The Regents yesterday also of a negative checkoff where only

the money would fill out the form.
In addition, PIRGIM and ad-'
ministrators developed criteria by
which the Regents could decide
whether to act as the fund-raising
mechanism for an organization.
The group would have to show
petitions of a majority of the stu-
dents on campus. PIRGIM has
done this with 16,000 signatures
having been collected.
In addition, the group would
also have to demonstrate "direct'
educational benefits in which all
students at the University have an
opportunity to participate." Writ-
ten endorsements by a "reason-
able" number of deans and de-
partment chairmen would also
have to be included.
Other requirements include re-
imbursement of the University for
administrative costs, a maximum
$2.00 fee be collected each term,
and that the rights of students
who do not wish to participate
in the program be protected.
In addition to the proposals de-'
bated yesterday, a new plan for a
student judiciary and a revised
research plan will be voted upon

land-use agency to eventually have
veto power similar to the water
power agency. But there are too
many obstacles now and a propo-
sal like that couldn't get through

Smit, however, is going ahead
with his bill. He already is re-
ceiving opposition to his proposal.
"The farmer or forest land own-
er wants his tax lowered but is
unwilling to have state restraint
on his ability to resell for a profit
when the right developer comes
along," he said.
Smit expects opposition to the
measure to come not by party
lines but rather by ideology.
"I expect the battle will be
liberal versus conservative, as is
the case of many conservation
bills," he said.
