LEGISLATION
Continued from Page 1
doing it," Rep. Kwame Kilpatrick (D-Detroit)
said.
Kilpatrick alleged the bill serves no public
service, and that the motives behind its intro-
duction were purely political.
He said he suspects Rogers, whose district
includes the Michigan State University cam-
pus in East Lansing, introduced the bill to
gain an edge in the upcoming November elec-
tions.

"Mike Rogers is trying to suppress the stu-
dent vote," Kilpatrick said, explaining that in
the upcoming election state Republicans
expect college students to support Democratic
candidates.
But Rogers contends the bill will only make
it easier for students to vote, and that
Kilpatrick's allegations are unfounded.
"The bill is all about the integrity of the
voter file," Rogers said.
Bill Knowling, Roger's spokesperson, said
in order for a person to register to vote in Ann
Arbor they would have to change their legal

residence to an Ann Arbor address, but he said
the bill will actually make residence changes
easier.
Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor) said the bill
is questionable in its constitutionality, and
would harm student participation in politics if
passed.
Brater and Kilpatrick both said the bill is
divided along partisan lines, and will pass in
the House because of the Republican majority.
But according to Mike Rogers, this bill is
not a partisan issue, but simply good policy.
He said that an identical bill was presented

to the Senate last year, and passed with over-
whelming bipartisan support, 35 to 1.
"It was good policy last year, and it's goO
policy this year," Rogers said.
Michigan Student Assembly President Bram
Elias said the legislation "almost seems like a
concerted effort to prevent students from vot-
ing."
Elias, an LSA senior, said that since the bill
will force students to change their addresses
every time they move, it may prove to be an
unnecessary hassle and a notion that is out of
touch with student life.
