(Studio) Govs. at National Conf. say federal government takes too much of their money. Found it awkward to argue about proposed 75% cut in federal construction work.
REPORTER: David Brinkley

(Colorado Springs, Colorado) Govs. shocked. [Pennsylvania Governor Raymond SHAFER - says cutback to affect all states.] [Colorado Governor John LOVE - says cut to affect building programs.] [Unidentified GOV. - says good health of our economy depends on ntl. economy] [2nd GOV. - says cut drastic measure.] [3rd GOV. - says came as surprise, but inflation worst prospect.] [4th GOV. - says disappointed in report] [5th GOV. - says most feel like been given dose of castor oil.] Econ, advisor Dr. Arthur Burns wants whole program cut out.
REPORTER: Douglas Kiker

(Chicago, Illinois) Work on Federal Building not threatened now by cut. Work stopped in 1968 by LBJ cut. 2/3 of bill for Mass Transit funded by government; not expected to be hit by cut. Don't expect effect on public housing, since order affects heavy construction.
