state aid than
By NANCY BILYEAU
Michigan State University received a
larger percentage increase in recom-
mhended state appropriations for next
year than the University of Michigan,
according to Gov. William Milliken's
budget recommendation yesterday.
. Last week, the MSU Board of
"rustees almost declared the univer-
sity in a state of severe financial crisis.
A 2%-day mandatory faculty layoff
Wvithout pay, and tuition increases for
MSU's current term were among the
measures taken to ease economic woes.
OPINIONS VARIED in Lansing
yesterday on whether MSU's rapidly
worsening condition influenced
Although the University is slotted for
possible increase of $17
illion-compared to $16 million for
Michigan State-these amounts con-
stitute a 12.4 percent increase over last
year for the University, and a 13.9 per-
cent hike for'MSU.
Jim Fielder, budget analyst from the
state Department of Management and
Budget, said MSU's recommended
amount is higher in an attempt to
equalize state appropriations.
ALTHOUGH MSU'S estimated 1981-
82 shortfall is $30 million, and the
University's is $12 million, Fielder said
that these budget differentials were not
taken into consideration when recom-
mendatins were made.
"We reviewed the actual institutional
expenses and developed the amounts
internally," Fielder said.
However, Kenneth Thompson, MSU
vice-president for finance and
operations, said, "We got more because
we need it more. We're still in a crisis."
THOMPSON SAID MSU is attem-
pting to "set programs and services in
order." If enough money cannot be
generated in appropriations, he said,
"future tuition increases and program
cuts are inevitable."
Rumors of possible faculty layoffs
and program retrenchment, and cuts
outlined by MSU President Cecil
Mackey have the university's colleges
reviewing their budgets.
MSU's Business, Social Science,
Literature, Arts and Letters,
Engineering, Agricultural and Natural
Resources, and Natural Sciences
schools are among those facing cuts
ranging from five to 15 percent.
THE TENSION generated from these
negotiations reportedly has spread to
MSU students and faculty.
"We're all really scared," Tom
Hocking, president of the MSU Council
of Graduate Students, said. "It's a
combination of anger, frustration,
worry, and fear."
"I'd say there's stress," said MSU
Natural Sciences senior Marc Elie, a
laboratory assistant who fears he may
lose his job due to budget cuts.
Other appropriations announced
yesterday were $3.7 million for Eastern
Michigan University, $3.9 million for
Central Michigan University, $9.8
million for Wayne State University, and
$4.7 million for Western Michigan

City to sue
By PAM KRAMER
Mayor Louis Belcher told City
Council last night that he will con-
tinue plans to sue the state for cut-
ting fire protection funds to the city.
The decision came despite a
budget proposal submitted yester-
day to the state legislature which
would restore and increase the funds
during the next fiscal year.
GOV. WILLIAM Milliken recently
cut $3 million from the fund that
provided money to cities like Ann
Arbor which provide fire protection
for state buildings. The city claims
Milliken's action violated the
Although the budget proposal
would restore the funds and increase
them by 33 percent, according to
state Budget Director Jerry Miller,
Belcher said he will continue the suit
because the city will not receive its
money this year, and because of the
principle that the state would "ar-
bitrarily override its own laws."
Councilwoman Leslie Morris (D-
Second Ward) expressed- concern
that the proposed budget might be
vetoed in response to the city's suit,
but Belcher said he did not think
vindication would be a problem.
"Headlee probably needs to be
tested, and we probably need the
half-million dollars," Belcher quip-
ped. "As long as the Silverdome
subsidy of $800,000 stays in the
budget, I personally would opt to go
on (With the suit)."
Belcher said he expects to hear
from other cities also interested in
filing suit this week.
