SPEAKER
Continued from page 1
requires 56 votes to overturn. This
provision was included to prevent
one party from taking control mid-
way through the session due to ex-
tended absences.
Under the proposed agreement,
Hillegonds will assume the speak-
er's chair this month. All commit-
tees will be chaired by members of
the party opposite ofthe speaker.
The committees will be split
evenly, however a majority will
still be required to report a bill out
of committee. Both parties will be
able to report a bill out of commit-
tee after tie votes with a privilege
called an "extraordinary vote" 12
times a year and five times on
House-Senate conferences.
With the "extraordinary vote"
measure, Republicans are virtually
guaranteed consideration of the
Engler legislative package. After
legislation has been reported out of
committee, the Republican speaker
could simply schedule it for action
the next month.
House Republicans said they
expect fast-track legislation on
auto-insurance reform, crime pre-
vention, abortion, arts and Detroit
Symphony Orchestra courts and
property-tax reform.

House Democrats lamented the
pact, but conceded they had little
choice. "It's 55-55. You have to
come up with a solution to the
problem, and this is the solution:
shared"power," said long-time
House Appropriations chair
Dominic Jacobetti (D-Negaunee).
The measure, while guarantee-
ing that House Democrats would
not lose staff or budget, allows the
Republicans "pretty much a free
hand in the consideration of Engler
agenda," said former state House
representative Perry Bullard who
blocked Republican-sponsored leg-
islation throughout his tenure.
Lawrence Reed, president of the
conservative think tank Mackinac
Center, said despite the power shar-
ing arrangement, Republicans will
still have a working "philosophical
majority on many important
issues."
In November's election,
Democrats lost control of the
House for the first time in 24 years.
Republicans currently control the
state Senate and the Governor's
mansion.
Hillegonds said the agreement
was a compromise between power-
sharing arrangements used in
Indiana and Florida.

MSA demands role in director search
LGMPO vacancy prompts call for student participation in hiring process

by Adam Anger
and Jennifer Tianen
Daily MSA Reporters
Citing the need for improved stu-
dent-administration communication,
the Michigan Student Assembly is
requesting to be represented in the
search for a new coordinator for the
Lesbian and Gay Male Programs
Office (LGMPO).
The Michigan Student Assembly
kicked off its first meeting of the
semester by passing a resolution 13-
12 with two abstentions, calling for
improvements of LGMPO through
assembly involvement.
Major points of the resolution,
sponsored by Peace and Justice

Commission Chair Janelle White,
include that:
the Office of Student Affairs
keeps MSA informed of concerns
addressed by Billie Edwards, former
co-coordinator of LGMPO;
the Office of Student Affairs
promptly performs an applicant
search and hiring process to fill the
co-coordinator position; and,
MSA and Billie Edwards per-
form a substantive role in the hiring
process.
In opposition to the resolution,
Engineering senior and Rules and
Elections Vice-Chair Brian Kight
said no resolution will help
LGMPO's situation.

Rackham Rep. Colin Leach sup-
ported the resolution saying the as-
sembly had to take a tough stance
with LGMPO.-
The resolution will be submitted
to the Office of Student Affairs.
Next week's meeting is expected
to include a proposal from the Rules
and Elections Committee regarding
attendance policies.
Although a sufficient policy has
already been established for atten-
dance to regular meetings, there is
little enforcement of committee
attendance.
"If representatives don't put in
the work, MSA doesn't work,"

Kight said. "If we want to represent
students more effectively, we will
have to put in more effort."
The assembly also approved the
proposed election dates, setting the
date for March 17-18.
In other news, Health Issues
Commission Chair Meg Whittaker
reported that the commission is
planning to ask the Michigan Union
eateries to post the nutritional value
of their food such as those of
McDonald's and Burger King.
The School of Music president is
expected to appoint a new represen-
tative for the school, due to the res-
ignation of Representative Lisa
Silver.

SERB
Continued from page 1
"Friendly persuasion" was used
on Karadzic, Cosic's spokesperson
Dragoslav Rancic said.
Karadzic was under pressure
from Bosnian Serb hard-liners not to
accept anything that would perma-
nently 'exclude their right to
self-determination.
"This is a very s.nportant and es-
sential step toward peace," said
Milosevic, who was at the Geneva
talks for the first time. "The basic
principles have been accepted by all

delegations."
Disputes remain between the
Bosnian Serbs and the Muslim-led
government over provincial bound-
aries and the withdrawal of Serb
heavy weapons from around the be-
sieged capital of Sarajevo and other
strategic points.
Earlier yesterday, the talks
verged on collapse after the media-
tors said Karadzic held out for a
Bosnian Serb state. A meeting of all
warring parties recessed without
agreement and Owen, the European
Community's envoy, spoke of a
breakdown.

When women begin the
PanHellenic Association's first or-
ganized winter rush 11.nAt
Wednesday, in addition to donning
dresses and high heels, rushees may
also need a pair of long underwear
and earmuffs.
The formal winter rush is being
held next week for women who may
not have had enough time to partici-
pate in the fall.
PanHellenic Advisor Mary Beth
Seiler said that in the past,
individual sororities held their own
rushes because there was not enough
space in the houses for Panhel to
organize a coordinated event.
She said because six houses have
vacancies this term, they are partici-
pating in winter rush.
"This is the first time in a long
time that we have had enough
sororities with openings to actually
organize a winter rush," Seiler said,
adding that the names of the sorori-
ties will be released at the mass
meeting.
Unlike the specific procedures of
fall rush, Seiler added the winter
rush will be less structured.
Seiler described differences be-
tween fall and winter rush, indicat-
ing that winter rush requires rushees
to attend only three parties instead of
the usual four and involves no regis-
tration fee.
"There were a large number of
people that rushed in the fall, but
this is a better opportunity because
it's more informal and relaxed,"
Seiler said. "It will be simpler for
rushees as it's not as time consum-
ing as fall rush."
LSA junior Gretchen Miller, a
member of the PanHellenic
Executive Board, said winter rush
would give women unable to partic-
ipate in the fall process another
chance.
"We thought that rush in the
winter would be an opportunity to
get more people involved in the
Greek system ... we are always try-
ing to expand our membership,"
Miller explained.
Miller said she is unsure of the

projected turnout because Panhel has
never organized winter rush, but she
hopes the timing will suit interested
participants.
"It's a lot less hectic and is a
quicker process," Miller said. "They
don't have to worry about falling
behind in their classes - it's a lot
less formal. It gives them a chance
to get more used to the University
and also rush."
Seiler also said she hopes the
time elapsed between the beginning
'Winter rush is more
laid back ... it's a great
way to meet people,
and you get a good
idea of what the
houses are really like.'
- Cynthia McIntyre
LSA senior
of school and winter term will attract
students who were previously over-
whelmed with starting classes and
acquainting themselves with the
campus.
"I'm happy we have an opportu-
nity for the winter, because rush was
very early this year," Seiler said.
"There were a lot of women who
may not have known what they re-
ally wanted, especially freshman
students."
In addition to giving students
another chance to rush, Miller said
the process also provides advantages
for the participating sororities.
"It gives houses an opportunity to
strengthen individually," Miller said.
"It gives us a wider base for partici-
pation in Greek activities and
strengthens the sisterhood."
Cynthia McIntyre, LSA senior
and Alpha Gamma Delta rush chair,
said she believes this is the perfect
chance for students to both rush and
meet people.
"Winter rush is more laid back ...
it's a great way to meet people, and
you get a good idea of what the
houses are really like," she said.
