The Student Services Finance Committee approved the budget for the Black Voice and heard budget presentations for Student Veterans of America and Sex Out Loud, Monday night.

At the start of the meeting, SSFC Chair Tessa Reilly said she had received an email from the Student Leadership Program requesting an exemption to SSFC rules to allow them to spend their advertising budget towards promoting their non-SSFC funded events.

Under current rules, student organizations can only use SSFC advertising funding to promote events if the event is funded by the General Student Services Fund.

Reilly said she would gather more information on ASM financial rules to see if such an exemption would violate UW’s financial policies before moving forward with any new legislation.
