As promised in the above live blog, those Finance Committee funding requests concerned Dream Big Soccer and the University Libertarians.
Dream Big Soccer requested $355, but FC recommended funding $0. Senate approved the FC’s recommendation.
University Libertarians requested $2,200 to send six people to a conference, but FC recommended funding $0. Finance Chair Janet Leung told Senate at the Nov. 30 meeting that “there was a lot of misinformation, and don’t have a very large presence on campus.” Senate approved the FC’s recommendation.

Senate also welcomed new senator Soniyyah Blue (Perkins).
