According to the czar of Denton, @brettvito, North Texas students have voted to increase fees directed towards athletics. The result is a $4.25/semester hour increase and should result in an additional $3.5 million per year for the athletic department and support groups like the band and spirit squads.
55% of students voting approved the increase. The vote was the second such vote after the initial referendum was nullified due to irregularities in the voting process. UTSA recently attempted to pass a similar increase of the per semester hour charge, only to have its vote fail by a rather significant margin.
