Northwert Arkantas TIMES, Trturs,, Od. 17, 1974 FAVlTTEVILLi, AKKAHSAt Bishop Pushes For $ 29 -Million For UA Construction LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Dr. Charles E. Bishop, president of the University of Arkansas, and his chancellors said Wednesday the Legislative Council should go beyond the budgets for the university system that the state Higher Education Board has said should be given top priority during the next biennium. Bishop asked the legislators to provide the entire $29 million for construction at the university campuses that the board had recommended and not merely the $16.5 million that the board had assigned top priority. . The board had suggested that the legislature specifically bar the colleges and universities from issuing revenue bonds to supplement the construction funds that are approved by the 1975 legislature. The institutions are enlarging several construe tion projects -by issuing bonds to supplement state appropria tions. Bishop urged the legislators not to follow the board's sug gestion. "If passed," he said "such action would preclude our building projects that may be partially funded or which cost more than the estimates." He also said the university might not be able to start con slruction on several building authorized by the legislature ii 1973 and 1974 because building costs had outstripped the origi nal estimates. Because of inflation, Bisho said, the time lag between ob taining legislative appropria tions for buildings and actua construction "is killing us." Dr. Olin Cook, director of th Higher Education Departmen told the council that the state colleges and universities woul need an additional $78 millio during the next two fisca years. Cook" gave the lawmakers a erview of the recommenda- ns from the Higher Educa- n Board. The head o! each hool is to make his own pre- ttation lo the council today d Friday. Cook said the board- has rec- mmended $105.7 million for gher education facilities in ,cal 1976 and $121.6 in fiscal 77. The current budget is 5.1 million.
