The State of Michigan's
$100,000 appropriation for the
Holocaust Memorial Center was
approved by a House-Senate con-
ference committee and was ex-
pected to be approved routinely
this week as part of the 1986-1987
State Senator Jack Faxon (D-
Farmington Hills) credits the
doubling of funds to the incident
last month when Sen. Gilbert
DiNello (D-East Detroit) argued
against the funding by claiming
that the Jewish community was
wealthy enough to fund the HMC.
Publicity over that incident and
DiNello's public apology is cre-
dited by Faxon with giving the
HMC the new appropriation,
which is double previous figures.
"Nobody wanted to play with that
figure now," Faxon told The
Jewish News, "and we are in posi-
tion to keep the funding at that
level in future years."
The HMC plans to use the funds
as part of its general operating
budget. More than 80 percent of
its visitors in its first year were
public school groups.
