jPROPOSAL
Continued from Page 1A
the cost of college more affordable,"
Hanley said.
The Democratic proposal involves
the creation of a Hope Scholarship
program in Michigan, which would
pay for high school students who
have a 3.0 grade point average and
90 percent attendance rate in school
to attend community college for up
. o two years.
Rep. Gilda Jacobs (D-Huntington
Woods) said the Democratic proposal is
in its early stages and could be modi-
fied to include four-year universities as
well.
"I think the concept is to expand,"
Jacobs said.
Engler's plan calls for the estab-
lishment of Michigan Merit Awards
for students who score well on the
.4 ichigan Educational Assessment
rogram test.
According to the proposal, stu-
dents who pass the MEAP test in
high school would receive $2,500
toward tuition to any in-state college
or university. Middle school stu-
dents who pass the test would
receive an additional $500, bringing
the total amount available to each
student to $3,000.
* "Judging by last year, 21,000 stu-

dents would have qualified," Truscott
said.
He said the program is projected to
cost about $59 million in its first
year.
Funds for the scholarship program
would come from tobacco settlement
money the state will receive beginning
next year, Truscott said, adding that
Michigan will receive $100 million as
the first installment of the $8 billion
settlement.
Truscott said the program, if
approved, will likely affect current high
school seniors.
"Students who take the test this
school year could be receiving the
money next fall," Truscott said.
Truscott argued that the tobacco
settlement would provide a long-term
source of funding, whereas the
Democratic Hope Scholarship pro-
posal has no guaranteed financial
backing.
"The difference is that ours is paid
for," Truscott said. "We'd like to set up
an endowment fund so this could pay
for itself" with its own interest.
Republicans and Democrats disagree
about whether the tobacco money
should be routed into the Michigan
Merit Awards program.
"What better use can there be for
tobacco money coming back in state,"
House Speaker Chuck Perricone (R-

Kalamazoo) said after Engler's speech
last week.
Rep. Lingg Brewer (D-Holt) said
Engler is using money for his own
agenda that should go toward other pro-
grams.
"To me the governor is creating new
programs that have a lot of superficial
appeal without funding the old ones;'
Brewer said.
Jacobs said she thinks funds from the
tobacco settlement should be used for
health issues.
"I think his proposal is great," Jacobs
said, but "I'm not sure if he should use
tobacco money to pay for it."
Truscott disputed Democratic claims
that Michigan underfunds health pro-
grams and said "there will be some
health-related spending" from the set-
tlement.
"We already spend more than most
other states on tobacco and health
issues" Truscott said.
John Boshoven, counselor for contin-
uing education at Ann Arbor
Community High School, said Engler
may have an ulterior motive in using the
MEAP test for his plan.
"It certainly is a good motivator to
have kids take the MEAP," Boshoven
said.
He said many students have been opt-
ing not to take the MEAP test in recent
years, because the test serves mainly as

"What better use can there be for
tobacco money coming back in state,"
- Chuck Perricone
House Speaker (R-Kalamazoo)

an evaluation of high school curriculum
- not as an individual students' acade-
mic performance.
"Kids come to us and say, 'What's in
it for me?"' Boshoven said.
Truscott said Engler's plan uses the
MEAP test because high school grades
are non-standardized.
"A 'B' in different school districts
means different things;' Truscott said.
Boshoven said the Hope Scholarship
program would be most beneficial to
students who may think college is not
for them.
"Those aren't the kids that are
deciding between Washtenaw
(Community College) and U of M,"
Boshoven said. "They're the ones
who are deciding between Washtenaw
and getting a job."
Donna Kennedy, Democratic poli-
cy analyst on higher education, said
that although the Democratic plan in
its current form pays only tuition for
community colleges, it also includes
eliminating sales tax on textbooks
and allowing tuition tax credits -

issues that Engler's plan does not
address.
"Those kinds of things will go fur-
ther" Kennedy said.
Brewer said he hopes Democrats and
Republicans can find a compromise
between the two plans.
"I think both of them have some
merit,' Brewer said. "There needs to be
some common ground."
Boshoven said Michigan is
attempting to join other states that
have implemented tuition-incentive
programs.
The state of Georgia has had a HOPE
Scholarship Program since 1993.
Funded by the state's lottery, the pro-
gram provides tuition, fees and a book
allowance for students with a 'B' aver-
age in high school to attend a public
college in Georgia.
During the 1997-98 school year,
HOPE scholarships totaled $173.3 mil-
lion for 136,725 students in Georgia.
Since the program's inception, nearly
400,000 students have received scholar-
ships.

CLINTON
Continued from Page IA
expected - Clinton is acquitted on the
two articles of impeachment.
"I now declare in a post-impeach-
ment era, this is a gloat-free zone" he
said.
Republican senators met privately
late in the day, pondering their next
moves in the trial, which is scheduled
to resume today.
John Czwartacki, a spokesperson for
Sen. Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-
Miss.), told reporters he expected a
vote at that time on a proposal to
release the depositions of Lewinsky
and two other witnesses, both the writ-
ten transcripts and the videotapes. He
suggested they could remain under seal
for a limited period of time.
For their part, House prosecutors met
to weigh the results of the three deposi-
tions. They said an attempt would be
made to have witnesses testify in the
Senate in person. But GOP aides con-
ceded it would be difficult to secure
enough votes to prevail on that issue,
particularly with public opinion in
favor of a swift end to the proceedings.
The Democratic maneuvering came
as Sidney Blumenthal, a White House
aide, was questioned in a heavily
secured room in the upper reaches of
the Capitol.
