Transcript Budget troubles forced Gov. Mark White to call for a series of cuts in the spring of '86. As if to blame White for the crisis, Texas voters elected Bill Clements Governor in November. Clements said he will raise the education budget to $671 million, its 1985 level. Stormy Seas Ahead For UH UH officials say the university will have to dig deeper into savings to come up with an extra $2.2 million to meet a tentative 10.5 percent cut proposed by the state legislature. The legislature agreed to cut $510 million from higher education, a figure that translates to a loss of about $8.2 million for UH, said Peter Fitzgerald, vice president for administration. A plan has already been drawn up to take care of about $6 million in cuts, but more reductions will have to be made to reach the $8.2 million level, Fitzgerald said. The presidents at each component of the UH System will be holding meetings to determine methods for making budgets meet the legislature's figures. They will report to the Board of Regents, Chairwoman Debbie Hanna said. President Richard Van Horn said the figure is "somewhat more than expected, more than we hoped for." Hanna, however, said she considers the 10.5 percent cut "a victory." "I never thought the day would come when I would consider cuts in the 10 percent range a victory, but now I do," Hanna said. "The university system and its components were facing deep and devastating cuts." Van Horn said the real damage will come in 1988. "In '88 we'll have to cut the programs back the full 10 percent," if it appears that no new funds will come to the university. The House-Senate conference committee voted 9-1 to accept the bill to cut the $2.8 billion state budget, but some "cleanup" work still has to be done. "We already have a plan, but it would be premature to determine how the exact figures will impact us," Fitzgerald, said. UH met Gov. Mark White's call for cuts in Spring 1986 with freezes on hiring and capital expenditures like construction, savings in utilties, travel restrictions and the doubling of parking fees. In addition, campus departments were asked to cut 3 percent from their operating budgets. Van Horn said he expected UH's appropriation to be cut by 9 percent, which is $7.2 million of the original appropriation of $80 million. The Senate originally proposed an overall 7 percent cut of $117.6 million to higher education in Texas. The contrasting House cut was for 18.5 percent, or $320.3 million. UH's $80 million share of the appropriation would have been cut by $6 million under the Senate proposal and by $16 million under the House proposal. — Kristin Jacobsen li
