Bullard wants more spending
By STEPHEN GREGORY
Democratic State Rep. Perry
Bullard said yesterday that if the
state is "to keep the University of
Michigan the engine of the state's
economy," it will have to increase
revenue spending for higher
Addressing the political science
class "Current Issues" Bullard said,
"It is essential to the future of
Michigan that we have a state
government that raises the state's
revenue" to increase funding for
creasing expenses, Bullard said that
spending cuts would lead to higher
tuition and lower faculty pay.
Bullard has said he wants to see the
current tuition at state colleges and
Referring to Republican guber-
natorial candidate William Lucas'
proposed $500 million cut in state
expenses, Bullard said that such a
cut would reduce the $225 million
the University is now receiving
from the state by $12 million.

quarter of the revenue raised from
the 1982 tax increase went to
reducing the state's $1.7 billion
deficit. Buchholzt said she thought
combatting the deficit was the aim
of the tax hike.
Bullard disagreed that the sole
purpose of the tax was to reduce the
deficit and said the other three-
fourths of the revenue went to
"vital human service" for Michigan
residents financially hurt by the
Bullard described Blanchard's
support for a permanent tax increase
as political. He said the governor
knew his tax proposal would be
modified by the State Legislature,
so he bargained for more than he
knew he would get. "In the
legislative process something al-
ways is taken away," Bullard said.

It is essential to the future of Michigan that we have
a state government that raises the state's revenue.'
Bullard proposed that the extra
revenue come from the increased
income the state government will
receive as a result of the recent
federal tax reform. The new tax
bill, which is expected to become
law later this year, will enable the
state to tax some income that is
GOV. JAMES Blanchard,
however, is considering rolling
back the state income tax from 4.6
percent to 4.4 percent, cancelling
out any increased revenue generated
from the federal tax reform.
Bullard also proposed redirecting
funds from state-supported services,
like the penal system, and
channeling them to public colleges

Bullard said, they would also take
funding from social services such as
mental health care and aid to
families with dependant children.
"What do you tell those people?"
LSA sophomore Martin Crew, a
student in the class, felt the state's
welfare system is laden with
problems such as welfare fraud, and
is therefore not working properly.
"And you're asking for more
money," Crew told the rep-
Bullard said that, although he
favors welfare reform, he doubts
state spending on social services
would fall because of it.

"A Democrat who was afraid of
voting against SDI previously now
has a good reason for voting against
it," Tanter said.
ALTHOUGH SDI has be-
come a political stumbling block to
U.S.-Soviet arms control, Uni-
versity researchers who are involved
in SDI-funded projects, refused to
comment on the political im-
plications f their work. Electrical

Prof. Theodore Birdsall said, "I'm
not a politician and do not purport
to be one."
Birdsall and other faculty re-
searchers maintained that research
they are doing is of such a basic
nature that any SDI applications are
far in the future. According to
Chemistry Prof. Adon Gordus, "We
are doing very, very basic research.
The practical applications are so far
distant-maybe 20 years from
now-that nobody has really
thought about it."
United States officials, speaking
on condition they not be identified,
said the U.S. team would try to
salvage at least parts of the deal in
Geneva, where U.S.-Soviet arms
talks are continuing.
"It will be difficult for the
Soviets to forget the fact" that both
sides were willing at one point to
eliminate nuclear missiles in-
Europe, reduce the number of long-
range nuclear weapons to 1,600 in
five years, and altogether in 10
years, one official said.
