To reduce waste, some students have proposed Associated Students UCLA restaurants start selling cups separately from coffee. The price of a cup of coffee wouldn't change, but students who bring their own mug would pay less for coffee. How do you feel about this issue?
  • ASUCLA should implement this plan because it will both help reduce waste and students' personal spending. (64%, 217 Votes)
  • Disposable coffee cups are a worrisome source of waste on campus, but necessary to regulate sanitary conditions and the amount of coffee customers receive. (18%, 60 Votes)
  • Imposing price differences on ASUCLA cafes is an unnecessary waste of resources. (16%, 54 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (2%, 6 Votes)

The Los Angeles City Council is voting Tuesday on a proposal to spend $1.3 billion over the next 30 years to fix sidewalks, while beginning to hold property owners accountable for future repairs. If passed, the proposal would end a 1970s policy holding the city responsible for repairs. How do you feel about this issue?
  • As public infrastructure, sidewalks should be the city's responsibility indefinitely, not the responsibility of homeowners and businesses. (78%, 292 Votes)
  • The proposal is a good compromise because the city is investing in road fixtures before handing off responsibility to homeowners. (14%, 54 Votes)
  • The city should not be responsible for fixing the sidewalks. It must hand over the responsibility sooner instead of spending more than a billion dollars on repairs. (5%, 19 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (3%, 10 Votes)

  • Shake Shack is a welcome addition to the city's roster of burger joints. (37%, 290 Votes)
