0 The Message m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana ICCstatement: Indiana must place a higher Priority on needs of poor The Indiana Catholic Conference (ICC) recently published a summary of the statement "In- diana Public Policy and the Critical Needs of Low-Income Persons." The summary emphasizes the ICC's belief that Indiana public policy must place a higher priority on the critical needs of the poor. It also addresses what the ICC believes are deficien- cies in Indiana's welfare, Medicaid and township trustee assistance programs. The ICC Board of Directors approved the publication of the summary brochure with the hope that it will be useful and readily available to Catholic and other public and private orga- nizations who are seeking to develop support for low-income persons, for those involved with educational activities in Catholic schools and other learning environments, to persons of all faiths, and to the general public of the state. Both the summary brochure and the full text of the December 1994 statement are available from local diocesan offices. ICC board members include the active bishops of the state and a lay person from each dio- cese. Representatives from the Diocese of Evansville are Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger and Diane L. Bender. Asbestos education workshop planned Barbara Kramer of Environmental Management, Inc., will be presenting a general educa- tion workshop on asbestos from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 18 at the Catholic Center. Judy Neff, diocesan chancellor, said all principals and pastors of parishes with schools are en- couraged to attend. Designated Asbestos Program Managers are also encouraged to attend. "It's been known for quite awhile that certain types of asbestos found in various types of plasters, floor and ceiling tiles, general insulation, and thermal system insulation (TSI) will, with sufficient exposure, cause cancer. That is why the federal and state governments have enacted stringent legislation to control asbestos in schools." An asbestos management plan was developed for each school in the late 1980s. Two trien- nial inspections were completed; the last inspections were held this past July.
