Reagan to Brief Norick, Other Mayors on Economic Bill of Rights


Ray, Tim, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Oklahoma City Mayor Ron Norick will fly to Washington, D.C., next week for a briefing on President Ronald Reagan's economic bill of rights and aspects of the proposal relating to state and local governments.

Norick received a telegram invitation Tuesday to the presidential briefing. He said he would attend and had his travel expenses approved by the Oklahoma City Council.

Norick's trip next Tuesday and Wednesday will force him to miss his second nighttime meeting of the council in as many months. A sampling of council members this week indicated the council may barely have a quorum for its second night meeting.

The mayor said he did not know very much about the president's economic bill of rights, but he said he was concerned about the federal government cutting out many programs benefiting cities in an effort to reduce the federal deficit.

The president's plan, unveiled July 3 during a speech at the Jefferson Memorial, would make it more difficult for Congress to raise taxes and spend tax dollars. The president proposed requiring an overwhelming majority, such as two-thirds or three-fifths of each house, instead of a simple majority vote for increasing taxes.

The White House media relations office said Wednesday that Tulsa Mayor Dick Crawford and Lawton Mayor Wayne Gilley also had been invited to attend.

A list of those who had confirmed they would attend was not available, but a spokesman with the media relations office said probably about 200 mayors, state legislative assistants and other state and local elected officials would attend.

The visit will be Norick's second to Washington since becoming mayor in April. Last month, he met with Oklahoma's congressional delegation and Oklahoma City representative John H. Montgomery.

Norick said he did not have an agenda in mind to present to presidential representatives and would probably be all ears.

"I think I'll listen and go as an observer and see what this bill of rights is," he said. "If they ask for suggestions, I understand the need to reduce the federal deficit, but I would just ask that they keep the cities in mind and don't hit us all at once (with reductions in programs)."

Norick said he would detail his trip to Washington during his weekly Thursday press conference after his return. . .

Norick to Make City Employees Softball Game While the mayor will be in Washington part of next week, he will not miss the inaugural city employees softball game Monday night at All Sports Stadium, pitting the mayor's all-stars against the city manager's all-stars.

Mike McAuliffe, assistant to the mayor, jokingly said the president called to make sure the Washington briefing would not interfere with the softball game.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and will be followed by the Oklahoma City 89ers game against the Buffalo Bisons at 7:30 p.m.

The game will pit mostly non-management employees against each other, with Norick and City Manager Terry Childers serving as team captains. Ward 2 Councilman Mark Schwartz also will play, and Ward 4 Councilman Pete White will serve as announcer.

The rumor at City Hall is that Childers, who is on vacation this week, has taken time off solely to prepare for this game. …
