"The last week of February was the
first bill they passed this year," he said.
A group of activists and former politi-
cians have been holding meetings
around the state to mobilize support for a
repeal of term limits. These meetings are
led by Blue Cross/Blue Shield Senior
Vice President Richard Cole and Michi-
gan State Medical Society Executive
Former Republican House Speaker
Paul Hillegonds, a'participant in the
meetings, said complicated legislation
requires experienced legislators.
"When I look back at some of the
more difficult policy issues that we tack-
led, we were successful not simply
because one party outvoted the other but
because people of both parties knew
each other and trusted each other enough
to do win-win compromises," Hille-

their support for the system is unwaver-
"It is not surprising to me that there is
near-unanimous support among legisla-
tors for extending term limits. Term lim-
its is a restriction on their ability to stay
in one office for a near lifetime, which
was a common occurrence before the
amendment passed," said Patrick Ander-

several aspects of the election.
"It was a hard-run election, and
many people feel that there needs to
be reforms for the process," said
LSA sophomore Ben Conway, who
ran with the Blue Party. "Hopefully
we can establish a taskforce."
Though Election Board director
Ryan Norfolk said the election went
"blissfully smoothly," other board
members said it was emotionally
"It was hell," said Election Board
member Elizabeth Anderson. "I
hated every minute of it."
New representatives and execu-
tives will take office tomorrow in a
meeting held immediately after the
final meeting for old representatives.
Sen. David Jaye (R-Washington Twp.)
said it is too early to make a decision
since members of the Senate will not
have faced term limits at all until 2002,
when 75 percent of senators will be term
"Give (term limits) a chance to work
through the Senate,"he said.
Most of the pro-repeal forces in Lans-
ing said it was unlikely that they could
get a proposal on the ballot before
November 2002, thereby forcing numer-
ous members of the House and Senate to
relinquish their seats.
A recent poll conducted by Lansing-
based polling firm EPIC-MRA shows
that those who favor a change in the pre-
sent system may have a long way to go.
Among 600 eligible voters, a total
repeal of term limits was viewed favor-
ably by 47 percent while the same num-
ber favored maintaining the system. An
alteration similar to the one proposed by
Steil was viewed favorably by 42 percent
and unfavorably by 49 percent.

on the show, which did not feel quite as
