seriously distressed urban areas to attract jobs and increase the property tax base in these

to amend the Industrial Facilities Act to assure that its use serves only those cities with

program, while adhering to the objective of not reducing direct services to the public, the
City Administrator will need the flexibility to manage the 1991-92 financial plan on a daily
