Engler speech addresses crime, education

Levin, Rivers to
discuss Israel

ADDRESS
Continued from Page 1.
new funding formula for higher education, which
he said would eliminate funding that is arbitrary or
purely political while still maintaining a system of
l cr education that is "the best in the country."
Providing financial opportunities to students
interested in going to college was also addressed in
the speech. Engler's plan would allot S2,500 to each
student who passes the MEAP test. The money
would be used to pay tuition at any Michigan college
or university. Engler stressed the positive reinforce-
ment of Michigan's youth.
"It is important we reward students who play by
the rules and meet our standards,' Engler said.
Funds regained from the settlement with the
tobacco industry would subsidize the project.
On the subject of education, Engler stressed his

support for the reforms President Clinton mandated
in last week's State of the Union address, such as the
termination of social promotions, higher teacher
standards and more choice in schools.
Also on the minds of members of both parties
were two different versions of an income tax cut for
Michigan residents. The Republican plan proposed
by Engler promises to cut the income tax rate from
4.4 percent to 3.9 percent.
The new cut would "add billions to the $11 bil-
lion we've already saved Michigan taxpayers,"
Engler said.
The issue of crime was also focused on in the
speech, and Engler reaffirmed his commitment to
curbing it.
"We will be relentless in the fight against crime,"
he said.
Specifically, Engler said he is pleased with the
fact that the number of prisoners in Michigan is

up. He said he makes no apologies for that fact
because in Michigan, "if you do the crime, you do
the time."
The governor briefly mentioned the environment,
congratulating the state on the success of the Clean
Michigan Initiative, sponsored by Republicans, but
joined, in the end by many of the state's leading
politicians.
Brater disputed Engler's claim that Nlichigan is
cleaner than it has been in "generations."
"Every year he gets up there and says our cnvi-
ronment is cleaner than ever" she said. "This is a
complete and bald faced lie."
Unlike Democrats, Republican legislators were
pleased with the speech, said House Speaker Chuck
Perricone (R-Kalamazoo). "The Governor gave a
heck of a speech here," Perricone said. "He hit a
home run. The Democrats aren't happy because
Republicans get it dole."

By Kelly O'Connor
Daily Staff Reporter
Students from across Michigan will
travel to campus this weekend to partic-
ipate in a confer-
once about U.S.-
Israel relations.
"From the Great
Lakes to the Dead
Sea" is a day-long '
seminar designed
to educate students
on recent develop-
ments in the
Middle East and
provide speakers Levin
on subjects rang-
ing from U.S. foreign policies to jobs in
Congress.
U.S. Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.)
and U.S. Rep. Lynn Rivers (D-Ann
Arbor) will be speaking during the
day, along with Jim Alexander, direc-
tor of Gov. John Engler's southeast
Michigan office, Mark Brewer, chair
of the Michigan Democratic Party
and others.
The American Israel Public Affairs
Committee is sponsoring the confer-
ence in conjunction with Hillel. LSA
senior Donnie Tigay, one of the con-
ference's coordinators, said having a
lineup of recognizable speakers
enhances the programs planned for
,, . 4%A a. 1O O .l

the day.
"This conference is really great,
becausn not only will it give us a look at
U.S. politics, but also the two of them
will be talking about why it's important
to get involved on your campus," Tigay
said. "We are very fortunate to get these
speakers."
Rivers said she will be addressing
students who are thinking about pursu-
ing a career in politics and hopes she
can prepare them.
"I go to help people understand what
they're going to encounter on the Hill,"
Rivers said. "As a Representative, any
time I can help people access our
democracy, it's better for everybody."
Levin's spokesperson Tara Andringa
said although the senator has not yet
finalized plans for his speech, he has
outlined his main points.
"The two things he'll be talking
about are the political activism on cam-
pus - about students getting involved
- and international-U.S, relations,"
Andringa said.
Serving as the ranking Democrat on
the Senate Armed Services Committee
will afford Levin extra knowledge that he
can share with students, Andringa said.
The Conference will take place
Sunday, Jan. 31 from 9 a.m.-3:30
p.m. Anyone interested in attending
should contact Hillel at 769-0500.
