TB«,, March II, I»7« GREEI.EY (Colo.) TRIBUNE I I J¥ew budget said best effort of JBC «S£i £.£*!£ 1*. lly CAUL 1I1LL1ARD Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) - Members of the Colorado General Assembly got Iheir first look Monday at the Joint Budget Committee's $1.5 billion spending bill for the next fiscal year -- a record program which would spend $918.1 milMon from the general fund with no tax increase. Members of the committee unveiled the spending measure at a morning news conference, a measure that tops last year's spending by $85 million yet will retain $40 million in the general fund for surplus. Chairman Morgan Smith, D- Brighton, said the budget represents the best effort of the JBC and its staff. "The day yog introduce the Long B1 " is "* "fr the ^ .you make recommendations for Mw spTM""*-*** *l«n you realize you couldn't do every, thing you wanted. "But I think we've done as good a job as we could do with the constraints we're .facing," he said. "Obviously, there isn't enough money to do everything we want to do in regards to the overall spending position." "This particular committee has done the pest job of any committee I've been on," said Sen. Joe Shoemaker, R-Denver, JBC vice chairman and longtime commitee member. There was disagreement, however, between Smith and Shoemaker on the need for a $40 milion surplus. Shoemaker, a fiscal conservative, said the ' bill in the House, controled by Democrats, will determine how much money is left for new programs He said any House increases in operating budgets could reduce the money available "If there is going to be an issue, its going to be new legislation." Smith said there may be justification in raising the operating budgets of some departments because the 140 million held in reserve may be too high. "What's a reasonable figure?" he asked. "If we have a capacity to go back and reduce budgets, do we really need that large a surplus? "I'd like to reduce the surplus and have departments on notice that we are w.tching thenC Smith said The budget, which will be in- trodue^ln^Homethi.^. sioMoesnotincludeadditional spending for new legislative programs nor doe. it include the appropriation.** the legislature itself.

SLAUGHTER Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP)-Colorado's mile-high city, which brought a $30 million list of funding proposals to the General Assembly, will have to settle for alwut half its request. Figures culled from the $918.1 million Long Appropriations Bill introduced in the House on Monday indicate Denver will receive nearly $15 million -about $5 million more than was appropriated last year. lie legislature's Joint Budget Committee released the budget for operation of the state during the next fiscal year, saying it could nut begin to fund all the requests it was presented. In Denver's case that was particulary true. City officials had asked the legis ature to assume the finan- cia burden for several programs not now funded and had asked for whopping increases in other areas. However, a JBC staff mem- her said the $15 million accounts for only those funds directly identifiable for the city and does not include other state money that filters into the city from statewide programs. The staff member said that figue could approach $200 million. Generally, the city's funding request reflected its largest increases in social programs. Here is a breakdown of specific JBC recommendations for particular areas requested by Denver: --$8.5 million for medical indigent assitance and $2.8 million for mental health aid, compared with $8 million appro- prialed last year. The city had asked for a total of $15 million for the two programs. -- $1.6 million for various cul- lural programs including the art museum, natural history museum, botanic gardens, zoo and symphony, compared with $1.4 million last year. The city asked for 53.1 million. --$758,307 for alcoholism treatment and detoxification Professor suggests underground housing as way to save energy centers. The city asked for $3.4 million, up nearly ¥3 million from its appropriation for the current year. --$500,000 for youth diversion andtCorrection programs, compared with a $1.2 million request. The city did not receive any such funds for the current year. --$750,000 for work on Westerly Creek and construction of nature trails. --$246,000 to the Denver Pub- The city also asked that the state pick up the full cost of running the courts and district attorneys offices at a cost of $2.8 million and assume .100 per cent of the cost of welfare above those funds raised by a 3 mill levy, which would cost an additional $1.3 million. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. UPI) -- A University of New Mexico professor says the cost of healing and cooling a house could be sharply cut if modern man would copy prehistoric cavemen and go underground. Wybe J. van der Meer said a 1 .JWO-squarMnot underground house in the Chicago area would cost 67 per cent less to Flats Plant officials 'to cooperate' DENVER (UPI)--Officials of the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant say they will cooperate with a special committee created by Gov. Richard Lamm and Rep. Tim Wii'lii, D-CiIo., to munilor the facility's operations. "We recognize that we must develop a working relationship with the committee that will allow them lo effectively fulfill Ilieir charter and at the same lime assure continued safe, economic and open operation of Rocky Flats," the officials said in a letter to Lamm and Wirth Monday, "To hasten (he development of that relationship, we would like to have the committee visit us here at Rocky Flats as soon as possible." The letter was signed by William M. Lamb, area manager of the Energy Research and Development Administration alid Robert 0. Williams Jr., general manager of Rockwell International.

"I'm not suggesting the concept as a cure-all for the energy crisis," said van der Mccr, who will present his findings at a housing symposi- urn in Atlanta, Ga., in May. "I'm just saying that underground construction offers an alternative that should be more fully explored." Van dcr Mcer, an associate professor in the School of Architecture and Planning.said the natural insulation provided in an underground house could also stimulate development of alternate forms of energy. " Tne reduced heating and cooling requirements projected ° r an underground dwelling would make a "« rnative S J S - tcms sucn as solar encr 8y much more desirable economi- cally and further reduccoverall utility costs," he said. He admits, however, there are obstacles to going underground. 'For one thing, building codes in most parts of the country prohibit underground housing and government mortgage programs for such dwellings practically don't exist. Van der Mcer said the codes arc out of date and "need to be revised to conform to current realities in terms of energy." Another problem, he said, could be a psychological fear of living underground. He said, however, such potential fear may not be difficult to overcome, noting that few studies have been done "with underground spaces that have been made as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
