Assembly unanimously approves USUAA proposed budget

The USUAA Assembly has approved the USUAA 2011 fiscal year budget in a unanimous passage during the past two Assembly meetings, which took place Friday, April 2 and 9. The USUAA Finance Committee worked long hours in order to draw up the budget of $264,728 of student fee money in combination with $36,428 carried forward from the prior year. This budget will be spent through multiple programs and events through committees such as legislative Affairs, Sustainability, Club Council…etc.

The USUAA budget approval was tabled twice over a three-week period of time in an attempt to make the best and most informed decisions in the budget approval process. In addition to completing the USUAA budget process, the assembly demonstrated endorsement for the campus organizations: The university radio station KRUA, the UAA Concert Board and The Northern Light newspaper each which have their own fee collecting areas.
