· -- By C. Russell Mittan A discussion of the issues facing the 1979 Nebr(!ska Legislature was open to the public at 7:30 p.µi,, Wednesday, Nov. 29, at the ].>eru State College stµdent center. Item~ of particular .concern at the . Legislative Forum ipcluded the possibil· ities of the State Colleges ever becoming a part of the University system; whether the drinking age in Nebraska. should be raised to 2.1 and if State Aid to Education is meeting expectations.
The senators all seemed to agree that the State College are fl!nctioning sa tisfactorily at the present and there would be no reason for a merger.It was agreed that they hope that we never see such a change need to take place. About the drinking age, they agreed that it should be
raised but there is no easy· way to i~tall such a change and doubt whether a bill abol!t it WO\.!ld pass .. State Aid to Education is .experiencihg no µiajor prob- !ems and doubt whether much action . to . totally revamp it. will be taken.

I would have to oppose raising it now, even though I opposed the initial lowering of the drinking age." Senator Carsten, on the other hand, expressed that he favored the idea. And Senator Burrows said, "I would support raising it with the consideration that the privilege would not have to be forfeited by those who are presently 19."

Diane Siefeld then asked the senators to comment on a proposed litter bill. "I'm in fa v0r of a jitter bill," said Sem~tor Carsten, "but a good one that'll work." Senator Burrows then added, "I !)aw a lot of problems with the original bill and I don't t)link it solved all of the litter problems."
A brief question and answer session was held with the audience, and several questions were phoned in by The poor water c@ndition radio listeners.
