New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 19, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas PSQ*16 HortM-Ztttung. New Braunfels. Texas State House panel looking for cuts Thursday, March 19,1987 Crossword AUSTIN (AP) - The House Appropriations Committee is working on a mission that Speaker Gib Lewis says borders on the impossible: whittling down the budget without hurting too much or too many. The prospect had Lewis speculating Wednesday about a broader sales tax base, a state lottery and a state income tax He said the sales tax expansion would help, but probably has little chance of win rung approval this year The lottery would help, he said, but not enough And, although he remains opposed to an income tax, Lewis conceded he is feeling the pressure of the state budget crunch ‘i’m personally opposed to a personal income tax but at the same time I realize I have a certain degree of responsibility for keeping this state going,” he said “Sometimes reality will make you soften those positions Tho appropriations committee Wednesday began its agency-by-agency review of 1988-89 spending requests The process began with agency reviews by the various House committees Those committees forwarded to the appropriations panel a series of budget recommendations that are $6 8 billion above projected 1988-89 state revenues About $2 9 billion of that difference could be covered by a tax bill that has been approved in the House and is awaiting Senate action That leaves a difference that Lewis said adds up to budget cuts, another tax increase or a combination of troth “I think everything gets nailed.” he said when asked where the cuts would be felt “I don't think anyone escapes the ax. to tell you the truth.” Appropriations Chairman Jim Rudd. asked the same question, said. “Ask me in about two weeks and I II give you the impact.” Rudd. D-Brownfield. said it would take 7 percent spending cuts in all state agencies to meet the revenue projection and give the criminal justice system and Department of Mental Health and Mental Retarda Prisons closed for 7th time HUNTSVILLE AP' The Texas prison system remains closed today atter more than Too convicts were admitted during a two-dav period, officials said I he 26 unit prison system will be closed possibly until next week repeating an open-and-shut cycle that leaves the system open two days a week prison spokesman David Nunnelee said I he Texas Department of turret t ions closed its doors to new inmates at the end of the day Wednesday because the number of inmates sur passed a state-mandated 95 percent capacity limit. Nunnelee said As of midnight Tuesday there were 88.521 inmates or 95 28 percent of capacity 113 inmates over the limit Nunnelee said We released 155 inmates today, and we're projecting an intake of 225.” Nunnelee said Wednesday On Tuesday, the first day the prison system reopened after a five day shutdown. 180 new inmates ar rived, while only 131 inmates were released, he said This week s closing is the seventh time in as many weeks for the Texas prison system the nation s third largest Prisons admitted new ar rivals Tuesday after the number of intr.ates dropped b**low the limit Speed limit roll call vote WASHINGTON <AP Here is how Texans voted in the 217 2o6 roll call Wednesday by which the House coted to raise the speed limit on some rural stretches of interstate highways from 55 mph to65 mph A yes vote is to increase the -peed limit V oting yes were 92 Democrats and 125 Republicans Voting no were 156 Democrats and .*» Keput beans xxx denotes those not voting Present denotes those who voted they were present at the time of the vote but did not vote yes’ or no on the issue I here is one vacancy in the 435 member House Texas Democrats Andrews no Brooks, yes Bryant, yes.

Lewis predicted the appropriations committee, which is working with recommendations forwarded by-other House committees, w ill be able to cut the shortfall between $1 billion and $1.5 billion At that point, attern tion would turn to Gov Bill Clements, who has vowed to veto any tax bill other than the $2.9 billion extension of the temporary sales and motor fuels tax rates now in effect “I think we can sit down and identify those areas with him and let him consider their importance," Lewis said of the spending above projected revenue. “Possibly he ll be willing to say. Yes. we are going to have to have it.’” But. so far. Clements is still very firm in his veto threat, according to Lewis. The speaker said the creation of a state lottery would be his first choice for a new revenue-maker for the state However, the comptroller's office has projected that would make only $381 million for the state in 1988 89 Other possible money-makers mentioned by Lewis were a broaden ed sales tax and a state income tax. two ideas he said probably could not win approval this year ACROSS I Incision 5 Witch of 10 Greatest 14 Against 15 Ruth s mother-in-law 16 Across 17 Bachelor . 18 Decay 20 Routes 22 Mr Chaney 23 Reprieve 24 Codicil 26 Be troubled 27 Fettered 30 Most handy 34 Trotters 35 Obligation 36 Eroded 37 Arrow poison 38 Threesome 40 Stupefy 4 1 Opera house 42 Thailand once 43 Do penance 45 Frustrate 47 Cords 48 Common contraction 49 Flight unit 50 Gap 53 Expose 54 Sure thing 58 Home builder 61 Hartebeest 62 Aware of 63 Separator 64 Eon segments 65 Equal 66 Extra 67 Depress DOWN 1 Breathe 2 Pilaster 3 Photocopy 4 Skyscraper 5 Finish 6 Fastened 7 Distress 8 Arab state 9 Split 10 Standards I 1 Arena 12 Bristle 13 Card 19 Oat 21 Without tat 25 Predetermine 26 Canadian province PREVIOUS PUZZLE SOLVED 1 2 3 4 14 17 20 L I CE A L VS r‘a Vt 27 Anthropoid informal 28 Sharpener 29 Ridge 30 Novel pre! 31 Gnawed 32 Cheated 33 f abric shelters 35 Dull 39 race 40 Peppy 4.
