Ticketing policies are necessary for keeping students accountable for their behavior. (47%, 252 Votes)
The change is a good start, but similar changes should be pursued in districts across the country in order to keep students out of the criminal justice system. (24%, 128 Votes)

In the wake of a water main break on Sunset Boulevard that flooded parts of the UCLA campus, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has suggested a 2 percent hike in water fees to pay for more frequent pipe replacements. How do you feel the LADWP should address the break?
The 2 percent hike is well worth speeding up pipe replacements and avoiding a costly break like the one on Sunset Boulevard. (46%, 114 Votes)
LADWP should seek alternative funds, such as raising bonds or seeking federal and state grants, to replace the pipes, but they shouldn't hike water rates for residents. (39%, 96 Votes)
The water main break was an accident that no one could have predicted. Increasing replacements would inconvenience residents with traffic and higher water rates. (10%, 25 Votes)
I do not know how I feel about this matter.
An original version of this poll contained an error and has been changed. LADWP's funding from the city comes directly from fees to residents.(5%, 13 Votes)

Parts of the UCLA campus flooded July 29 when a water main on Sunset Boulevard burst, releasing about 20 million gallons of water. UCLA has said that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power should be financially responsible for the resulting damages to campus structures. Who do you think should pay for the damages?
LADWP should pay for the damages, since it was their oversight that caused the line to break. (87%, 278 Votes)
The pipe-break was a random accident that no one is responsible for. UCLA should actively raise money to cover whatever damages insurance does not pay for. (9%, 29 Votes)
I do not know how I feel about this matter. (3%, 9 Votes)
LADWP is not responsible for the break. UCLA should enact a student fee to repair the buildings that students use. (1%, 3 Votes)

Twenty percent of enrolled freshmen at the UC this year are not California residents. As the number of out-of-state students at UC campuses has continued to rise, some officials have considered capping the number at 10 percent. How do you feel about this?
The UC is increasing the number of out-of-state students it accepts because they pay more tuition, and this is unfair. The number should be capped at 10%. (40%, 209 Votes)
While out-of-state students may take away some acceptances from California students, they diversify the UC population. (35%, 185 Votes)
Those higher higher tuition costs benefit the university financially, so there shouldn't be a cap. (20%, 106 Votes)

At its July 17 meeting, the UC Board of Regents approved a 3 percent base salary increase for certain senior administrators, including UCLA Chancellor Gene Block. The regents approved the increase to match one given to non-represented UC employees this month. What do these increases in administrative pay say about the UC?
The increases are unfair and demonstrate poor financial prioritizing by the UC at a time when state funding is low. (67%, 103 Votes)
The pay increases are necessary to keep the UC competitive in retaining and recruiting top-level staff and administration. (14%, 22 Votes)
While the increases come at an inopportune time for the UC, it's only fair that administrators receive base increases just like other UC staff. (12%, 19 Votes)
