MONDAY, JUL"Y"28, '10-17 BLITHEVlLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NlEWS GOP Economy Figure 'Phoney' Republicans Claim Budget Cur To Exceed $2,800,000,000 By DAYTON MOORE (United Press Staff OrrrspondcnO WASHINGTON, July 28 (UP) — Republicans today chalked up a reduction of about, $2.800,000,000 in new appropriations requested by President Truman (luring the past (ession of confess. 'Some Democrats charged that more than a third of the economy figure was "phoney." But Republicans replied thai not only entire amount "solid," but Uiul cancellation of part of the old. carryover appropriations would make the final budget, savings mjch higher. Some OOP estimates pili the total at between 54,000,000.000 and $5,000.000.000. Congressional nnd Budget Bureau liscal experts still were camp:ur.i!{ the amounts of Uic Individual a,>, propriation bills for this fiscal year. Congress did not complete 'its final approval of five of the 15 /c- Bular and supplemental money bili; until late Saturday In the fin.ii hours of the first session of tne 80th Congress. Preliminary budget figures showed the Republican-controlled Congress approved around $31.{iOO,000.- 000 of the S34,'!00,000.000 requested by President Truman for 1948 cash appropriations. President Truman's requests were *3.1M>.0(iO,C03 higher for fiscal 1943 htan he estimated last January. | Part of this resulted from adding to the budget new expenditure items, like the S«to,COO,000 Gree-k- Turklsh aid program. Part resulted I from adding to 1S48 bills some of j the items originally listed for 19^7 I Deficiency Appropriation bills. Republicans and Democrats were further apart on estimates of expenditures for the fiscal year started July i. president Truman last January estimated 1948 government spending at $37,500,000.000 and I Budget Bureau officials said next I month's revised estimate still wdulil | be close to this amount. They said new expenditures — | like the Greek-Turkish nirt pm- I gram and flood control work — and [shifts in spending from fiscal 1947 jto 1948 would just about offset the I appropriation culs. House Republicans early in the [session set n goal of whackii'j I $6,000,000.000 off the S37.500.COO.OOO (spending figure. Senate Republicans set themselves a target of 54,1500,000.000.
