Although I can't say that I or my fellow democrats will support the plan, I do feel that if there is going to be a sale of MOHELA, if that indeed does happen, that there should certainly be some consideration for the community colleges.

Documents circulated by democratic leaders show 300 million dollars of revenue from the sale would go toward capital improvements, all at state universities and colleges. From the state capitol, I'm Sarah Smithies.
