With no more money to allocate and no groups to hear, finance committee discussed the future in a meeting Tuesday.
The committee passed two bills making changes to the student code. The first clarified how Student Congress calculates the mileage for student groups requesting money for travel.
The second bill — renamed the Budget Planning Bill, formerly the SAFO Bill — was passed without prejudice to full Student Congress. The bill sets an amount of money to give to the Student Activities Fund Office so that budgeting is more accurate.
Priyesh Krishnan, chairperson of finance committee, said that to his knowledge, student government had never been in debt before.
He said he did research to find out why and learned that the student code used to set a number for SAFO.
