' rr7cT 3T But mx Vol. 6 No. 14 UTAH TKCHNICAL COLLEGE. AT PKOVO January 30, 1978 New Bill in Congress Council Urges New Board of Governors by Merri Bilbrey The governence for Utah Technical College has been boiling in the legislature for some time now. The student council, under the direction of Lori Hart, studentbody vice-president, is trying to get it brought to the fore in the current session.

It comes courtesy of the new press recently added to the printing equipment in UTC P's print room. One of the greatest assets of the new press, according to Stephen Adams, who is in charge of the print room, is that it has a capacity of printing a sheet of paper 20 inches by 26 inches. Mr. Adams feels that the advantages of the new press are immense. "There is almost tried to keep tabs on everything going on. She said that the biggest problem concerning the bill would be to bring it up in this session of the legislature. "This is a budgetry session, and we need 23 vote to get a nonbudgetory item brought up," she said. One step the student council has taken is to send out 104 letters to members of the state legislature, according to Mi&s Hart. Basically the letters introduce the student council of UTCP outline the bill, and urge the various legislators to vote for it. Miss Hart pointed out that if the bill is brought out of the committee and onto the floor, the student couscil would like to sec the galleries packed with nothing that we can't print now," he said. Along with allowing the print room a larger format to work with, they can also print four pages at a time, which greatly speeds up the printing processes. Damon White is in charge of the new press. He's been with the print room for six years. The press can also be used to provide students in the Graphic program a larger format to learn on. "It's given us a whole new horizon," said Mr. Adams. students from UTC' P and UTC of the problems in getting the bill onto the floor is the time limit imposed on the legislators. This session is designated to be a shorter session than most. It will go until Friday at midnight. They will have to get through the budgetory items first and then go onto other things. Miss Hart said that they needed to get enough push to get the bill onto the floor as a priority item. She indicated that the House is already won over, but the Senate would be a little more difficult. She also urged the students to write to their legislators and let them know how they feel about the bill. r Bruce Carter, Assistant Registrar "My first consideration is that it is passed this year. I would really hate to see it wait another year. It is being dragged on and on and on. 1 would really like to get it over with and let our college move onto the business of being a school." said Miss Hart. The bill would also create some new problems, according to Miss Hart. "If it is passed, it is the end of that struggle, but we will become involved in a new struggle to get money and allocations from the Board of Regents and not end up on the bottom of the totem pole," she said.
