    Explanatory Statement

          The Bicycle Programs and Infrastructure Fee is used to fund bike-related projects at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Use of the funds includes but is not limited to improving bike infrastructure, expanding bike parking, creating safety courses and materials for bike encouragement and education, and creating a bike storage program. The funds are managed by Facilities & Services, whose annual budget for the fee is approved by the Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC). The amount of the fee, currently $1.00 each fall, spring, and summer semester, is subject to review by SFAC and approval by the University administration and Board of Trustees. As a student-initiated fee, this fee is subject to a review by student referendum at least once every four years. The next referendum on this fee will be in spring 2023.


  2. Students for Equal Access to Learning (SEAL) Fee Renewal Referenda Questions

    The final version for the student ballot about the renewal of the Bicycle Programs and Infrastructure Fee is attached.  CSEC accepted all of the recommended changes. The goals for this revision are to clearly inform the voter about how the fee will be assessed and spent, to appropriately frame the result of the vote as advisory, and to introduce consistency across other referenda questions on fee renewal.
