Student Senate passes legislation, swears in interns


The Student Governing Association’s Student Senate convened last night in the Big 12 room of the K-State Student Union. In a meeting briefly interrupted by a Royal Purple yearbook photo shoot, the Senate passed three bills and a resolution, and swore in their new class of interns.

Among the bills to pass was 13/14/01, an amendment to the SGA bylaws concerning the Housing and Dining Services judicial boards, described in past weeks as an effort to reflect changes made to the university’s constitution last year. Another bill, 13/14/04, allocated $350 to International Buddies to hold an event.

Another bill was also introduced at the meeting. Bill 13/14/05 concerns allocations to various academic competition teams. The bill will go to a vote next week.

In addition to the legislation, 25 interns – who were chosen from an applicant pool of more than 100 students – were sworn in.

The Student Senate meets every Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Big 12 room.
