Current comment nothing to share but a deficit six governors who conferred with president Nixon told the chief executive that states Are facing an economic disaster unless they receive heavy financial Aid. Gov. Richard Ogilvie of Illinois for example informed or. Nixon his states budget had jumped by 29 per cent this year and was projected to Rise by 20 per cent in each of the next two years. A with a growth rate in our state of about 6 per cent obviously this Means we either go bankrupt quit funding welfare or just completely dismantle state said governor Ogilvie. In Ordinary times the Federal government May have been Able to give More financial help to states. These Are not Ordinary times. The Federal government is p. Bably in worse condition than any of the petitioning state governments. It is projecting a National budget deficit of $15 billion for the current fiscal year. So How can the Nixon administration Promise much help to state governments that Are getting into a financial bind the problem has come about because the Federal government in the last to years has taken an increasingly Large share of the tax dollars available quite often for purposes that Are highly questionable. States which should have a far better share of the tax Dollar to meet their expanding needs find that it is increasingly hard to gain approval of new state taxes on top of the already huge Federal tax take from their states. Thus the drive for Revenue sharing grows. But until the Federal budget can be pared Down to size it is doubtful states will get much More than promises of additional Aid from St. Louis Globe Democrat .
