On a dozen issues, Michael S. Dukakis wants to do in Washington what he did in Boston as governor of Massachusetts. More than other governors who have run for president, Dukakis has drawn on his state experiences to develop a national agenda. Neither Ronald Reagan nor Jimmy Carter, both former governors, borrowed nearly as much for their presidential campaigns from their days in Sacramento, Calif., or Atlanta. But Dukakis, a Democrat likely to become the first sitting governor since 1952 to win a presidential nomination, has proposed to go national with 12 Massachusetts programs, including health and welfare, taxes, and crime.

The Supreme Court, in an appeal by General Motors Corp., ruled 9-0 that the federal government cannot be barred from enforcing an existing state clean air plan because the deadline for reviewing changes in the plan has passed. The case involves the Massachusetts plan approved in 1980 by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act. The U.S. sued GM in 1987 for failing to comply with the clean air plan in Massachusetts. The justices today upheld the EPA's power to seek fines of up to $25,000 a day. The case involves pollution from car paint at a now-closed GM assembly plant in Framingham, Mass.
