LANSING (UPI) - With less than two
days remainingbefore he gives his first
State of the State message, Gov. James
Blanchard spent much of yesterday
meeting with top Democratic
lawmakers abut the state's budget
Blanchard, who is expected to call for
an income tax hike in his speech
tomorrow, met for several hours behind
closed doors with members of the
House and Senate appropriations
committees and the House Taxation
and Senate Finance Committees.
LEGISLATORS emerging from the
sessions said Blanchard did not tip his
hand about what he will suggest,
"He was asking for recommen-
dations," said Rep. David Hollister, a
Lansing Democrat and influential
member of the House Appropriations
Committee. "I don't think he's made
up his mind."

An assistant manager at Dooley's
bar, 310 Maynard, was threatened by a
man with a knife late Saturday night,
Ann Arbor police said yesterday. Police
said the suspect was blocking a door-
way and pulled a knife on the manager
when asked to move. The man then fled
on foot and was last seen running north
on Maynard St.

Stereo equipment valued at$197was
taken from an apartment on the 600
block of Church St. some time between
6 and 10 p.m. Sunday. Police said the
thieves apparently entered through an
unlocked door and took the equipment.
No arrests have been made.

committee member, said there was lit-
tle overall agreement about a budget
"HE JUST heard about 40 different
ways to balance the budget," he said.
"The only consensus is that people are

Although Blanchard has not
specifically endorsed an income tax
hike, a special bi-partisan "crisis coun-
cil" he appointed recommended last
week that the levy be raised tem-
porarily to as much as 6 percent. It now
stands at 4.6 percent.
The council also recommended up to
$325 million in spending cuts.
Blanchard said many of the council's
conclusions were the same and his own
and he is expected to reveal his
proposals for curing the state's
estimated $850 million budget deficit in
the State of the State message.
'The only consensus is that people are
resigned to the fact there's going to have to
be some cuts and some tax increases.'

The cost of the security im-

by rent increases over the next five
years, Quin said.

called the proposed ordinance "nuts,"
