Since the regents couldn't pass the code
proposal over the summer when they do
everything else controversial, they tried to have
their discussion of the issue in faraway Flint.

Hail! Hail to Michigan... but only if you live in the
state. The U-M's residency requirements make
life difficult for out-of-state applicants.

Michigan hits the road for the first time since the

Bloominton, Ind., to take on the Hoosiers on the

Regents delay action on code implementation

FLINT - University President
James Duderstadt decided against
implementing the Statement of
Student Rights and Responsibilities
after a heated discussion at the U-M
Board of Regents October meeting
in Flint yesterday.
The policy was brought up only
as a point of information to the re-
gents - not a voting item. However,
under Regental Bylaw 2.01, which
gives the U-M President the power
to unilaterally enact policy,

FLINT - The U-M Board of
Regents met with an attorney yes-
terday morning to devise a way to
select a new chancellor for the uni-
versity's Dearborn campus without
violating the Michigan Open
Meetings Act.
At the regents' meeting yesterday
afternoon, Regent Paul Brown (D-
Petoskey) said, "We asked our coun-

of Appeals ruled in favor of the two

A caucus among the eight-mem-
ber board regarding the proposal's
acceptability was split along party
lines, with the four republicans re-
questing to wait to put the code into
effect until everyone has more time
to review the policy.
Rob Van Houweling, Michigan
Student Assembly's Student Rights
Commission chair, addressed the
board during the public comment
session with concern that the ac-
cused have the right to legal counsel.
"The code gives you the right to
remain silent, but without legal
counsel, that does you no good," he

Van Houweling also said that if a
person who is accused of a violent
crime has to cross-examine the ac-
cuser, the jury could be biased if the
defendant asks rough questions.
He said the issue of fairness is
called to question when an accuser
has a third party make the complaint
for them if the defendant is not al-
lowed the same privilege.
Regent Neal Nielsen (R-
Brighton) spoke in favor of repre-
sentation. "I don't think we have an

Board approves state budget request

by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily Administration Reporter
FLINT - The Board of Regents unanimously ap-
proved the U-M's proposed State Budget Request, a
$25.3 million increase in state budget appropriations, to
fund salary and financial aid increases, at yesterday's
However administrators and regents are skeptical this
request will be granted.
"I think we recognize quite clearly the serious finan-

cial pressures on Michigan," said U-M President James
Duderstadt. "State support has deteriorated markedly
over the past five years and the year ahead may not be a
very good year."
This year's request asks for a total increase of $25,3
million more than the $293 million appropriated last year
and includes: a $7.9 million inflation component, $8.2
million for critical needs for salary and academic pro-
gram improvement and $9.2 million for facilities related

This will be the Arkansas governor's first
visit to Ann Arbor during this campaign. Mrs.

stalking bills
by Michelle VanOoteghem
The state Legislature will soon
vote on a package that would make
stalking a crime in Michigan.
The four proposed bills are cur-
rently in limbo because the Legisla-
ture is adjourned until after the
November elections.
Twenty-eight states have enacted
anti-stalking legislation. Michigan's
proposed law is one of the most
comprehensive packages in the na-
tion, said state Rep. Perry Bullard
(D-Ann Arbor).
"I think we've got a very strong
package," said Bullard, chair of the
House Judiciary Committee. "We
have a carefully drafted definition of
stalking that is more likely to be
found constitutional than other
state's laws."
It will create two different defini-
tions of stalking, one a misdemeanor
and the other a felony for aggravated
Stalking will be defined as ha-
rassment that causes significant
mental suffering or distress to the
victim, such as repeatedly harassing
somebody over the telephone or
repeatedly following somebody.
