Milliken's executive Thursday afternoon. The order called for a $150 million cut from the state budget to avert what the governor projects as a $298 million dpficit. The executive Order, titled "An Agenda for Austerity", recom mended $7,471,860 be 'cut differentially from institutions of higher education. Had the executive order "been approved, CMU's reduction would have been 1.7 per cent, amounting- to $363,389—a cut ' which CMU could handle, according to University officials, WITH THE legislature's 11-0 rejection, Milliken has 30 days to submit a second executive order. Arthur Ellis, CMU vice president for public affairs, projected last week the legislature would reject the; order and the appropriations committees would "try to push ours (reduction) up artd others down." Ellis added he expected CMU's final cut would be about 2 per cent*. According to The Assoicated Prof charges VP Ellis of bill by HOLLY HAYES > LIFE Ass't.

Ellis, vice president of public. affairs, "sabotaged" the AMCF- sponsored legislation. ELLIS SAID,**! don't agree the amendment is against the wishes of CMU. It might not be in the interest of a select few, but it is in the interest of the seven,. schools I represented on this issue." Ellis "was spokesperson on the retirement issue in Lansing for Eastern Michigan University, Western' Michigan University, Michigan Technological Institute, -Lake Superior State College. Ferris State College . and Northern Michigan University as well as 'CMU. However, Nichols said he didn't think Ellis was acting in the schools' interest because "six of,those seven schools Ellis is supposedly representing passed resolutions which, in substance, were the same as one passed by CMU's Academic Senate in March." The resolution supported the original language in the bill, SB 797/ "What it comes down to," Nichols added, "is who pays Ellis' salary—CMU or the other schools?"

The legislature is expected to seed its recommendations* on what should be in the second order to! the governor early next week. Democrats argue- 'Milliken overestimated the state's projected" deficit when he pegged it at $298 million. They hope to' trim the budget-cutting to between $80 million and $90 million instead of $150 million, easing the blow to welfare and education. ' In addition to the budget cuts** Milliken wants to make up the $298, million by eliminating two restricted funds and. shifting the fiscal year. The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday approved a bill, changing the start of the fiscal year from July 1 to Oct. 1 as Milliken recommended, and the bill now goes to the full Senate. UNDER THE budget cutting process,, the House and Senate appropriations committees have to approve such an order for it to take effect, so the Senate Appropriation Committee's action was all that was needed to kill the executive order.
