2003-04 WHEG-WTC PROGRAM FORMULA
The WHEG-WTC formula, Simulation 3 ($7,500 student budget minus EFC) X 13% = $975 maximum award, was approved March 25, 2003. The Board was asked to reconsider the formula. Simulation 4 ($7,500 student budget minus EFC) X 14% = $1,050 maximum award, commits funds at a faster rate but it maintains the current award and meets a greater percentage of calculated financial need. A motion by Ann Neviaser to reconsider the approved WHEG-WTC formula, Simulation 3, was seconded by Andre Jacque. The motion passed unanimously. A Motion by Andre Jacque to re-vote on the WHEG-WTC approved formula, Simulation 3, was seconded by Sandra Dercole. The motion was defeated, 8-1. A motion by Debra McKinney to accept WHEG-WTC formula, Simulation 4, was seconded by Ann Neviaser. The motion passed unanimously.

2003-04 WHEG-UW PROGRAM FORMULA
The approved WHEG-UW formula, Simulation 2 ($3,854-EFC) X 47% = $1,800 maximum award, was approved February 28, 2003. An alternate WHEG-UW formula, Simulation 3 ($3,854 student budget minus EFC) X 50% = $1,927 maximum award, was presented. The alternate formula would be used if the Governor's proposed budget, which includes an increase in WHEG-UW funds, is passed and the $1,800 maximum WHEG award is lifted. A motion by Andre Jacque to suspend the rules for reconsideration at the next legislative meeting was seconded by Sandra Dercole. The motion carried 6-3. A motion by Mary Jo Green to reconsider the WHEG-UW formula was seconded by Barbara Manthei. The motion carried 8-1. Andre Jacque proposed that a friendly amendment be added to the existing 2003-04 WHEG-UW formula. There was no second and no action was taken on the amendment. A motion by Mary Jo Green to reconsider the WHEG-UW formula was seconded by Barbara Manthei. The motion passed 8-1. A motion by Andre Jacque to attach a hostile amendment to the approved 2003-04 WHEG-UW formula, Simulation 2, that Simulation 3 would be used in the event additional funds become available and the $1,800 maximum WHEG award is changed. The motion was seconded by Debra McKinney and passed unanimously.
