traditionally Republican, may already
be turning against Milliken because of
his handling of the PBB crisis, so he
can't afford to alienate any more
So for Milliken, at least, his bid for a
third term could well depend on his
attempted emulation of Jerry Brown,
and getting on the right side of Tisch's
tax cut fervor before too many voters
remember he opposed it.
On the other hand, Milliken has been
caught on the wrong side of popular
proposals before, and still emerged
victorious. In 1970, for example, he
favored aid to parochial schools, and in
1974 he opposed the repeal of the food
sales tax. Both times he was elected

Headlee are well organized. They both
have big names and big money lined up
to thwart the two proposals.
On one front, liberal East Lansing
Attorney Zolten Ferency is trying to
destroy the Tisch and Headlee plans
through the courts, by challenging
them as unconstitutional under
Michigan law.
Ferency refiled his case against the
tax plans Friday in Federal Court, after=
the Michigan Supreme Court earlier
rejected his bid to keep the two
proposals off the ballot. This time, he is
being joined in his suit by the powerful
Michigan Education Association
teachers lobby, and by the City of
The plaintiffs claim that the two tax
plans are unconstitutional since they
fail to tell the voters how drastically
they will change the state constitution if
adopted. By law, any ballot proposal
must state exactly which provisions of
the constitution may be altered.
Meanwhile, the MEA has budgeted
up to $500,000 to fight the ballot
proposals this fall, should the courts fail
to rule in their favor.
Also, the United Auto Workers
(UAW) is expected to announce its
opposition to the Tisch amendment.
The union is still debating its stand on
Detroit Mayor Coleman Young has
come out against both Tisch and
Headlee because of the effects they will
have on a city that is only beginning to
recover from its economic woes.
But despite the fact that they are
seeking legal respite, even the most
adamant opponents of Headlee and
Tisch are under illusions about the
popularity these days of any proposal to

cut taxes. In fact, Mayor Young has
already approached the Detroit City
Council to place a bond sale approval
referendum before the voters.
Detroit needs the bond sales as a way
of keeping alive $53.1 million in city
projects, such as downtown renovation.
Currently, the city can issue bonds for
the projects without voter approval, but
if Headlee passes voters must approve
all bond sales.
Some say Young is merely seeking an
early showdown over that provision of
the Headlee tax plan, but it appears
more likely that Detroit officials expect
the Headlee plan to pass, and are
simply trying to get the bond sales
approved before Headlee goes into
YOung and other city officials say
that this one provision will cripple some
needed city services. If a special
election has to be held every time the
city needs a bond sale, that will cost
taxpayers about $500,000 per election.
Headlee, and even more, Tisch
supporters are mostly middle-income
home owners who have the most to gain
from a property tax rollback. The issue
of property tax limitation has forged
the unlikely coalition of businessmen
and union members, blue collar
Democrats and middle-income
In fact, recent polls have shown that
the only groups strongly opposing the
tax plans - besides the politicians -
are professionals, people who consider
themselves "very liberal";, and persons
with incomes over $25,000 a year.
One of the reasons tax limitation
plans have taken Michigan by storm
despite all the warnings is that
proponents look to California to see how

the Proposition 13 measure passed a
it left no immediate scars.
In California, however, the state ha
stockpiled a $5.8 billion budget surplu
over the past four years, so the effect
of the tax cut have been temporari
Also, predictions were not so bleg
for California partly because of tI
skillful politics of Gov. Brown, wh
made a flipflop on the tax issue afte
tapping voter sentiments, an
announced a hiring freeze.
In the aftermath of that first to
revolt, most government agencies we
assured that there would be no serio
budget cutbacks because of the surplu
but Brown was forced to shelve some
his more expendable ideas.
But-that was California..In this stat
there is no budget surplus to speak
and tax cut opponents say the di
