The disputed differential, and
whether the union should retain

in an impasse between the

During floor debate, several
members of Congress expressed
concern that the government was
dictating a settlement.
Rep. James Florio, D-N.J.,
proposed a 140-day cooling:off

After that defeat, Florio expressed

president for administration.
The action was also taken as the result of a
dramatic increase in the number of requests
to use the Penn State name and symbols for
commercial goods and services, Grubb said.
Lovette said his office was getting two or
three requests a week to use the University's
name for all types of things.
"It's unbelievable the number of people that
are trying to get into this act," he said.
The University was a little behind some
other major universities in registering its
name, Lovette said.
"We were getting so many requests for
licenses from people because the other
universities require them and they figured we
did too," he said.
In the future, any requests to use the
University's name and symbols will be
reviewed and if the proposed use is
satisfactory to the University, a license
agreement will be worked out that will impose
