Recapping the Jan. 25 Student Senate Meeting

Want to replay it? Here’s the live blog.

As promised in the above live blog, those Finance Committee funding requests concerned Dream Big Soccer and the University Libertarians.

Dream Big Soccer requested $355, but FC recommended funding $0. Senate approved the FC’s recommendation.

University Libertarians requested $2,200 to send six people to a conference, but FC recommended funding $0. Finance Chair Janet Leung told Senate at the Nov. 30 meeting that “there was a lot of misinformation, and don’t have a very large presence on campus.” Senate approved the FC’s recommendation.

Joe Gaasbeck (Lyle) was nominated and approved to be the new Speaker of the Senate, replacing Laura Schur. Schur had to step down because of a conflict.

Senate also welcomed new senator Soniyyah Blue (Perkins).

I’ll have more information about new legislation that was introduced by Alex Ehmke (Dedman II) in tomorrow’s paper.

Here are the meeting minutes:
