Schools / Board may wait for fall report FROM PAGE A1 Part of the funding for the local option budget would come from the state. Officials estimate it would take a property tax levy of 5 mills in the first year to raise the money, because there wouldn't be a full year to raise the money. The levy would decrease in subsequent years. School board members said they were leery of enacting a local option budget without a vote, after two previous attempts were thwarted by voters. "I think that would be inappropriate," said Doug Mull, a school board member. "The community has already spoken twice, and we are not deaf." Board members contacted this week said the best option might be to continue the board's long-range planning process, known as Creating the Future, and see what the public wants. For the past two years, more than 400 residents have worked on several committees to come up with suggestions on how to improve the district's buildings, update classroom technology and decrease class sizes. Those committees now are discussing their ideas at a series of town meetings. The Creating the Future steering committee is to present final recommendations to the school board in the fall. Smith is concerned that if the board approves the Legislature- sanctioned local option budget before the Creating the Future process is completed, "it could breed distrust. But recommendations on a possible bond issue or a larger local option budget to fund school improvements probably can't be pre- "I can't imagine passing up money we're authorized to take." Larry Mathews Salina School Board member sented by the Creating the Future committee before the district budget must be certified, in late August, Smith said. That's why board member Larry Mathews, who will leave the board July 1, said he would support the no-public-vote local option budget. -"I'd hate to go another yearl without that," Mathews said. "1 can't imagine passing up money we're authorized to take. We need to do whatever we can to improve the education of our students." Mull said he was against a knee- jerk local option budget that "doesn't begin to meet the needs' that have developed over the last, three or four years of neglect by the Legislature." Board Member Joni Heim said she didn't want to throw away the work done on Creating the Future by pursuing the local option budget. "We want to give it a chance to work," she said. Board Member Ruth Cathcart-' Rake agreed. "We need to see what community priorities come out of that," she said. No matter what the board does, per-pupil funding will increase for' the 1997-98 academic year. Soetaert said per-pupil state aid will increase $22 next year, from'.' $3,648 to $3,670. And Salina will also;' be eligible for an additional $66 per pupil for a total increase of about"; $646,000.

Governors rein in state spending, focus on tax cuts By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Despite a roaring economy, most states are trimming programs, emphasizing efficiency and saving for a rainy day, the National Governors' Association said Wednesday. And 25 of the 50 states are seeking tax cuts, according to the association's annual fiscal survey. But the survey said that while federal welfare reform is forcing some changes, 43 of the 50 states plan no immediate changes in the level of welfare benefits. Raymond Scheppach, the association's executive director, said that although the nation is in the seventh year of economic expansion, governors are not seeking new or expanded programs. Instead, they are holding to principles of "efficiency, austerity and improved management" while maintaining surpluses averaging 6 percent of revenues to deal with uncertain future developments, he said. Under the new federal welfare law, states must limit the time that recipients can receive cash assistance and place a larger percentage of welfare recipients in jobs. The report noted that the new law gives states the flexibility to set benefit levels for cash assistance payments. On another issue, he said lotteries have not proved a significant source of state revenue. Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None. SANTA FE ADMISSIONS — James E.
