Commitee members, court appointee approved by A.S.

It was business as usual at the weekly A.S. Senate meeting on Tuesday.

One of the agenda items addressed was approving people to join A.S. committees and an appointment to the judicial court.

Albert De La Rosa was approved to join the finance committee. Christian Bishop was approved to join the elections committee, and Max Franco was appointed to the judicial court.

Later, funding was approved for Zeta Beta Tau fraternity’s for marketing, table and chair expenses.

The fraternity is holding a Powderpuff Football Tournament fundraising event to be held on Dec. 1 to raise money for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

“I think this is a good thing to support for public awareness,” Sen. David Zusman said.

Zusman asked for an additional $1,500, increasing the total amount allocated to $2,500.

David Koh, a member of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity, stood in front of the committee and said, “David Hill’s nephew died of SIDS at the age of two months.”

The A.S. Senate ended up approving $2,000 for the fundraising event.

“I just want to say thank you for supporting powderpuff. It should be a lot of fun,” Sen. Amanda Lynch said.

The Society of Automotive Engineers was granted $7,000 for the Formula SAE Competition.

“Last year, when we competed, we placed seventh out of 80 schools,” Matt Powell from the Society of Auto Engineers said.

Powell showed the senators the award the team won last year and presented them with a certificate for helping fund their team.

“I know how much hard work the senators put into hearing students,” said David Gonzales, who is also from The Society of Automotive Engineers and a participant in the competition. “We are looking for your support for this year’s competition.”

Sen. Byron Baba said, “The Society of Automotive Engineers really made an effort to connect with the senators by taking us driving with them in their cars.”

“I believe we should allocate $7000 for the upcoming competition,” Baba said.

Next on the agenda was allocating the department of Cinema and Television Arts $500 for equipment and for the filming of a short movie in January 2008.

The senate also approved an allocation of $600 to Phi Alpha Delta for two of their fraternity members to attend a pre-law conference in November.

The Matador Boxing Team also asked for $1,750 so they could attain a USA amateur boxing license, licensing fees, USA amateur boxing coach certification and marketing.

Sen. Gershon Feit said, “I believe we should allocate $1,750 to the boxing team.”

Marshall Richey said, “Thank you for your support. We would like to make more noise on campus for the boxing team.”

The senate approved an allocation of $1,750 to the boxing team.

Other allocations that were approved were $1,600 for the Student Finance Associations Career Preparation Meetings, career fair and annual banquet.

The senate approved $600 for the Residential Life and University Conference Services Jamaica service trip and $750 was approved to finance a public lecture in November on “The Gospel of Judas and the Shaping of Christianity.”

Last on the agenda was University Advisor Tom Piernik speaking about the third annual Parent’s Day at CSUN, informing senators that there was a good turnout.

“I think Parent’s Day helps parents understand their sons and daughters experiences at college better,” Peirnik said.

Three more individuals will be approved to join the A.S. Senate at next week’s meeting, and changes to the finance budget language would also be addressed on Oct. 30.
