Latest state allocations bittersweet for higher education

By Jennifer Harvey

BJennifer Harvey
Daily Staff Reporter
On June 20, Gov. John Engler signed a $1.5-bil-
lion budget for higher education and financial aid
for the state's 15 public colleges and universities,
allocating $302 million to the University for next
year, an increase of 4.6 percent.
The budget marks a 5.5-percent increase from
current year's higher-education budget. It is
the largest budget increase for the University in
10 years, according to Walter Harrison, vice pres-
ident for University relations.
"We're really pleased by the allocation," Harri-
son said. "It will be very, very good for students"
Even though the budget increases the higher
education allocation, the language at the end of the
bill penalizes universities for making medical ben-
efits available to same-sex partners of its employ-

ees and for funding abortions. The budget ded
an amount from the University's allocation e
to the amount the University spends on cove
for unmarried partners of its employees an(
amount it spends on funding abortions.
Harrison said the University offers cov
only to unmarried gay and lesbian partners of
versity employees, and not to heterosexual un
ried partners. He also said the University keel

(D-Detroit) have written a letter to the state attor-
ney general, asking him to address the constitu-
tionality of the bill.
"It is unconstitutional," Smith said. "It seeks to
direct the University on how it might spend the
dollars it is appropriated."
A decision by the attorney general would cir-
cumvent costly legal processes for universities,
Smith said.
"If we can save the universities from having to
spend hundreds of thousands of dollars protecting
their constitutional autonomy, we would certain-
ly like to do this," Smith said.
