ASUI assigned senators to their new committees and living groups at Wednesday’s meeting.
Virtual living groups, which are performed via Facebook Live and are designed to reach off-campus students according to the bill introduced last semester, have also been assigned. The first one will be held Jan. 29 by Sen. Carlos Vazquez. Virtual living groups will be held every Monday around mid-day according to the bill.
The senate will vote on bills to make changes to the ASUI cabinet at next week’s meeting. The changes were outlined last week during open forum by ASUI Chief of Staff Jordan Johnson.
Bills for next week also include a bill to establish the Dance Marathon as the spring philanthropy event of 2018, allocating $1,000 to send two students to a women’s six-day leadership training in Boise.
Next week ASUI will also vote on a resolution calling on Idaho lawmakers to remove the sunset clause on medical amnesty. Removing this clause would make medical amnesty a permanent part of Idaho law. The resolution has been sponsored by all of the ASUI senators.
ASUI will also vote on changing disciplinary actions for senators, moving impeachment and disciplinary actions to the government operations and appointments committee instead of the ways and means committee.
Sen. Zachary Spence said there is a rules and regulations committee meeting which is open to any student who is interested at 3:30 p.m. on Friday Jan. 26.
Pro-tempore Jordan Keizer said there is an associated student fee committee meeting from 3:30 to 7:00 p.m. Jan. 25 in the Clearwater room of the Idaho Commons.
