Ferency, Headlee, Tisch debate tax reform

(Continued from} Page 3)
tax situation, but then diverges with
FERENCY WENT ON to explain that
he favors a redistribution of the tax
burden with more emphasis placed on
the upper class. Speaking specifically
to the Headlee amendment, the
Michigan State University con-
stitutional law professor said, "Headlee
merely puts a ceiling on a bad tax
system. I say it's not the ceiling that
needs fixing, it's the foundation." After

a round of applause, he added, "If you
want an amendment, let's remove the
restrictions on a (state) graduated in-
come tax."
All three speakers, and the audience,
agreed about the nieed to eliminate
government waste. Key distinctions
among the proposals are that Headlee
favors a limit on government spending,
while Tisch advocates a cut in gover-
nment spending, and Ferency prefers
the redistribution of the support of
government spending.

The tax proposals have been key
issues in both the U.S. Senate and
gubernatorial primaries. Ferency is
the only candidate for governor who
has openly attacked both the Headlee
and Tisch proposal.
Collough and William Fitzgerald, both
gubernatorial hopefuls, are two of at
least 40 state legislators who support
the Headlee amendment.
All the Democratic senatorial con-
tenders prefer the Headlee amendment

candidates have expressed reser-
vations about the Headlee measure as
All-three speakers used the debate to
launch personal attacks and self-
promoting talk. Headlee attempted to
make an issue of Ferency's status as a
Socialist, and both Ferency and Tisch
retaliated by pointing out Headlee's af-
HEADLEE, president of a large in-
surance company, attacked both Tisch
and Ferency for eating from the
"public trough".
Ferency said there are three types of
tax in the state: a flat-rate income tax,
a sales tax, and a property tax.
"Not one is based on the ability to
pay." The Headlee tax, Ferency
charged, "merely puts a ceiling on a
rotten tax system. It's not the ceiling
that needs fixing, it's the foundation."

Housing Peter Schoch, the move was
made to save on the duplication of ser-
vices provided by both the mediation
serviceand theHousing Office,
In the past, the service handled a
wide range of conflicts that required
the use of a mediator, such as consumer
problems. But in recent years the
majority of complaints registered the
service have been housing-related, thus
prompting the shift.
"THIS YEAR we received less in-
dication of a need (of non-housing com-
plaints)," said Leslie. "And we
definitely have less of a budget for it,"
she added.
"We find it very much more logical.
We're getting along extremely well in
this proximity," said Leslie.
Leslie said about 60 per cent of the
service's recommendations, or set-
tlements, are considered binding in
court. Often courts will send cases back
to the service, and declare the service's
mediation as binding.
"It's a neutral organization," ex-
plained Leslie. "We work closely with
Legal Aid, we mediate with the Tenants
Union,".shg.said According to Leslie,
