work," one respondent said in the report..
Michigan currently restricts access to post-secondary
education by limiting the counting of educational hours
toward work requirements, which are set at 40 hours per
week, to only the last year of a two or four year program.
According to the survey, 28 percent of students with chil-
dren had to leave high school because they could not
meet their work requirements and go to school at the
same time.
"It was very difficult trying to work 20 hours a week,
have 17 hours of clinical plus four hours of lecture and
also 10-15 hours of study time a week. God has helped
me, FIA sure didn't," said another study respondent.
In addition to the personal benefits to be gained
through an educationally based program, the state would
also stand to gain economically. The increase in salary for
those former recipients with degrees would generate
three times as much state tax revenue. Michigan would
also save $5.7 million per year in childcare assistance for
former recipients who would be able to afford care on
their own.
The report is not advocating that welfare students be
exempt from normal tuition fees. Students would be expect-
ed to provide their tuition through available programs.
"Welfare recipients would need to participate in work
study and other financial aid programs, just like everyone
else. It's about setting up a situation in which they don't
have to work 40 hours a week and then go to school,"
Sullivan said.
. The University has a relatively small population of
students on welfare, but several participated in the
study.
"At Michigan we would have one of the lowest (per-
centages). The percentage tends to be much higher at
community colleges. Community colleges have programs
directed specifically at such students," Jeanne Miller, a
representative for CEW, said.
If Michigan were to adopt the recommendations of the
report, it would not be the first state to do so. Twenty-two
states are already using similar programs, and the report
uses those different approaches to support and outline
how their proposals could work. But, such a change in
policy may not be forthcoming.
"The state legislature just recently passed a bill that
actually makes it look like it's going to make things more
difficult, not easier," Miller said.

this so you don't have to cross a picket line one day," Hinkle
said. "And it's also to show the administration that we do have
the power to pull off a strike if need be. If they see 600 people
outside they will have to take contract negotiations a bit more
seriously."
Graduate students at Temple University, who voted in
March 2001 to unionize, said they are continuing to focus on
more basic issues.
"It took us several months for us to get them to even recog-
nize the results of our election," said Rob Callahan, an organiz-
er of Temple University Graduate Student Association.
"Certainly at many institutions, the opposition is by no means
as protracted and as opposing. (Michigan State) didn't fight
the very existence of the union, once it was voted on. Temple's
administration fought our very existence"
Callahan said that because TUGSA is the first success-
ful graduation student unionization effort in Pennsylvania,
no previous precedent or law regarding whether students
had the right to organize was set, making it harder to form
the union.
The Board of Trustees voted in September to recognize
TUGSA. In a statement given on Sept. 28, Temple Univer-
sity President David Adamany said the university had
wanted reassurance that TUGSA would not compromise
the college's integrity.
TUGSA and Temple have been negotiating their first con-
tract for 329 days.
Students at more than 10 different colleges are currently
struggling to gain recognition and the right to collective bar-
gaining, while the vast majority of other higher educational
institutions have not yet made successful strides toward union-
ization.
At the University of Washington in Seattle, students have
been working for a year and a half to unionize, although over
80 percent of the school's qualified graduate student employ-
ees have signed authorization cards asking for union represen-
tation.
University of Washington graduate student Brain Mello, a
spokesperson for the Graduate Student Employee Action
Coalition, said they are trying to form a union for the same
reasons as other schools.
"Ultimately, it all stems down to how decisions are made. ...
This is about changing that process and methods that allow
academic student employees to have that input," Mello said.
"Basically, it's sort of a part of a national trend. This trend is to
give student employees more power."

TERM LIMITS

hopes to put a proposal on the ballot to
do just that either in 2002 or 2004.
Kelly said he thinks his group's best
chance at repeal is getting the -Legisla-
ture to put a proposal on the ballot,
rather than starting a grassroots initia-
tive, which requires volunteers to collect
thousands of signatures in order to get
an amendment proposal on the ballot.
Kelly said he is meeting with House
Speaker Rick Johnson (R-LeRoy) this
week to discuss originating the propos-
al in the Legislature.
While there may be support for such
a move in the House, support in the
Senate seems less likely. In order to
place an amendment on the ballot,
both chambers of the Legislature must
approve it by a two-thirds vote.
Emmons, the Senate's Republican
floor leader, said although senators
want to extend the term limits, "We

"I see a great deal of dissatisfaction
from people whose professions require
them to deal consistently with a set of
government officials because term limits
make their job more difficult."
- Patrick Anderson
Writer of the 1992 term limits initiative

couldn't get anyone to sponsor it."
Patrick Anderson of the Anderson
Economic Group, who wrote the lan-
guage for the successful 1992 initia-
tive, said he does not make much of
any attempts to extend term limits.
He said that while citizens support
term limits, those against are mainly
term-limited officeholders and lobby-
ists who don't want to establish links to
new lawmakers every few years.

"I see a great deal of dissatisfaction
from people whose professions require
them to deal consistently with a set of
government officials because term
limits make their job more difficult,"
he said.
Idaho became the first state in the
nation to repeal its term limits law earli-
er this month when its legislature over-
rode a veto by Gov. Dirk Kempthorne.
No state has since followed suit.

the house was Henry Tappan in 1852,
and since then all but one president
has lived in it.
In 1970, the President's House was
added to the National Register of His-

In addition to entertaining statesmen
and the University community, the
house has had other uses over the years.
During World War I, the house served
as a headquarters for the Red Cross.
"They used it for rolling bandages
and things like that, not as a hospital,"
Truettner said.
