Kirk Profit. D-Ypsilanti, has orgunized hearings on what he sees as "excessively high" university textbook prices. Profit, co-chairman of the House of Representatives Higher Education Standing Committee, said that after discussing the issue with state Sen. Don Koi- visto, D-lronwood, and university students he has decided to conduct "investigative hearings." The hearings, which will be open to the public, have been scheduled for Tuesday after the Legislator organizing 'investigative hearings' House session. Profit could not confirm who will be testifying for the committee "Koivisto and I have been concerned about this area for some time." Profit stated in a press release "He has observed as have I, that students appear to be paying top dollar for new and used textbooks and when they attempt to resell the books hack to the bookstores, thev are paid only a small fraction of Iheir original costs." Profit said most university bookstores monopolize the student market. "Students at the post- secondary level are a captive audience," he said in the release. "The college and university marketplace as it is currently set up. offers little in the way of comparison shopping for a student or for the competitive forces of a free market to have their appropriate impact. Michael Turner, manager of the the Bovee University Center Bookstore, said he didn't think the hearings were necessary. "There's no problem with the business," Turner said. "I think (Profiti is on a witch-hunt He's gotten some bad information into this and this simply isn't true " Profit said he didn't believe the problem of overpricing was ■rorse for private bookstores, as opposed to university operated bookstores "We're looking at the the concerns surrounding the issue and we're trying to see if there's a rule the state can play." Profit said "And I'm not sure what the state can do." IfFI Photo Amy Bishop Studying under the sun Kimberly Day.
