Downey reported that $26-million of funding will be given to SLOC to accomodate the anticipated heavy traffic during the Olympics in Salt Lake City. It is expected that 1,200 buses and 50 light rail cars will be needed in order to supplement Utah infrastru ture. The funds will also aid in the completion of the Olympic Busway at Snowbasin. "This is the first appropriation from a bill signed by President Clinton," Downey said. Additionally, the federal government has delegated an estimated $93.5-million to SLOC . "It's money we counted on," said Michael Huerta, SLOC director of transportation. "So we've been biting our nails for the past two-months," he said. The Nov. 17 announcement follows an approval passed by Congress that $72-miIlion will go to SLOC for further transportation projects. According to Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Deputy Director John Njord, SLOC has also received $12.9-million in discretionary funds from the Federal Highway Administration.

For now anyway, but Al Gore is not giving UP- The decision that gave Florida to Bush was made Sunday after the Florida deadline for hand-counted ballots were tallied. But early Monday morning, Gore's lawyers filed papers ' contesting the vote count in three counties.Gore said he was sure he had enough votes to win if every vote had been counted. In a televised conference call with senate minority leader Tom Daschle and house minority leader Dick Gephardt the vice president said "This really is about much more than which candidate wins and which candidate loses. It is about the integrity of our system of government." Gore has planned a televised address Monday evening. He intends to report that he is not giving up. According to USATODAY, the subject will be to tell the public that the Florida tally certified in Bush's favor Sunday night was, in the words of Democratic running mate Joseph Lieberman, "incomplete and inaccurate." "How can we teach our children that every vote counts if we are not willing to make a good-faith effort to count every vote," Lieberman said Sunday . , : , . r 1 1 ... ; i : :..' . . .
