More Money for Students?
Tax exemption bill would reduce book expenses
By Aeron Ives
AB 2051 is a bill coming up for vote that would make the purchase of college textbooks exempt from state sales tax if the textbook is required by an instructor at a community college, University of California, or California State University campus. This measure would save students money, as they would not have to pay tax on their books. In order to support this bill, contact any one of the following...

Unz Initiative Opposed: The student senate has taken a position of unanimous opposition to Proposition 227 (also known as the Unz Initiative). This Proposition, on the ballot in June, would eliminate the current system of bilingual instruction in schools, in favor of a system deemed too experimental and rigid. Visit the ASMC Office for information on this, or any other, initiative.
