Budget cuts shrink
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Michigan's safety net for the needy
is collapsing under the strain im-
posed by draconian budget cuts, a
state legislative leader told a con-
gressional panel yesterday.
State Rep. David Hollister (D-
Lansing) painted a gloomy picture
of a state ravaged by economic woes
but unwilling to raise taxes to
avoid cutbacks in aid to the sick and
The recently-adopted state bud-
get "is a major retreat in the social
contract," Hollister said, testifying
before the House Energy and
Commerce Subcommittee on
Oversight and Investigations.
"Michigan is now leading the re-
treat," Hollister said. "Michigan
was once at the forefront of
Medicaid policy and social policy
(but) is now behind Mississippi,
Arkansas, Louisiana... Our human
service network is on the breaking
point. Ten years of retrenchment,
waiting lists, overburdened staff,
lost federal dollars. It has col-
Hollister, chairman of the ap-
propriations subcommittee of the
state House Committee on Social
Services, was among witnesses at a
hearing on how state and local gov-
ernments are coping with problems
in the Medicaid program.
U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D-
Trenton) and chairperson of the
congressional panel, said the pro-
gram was "crippled."
Among the causes, he said, are
economic deterioration, increasing
numbers of poor and uninsured peo-
ple, Congress's orders to make more
people eligible, soaring costs of
high-tech treatments and the threat
of malpractice suits.
"We have failed to accept the
limits wealready face and those
that will inevitably worsen in years
to come," Dingell said.
The body of Roger LaFontant, former leader of Haiti's notorious Tonton Macoutes, lies in the morgue in Port-Au-Prince yesterday. LaFontant was
killed Sunday in his prison cell by a soldier during the military coup that ousted the nation's civilian government.

requested Kelley's opinion when a
student who grew up in his district
couldn't get in-state residence sta-
tus at Michigan State University.
The applicant's parents had di-
vorced, and his official residence
was listed as the out-of-state ad-
dress where his father lived.
The student was denied Michigan
residency because he attended classes
full time, rather than working full
time and attending school part time.

"For all kinds of reasons, I think
that people who are Hispanic who
are interested in becoming faculty at
Michigan Law School and at other
Law Schools ... have not done these
things, but they've done other
things," he said.
"I think the University is being
receptive to other methods of ana-
lyzing potential professors," Tor-
res said. "The University is very
aware of the problem."
Bollinger and the law students
agreed that a lack of Hispanic pro-
fessors is detrimental to the climate
for Hispanic students and hurts
"I've been told (by Hispanic
students) that it makes the school a
less congenial place," Bollinger #
said. "There's more of a sense qf

someone with a similar background
doing something, it seems more post
sible," he said.
Other students in the law school
agreed that the lack of Hispanic fac-
ulty was a bad situation.
"I guess it does bother me," said
first-year law student Tom Cornett.
"If we're trying to include all mi-
norities in the student body, we
should have some people represent-
ing these minorities on the faculty,"
"But I wouldn't condemn the
University too highly ... they are
trying," he added.
