KPU, SUB get increased funding from Undergraduate Senate

The Undergraduate Senate increased next year's budgets of the Kennedy Political Union and the Student Union Board to their highest levels ever in a vote April 14.

KPU will receive $202,750, an increase of $18,750 in the fiscal 2013 budget, and SUB will also receive $202,750, an increase of $21,750.

The hope is that the money will allow these groups to continue to bring high-quality events to campus, Chairman of the Special Committee on Finance Brett Atanasio said.

The entire spending budget of Student Government will total $656,000, which is an increase of $26,000 from fiscal 2013. The increase is partially due to Senate's movement of $8,000 from savings accounts to spending on April 7.

"It's the largest budget SG has ever had, dollar-wise," Atanasio said.

The budget gave every part of SG the amount of money it requested, if not more, according to Atanasio.

"This budget represents ingenuity, creativity and considerable effort by both the executives and the Special Committee on Finance," Atanasio said.

The budget was quickly passed with little opposition. Only two senators voted against it.

"I was expecting a battle," Speaker of the Undergraduate Senate Alex Iannacio said.
