Rec Sports met last night with the ASM Judiciary Committee to discuss final ballot language for the Master Plan referendum on ASM Student Elections. UW-Madison students will have the opportunity to vote for or against new Rec Sports facilities on March 3-5. Educate yourself about the plan by reading through this blog (we suggest starting with the About the Plan and FAQs pages)
Clarification from The Daily Cardinal article that covered the story:
The article states that “the Student Judiciary recommended Rec Sports revise the referendum to include a brief summary of the Master Plan and a request to support or deny an increase in student segregated fees up to $127.11 million, which is 58 percent of the total cost.”
Students will be asked to support a maximum of 57 percent of the total project cost, estimated at $223 million. This amounts to an increase of no more than $108 per semester in student segregated fees. 57 percent is comparable to the proportion Rec Sports receives annually in its budget from seg fees.
