was under the influence of alcohol.
The student accepted responsibility
for possessing the knife, but denied
that he was under the influence of

Ryan Bradley, an RC sophomore

"Given the charge that they were

"You can't put a price tag on jus-

dollar amounts mentioned in the re-
port were not large.
Bradley was referring to the task
force's cost estimates, based on fig-
ures from other colleges and univer-
sities with similar policies. The report
estimated the financial implications
of extending benefits to same-sex
couples at between $100,000 and
$250,000. Currently, the University

Stein would not comment on her
reasons for resigning, but said she did
not make the decision until after the
March 21 election.
At the last SACUA meeting, the
committee decided to generate a list
of women eligible to fulfill the va-
cancy left by Stein. The list of candi-
dates was not discussed at yesterday's
meeting before appointing Blair.
SACUA member Ronald Lomax
made a motion that the incoming
member be the next highest vote get-
ter from the lastelection, which turned
out to be Blair. If confirmed, he will
serve for one of Stein's two remain-
ing years on the committee.
Blair said he was inclined to ac-
cept the position, but he will first
discuss the issue with SACUA Chair
"Since I was not elected, I was
asked to serve on the Budget Study
Committee. My serving on SACUA
would probably be contingent on my
decision to resign from that," he said.

quiring the couples to register their
domestic partnership, and predicted
that most couples would choose to
register in Ann Arbor.
Machen explained that couples in
Flint and Dearborn could register in
Ann Arbor as well. "I don't anticipate
anyone having a problem with that,"
The task force also recommended*
that same-sex couples be treated just
like married couples for student poli-
cies such as residency status, health
insurance and eligibility for athletic

task force found, is already in compli-

clear to me at the time that they con-

they're saying something else."

In addition, Bowen said this is onl@
the second election for the court.
"There are five of us on the court

lone dissenter, questioned whether'

"I'm not sure people were voting
with this in mind. I'm not sure that
this is representative of what people
want," Birge said.
Smith said women should be en-
couraged to run in the next election.
He asserted that SACUA will remain
committed to women's issues despite
the fact that the board now contains
only one female member.
"There is a fallacy here. Appoint-
ing a woman or a minority to a com-
mittee does not mean we get someone
supporting women or minority issues.
I think the current group of SACUA
members is very supportive -of
women's issues," Smith said.
