"The Attorney General
obviously has a lot to do. We have

legislators to reconsider this bill and
strike it from the books." Stallings
said. "I want to get the

students together and talk to
individual legislators. Every

"We're just one campus of a
multi-campus system and the nature of
the change and its effect on us. if there is
any, is impossible to predict." he said.
"It's possible that the chancellor could
become more of an outside figure in the
state. Some of the power vested with the
president could be given the chancellor or
some tak'en away. The office of the
chancellor is now a tenuous one."
