• In February, Gov. Jennifer
Granholm appointed State Sen. Liz
Brater, D-Ann Arbor, to the bipartisan
Michigan Land Use Council. The
council will study and identify trends,
causes and consequences of urban
sprawl and provide recommendations
to the governor and the legislature for
minimizing the impact of current land
use trends. Besides introducing a num-
ber of bills related to environmental
protection, she introduced a bill that
would establish a violation of the
Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act for fail-
ing or refusing to provide equal com-
pensation for comparable work.

The Charity Aid, Recover and
Empowerment (CARE) Act passed
the Senate 95-5 on
April 9. The Act
includes two key pro-
visions for the Jewish
community.
The first relates to
the Social Services
Block Grant (SSBG),
which supports cru-
cial community-based
initiatives like adult
day care and Meals
on Wheels. The
CARE bill would
restore SSBG funding
to its 1995 level of
$2.8 billion over 2
Above:
years.
U.S. Senators
Secondly, the
Carl Levin
CARE bill allows for
and Debbie
IRA charitable
Stabenow
rollovers, which
would allow individ-
uals to donate their
IRA assets to charita-
ble organizations without those funds
being subject to income tax. Both
Michigan senators, Carl Levin and
Debbie Stabenow, voted in favor of
the measure. As Jewish agencies face
budget cuts, these two provisions
would provide a significant help to
vulnerable populations.
The focus now shifts to the House
where the legislation will be intro-
duced sometime after the break.
