California Review Staffer
At AS meeting, BSU in force protesting the removal of Kwanzaa funding (due to them not filling out the required paperwork).
Wafa explains that they will fund Kwanzaa, but through different means.
BSU doesn’t care, they feel they aren’t being shown respect.
BSU has been speaking for well over 5 min., but AS doesn’t care

***Update (12:25am): senator stipends now only $10 a week, however AS President and VP’s can’t cut their own stipends because they were “finalized in the spring budget”
Each AS office has been cut at least 10% except VP external.
“With a vote of 17 – 9 – 1, SunGod will be receiving the same amount as last year. This overruled the AS President’s reduction of over $21,000.”
