ASUA approves funding for Solar marketing

The ASUA Senate approved nearly $400 for Project Solar marketing efforts at last night's meeting.

A total of $165 will go toward funding a competition between Greek Life, clubs and residence halls to drum up funds for the project to place solar panels on UA buildings. Another $230 was unanimously approved to go toward fliers, table flags and handbills promoting Project Solar.

In other business, the senate unanimously approved $35 to fund the printing of surveys that will be distributed by ASUA members in an effort to ascertain an interest in Spanish articles in the Arizona Daily Wildcat.
