GAO Redwood Park report supports Clausen position GAO found that two major factors contributed to the larger program, the "presumptive conclusion" provision and the failure on the part of the Department of Labor to exclude workers laid off due to routine main- tenance. ' In its recom- mendations to the Congress, the GAO is calling for the deletion of the conclusive presumption clause and removal from the program of workers whose eligibility has been established for reasons not directly related to the park expansion. In commenting on these recommendations, Causen said. "Workers declared eligible by the Labor Department should not he retroactively removed from the program since they relied in good faith on the Labor Department's interpretation of the law." "The fact that the legislation was designed t create the.presumption that a layoff was created by the park expansion was the only way the program could have a beneficial effect. The specific intent was to give the benefit of the doubt to the worker being diversely impacted by a government decision nude ast h original estimates were kept will.

Under the cir- cumstances, it was the most reasonable position for the Congress to take." Congressman Don Clausen's 1978 contention that expansion of the Redwood National Park would cause serous unemployment among Northern California forest product workers was sub- stantiated in a study just released hy the General Accounting Office (GAOL The report was requested by Clausen after numerous problems and inequities were brought to his attention in- volving the administration and implementation of the program. "One of the most striking aspects of the report," Clausen said, "is the finding by the GAO that far more jobs have been lost as a result of expansion of the park than was originally estimated by the National Park Service or proponents of the ex- pansion." The Park Service estimated that 560 jobs would be lost through October of 1979. In contrast, Clausen predicted that 1600 to 2000 jobs would be lost. The GAO report substantiates the higher figure and reports that, in fact, 1735 employees have been determined eligible. "The people affected by the park expansion knew the impact was being un- derstated that we are nt 'surprised by the GAO's findings. Many believe the "Each company," Claum continuued, "impacted by the park expansion hmulealt with it in differin ways.
