Remarks FAILED - No further information is available about this resolution.
Whereas Employment by Student Publications (i.e. The Shorthorn) is not a requirement for graduation in any department at UTA; and
Whereas Employment by Student Publications is an extra-curricular activity for the student; and
Whereas Some students employed by Student Publications are allowed to used reserved parking spaces; and
Whereas The parking spaces are reserved for Student Publications twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year and are also a tow away zone; and
Whereas These parking spaces were taken away from the student body at UTA without any input from the student body; and
Whereas Students who are allowed to use these reserved parking spaces for their work at Student Publications are on many occasions coming to school, parking in reserved spaces and then walking straight to their classes, and by using these reserved parking spaces for their own personal parking those students are clearly demonstrating that these spaces are not needed for the operation of Student Publications, and abuses of the reserved parking spaces is not a new problem but has in fact been ongoing for quite some time and has been reported many times in the past, and abuses of parking privileges by students working for Student Publications should not be tolerated, and no other extra-curricular activities and organizations are given reserved parking. It is unfair to the general student body and other organizations to continue this unnecessary and bourgeois eliteist practice.
Be It Further Resolved That The reserved parking privileges granted to Student Publications should be rescinded and those parking spaces should be returned to the general student populations; and
Be It Further Resolved That It is our opinion Student Publications will not cease operations or have undo hardship brought upon itself because of the loss of these parking spaces.
