles south of Freeport, Schwartz said. Total costs have risen from Seadock’s estimated $659 million to the port authority’s estimate of $800 million. Schwartz said financing the project with tax free revenue bonds will allow a 20 percent reduction in tariffs on oil imported thrc port. The Galveston senator also] sored the bill to make it i catch redfish or speckled t trawls. Shippers use the t 44-day period each year. Schwartz said the fish conn and are sluggish during coldsj and that commercial using trawls are able to wiped entire fish population inanai ing the latter part of Decemlt early January. “This just keeps the wl population from being wipt during one quick freeze,!

United Press International LONDON — Garbage piled up in London’s streets, hospitals turned away patients and thousands of children were locked out of school today as public service workers stepped up a wave of strikes aimed at winning pay increases of up to 40 percent. “It is time to stop the rot,” de clared Prime Minister James Cal laghan, who was trying to cut the raise demands down to something more in line with his 5 percent anti inflation ceiling. Unions representing hospital workers, ambulance drivers, street cleaners and thousands of other public service workers across Brit ain made it plain they wanted much more. Union officials bargaining for Britain’s 1.5 million blue collar pub lic service workers demanded a minimum wage of $120 a week — an increase of $40 for the lowest-paid. Despite Callaghan’s appeal to unions to “stop the rot” in Britain’s industrial relations, there was no sign of an early breakthroiJ.<< other labor disputes.
