Coming up on ASUC:
BILL TO CORRECT THE MINUTES: The two whereas clauses pretty much say it all:
WHEREAS, The minutes for the August 29, 2007, meeting of the ASUC Senate were adopted September 5, 2007; andHuh. I guess that means they shouldn't have been adopted, then, doesn't it? But come on. Expecting the Senators to do their job? What am I thinking.
WHEREAS, The minutes contained an error
A Resolution in Support of Campus Life and Leadership: This corrects some By-Laws to reflect the new name. Interestingly, the By-Laws are currently two names out of date (referencing the "Office of Student Activities and Services.") The references included "or its successor office or agency," though, so this isn't even a correction, so much as a brief update.
A Bill to Update the ASUC Outreach By-laws: This sort of updates office hour issues. One thing of note, though, is:
WHEREAS, ASUC Senators, as elected officials, can be expected to abide by the honor system and attend dutifully to their designated office hoursHa! All right, previous Senators. Let's hear how true that is. Anyway, the bill kills the requirement to keep track of attendance. It might help, then, if it included a method of reporting an absent office hour holder by a student who goes to office hours. My understanding, though, is that nobody ever goes to ASUC office hours.
A Bill to Rescind the Combination of the ICF and EEF Senate Representatives: This is the bill I caused. It rescinds the selection process of the two committees, and then nominates both Senators to both committees separately. I can't say I'm happy about nominating the Senators through a bill, though as long as the nominations are still open for other Senators, if any are inclined, it shouldn't be a problem.
A Bill in Support of Justice and Equal Treatment for the Jenna 6: Long!
WHEREAS, the Jenna 6 have not received an equitable trial,Well, there you go. No clue as to what kind of "support" the ASUC is giving "student organizing." I actually don't know who the Jenna 6 are. Let me look it up...
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the ASUC shall support student organizing on behalf of justice for the Jenna 6.
Oh. Apparently, beating the crap out of people is being charged differently or some such based on race. I guess. Well, just don't beat the crap out of people, and you won't have to worry about it.
A Bill in Support of the Cal Greek Community: This bill gives the Greek Officer of the ASUC the duty of representing the Multi-Cultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council, as well as the Interfraternity Council and the College Panhellenic Association.
