2005-2006 Budget Proposal Posted Online

Hey check it out. ASUC student group budgets are up here! The Heuristic Squelch has been allotted $12,075 this year, thus making it yet again the best-funded ASUC publication on campus. I don't think there's a need to question the Squelch's status as most endowed pub, especially given the effort the team has invested this year into soliciting advertisers to complement ASUC funding.

The webmaster has yet again been budgeted for just a $1000 stipend, which I think is ridiculous. It's no wonder that we can't manage to find actual computer science students to fill this duty. This isn't to say that our current webmaster, Varoon, who is a Political Science major, hasn't done an awesome job; but unfortunately, by his own admission, his skills are limited. Luckilly we've been able to do everything we wanted with the website this year (at least from a programming standpoint), but in the long run the versatility and popularity of the website is going to be diminished if we can't hire students with more extensive coding capabilities. Sigh.
