SLAUGHTER Associated Press Writer · DENVER (AP) - The legislature's Joint Budget Committee (JBC) has rejected a proposal to build a proposed ¥12.8 million animal medical hospital at Colorado Slate University. The JBC killed the proposal Tuesday after receiving a staff recommendation that the expenditure on the project be trimmed to $4.7 million. A motion lo approve the revised .project died on a 3-3 vote, failing to get a majority of votes needed for passage. The JBC's action followed an intense lobbying effort by school administrators and farm-oriented legislators, including Senate President Fred Anderson, R-Loveland. The JBC was presented with the scaled-down proposal Tuesday. The staff recommended that rather than constructing new facilities, already existing buildings be remodeled and be used in concert with a limited building program. JBC Chairman Rep. Morgan Smith, D-Brighton, argued against approving the project, saying that if it went to the floor of either house in the revised form the project's supporters probably would be successful in securing approval of the entire $12.8 million project. "I think this vote is the equivalent of giving them the whole thing," Smith said. "We're going to end up with the whole thing if we go along with this." However, Sen. Joe Shoemaker, R-Denver, vice chairman ui the JbC, supported the lower recommendation. "If they do that Uiey're going to get the damndest battle they're ever seen. I think reason is going to prevail. -Graver-Hereford news- SMART CHART ·s/3 by Stansbury 1MO.
