Laminating costs delay project

The continually postponed residence hall displays project heads through another hoop with the formerly excluded lamination costs up for funding at this week’s ASUA Senate meeting. The project is Sen. Chad Travis’ first senate project of the year. It is one of several monetary requests and ASUA appointments that require full senate approval.

As both item #S10093 and #S10096 are on the agenda, the $58.10 lamination costs were excluded from the first funds approval for the posters to reduce costs.

Discussions between the Residence Hall Association and Travis with poster placement caused the delay in posting them until this point, according to Travis.

Travis had hoped for the posters to be up by the end of last month.

Monday’s appropriation board consent agenda, the week’s rundown of clubs which have requested and received funding, which approved only $1,364.79 of the $8,689.85 request, also needs senate approval at the meeting.

Carlita Cotton, proposed appropriations board director and psychology undergraduate student, awaits senate approval Wednesday.

The board, including seven directors who review and grant requests, “”allocates approximately $150,000 to different clubs and organizations to help their efforts to contribute to the campus community,”” according to the ASUA website.

More appointments in the presidential cabinet round out the week’s new additions to ASUA — with the ASUA Supreme Court gaining two new members.

Adam Dippel and Emily Ward, two James E. Rogers College of Law students, would act as judges on the ASUA Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court “”has jurisdictions over all appropriate matters concerning, but not limited to, campus organizations, election disputes, and ASUA governmental affairs,”” according to the ASUA website.
