UTenn Students want Bailout, State Income Tax

The message of these "Just University" students seems to boil down to this: If you got it, we want it.

A group of University of Tennessee students will ask UT President John Petersen to support lobbying efforts for a slice of a proposed federal stimulus package to offset state funding cuts.

Members of the Students for a Just University student government party at the school will ask Petersen Tuesday to sign a petition to Gov. Phil Bredesen, asking that he promote the federal stimulus package and support a state income tax.
