Houghton Meeting
It has been speculated that of-
ficials from the University and
other state colleges and univer-
sites decided at a meeting in
Houghton last month to challenger
the constitutionality of PA 240.
Some Lansing observers feel that
the law is an infringement on the
autonomy of the University as
granted in the state Constitution.
As yet, no formal action has
been filed against the law.
Section 8 of PA 240 was found
most objectionable by the Assem-
bly. It prohibits establishment of
new programs or expansion of ex-
