ASUA Senate Meeting (9/2) Preview

Posted in Campus, Politics by Evan Lisull on 2 September 2009

ASUA SenateIn its continuing efforts to increase transparency, ASUA has now begun releasing Senate agendas the day before the meeting. The document can be downloaded here.

The main items up for discussion are:

  • Item # S09212 ASUA Budget 2009-2010 (Operations Accounts)

For background information on this debate,  read here.

  • Item # S09215 ASUA Bylaw Changes

The changes are clerical, and read as follows:

Section 11.01  ASUA Appropriations Board and Club Advocates

3. Initial Funding

(a) The Appropriations Board shall be responsible for allocating initial funding.

(b) All clubs and organizations receiving initial funding need only be recognized through the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) ASUA Club Resource Center .

10. Recognition of Clubs and Organizations.

i) All clubs and organizations requesting special funding shall be recognized by

The Center of Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) ASUA Club Resource Center and must have turned in a signed ASUA Club Funding form before special funding can be utilized.

This effectively recognizes the reality on the ground, as CSIL no longer does club certification, but it’s mildly interesting nonetheless.

  • Item # S092126 Arizona Students’ Association Presentation

This week’s game? Take a drink every time someone references “SAFRA.”

    I would be 200% more likely to attend ASUA meetings if I was allowed to drink at them.

    Off topic, but it appears that a UA Athletics official who is running for office is using his official position to keep people from campaigning at UA football tailgates. http://www.rumromanismrebellion.net/2009/09/02/convenient/
