The Thunder6ird Monday, October 3, 1983 Trading Places THIS WEEK BY JEFF MAXWELL Student Senate President Senate is ready to handle bills The ASSUSC Student Senate is excited and working hard will be a year to remember at SUSC. to ensure that 1983-8r institution in the state We welcome you to the best of Utah. The constitution for ASSUSC provides for a strong student senate. Two senators from each school of the college (i.e. Arts and Letters, Business and Technology, Education, Science) and two senators from each class (i.e. Senior, Junior, Sophomore, Freshman) make up the student senate. This provides for a broad and fair representation of the student body. The Senate has been empowered to enact such legislation as is deemed necessary for the efficient operation of the ASSUSC. Adopting election rules, canvassing election results, establishing criteria for chartering clubs and organizations, approving presidential appointments, conducting investigations into matters concerning student welfare, and appropriating student fees are but a few of the things we do in student 4 four-yea- government. school year senior senators are Kelly For the 1983-8Chatterley and Adrian Sampson; junior senators are Craig Bickmore and Cindy Whatcott; sophomore senators are Kay Love and Raelynn Potts; Business and Technology senators are Theron Jensen and Scott Johnson; Education senators are Natalie Frehner and Lisa Ross; Science senators are Brent Miller and DiAnn Slade; and our Arts and Letters senator is Kurvin Gordon. MarKay Caldwell serves as senate secretary and Jeff Maxwell, student body vice president, serves as president of the senate. Applications are being accepted for another Arts and Letters senator to fill the current vacancy. The senate will appoint a person to fill that position from among the applications received. All senate positions except the two freshman senators are elected in the spring. Freshman senators are elected during ther first few weeks of fall quarter. Senators are elected by the student body to represent the different schools and classes on campus. Student senators are your representatives in student government. They are responsible to know those things that affect the students they represent and to keep concerned about the feelings of those they represent. Currently, the senate election committee is preparing for a general election to be held Oct. 19 in which the attorney general and two freshman senate positions will be filled. Applications for attorney general and senate positions can be picked up in the Student Center and must be returned no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7. Any chartered club or organization on campus has the right to request financial assistance from student fees through the student senate. Clubs and organizations are allocated money according to need, how well the organization represents SUSC, how many students the club or organizations activities involve and what efforts have been made by the club or organization to raise money from other sources. A resource committee has been formed to help clubs, organizations and students with any questions they may have about submitting bills to the senate. The senate president must be notified of any bills to be presented to the senate for review no less than 24 hours before the next senate meeting. All bills presented to the senate must be posted for one week prior to being voted on by the senate. This gives the senators time to investigate the bill and gives students a chance to review the bill and make comments concerning proposed action on the bill. The bill then must pass with a majority vote n favor of the bill. Currently, the student senate is reviewing legislation that would allocate $4,000 to the Open Recreation program which provides you, as students, with access to the schools physical education facilities. Also before the senate is a proposed amendment to the constitution of ASSUSC that would change the title of attorney general to social affairs vice president and add responsibilities of assisting the ASSUSC president in coordinating, executing and administrating events as planned by the president and his or her executive council. If this proposed amendment is passed by the senate, it will be voted on by the student body in a general election.
