DASB Senate approves funding for student lobbyists and water polo team

The DASB Senate at its meeting on Wednesday Oct. 9 approved funding for two student intern lobbyists to represent De Anza College students in Sacramento.

The $6,100 budgeted for this program would allow two students to track bills and contact California representatives on issues affecting De Anza students.

“I believe this is a great investment for De Anza,” said Nupur Mehta, head of the finance committee.

The senate voted to allocate an additional $1,500 to the De Anza water polo team for travel to tournaments, and to waive a stipulation which caps the amount of funding teams receive for away tournaments.

Budget cuts have forced all away games to be condensed into tournaments, and under the current budget, the team is restricted to only three away tournaments.

The meeting concluded with a unanimous vote to approve the DASB budget goals for the 2014-2015 school year.
