A.S. committee mulls changes in 2007-08 budget language

The Associated Students Finance Committee members discussed next year’s annual budget language and made recommendations totaling $5,540 at Monday’s finance meeting.

Director of Finance Adam Haverstock discussed possible changes to next year’s budget language. One possible revision includes allowing students to purchase airfare tickets to their events on the day they turn in their funding requests with the knowledge that if the recommendations are approved they will be reimbursed.

Another change discussed was the increase from $400 to $500 to be allocated toward travel when requesting funds from the Academically Related Reserve Fund.

The committee then discussed the advantages and disadvantages of changing the budget to include allocations to go toward food served at certain events.

Haverstock also proposed the possibility of allocating funds to selective member groups. The funds would be dispersed on the condition that the planned events are open to all CSUN students.

These are possible changes that the committee will review over the next few weeks before a finalized annual budget and budget language is formed.
