It’s all about the money
Zakurdaew sponsored legislation “SB 179-003 Startup Funding for Student Organizations and Clubs.” The bill would allocate $300 from senate projects to the Leadership Involvement and Volunteer Experience. The leadership program, located in the Wood Center, would give new clubs $25 each. LIVE would manage the money with the goal being to find out how clubs are spending their funding. The bill was sent to the student affairs committee.
Even engineers need money
Golub and Zakurdaew sponsored “SB 179-004 Startup Funding for SAE.” The bill would allocate $8,000 to the UAF chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers. The student organization would use the money to cover things such as transportation to competitions. They receive money for competitions but only after they have competed. SAE would use the money at the beginning of the spring semester and refill the account once they have finished their competitions. The legislation was sent to the student affairs committee.
O’Scannell sponsored legislation “SB 179-002 Nanook Terrain Park.” The legislation would allocate $50,000 towards the new campus terrain park that is expected to open at the beginning of the spring semester. The senate debated over whether to allocate the money before the park was constructed or after. The senate tabled the discussion until the next senate meeting on Sunday, Sept. 30.
