The fee increase will be voted for today. I hope I don't see anyone who votes for this fee increase later demand lower fees.

By the way, some Senators seem to take the view that, since it's a referendum, they should vote for it so that the students can have their say. This is silly for two reasons.

First, the Senate needs to act as a filter of sorts. After this fee failed, do we really have to run a campaign to defeat it yet again, because the Senators want students to have their say every fucking year?

Second, the Constitution requires the Senate to approve the referenda. If the role of the Senate was to just rubberstamp every referendum so students could vote for it, why bother having them vote on it at all? The idea is that students should be forced to deal with it only if the elected officials approve it. We elect them, supposedly, to represent us, not pass every decision on to us.

here here!!! For all of certain senators' talk about representing students, that doesn't make that much sense if the senators then believe they should stop representing their constituents' interests, and just shove another stupid referendum down their throats because students should get a chance to do what they elected the senators to do already.
