Budget slashed
for educators
United Press International
AUSTIN — The State Board
of Education, lamenting that re
cent slashes in revenue estimates
would make teacher pay raises
impossible, voted Saturday to
trim its 1984-1985 budget re
quest by about $1 billion.
The board’s action was in re
sponse to Comptroller Bob Bul
lock’s announcement last week
that the state would have nearly
$3 billion less to spend on the
biennial budget than was antici
pated last fall.
Board members had asked
the Legislature for a two-year
budget of $14.3 billion, but re
duced its request by about $1
billion Saturday.
The original request was for
an increase of just more than $2
billion over the previous bien
nial budget, but Chairman Joe
Kelly Butler said it now
appeared only $920 million in
new money would be available.
“Unless a new tax is pas*

told the board.

would take up the entire
