LANSING (AP) - Michigan is
heading into the next budget cycle with
less flamboyance than in recent years.
Gone is the extra money that has
made it easy in the past to hand out tax
cuts, build new prisons and boost the
number of state troopers.
Instead of debates over how the
flood of ever-higher revenue will be
spent, lawmakers and state fiscal
experts will have to cope with a bud-
get expected to increase only 0.5
percent, far less than the rate of
inflation.
"It's clear we're going to be asking
departments to begin to implement
some belt-tightening measures," said
state Budget Director Mary Lannoye,
who will deliver Gov. John Engler's
proposed budget at 11 a.m. Thursday
to a joint session of the House and
Senate Appropriations committees at
the Capitol.
Lannoye said the prudent fiscal poli-
cies of the past have left the state in
good shape even though revenue
growth is expected to slow for the bud-
get year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2001
to Sept. 30, 2002.
A surplus in the state's fund for K-
12 education means the state will be
able to give each school $6,500 per
student and stick with the education
budget already in place through the
2002-2003 school year.
And tax cuts already enacted won't

"We aren't going to be able to afford
any new programs.
- State Sen. Harry Gast (R-St. Joseph)
Senate Appropriations Committee chairman

be touched. The Single Business Tax
will drop from 2.1 to 2.0 percent next
Jan. 1, and the state income tax will
drop from 4.2 to 4.1 percent.
Those are the bright spots. But
money for new initiatives has disap-
peared.
During his annual State of the State
address last Wednesday, Gov. John
Engler presented no new proposals that
would-cost the state money other than a
tax exemption for new high-tech busi-
nesses that, as of yet, don't exist.
Lannoye already has said the esti-
mated $50 million increase expect-
ed in new revenue will fall far short
of the $300 million needed to keep
up with inflation in the new $9.8
billion general fund budget. The
state's overall budget, including fed-
eral dollars and the $10 billion
School Aid fund, is expected to stay
close to this year's $36.5 billion.
"We aren't going to be able to afford
any new programs," warns longtime
Senate Appropriations Committee
Chairman Harry Gast (R-St. Joseph).
"We'll have to be restrained and con-

strained."
Engler's proposed budgets have
grown 3 percent overall in the past
decade and went up 4 percent ilk the
current budget year. This year's'pio-
posal is expected to grow less thati 1
percent.
Even that could prove optimistic.
Senior economist Robert Kleine of
Public Sector Consultants, a Lansing
think tank, expects slow economic
growth throughout 2001 before things
pick up early in 2002.
That could mean more economic
pain, especially for Michigan, where
December revenues from the state's 12
major taxes dropped 9.1 percent from
a year ago, according to the Senate
Fiscal Agency.
The national unemployment rate
went up to 4.2 percent in Janiiary
and many economists now say the
manufacturing sector is in a eces-
sion. Factory orders for computers,
office equipment, communications
products and primary metals,
including steel, fell sharply in
December.

AATA
Continued from Page 1A
"I don't think either party will do anything that doesn't
make good business sense," Cook said.
Cook said integrating AATA with the University bus sys-
tem will not have the same effect as it did at Ohio Sate
because the two campuses are arranged differently.
"The buses in Ohio run main campus to north campus and
do a circulation on campus," Cook said. "The University (of
Michigan) campus is set up so that the roads weave through
the community"
Cunningham said the goal of the University is not to
reduce the service, but to improve it. The efficiency of the
system would undergo continual examination.
"We believe any contract we have will specify service stan-
dards. We will do this only a year at a time, so if we are unsat-
isfied with service, we can try to improve the service," he said.
A union bus driver who asked to remain anonymous said
the University community will be unhappy with AATA's
service because they will not be able to operate buses which
stop at a location every two and a half-minutes.

"The Bursley-Baits route operates at peak times when
people are. going to class in the morning," the driver said.
"AATA is not going to do that."
Some drivers said the main consequence of a partnership
with AATA is the loss of service to students. Widespread
AATA bus use might mean fewer stops on mornings when
students need to go to class and no late-night service oh the
weekends.
Cunningham refuted the possibility of less stops and
locations. "It is our goal not to reduce service, but to
improve it," Cunningham said. "We have the NiteOwl
that goes till 2 a.m., and the AATA would also have to
operate until 2 a.m."
Cunningham also said the waiting period between bus
arrivals will remain the same or will be improved. "The bus
stop time has to be as short or shorter and we have to be
able to stop at all the places we have currently," he said.
The drivers have formed a committee of student and
union drivers who will speak at the University Board of
Regents meeting on Feb. 15. Members of Students for
Organized Labor and Economic Equality have agreed to
work with the drivers because it is a labor issue.

because there is a high mortality and
hospitalization rate."
Conroy said Yale has the facilities
to handle any complications from the
drug. "If the (Yale) UHS offers any
treatment or procedure or drug it has
the expertise and personnel that is
needed," he said.
RALY views the drug as "just a new
method. If there were a new method of
cataract surgery the university would
offer that" Barber said.
The Pro-Life League also fears that
the new drug will make abortion more
convenient.
"As a compromise, Yale should make
it just as easy for women to have chil-
dren, and Yale doesn't do that," Vilen-
sky said.
Yet Barber said she does not see the
new drug as making abortion a more
viable option.
"It is not a major concern," she said.
"Any woman who's in this situation will
carefully weigh all her options and sim-
ply having another procedure is not
going to make her want to elect abor-
tion."
TELEFUND

receive a $1,000 grant for that univer-
sity's general scholarship fund.
Michigan Telefund began calling
seniors yesterday. They hope to reach
3,500 students.
Donating over the phone is not the
only way seniors can contribute. Any
senior who would like to can make his or
her contribution online. The calling will
continue through Feb. 11, but the com-
petition with Michigan State seniors
does not officially end until March 30.
Leigh Sanderson, the Michigan Tele-
fund program manager in charge of the
senior challenge, cautions students that
"Michigan State is already ahead to
date, so we really need to get moving.
We can beat State by having a higher
percentage of participating seniors, I am
pretty confident."
Brian Griffin, assistant director of
annual giving at Michigan State, said
he is equally optimistic. "I think it is
going to be a great competition, hope-
fully we can keep our lead."
Although the chance to compete

and heading in the right direction,"
said Philip Power, a University regent
during Duderstadt's presidency.
Duderstadt said he believes the
small liberal arts colleges will have the
easiest time adjusting but that he has
not lost hope for the University.
"The Harvards and Oberlins will be
very nimble in changing while still
protecting their values. Some people
think that universities won't survive,
but not me of course;" Duderstadt said.
Duderstadt said that as society
changes, so will its needs, thus chang-

ing the kind of education required for
success.
"The needs of society are no longer
confined to four years, it is a lifetime
of learning," he said.
Duderstadt has made his commit-
ment to the University evident in his
32 years here. As a professor, he
teaches a class for graduate students to
prepare them for academic careers, as
well as a first-year class on the dangers
of technology.
"You can't understand what the Uni-
versity is about unless you teach. In
addition, serving as a leader of a uni-
versity gave me a much broader view,'
Duderstadt said.
