Funds allow for one more FlashFest act this semester

The Undergraduate Student Senate passed emergency legislation yesterday re-authorizing the use of $31,940 previously allocated to the Financial Management Association for the Motion City Soundtrack concert.

Executive Director Ross Miltner said the concert was supposed to be in early March, but scheduling conflicts prohibited Motion City Soundtrack from coming to Kent State.

The emergency legislation allows the money to be put in the USS budget for use at this year’s FlashFest, thus by-passing the Allocations Committee’s guidelines that stipulate programming money must be requested six weeks in advance of the event.

“We don’t want all that money to roll over to next year,” he said.

Miltner said he will work with Tom Simpson, assistant director of campus life, and the Center for Student Involvement to bring another act to FlashFest in April.
