that enhanced sanctions should be con-
sidered," Gewolb said. Elkin said he
agrees with this proposal.
MSA, the University's executive offi-
cers and the Senate Advisory Commit-
tee on University Affairs are given the
opportunity to submit proposals to the
code during its review process, which
takes place every two years. After the
proposals are submitted, SRAC decides
which amendments to submit to Cole-
man, who will then approve changes
for implementation in July.
But in the past the head of OSCR has had
the final say on code changes, said Gold.
"The experience from two years ago
was that when the head of OSCR has
made up his mind, that's the way itsis,"
Elkin said he supports all of MSA's other
proposals except seven that would restrict
OSCR's procedural practices concerning the
ways in which the organization administers
the code. These amendments would cover
a wide range of procedures from arbitration
recordings to hearing proceedings.
Gewolb said OSCR is the delegating
authority when it comes to administering
code procedure, yet its practices are not
explicit in the code.
Gewolb said knowing how rights
are administered is sometimes "simply
more essential to freedom" than know-
ing the rights themselves. "It is essen-
tial that procedures be subject to the
same amendment and review process
as other rights," he added.
Elkin said Vice President for Student
Affairs E. Royster Harper's proposal -
which would allow for MSA representatives
to comprise a majority of the OSCR Advi-
sory Board and allow that board to review
OSCR's procedures each year - would bet-
ter address these procedural issues.
"We're not rejecting the substance of
any of the proposals that deal with the
process," Elkin said. "All we're saying
is that Vice President Harper's way of
addressing it is a better way because it
allows for annual review."
Students can give feedback on proposed
amendments on the OSCR website, www.
umich.edu/~oscr. OSCR will also hold an
open forum for discussion regarding poten-
tial code changes on Wednesday from 4 to
6 p.m. at the Union in Anderson Rooms C

last year when the regents agreed to hold

The substantial revision in the state
economists' estimate is largely due to a dra-
matic shortfall in tax revenue for FY 2004,
$124 million less than expected, Senate
Fiscal Agency economist David Zinn said.
The state will have to adjust its 2005 budget
to account for this smaller tax base.
Also to blame is the slow rate of job cre-
ation in Michigan, which fell short of the
state's official estimate for FY 2004, Zinn
added. The state unemployment rate was
6.6 percent in October, the most recent
month for which data are available. One
factor Zinn cited in this trend is increasing
productivity in the auto industry, which
has allowed the Big Three automakers to
maintain production levels without hiring
more employees. Zinn also mentioned
lower sales among the Big Three, both
in absolute terms and relative to foreign
competition, asa factor.
The governor will revise her budget
for the current fiscal year when the prin-
cipals meet again in January. Bird said
Granholm's office expects to have a small
surplus from FY 2004.
Because the state is still receiving
money from FY 2004 liabilities, the size
of the surplus, if it materializes, will not
be known until next month and will be
factored into the new revenue estimate at
