In a break with the governor's original MOHELA proposal Thursday, House Republicans presented their own wish list.

"I mean there looks like there is a real disagreement, almost a family feud, or a family fight between the republicans in the governor's office and the republicans in the legislature."

Democratic Representative Judy Baker says that currently, confusion reigns on the subject of MOHELA's future. Baker says she wants to see more financial officers, students, parents and stakeholders involved in the process.
