The Associated Students Program of the University of California at Riverside shall be herein referred to as the ASPB.
WHEREAS, the demand for bigger and better events by the students is an important aspect for programming campus entertainment; and
WHEREAS, students are deserving of large concerts, films, cultural, and special events; and

WHEREAS, this will allow students to have a more enjoyable and fulfilling experience at the University of California at Riverside; and
THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED THAT, the Student Senate of ASUCR proposes this referendum to the 2001-2002 Elections Ballot.
