Whereas: Some members of the student body have expressed strong feelings of dissatisfaction with CampusCruiser (known on campus as LCWarriorMail).
Whereas: A significant portion of the student technology fee is spent annually to purchase the license for CampusCruiser. (The license fee for 2007-2008 is over $35,000.)
Whereas: The ASLCSC wants to ensure that CampusCruiser provides the students with the best value in a campus-wide email system.

Section 4: This resolution will pass upon a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the
