PATAKI Continued from Page A-1 ed skepticism about the program. \If what the governor is saying is that he's setting up a trust fund from the lottery to assure that there will be sufficient education aid from the state to fund an adequate level of educa- tion-while cutting property taxes, then that will be a good thing,\ Grumet said. \But if what he is saying is i)^e's going to take- $100 million out of education aid to lower property taxes, that would be a ENERGY Continued from Page A-1 local program directors fear they $e forced to stop taking ap- Even the best scenario, with a budget deal announced over the next week, would still leave the House and Senate to agree qn an. amount for the overall program this year. \We're promising fuel vendors we'll pay them\ later for services now, says Judy Carpenter of the Clinton County Social Services office. \They're counting on our promises,\ she says.,. . ..;,^, Carpenter's office provides heating assistance td welfare recipients. - The state is counting on less money for the program' this year than last.

The governor said he would in- clude $3 million in the budget proposal for restoration of the scholarship program. Pataki, who has called for the abolition of the state Board of Regents, is now calling them \Scholarships for Academic Merit.\ The program would offer the top 1,000 students in the state a four-year scholarship worth ceived money from the pirogram. About 80 percent of the rhoney the state spends from the pro- gram is to one-time recipients, says Terrance McGrath, a spokesman for the state Depart-, ment of Social Services: The stale, has a small reserve from lapt year and has yet to tap its share from this year's pro-' gram, he said. The president also can release emergency home heating money to states should money from the program run out. \ Winter has comfe early to the North Country, with some areas • seeing«as. much as 50 inches of snow in recent days. Because of that, Rep. John McHugh, R-Pier- repont Manor, has signed several letters 'to key lawiflakefS-an^h^;.,, $1,000 per year if they attend a New York college or university. The state would also offer.$500 per year for four years to 4,000 other top students. Hayden praised the-proposed restoration of the scholarships.

Fifty-three senatorsj including New York Sens, Daniel Moynihan and Al D'Amato, also signed a letter last week calling for states to be allowed to spend most of their annual payments from the program over the next i few months. McHugh say the likelihood of- that proposal being approved over the next few weeks \is modest.\ ' There' has been no official response to the letters of support circulating on Capitol Hill. But House Majority Whip Tom Delay, HPTexas,™w\ho has voted to kill the program, did. coiipede pro- gram opponents may. haveto give ^^MS^ Continued frohr Page A-1 that passed the. House. It declared • that \the Congress op- poses President Clinton's deci- sion to deploy United States mili- tary ground forces into th.e republic of Bosnja.\ A second. sentence in the resolution said LJKJ ••• Congress \strongly supports the United States military person- nel,\ That, resolution, backed by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R- Tex., and Sen. James Inhofe, R- Qkla., was regarded as so close that Vice President Al Gore. presided in case his vote was needed to break a tie. Dole insisted that the ad- ministration agree to a plan for arming and training the Bosnian military to allow it to defend the nation after the-NATO mission ends in one year. Continued from Page A-1 true operation we've had and add ag- gressive marketing,\ said Tim Monostori, who will manage the plant. Duopac owned and .operated the same site from 1978 to 1986, but sold the facility for profit, Dube\ said. The company runs similar facilities in Quebec arid has grown 20 percent a year in the recent past, Dube said, adding that he hoped to bring the same prosperity to Plat- tsburgh. • Initially, Duopac will invest $7 million in new machinery to prepare the plant for the competitive industry. After a Wednesday morning news con- ference at City Hall, Mayor Clyde Raifideau and company officials briefly discussed possible options for the site's ex- pansion. City ajnd Twinpak employees worked to find a buyer for the plant, persuading Duopac to move to Plattsburgh — rather than a Virginia site — with this [city's low energy rates-and proximity to Montreal. Plastics manufacturing is energy inten- sive, and the rates in the city will give Duopac an advantage over competition, Monostori said. \We convinced them Plattsburgh was the place to Ideate to expand into the States,\ Rabideau said.
