1,000 derailments occurred in 1974 and 1975. The proposal
prescribes the maintenance or upgrading by railroad corpora-

transported. Published with the rule is a chart of estimates on
coal shipments in Texas by the years 1980 and 1990.
Fees for individuals and groups using the facilities of state
parks are outlined in new rules proposed by the Texas Parks
and Wildlife Department. The proposals are designed to
replace existing rules now being repealed.
New guidelines on food stamps are among several proposed
and adopted rules of the State Department of Public Welfare
