ASUN resolution backs
The ASUN Senate voted Wednesday
to support a state income tax increase
and passed a bill that directs the UNL
Publications Board to examine Daily
Nebraskan campus coverage.
The resolution supporting income
tax said increased revenue will lessen
the severity of NU budget cuts. The
resolution said ASUN "is in support of
Gov. Kerrey in his call for an increase of
1 percent in the state's income tax."
Sen. Liz Burden said she thinks the
only revenue-raising the state senators
would consider is an increase in the
income tax. She said the income tax is
an equitable form of revenue-raising.
Sen. Jon Stick said ASUN should

By Diana Johnson
A proposed amendment to NU's bud
get reduction bill would repeal $5 mil
lion allocated to the Lied Center for
Performing Arts if passed by the Legis
lature next week.
In legislative action Wednesday, Sen.
Rex Haberman of Imperial proposed an
amendment to the budget reduction
bill to repeal the Legislature's appro
priation of $5 million to the Lied
Haberman proposed the amendment
while the budget bill was in its final
reading for a specific reason, he said.
"All the hulabaloo has already been
passed concerning the cigarette tax
and sales tax," he said, "by introducing
this now, it will receive more atten
tion." Haberman said he expects heated
discussion when the final reading of
the bill is given to legislators next
Monday or Tuesday.
Money appropriated by the legisla
ture will match $10 million from the NU
Foundation. Those funds will contrib

5-cent cigarette levy
By Kent Endacott
A bill to raise the state cigarette tax
5 cents fell one vote short of advancing
to final round in the Legislature Thurs
day. Twenty-four senators voted for the
bill, and 14 voted against it. Twenty
five votes are needed to advance a bill
to the final round.
The roll-call vote came after Sen.
Dave Landis of Lincoln proposed that
the law take effect Dec. 10 10 days
earlier than the bill's original date.
Landis said the amendment would

Greeks don't take sides.
The bill is not intended to be nega

Sen. Kim Kyles said she thinks peo
ple who are active in campus groups
think their events should be covered so
other students know what their groups
are doing. The bill asks the publica
tions board to look at the DN and see if
it fulfills student needs, Kyles said.
Arneson said ASUN isn't trying to
take over the DN. It is bringing a prob
lem to light, he said.
He said the DN does not adequately
represent campus thinking. Instead of
working to promote the university,
Arneson said, it seems that the DN
singles out campus groups. Arneson
