Milliken considers adding more budget cuts
LANSING (UPI) - Gov. William
Milliken said yesterday that larger
budgets cuts for 1982 arerbeing con-
sidered and that it would be-"un-
thinkable' for the Legislature not to
agree on a budget-balancing plan by
Milliken, emerging from the latest in
a series of meetings with key legislative
leaders and budget officials, said ad-
ditional 1982 cuts would probably not
total more than $10 million, a figure he
described as "not large."
THE GOVERNOR was already
proposed a $451 millin budget-cutting
executive order for this year, coupled
with. a plan to raise the state's income
tax from 4.6 percent to 5.3 percent.
Milliken also said the leadership is con-
sidering both 1982 and 1983 budget
years ,together and that he may issue
executive orders for both years.
The administration earlier estimated
next year's budget shortfall at about
In earlier meetings, Milliken and the
leaders agreed to strip from the
"proposals his plan for using part of the
income tax in 1983 for transportation.
THEY H)AD also agreed to come up
with a solution, including taxes and
budget cuts, to Michigan's budget crisis
by April 8, when the Legislature is ex-
pected to adjourn for Easter, and that
state employees must make some con-
"We have a very broad agreement
that it has to be done before Easter
break," Milliken told reporters. "It
would be unthinkable that we not do it
by Easter. At the 11th hour, it will all
fall into place." Milliken also virtually
ruled out additional cuts in welfare
benefits; saying "tens of thousands of
people" are suffering, adding "this is
not the place where cuts should be
May GOP lawmakers, however, have
recently indicated they may not sup-
port a solution which does not include
further reductions in welfare spending.

Also on next Monday's ballot voters
will be asked two questions that do not
involve expenditures. The first,
Proposal A, asks voters to approve the
acquisition, at no cost, of a public utility
to generate electricity. A. second,
Proposal E, asks for an unlimited tax
pledge designed to retire bonds issued
to purchase the Michigan Theater in
THE CITY'S Chamber of Commerce
is probably the chief backer of Proposal
A. Its president, Christopher Vaughn,
called the proposal "a commendable
effort to produce renewable energy
resources and to generate new
municipal revenue through the sale of
those resources." Vaughn is quick to
point out that the proposal to acquire
the utility does not call for any new tax
of city residents.
Three of the four bond issues on the
ballot would be financed entirely by
new city funds collected through the in-
creased millage. The fourth-Proposal
B to build new city roads-would be
financed partly by a $450,000 federal

ballot, city taxpayers can expect to be,

demonstration in Nablus and an Israeli settler fired his pistol to escape a
road ambush in the occupied West Bank yesterday, the military command
It was the 11th straight day of clashes in a wave of troubles in the occupied
Arab territories in which five Arabs have been killed by Israeli gunfire
Prime Minister Menachem Begin's government, which said Sunday it
would not tolerate violence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, was bracing for
trouble among Israel's Arab citizens today, the sixth anniversary of clashes
that killed six Israeli Arabs.
Many of Israel's Arab villages, where one-sixth of the populationlives, will
be on strike today and three marches are scheduled to commemorate those
killed in 1976 and also to protest government policy in the West Bank.
Reagan proposes modest plan
for depressed housing industry
WASHINGTON- President Reagan proposed yesterday a modest
assistance program for the depressed housing industry that offers
regulatory relief but rejects any "budget-busting bailouts."
In a speech at the same hotel where he was shot a year ago tday, they
president asked the National Association of Realtors to support his economic
program, which he said was the only source of long-term relief for the in-
"Stay with us, as I'm sure you will, as we pass through this dark corner in
time," he pleaded. "In your communities and in the Congress, spread the
word that you have faith in these programs."
Reagan said "budget-busting bailouts will only aggravate the interest rate
problem-the underlying problem in the housing industry."
2 Haitians drown off Fla. coast
HIGHLAND BEACH, Fla.- The bodies of fwo Haitian women were
washed up on a beach here yesterday from a freighter that had capsized in
the rough Atlantic. High seas, stiff winds and poor visibility forced official
to stop searching the-ocean for two others missing.
Six survivors struggled to shore through 10-foot waves after their vessel
capsized sometime before midnight Sunday. One man was hospitalized for,
exposure and the others were sent to a refugee camp.
Mike Kelley, a Coast Guard spokesman, said no distress signals or radio
messages were received from the Esperancia, a motorized, wooden-hulled
"There probably wasn't even a radio on board, unfortunately," he said.
"Our first warning that something was wrong was when the survivors swam
Federal officials said they were trying to determine whether the 70-foot
vessel was on a cargo mission or if it carried illegal Haitian refugees.
