Over a month into the Fall 2016 semester, the Student Government Association is still scrambling to introduce new legislation, aside from the standard crosswalk proposal with Resolution No.1.
That resolution proposes a third crosswalk from the Burt parking lot to the Kimbrough and MMC buildings. President Ryan Honea and Vice President Dylan Kellogg said there is a need for new legislation and offered to assist any senators with ideas at the Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Sen. Thomas Murphy said the computer science department has added an Information Assurance and Security minor to meet the demand for cybersecurity.
In response to the in-depth budget talks that occupied most of the Sept. 14 SGA meeting, Honea sent each senator a detailed itemized list of the budget so senators could be better equipped to answer students’ questions concerning it. No vote has yet been taken on whether or not to make the detailed list public. Sen. Murphy voiced an idea to have a stricter budget in place for SGA instead of an expense report for more intentional spending.
The next SGA meeting will be Wednesday Oct. 5, at 4 p.m. in MUC 307.
