Headlines

July 09, 1985

After slashing more than $1.7 billion in proposed legislation before my Assembly Ways and Means Committee, I was infuriated to pick up The Times (June 26) and read the headline: "Assembly Panel Goes on 2-Hour Spending Spree."

In those two hours we approved about $160 million in legislation--less than 10% of the amount sought by various legislators. Now think about it--how does "Assembly Panel Goes on $1.7-Billion Slashing Spree" sound? Catchy and accurate.

Picky? Maybe. But a magnifying glass has two sides.

I wish you well.
