With no revisions, student congress amendments are up for second vote

Student Government is back for round two.

Though a referendum failed to pass amendments to the Student Constitution in March, these amendments were once again put up to vote in a referendum on Wednesday.

These amendments, among other things, would merge the Student Supreme Court and Board of Elections in to district courts, make the Graduate and Professional Student Federation (GPSF) an official governing body, acknowledged in the Student Constitution; make the speaker of Student Congress and the finance committee chair eligible for a stipend and redistrict Student Congress representatives by academic year, according to Student Body President Houston Summers.

“I think that for me, one of the most important aspects of this is kind of elevating GPSF to a governing body within Student Government,” Summers said.
