  2. ABC funds the inital allocations and approves the expenditures of those groups recognized under ABC;
  3. ABC determines funding and policy guidelines for ABC recognized organizations;
  4. ABC empanels a Judiciary Committee to enforce above guidelines (if and when necessary).

The ABC meets on Wednesdays at 8:30pm.
