In 1981 and again in 1983, PIRGIM
proposed the reinstatement of the
refusable/refundable assessment for
all students that had been in effect from
1974 through 1978.

tuition payment unless he or she

5,000 student signatures in support of
the organization in 1983, anothe group,
SWRAP, the Student Committee for
Perform and Progress gathered almost
7,000 signatures asking the regents to
take PIRGIM off the form.
THE REGENTS voted against both
proposals at their March, 1983 meeting,
but allowed PIRGIM to continue under
the current system.
At that meeting, regents Thomas
Roach (D-Detroit) and Deane Baker
(R-Ann Arbor) voted to discontinue the
contract, and Nellie Varner (D-
Detroit), who voted to renew it, warned
PIRGIM that if it did not succeed in
gaining more student support by the
next renewal, she would not support the

contributed. Fall Term 1984 marked an

Horovitz said that the committee will
make a recommendation that will be
very different from the
refusable/refundable assessment that
they sought a few years ago.
But Kristen Haas, PIRGIM's coor-
dinator, said "We don't want to be off
the SVF necessarily." She speculated
that new proposals may include a
PIRGIM station at CRISP, integrating
the group into the registration process.
Another alternative, she said, is to
solicit support directly through the
mail. Along with his bills, each student
would receive information about
PIRGIM and the opportunity to donate.
This week PIRGIM will conduct
a campus-wide petition drive to collect
signatures in support of its request for a
one year extension. PIRGIM members
said they expect to gather about 2,000
student signatures, although the
petitions aren't necessary to obtain the
