The honor system will be promised $16,500 in funding each year if a new bill moving through Student Congress is approved next week.
Tuesday evening, the bill passed through the finance and rules and judiciary committees, and will be discussed next week during a full session of Student Congress.
The honor system needs at least $18,000 for operating costs, said Jon McCay, the undergraduate student attorney general. McCay said approximately 70 percent of the money goes to paper resources.
“Case files can be 50 to 150 pages long plus copies. It adds up,” he said.
He added that phone lines and student outreach efforts represent additional costs.
