Students group scales back but still plans a role

A bill signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer bars the Board of Regents from collecting student fees for organizations not part of the university system.
The association has been getting nearly all of its money from a $2 fee that students paid each semester.
The legislation was proposed in the wake of the association’s donation of $122,000 to an unsuccessful campaign for a state sales tax increase.
According to The Arizona Republic, ASA Executive Director Casey Dresher says the group is losing staff but will continue to have a role in informing students about legislation and other matters affecting them.
