Comittees pass
$50 million in
state budget cuts

LANSING (UPI)- The House and
Senate appropriations committees
yesterday approved Gov. William
Milliken's $50 million budget-cutting
executive order slashing $14.9 million in
education funds and $10 million from
the Department of Social Services.
Release of the order -was to have
come Wednesday, but opposition to an-
ticipated school aid cuts resulted in
revisions which delayed action.
INCLUDED IN the order were
eliminations of the legislative science
adviser and the Michigan Consumers
Council. Those cuts caused vehement
opposition among Democratic
representatives, some of whom said the
executive order was an uncon-
stitutional "ploy" to eliminate
programs.
It was revealed earlier this month
following adoption of the six-month, one

percentage point income tax hike that
another $50 million would have to be
hacked out of the budget for the fiscal
year ending Sept. 30. In part, the cuts
are necessary because it appears the
legislature is unwilling to adopt new
taxes on computer games and other
forms of entertainment.
The budget cutting order is the third
to be issued during this troubled fiscal
year.
Opposition to the order had
threatened to cause a further delay in
approval. When the document was
released, only the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee had convened.
Democratic House Appropriations
Committee members were still meeting
with many of the Democratic represen-
tatives not on the committee to hear
questions and opposition to the
proposed order.
