by Zollar, will finish reporting

recommendations by some $100
Another obstacle in the race
for a balanced budget is a $258
million revenue sharing plan-
$32 million higher than the gov-
ernor's program - which could
come up for debate this week.

COPELAND and Zollar both
agreed that the out-of-whack
budget, which is currently just
under $3 billion, is the victim
of election-year pressures.
"Everybody wants to pack
in their goodies so they can go
home and be a hero," said
The governor's original but-
get, just over $2.8 million, left
only a slim $19.5 million cush-
ion. That cushion, however, has
more than been eaten up by
the st-endthrift committees.
"WE'VE AT least agreed on
the revenue level," Zollar said
"Now all we have to do is
agree on the spending."
Both men said the ultimate
budget will be written in a
House-Senate Conference Com-
COPELAND predicted that
the bills will have been voted
on by both houses by July 1, but
that the compromise by the con-
ference committees will not be
hashed out until July 1$.
The Senate has already
passed a stopgap pronosal which
will continue spending past the
deadline at last year's levels
if the budget is not completed.
Coneland, however, said he
will not out the bill before the
House "for at least another
week," or until he is absolute-
lv certain the deadline can not
ZOLLAR said he does not see
how a continuation of last year's
budget can be avoided.
"These people aren't respon-
sible," he said. "They don't
care. They'll just pass a con-
tinuation, forget about it and
go home to campaign."
THE BIGGEST overruns are
in the welfare and education
budgets, shooting past the gov-
ernor's recommendations by
$80 milion alone.
