a °- ositions may be consolidated, but we don't want
give the impression that someone could lose their
job," she said.
Brown stressed that negotiations are in the early
s ges and nothing has been solidified about service
"There is discussion that some of the hours that are
iyen to part-time drivers might be part of what AATA
picks up, but those discussions are still in early negoti-
on stages," she said.
Brown also denied rumors that the entire University
I bus system could be eliminated.
"We just ordered buses and we're planning on
ordering more," she said. "We will continue to
look at ways to make it more efficient."
University Parking and Transportation Services offi-
cials plan to meet with employees Saturday to discuss
the negotiations with AATA.
The University's relationship with AATA has inten-
sified through the years, as AATA has become more
involved with the transport of students. In addition to

serving remote lots such as the joint commuter lot on
South State Street, the AATA has helped the Universi-
ty in transportation crunches.
Brown said the University established an agree-
ment with AATA last summer when a bus mainte-
nance garage burned down. Increasing its
agreements with AATA would also create more
efficient routes, Brown said.
"It would be different if our campus was closed, but
we have city streets running througli campus, so it's a
major thoroughfare," she said.
Brown said new routes would increase the number
of stops on and near campus and accommodate the
needs of staff and students who live farther away. By
expanding routes, the partnership would extend Uni-
versity bus services to much of Washtenaw County,
Brown said.
"Students come from parts of the county that aren't
two miles away" Brown said.
Cunningham said he has heard a persistent com-
plaint about AATA and the University bus service
not operating as one system. Cunningham said the
University does not serve off-campus areas as well
as it could.

"We want to align our services to get the ability to
take a bus from home or school or work or to take a
bus from a remote lot," he said.
Cunningham said the services would remain free in
order to encourage students to use the bus system.
"We're trying to get more students using the Univer-
sity buses instead of cars and congesting parking,"
Cunningham said.
LSA senior Chris MacKechnie, a driver since 1996,
said the issue is politically sensitive and could elimi-
nate the jobs of students who need to work in order to
eat and pay their tuition.
MacKechnie said it would be difficult for a
combined service with AATA to accomplish
change because of unfamiliarity with student
"Students wanted better weekend bus service, air-
conditioning, and year-long service and we accommo-
dated them," MacKechnie said.
"We've been serving students since 1960 and we
have experience in knowing what to fix," he said. "The
University bus system is an efficient system and the
proposed plan for better service can be accomplished
in the current framework."

addition to the University of Michigan
and MIT, were the universities of Penn-
sylvania and California at Berkeley, the
California Institute of Technology and
Princeton, Yale, Harvard and Stanford
Tedesco pointed out that three of
the nine leaders at the workshop had
ties, to the University of Michigan.
Besides Bollinger, Princeton Presi-
dent Harold Shapiro is a former
University of Michigan president

and MIT President Charles Vest is a
former University of Michigan
"It says something about the
importance of the role of Michigan
in these conversations," Tedesco
Beilyn said the most crucial develop-
ment at the conference was recognition
of the problem from people who arejn a
place to change it.
"It happens," she said. "The nim-
bers show it, the experiences otthe
people show it. It's very important that
.these universities work on it."

:tly affect Ann Arbor is to
Michigan as another "Silicon
eaking about the develop-

power of the people;'Smith said.
" Rep. Wayne Kuipers (R-Holland)
said he is forgoing final judgment until
.he sees the actual proposed plan but
feels the idea would "allow more peo-
pIe to have input."
The proposal tied in with
gler's support of state Supreme
Court Justice Elizabeth Weaver's
*modified federal plan" to appoint
all members of the court similar to
the way in which federal judges are
appointed by the president and con-
firmed by the U.S. Senate. A con-
stitutional amendment was
introduced to the state Senate on
Tuesday by Sen. Ken Sikkema (R-
'. GFandville).
*Another part of Engler's plan that

ment of the second-generation Inter-
net, dubbed "Internet 2," Engler said
he wanted its leadership team "to
make Ann Arbor their permanent
home. "
"Our message to Internet 2," he
said: "Go Blue!"
"That's going to be a real real big
plus for us. The spillover is just going
to be a huge plus for my district," said
Rep. Laura Toy (R-Livonia).
Engler, who several times noted that
taxes in the state have been continu-
ously dropping, proposed efforts to
attract high-tech companies.
"Let's put out the welcome mat and
exempt them from Michigan's state
business tax," he said.
"He's trying to develop a whole cor-

ridor of high-technology from Ann
Arbor to Wayne State," said Sen. Mat
Dunaskiss (R-Lake Orion).
Although many Democrats said
they found Engler's plans for high-
technology uplifting, some
expressed reservations that the
Engler administration was moving
too quickly away from problems
that still exist.
There are more important reasons
to move to a state than tax cuts, said
House Minority Leader Kwame Kil-
patrick of Detroit, adding that those
need to be worked out before focus
is transferred to less pressing issues.
"Before we go to the next we need
to deal with the now," Kilpatrick said.
Rep. Jack Minore (D-Flint), the
assistant minority floor leader, said in
order to attract high-tech companies,
Michigan would be better off with

fewer tax cuts and more educated
"High-tech companies tend to
locate where there is a good work-
force,"he said.
Engler admitted that not every-
thing is perfect. Making education
once again his top priority, the gov-
ernor said there are 208 schools in
which three out of four children
cannot read.
"Here he has been in office for
10 years and he is concerned about
208 schools," Smith said. "What
has he been doing for the last 10
Michigan has fixed many of the
problems that plagued the state in the
1980s and '90s, said Lt. Gov. Dick
Posthumus. "Now we can go on to the
next generation of issues that can bring
people together."

vehicles on order, he said.
Also, the University's diesel-powered vehicles
use a special fuel called bio-diesel, which is a
mix of diesel fuel and a soy-based product. And
the University recently purchased seven new
buses that produce 97 percent fewer hydrocar-

bons, 87 percent less particulate matter and 28
percent less nitrous oxide than the 1988 buses in
the fleet.
"We've done a lot of serious work and it's
been going on for a number of years," Baier
said, adding that discussions with the ELPC will
be ongoing.
