The Board of the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority holds what some have called its Mulligan vote on approving Governor Matt Blunt’s proposal to sell off a share of MOHELA’s assets. The initial vote that approved the proposal was criticized because it allegedly violated Missouri’s Sunshine Law. In fact, the Attorney General filed a lawsuit over the allegations. Friday, everything regarding the proposal was out in the open, from public comment to Board discussion to the actual vote. Among those offering comment was University of Missouri student Justin Stanek, who supports the idea of putting a lot of money into buildings and infrastructure. Opponents fear the sale of assets will harm the ability of MOHELA to provide loans to needy students. Despite concerns, the Board voted unanimously – 7-0 – to approve the proposal. The details will now be worked out by the Legislature.
