The ASWSU senate has to tighten down on its budget as it approaches the end of the fiscal year.

Amita Jain, the senate finance director, said in a senate meeting Wednesday evening that ASWSU was working with about $6,000 for the remainder of the fiscal year.

The ASWSU senate turned down a funding request of $1,250 in a 15-4 vote to the WSU Museum of Art Wednesday night due to budget constraints.

“April is by large the most highly populated month for events,” said Kevin Massimino, ASWSU vice president. “There’s a lot of events, and we are at the end of the year where there’s not a lot of money left, so you have to pick and choose, in a sense.”

The Museum of Art will still receive funding of $625 that was approved earlier by the senate finance committee. Funding requests less than $700 that go through ASWSU do not go to the senate floor.

After reviewing the itemized budget list, the $625 that was approved by the senate finance committee was for necessary things, while the other half was for a lot of low-budget accessories that would not necessarily be imperative for the event, said Sen. Dylan Heyne.

The Museum of Art can still get the other half of funding from the Residence Hall Association.

“A lot of people don’t know this, ASWSU is one of seven or eight entities on campus that has funds for programming,” Massimino said. “RHA has a programing line item just like senate does.”
