Betts said President Carter's proposal to balance the federal budget shows "he's beginning to understand and to remember a promise he made a lew years ago." "But Carter's doing all this alter accepting budget delicits of $100 billion ; he's now reacting to a problem he's exacerbated," said Betts, who tavors a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget. Betts blames the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency (El'Ai tor the lark ol progress against the energy crisis. "The Department ol Energy has a budget higher than the profits of all the oil companies and yet we have higher prices and a greater dependence on foreign energy," Betts said. Councilman f'hillip Atinger, chairman of City Council's finance committee, said the city should know how much revenue will be generated from the tax alter the April 15 tiling deadline. Expected revenues from the tax have been lagging, causing some concern among city officials. About $ 100,000 was expected to be generated during the six months that the tax was in ellect.

"We should expand the number of dollars for the use of coal because it's the best single fossil luel available that we control," Betts said. He's not as enthusiastic about the role ol nuclear energy in the country's energy luture, but favors its usage "unless it can be tound to have a proven detrimental ellect on human lile." And as tor beating John Glenn, he remains confident. i ve talked to coal miners and steel workers and they're all concerned about losing their jobs, inflation and governmental regulations. "And as the lederal government's role in Inllation and the other problems becomes better understood, one ol the persons that is going to be held accountable is John Glenn." services Atinger said the city is waiting to see how much tax revenue comes in before deciding on what should be done about street paving this year. The city also collects a $5 license-plate lee for street work. With the state changing to selling license plates year-around, it's unknown when the city will get the revenue, Atzinger said.

However, Atinger said he believes the city will be able to olior uninterrupted services as no city worker layolls are contemplated this year.
