"I.ast session’s spending bill would be below the revenue projected now, and it could be added to or deleted from.” Kuempel said. “At this point, we have to look at every idea.” Kuempel did not like Bullock’s suggestion to legislators to pass a resolution demanding a bill from the House Appropriations Committee by a certain date. “Resolutionget passed all the time, telling us to act, but not where to get the money.” Kuempel said. “I think to demand a deadline is just a ploy for Bullock to get his name in the paper. When the deadline isn’t met, he can say, ‘see, I told you so.”’ The House Appropriations Committee met Thursday to consider budget requests from numerous state agencies, and Rep. Bill Presnal, D-Bryan, said the panel hoped to complete a budget Sunday. But the latest drop in estimat ed revenues could now delay that hope. Kuempel speculated. “Regardless of when it comes out, we’ll get our job done. We’ll get our business finished — and that’s not wishful thinking, just fact.” Not dead yet Hyatt plan would get Braniff flying again GRAPEVINE, Texas IAP) - The Hyatt International Corp. hotel chain has proposed a deal that could put part of Braniff International's idle fleet of jets back in the skies under the grounded airline's name, officials say. Hyatt's proposal to use 31 Braniff jets and 2,000 former workers will be presented to a Fort Worth bankruptcy court April 18, Braniff chairman Howard Putnam said Thursday. The Hyatt offer is similar to an earlier, unsuccessful operating agreement Braniff and Pacific Southwest Airlines in that “an outside investor puts some money into a reorganized Braniff,” Putnam said. “The difference is, Hyatt says we want majority control of the company,’ and they also want creditors to put up cash," Putnam said. Earlier Thursday, a group of former Braniff pilots said that they prompted Hyatt to make the offer for partial resumption of flight operations, which involves an undisclosed amount of cash and stock. The proposal must still be approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge John Flowers and Braniff creditors. The proposal “contemplates an investment by H>att into the reorganized Braniff in return for an interest-bearing note and a substantial amount of the voting stock of the reorganized Braniff,” Putnam said in a prepared statement. Waylon McMullen, a Dallas lawyer for the Braniff pilots, declined to disclose the amount of assets involved in the proposal. “Our review of it (the Hyatt proposal) indicated that it would put Braniff back in the air as a Dallas-based operation; it will return employees to work; and that’s an exciting event for the employees," McMullen said during a news conference Thursday afternoon. He said the pilot group, headed by two retired pilots, also was backed by the Teamsters Union and Air Line Pilots Association. McMullen said they approached Hyatt about three weeks ago about the plan. Putnam was contacted about the same time by Bruce I^edbetter, a Dallas associate of Hyatt chairman Jay Pritzker. “Our proposal, if accepted, will meet your objective of putting Dallas-based Braniff back in the air," Ledbetter wrote in a memo. Braniff suspended operations last May and filed for protection from its creditors in federal court. A Hyatt spokeswoman confirmed that the Rosemont, 111., company had made the proposal to Braniff. “Hyatt was approached by former employees of Braniff to assist in the recommencement of Braniff’s flying operations,” Karen Rugen said. “Toward this end, Hyatt has made a proposal to the debtors in possession and to the various creditor groups. If they support this proposal, and it receives approval of the court, we anticipate substantial Dallas support and recommencment of operation as soon as possible,” she said. Putnam congratulated the pilots, who first approached Hyatt about the deal, on their enterprise, but criticized them for breaking news of the plan. “As far as we were concerned, the proposal was confidential, addressed to Braniff, the secured creditors, and unsecured credtiors’ committee,” he said. Putnam also debated whether Braniff’s name would still be used in the operation to be controlled by Hyatt. AUSTIN (AP) - A fired telephone directory salesman who had filed a lawsuit against Central Telephone Co. of Texas died of an apparent drug overdose in his motel room here, officials say. Results of an autopsy on the body of Conrad “Skip” Lahser, who was found in his Holiday Inn room Thursday, were expected to be released today, officials said. Lahser claimed he was fired from a sub- ★ Fluoride. Coutiiiued from Page LA announced at an emergency City Council meeting at 5:30. Mayor CXA. (Skip) Stratemann Jr. also praised the recount coiiumttee after announcing the results. “Each of the people have served on election committees in the past,” he said. “They’re fair. They know how to read these ballots. They each have individual minds of their own.” Boettcher said Friday he had no complaints concerning the recount. “Everything was very well done. We had a very fine committee.” Some ballots had erasures, he said, but even those were clear, he added. “It was very plain. ..there was no question.” Asked if the issue would be pursued further, he said, “Under an amendment program, there is nothing we can do” (regarding another recount). A court injunction to halt fluoridation is the only other remedy, but he did not indicate if that would be pursued. Sarkozi recalled only one unusual ballot which was counted. One voter wrote on the ballot that he did not understand it, but was against fluoride. That was counted as a “yes” vote, Sarkozi said, since the law stales the voter’s intent must be clear. Another voter marked both “yes” and “no” boxes on all four charter amendments Saturday, she added. That ballot was not counted. Stratemann also said criticism of the ballot’s wording was “undue and unfounded.” He added, “It’s also unfair for anybody to criticize implementation of this particular issue.” Since the results did not change, the group which requested the recount will have to pick up tile tab. Costs include 960 paid to committee members (|4 per hour for five hours’ work), and may include some of Chunn’s legal fees. Council members voted to check into Chunn’s expenses after approving an emergency ordinance declaring the results official. The recount was the latest development in a three-year battle over fluoridation. A charter amendment on fluoride passed by a scant 15 votes in August, 1980. Charter amendments cannot come up for another vote until two years have elapsed, so fluoride opponents waited for that to pass and then filed a petition in February requesting a new election. Actual fluoridation, which had been delayed several times, began February 28. sidiary firm of Centel last September after he inquired about the propriety of certain company policies to the Federal Communications Commission. His March 22 suit against Centel alleges harassment, illegal wiretapping and corruption. “There was a handgun found in his room, but he appeared not to have been shot. It appeared he had taken an overdose of drugs,” said Travis County Medical Examiner Robert J. Bayardo. Holiday Inn manager Mike Johnson said a cleaning woman discovered Lahser’s body about 3 p in., and Johnson summoned police. Investigators said Lahser apparently dictated notes on the tapes found in his room. A video casette and several audio cassette tapes were found in the room along with a handwritten note. “They said there was no reason to suspect his death was anything but a suicide,” said Broadus Spivev of Austin, Lahser’s ancrney. ★Trials Continued from Page LA Court Judge Robert Pteuffer, if the trial could be moved to New Braunfels, and Pfeuffer sent Clark back two open court dates — May 2 and 9. A spokeswoman for the Fort Bend District Attorney’s Office confirmed that Judge Clark had picked May 2, although Allen said Friday he has not received the final paperwork m the mail.
