lobbying push

Editorial Editor

Durirg the early '705, State Rep.
Ernesto Scorsone remembers when
students were fighting for the right
to have a voting student member on
each of the state's universities’
board of trustees.

Because the students effectively
lobbied state officials, a voting stu-
dent member was placed on each

Scorsone told a group of about 30
students from four state universities
yesterday at the UK Faculty Club
that he hopes they are just as en-
ergetic as the students of the ‘705

Yesterday‘s event marked the
kickoff of the UK Student Govern-
ment Association ‘5 lobbying effort.

David Botkins, co-chairman of
SGA's lobbying effort, said he was
satisfied with the event, though he
would have liked to have seen a
larger turnout among UK students.
“It’s really refreshing to see stu-
dents who are concerned with edu-
cation in our state,“ he said.

With higher education facing a
budget shortfall of about 89.4 mil-
lion, Scorsone said it is imperative
that students across the state join
together to lobby the General As»
sembly for higher education.

When the Kentucky Council on
Higher Education was considering a
midyear tuition increase earlier this
fall, Scorsone said the opposition

Hutt said in his letter that when he

health problems, but that he was not
