Cardin's speech came just after delegates had heard an analysis prepared by their own fiscal staff of the governor's plan to resolve the savings and loan crisis. not overly optimistic that we are going to be able to make a change in the governor's he said. Senate President Melvin mean- was a little more hopeful than Cardin that changes can be made so that depositors will have more than one option.

Steinberg also said the governor acd Gener- al Assembly must present a united front when the state sells bonds next month so that the AAA bond rating will be retained. The analysis presented by William Hatch- Bidding process marred Building problem besets schools By JACQUELINE TENCZA Staff Writer Two school construction bids that were well above budget allocations were caused by a series of misunderstandings and oversights in the bidding school officials say. The problems have school board members concerned about their reputation in the build- ing community and have caused state and county officials to question the school system's expertise in the construction business. The problem started when the million allocated for the Southern Middle School renovation and addition was million less than the low bid. Two months the low bid to build an auditorium at Broadneck Senior High School was more than had been estimated. The County Council's reluctance to approve additional funds for the Southern Middle School shortfall and complications in the bidding prompted the school board to rebid both projects. Although school officials hope to bring in lower bids by hiring a consultant to search for cost savings and interviewing contractors to learn what items boosted they still anticipate shortfalls. are a number of reasons for the high Ronald L. assistant super- intendeot for school support toM the school board. a building boom in the county is resulting in higher and less competitive bid- ding.

Ratchford estimated the cost of the gover- nor's plan at million to million not including any money the state may recov- er from the civil lawsuits it is pursuing against owners and officers of troubled savings and loan associations. Hughes placed the cost at but said he is confident that at least million will be collected from those responsi- ble for the savings and loan problems. Del Robert said he believes Ratchford's range of potential costs is more realistic than the governor's plan. But Neall said he does not feel the gover- nor's plan will change significantly because of the renewed triple-A bond rating. concern is that we make sure we do not underestimate the size of the he said.
