Huge 2 Garden City Telegram Tuetnluy, November 22, 1977 State Budget Requests Near $2 Billion By LEW FERGUSON Associated Press Writer TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Dr. M. D. INiedens Chiropractic Office 811 Main Garden City Hours 8:30-5:30 ^Thurs.-Sut. 8:30-12 Slate budget requests for fiscal year 1979 inched to within a whisker of the $2 billion mark, an Associated Press compilation showed. Budget Director James W. Bibb concluded major budget hearings for the year Friday after hearing from the state hospitals. Only two small GARDEN MEDICAL SPECIALISTS WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY & FRIDAY OF THIS WEEK IF YOU NEED YOUR DOCTOR PLEASE CALL THE EMERGENCY ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL 275-6111 agencies are yet to be heard next week. Bibb and Gov. Robert F. Bennell now will begin finalizing Ihe budgel recommendations Bennetl will submit to the Legislature in mid-January. Bennell has vowed his recommendations will not require seeking any lax increases lo fund. The budgel recommendations are expected to total somewhere belween $1.85 billion and $1.90 billion— up from the $1.799 billion budget Bennetl recommended to the 1977 session for the current fiscal year. The lasl Legislalure approved expenditures of $1.81 billion, but actual state spending is always slightly more than approved, because of Slale Finance Council authorizations for additional epxenditures during the year. State agencies which made Iheir budgel appeals before Bennett and Bibb Ihis fall asked for spending authority LIVE EVERY NITE GRAIN BIN "BLACK FROST" 9:00 to 1:00 next fiscal year totaling $1.915 billion, the AP figures showed. Bibb and his staff make no compilation until final preparation of the governor's recommendations. Of that total, $891.3 million would have to come from the state general fund, and the rest from federal funds and other sources, such as fees charged for state services. Bibb reduced the total requests of the agencies to $1.767 billion, of which $803.09 million would come from taxes and other revenues which gointo the, general fund. The budget approved for the current i fiscal year required $850 million from the general fund. Besides the state agency requests presented in the budget hearings, somewhere between $62 million and $75 million must be tacked onto the fiscal 1979 budget for expenditures which are not reviewed in the budget hearing process. These include the $4 million- plus the Legislature will approve to run its own oper- ationes; at least $11 million to operate the state Unified Judi- cial Department, which includes the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals and the public defender system; $11 million for homestead property tax relief, and more than $36 million of state income tax revenue which by statute is rebated to local school districts. ' Also, an interim ways and means committee appears primed to recommend the stale put nearly $11 million more into paying for non- judicial personnel under the slate's new unified court system. The counties now pay those people's salaries, but the Legislature has promised to assume some or all of those costs eventually. If the added tab comes to $75 million, the total budget requests for next fiscal year come to $1.99 billion. Add the $75 million lo Bibb's recommendations and the total is about $1.84 billion. The total general fund requests would be $966 million, and Bibb's recommendations on spending from the general fund would be $878 million. What Bennett recommends NOTICE WE WILL CLOSE AT 5:00 P.M.
