Montclair newspaper funding restored

An AP story (via Editor & Publisher) from this morning reported: Funding restored to N.J. college paper.

Here’s an except:

Montclair State University’s student government decided Wednesday to temporarily restore funding to the school’s weekly student newspaper, after its decision to freeze the paper’s funding a week ago was criticized as an attempt to stifle freedom of the press.

After more than five hours of deliberation, the Student Government Association legislature voted 12-0, with seven abstentions, to restore funding for printing and office supplies to The Montclarion for 30 days, during which time student government and newspaper leaders are expected to try to resolve their differences.

Here’s a news story from The Montclarion: Montclarion Budget Unfrozen for One Month and here’s my original post on the news: Monclair State newspaper funding cut by SGA.
