ASUA approves funding for Homecoming floats

The ASUA Senate approved almost $800 to fund the building of Homecoming floats and voting awareness efforts at last night's meeting.

The Freshman Class Council received $600 to help fund the building of the ASUA Homecoming float.

The senate also approved $180 to fund a shuttle service to take students to the polls for the upcoming City Council election. Funding for handbills and the City Council forum was also included in this amount.

The ASUA Speakers Board offered to pay for a banner advertising the voting efforts after the senate threatened to vote it down. The senate agreed to fund the board's City Council forum in exchange for the board paying for the banner.

After last night's spending, the senate budget has $3,600 left out of $8,639 for projects for the rest of the year.
