In a letter from John

Producers Association ("CAPA"), the Department advised that it
does not intend to challenge the proposal by CAPA to initiate
an asphalt industry advancement program ("AIAP") to engage in
the research and development of a better asphalt product and to
promote the advantages of asphalt cement over concrete. CAPA is
a non-profit industry association comprised of 65 members which
are engaged in the production of asphalt cement and in the construction
of roads and highways, using asphalt cement, in the state of Colorado.
Beginning sometime in 1993 and extending over a five-year period,
CAPA plans to initiate a new assessment methodology to collect
a higher assessment from its members to fund the AIAP. Participation
in the program is open to non-members of CAPA and is voluntary
for CAPA members.
