Engler's vetoes send budget
talks back to state legislature
by Bethany Robertson
Daily Government Reporter
State budget talks were sent back to
the discussion table last week after Gov.
John Engler vetoed large parts of a bud-
get bill approved last month by the state
The bill was designed by House
Democrats as an alternative to the 9.2
percent across-the-board state cuts
passed earlier in the year.
However, Engler did approve parts of
the budget plan that will restore funding
for corrections facilities, the state po-
lice, some salaries for Department of
Social Services employees, and mental
and public health facilities.
All other state departments will con-
tinue under the original reductions.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP)
- A United jetliner with 25 people on
board crashed in flames as it ap-

Sunday morning, and there were appar-

United Flight 585 en route from Den-
ver crashed at 9:55 a.m. four to five
miles south of the airport, the Federal
Aviation Administration in Washington
said. There were 20 passengers on board
and a crew of five.

The legislature must now negotiate a

Engler Press Secretary John Truscott
said the governor vetoed the majority of
the bill because, instead of reducing the
estimated state deficit of $1.1 billion, it
authorized additional spending.
"We just can't spend money that we
don't have," Truscott said.
But David Wiener, legislative aid to
Representative David Hollister (D-Lans-
ing), said another part of the Demo-
cratic plan - now being considered by
the Senate - would increase state rev-
enues to offset the additional spending.
"(Engler's) refused to even acknowl-
edge that we are offering any revenues,"
Wiener said. One example he gave was
a money-saving early retirement plan for

Some students said that al-
though the war has ended, they are
still not sure the world has seen
the last of Saddam Hussein.
"I don't trust Saddam as long as
he is in power - anything could
still happen," engineering sopho-

TV, all the Iraqi's are saying, 'Kill
Saddam.' But all we are seeing is
what the media is showing us."
Hussein was the just thing to do.
"I'd like him to be tried in front
of an international jury. If it wasn't
for him, none of this would have
happened," Schwehr said.
LSA senior Lisha Cook said,
"Saddam should pay for the crimes
that he directed, even if he didn't
personally commit them."
