ASUN passes own fund increase
By Melanie Branded
&taff Reporter
ASUN senators approved Wednes
day night student fee increases for
ASUN and the Lied Center, a de
crease for the University Program
Council and no increase for the Daily
The votes were
in line with Com

location recom
I menaations, except
for Daily Nebras
b kan funding. CFA
“ recommended a 10
percent increase ror tne paper.
CFA Chairwoman Jennifer Cusick
said the increase for the Association
of Students of the University of Ne
braska and the decrease for UPC were
attributed to the transfer of $2,000
from UPC’s budget to ASUN for
Homecoming expenses. She said the
majority of ASUN’s fee increase
would be used for salary increases.
Much of the debate during the
meeting centered on the recom
mended increase for the Daily Ne
braskan. That increase would have
raised student fee allocations, which
pay for printing and circulation costs,
from 88 cents to 97 cents per student
per semester.
Dave Milligan, speaker of the sen
ate, made a motion for an amend
ment to deny the Daily Nebraskan an
Milligan said the newspaper’s re
quest for an increase, based on rising
newsprint costs, conflicted with its
long-term goal to operate without
using student fees.
Because the Daily Nebraskan is a
business, he said, it should raise ad
vertising rates or charge for newspa
pers circulated off-campus to make
up the difference.
The motion passed 19-10 with one
Other senators expressed support
for an increase.
David Hengen, a College of Arts
and Sciences senator, motioned for a
second amendment that would have
given the newspaper a 5 percent in
crease, which would have raised the
student fee allocation to 92 cents. He
said the Daily Nebraskan’s overall
quality would go down if it was de
nied a fee increase.
The motion failed by a vote of 11
19. Senators then voted on the original
amendment a second time, passing the
0 percent increase by a vote of 21-9.

“While these are not areas that were
identified in our study, we do have
significant strength in them.
“We will offer these courses in the
manner most convenient to Micron,
including on-site delivery by faculty.”
Included in the accelerated plan is
the development of an information
sciences program that eventually
could develop into a college, he said.
UNO Chancellor Del Weber said
high-tech companies, like Micron,
were looking for degree offerings,
continuing education, applied re
search and a trained labor force. Flex
ibility and commitment to industry
go beyond that, he said.
Faculty and programs for infor
mation sciences already exist at UNO,
he said. The programs would be coor
dinated with engineering courses,
Weber said, but separate from the
UNL Chancellor Graham Spanier
said talk had circulated about creat
ing a construction engineering pro
gram. Spanier also promised to open
lab facilities and provide faculty for
joint projects.
Smith said costs already were a
part of the requested budget. The
request includes a $1.5 million an
nual budget increase and $600,000 to
hire seven engineering faculty and
renovate Omaha engineering facili
The latter request is expected to
be doubled following a review by the
Coordinating Commission for
Postsecondary Education, Smith said.
Plans are also in the works for a
multimillion dollar engineering build
ing to be located at UNO.
Omaha is one of three locations in
competition for the Micron plant.
Smith said NU would continue die
fast-paced upgrade regardless of the
corporation’s decision.
“The rate of implementation has
been a subject of concern to the busi
ness community in Omaha,” Smith

a battle between senators who wished
to see LB830 pass quickly and sena
tors who wanted to improve the lan
guage of the bill before voting on it.
Those supporting the bill over
came several attempts by the bill’s
opponents to filibuster.
Senators’ nerves became frazzled
by 10:30 p.m., following one failed
motion to adjourn. While a motion to
end debate on the bill was on the
table, Sen. Tim Hall of Omaha, who
had two more amendments to intro
duce, gave up.
“Just run the damn thing,” he said.
“You’ve got the votes — go ahead
and do it.”
Several amendments were passed
earlier in the evening.
Sen. George Coordsen of Hebron
sponsored an amendment providing
two types of notification to land own
ers whose property would be declared
blighted or substandard. One was
through a general newspaper ad, and
the other was through a letter mailed
to each property owner.
A sunset clause by Sen. Don
Wesely of Lincoln would not allow
new applications under LB830 after
Feb. 1,2000.
