ness of each school," he said, adding
that the process is currently subject to
political considerations. .
House members await recounts of
several tight GOP victories - all with
a margin of victory of fewer than 300
votes - to determine which party will
control the body.
One key tabulation is in the 29th
District, where it appears that Demo-
cratic incumbent Dennis Olshove (D-
Warren) - who lost to Republican
John Chmura in the first unofficial re-
turns -actually won by six votes.
Mary Kotowaski of the Macomb
County Elections Bureau said official
totalson thatrace will be certified by the
county board of canvassers today.
But election officials say final certi-
ficationsbythe StateBoardofCanvass-
ers for races being recounted will not be
settled until early December.
If neither party musters 56 votes,
there is a possibility of co-speakers,
which happened in Indiana during the
1989-90 session.
ButDemocrats will attempt to elimi-
nate this possibility today when they
propose arule change that-in the case
ofa tie-wouldrevert House control to
the leadership of the last session.
A 55-55 split would signify the first
powerdeadlockinthe House since 1966.
Nancy Taylor, director of the Re-
publicanpresssection,saidthatalthough
the actual structure is uncertain in the
case ofatie, the Republican party would

maintain a "working majority" on im-
portant issues.
'There is common interest on com-
mon issues," she said. "Action has only
been stymied by the Democratic leader-
ship."
Meanwhile, the Republican-con-
trolled state Senate is so mesmerized by
the fight for control in the House that it
has taken little action since the election.
"We almost have been relegated as
spectators," said Senate Majority Floor
Leader Phil Arthurhultz.
"We are in recess until Dec. 3 and
'The governor has been
relatively quiet about
higher education policy.
It's hard to speculate on
the kinds of policy
change he has in mind
with a so-called
'conservative majority.'
- Rep. James Kosteva
(D-Canton)
hopefully at that time we will have a
better sense of what recounts will pro-
duce in the House."
He said that if the Republicans are
shown to have a majority, the Senate
will recess to avoid compromising with
a Democratic House. If it is a tie, he said
there is a possibility of negotiations
taking place before next year.

Clinton discusses
strategy with
Congress Demsj

IITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP)-Presi-
dent-elect Clinton and Democratic con-
gressional leaders promised a "new era"
of action yesterday, and said creating
jobs and restoring America's economic
power would be their top priorities.
"I will be in a hurry," Clinton said at
a joint news conference with Demo-
cratic lawmakers.
"Gridlock is over and cooperation
and teamwork have begun," said House
Majority Leader Richard iephardt (D-
Missouri).
Clinton declared an end to "the Cold
War between the Congress and the
WhiteHouse"andpromised, "Pennsyl-
vania Avenue willrinbothwaysagain."
"I can't say for sure which will and
what won't pass within 100 days," he
said. "I'll just work as hard as I can and
Sget as much done as quickly as I can."'
Clinton said that during his first
meeting with congressional leaders all
hands agreed that "creating jobs, rais-
ing incomes, getting our economy mov-
ing again, and the long-term competi-
tive strength of the American economy"
was the number one objective.
Democratic leaders share his com-
mitment, Clinton said, to health care
reform and bringing down the deficit.
Those attending Sunday's session
included Gephardt, House SpeakerTom
Foley and Senate Majority Leader
George Mitchell, Vice President-elect
Al Gore and Clinton's wife Hillary.
"Our dinner marks a new era of
cooperation and action in our nation's

capital," Clinton's wife, Hillary said.
The President-elect has said in the
past that ashort-termjobs package might
come first on his priority list to get
through Congress.
Yesterday, he sought to downplay
expectations for what would emerge
from Congress in his first 100 days,
saying he expected to forward propos-
als on thorny issues such as health care
to Capitol Hill promptly but not neces-
sarily see them enacted immediately.
Clinton brushed off speculation that
Republicans would try to tie his hands,
and said the scope of America's prob-
lems would be his biggest hurdle. He
'Gridlock is over and
cooperation and
teamwork have begun.'
- Richard Gephardt
House majority leader
(0-Missouri)
cited the "mammoth complexity" of
health care as one of the huge chal-
lenges ahead.
"I think the problems are likely to
give us far more difficulty than the
personalities," he said.
In a wide-ranging new conference,
Clinton also:
Said that despite the deficit, he'd
make good on his campaign pledge of
tax breaks for the middle class.
Reiterated his intention to lift the
ban on homosexuals in the military

news conference at the Old State H ouse
despite opposition from military lead-
ers and Sen. Sam Nunn, a Georgiar
Democrat who chairs the Senate Arned
Services Committee. Clinton said anew
he would consult with opponents in
working out the details of his policy.
Nunn is said to be under consider-
ation for secretary of defense and Cli Ilon
said his disagreement with Nunn on the
issue wouldn't hurt the senator's Cabi-
net prospects.
"One of the things that has gotten+
presidents in trouble in the past, big
time, is having people around them who
were afraid to disagree with them, even
in private," Clinton said.

posal for a compromise on line-item

The administrators are respon-

The faculty must be actively
involved with administrators on deci-
sions that shape university policy.
The task force was formedlastspring
to enhance the relationship between
faculty and administrators at the univer-
sity.
Thorson said the Task Force looked

Members of the Senate Assembly

Knott, chair of the task force, said the
proposal will also be on the agenda for

der Foley's proposal, a presidential
veto of a specific spending item could
be overridden by a majority of law-
makers.
Said there are several options
available to deal with the strife in the
former Yugoslavia, "short of sending
troops in."

cut its size while the White House staff
"expkled."

promised the council she would di
vulge more details later this week.
"I've never even seen the lan-
guage," Zimmer said. "Here we are
being called upon to vote on some-
thing we don't know the details of
let alone the implications. I don't
think we should be passing it with=
out overseeing it."
Brater disagreed, saying, "I think
the information is substantially in
place."
Councilmember Larry Hunter (D-
1st Ward) had some question about
final parking provisions.
"Some details have to be worked
out," he said. "We could have a spe=
cial session when the mayor shows
the Borders agreement to us."
The five-year agreement will take
effect Nov. 1, 1993.
Borders, founded in Ann Arbor
about 20 years ago, is now a national
chain. The new location would serve
as the company's national training
facility.
In other business, the council also
decided, 7-4, to consider buying new
voting machines.
The resolution's text complains
of the old voting machines, citing
the difficulty of maintaining them
and the fact that they have caused
periodic voting problems in recent
years.
