North Carolina's Medicaid program and other
state-funded programs may undergo major reduc
tions as a result of recently proposed legislation.
The legislation, which calls for cuts of more
than $29 million in human resources spending in
the state, is designed to anticipate federal cutback
in state funds.
The state legislative budget panel's recommended
cuts amount to 5.4 percent of human resources
spending in 1931-82 and 8 percent in 1982-83.
A spokesman for the Office of Management
and Dudget, David Nexon, said the effects that
national budget cuts would have on North Carolina
depended upon the growth of the state.
The federal budget only allows for a 5 percent
growth rate, Nexon said, and if the state's total
funding for Medicaid grows faster than 5 percent
in 1931-82, it would be affected by the national
budget cuts. 'lf the state doesn't grow, it won't
be hurt," he said.
North Carolina's projected rate of growth for
1931-82 is between 15 and 20 percent, said Barbara
Matula, a spokesman for the Division of Medical
Assistance. This expected rate of growth is well
above the federal budget's 5 percent allowance.
According to the report of the state's Joint
Appropriations Comniission on Human Resources,
the cuts are recommended only if federal funds
"Contingency reductions in the Medicaid pro
gram are for consideration if federal funds are
cut off due to a 5 percent cap," the report said.
June Milby, information officer for the North
Carolina Department of Human Resources, said
the cuts were listed in order of priority instead of
by category. This means that certain cuts, such as
the elimination of coverage for the medically
needy, .are placed at the bottom of the list the
last programs to be cut.
Some of the first priorities include the elimina
tion of administrative and staff positions at many
state and federal agencies.
Also included are the phasing out of state sup
port to the Confederate Women's Home in
Fayetteville, McCain Hospital in Hoke County,
the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center in Butner,
Samarkand Manor Training School in Moore
County and the Oxford Orphanage.
"We have a pretty good idea of how much
money we're going to lose," Matula said.
She said that in 1982 spending for the Medicaid
program in North Carolina would have to be cut
back $58 million because of the decrease in federal
funds. The federal government presently matches
68 cents for every state dollar spent on Medicaid.
Jim Johnson, a fiscal analyst who helped write
the recommendation, said there was a lot of un
certainty in Washington about the Medicaid issue.
"It will take some time to reach a decision," he
Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C, has been in basic
agreement with Reagan's proposed budget cuts'
and has advocated that even more cuts may. be
"Ironically, some citizens have concluded that
.the president may not be proposing enough re
ductions. They may be right; in fact I am inclined
to believe they are," Helms said.
Sen. John East, R-N.C, is generally supportive
of the overall budget.
Brent Hackney, a spokesman for Gov. Jim
Hunt, said Hunt was satisfied that the budget he
sent to the General Assembly earlier this year
; would adequately cover any federal reductions.
"He (Hunt) does not feel like additional cuts
are necessary," Hackney said. Hunt's budget
cuts only include cuts in administrative personnel,
and Hackney estimated that the recommended
state cuts were about $200 million more than
Hunt's proposed reductions.
Although Hunt supported Reagan's efforts to
balance the budget, he testified before a con
gressional subcommittee in March that giving the
states more flexibility would result in cost savings
twice the amount proposed by the Reagan ad
ministration. Hunt, who is opposed to cuts in education,
child care and nutrition, expressed his concern
over the Reagan administration approach to "ar
bitrarily and drastically limiting the amount of
federal dollars supporting this program."
Other recommendations made by the panel in
cluded freezing the rate at which health care pro
viders are being reimbursed for services to needy
patients, cutting back reimbursement to patients
for drugs and eliminating Medicaid coverage for
18- to 21 -year-olds under the Aid to Families.with
Dependent Children program.
Other recommended funding cuts would re
strict dental services covered by Medicaid and
limit hospital stays. -

m ktezngmn triumph
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON The Senate handed President Ronald
Reagan the biggest legislative triumph of his young administra
tion Thursday night, voting overwhelming approval of a plan
to force $87 billion in budget cuts over the next three years.
The bill, attacked by outnumbered liberals as a desertion of
the nation's needy but hailed by Republicans and most Demo
crats as a historic turning point in the battle to control spending,
passed on a vote of 88-10.
"This is a first and major installment in fiscal responsibility,"
Budget Committee Chairman Pete Domenici, R-N.M., said of
the measure, which calls for savings of $2.3 billion this year,'
$36.9 billion in 1982 and $47.7 billion in 1983.
The bill follows Reagan's own proposals for cuts virtually
dollar-for-dollar. Its passage came with unusual swiftness, less
than a month after ths president delivered his final recommen
dations" to Congress on March 107:' ' '-' " v-r-' ': f-.v-
But in addition to being a triumph for the president, the
measure represented an achievement for the Republicans, who
used their new majority in the Senate to reject more than two
dozen Democratic attempts to restore cuts in their favorite
Shortly before the final vote, Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif
blasted the package, with deep cuts in social programs such as
jobless, food stamp and education benefits, as "cruel aban
donment" of the nation's needy.
Complaining about "hardened Republican hearts," he said,
"Republican rigidity won the day. But the Republican victory
may be a costly victory for the nation."
The measure, which orders congressional committees to make
the cuts in programs under their control, now goes to the House,
where Domenici virtually challenged majority Democrats to
follow suit. "I think the U.S. House will have to respond not
only with quick action ... but I think they will also have to take
a look at the size."
. The Senate took its action as one key House Republican said,
"We have an opportunity to win" in the House, too, despite
the Democratic majority.

If you haven't gotten a summer job yet, you
may net find one in Chapel Hill.
The summer job market in Chspcl Hill is
tight. "If you haven't started looking by now
it's going to take a lot of energy and a lot of
initiative to ret a job at this point particularly
one that wiil give you career experience," said
Ruth Bernstein, director of the Prc-Carccr Ex
perience Program at the University Counseling
Most epplication deadlines for summer jobs
offering career experience come before March,

What all this means for the ambitious student

one or the other.

fewer summer jobs for students, Bernstein said.
The Department of Health and Human Services,
which usually hires the largest number of sum
mer employees, will not be hiring this summer.
On the other hand, the Department of De
fense is hiring, Bernstein said. The Department
of the Army at the Research Triangle Park
offered three summer internships this year.
Because Chapel Hill's population dwindles in
the summer, demand for workers also drops
off, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director
Bill Hearn said. But, a large number of semi
nars, basketball camps and the like keep busi
ness from dwindling, said SheUon Henderson,
owner of the Shrunken Head Boutique on
Franklin Street. j
Adding a more optimistic note, Hearn said
some jobs might open when students leave for
Another possibility is that employers might
cut back on permanent workers to hire cheaper
temporary summer employees. Students can
offer creative and energetic work for a lower
wage, Bernstein saidi
Laney and Bernstein advised students still
looking for work to check with major businesses
in the area and the Employment Security Com
mission. The newspaper is a good source for
finding jobs that pay well, said Berstein.

The Student Affairs and Rules and Judiciary com
mittees of the Campus Governing Council issued to
the Finance (Lommlttee Thursday their qualitative
evaluation of the programs for which different
organizations have requested funding after a week
of reviewing the programs.
The report, which ranks and com
ments on each of the group's programs,
will be used during the next three weeks
by the Finance Committee in determin
ing a recommended allocation for each
Top priority in the ranking was given
to programs the subcommittees deter
mined would reach the greatest number
programs viewed by the subcom
. mittees as educating students to services
offered on campus.
"I think the common Carolina stu
'dent would evaluate the programs the
same way the subcommittees did," said
CGC Speaker ElChino Martin. "Be
cause the Council is all new they have
no biases toward any organizations."
Because of this, Martin said he felt the
report was a fair evaluation.
Along with reaching a broad range
of students, the programs ranked of
highest priority were programs consid
ered essential to the campus. Those
programs are the Election Board, the
Media Board, WXYC, the Judicial
Branch and several publications that
are considered to reach a broad group of students.
SHE magazine, and Women 's Resource Handbook,
Black Ink, The Franklin Street Gourmet, The South
ern Part of Heaven, the Carolina Gay Association's
Orientation Brochure, the Residence Hall Associa
iion Newsletter, the Rape and Assault Prevention
Escort service pamphlet and The Phoenix all fall
under this ranking.
About The Phoenix, the newest campus publica
tion. Rules and Judiciary Chairperson Donald Munro
said, "It is a high caliber publication dedicated to
in-depth investigative reporting on issues not covered
in existing UNC publications.' i
Other publications such as the Yackety Yack,
Cellar Door and the Carolina Quarterly ranked
somewhat lower because they have alternative means
to acquire funds, according to the report. The sub--committees
also took into consideration that although
these publications involve a small group of students
' y ; they bring recognition to the University.
) The Carolina Course Review and Phi
Eta Sigma's course evaluation were
ranked low in the report because of their
perceived limited means of evaluating
courses and instructors.
The Carolina Symposium's speaker
program and the North Carolina Stu
dent Legislation's annual Chapel Hill
session received high rankings because
:cf 'their ' traditions bTaBenand past
records of high attendance.
The programs that the subcommittee
determined had a narrow scope of in
terest among students and tended to
overlap with other organizations' pro
grams were listed as lowest priority, said
David Hopkins of District 4. The Stu
dent Government's National Achieve
ment weekend, the CGA's Spring Cul
tural Event, the Carolina Athletic
Association's publicity for Homecom
ing and RHA Week were on this list.
Receiving this report for the Finance
Committee, Chairperson Mike Vanden
bergh said that it would be valuable in
the areas of highest and lowest ranking.
'The report will help us move quicker
because we don't have to ask as many questions,'
"I am disappointed that some of the evaluations are
not detailed enough. I think a closer evaluation of
some of the programs would have been a greater help
to us," he said, but added, "Overall, 1 think the
report fulfilled its functions."
Tom Morris, chairperson of the Student Affairs
Committee, said he felt the ranking was consistent
throughout the three subcommittees that reviewed
the organizations programs.
