A government that cannot account for money? I am shocked!
All levels of government cannot properly handle money! From The College Fix:
At the University of California, Los Angeles, nearly three million dollars in student fees used by two major student government organizations has gone unaccounted for in public records.
About $9 million in yearly student fees goes to UCLA’s Undergraduate Students Association Council, divided among various organizations and programs. The Daily Bruin reported earlier this month that $2.7 million divided between the Campus Retention Committee and the Student Initiated Outreach Committee has essentially gone missing, with no records to indicate what that money was used for. That represents roughly 30 percent of the total student government budget.
The retention committee oversees initiatives, projects, and services within the Student Retention Center to aid undergraduates with social and cultural transitions as well as academic problems. The outreach committee, meanwhile, works to “empower [students] to take their academic and life goals into their own hands.” Initiatives promoted by that committee include American Indian Recruitment, Pacific Islander Education and Retention, and Students Heightening Academic Performance Through Education.
Currently, each UCLA undergraduate is paying about $262 per year to fund the student government.
