The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, January 28, 2004 - 7

The form requires them to put their family's
incomes and tax-return information. The new
tables could lower Pell Grants because many
states have lowered taxes since 1988, making
the government think families need less aid.
According to a 2003 Congressional Research
Service memo, low-income applicants will not be
affected. "Expected family contributions of a sig-
nificant number of very low-income aid applicants
will be unaffected by these revisions, and that many
relatively high-income applicants will find their eli-
gibility for federal aid unaffected, although their
EFCs may have risen," the memo states.
The Department of Education estimates that
postponing the required update to the state tax per-
centages would increase Pell grant expenditures for
the 2004-2005 school year by $270 million.
While changes will be made to the tax
tables, Rodriguez said implications are still

uncertain. "We will run analyses to see how
changes in Pell will impact funding for our
students, but this issue has been so up and
down that we do not know yet how it will
affect students," she said.
Paige clarified how financial aid is measured.
"It is important to note that a number of
family financial and household circumstances
affect a student's eligibility for aid each year,
and therefore it is difficult to determine the
overall impact of this update nationwide,"
Financial aid is affected by annual changes in
the amount of family income, household size,
federal income taxes paid, the number of family
members enrolled in college and values of sav-
ings and assets.
"We intend to continue this strong support
for the Pell grant program in order to assist stu-
dents from low-income families in their dream
of obtaining a postsecondary education," he

tively. In addition, the administration down-
sized staffs, cut classes and reduced certain
Granholm pointed to her accomplishments
in completing a budget despite a $3 billion
budget deficit. She noted that all state depart-
ments saw reduced appropriations.
"We have spent a year twisting the wet
towel of government tight, to wring out ounce
after ounce of inefficiency. We trimmed hun-
dreds of millions of dollars by cutting cell
phone usage, turning off lights and calling in
state cars," Granholm said. "If you seek a
leaner government, look about you."
But Granholm noted that the state would
continue to expand on new ideas and the state
economy. She reaffirmed her "Cool Cities Ini-
tiative," an idea to revitalize cities to keep col-
lege graduates from leaving the state. Cool
Cities also involves expanding the state job
market and attracting more businesses to the
"I am pleased to say that this is a bottom-
up movement in which nearly 80 of our com-
munities have local commissions on cool
that are uncorking the bottle of creativity and
unleashing the bottle of possibility - plan-
ning everything from bike paths to book-
stores to attract more people and new
businesses," Granholm said.
In a prepared GOP response, state Rep.
Scott Shackleton (R- Sault Ste. Marie) said
job creation was a top priority for the legisla-
ture this year.
"We will fight for every Michigan job,
and we won't stop fighting until every
person who wants to work can find a job,"
Michigan business groups said they were
also pleased with Granholm's speech.
"I heard and welcomed a pro-jobs, pro-
manufacturing and basically conservative
message that called for making the state more
business-friendly, said John MacIlroy, presi-
dent and chief executive officer of the Michi-
gan Manufacturers Association.
Granholm also made health care an .
important focus of her speech last night.
She proposed a new Michigan Prescrip-
tion Discount card, know as the MI-RX,
which she said would allow 200,000 sen-
ior citizens and working people without
insurance to cut the cost of prescription
drugs by as much as 20 percent. The card
is modeled after a program started by
Macomb County last year.
"We will expand access to basic health-
care" Granholm said. "Few things affect the
quality of our life and the quality of our work
more than good health."
