sity a 3-percent increase in funding
after three straight years of cuts.
State appropriations current-
ly compose about 25 percent, or
$325,796,300, of the University's
Ken Macgregor, spokesman for
the K-16 Coalition, the group that
backed the proposal, said Mon-
day that by guaranteeing. funding
increases, the proposal would have
reduced pressure on the University
to raise tuition.
Experts on education and state
policy like former University Pro-
vost Paul Courant said it is impos-
sible to predict what the proposal's
impact on the University budget
would have been in the long run.
In Ann Arbor, voters in predomi-
nantly student precincts voted 57.41
percent in favor of the proposal.
Several students voting in the
Michigan Union last night said they
learned about the proposal for the
first time when reading the ballot.
LSA freshman Edmund Zagorin
said he hadn't heard much about
it, but ultimately voted for the ini-
tiative because it seemed good for
"I struggled with that one a little
more than Proposal 2," said Zago-
rin, who voted against the initiative
that would have banned affirmative
action programs in Michigan.
First-year MBA student Purvi
Ravani also voted for the proposal.
"I would rather have money ear-
marked for educationthananything
else," she said.

"We wish Michigan the best the
next four years," DeVos said. "There
are many challenges to face. There
are many issues to cover. And we
wish the governor the best."
DeVos, the former chief execu-
tive of direct sales firm Amway,
spent almost $35 million of his own
money on his campaign.
The economy dominated the
race. Michigan has the second
highest unemployment rate in the
nation, and exit polls showed that
four out of five voters think the
state economy is struggling.
In the campaign, DeVos said he
would cut taxes and bureaucracy
to create a more business-friendly
environment in Michigan. Gran-
holm derided this approach, saying
Michigan needed to spend money
on education and infrastructure to
That's what made the differ-
ence for LSA sophomore Gayam de
He said he preferred a candidate
with "the ability to provide more
technology-based jobs." De Silva
voted for Granholm.
Voters in predominantly student
precincts joined dt Silva, voting for
Granholm over DeVos 79.96 to 16.6
Higher education was a central
element of Granholm's campaign.
At campaign stops in Ann Arbor
and on campus in the days before
the election, she emphasized her
plan to use money the state won
in settlements with tobacco com-
panies to give $4,000 to everyone
who graduates from a Michigan
In her victory speech last night,
Granholm said passing the scholar-
ship plan was "the first order of busi-
ness when we get back to Lansing."
DeVos opposed the plan.
Granholm came under fire from
many at the University for slash-
ing higher education funding in
her budgets for the 2004 and 2005
fiscal years. She increased funding
slightly in the 2006 budget.
Ryan Werder, spokesman for the
University's chapter of the College
Democrats, said he was thrilled
with the outcome.
"It's a good day to be a Demo-
crat," he said.
Werder said the College Demo-
crats played a big part in the vic-
"We turned out the vote in an
incredible way, and it's really pay-
ing off," he said. "This campus is
one of Granholm's bases, and we're
thrilled with how it worked out."
Rob Scott, chair of the Uni-
versity's chapter of the College
Republicans, said that while he
was disappointed with the race's
outcome, almost half the state sup-
ported DeVos's message, and that
will resonate in Lansing.
"The state still has a lot of serious
problems," Scott said. "Those didn't
change. Just because there was an
election today doesn't mean those
problems won't be there tomorrow."
