"The statement signed by Flem-

By SAM DAMREN
Two bills designed to curb
college disruptions and establish

publications were introduced Wed-

by Sen. Harvey Lodge (R-Water-

However, other legislators say
the bills are not likely to become
law.
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) explained the Lodge bills
