Amount Requested: $80,000

1$80,000Main Motion161017
Decision Rationale:
Although Treasury noted that it would be wary of funding an effort that in its eyes should be fully covered by the University under normal circumstances, it also appreciates the uniqueness of the situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic.  In realizing this, Treasury decided to approve the transfer from the SU Carryforward Account to WashU’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

Good job everyone!  For new reps, congratulations on finishing your first appeal and I’m looking forward to many more!Zach
Everyone did an amazing job tonight, I loved to see the nuance that we applied as a body to the appeal even though we ended up funding the appeal in full.  Stay safe everyone!Fadel
Tomorrow is National Census Day so make sure that y’all participate.Otto
