.tate House approves minimum-wag increase
LANSING (AP) - How times change.
Five months ago, state Republicans said in
rsponse to Democratic calls for action on
Michigan's minimum hourry wage that there was
"nb'need to raise it. But now, with the November
W1ttion approaching and a newly enacted feder-
al increase, the GOP-controlled Legislature is
hurrying through a Democratic bill.to lift the
rate to $5.15 from $3.35.
The House Human, Resources and Labor
Committee yesterday approved the bill, 6-0,
with Rep. Charles Perricone (R-Kalamazoo)
passing on his vote.
The entire House quickly followed, voting 94-
12 to pass the increase. The vote was capped by
Democrats singing the lines "I once was lost, but
now am found, was blind but now I see," from
the gospel hymn, "Amazing Grace.'
Senate Majority Floor Leader Dan DeGrow
(R-Port Huron) said that chamber also would
probably pass the measure before lawmakers
adjourn in three weeks. Jeff McAlvey, Gov. John
Engler's lobbyist, said the governor was likely to
sign the bill.
Republicans acknowledged that their new-
found interest in raising the minimum wage
grew mostly from political concerns, rather than
a change of heart about whether an increase
would be helpful to workers and the economy.
"We felt it was going to be an issue in the
fall," said House Speaker Paul Hillegonds (R-
Holland) who voted against the increase. He
added that Republicans believe it was important
to match the new federal rate.
"It's not something I'm comfortable with,"
said Perricone, who also voted against the bill.
"It's a prime example of election-season politics."
Labor Committee Chairman Walter DeLange
(R-Grand Rapids) believes raising the rate is
unnecessary because only a maximum of
133,000 Michigan employees work for the state
wage, and unwise because many of those work-
ers could lose their jobs.
But DeLange said he bowed to the wishes of
other Republicans who began to push for an
increase - particularly after President Clinton
signed the federal legislation last month.
DeLange and Hillegonds are not running for re-
election this year.
Tom Shields of Marketing Resource Group
Inc., a Lansing-based firm which does consult-
ing for Republicans, said the move was a smart
"It will prevent the Democrats from using it as
a campaign issue," he said.

LANSING (AP) - Elizabeth Dole
charmed about 1,500 supporters yester-
day with stories about her husband's
childhood and private good deeds as
she urged voters to decide the presiden-
tial election on the candidates' charac-
Mrs. Dole stepped away from the
speaker's platform and strolled the
aisles around the crowd while empha-
sizing virtues such as patriotism and
love of God she said make up her hus-
"This election is about the vision and
values that will shape America as we
move into the next century. It's about
the character of the person who will
lead us there" she said.
And she said Republican presidential
candidate Bob Dole's character is the
reason voters can be sure he will cut
income taxes 15 percent if he's elected.
"He doesn't make a promise he
doesn't intend to keep. You can take it
to the bank when he says he is going to
do it' she said.
The stress on character was 4l
reminder to voters of some of the issues
that have dogged President Clinton's
four years in office, including questions
about an Arkansas land development
known as Whitewater.
Before speaking to workers and sup-
porters on the plant floor at the
Demmer Corp., Mrs. Dole took a short
tour of the plant, a tool and dye manu-
facturer for the automotive industry.
Afterward, she got rave reviews.
"I think she was wonderful," said
Elizabeth Bogusz of Charlotte.
Bogusz said she likes "how she
endorses her husband, stands behind
Asked what impressed her most
about Mrs. Dole's speech, she said,
Mrs. Dole recounted how her hus-
band learned values such as personal
responsibility and respect while grow-
ing up poor in Russell, Kan.

Juip said he plans to lead a series of

Advisory committees also will be
formed to study and create the

implementation, final approval needs
to be given by the partners of each pro-
gram and the University president,
"We have a lot of input-seeking to
do," Hartford said. "We need commit-
tees to flush out the recommendations

Schoem said there also needs to be
further discussion about ways to fund
the new programs.
But in the meantime, the report out-
lines a plan for each incoming class -

said. "We're placing ourselves academ-

"The city is not aware of (any suit),"
Elias said yesterday. "There is no basis
for such a claim."
NWROC members said they think
the billing is ridiculous.
"The charge is outrageous," said
NW ROC member and Detroit resident
Luke Massie, who attended the June 22
rally. "They say we should pay for the
service of being pepper-sprayed and
tear-gassed. The overwhelming majori-
ty (of anti-Klan protesters) weren't even
"They can shove their charge up their
ass," Massie said.
He said the billing is just one of a
number of mistakes Ann Arbor officials
made in dealing with the Klan's petition
to rally, specifically in their decision to
provide police protection to Klan mem-
bers. "It's outrageous (the city) went so
far afield in staging and lavishly subsi-
dizing the rally in the first place."
Massie said he believes the Klan,
should be not be billed either. "They
shouldn't be charged because they
shouldn't have been there in the first
Ann Arbor Organizing Against the
Klan (A2 OAK), a grassroots organiza-
tion of University students and Ann
should seek legal counsel against the
city. George Washington, a .Detroit
attorney, defended several of the eight
anti-Klan protesters arrested on June 22
and said he would likely work on the
legal issues of the billing.
"It's outrageous to bill them and
prosecute eight people," Washington
said. "It's what towns in rural
Mississippi tried to do to the NAACP
30 years ago and Ann Arbor is follow-
ing in those footsteps."
"In my opinion, there's no way (the
billing will) hold up in court,"
Berlin said he had no reason to think
the city could not collect on the bills.
"We wouldn't have done it if we
thought it would be futile," he said. "I
don't believe there's a precedent in Ann
Arbor, but I know other cities: have
charged for services associated with
Another Klan rally and counter-rally
took place in Saginaw shortly after the

monitored that rally.

groups, and no plans to initiate any
