Assembly slashes per term fee

by Christine Kloostra
Daily Staff Reporter
Students may be worried about
informing their parents of the new
tuition increases, but they will be
able to tell them the student fee for
the Michigan Student Assembly has
gone down by 5C cents.
The University Board of Regents
unanimously supported a proposal
to reduce the fee - which funds the
assembly, Student Legal Services
(SLS), and the Ann Arbor Tenants
Union (AATU) - from $6.77 to
$6.27.
"This has been an extraordinary
group of young people who have
looked hard at the needs of the stu-
dent body," said Regent Deane Baker
(R-Ann Arbor), adding that he be-
lieves the assembly represents a
strong level of support from stu-
dents on campus for the first time in
many years.
The fee decrease was requested by

MSA's executive officers, members
of the Conservative Coalition, pri-
marily because the loan MSA took
out to cover a $60,000 deficit two
years ago has been paid. The student
fee had been $6.27 prior to the loan.
"We are very pleased that the re-
gents saw fit to pass what we pro-
posed," MSA President James
Green said.
The decrease will result in a
49.34 percent reduction in AATU's
budget. AATU lobbies on behalf of
tenants, provides counseling to stu-
dents with landlord problems, and
publishes information on tenant is-
sues such as subletting, and tenants'
rights.
Cutback supporters claim that
the tenants' union does not keep ac-
curate financial records and does not
devote adequate time to student
counseling.
"It's clear AATU is not spend-

ing student money responsibly,"
MSA Rep. Jeff Muir said.
Amy Polk, an MSA Rep. and a
former volunteer at AATU, ex-
plained that the time spent outside
'This has been an
extraordinary group
of young people who
have looked hard at
the needs of the
student body'
- Regent Deane Baker
of counseling is devoted to training,
creating handbooks, and working for
state and local legislation to pro-
tect tenants.
Opponents of the proposal be-
lieve the reduction will severely
harm AATU and the services it of-

fers to students.
"The tenants' union is one of the
positive lights... it reflects back pos-
itively on the University," said Bob
Gillette, director of Southeastern
Legal Services.
AATU offers 20 hours of open
counseling per week as well as by
appointment. Last year the union's
budget was $48,484 -85 percent of
which paid the salaries of AATU's
two full-time and five work-study
employees. The new budget reduces
the personnel funding in half.
The budget will also reduce the
funding for Student Legal Services
by 3.31 percent and for the assembly
The assembly's budget includes a
$5,000 increase to student groups
and a full-time bookkeeper to over-
see MSA, SLS and the tenants'
union. This position was mandated
by the regents following an audit of
MSA.

This is it. The 1991 lineup of Suzuki cars and 2-and 4-wheel-
drive sport/utility vehicles. The most affordable and fuel-
efficient lineup money can buy. And maybe the most fun to
drive. But that's something you'll have to decide for your-
self. And the only way to do that is go drive one. TODAY.
