  2. Are we going to take a stand on this at all?
  1. Potentially: release statement if need be, but don’t frame it politically if we don’t actually need to
  2. Frame it as structural issue? I.e. what came out of the budget to make this happen that CRs isn’t talking about, such as the sexual assault prevention budget and programs for low-income students
  3. Worst case scenario, CRs says a lot about this and takes shots at us for not saying anything. We can talk about why this isn’t partisan, why the process was bad, etc.? Call CRs out for making no statements on anything except this
