".ouse considers bill to
tontrol pay phone rates

OCAL/STATE

The Michigan Daily - Monday, February 16, 1998 - 7A

-'I

PTANSING (AP) - House law-
rikers hope to protect unsuspecting
consumers this week from high
bayges when they make long dis-
St-Yn e calls from pay phones.
_.;cp. Eileen DeHart (D-Westland)
rafed the bill to mirror a recent set of
rules on pay phone rate disclosure
issued by the Federal Communications
┬▒upmmission.
-The bill would require that long
,-distance carriers identify themselves
(t-the beginning of a call. The pay-
" ione owner must also post infor-
naition on or near the pay phone
*cling how consumers can get rate
information on the carrier through a
toll-free number.
"Michigan consumers are paying
as much as $13 for the first minute
d(iing some types of calls," DeHart
said. "Keeping rates a secret from
consumers is an outrageous prac-
tice."
Pay phone rate complaints rank
*hird in the types of complaints the
CC receives from consumers about
telephone usage.
DeHart said state law allows pay-
phone companies to charge up to
'300 percent of the average rates con-
Aurners pay on their regulated bills
)i th companies like AT&T, Sprint
.ad-MCI.
,Little major legislation is expected
b iit the House floor this week as
-grnmittees begin meeting to debate
SURF
http:I/w

Gov. John Engler's proposed $8.8 bil-
lion 1998-99 fiscal year budget.
In the Senate, most attention will be
focused on a special committee formed
to study the future of Sen. Henry
Stallings (D-Detroit). The freshman
Democrat admitted that he took more
than 100 under false pretenses in using
a Senate employee to work in his
Detroit art gallery.
Under a plea agreement Stallings
reached with prosecutors, Wayne
County Circuit Judge Sean Cox is to
hold Stallings' guilty plea "under
advisement" for one year.
If Stallings has no further legal
problems, Cox is to reduce the crime
from a felony to a misdemeanor of
taking money less than $100 under
false pretenses.
Meanwhile, a special bipartisan
Senate committee has begun weighing
whether to censure or expel Stallings.
Committee Chair Willis Bullard (R-
Milford) has scheduled a second meet-
ing for this week.
"We're creating a precedent for
future cases," Bullard said, noting
that no senator has ever been booted
out of office.
"I don't think anybody in the
Senate is interested in expelling a
senator," he said. "But it is our job to
make a decision and judgment on
Senator Stallings' case."
The only state lawmaker ever
expelled was Rep. Monte Geralds (D-

Madison Heights), who was ousted in
1978 after being convicted of embez-
zling money from a law client before
joining the Legislature.
Last week, Stallings' attorney,
Kenneth Hylton, questioned the
chamber's power to expel Stallings,
which would take a two-thirds vote
of the 38-member chamber.
But Senate lawyers said legal
precedents give the Senate broad
discretion on who can be ousted
from office and for what reason.
The Senate has little major legis-
lation before it this week. But it is
slated to open discussion soon on
bills to give financial incentives to
police officers who live in high-
crime areas.
"Encouraging police officers to
live in areas infested with drugs and
crime can provide the extra influ-
ence a community needs to create
safe neighborhoods," said Sen. Mike
Rogers (R-Brighton), who spon-
sored the bills.
The bills would create state income
tax and mortgage interest exemptions
for officers buying homes in high-
crime areas and grant free auto registra-
tions and license plates for such offi-
cers.
"When officers live in the areas
where high crime rates exist, they
build trust and confidence among
neighbors," said Rogers, a former
FBI agent.

Kappa Alpha Psi members express themselves at the Black Greek Association Step show. The event was held to promote
unity among the Black Greek Association.

STEP SHOW
Continued from Page 1A
dancing," Wilson said. "Steps have
been handed down for generations.
All the rhythms come from
African beats. You put your per-
sonality in the dancing and add
new flavors.-
Practicing for the big show can
be an arduous process, participants
said. Perfecting the step routine
takes hard work and high motiva-
tion.

But once the dancers are on stage,
fatigue is forgotten and the crowd's
enthusiasm revitalizes the dancers.
"It's good when you put in long
hours and see the final product and
the reaction of the crowd," said
Kappa Alpha Psi Sigma president
and Engineering senior J. Mitchell.
"When the crowd is enthused,
you get an adrenaline rush," he
said.
Judging from the applause, spec-
tators enjoyed the raucous show.
Emcee Toni Minor said he enjoyed

thi show from backstage.
'I think the performances are
going nicely," said Minor, an LSA
senior. "It brings the community
together and it lets the frats and
sororities showcase their talents."-
Audience members were equally
impressed with the energetic step=
ping.
'It's very entertaining," said
Engineering junior Charley Lloyd.
"They've been working really
hard. I'm kind of surprised at how
well they've been doing."
