At its second meeting of the quarter Tuesday, the ASSU Undergraduate Senate discussed reversing a special fees policy enacted by last year’s Senate. The Senate is set to vote on the special fees bill next week, along Constitutional Council and judicial panel pool nominees.
The ASSU Undergraduate Senate heard presentations Tuesday from Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS) on proposed Marguerite changes and the Study of Undergraduate Education at Stanford (SUES). The Senate approved a bill creating the volunteer position of an economic policy consultant to serve the needs of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
The 12th Undergraduate Senate passed a attempt to cap spending. The bill will become part of the ASSU joint bylaws and affect spring 2011 elections if passed this evening by two-thirds majority of the Graduate Student Council.
The 12th ASSU Undergraduate Senate decided Tuesday evening on the spring 2011 ASSU general election date, received the resignation of the Appropriations Committee Deputy Chair and began animated discussion on a bill to cap campaign spending for ASSU executive candidates.
In June, Brianna Pang ’13, Oz Hasbún ’13 and Alex Katz ’12 received an e-mail from ASSU president Angelina Cardona ’11 informing them of her intent to nominate them as members of the Constitutional Council, the judicial ruling body of the ASSU. Four months later, Pang, Hasbún and Katz each received another e-mail from Cardona, but this time with a different message: they had been replaced. Three new nominees, David Hoyt ’12, J’vona Ivory ’11 and Samir Siddhanti ’12 had been offered the three available council positions.
