Student Government will introduce bylaw changes and a recommendation to bring a scooter service to campus at their Wednesday meeting.
Sen. Austin Graber will introduce a bill titled “An Act to Establish Student Government Priorities for ASSET Funding.” The act is focused on Student Government’s support of Analysis of Social Services Evaluation Team (ASSET), which is a volunteer organization that coordinates local planning, assesses needs, evaluates the capabilities of agencies to provide programs and recommends funding for programs.
The act would adopt the following priorities, in order, to the 2020-2021 ASSET Allocations.
- Childcare Services, with a specific emphasis on infant and toddler care
- Services providing aid to victims of sexual assault
- Services related to Sexual Health and STD prevention
- Substance abuse prevention and treatment
- Programs that empower traditionally discriminated-against peoples
- Legal Services not provided by Student Legal Services with a specific emphasis on probation services
Sen. Courtney Beringer will introduce a resolution titled “Feasances Accountability,” aimed at making specific bylaws that put someone in charge of keeping track of nonfeasance, misfeasance and malfeasances given to senators. Feasances are similar to strikes given due to misconduct.
Sen. Gabriel Rios-Rivera will introduce a resolution titled “Let’s Roll Recommendations.” The resolution recommends that Iowa State administration send a Request for Proposal to begin the process of bringing a scooter service to make students’ trips around campus easier.
