Transcript piaced before Congress, which called for federal funding of $12 million. He did vote for the second bill that provided the Conference with $5 million. "I felt," he says, "that the first bill was an over- funding and that the money could be better used in other areas." Christie says he would have voted to fund the conference and feels, "it was a good beginning in the effort to solve the huge problems women have to face." He points out, "the resolutions IWY asked federal agencies to implement had already been acted on by my agency. So we were ahead of the game." Krueger has been Congressman from District 21 since 1974. Despite the Texas Observer discrediting his New South liberal image and labelling him "a bedrock conservative" in an in depth article on Krueger (Texas Observer March 17, 1978) and despite the Congressional Quarterly ranking him the eighth most conservative freshman in the 94th Congress, Krueger still holds an appeal for some liberal voters. "He is an intellectual," explains Democratic National Executive Commit- teewoman Billie Carr, "and our people love intellectuals-especially those who quote Shakespeare." But many liberals aren't impressed. Carr's own group, the Harris County Democrats endorsed Christie in a one-sided floor fight, after the screening committee recommended no endorsement in the race. Krueger has gained national prominence for his efforts to free the oil and gas industry from government regulation. This has brought accusations from Christie and others that Krueger is a special-interest spokesman for the gas and oil industry. While the congressman's campaign literature calls him "Krueger of Texas," opponents have printed bumper- stickers with his logo slightly altered to read "Krueger of Texaco." A large portion of Krueger's campaign debt from his congressional race was in fact paid off by the industry. Christie brought attention to that image recently when he spent two hours pumping gas and greeting customers at a downtown Houston gas station owned by an independent operator. "1 want to point out the control major oil companies have over our lives, especially over the small businessman, like the owner of this station, who is pressed on all sides by big government and big business. In spite of that stance, Christie has not come up with a substantially different proposal from Krueger's. While Krueger calls for immediate deregulation of natural gas, Christie supports deregulation phased over five years. Although Christie says Bob Krueger votes like a progressive Republican, Krueger calls himself an Independent Democrat who is conservative on fiscal issues. "I am pretty careful about spending other people's money," says Krueger. "I firmly uphold the capitalistic system although we need to involve minorities more." His voting record shows Krueger to be a moderate to conservative on social issues. Progressive organizations like Americans for Democratic Action, the AFL-CIO, and the Consumer Federation rated him 20%, 39%, and 25% respectively. Conservative organizations like the American Conservative Union and the Chamber of Commerce rated him 48% and 76%. Christie's record is available only on a state level. In 1971, his last year in the Texas Senate, the AFL-CIO rated him 80%, the Texas State Teachers Association, 100%, and the Texas League of Conservative Voters declared him right on six out of seven issues. "I would like you to look at my record on women's rights and review it." Joe Christie "I would not make women's issues a top priority of mine." Bob Krueger For Congressional races, see pages 24 - 26.
