Big news!

Senator Rizzo announced that SB51 has been amended to remove the funding aspect from the bill. Currently, the only "resolved" clause says something about fixing the bylaws. While having bylaws that don't suck may be important, I would hope it would happen without a bill anyway. (By the way, I don't share the opinion that the system failed over the summer. I actually think the system worked the way it was supposed to)

The punchline of this is that, as it stands, SB51 will not provide any money to the Executives. Donald Rizzo explained that while he supported the old bill, he believed it wasn't able to pass in the Senate, and thus amended it to something he thought would pass.

In response to a question from Senator Lisa Ang about future action to reimburse the Executives, Rizzo said that it was his "understanding" that this was "the end of it." He also suggested that the Executives might try to reopen the case, but thought it was very unlikely.

That said, I have a hard enough time taking these Senators at their word, much less at their "understanding." I don't believe it's safe to assume this is over.

Very interesting.

With all the stories you break, Ben should just set calstuff.com to link here.
man, i feel kinda giddy....
In a way, I'm a little sad that the "blatant disrespect for students" part has left the bill-- at least we're not an entirely apathetic student body anymore... of course, now my question is... what's the point of SB51 now?
