It's time for another episode of "judge the accuracy of that Daily Cal claim":
The ASUC Senate is set to consider a bill tonight that would temporarily reduce student Class Pass fees by $1.50 each semester as the service the fee is meant to pay for is not yet available.That would be awesome!!!
The bill asks for the senate's authorization to send a letter to Ron Coley, the UC Berkeley Associate Vice Chancellor of Business and Administrative Services, detailing reasons for temporarily waiving this portion of the fee until the service is instated.Oh... hmm... let's revise that first bit, with additions in bold:
The ASUC Senate is set to consider a bill tonight that would beg the university administration to temporarily reduce student Class Pass fees by $1.50 each semester as the service the fee is meant to pay for is not yet available.Much better. Let's see what Josh Daniels has to say.
Daniels said that even though the fee is small for each student, he wants to set a precedent for this campus and other UC campuses.Last year, for those of you who don't remember, Josh Daniels pushed a fee increase that would pay for no services at all, in the hopes that maybe the university would throw the students a bone. I guess he decided to set a different precedent this time.
"Students are paying such high fees, they should not be paying for services they are not receiving," he said.
