In action yesterday, the ftroup voted to postpone some $7.fi85.000 in building requests, nnd further directed departmental heads that they must present some idea as to how their building programs can be linanced. The state Hospital building plans were exempt from (tils ruling, and were to be aired at today's session. Generally, yesterday was a day Hint found the committee back-i tracking. The results proved beneficial to at least two state departments and one new state job. The Resources and Development Commission revised budget was approved at $1,611,000; the Slate Police Department sot a 534.000 Increase up to $384.950; and the In- ai;ain-out-airain job ot liaison man between Oov.
