Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 23, THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 9 Herald Legislature'Bureau EDMONTON Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely scarecely knew where to squeeze all the money into his billion budget brought down Friday night. After telling the taxpayers the province will pass on more than million in tax cuts and cost reductions, he predicted a budgetary surplus of million biggest in the province's history. And Mr. Miniely has not even calculated what could be an incredible additional million bonanza in oil revenues during the next year as new royalties go into effect and the province garners its share of a federal export tax on crude oil. He told a budget briefing earlier in the day he will be bringing down a revised budget as far as income is concerned after April 1 when oil revenues are established. He said he doesn't know exactly what the province will do with all its money but that the operating expenditures set out for this year would not change. Money, money, money The money will be going into long-term investments and resource companies operated by the government and the Premier will be announcing changes in the province's fiscal policies. EMBARRASSINGLY HIGH In the meantime, it even appeared the treasurer was attempting to keep the surplus figure from being embarrassingly high as far as the rest of the nation-was concerned. One reporter at the briefing termed the shunting of funds to various accounts as "Miniely's Dealies." "Non-budgetary" loans and advances to various government agencies totalled million as one example. As far as the operating budget for 1974-1975 was concerned, the treasurer said spending would increase by 21 per cent. But he insisted that because part of the increase was attributable directly to tax reductions and rebates, increases in operating expenditures were really only 16.5 per cent. Government departments would require "only an average 9.9 per cent increase in manpower." Mr. Miniely also reported to the briefing that the province is in the enviable position of earning more than nine per cent from its new consolidated cash investment trust. The province acts as its own broker for million now in the short-term investment fund. It invests in London, Toronto and New York money markets on 30 to 60 to bases One hundred million dollars is invested for up to a year, the maximum time funds are invested under the scheme.
