State reps. offer new ta
LANSING (UPI) - Democratic and
Republican leaders yesterday called on
the House Taxation Committee to con-
sider two alternatives - including a
temporary income tax hike - to Gov.
James Blanchard's budget-balancing
House Republican Leader J. Michael
Busch of Saginaw unveiled the alter-
natives to the committee about two
hours after key lawmakers met with
Blanchard on the tax issue.
"I think it's significant that
Republicans are saying they are now
willing to be part of the solution," said
House Speaker Gary Owen after
Busch's presentation. The Ypsilanti
Democrat, however, said the proposals
must be shown to generate enough
money to solve the state's budget crisis.
THE FIRST alternative, the brain-
child of Rep. Richard Young, (D-
bearborn Heights), involves a com-
plicated phasing in and out of an in-
come tax hike over 18 months.
The plan would hike the state's
current 4.6 percent tax to 5.6 percent for
six months retroactive to Jan. 1. A 0.9
percentage point addition would be
tacked on for six months beginning July
1 and then dropped. The original in-
crease would be dropped in June 1984.
Figures produced by Busch indicated
the plan would raise about $1.2 billion.
THE JULY 1 hike would coincide with a
scheduled 10 percent drop in the federal
income tax. Busch said the state tax
hike would not offset the federal reduc-
tion, still leaving more money in
workers' pay envelopes.
The second alternative involves ap-
proving Blanchard's recommended 1.5
percentage point addition to the income
tax, but repealing it Oct. 1 if voters
raise the sales tax from four percent to
five percent at a special election.
Busch said the sales tax hike would
raise $535 million over a year.
IN A MEMO to House Republic ns,
Busch said the plans represent "only
the framework" for alternatives.
He also said Blanchard's $900 million
state budget deficit estimate is too high
and that more ought to be cut from
state spending than Blanchard's
proposed $225 million.

be asked to assist in the evaluation. The'
group will be asked to determine the
likely effects of three levels of cuts -
the 33 percent reduction recommended
by the Budget Priorities Committee,
the 20 percent cut suggested by faculty
in December, and an intermediate
range cut of 25 to 28 percent.
Once the transition team completes
its review, Frye said he will select a
reduction which will save the most
money while still preserving a
"reasonable scope and quality" for the
ASSOCIATE VICE President Robin
Jacoby said the team will haveto
follow guidelines included in the
original budget committee report.
That report recommended a greater
emphasis on graduate and professional
education, improving the student
quality and faculty research, and
strengthening the school's integrated
approach to teaching natural and social
In his statement, Frye said he agrees
with the budget committee's contention
that faculty are being spread too thin
because of "excessive numbers of
specialized courses and fragmented
curricula,replication of instruction
that may be (or could be) offered in
other units, (and) an excessive atten-
tion to the master's level thesis."
HE SAID the school must strengthen
its ties with other units of the Univer-
sity through joint faculty appointments,
research projects and cross-listed
courses. He also recommended study of
the school's off-campus field operations
to find a cheaper way to operate them.
Transition team member Prof.
Steven Yaffee said University officials
have told him they will be receptive to
any recommendation the team decides
"We've been assured there is
flexibility there," he said.
OTHER TRANSITION team mem-
bers are Profs. Burton Barnes, David
Hales, Kenneth Polakowski, and Paul
Webb. Associate Vice President Allen
Spivey will serve as the team's liaison
with the administration, Jacoby said.
Both Frye and Spivey were out of
town yesterday and could not be
reached for comment.
Natural Resources students, who
have become extremely vocal in the
past few weeks as Frye and other
executive officers debated their
school's fate, said they are both happy
and concerned by the decision to con-
tinue the review.
"ON ONE HAND we're relieved, but
on the other, we're disappointed," said
graduate student Martha Tableman.
She said she was delighted the school
would not immediately suffer the 33
percent cut, but said she is disappointed
because the decision "ultimately goes
back to the administration."
