Name game — ASUI creates new positions in executive council


The ASUI Senate voted on a series of bills which will make changes to ASUI rules and regulations which were discussed during the senate’s previous meeting.

The senate debated and eventually passed a bill that changed the amount of strikes and pay deductions a senator could receive during a term.

By the one-hour mark, ASUI moved to the second bill, which passed in four minutes and reformed the current impeachment process.

The next bills passed moved disciplinary actions to the Government Operations and Appointments Committee from the Ways and Means Committee, established the upcoming dance marathon as the spring semester philanthropy event and created the position of director of philanthropy. The Senate also passed a bill changing the title of director of Idaho Commons and Pitman Center to director of student spaces.

The bill appointing Carly Weaver as the adjutant was moved to immediate consideration by Pro-tempore Jordan Keizer and was passed. The bill appointing ASUI executive branch members was moved to be immediately considered and passed.

The resolution urging Idaho lawmakers to make medical amnesty permanent passed. ASUI President McKenzie MacDonald said the bill that would remove the sunset clause is currently waiting for a hearing.

ASUI Vice President Catherine Yenne said there will be no senate meeting Feb. 7 because legislative ambassadors will be in Boise.

The senate will meet again Feb. 14 during its regularly scheduled time and place and will vote on a resolution which would call upon the university to automatically print double-sided on all student computers.
