State budget, taxes still unresolved

While University officials impatiently
await the final figures on appropriations
from the state, the State Legislature has
not even managed to provide the state
with a working budget for the 1971-72
fiscal year which began yesterday.
In addition, the state's lawmakers are
still groping for adequate tax revenues
to cover anticipated expenditures for the
new year.
Tuesday, the Senate whipped thiough
an emergency spending bill calling for
continued expenditures not exceeding the
level of those made in June. The bill spe-
cifically excluded scheduled pay raises
averaging 8.1 per cent for 47,000 state
civil service workers.

But the House is not expected to pass
the emergency bill until next week when
it returns after a recess for the Fourth
of July weekend.
Technically: this means that although
the state treasury has money, no one is
authorized to spend it.
State Treasurer Allison Green said
yesterday, "There's a state payroll due
July 1 and it is in the mails now for
work done prior to the new liscal year--
so that is no problem.
"The next school aid payment is not
due until Aug. 1, so no probleni. But the
next state payroll due July 15 will cover
work done in the new fiscal year, so by
about July 8 somebody has to tell me

"For instance, it takes about a week
to prepare a payroll and I need to know
if I include in it the new 8.1 per cent
pay raise I am supposed to without a
legislative appropriation covering it,"
Green said.
Adding to the problems time officially
ran out Wednesday on a 1970 bill which
reduced credits allowed to taxpayers
against their state income taxes. Unless
action is taken, the state would be de-
prived of about $92 million dollars in
annual revenues.
Meanwhile, the state's lawmakers con-
tinue to search for new tax revenue that
will provide the state with funds to cover
