SG delays E&R vote

Student Government postponed the vote to give newly-elected representatives time to read the reforms.

The Student Government Assembly voted on Thursday night to postpone consideration of significant changes to the bylaws of the Elections and Rules Committee (E&R) in order to give representatives of the class of 2017 more time to study the proposed changes. Because the winners of the first-year election were announced just hours before the Thursday meeting, the class of 2017 representatives had not had an opportunity to read over the changes under consideration.

The changes to the bylaws of the E&R Committee would clearly define penalties for rule infractions and would change the size and composition of E&R. Reforms to the bylaws were proposed after a contentious spring election cycle when the E&R Committee disqualified one candidate and awarded significant vote penalties to two slates. SG Assembly will consider reforms to the bylaws at the next SG Assembly on November 7.
