that we can deal with."
Sage Eastman, communications director for the Michigan
Republican Party, said the bills will protect taxpayers' rights.
"This is a case of tough love, but we have to make sure the
taxpayers' dollars are used appropriately," Eastman said.
"What I think the bill will do is cut down on wasting taxpay-
ershard-earned money."
Both Berryman and state Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith (D-
Salem Twp.) said they will enter today's hearing with caution
since the issue has the potential to back them both into a corner.
"It's one of those pieces of legislation that they use to set

there's no consequences."
Although the Committee on Education voted unanimously to
send the bill to the Senate floor, Smith pointed out that a num-
ber of groups have opposed the bills from the beginning.
"The Michigan Higher Education Assistance
Authority and the Michigan Higher Education Student
Loan Authority were opposed to the bills,' Smith said.
"The authority has adopted a position of no support for
the bills."
Kinesiology first-year student Kelley Peters said this legis-
lation worries her because it would not give students a second
chance to redeem themselves after making poor decisions.
"It would be detrimental' Peters said. "If they don't need it,
take it away. But for first time offenders, give them the aid."
But even if these bills pass, University students might not
lose substantial funding, Smith said.
