MAS Dues

$3,000

$2475

Supplemental

Background: Montana Associated Students funds a lobbiest every legislative session. Due to improper budgeting our dues this year went up to $3000 dollars. This is a one time expence and should go back down next year. It is important that we pay our MAS dues as that is what allows us to be voting members on that body. MAS has significant influence over the Board of Regents and helps select the student regent every year.

Request: $3000 to help fund the MAS lobbiest for the year.

Impact and Implementation: Allows MAS to have a lobbiest at the legislature this year and allows ASMSU to continue to have a voice in MAS.
