School offi- cials fear the effect on non- public schools statewide if one community is granted a waiver. The Catholic bishops of Minnesota's six dioceses urged their state's legislators to look at "the moral quality of legislation and its impact on the lives of people" as they consider such issues as the death penalty, abortion, childhood nutrition and fam- ily income. The cornerstone of the Wis- consin Catholic Conference's work during the biennial leg- islative session that opened in January will be the om- nibus Respect Life Act. It combines such abortion-re- " lated provisions as lnformed consent and parental consent with an expansion of adop- tion assistance, parental leave, nutrition programs for new mothers and their chil- dren and health care for preg- nant women. The Kentucky Catholic Conference put its top prior- ity this year on health care re- form, issuing a 61-page docu- ment designed to strength a plan proposed by Gay. Brere- ton Jones. In Oklahoma, Sister Pat Keefe, director for justice and human development in the Oklahoma City Archdiocese, said her top priority during this legislative session was to prevent cuts in the budget of Aid to Families with Depen- dent Children. Budget concerns also domi- nated the legislative session in Texas, where the bishops were urging Catholics to con- tact their legislators to oppose cuts in human services. Health care reform, welfare reform, school choice and abortion were among the top, ics getting Catholic attention in Florida. The abortion issue itself and the federal Freedom of Choice Act came before the North Dakota Legislature, which voted March 17 to urge Congress and particularly North Dakota's congressional delegation to reject the fed- eral legislation which would forbid most state restrictions on abortion. The Missouri Catholic Con- ference condemned a welfare reform proposal in that state which would penalize wel- fare recipients for having ad- ditional children, Dublin housewife rallied in FREE MARKET APPRAISALS
