LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A
Senate panel delayed a vote yester-
day on the latest anti-abortion bill,
while one lawmaker proposed an al-
ternative tilted more toward the
pro-choice side.
"We need to review the amend-
ments. I've tentatively scheduled a
meeting for two weeks from to-
day," said Sen. Jack Welborn, (R-
Kalamazoo) chairperson of the
Family Law, Criminal Law and
Corrections Committee.
That panel is studying
Welborn's bill that would require a
24-hour waiting period for abortion.
It also would require doctors to
*provide women with certain infor-
pation before they could have one
of the operations.
Committee members, Right to
Life of Michigjn, and pro-choice
forces are wrestling over whether
the bill and the information should
*"contain language favorable to anti-
"abortion or pro-choice forces.
"What you're looking for is the
*Right to Life perspective in a pam-
phlet," Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-
Lansing) told Edward Rivet, leg-
islative director for Right to Life of
Welborn's bill would require a
doctor to provide a woman the fol-
lowing information at least 24
hours before performing an abor-

anatomical and physiological char-
acteristics, how it will be aborted
and what to do if there are compli-

Daily Administration Reporter
As the University prepares for
President Bush's campus-wide
commencement address and final-

Higher education budget hearings continue

by Bethany Robertson
Daily Government Reporter
State representatives continue to
hear testimony in the House
Subcommittee on Higher Education
this week, although there has been
little dispute over Gov. John
Engler's proposal to increase educa-
tion funding by 4 percent in next
year's budget.

Subcommittee members support 4 percent increase

"Surprising enough, they are in
agreement about the amount of the
appropriation," said Alaina
Campbell, legislative director for
the Michigan Collegiate Coalition
(MCC). "They're targeting the
same amount of money, but they
may put it in a little different for-
Representatives from MCC - a
student lobbying group based in
Lansing - testified at yesterday's
meeting. Campbell said MCC's
most important recommendation
for the subcommittee was the cre-

ation of a periodic review process of
the state's financial aid programs.
"With the House democrats and
Gov. Engler agreeing to a 4 percent
increase in the general fund appro-
priations for public universities,
legislators have expressed an inter-
est in making sure the money is
spent effectively," MCC Chair Guy
Clark said.
Campbell said MCC's proposal
will make the financial aid system
more accountable.
"Legislators appropriate money.
But they never have any extensive

follow-up as to how effective those
programs are," she said. "There are a
lot of glaring inequities that the
state needs to focus on. I think this
would shed significant light on
where the majority of our financial
aid money is going."
Although Engler's 1991-92 bud-
get proposals have been called
"mean-spirited" by many democrats
critical of his social services reduc-
tions, the governor's education pro-
posals face little opposition in the
subcommittee. Many conflicts have
already arisen between the

Republican governor and the
Democrat-controlled House.
"We have to remember this is
the higher education committee,"
Campbell said. "People may get
stingier as the budget process goes
Glenn Stevens, chair of the
Presidents' Council of Michigan's
15 public universities, said the coun-
cil is satisfied with negotiations.
"There's no question that the
higher education community is very
pleased with this as a recommenda-
tion given what is currently happen-
ing with the state budget," he said.

Environmentalism YS

by Gwen Shaffer
Daily Staff Reporter
The environmental movement is
the enemy of human-made power,
the Industrial Revolution, and tech-
nology, said George Reisman, Prof.
of Economics at Pepperdine
University last night.
Reisman advocates Ayn Rand's
theory of Objectivism, which sup-
ports unlimited economic progress,
the profit motive, and free trade.
Reisman's speech "Toxicity of
Environmentalism" was sponsored
by the Michigan Students of
Environmentalists feel hatred
for technological accomplishments,
Reisman said. "(People) believe na-
ture is valuable in and of itself
without benefit from man," he said.
Reisman said restricting oil ex-
ploration in the frozen barren desert
of Alaska because of its "intrinsic
value" serves no purpose, except to
forsake land.
"In pursuit of his well-being,
man destroys nature. It is his pos-
session and use of reason and tech-
nology for which he is hated,"
Reisman said.
Reisman said the environmental
movement works on the premise of
"Environmentalists' satisfac-
tion comes from human terror....
Many of the environmental claims
are false," he said. Based on the ways
asbestos is used, Forbes magazine
reported someone is one-third as
likely to die from asbestos exposure
than being struck by lightening,
Reisman added.
Reisman disputed popular per-
ceptions about the dangers of CFCs,
radiation, and dioxin.
"These claims are made without
any regard for the truth," he said.



"Environmentalists reach for what-
ever is at hand ... and draw infer-
ences not based on science but on
"It is impossible for CFCs to
destroy the ozone because few are
capable of reaching the atmosphere.
There has been an ozone hole since
before CFCs were present,"
Reisman said.
Technology will solve any prob-
lems brought on by industrializa-
tion, Reisman claimed. "The appro-
priate response to global warming
would be to make sure there are
more and better air conditioners."
The environmental movement
maintains that science and technol-
ogy can't be relied upon, Reisman
said. Yet, "the environmental
movement holds that science can
forecast the weather for the next
400 years," he added. "We're being
asked to abandon the Industrial
Revolution based on a weather
Many students heckled Reisman
and voiced their disagreement.
"The student Objectivists are
exploiting Ayn Rand's principles to
justify their greed and apathy to-
ward social issues," LSA junior
Tom Baksik said.
Some students said they agreed
with Reisman.
"Most things he said were
pretty dead-on," Natural Resources
junior Scott Smith said.
