THURSDAY,. DECEMBER 14, 1950 Arkansas Legislative Group Hacks Budgets of Both Large and Small BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS LITTLE ROCK, Dec. 14. (/p>—The Budget-cutting Arkansas Legislative •pound] can't b« accused of picking ^n little guys. Having already dealt with some Pretty influential officeholders, the Council yesterday acted In a somewhat summary manner with two of the biggest—Governor McMalh and Secretary of StaU C. G. Hall. The council .slashed away at a McMath-sponsored budget for his own office and the governor's mansion. And'when Hall didn't submit , » budget for maintenance of the ; state capitol and its grounds, the , Council "made" one for him, fixing , the total at the same amount set s by the 1949 legislature. * Of course, It may all turn out to - be only shadow boxing. The Council | niakes recommendations to the leg* Islature. But the legislature appro- \ priates the money—sometimes more '•*, than is collected to be spent. ; Besides its harsh treatment of -. the governor and secretary of state, •• the council: •' Reduced the Slate Welfare De; partment Budget, eliminating a • proposed salary increase for the di; re-tor In the process: i Moved to make the Arkansas ; . Safety Council inoperative by re- jfcjcctlng outright Its request, for ^fnnds: and, ~, Voted to allot no funds for pen- 1 sion payments to retired supreme court Justices, circuit Judges and ' chancellors. • Budget Revision Asked :•• The governor's office had been : asked to revise its original budget i so^ as to include automobiles (pur- V chased by the-State Highway De: partment but used by the governor •; and staff) and their maintenance ' .Yesterday, when . the . revision , hadn't been received, • a' messenger V was sent to the. governor's office to i ask why.: ". ;-"-.- ..•• ;' Word came back that the govern- I or's • executive. . secretary.

It -turned • : down a $1.000 salary increase asked for Woods, who now makes $5000 ?]I!™ a " y - K cut * 2 8.WO from the $40.000 asked for operation and improvement of the governor's mansion in 1951-52. This was achieved by eliminating J25.000 which had been'asked for a garage, driveways and landscaping at the mansion ind by reducing ^ from $5,000 to 1*2.000 an allotment for mansion ; "groceries." J3,«C« Reduction Voted A similar $3,000 reduction was voted for the following fiscal year, when the garage item didn't recur. The council approved an annual budget of $31,500 for all governor's office salaries—a reduction of $2,400 from the $33,900 requested. An allotment of $15,023 was recommended for maintenance of the capltol and Its grounds after the committee received word from Hall he wasn't ready to submit a budget for the purpose.
