PAUL (AP) Present tax- es will provide ample revenue meet an anticipated million increase in the state's operating expenses for Ihe two years start- ing next i. Gov. Elmer L. Andersen said so Wednesday, repeating a statement he had made during his campaign for reflection. Although departmental and other requests for increases prob- ably will exceed the 5110 million, Andersen said he thought, they could be pared lo stay within that limitation. Tht governor Mid fi holding daily conferences with William Stevenson, administration com- missioner, 16 have Ihe budget ready for start of the legislature. Andersen also made it clear that, regardless of the recount be- ing carried out on petition of DFL Lt. Gov. Karl Rolvaag, he would continue to fill appointive vacan- cies in state offices as they occur. Department heads whose terms expire next month include commissioners: Tom Swain, busi- ness development; Lawrence B. McCabe, aeronautics; and William M. Joyce, liquor control. Andtrwn taid wasn't ing lo accelerate appointment in view of the recount 'but rather to insure continuity of government. Many of the offices to be filled are on regulatory and thus non- controversial boards. On taxes, he said the present structure he believed would ample to provide for Increases needed for school aids, and the university budget. He estimated an additional million will be needed to pay stats aids for elementary and secondary schools. About {18 to million is needed for welfare and mil- lion additional is asked for tht University of Minnesota.

'A 10 per cent income tax cul across the board by Congress would increase Minnesota's in- come tax revenue by Andersen said. (In the event of a federal tax cut, taxpayers would deduct less federal tax payments from their state tax and Ihus swell the state's revenue.) The budget message usually is iven by governor' within 10 lays of the opening of the legisla- ure session. Andersen said, 'We're on schedule."
