Washington Report By Keitli Thomson When the Interior Department appropriations bill was reported to the House for action, I discovered an item buried in the Committee report calling for a $1 million re- duction in funds for National Park Service construction programs. On the very day that the House passed the bill -- but too late to remedy the situation -- the Park Service still could not tell me exactly what this would mean to the some $433,- 500 requested for work in Yellow- stone Park. The Committee took the posi- tion that unobligated balances "should be enough to offset this reduction." There is a fallacy in i this reasoning in that, the funds balances, while unobligated, are ommitted to activities already pro- grammed. This means that new mctivities will suffer, according to .]Park Service sources. Exactly to what extent the Yel- lowstone projects will be affected :still is not determined.. In some cases, projects will be scaled down; :in others, entirely eliminated. What "the picture will be with regard to "Yellowstone is unknown as I write this. Since House action followed im- mediately the reporting of the bill by the Committee, there was not sufficient time to delve into this particular item. I intend to fol- low it closely, and if possible help to effect remedial action in the Senate. Aside from this one item, Wyo- t rning has not fared too badly in I appropriations matters so far this I year. As I reported earlier, 1 I appeared before the Committee on] these matters, and was successful in my effort to retain funds for Forest Service range improvement at their present level, despite a proposal to reduce them more than one-third. Activities of the oil- shale pilot plant at Laramie will not be curtailed, under the Bureau of Mines program. Department of Agriculture ap- propriations, as passed by the ]House, include substantially in- creased funds for Soil Conserva- tion Service activities, in addition to which a supplemental appropria- tions bill makes available some $7 million for erosion control work. The SCS funds approved by the lHouse figure more than $5 million ;above the fiscal 1956 estimate and maore than $6 million higher than the fiscal 1955 appropriation. Loan authorizations of the Rural ]Electrification Administration in tiscal 1956 top the current year's tignres by $25 million and the 1956 estimates by $5 million, while the .xtension Service appropriation is $5.3 million above the fiscal 1955 total. All these things add up to ex- panded federal activity in fields affecting Wyoming. The Bureau of Reclamation, another major agency operating in our state, yet is to be considered by the House. This is one agency with which I keep in constant and close con tact, and whose appropriations will be of keen interest in Wyoming. I will advise you from time to time of the progress of this bill. KT Wyomingites in Washington were pleased to have Miss Ann Loomis represent our state in the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Miss Loomis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. t John Loomis of Cheyenne, partici- pated as our Wyoming Cherry Blos- som Princess in all of the activities of this colorful event which each year heralds the Spring season in the nation's capital city. KT Visitors to my office from Wyo- ming include Governor Milward Simpson, Kuy Sturgeon and R. T. Helvey of Sheridan.
