enough to pay for the borrowing of
Coleman and Martin went to
great lengths to emphasize their
desire to keep advertising out of the
"We don't want signs plastered
all over the place," Coleman said.
"It diminishes the Michigan brand
and takes away from the meaning
of the block 'M'," she said.
But Martin admits that advertis-
ing would be an efficient way to
pay for the operation. "The idea of
no advertising is nice, and I sup-
port it," Martin said. "But it could
be a major source of revenue."
If enclosed seating does offi-
cially become part of the plan, the
look of Michigan Stadium will be
dramatically altered. Because the
stadium is built into the ground,
the lowest part is already quite near
the water table, Coleman said.
It is therefore impossible to do
anything but increase the size
of the part of the stadium that is
above ground level.
"The scale of Michigan Sta-
dium will have to change,"
Martin said. "And so we're not
sure yet if (in terms of number
of seats) it will still be the Big
House, or the even bigger house
or not the Big House."
The University has hired
HNTB, an architectural firm
out of Kansas City, to help
draw up preliminary designs. It
is also working with University
architect Douglas Hanna to fig-
ure out the complex logistics.
Whatever the project entails,
Coleman is confident because
several surveys have been
returned and opinions garnered,
the overall sentiment about
renovations will be one of sup-
port. She said she believes that
the reaction will be far more
positive than the backlash that
occurred when the "Halo," a
maize and blue ring that encir-
cled the stadium, was put up.
"The Halo didn't improve the
stadium in any way," Coleman
said. "The changes that we want to
While support of efforts to
increase handicap-accessible seat-
ing, fixing bathrooms and improv-
ing circulation is wide, th re is a
large group of people who are very
much opposed to luxury seating.
John Pollock, founder of www.
savethebighouse.com has created
a petition protesting the addition
of luxury seating and supporting
renovations that will provide ame-
nities accessible to all fans.
"The unity of the fans will be
undermined if we start dividing
people into classes," Pollack said.
"From a value standpoint, Michi-
gan stands for equality of oppor-
tunity. Its mission is to ameliorate
divisions, not enshrine wealth and
power in glass and steel."
While plans are still very much
up in the air, Martin and Cole-
man said they are determined to
make the project meet the goals
and priorities of the stadium's

said. "We want to do this the right

been able to come to a public hear-
ing and say (whether) this was a good
idea," Hieftje said.
"Our attorneys were dragging
their feet a bit over the summer,
and then I decided it would be best
to do this when students were back
Michigan Student Assembly Pres-
ident Jesse Levine and former MSA
Rep. Stuart Wagner met with the
mayor over the summer to discuss
the importance of lease dates, and
said they were assured that prepara-
tions were underway.
Without protective housing legis-
lation, students continue to grapple
with high-pressure rental situations.
LSA junior Abby Czap said
she received a letter that said she
and the nine other residents in her
house had to reply by Oct. 21 or
Oppenheimer Properties would
allow any prospective tenants to
view and lease their house. Czap
said Hieftje's proposed legisla-
tion would definitely alleviate this
"We would not feel forced to
leave or stay, it would give us more
time to decide. We know we can
get housing other places, but it's
easier to stay, particularly if I want
to live in a house with nine other
girls next year," Czap said. Czap
added that factors such as plowing
fees, heating and other seasonal
costs would be helpful factors
to consider when determining
whether to renew the lease.
LSA senior Matt Dickman said he
has been renting from Oppenheimer
Properties for the past three years.
While he admitted he hadn't suf-
fered any detrimental consequences
as a result of signing his lease so
early, he also said he would have
preferred having extra time to plan
for next year.
"I think (the legislation) would
be nice because often times it's hard
to know within the first months of
school what your plans are for next
year, so it would be great to have
some extra time to figure things out,"

ations Committee. Ari Adler,
press secretary for state Sen.
Ken Sikkema (R-Wyoming),
the chair of the committee
and majority leader, said the
bills haven't been decided on
because more research has to
be done on the 2004 elections.
"We want to move cautiously
when (we're) dealing with
something as important as
voting," Adler said. "Chang-
ing any law that involves
elections needs to be done
very carefully. It's, a matter
of when everyone is comfort-
able that we've covered all the
But Brater said the
research has been done
already, as the bills have
been introduced in the
Senate many times before.
Brater introduced the bill
regarding absentee bal-
lots last year and then re-
introduced it this year.
"My impression is that
Republicans that control
this chamber are not eager
to make the voting process
more accessible," Brater
said. All 14 co-sponsors of
this bill are Democrats.
Other members of the Gov-
ernment Operation Commit-
tee did not respond to calls
from The Michigan Daily.
In the past, Republicans
have argued that this type
of electoral reform can
lead to voter fraud.. Brater
denied this claim: "The
vast majority of people are
law-abiding and don't want
to perjure themselves," she
Steve Hiller, the deputy
chief assistant prosecutor
at the Washtenaw County
