Len Wolfe Featured in mLive’s Coverage of Proposed Michigan Education Reform

January 25, 2012

Testimony over a proposed bill, that would allow two-year colleges in Michigan to award four-year degrees, was recently heard before Michigan’s Senate Education Committee. Director of Dykema’s Regulated Industries Department, Len Wolfe, was on hand at the Committee’s session to provide comment, which was covered by mLive on January 25, 2012. While supporters of the bill (HB 4496) claim it would provide more affordable means of achieving degrees, Wolfe cautioned that the bill may violate Michigan’s constitution. Said Wolfe, “colleges would essentially nave to become universities, with boards appointed by the governor, no set boundaries and no property tax revenue,” changes that may be unfeasible in the current environment.
