LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas Student Senate will vote this week on whether to eliminate a fee students have paid to the athletics department for more than 30 years.

Students pay $25 each in the fall and spring and $10 in the summer, with the revenue going to women's and non-revenue sports. The fee raised $1.1 million for Kansas Athletics Inc. last year.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1cIHWUK ) the fee began in the late 1970s to help the university comply with a federal law requiring universities to support women's sports.

An advisory board suggested in February that the fee be eliminated or reduced, citing the athletic department's increasing revenues and budget.

The Student Senate will vote on Wednesday as part of its regular review of all student fees.
