SGA passes bill addressing short-notice legislation

The Student Government Association House of Representatives passed a bill Tuesday that clarifies how legislation is presented to SGA on a time constraint.

The bill specifies that the author of a bill proposal can introduce the proposal and petition the Executive Board to declare the proposal an emergency measure, so it can be voted on in the House in the same meeting. The bill also allows SGA to vote on bill proposals that affect a specific committee in the same session. Previously, all bill proposals introduced to the House were tabled to committee and brought back up in the following meeting.
