Senate Funds $1,590 to PRSSA

Senate heard from the Finance Committee during yesterday’s meeting [.docx]. A request to suspend the rules lead to Senate funding PRSSA $1,590. PRSSA originally requested $3,180

Normally funding requests are a two-week process:

  1. The organization meets with the Finance Committee
  2. Finance Committee makes a recommendation to Senate about how much they should fund (based on standard funding policies [.doc])
  3. Senate votes on the funding request a week later

Suspending the rules lets Senate vote on the request a week early and gets the money to the organization faster.

Funding Requests Up for Vote Next Week:

  • APALSA: originally requested $2,200. FC recommends funding $1,100.
  • TSA: originally requested $500. FC recommends funding $150.
  • The Muddler: originally requested $1,000. FC recommends funding $400.
  • The Medieval Club: originally requested $450. FC recommends funding $450
