THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that the Senate opposes SUNY's and the governor's plan of automatic, annual tuition hikes; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we urge Governor Pataki and the New York State Legislature to protect their student and parent constituents by passing a state budget for the 2005-06 fiscal year that holds the line on tuition, and hlly funds TAP and other financial assistance programs.

A total of 17.7 million women are victims of sexual assault every year (Prevalence, Incidence and Consequences of Violence Against Women Survey, National Institute of Justice and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1998); and Jokes, satires, and mockeries making light of dating violence can have damaging consequences to those who have been victimized; and We call on the student body to challenge the trivialization of dating violence that some media typify; such trivializations are dismissive, compounding the general social blindness about dating violence and thus reinforcing perceptions that sexual assault is largely a figment of the imagination. When these perceptions hold sway, survivors find it much harder to recover from trauma, and perpetrators find it much easier to victimize again; and We must support survivors of sexual assault within our community, instead of condoning attitudes that can trigger the re-victimization of survivors. Joking about date rape belittles the experience of survivors of sexual assault and reinforces the cultural epidemic of dating violence. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that formally express support for victims of sexual assault. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that articles making light of sexual assault must be challenged so that such opinions are not misconstrued as mainstream sentiment, and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Student Association Senate expresses their disapproval of rape satires and jokes and asks all media outlets to approach the topic of sexual assault with sensitivity.

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the Student Association lead the community in committing itself to a thoughtful dialogue about how to end dating violence and to be active in the initiatives taken here on campus that work to eliminate sexual assault in our community.

Student Association Internal Control Reswnsibilities State University of New York at Oswego Student Association's system of internal control integrates the activities, plans, attitudes, policies, skills, and efforts of its employees working together to provide reasonable assurance that the Student Association will achieve its objectives and mission. The effectiveness of the Student Association system of internal control in assuring the achievement of goals depends on articulating and communicating Student Association's mission and objectives to employees as well as providing employees with the direction and information that allow them to understand their individual responsibilities and priorities and how they relate to that mission. Essentially, they need to know what the Student Association's goal are, what the Student Association expects of them in their position and the appropriate means for achieving it, and how their performance will be measure and evaluated.

Motion to approve the agendaBacanskas, 2"d Belser Public Comment SAPB Next Saturday is going to be the spring event. It is going to be a comedy show instead of music. We are having the Best of the Chapel show. We only need $7000 on this concert to make our income line and I think that is very feasible. It is a little late to announce this but we have PRSSA and others working hard to promote this next week. I have spoken with Dr.Hughes about May Day and with our money that we have left over we are going to be having some acts come and play for May Day. Two of the acts are nationally known and a few are local but working their way up. All together there will be about 8 or 9 bands. It is completely free to you and they will be playing all day. NYPIRG We were very happy with the turnout on the referendum. We were working very hard and it paid off. I would also like to congratulate Ian and Scott on your elections. I want to clear up some confusion on our public comment last week. I believe that some senators were upset that one of the officers was wearing a "Vote yes for NYPIRG shirt because they thought that it was SA funded. However, the t-shirts were actually made by my dad and me. There was also some confusion going around about the way that our money is distributed. We do not distribute our money like SA does. I would just appreciate it if you came to NYPIRG with your concerns so that we can answer any questions for you before you go to your constituents. In regards to the higher ed campaign, the senate and assembly passed a preliminary budget and the assembly rejected the TAP plan, the incremental plan and the initial $500 increase. For the first time ever, the budget should be out by April 1''. The EPA came out with final mercury information and it turns out that the levels are going to remain. This Thursday we are attending a press conference about getting unclaimed deposits distributed differently. We are having our Easter food drive Saturday April 2nd. Men's Rugby We just wanted to come here and thank you for the funding you allowed us to go for our certification; we should now be set for about 3 years.

VI. VII. VIII. Great Lake Review We are looking to put the literary magazine back on campus. We just stepped up to this about a month ago and we feel that the creative writing department needs an outlet as well. We already have many people interested we just need the funding to get it going. We only need money for printing and we took out the artwork and the color on the cover of the magazine. We are hoping to turn the organization around next year and get a full board of officers. This magazine could be an outlet for anyone on campus, not just the creative writing majors. We are approximating that we will be making 300 copies but we are willing to break that in half, however that doesn't knock the cost in half. RobertsHave you looked around and done other pricing? GLRWe already have a layout from when the magazine was in production before and we feel it would be more expensive if we tried to change that. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland We had an amazing time on spring break. I don't have much of anything for you tonight; I will have more things for next week. SA Vice President: Kristin Beck We have received 2 thank you cards and we also got invited to the SAVAC annual banquet. It will be on April 16' at the Press Box and you must RSVP by March 24'. I will post it by the mailboxes because we only got one for the whole senate. Sorry about getting the packet out to you late. Faculty assembly meets every other week and we need to fill the other 2 seats that are available. Senator Farrell is going to start attending and is there anyone else that is interested? The meetings are from 3 to 5 and never go beyond, that it is a set time.Ward is interested. Spring break was fun but the bus rides were not. If you hear of people being upset with Breakaway Tours for that, let them know that it was the bus company not Breakaway. Assistant Director of FinanceKelly Lyon Nancy will have a bill or two for you next week. The applications for Director of finance and Driector of Human Resource have to be in by April 1". Senator Issues Forum RobinsonThere have been the rumors going around about NYPIRG that they sponsor everything, if you hear this please e-mail me, it upsets me and I want to find out more about it.

Motion to approve the agendaRobinson, 2nd Mapes Public Comment NYPIRG Last week the Senate and Assembly finalized their budgets and they rejected all tuition increases. This shows that hard work really does pay off and we got our voice out there and it was heard. The Governor still has to pass his budget but for the fust time in many years it is going to be out by April I ''. The food drive to benefit needy families is going to be taking place Saturday at P&C fiom 11-3. The Earth Day Fair is in the works it is going to be held April 14~~. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland This is my last senate meeting as President but I will be coming back as an offcampus senator when I am done with my term. I want to recap on some of the things that we have accomplished this year: This summer I went to every orientation and met a lot of incoming freshmen. The executive board retreat was a fun time for all. The SUNY Board of Trustees threw a lot of things at us but we were able to deal with them and get them done with many thanks to Ian and Nancy.With the involvement fair I would like to thank the organizations that participated and I hope that it continues. The new website is an improvement but and is still in progress, thank you to Andy Drogo for your work on that. The new SA logo is now put out there, thank you to the Senate for getting that through and to Andy and Heather McBride for your work on creating it. The DVD's in the library are already a hit, thank you to Mike Olenick and Billy Nichols for getting that going. The SAVAC garage is going to be built, I signed on it today. The Tsunami relief is going well, thank you to the organizations and Billy for your efforts in organizing that. Spring Break in Panama went well, thank you to Breakaway Tours. I would like to continue the process of moving unused funds from organizations back into the senate account so money doesn't go unused. We have had

PAGE 7

helphl computer maintenance this year and letting organizations use the computers in the office. My e-board had a good time together this year. Kristin and I have worked very well as a team even though we disagree on some things, we managed pretty well. Nancy, we wouldn't have gotten through this year without you and your hard work. Dan Tuscarella was mainly behind the scenes but was a big help to me. Dan Preston has taught me a lot about myself since I have known him and I hope that our friendship will continue. Billy, I have watched you grow since you came to college and you have done great things already, I know you will be success~l in the future. Andy has become one of my best friends this past year and I know that this year wouldn't have been the same without you. Scott Jones is not only one of my directors but a housemate and a good friend. Aida and Kelly, your assistance to Nancy has been greatly appreciated. Justin Barber, director of off-campus services has made many positive changes for the off-campus students and I'm sure the good things will continue. To the faculty and staff, Dr. Scarfenberger, Dr. King, and Nick Lyons have given me new perspectives throughout my term. I would also like to thank President Stanley and Dr. Chlemo. One last thank you to Greg Lawson for being a good friend. I think that's about it, thank you for a great year. SA Vice President: Kristin Beck This year has been amazing and Kevin and I have made it through our differences. Our e-board has had a great time together this year. Andy, thank you, you have helped me the most throughout this year. To the senate, most of you are new this year and I hope that you have learned a lot, it is a really good experience. I have been going to senate meetings since I came to college and I am thankful for the experiences that I have had. Greg Lawson got me into the SA thing and he has taught me everything that I know. Good luck to Ian and Scott in your upcoming year. It has been a good successful year, we have managed to avoid negative press. We didn't have any election problems and we didn't have any impeachments. We were able to make many amendments this year and overall I think we were very productive. Director of FinanceNancy Smith I have 2 bills coming tonight, one for the transfer of funds from 6501 and a copy of the budget that we worked so hard to get through. Next week is going to be the appeal process and they have to be turned in by Thursday. The accounts are now as follows: 6501$28,375.22,6502$5,999.66, 6503$0, 6506$270.21,6505$220. Director of Disability AffairsDan Preston To prove that it hasn't hit me yet, I just realized that this was my last meeting so I didn't have anything prepared. The president elect can take care of the homework for next week. Greg Lawson also got me involved in SA the way that I am. I would like to thank the senators, you have done well this year. I have been less vocal this year in SA because our e-board had a superb handle on things and I didn't need to be as vocal. I had a lot of faith in our e-bard, you guys are amazing. This administration has been the backbone of my work, I really appreciate that. It is going to be very hard for me to leave, but I will still be around, you can count on that. There will be no more homework from me, thank you again and have a fin year! Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo

PAGE 8

I realized how much we have really grown this year, we made a great team. Kevin did an amazing job as president and he ran crazy hours in the ofice. Kristin has run great meetings and overall done a great job. Nancy, you have been great this year in dealing with the organizations. Billy, all the work you have done has been great and no matter what if you succeed or not, you always put your heart into it. Dan Preston has taught me a lot this year, if you don't know him, get to know him. The other directors were great too, we had made a great team, thank you for a great year. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols This year, without Andy and Kevin I would have been lost. I hope that everyone can attend the bowl-a-thon tonight. Camp Hollis was a really memorable time for me this year. VII. Senator Issues Forum MottThere is another off-campus luncheon tomorrow in the Forum; the first 50 people eat free. ColemanThe Gospel Choir is having their annual dinner Saturday and tickets are free and available at Ticketmaster. RobinsonIn regards to last weeks rumors about NYPIRG, I have done some research and I have found that these things seem to be coming from more than one person. I was hoping that maybe we could get a committee together to investigate this further. Motion to create a committee, 2" Mott. HershkowitzWhat would this committee investigate? RobinsonWe want to clear up the rumors and find out where they are coming from. HershkowitzHave there been any complaints to the Supreme Court? RobinsonI don't think there have been yet but I would like to be prepared if that were to happen. Hershkowitz Would this investigation be used as evidence? RobinsonBasically people are talking and I don't want to get into everything now that is why I want to form a committee maybe we can meet after this meeting to decide if we want to. MottI had a student confirm this rumor and out of personal curiosity I would like to investigate it. RobertsAre there actually any names or faces to these rumors? It seems absurd to exploit an organization without names of first hand accounts. MottI have a name but I don't have the permission to give that information out yet. RobinsonWell I just want to know if most people are in favor I would like to motion to vote, 2* Durgin. SwenssonObjection, if we don't know information I don't think that we should be voting on what we don't know. BelserThis seems like a waste of time really. We can't chase down the rumors that we hear and I fail to see how this is going to lead us anywhere. HubertThe goal is to find out what is being said, not to take legal action. You have the option of whether or not you want to be on this committee. HershkowitzWhat exactly are we investigating? RobinsonI see this as a problem and I just want to further the investigation. MottSince independent people are hearing it I feel that it is an important rumor to address and with the committee it would be easier to find these things out.

PAGE 9

BarraI agree with Senator Belser, we can't chase down rumors, they are going to spread and you can't stop it or find out where it started from. The only thing we can do is say that it isn't true. Dr. ScharfenbergerI suggest that if you vote to make the committee you have to pay attention to the rules of the committee, etc. RobinsonI withdraw my motion. VIII. Committee Reports Policv: There was no meeting last week and there wont be one this week. I will be in the library if anyone wants to come and work on things. I also will be stepping down as policy chairman. Procedure: We met last week and started writing legislation for the fund reserve to determine how we can use it. There is no meeting this week. Finance: Thank you for attending the meeting again this week, they have been lengthy. The reserve fhd bill came up and we recommend it. We will meet Thursday at 9 in the SA office. Involvement: No report Health and Safetv: We met last Thursday and there will be no meeting this week. Elections: We will meet tomorrow at 8:30 to work on the elections timeline. CCRT: RobinsonI nominate Senator Durgin for CCRT, 20d Swensson. Jen would like Senator Durgin to go to one of their meetings and she would like to come to one of ours. IX. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.52 Social Justice Club Get Free Times RobertsThey have been paying out of pocket for the past few issues and we are requesting $175 for the rest of the year. We are also starting to take on advertising fees. HershkowitzThey are a tier 1 organization and they have been working really hard and doing advertising. I think that we should give this money to them. President SutherlandI just wanted to know why this had to be put on special orders? RobertsWe need to start our issue on Friday so it was late notice. HubertWhy was the amount changed? RobertsThe fmt amount was a high estimate for 500 issues but we cut it to 400. HubertWhy did it take so long to get this done that now it needed to go on special orders? RobertsWe have been talking about it and working on it for a while, I am sorry for the lateness. Vote: 16-2-0, legislation passes. HershkowitzMotion to relinquish the chair. 2" Hubert X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.48 Reserve Fund President SutherlandWe need to start working towards a reserve fund. We will put the money in a bank with the best interest rates. There will be an amendment to this bill as well. FarrellMotion to amendChange line 14 amount to $22,000, 2" Hershkowitz. We are changing it down because we already took $5000 from 6501 to go to 6502 and if we take the full amount it leaves us with $3000 and we need that for auditing costs. President SutherlandThis leaves $3000 for 6501 after the auditing cost. We need to be working towards $125,000. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzHave we designated where the cash reserve is and how we are going to use it?

HershkowitzMotion to amendChange wording in line 17-18,2" Belser. HubertWhat is the purpose to this amendment? HershkowitzIt is just for clarity, if the president didn't sign a bill it wouldn't contradict it. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes Motteven if this wasn't being mandated I think that it is a good idea to have this on hand. Vote on bill: 17-0-0, legislation passes. XI.

RES.40.05 Thank you Dan Preston(Resolution read by President Sutherland) FarrellI recently had a great conversation with Dan and it would have been great if I was given the chance to work with him. BrianneI have been very lucky to know Dan. HE is so passionate about what he does that he makes you care about different issues. You are inspiring and so successful. You have been a great director and an even better friend. Dan is always somewhere with a smile on. Greg LawsonI have a statement fiom Harry Shock that commends and thanks Dan for everything he has done. Dan is an amazing writer and many other things. I am glad that I have been able to work with him. If he is working on an important issue, he does research, more research, and then more research. If he feels confident he brings it to other people and then writes a resolution. To him it is all about action. He goes to the proper committee and gets things changed. I wish that I could follow more closely in his footsteps. He has brought forward a new philosophy on everything. He has attacked stereotypes, it would have been easy for him to sit back and live life, but he didn't, he is always doing something. He works toward achievement and changing things for the better. He is the most amazing student and leader that I have ever met. HershkowitzMotion to pass by acclimation, znd Mott. 6.)

I know things will work out for you in the future and you will go far. BrianneI was very shy when I met Kristin and she was one of the first people that I met here. I have worked closely with her and I have learned a lot fiom her. I know that things will work out for you in the future. Greg LawsonI have never met anyone who has challenged me like Kristin did. I met her in her fust week at Oswego. She leads by example and puts in amazing dedication. You made being here worth it. Welcome to Emeritus. I am very proud of you. I was here for your 1" meeting, I wouldn't miss your last. HershkowitzKristin has been so dedicated to her position and work this year. She has done an outstanding job and there are just too many good

PAGE 11

things to say. Her meetings have been miraculously short and she will be greatly missed. RobinsonI will have so much pressure following Greg and Kristin in this position. Greg got me going on the online elections and Kristin pretty much told me that I was running for Vice President. You can really learn a lot from Kristin and Greg.

Public Comment NYPIRG The NYS budget has been passed by the Assembly and the Senate with no increases but Pataki has proposed a $125 increase. Again this would be the students paying more but not getting more. If you would like to contact the Governor and voice your opinion on this issue the number is 5 18-474-8390. Our food drive was rescheduled last weekend because of the weather and it is tentatively planned for April 16". We are working on Earth Day projects and one thing that will be happening is a clean up of Glimmerglass lagoon. I want to touch on the editorial that was written in the Oswegonian because it was backed by so many of you. We do believe that it is important to get the correct information out there and let people know that we are funded by SA and we don't fund organizations. However, we held a chapter meeting in which about 20 people attended and when this rumor was brought up, no one had heard it which makes us question the prevalence of the rumor. Some students were outraged because their voter intelligence was questioned in the article. This year alone we have registered over 1300 voters, have done over 175 class presentations, had about 600 signatures for our higher education campaign, and have formed many coalitions. We have taught campaign tactics for the referendum and put in over 70 hours of volunteer services. With any of these events, people have to know who we are. We did get a lot of our voters on the referendum but because of the hard work that we did to get ourselves out there. There may be some people who don't know us but it is hard to say that the majority of people don't know who we are and what we do. Women's Center We have come tonight hoping that you will hear our budget appeal because we didn't get to it with enough time. We are appealing our income line because we are incapable of giving $1000 from the Vagina Monologues back to SA, it is in violation of the contract. It is where we get most of our money, we do have some smaller fundraisers throughout the year but they are minor and don't raise a lot of money. We feel that it isn't capable for us to pay back $1000. Now touching on the resolution for tonight. This isn't about the author or about free speech, it is about the victims and survivors of date rape andlor assault. We hope that somehow something positive can come out of this resolution and that you as a student body will choose to voice your disapproval ofjoking about date rape. Author of Article

PAGE 14

The reason that I am here tonight is to definitively state that the purpose of my article was to use satire to raise awareness as to the growing culture of victimization that the intended date rape crisis fosters. I do not endorse date rape nor do I dislike efforts to prevent it. 1 have even participated in campus events concerning date rape and I have gone to a women's center workshop. All I'm trying to say is that the definition of date rape is a live issue and is hotly debated. The resolution coming up tonight is noble in its intent but one would be hard pressed to say that it is not a response to my satirical column. The senate is being asked to come together behind one of the two competing feminist theories regarding date rape. Passing this resolution would freeze any opinion on campus that disagrees with the perspective on date rape that the women's center expounds, I just want you to see that the differing views are out there, I got the information for my column from a female feminist Graduate Student from Education Department I believe that people need to feel safe in a college community and this article made me feel unsafe. I noticed something about the article; the e was left off of rape. This is satirical but not funny. Compassion is also missing from this article. The first amendment has restrictions to fiee speech if it harms society and I think that this does. This article provided a venue for re-victimization. This campus supports and embraces differences and gives us a protective cover. The Oswegonian was doing very well with their articles until this year. There have been a lot of articles that cause problems and bickering. I don't feel that SA should fund an organization that is willing to promote ignorance. Social Justice Club We have a bill in tonight for the Get Free Times. We would like to have a guest speaker come to the school. He is a social critic and a writer. He has written things such as Afluenza and The Vermont Manifesto. He is active in the 2& Vermont Republic Movement. Our organization does know a lot about him and there has been a lot of interest shown in his coming. He is very different from our previous MSA speaker. This would be taking place on April 28' and we are expecting about 100 people to attend. We are asking you for $200 for his hotel, food, transportation, etc. He would normally go for about $1500. We had a feminist conference in Boston and we have two more that are coming up that we pay for out of pocket. Next week is going to be our film festival. Women's Center Response to Author of Article I heard that our use of Senate was questioned. A resolution is a formal report of what the senate feels and we don't want anyone to be punished for this but we do want a formal opinion so the student body knows that there is a voice for them. This also isn't a free speech issue. We give the author the benefit of the doubt that he meant it in a satirical manor and didn't mean to harm anyone but he wasn't effective in getting his point across because his article was so detailed and that is where our problem was. It is offensive and dangerous for this to go undebated. Maureen CurtinFaculty Advisor The fact is that date rape is against the law and there is no ambiguity about that. It took a long time to get this issue prosecuted. I am chair of PSTF so if you want to learn more and get involved feel free to come to the subcommittee meetings. Kevin Sutherland -This is the most people that I have ever seen in this room and I just wanted to say have fun and good luck with budget appeals! VI. Budget Appeals OTEA

Is at a conference and will not be able to present tonight, they want to know if they can present at finance committee or at next weeks meeting. Outing Club We missed our presentation time during budget committee. We are looking to increase our events fund. We are going to be doing White water rafting this year and that is $640 for 8 people; kayaking which is $768 for 8 people; rock climbing is $312 for 12 people; ice climbing is $640 for 8 people; we are also looking to get 3 more people first aid certified which is going to be $507 for 3 people. Overall for events we are asking for $2867. Our transportation costs are from rental cars and gas which comes to about $1390. Equipment is going to be $400. Copy and fiuc: $40. The outing club was pretty much nonfunctioning in 2002 and the club has grown greatly. We have our own room in the union and we take about 4 or 5 trips per semester. This is a good way to allow students to get out of Oswego. BacanskasHow long does the certification last? Outing clubI believe for 3 years. BacanskasAre the others returning that got certified last year? Outing ClubYes. Storytellers Guild We are going to be having our capstone event in about 2 weeks. It is Arcon and it is held in the union this year. This creates a safe environment. We have game developers, writers, authors, publishers, and more. We organize this event all year and it makes most of our income line. We also have the midnight trinity techno ball and spring dance. Minicon is held in Funelle Hall and we get together and play games and we do this to attract new members. We do take some trips within the local area. We also have a lending library with roll play books which are not cheap and we let anyone take them out. This is probably our greatest service utilized and provided. SAVAC Medical Supplies AccountEvery year about $4500 is a good estimate and every two years we have to pay $710 to get new medications. Our Training budget is necessary because we have a turnover rate of many officers this year. We also need la aid books and classes. When we go to conferences we go to gain experiences by talking to and hearing from other EMS groups. We have to pay for the travel, tickets, housing, etc. We have sent Public Relations representatives in the past and we are up to about 45 members now because of that. Rainbow Alliance Sorry that I am unprepared I had to fill in at last minute. We are appealing our events fund. During the year we do the National Coming Out Day t-shirts and we usually get about 2000 shirts. We have the drag ball that we do every year and get about 250 people to turnout. Next week is the day of silence and we think that we are going to have a large turnout for it. We are going to have Shawn Cassidy and possible WNYO at this event. We also-experienced a cut in our videos account. We asked for an increase but it wasn't granted. It has been cut the past few years but these are important accounts because the books and videos that we have are hard to find and are expensive. They are also available for everyone. Men's Rugby We are appealing for 5 of our accounts. Game Costs: We are going to about 6 or 7 tournaments that have fees so we are asking for $400 more.

PAGE 16

Equipment and uniforms: We have an increase in the # of members and we are asking for a total of $1 750. Transportation: We asked for $2700 and got $1000. We take 4 road trips in the fall and 4-6 in the spring which is about $200-300 a trip so we need at least $1600-$2500. CIPP Membership: Every player must be registered with USA Rugby and we had about 20-30 players CIPPed in the spring. We usually estimate about 8 new people per semester so we anticipate that we will need to CIPP 36-46 people. We try to overshoot by about 2 people to be safe. Nancy Smithit was said before that the renewal was going to be $15-20, did that change? RugbyYes, we thought that was the cost but when 1 CJPPed someone this spring it was $20. Coaching Fees: We requested $1320 and we got $500. We always pay our coaches $500 per semester so we would need at least $1 000 for the year. Del Sarte We are appealing to have a budget for the 2005-2006 year. For our show we need about $1600-$1700 for the Saturday rehearsal, Sunday rehearsal and show itself. We recently started charging for the show because we were dropped fiom Tier 3 status. Charging gets us about $1400 at $3 per ticket. Personally we have costume and video expenses. With the left over money we make fliers and have programs for our show. Our club has grown so much we have about 200 members now. Men's Ice Hockey We are appealing out transportation budget. We were given $6000 to use the school vans but 1 recently found out that we cannot use them. We looked over our options and decided that a bus is more practical than renting vans fiom Enterprise. We have a 30 game schedule and we are concerned with safety when we drive ourselves. The cost of gas, mileage, and personal fatigue takes a big toll. HershkowitzAre you planning to get school buses or charter buses? Hockey1 believe they are charter buses. ChadaevHow much are you asking for now? HockeyWe are asking for about $1 1,000. Raquetball In a year we travel to 5 tournaments and we hope to attend nationals next year. In our travel account with 5 trips, it is $400. Hotel: 5 trips, $1600 Nationals: $2125.06 split in half with us. Personal expenses: $61 3 for equipment. Ontarian We have three major costs and right now we are trying to get back up and running. Publication costs $20,000 and we got $7000 which isn't even enough to make the first payment. Salaries: the editors put in countless hours of work on this project. The editor now is getting $500 but there are other editors and we need money for all of our postage. FarrellI was able tog et them money without changing any other organizations, I got it from contingency accounts. Cheerleading We are here to request $700 more for our coach payments. Right now he is pretty much paying to be our coach with all the traveling he does. We really want to keep him as our coach because it is important when we are in a time of reconstruction. COPE We offer many free activities on campus and we do some fundraising. Some of our events this year are going to be a yard sale, Krispie Kreme sale, and "Fight with Feathers, not Violence". The HIP program can also help us. Once a year we do mediation training and just for catering alone it costs us $400-500.

PAGE 17

During peace week we have speakers come in who cost us money. This year we want to have our banquet for 10' anniversary and that will be about $800. Nancy SmithAre you asking for the money for this year or next year? COPEFor next year. MottWhy don't you have a budget as of now? Nancy SmithThey didn't turn in a budget. MottWhy not? COPEWe are doing some restructuring in our board. Community Services We would like to either attend or present at the National Budget Conference. Our publicity fimd went down to $200 and we need more than that to publish a newsletter, probably costs up to $800. For Mentor Oswego supplies we would like $250. HershkowitzI motion for WTOP to come down and present appeal. WTOP Postage: We were allocated $100 but we are requesting for $200 because we do need to return movies and send in equipment when it needs to be fixed. Telephone: We got $1000, but we are requesting $1500 because we deal with voicemail and many long distance calls to and fiom businesses. Equipment: We got $5000 but we are asking for $7000. We are going to be doing various productions and we want to replace the rest of the old equipment to go to the new campus center. Broadcast Operations: We got $7000, but we want $9500 for our day to day operations. We have to have a certain graphics program and a TVC which allows the old equipment to work with the new equipment. We are currently working on our image. We have increased membership. We are still learning our new equipment so please bear with us. M. Executive Reports SA PresidentIan Farrell Tonight I have the appointments for directors. I handed out a packet that includes the job description, applications, and resumes. Pat Calahan is going for Director of Student Affairs; Justin Barber for director of off-campus services; Melissa Andrews for Director of Public Relations; and Allen Hershkowitz for Chief of Staff. We are going to go through a question answer period with them one at a time. (Questions for Calahan) HershkowitzWhat do you see your role as? 0 CalahanI would like to help with the involvement fair, bowl-a-thon, and continue the library movies. HubertWhy do you want this position? CalahanI love politics and I need some experience. I want to improve the student body. (Questions for Barber) MottDo you plan to do anything different or new this year from last? BarberThis is my 3* term and I am looking to get an assistant, I want to get a petition brought to the parking committee so that they can see that there are still issues with off-campus parking. ChadaevAre you confident that you can handle the responsibilities? BarberI haven't had a problem in the past, I can still keep up my achievement. RobertsWhat have you previously accomplished? BarberI redid the housing list fiom scratch and keep it updated. I am the only student to sit on the parking committee. I helped an org get started that dealt with off campus students but the club fell through. (questions for Andrews) HubertWhat do you hope to accomplish?

PAGE 18

AndrewsI want to increase membership in organizations and let people know that there is a director there to help them. MapesAre you going to be involved with elections and involvement committees? AndrewsYes, I am going to work with Andy Drogo and see what ideas he has left too. ArmalenoHow do you plan to inform students about SA? AndrewsI am going to do a lot of fliers and just get the word out there. (Questions for Strum) ChadaevWhat was your motivation for this position? StrumI was a sign language interpreter at home and I was very involved in activities like this in High School, I would like to continue my experience. (Questions for Hershkowitz) HubertWhy do you want this position? HershkowitzI want a chance to work with the executive branch so that organizations are fully informed and so that things run smoothly. ** These appointments will nit take place until the end of the legislative session. ++ Vote on Calahan for Director of Student Affairs15-0-1, approved Vote on Barber for Director of Off-Campus Services12-2-2, approved Vote on Andrews for Director of Public Relations15-0-1, approved Vote on Strum for Director or Disability Se~ieces14-0-2, approved Vote on Hershkowitz for Chief of Staff14-0-2, approved The past few days I have been attending a lot of meetings and a few on the new campus center. I have signed us up for a booth at the Admissions Open House and I would like people to work some time between 8:30-11:30. We also need to get things together for the booth. Student Assembly is next weekend I potentially have a meeting on the recreation center. Sorry about my office hours this week, meetings have been almost all day. They will be posted next week. In regards to JSU and the anti-Semitic remarks written on the signs of the new campus center, I will be meeting with Kathy Santos about it. JSU doesn't feel safe and their may be a resolution coming next week. Executive Agenda To increase the visibility on and off campus so that people know what we do. 1 want to go to our media outlets and I want people to know who I am. My e-board will always attend senate meetings and will be required to give weekly reports. The new director of public relations will be responsible for spreading word on the new logo, our services, and activities. Our reputation has been damaged with court cases and I would like to change that. I want to communicate with organizations and make sure that information is crystal clear so that there is no information lost or confused. I am still trying to get a representational body of organizations so that they can participate in the government process. They also need better inner organizational communication. Questions and concerns are always welcome so please come see me with issues. In regards to SAVAC, President Sutherland worked hard and they really do need a new garage and the construction for that will begin in the summer of 2006. 1 will see that the plans are going as planned and that we properly budget for this. They are also going to need money for an ambulance so we need to address that too. The NYPIRG issue seems to be continuing so I am going to come into the discussion and search for questions and answers. I ultimately want to create a contract for their needs and student needs. This is a topic that people are interested in so I am going to see what I can do with it. The campus center transition will change the face of SA. We will share an office with LEAD Center and SOS so we will be working closely with them. We must create a process of providing for one another and look out for our professional staff.

PAGE 19

SA Vice PresidentScott Robinson Dan's homework took me about 5 minutes to do and I would really like to see that you all have it done but I know that not everyone does. It is really good to do so if you have it, I'd like it. My office hours will be set next week. Director of FinanceNancy Smith We will be interviewing potential people for the Director of Finance and we hope that they will be appointed by Tuesday. I will be amending the financial policy next week in a bill. There will be new procedures for organizations that have events off campus. Director of Off Campus ServicesJustin Barber There will be a parking committee meeting at Sam in the formal lounge. RobertsIs there any way that they can change that time? BarberIt is going to alternate each month fiom Sam to 3pm. VIII. Senator Issues Forum BelserToday it was brought to my attention that there was an anti-Semitic message on the sign of the new campus center. It read "Zionism=Fascism and it stinks like Teri's rotting corpse." Many students now do not feel safe on this campus because of this. JSU members went to UP and found out that nothing could be done. One member of JSU has received threatening e-mails and IM's. This isn't the fust time this semester that I have seen hate speech sprawled around campus. I bring this up now because we have a duty to make the student body aware that there is a problem which must be confronted and we must let the student body know that we will not tolerate hate in any of its ugly forms. When students no longer feel safe on this campus, I think that we have a serious issue that must not be swept under the rug. Thank you to President Farrell for responding to this immediately. Feel fiee to make suggestions on where this should go next. HubertI was walking by Penfield by the bus stop and there is also inappropriate speech written there and has been there for about a week. People who are giving tours can't explain something like that. WestfallJust so you know, Kathy Santos is the Director of Judicial Affairs. Motion to close: Hershkowitz, 2* Mott M. Committee Reports Policy: HershkowitzI nominate senator Chadaev for policy committee chair, 2nd Mott. Committee meeting times will remain the same. Procedure: We didn't meet last week and I don't know about a meeting for this week so I will send out an e-mail letting everyone know. Finance: We recommend SLE.40.49 as is and have amendments for SLE.40.50. I have e-mailed the changes that we made. With the budget appeals issues, they were given 4 business days to get their appeals done and usually they are given about 2 weeks so I would like to accept the appeals until the 8& of April so that we are being fair to all organizations. I would like to meet quickly after senate tonight. WestfallHow are you going to get the word out to all the organizations that the deadline has been extended? MottI will make fliers. Nancy SmithThe or anizations were actually given 7 business days. I put something in their l mail boxes on the 24 of March. They should be given a week from their notification. Involvement: No report. Health and Safetv: No report. Elections: We wrote a bill for the fall senator timeline. We will be meeting this week to go over the election law. CCRT: Erica went downtown with fliers and Jen Hill will be at next weeks meeting and they are setting up the sofiball game this week. MottMotion to nominate senator Chella to Involvement committee, 2d Hubert.

X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.49 Finance Department Accounting ServicesMottThis is recommended by the committee to pass because they need money for the auditors. Nancy SmithAuxiliary Services and Watts negotiated a contract so that auxiliary services contracts with Watts to do the SA accounting records. We use auxiliary services as our on campus affiliation. Vote: 14-0-1, legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.50 Amendment to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyMottMotion to amend. Most of the amendments are grammatical fues. (Refer to packet of changes). 2& Hershkowitz. Vote on amendment: 14-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzThese changes were necessary, we needed to set guidelines for things involving internal control. Vote: 14-0-0, legislation passes 3.) VETO SLE.40.52 Social Justice Club's Get Free TimesFarrellI vetoed this bill because social justice had already paid for some of their issues and this was going to be more of a reimbursement. They are welcome to resubmit a bill. Vote: 0-12-2, legislation fails, veto stands. XI. New Legislation 1 .) RES.40.07 Changing Campus Culture to End Dating ViolenceMottSince this wasn't on the agenda last night I was ready to object to it being added but since it has been added I have more to say. 1 feel that this is an issue over the article and it isn't out responsibility to respond to the issue of fiee speech. The Women's Center doesn't deserve favoritism from the Senate more than anyone else does. We shouldn't even have to vote on this issue. It is obvious that no one here supports date rape and I think there were other places to go with this like a letter to the editor. I feel like some of the senators are going to feel uncomfortable voting no and in that case it wouldn't be a fair vote so at least if you don't want to vote no, please abstain. McTiernanThis has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This just proves that date rape can be lightened and it shouldn't be. I disagree; I don't think that this can go unnoticed. HubertI concur with Senator Mott and I also believe that the original article was malicious toward rape. I believe that we should get everything out there and hear the different views. Even if you vote no, you won't be seen as someone who supports date rape. Women's Center(Brianne Cannon)The quote read by Senator Mott was irrelevant to this topic. The woman quoted supports this issue and this resolution. This isn't a feud with the author, we haven't spoken against him personally and this isn't retaliation. We are the voice of the victims and we are here to care about everyone. This is for the victims and survivors who heave dealt with this issue. When it's brought up if this is a legitimate body, you are the voice of the student body, I don't know where else you would want us to go. I would just want to know why you wouldn't want to support us if you aren't going to. (Speaker goes to Historian) I view this to be petty not to recognize something brought to you by 39 students. We would be addressing this issue regardless.(Brianne Cannon) The senate can make something good of this and be active in stopping it if you support the protection of date rape. Point of information to Dr. ScharfenbergerIs this the appropriate place to bring this? Dr. ScharfenbergerResolutions are meant to show the opinion of the senate; I believe this is an appropriate place to bring this. Womens CenterWe have spoken with the editor of the Oswegonian and this is not an attack on the paper. It is just scary because the situations discussed in the article are probably what actually happen in a date rape situation. It is offensive to say that this isn't the appropriate for the senate. Every student that we have spoken to says that they were offended by that article in some way and were amazed that nothing had been done yet. Survivors need to feel safe speaking out. RobertsIn the Rights and Responsibilities of the students it says they have the freedom from personal violence. This comes very close to it and also close to a hate crime. There is no disclaimer in the paper saying that it is not the opinions of all of the writers; even the Get Free Times has a disclaimer. As an opinion writer for the Oswegoninan, I couldn't print some of the things that I wanted to print. The author of this article is paid by SA money.

PAGE 21

WestfallMotion to amend line 35. You can only represent what the senate feels not all of the students. 2"d Hershkowitz. President ParrellPlease stay on the issue we don't want any personal attacks and vote with your conscience. Hershkowitz1 concur with President Farrell. The resolution isn't to single out the author, it is not about free speech, the resolution is saying that senate doesn't condone making fun of date rape and using "date rap" as an example of making fun of date rape. The Oswegonian has every right to print what they want and it should contain a disclaimer but it doesn't have to. If one person was offended or victimized by this article then we have the right to hear their issue. We do need to watch what we say and not pinpoint people. This is the opinion of the senate alone and I would think that we wouldn't condone making fun of anyone for anything. MapesYield to BelserIf this were an issue of free speech or an attack on the author I would be against it. We ere taking a stand that rape is not a joke. I have been close with someone who experienced date rape and I can tell you that it doesn't stop with the victim; it goes into the family as well. Passing a resolution is a trivial thing for me, sexual assault isn't funny. HubertI feel that the resolution goes further than we would like it to. In his article he is trying to raise awareness in a comedic way. I would like to take that part out of the resolution where he is mentioned. So we will be striking 2nd, 3d, be it further resolved, be it finally resolved. 2nd Mott. MottI think that this is a good resolution. His point was not to make fun of rape. It is an honest debate about the definition of date rape. It misrepresents the point of the article, no one here would want to support date rape. Herskowitz: Motion to move, 2d Mapes Back to Order 10:08 MottThe women's center tried to say that they wouldn't take the course of writing a letter to the editor. He has always printed articles that are in opposition to his comments. There is no reason that they couldn't write a letter to the editor. Beckyield to Women's CenterWhen we wrote a letter to the editor about take back the night I didn't give it to Mr. Olenick, I gave it to the Editor in Chief. They assured me that it wouldn't be tampered with. The whereas's in the resolution are meant to say why you are doing something. This gives you the information on where we got our background and it will be better for your historian. HershkowitzIf we amend anything I think that this one goes too far. This is an opinion of what we want to happen and this amendment guts the resolution. MapesIf we were to amend it, we would also need to amend the further resolved. We are discussing a resolution on date rape, don't make it personal. BacanskasI don't agree with how the amendment guts the bill, I have another amendment. HubertThe amendment is a lot but it still says a lot on its own and it's not giving any other sources. MapesI am going to vote no for this, it defeats the purpose of the resolution. Vote on amendment: 1-13-0, amendment fails. MottYou say that it isn't personal but by putting only one example in the resolution it makes it personal. BeckYield to Brianne CannonYou shouldn't be afiaid to make a stand. I was advised that this was the best course of action and I am glad that we have this dialog. Think of your constituents and satires in general about date rape. BackanskasMotion to amendline 7-10 "jokes, satires, and mockeries making light of dating violence.. .." 2nd Hershkowitz. BeckYield to Women's CenterWhat is the reason for taking out the example, it is an important part of the resolution. We aren't asking for a course of action. BacanskasI think that some of us are uncomfortable using that as an example. We said media so that some time the TV station doesn't do it as well. It makes me feel better about voting yes. Women's CenterI feel that people would vote the same with or without the example in there. BacanskasIndirectly it goes back to the author no matter what and we don't want to do that.

PAGE 22

Women's CenterWhen you publish something you should be held accountable. This isn't a personal attack but you need an example to look back on. BarraThis amendment doesn't want to refer to one media or one specific example. It just makes a more general reference to jokes. MapesI think that it makes the resolution more general and less personal, it will be easier to vote on. WardI concur with senators Mapes, Barra, and Bacanskas, my comfort level is now at ease. ChadaevI think that we should stop deliberating and move things along. HershkowitzYield to Brianne CannonYou don't create a resolution without a call to reason. You need a call for action. This itself is the challenge; I don't mean to take force. If you are committed against satires, this would be the one to speak out about. This is the catalyst that formed it and it needs to be addressed. BacanskasI agree but I think that it will help to get the resolution passed, it just wont have a direct example. Women's CenterThe whereas's the most specific, they are the explanation and are fairly general. BeckI think that everyone has formed their opinions by now. I think that the amendment is a compromise and that the resolution is still strong without it. HubertMotion to vote on amendment, 2"d Bacanskas. Vote on amendment: 11-3-0, amendment passes. HershkowitzMotion to end discussion at 10:45 and limit speaking time to 1 minute. 2nd Ward. MapesMotion to vote, 2d Ward Vote on legislation: 13-0-1, legislation passes. 2.)

(Floor to Matt)I am an information science major and I have designed websites such as the rock the vote website and some for other organizations. HershkowitzWhy do you want this position? WioneckI think that it would be good for my resume and I think that I could bring a lot to the position. RobertsWhat did you do for rock the vote? WioneckI designed the layout and updated their website. Vote on position: 18-0-1, approved. Next week I am hopefully going to be appointing the director of finance and the human resource management director. If you want to see the changes I have made in the budget come to the finance meeting. Right now there is going to be a $1.50 increase in full time students. This week I had a meeting with Dr.Scharfenberger about the budget, met with auxiliary services, and NYPIRG about the contract. Coming up I have meetings with Cynthia Donovan, Richard Hughes, Mike Pastella, and President Stanley. We are going to have an e-board meeting this Thursday at 7:30.

IfI met with Cathy Santos and she is equally concerned with the graffiti issue. She also needs students for some boards and committees. There is a parking committee meeting tomorrow at 8am. They want students to go so if you have a problem they are ready to listen. Thank you to the open house volunteers. Student Assembly is this weekend and there is one more spot open that is paid for so if you are interested let me know. The LSU bill is on special orders because it is rather important that I get this taken care of and it is only a transfer of money not asking for money from us. My office hours will be regulated soon probably by the end of next week. Vice President: Scott Robinson I commend everyone for last weeks meeting, it was long and painful but everyone had good points to make. We just need to be sure that things don't get personal in the meetings. The resolution was to say that you don't support date rape and with the amendment you did that. Just be carefid if you are going to sign on to something that has been written for the Oswegonian. Your name doesn't have to go on it if you don't want it to. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith I have handed out the senate account updates. The Director of Finance appointment will hopefully be next Tuesday. So far you have passed 28 legislations. There are deposits in the accounts from Arts Alive and fiom Cheerleading because they were both unable to attend the events that we were funding.

(Position accepted). HubertThe graffiti that was near Penfield has been cleaned up. Also, SAPB may not be able to compensate for the minimum wage increase and they were concerned about that. WestfallMonday at faculty assembly we are going to be voting on the college hour so student attendance is important to us. HershkowitzAre the voting on the final proposal or the idea of it? WestfallIt is on the projected time given. Motion to close: Mapes, 2d Hubert MI. Committee Reports Policv: We didn't meet last week, we will meet Thursday at 7 in the cafd.

FarrellThey don't even have a phone in their ofice to use. Vote: 18-0-1, legislation passes X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.51 2005-2006 Budget: HershkowtizMotion to re-refer for one more week because we just got more appeals and we have a few things to adjust. 2"d Ward. 2.) SLE.40.53 Paintball Club Jerseys: HubertMotion to amend, we cut their total price down to $440 so that they can get enough jerseys for the amount of people that are playing at one time. Paintball ClubWe play against other teams and we have proved to be very skilled. We need jerseys for tournaments and we want them to have Oswego colors and have player's names on the back. We have about 20 tournament players and about 40 recreational players and they all want jerseys. People recognize a college by their jerseys. SwennsonDo you play indoor or outdoor? Paintball ClubWe play both it really depends on the weather. The tournaments are indoors. SwennsonIs it a full tough jersey that you are looking to get? Paintball ClubYes, it is what you wear as a top completely. It is a personal item with your name on it. SwennsonThese jerseys are going to serve as protection to them. Paintball ClubWe would wear the jerseys at the involvement fair and at booths that we have. SwennsonHow many members did you have last year? Paintball ClubWe had about 40 last year and have 60 now. We have an e-mail list of about 200 though. Director SmithI was under the impression that jerseys were something that could be left within the club and now you are saying that they would be personal items. Paintball ClubThey wouldn't be passed down, it is just not done in this sport, they take too much wear and tear. Director SmithUsually if you are getting jerseys we require you to pay half and then have them stay within the organization. k Paintball ClubThe reason that we don't have these yet for ourselves is because of the cost. Some people are able to get sponsored but not everyone. Director SmithThis would be seen as using SA money to pay for personal items. Paintball ClubMost of our items that we have and buy are disposable anyway. We spend most of our money on paint or free play days and I feel like jerseys would be similar to that. Jerseys last for 3-4 years which is how long someone is in the club if they join as a sophomore or a freshmen. HershkowitzThe concern here is that SA just doesn't have a lot of money right now and we were under the impression that these jerseys could be swapped. We also didn't know that you wanted to put names on the jerseys because that may cost more. At least with the money we are giving you, you could get some jerseys for now. Paintball ClubWe have done some fundraising but we usually donate what we raise. Most people who participate in the club want a jersey. To screen print the name on the back is about the same cost as not. You just don't see teams that swap jerseys. HershkowitzThe concern is that you will be keeping them personally. Paintball ClubWe planned on buying 10 blank jerseys that could be personalized by players later. HershkowitzMaybe for now you can order all blank jerseys. Paintball ClubIf we buy blank jerseys now and have them personalized later it is going to cost us a lot more. President FarrellThe financial policy says that we cannot fund you and allow you to keep them. We could only allow it if we drop the cost by half. StrumHow much is it for a jersey? Paintball ClubThey are about $65. ChadaevCould you order generic jerseys and then get stickers that could be removed later? Paintball ClubWe are not allowed to have any kind of stickers on out jerseys for play and by the time you were to take the name off, the jersey wouldn't be worth passing down.

PAGE 27

HubertWe aren't able to fund you the fill amount. We suggest that you buy 16 jerseys for now and we will pay half the cost and you can do what you want with them. Motion to amend line 12 from $2000 to $440,2* Ward. HershkowitzI concur with senator Hubert, this will be a good start for them. Vote on amendment: 15-1 -2, amendment passes. HubertIt is close to the end of the year this will be a good start for you, you can always put a bill in next semester. Vote on bill: 16-0-2, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.54 Fall 2005 Elections: MapesThe dates are spread out so it gives people enough time to run if they want to. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.55 Social Justice Club's Get Free Times: RobertsWe have paid for the past few weeks out of pocket and for this year we want just 2 more issues. We are asking for exactly the amount that we need. Vote on bill: 16-0-2, legislation passes. XI. New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.57 Frisbee ClubRefer to finance for 1 week. 2.)

Motion to approve the agenda: Belser, 2nd Ward Public Comment NYPlRG We have recently had a huge victory on the higher ed campaign. There are no tuition hikes and there is actually an increase in SUNY's budget. The reason that there were no increases was due to all of the student action on this issue. Last weekend we did the lakeshore cleanup around Glimmerglass Lagoon and we also had our cram-a-car food drive on Sunday. The reform Albany lobby day is coming up soon as well. Also, the state board elections are coming up, voting will be the 25"-27". Phi Beta Lambda We are requesting money for the national conference that we wish to attend. We recently went to the state conference and did very well. The bill is for $1640 so that we can send enough people for the conference. Frisbee Club We have now been operating for three semesters and we have had no funding. We are now asking for $100 for Frisbees and $300 for t-shirts so that we have matching jerseys when we compete next year. Kevin Sutherland The weather has been awesome but it is supposed to rain soon. Don't wony, May will be better. Enjoy your meeting! Executive Report SA PresidentIan Farrell Tonight I have Sean Green here for the Human Resources Manager position and Matt Andino for the Supreme Court. (Sean Green) I would like to set up a standard for hiring in these SA positions and have a set a job description for them. I am willing to take on anything. HershkowitzWhy do you think you are qualified for this position? Sean GreenI am a Human Resource major and I have completed most of the requirements and I have also helped with the hiring process of DA's. Vote: 16-0-1, approved (Matt Andino) I am a junior public justice major. I want this position because I think that it would be a good resume builder and learning experience for me. I am going to go to law school and I hope to be a judge.

PAGE 30

HershkowitzDo you have any legal experience? Matt AndinoI have an internship this summer with the DA office. Vote: 16-0-1, approved Next week I will have other appointments for the Director of Finance, assistants, and academic affairs. I have had meetings this week with Mike Paestella, Richard Hughes about the campus center, President Stanley and Joe Grant about my position in SA, Sally Wilkinson and SHAC about raising health insurance fees. I have upcoming meetings about the Ontarian, the campus center, and LSU. Student Assembly was this past weekend and the networking with other SA's was very useful. They elected the new offices for Student Assembly as well. I have an amendment to the financial policy. Right now it says that an hourly worker cannot hold a stipend position. We are going to allow it for this year and create interest in those jobs. I have a meeting with Jerry Desantis about the SAVAC garage I am also still working on the NYPIRG contract. Vice PresidentScott Robinson Student assembly was fh; the business meeting was pretty rough. I talked to other schools about online voting. Cortland passed their budget in 5 minutes; let's see if we can beat that. I recommend that if you have the opportunity and plan on being a senator again, that you go to student assembly. Student Involvement Awards will be held on the 27'h at 5 pm, I hope to see everyone there. Director of Finance: Nancy Smith There is going to be an amendment on internal controls. I have a job interview in NYC tomorrow and I will return on Friday so I would recommend that fmance committee meet on Friday or over the weekend so that I can get updates. Director of Student Affairs: Pat Callahan I recently met with Mike Paestella about the involvement fair and we are going to have two of them. The bigger one will be September 7'h and we are hoping to get popcorn or cotton candy to have at the fair. We will also need 20-30 volunteers to help set up and take down. I also had a meeting with the Director of Penfield Library about the SA videos. VII. Senator Issues Forum ChadaevThere was some miscommunication on the committee meeting time. It is at 7pm in the library cafe. MottI have been meeting with Mike Flaherty about getting dental and eye coverage on the insurance policy. Please bring this up in your hall councils and see if people would be interested in these options. I will send out an e-mail with the adjusted costs if they are added. WardStudent Assembly was a great experience and I encourage you to go next year. The workshops are informative. WestfallOn Monday the Faculty Assembly postponed the action on college hour.

SLE.40.57 Frisbee Club: MottMotion to amendWe didn't have the exact numbers from them for the cost of shirts and Frisbees but we cut the amount in half to $200. Strike lines 1417 so that they can choose how to split up the money. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes Vote: 16-01, legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.5 1 2005-2006 Budget: Mott: The first amendment is to change the SA fee increase to $2.00 because the rest of the budget is depending on that. BelserI think that this amendment is necessary. It is a minimal increase and it is going to keep SA going in all of the funding that they do. HershkowitzI talked to my hall council and there wasn't any opposition to this increase. MottPeople that I asked said that they wouldn't even notice the increase because they don't know what they pay now. RobertsOnline the SA fee says $82 is that going to be a problem? NancyThat is just a projected price but I will get it changed. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes (Amendments by the finance committee) Men's ~u~b~Game costs changedto $1250 and CIPP changed to $900. Outing ClubWe gave an extra $2000 to events and travel.

President FarrellThat is what I am going to find out, I was told that their sales are doing quite well. BelserWhat is the cost of a pre-ordered yearbook? Director SmithI believe they are $65. DohertyWhy does the sales manager not have a salary?

PAGE 32

0 President FarrellThey don't have anyone for that position. HUBACI wanted to move them under SAPB because they do pretty much the same things but there were a lot of logistic problems with that. For now we are keeping them under a separate organization with the same amount. NYPIRGJust moved them to a different place in the budget. CDRaised that to $5000. Tier 2 fundingChanged it to $3 1,000 and the other $5000 went towards the Ontarian and the cash reserve. RobertsHow many Tier 2 organizations are there for next year? 0 Director SmithThere is a small increase in the number but many of the big ones from last year moved up to Tier 3 again. HershkowitzLast year we increased the Tier 2 funding and we were fine with it, I think that it will be fine this year too. 2"d to all amendments: Hershkowitz HershkowitzMost of the organizations that asked got increases. I agree that the Ontarian should stay around for this year to give it a chance. 0 President FarrellThe total income is different from the total spending, is that a problem? Director SmithWe need to decrease the spending by $1000.47. HershkowitzI think that we should take it out now and fix it. President FarrellI think that we should take it from the cash reserve and $.47 from the Organizational contingency. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes MottWe spent a lot of time getting these numbers and I think that what we have is good. Vote: 15-0-1, legislation passes. X. New Legislation 1 .)

This past weekend we went to the House of Mercy in Rochester and did serve-a-meal with Habitat for Humanity. Coming up we have our board elections and voting will be in the Union. Guests of the Senate Mayor Gosek and representatives from Mayor's office. Executive Report SA President: Ian Farrell Tonight I have Jim Middleton here who is going to be the assistant Director of Disability Affairs. (Floor goes to Jim Middleton) I came to this position because Dan Preston approached me and said that I would bring a unique perspective to the position. I don't know much about it but I will do the best that I can in this position. It was a big adjustment coming to this campus and I have been told that I handled it admirably well. I know that I will need a lot of help in this position but I will do the job the best that I can. HershkowitzWhat is your major? Jim MiddletonI am a business administration major and will be doing human resource management. (Ian Farrell) Also tonight I have Dan Tuscarella for Director of Finance and Kristin Beck for Director of Academic Affiirs. Dan will be here later he had a class confliction. (Floor goes to Kristin Beck) Ian approached me about this position and I feel like I bring a lot of knowledge to this position because of my previous experience in SA. I am looking forward to doing this job. Vote: 1 7-01, approved This week's meetings: I met with Michelle about the yearbook and I wasn't aware of their Jonstens contract so I need to review it. I also met with Dr. Scharfenberger about different SA issues. Meetings that I have coming up include one on campus center arena, faculty assembly, SAVAC, SAPB & HUBAC. Congratulations to the senate for getting the budget passed so quickly.

PAGE 35

There is legislation for an account transfer because I am helping SAPB pay for May Day food. Good luck to those senators that are not going to be returning and to those that are, I will need you contact information so that I can update you about the involvement fair. Vice President, Scott Robinson There is a resolution tonight for Professor Harrigan because he is going to be leaving after the school year. He is an awesome teacher; he challenges me a lot and his papers are a great learning experience. I hope that you will pass the resolution. The student involvement awards are tomorrow. I went to the city council meeting and I think that CCRT is very crucial. I was just wondering what is going to be done to keep it going? Mayor Gosek Traditionally we are involved much sooner in the year and I think that things can be dealt with sooner now that we have worked some things out. The Greater Chamber of Commerce is now involved and I think that they can bring more business in. CCRT was started in the 70's and has been up and down since then. It's original mission was to create a better relationship between the city and the University. I have tried to promote that relationship and if you have any suggestions on how to continue that I would love to hear your ideas. We have some finding available for CCRT and I will be increasing it for next year. We have had many paid and unpaid interns and that helps people get informed on how the city runs. It is hard for our people to do all of the work because they are doing full time jobs as well. We would love your input on how we can make this work. Jen Hill I have been told that the students don't feel welcomed by the businesses in town and I would like to change that. I want to see people working with the city so that businesses become more welcoming. My goal is to be more involved in that and get you more involved in that. MapesDo you have any ideas on how we can keep an easy going structure to out meetings like yours? Mayor Gosek We address most of our issues and debate them in committee meetings. The meeting is common council is to talk about the results of the meetings. It appears that our meetings run smoothly, but the committee meetings can be long and drawn out. We have many committees at the city level that research and debate the topics and them bring them to the floor at the meeting. Jen Hill The issues themselves are solved at a committee level and by the time that it gets to the floor it is more of a notification process. Smaller groups help for presentation purposes. Also, if you know who will be the chair of CCRT next year make sure that they are well informed and can get things going early. BelserWhat is the city doing to bring jobs to the area to keep gads around? Mayor Gosek I want to create more fill time jobs and so far I have created a business friendly environment. The atmosphere that existed was anything but business friendly. Ruby Tuesday, Lowes, and Dunkin Donuts are some businesses that have created jobs and there were jobs created when there needed to be water lines and traffic lights put in at these locations. Many management positions are available at these places. Small business is the backbone of this country. The nuclear industry has done well in Oswego County and I would like to bring more nuclear power to this area. You have to be proactive in a situation like this. Elective officers should be positive about the community and be proactive to help it. We will be happy to listen if any students have ideas because without this college, we would be in dire straights. It helps a lot to prosper the economy. Jen Hill This community has many small businesses but we are very entrepreneur friendly. There is a young professional's organization that is starting. We are assessing what we have and where we need to work. It is a misunderstanding to think that we don't want gads to stay in the area.

PAGE 36

MottIs there still the idea of building windmills for power? Jen Hill That is still a possibility and it is in the research stage. The problem with wind power is the number if mills needed and the space that we have available. Mayor Gosek John Smith from Cape Cod was responsible for the research and idea of using wind mills in Cape Cod but his ideas were rejected. The next place that he came was to Oswego. His efforts were to bring off-shore windmills and we are still working with him on his ideas. It is expensive but it is still in the works. We have talked about a center for research on power for the area. We are trying to stay on top of the issue the best we can. (Back to President Farrell and Dan Tuscarella) I am a junior going for my MBA in accounting and I have worked at OCNB and I was Kevin's Chief of Staff. HershkowitzWhy do you want this position and why are you qualified? Dan TuscarellaI have learned a lot about SA in the past year or so and I have a lot of past experiences with Banks, etc. HershkowitzAre you prepared to put in the hours that are required for this position? Dan TuscarellaYes, I have cleared my hours at the bank and I will have the time to put in. Vote: 17-0-1, approved. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Than you to the senate for passing the budget. An update on the accounts: 6501-$3375.22,6502$4436.00,6505$270.21'6506$90. There is a bill tonight with internal controls amendments and this is required by the SUNY Board of Trustees that we guard or assets and there is an amendment for petty cash. Director of Student AffairsPat Calaghan I met with the library about the SA DVD's and they want to continue that. They would also like to have us purchase Discmans for people to use in the library. The involvement fair is going to be September 7~. Director of Off-Campus AffairsJustin Barbur I really hope that you pass the resolution for Professor Harrigan. 1 would also like to thank Andy Drogo for all of his help this year. Director of Human Resource ManagementSean Green 1 will be meeting with Cynthia this week and I will have a report on that meeting. Director of Academic AffairsKristin Beck I just wanted to talk to you about some of the ideas that I have for next year. I would really like to improve the student advisement center, I was a peer advisor and I just think that its very important. I would also like to bring back the course satisfactioddescription book. We ask professors to give a description of the class and then get some feedback from the students. I would like to help promote the book exchange service between students. Does anyone have any other ideas? HershkowitzMaybe get some information on the SUNY Assessment. Kevin SutherlandLook into other grad programs that the school could offer. Bacanskasthe possibility of a 24 hour computer lab somewhere on campus. WardMore research programs for other majors. VIII. Senator Issues Forum HershkowitzThis is my last meeting as a senator and I have had a blast. Thank you to everyone from this year for making it that way. RobertsI would like to thank Allen for all of his hard work. I also support the passing of the Professor Harrigan resolution. He is the best teacher I have had. BacanskasI would also like to thank Allen, he is the one who got me involved and I am very glad that I did. Motion to close: Mapes, 2& Belser

IX. Committee Reports Policy We met Thursday and we went over the projects for next year and the appointments procedure. Procedure: We met on Thursday and made amendments to the senator rights and responsibilities. The amendment just narrows it down. Finance: We met on Monday and for SLE.40.59 we voted to recommend with an amendment, for SLE.40.60 we recommend, SLE.40.61 we have minor amendments, SLE.40.64 we recommend. We also talked about the reserve and putting money aside for the campus center. Involvement: Thank you to the committee; hope to see some of you next year. Elections: Thank you to the committee and this summer we are going to work to get the election law revised. Health and Safetv: Thank you to the committee, have a good summer. CCRT: I think that it is very important to have city reps here tonight. The student relationship with the residents and the relationship with our government and the city's are very important. Next year I would like to have a committee instead of their only being on representative. Thank you for those of you who came to the pizza party tonight. We are going to be playing softball at Legends field at 5:30 on Thursday and the rain date is next Thursday. Thank you to Senator Mapes, Senator Bacanskas and Vice President Robinson for attending the city meeting. (JSacanskas) The meeting was very interesting and everything was very quick to pass. They have good communication and that is something that should be maintained. X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.58 Senator DutiesHershkowitzMotion to amendin section 10, we changed must to should and in section 11 we added bi-weekly for the participation in the online journal. We are going to try it with these changes and see how it goes, we can always change things later. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzWe redefined the senator at large and gave them responsibilities and also some for the off-campus senators. We are going to see how this goes and change it later if necessary. DurginMotion to amendAdd section 12 to say that off-campus senators should participate in CCRT as designated by the chair. 2nd Mott. HershkowitzMy concern with this is why are you keeping it just off campus senators and should that change go under the structure bill? Maybe we should update the CCRT part before we amend this. I don't know if the chair has the power over the senators. DurginI chose off campus senators now because they are a minority and if it is mandatory then it can go as far as we want it to. I just want participation in some way. HershkowitzCCRT right now doesn't have members in its structure. MottI think that it is good because it is outlining duties of off campus senators. KinnearI have no objection to this amendment but I think that you do need to change the committee structure. RobertsWhat if it is recommended that they participate? BacanskasI think that you will have to rewrite the structure of the committee. HershkowitzStrike "by the chair" as a friendly amendment. DurginIt is still their discretion either way. Vote on amendment: 17-1 -0, amendment passes. Vote on bill: 18-0-0, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.59 Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership ConferenceHubertwe amended the bill by adding a breakdown of the bill. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes Representative from Phi Beta LambdaWe have many people interested in going to this conference. Our organization isn't that well known and if we went it would get recognition for the college and for us. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.60 Amendment to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyPresident FarrellWe are taking a section out because student services is having problems filling all of their positions. HubertI think that this is appropriate.

PAGE 38

MottI hope that there is more work done next year to get more students for the jobs. ScharfenbergerHistorically we try to extend information to students to get them interested. HershkowitzWe want to repeal this because it has an affect on the student services. Director SmithI asked Andy to make more appealing fliers and I think that they are necessary for people to be interested in the jobs. I request that it go back into the financial policy after this year. President FarrellI intend on promoting the jobs to freshmen as well and going to the employment office to see what they can do. We don't know if we have enough time now to fill the positions before next year. McTiemanIt seems that the main problem was not enough promotion. HubertThis is repealing something that can be put back in at a later time. It is not final if we take it out now. HershkowitzI yield to Jen ClarkI receive two paychecks from SA because I am a manager and I work an hourly position. It isn't really in mine or Cindy's duties to promote these jobs and we are both really busy. If someone is unable to work and I cant cover for them, Cindy has to take the shift and then get. behind on her work. This needs to get passed right now and I think that promoting it will be good for next year. President FarrellMy intention is to put this back and it is Sean and Melissa's job to get these jobs promoted and I know they will work on that. I just want to take this out for now. McTiemanSo this is definitely going to go back in next year? President FarrellYes, as soon as the positions are filled it will go back in. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.61 Amendment #2 to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyDirector SmithIt is required that we have internal control guidelines. Everything stated in the amendment are things that we need. HubertMotion to amendWe just made some spelling changes and took out Robert's Rules and added the definition of petty cash. 2Dd Ward. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes. Vote on bill: 16-0-1, legislation passes. 5.) SLE.40.62 Combination of Senate FundsHershkowitzThis is something that we do every year and it makes it easier to have all of the money in one account. HubertFriendly amendment, 6503 should be 6506. Vote on bill: 17-01, legislation passes. XI. Special Orders 1 .)SLE.40.63 Executive Account TransferPresident FarrellSAPB is running out of money and they asked me to help them out with food for may day so I am going to give them $1750 and $1250 of that is coming fiom account 5607. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.64 SAPB May DayMottThis is for the extra $500 that is out of 6502. WestfallChange "for" to "to" SAPB. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.65 Reserve FundMottWe have $6000 remaining so this one will stay at $4000 and a new campus CS could be an option for the other $2000. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. XU. New Legislation 1 .) RES.40.08 Thank you Andy Drogo BeckAndy has really helped me a lot this year and he was a great asset to the e-board.

He opens people eyes to every differing view. It is a shame that he is leaving this campus. SutherlandI actually have a paper due for him. I am also very disappointed that he wasn't chosen to stay. If you had the chance to have him then you are fortunate and if you didn't then please understand where we are coming from. BelserHe wasn't always politically correct but he does always have a contrary point of view and I never even had him. RobertsHe is by far the best professor that I have had at teaching how to argue. We always end up having long discussions and he will always shut me down. He tells you how to argue correctly. Motion to pass by acclimation: Roberts, 2" Belser.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve minutes: Crocker, 2nd Belsar IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda: Farrell, 2"d Ward V. Public Comment Meteorology Club We will soon be attending the North Eastern Storm Conference. Last year we took 8 people and this year we are able to take 12. We were a Tier 2 this year so we saved $500 of that specifically for this conference. However, we still need about $900 more. This trip is going to be about $1 30 per person and that will cover the conference, breakfast, lodging, etc. It is a huge impact for us to go to this conference. We learn a lot from other schools and learn how we can improve here. RobinsonAre the individuals going expecting to pay any money on their own? Meteorology Rep.Yes they will pay about $30 a piece. RobinsonHow many people are there in your club? Meteorology Rep.There are about 30 now. WestfallWhat does the $900 cover? Meteorology Rep.That will cover food, travel, lodging, gas, etc. Habitat for Humanity This year we are taking the 5h annual trip to the Alternative Spring Break and we are going to Baltimore MD. When we are there we are going to be helping with the production of houses. Students that are interested apply by application and this year we had 25 spaces and 25 people applied. We are asking for $2000 for the cost of the trip. That would cover transportation, gas, food, housing, etc. We are doing fundraising this semester such as the bowl-a-thon and bake sale. Each student going on the trip is asked to pay $1 00. We have people from all grade levels and from many different organizations going on this trip. We are sure to promote SUNY Oswego on our trip as well. BelserDoes the National Habitat group help you pay? HfH repNo, because we are so small we don't get any money. HershkowitzHave you worked with any organizations to see if they would help you fund the trip as well? HfH repNo we haven't. HubertHow was the site for the trip chosen?

PAGE 3

HM repWe chose it because they had room for us to bring 25 people and that's about how many seats we were looking for. We almost doubled the amount we took last year. NYPIRG We have started planning for the Student Action meeting which helps us to reach out to the campus. The meeting will be Wednesday, February 9 at 7:OOPM in 105 Lanigan. We have a few student speakers already set up to come to the meeting. We will talk about all of the different groups that we have within NYPIRG such as Campaigns, Elections, Hunger and Homeless. (Speaker switched to a board member) As a representative, I get to vote on the budget. We have a bill tonight about the question of referendum. NYPIRG and SA agreed to the question on the bill already. Please honor the question put into the contract and vote for the bill. Oswegonian We are currently looking to upgrade our computers and software for next year. The Oswegonian is a student run newspaper that produces weekly issues. We have been around since 193 5. Out goals include increasing leadership, getting more interesting stories, printing the front and back in color. We went to the Palladium Times to see if they would be able to work with us on printing in color and they said they would let us do it. Both our hardware and software is old and needs to be replaced. The things that we would need are Quark layout software, Photoshop, Mac Operating System 10, Power Mac G5. We also need to update our graphing capability. Some of our editors are willing to give up their salaries to help pay for these improvements but we are still going to need some money. President SutherlandHave you talked to anyone fiom graphic design to see if you could get some software from them? Oswegonian EditorThe only problem with that could be software registering. President SutherlandI just suggest that you look into it, it could be a possibility. RobinsonWhat happened to the Senate Report that you used to print? Oswegonian EditorThe person that we put in charge of that either wouldn't go to the meetings or would go and take bad reports so until we can find someone to do it permanently, we could publish the bills that come up for the week. Director SmithYou may need to talk to Cynthia Donovan about your editors' salaries that may not be allowed. There shouldn't be finds used for payroll to buy things for the club. Oswegonian EditorI will set up a meeting to talk to her about that. HubertHow soon do you need to have this money for the computers? Oswegonian EditorWell it is the sooner the better, but we are going to printing in color definitely by the fall. Director DrogoWould your website be updated if you got new software because currently it isn't being updated. Oswegonian EditorWe have problems with the Webmaster and we wanted to get Dream Weaver so that we can update every week. M. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland I am really glad that we were able to get through the constitution last week, it was important that we got that finished. Last week Director Drogo gave you my report because I had to work and was unable to make it back for the meeting in time but I want to bring some of those issues back to you this week. As for updates to the financial policy, I want to work on inventory, fundraising, criteria for funding, studentlemployee payroll, travel guidelines, reimbursement approval, and internal control guidelines. Next week I will have more updates on the SAVAC issue.

PAGE 4

I am looking into getting a CD to purchase a van for student organization transportation. We need to build a reserve. As for account 6501, Dan Tuscarella works at OCNB so he is going to get information on interest rates and things like that. I believe we would have to have $125,000 but then the interest earned could cover things such as minimum wage increases and other issues. My ofice hours have been posted and most of the other directors have as well. Feel free to stop in and see me or call if you need to talk to me about anything. Vice PresidentKristin Beck I am also really glad that we were able to get through the Constitution; it was a headache last year and I'm glad that we got it done this year. Please include committee meeting times in your committee reports tonight. I would prefer if the candidates in this year's election kept their campaigns outside of the Senate meetings. In the beginning of last semester Senator Mott was elected to be budget council rep and then she was chosen to be chair of finance. These two positions create a conflict so she stepped down from Budget Council Rep and we need to elect someone else. RobinsonI nominate Senator Farrell, 2" Bacanskas. Crocker: Motion to close, 2* Belser Director of FinanceNancy Smith Budget council is coming up the weekend of the 12" and 13" and will also be held the 19' and 20". We plan to have it from 9am-4pm and I would like you to look at the financial policy and come to me if you have any concerns or issues. This week I will be presenting at Direct Assembly at 6Pm in 105 Lanigan and 1 will be talking about the budget procedure. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols There will be Direct Assembly Thursday in 105 Lanigan at 6PM. I will be going to a meeting on Date Rape Awareness; I have been working with many other organizations on this issue. The Movie Project is underway, movies are being purchased and the movies will soon be available in the library. WI. Senator Issues Forum RobinsonThere are some people on my floor that are mad about the rule of "NO snowball fights." Is there a reason for this? o HersbkowibI believe that it has to do with liability, people end up chucking ice and people get hurt. o President SutherlandIt was the actions of a few individuals that have ruined it for everyone. UP will get you in trouble if they see you throwing snowballs. CrockerThis month is Black History Month, I would like you to all come celebrate at the events. HershkowitzThis semester is very important so you should really try to stay on top of things and make sure that you go to your committee meetings, do your job as a senator. MottIn regards to the Oswegonian bill, I know that there may be some issues with the payroll and we are getting that figured out but if you have any other questions or concerns with the bill, please feel free to contact me. WestfallI just wanted to congratulate the people who were involved in Laker Days, it went very well and the attendance was great. MetcalfeThis semester I am taking 14 meteorology credits, an internship, and WTOP so I am going to have to resign from being a senator, I just don't have the time. MapesMotion to close, 2"d Coleman. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: We didn't meet last week and this week we are going to be meeting Thursday at 7 and we will be going over the bi-law changes and the Constitution. Procedure: We will be meeting Thursday at 8:30 in the SA office and we will be going over the bi-laws changes and senator rights and responsibilities changes.

Public Comment Racquetball We went to our 3d tournament this weekend and we did better than we have ever done. Oneonta and Binghamton were in the tournament and we lost to Binghamton and won against Oneonta. We just want to keep you updated on how our club is doing. NYPrnG The Student Action Meeting has been moved to Wednesday the 16~ at 6PM in 105 Lanigan Hall. We were recently in the paper for our position on the tuition increase. This month is Raise Your Voice Month, we will be participating in many activities along with this including Tsunami relief, open mic, community service, etc. Tonight is our bill for the referendum question, please support us. M. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland I have been doing some number crunching and there will be an increase of our budget in the 2005-2006 year so that will probably mean an increase in the SA fee again. I have found a $30,000 CD for a van that we could potentially use for organization transportation. There are increases in a lot of aspects of our budget such as health insurance, Paychex, Student Services, officer insurance, the Ontarian, and also all of the Tier 3 organizations. If we were to get a van for organizations, the gas would be very expensive so this is still something that we are working on doing. HershkowitzI believe that in years past they have wanted to do this as well and have decided against it because of the cost. Director NicholsI found that it has been thought about but no one decided to do it. Dr. ScharfenbergerSome people tried to get this done about 6 years ago and didn't want to end up with the repair costs like SAVAC does. So the van CD that we found is about $35,000, we could also use this money for SAVAC and their new ambulance that they will need in a few years. At the end of this year, they will have $1 0,000 saved to go towards the ambulance. A new ambulance costs them about $1 10,000 and they won't want to buy a used one. Director NicholsDo you know what they could get for their current ambulance when they try to sell it? President SutherlandNo, I don't know I have not discussed that with them.

PAGE 8

HershkowitzDo you have any idea how much you are going to have to raise the SA fee? President SutherlandI am not sure how much but I know that there will be an increase. HershkowitzRegarding the Tier 3 organizations, they don't have to go back to the amount that they used to receive. President SutherlandYes, we can save money that way and also there will be about $15,000 going towards the SAVAC garage a year so we have that increase in the budget. Vice PresidentKristin Beck We currently need another member for Elections committee. If you have any questions on the upcoming elections, go to Senator Mapes. I still need information on the new Senators that are coming, I would like to train them all at the same time. HershkowitzA point of information; On the agenda SLE.40.26 is the Oswegonian bill and I have the Metoerology as the same thing. Vice President BeckThe meteorology bill is SLE.40.29. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo I am passing out brochures that have our new logo, these are going to be available to people on campus and the idea is to get across how many organizations we really fund. We are also printing one in full color and that will be going out to incoming freshmen. HershkowitzHow much is it going to cost us to print these in color? Director DrogoI am not sure yet, we will only have to pay for the printing though, not the postage. The posters are also sent out and being made for us. We had a big ad in the Oswegonian. I have met with Involvement committee and we are going to be doing some PR for the elections and putting things on WNYO, WTOP, the Oswegonian, sitting in the Union promoting it with fliers on the 13~ and 27~. The Oswegonian is going to have themed papers from now until the election. TossasWhat do you want to come from all this advertising? Director DrogoWe just want to increase awareness of SA on the campus. President SutherlandWe have been exempt from doing the referendum this year and we won't have to do it again for 3 years now. HershkowitzCould we update the website and post peoples contact information? Director NicholsCould you also put information about the committee chairs. Director DrogoYes I will get on and update the site. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston I have had a few meetings and I have some ideas for the bookstore. I am hopefully going to meet with Kevin about starting a disability oriented student group. This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Homework is backDirectors are not exempt. If you have done this one before, you still need to do it but come up with a different answer. You must identifj one disability and its disadvantages. You can e-mail me, leave me a voicemail, or come by my office hours to tell me what you come up with. These are due by Monday and then next Monday you will have to give me the affects that these disabilities have on higher education. I am still looking for someone interested in taking over my job when I graduate so please let me know if you have anyone that is interested. W. Senator Issues Forum MapesWe have senate dinner every week and I am disappointed to be there and see many other senators sitting with their friends and not us, you can sit with us and bring your friends! StrumI am going to be dropping one of my committees to join another one. MottThe off campus luncheon is going to be taking place next Wednesday from 11:301 :30 it is a free lunch so if you live off campus come and bring your friends. RobinsonI would just like to say to senator Mapes that we just really don't like her. Motion to close: Mapes, 2" Belser

VILI. Committee Reports Policv: We met on Thursday and went over the bi-law changes and the BYPIRG Referendum question. We will be meeting this Thursday at 7 in the library. Procedure: We went over the rights and responsibilities of at large senators so I will be emailing you about the senator at large position. Things like they have to go to a certain number of hall council meetings. We have the online journal and they can do postings in the Oswegonian, off campus and at large senators will be responsible for those. Our meeting next week will be Thursday at 8PM. Finance: We met last week and went over the bills that were brought to us. For the Oswegonian bill there are going to be several changes because we found out that they are unable to use their editor payroll for the computer upgrades. The Habitat for Humanity bill we agreed to without amendments. We feel that it is for a very good cause, they are giving up their spring break to work and are already paying $100 of their own money. The Meteorology bill we recommend it because we went back to them and found out some more information. The special orders bill for tonight we agree to with amendments. Our meeting will be Thursday at 9PM. Involvement: We are currently working on advertisements for the elections coming up. I (Senator Kinnear) would like to nominate senator Strum for Involvement committee, 2"d Robinson. Health & Safety: We will be meeting next Wednesday at 9: 15 in the SA office. Elections: We met last week to go over the petition process and we met with NYPIRG. We are meeting Wednesday at 8:30. CCRT: I have been in contact with Jen Hill and she is excited to do this, we are definitely playing softball and having a pizza party! The mayor was all for her coordinating it. M. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.3 1 Chinese Culture Club DinnerThey would like to ask for $500 to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This will take place at the Global Buffet and can accommodate about 45 people. I would like to amend the bill and cut the amount down to $250 from $500. The Global Buffet is making a real Chinese dinner so we felt that the people could pay about $10 each for their meal. 2"dBelser RobinsonIs this open to anyone? WardI am not sure, it is not specified. MottI think that they reserved a special room in the restaurant. HubertIf they are getting some SA money and they are selling tickets but don't sell enough, do they make up the difference that we didn't give them or do we? President SutherlandWe would be left with it. BelserSo we are left with the rest if they don't sell enough tickets? President SutherlandI don't think that they will have a problem selling out. MottIf we only authorize $250 then aren't they responsible for the rest if they don't sell out? President SutherlandYes you're right, I'm sorry I misunderstood, we would not be liable. HubertThe $250 that we are giving them is that covering the members or are they going to have to pay also? WardThey also have to pay for theirs. Vote on amendment: 15-01, amendment passes. Westfall: On line 21, I think that inconclusive should be inclusive. Vote on the bill: 141 1, Legislation passes. X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.26 Oswegonian Computer UpgradeAmendment: This bill was going to be partially paid for by the payroll of some editors but they are unable to do that so we have cut the bill down from two towers to one tower and software. The total is now $1737.90 from $1300. We will look into other alternatives for another tower. HubertSo the software that you are going to buy was going to be used for both of the new towers so couldn't they get software fiom another organization at school?

a MottThere are still liability issues. 2nd to amendment, Hubert Vote on amendment: 15-01, amendment passes a FarrellHow much is in account 6505? a Mott: I have $2008.1 1, that account is a fixed capital account. a TossasI am also on the e-board of another organization and I just wanted to ask if the Oswegonian really deserves these computers. My question is, how effectively are they going to use these tools.1 don't think that 6000 students really read the Oswegonian and I think that there should be added requirements before just giving them the money, a HershkowitzDo you mean that they should do fundraising because we can't force them to do it. Many organizations don't receive the amount of money that they need but they survive with what they get. This organization has a huge budget and we only give them a fraction of it, they do very well with what they have. a MottTheir budget is $4500 and that isn't even near what they need. You said that you want them to step up well that is exactly what they are trying to do byu getting computers. Maybe 6000 people don't read the Oswegonian, but most students have heard of this organization and know what they do compared to many others. TossisI may have worded what I said wrong. What I meant is that we could give them a small project when we give them the money so that there is a new perspective of SA organizations. Vote on bill: 14-0-2, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.27 Money for Habitat for HumanityThis is a bill that comes up every year and they are only a Tier 2 organization. We feel that it is a very worthy cause and that they deserve the whole amount. a FarrellHow much is in 6502? Mott$5169.66 WardI did Habitat for Humanity for 2 years and I always had to pay for all of my expenses. I support this bill. BelserThese students are going to work over spring break and they are already shelling out $100 of their own money. Vote on legislation: 13-0-3 legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.28 NYPIRG Referendum QuestionThis is part of our contract, we need to ask the students if they still want NYPIRG on this campus and want to pay $4 a semester for that. DrScharfenbergerYou should strike the 2"d Whereas on the bill, lines 6 and 7. Director SmithWe currently have a contract with them and they are budgeted, if we charge the $4 it will go over our budget. I think that we need to consider the $4 per student. BelserWe are speaking about the question itself, not about the amount that we pay. 2nd to amendment: Durgin Vote on amendment: 16-0-0, amendment passes. HubertSo if we pass this are we in violation of the contract? Director SmithWe would violate the trustees policy contract and we would go over the budget allocated. FarrellIf we don't ask the question then we are violating the contract with NYPIRG. HershkowitzThe referendum is non-binding so then it is up to NYPIRG. Dr. ScharfenbergerWhat you are proposing is that is how it is stated on the contract. MottPoint of InformationDoes it say in the contract that we have to say $4 per fee paying student? Dr. ScharfenbergerYes, it is in the contract. HubertWe can put anything we want in this if its not a legal contract and Dr. Scharfenberger says it should be as specific as possible. FarrellIf we keep it as is, are we in violation of the SUNY Board of Trustees policy? Dr ScharfenbergerJust try to make sure that you fulfill a commitment. HershkowitzAmend Line 2 put in "following advisory" 2nd to amendment: Robinson

Vote on the bill: 16-0-0 legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.29 Meteorology Club ConferenceThey are asking $900 to go on a conference March 18-20. I believe they are going to use money in their account to pay $35 for 12 members. That should come up to about $1400 total. SwenssonDo they do any fundraising? WardThey gave me no indication that they have. SwenssonThey are basically asking for the money that we didn't give them in the fall. Director SmithThey didn't do any fundraising. They have $948 left in their account from the last bill. TossisIt looks like they are trying to get us to pay for the whole event. Each person will be paying $35 it doesn't seem right. MottWhat did we give them money for last semester? Director SmithWhatever their budget request was, their account went up to $1 100 MottIt was my understanding that they are using $500 from their account for this conference. HubertLast semester they said that they wanted to improve their labs did they do that? WardCould I check my e-mail to be sure of the information? Vice President BeckYes you can go check it now. RobinsonDo they need this money now or can we re-refer it? WardI don't know when they need the money by for the conference. MottIn finance we voted to re-refer this bill so since there are still unanswered questions, I motion to re-refer this for a week to finance committee. 2"d Robinson.

Thank you for your time Gospel Choir, Sheri Wolbert, President ihank you for letting us speak. We ask you to approve our budget for review We perform at organization's dinners, in both the fall and spring. Free dinner open to all students Andrew, Treasurer: We have had some problems with new e-board members They want their ideas express, they all have conflicting opinions, we need to work as a team. We are not getting important things done, such as the Budget. We are seeking advise from our advisor. We need more communication among the members The reason that the budget is late is because the diversity of the members and their conflicting views. We would like to get this budget approved because we want to retain the director we have from Syracuse, he is nice enough to help us despite the little amount we pay him We would like to keep this competitive advantage over schools like SUNY Cortland who have more money for better directors Sheri: We have been able to grow due to the support SA has given us.

Vote to accept Gospel Choir's late budget by lpm, Wednesday February 16: 18-0-1, budget accepted Sheri: Thank you very much Men's Rugby, Steve, President: We would like to send two people to a Player and Coach Development Camp. Senator Mott wrote the bill. New York State Rugby requires one player who is certified at level 1 for coaching, we would like 2 people. The VP is one and the other is a young player who shows promise. He will be in Rochester the weekend that the training camp will be at RIT. o Hubert: Do all players agree on the people that were chosen to go? o President: Yes o Swift: Is certification binding? o President: Certification is for life, until level 2 certification, which is not required. We host the Greased Weasel tournament on 2 fields, designated for men's and women's rugby. The others have outdated goalposts, and one is down and one is in rough shape. We can work with the one in rough shape, the one that is down needs to be replaced. I was informed that we are not allowed to construct our own wooden uprights. The permanent structures cost around $2000 which is too much even if we had that money. I have decided to use PVC piping for goalposts and use steel ground sleeves with caps so they are not permanent and can be removed for any other organizations. Regardless, these will last at least 10 years and might as well be permanent. They are easily stored and cheaper, at $630. I am working on getting them stored in Lee Hall; otherwise I can leave them out where they have surplus construction equipment, but Lee hall is favorable. o Strum: When is greased weasel? o Pres: April 16 o Director Smith: How many teams will be there? o Pres: I have heard from 5 men's teams, we have a new team from a boy's academy outside of Watertown who will be attending. There is a former Oswego alumni from class of 83 who is coaching a women's team in Maryland who would like to attend, so 6 teams total. A decent turnout is expected. BSU, Raquel Crocker Good afternoon, I am the director of the archives of the BSU. Friday we had a date auction, raised 288 dollars for tsunami relief. This month is Black History month, this week Sister to Sister week, a guest speaker from a grant from the Women's center will be here to talk about diabetes. This Saturday we are holding an event with the Muslim Student Association. The speaker will talk about racism, it's very important to unite and do things together. February 26 is our annual Black History Dinner at 5:OOpm. VI. Guests of the Senate: Dr. Joseph Grant, Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management: I appreciate opportunity to speak with you, what I circulated are documents dealing with budget increase. Tomorrow at 3:30pm in 101 Lanigan, the SUNY Chancellor will be here to present the budget and answer questions. This is a great opportunity for Oswego students to attend and ask him questions. Tonight I will give an overview of the Chancellor's issues Budget clarities: 84.3 million for mandatory salary increases negotiated by State of New York. There are also utility increases, inflation increases, and computer support and equipment increases. There will be a $500 tuition increase for everyone at the university. This is an unwelcome change but the money comes from either from the students or the state.

PAGE 16

When people say, "Well we don't want a tuition increase", what you need to do is get money from the state, which is difficult. Welfare, roads and bridges, all these things give New York State a $6 billion Budget, with a $5 million surplus for this year, and for next year there is a $6 billion deficit, where will this $ come from? The real issue is, why do we need a tuition increase? New York State can't come up with the money for salaries and utilities, among other increases. Community college based aid is going up, but that is not an issue for this campus The budget restores $7.3 million in EOP, which is for financially disadvantaged students. This is a $16 million dollar program. The Governor's budget cuts half of it, and we want to get that back into the university. Funding the new Campus Center is like getting a mortgage for your house The Chancellor is proposing a guarantee program, when you come in as a new student in SUNY for 4 years you pay the same price for tuition. Similar to the Oswego guarantee program for room and board. Last year there was a $950 increase in tuition. The logic is that small incremental increases over time would be better, is there any guarantee that this will work? No, and this is something worth talking about. The State support. the partnership to accelerate completion time so that people will graduate on time Tuition assistance programthere are $168 million cuts in for this. Governor wants to cut it in half The new plan is to only give students half of what they should receive during the time they are in school, and give them the other half upon graduating. Finally, there is an academic scholars matching incentivewe have presidential and merit scholarships here, this proposal would help Oswego with that. Robinson: For the SUNY Tuition Guarantee Program, how does this work and what does it guarantee? Dr. Grant: If you come in at $4,500 for tuition, you pay that for 4 years and in a 9" semester you would have to pay more. Swift With incremental raises, this doesn't necessarily guarantee against a potentially large increase like we have seen in the past or for the coming year, correct? Dr. Grant: No, there is no guarantee. It is being negotiated that the state of New York would have no more cuts during that period of time. Until then, there is no guarantee. For the tuition for next year, it is being proposed that it will increase $500 unless they can come up with the $83.4 million. They want to give money to elementary and secondary education, roads and bridges, Medicare and Medicaid, so will there be enough left over for SUNY? We want to get as much state funding as possible, while maintaining quality. Audience member: Assuming we cannot get the $84 million, $500 extra will just come from incoming freshmen? Dr. Grant: The fall of '06 would have a fixed amount with increase. Same with '05, new students pay some increment above that. It has been running at 3 or 4 percent increase each year, only for incoming classes. Farrell: It seems like $84 million is only issue, are there any other options? Dr. Grant: One third of students get full TAP, and another third receive some amount of TAP. So it is a big deal. Only other sources are state revenues and tuition, so what we hope legislature would do is come up with $40 million instead of $80million; then the increase would only have to be half as much. Director Drogo: I am concerned about the fact that there are students lobbying now for their own cause, but there is no one to speak for high school students and incoming freshmen. Dr. Grant: The increase would only be at price index, only at 3 or 4 percent

PAGE 17

Raquel Crocker: With the proposed plan for TAP, what happens to the money if you don't graduate because of frnancial reasons? Dr. Grant: Iif you don't graduate, you would get half the money fiom the state and borrow the other half and then you would have that loan, or you could have the college pay it for you and we would have to come up with other half, and if you didn't graduate the college wouldn't get it back. So either you or the college wouldn't get the other half. Hubert: For the TAP, I understand it would help the budget this year, but a couple years down the road when they have to pay back what hasn't been paid wont that create the same problem? Dr. Grant: Everybody would be in that spot, so if we keep pushing it off, yes you would have to get $ back in 4 years, the new students will get money the deferred, and so on so the issue keeps getting deferred. It is a 4-year cycle of deferment. Audience member: If money is such a huge problem, have they looked into not spending money on new buildings, or fieezes in administrative salaries? Dr. Grant: citizens will spend a lot of money. Freezing salaries all together, we don't negotiate salaries locally, unions UUP negotiate salaries, we are committed to paying those salary increases. About $1.4 million a year makes up the increases, in recent years we were given no money and it was absorbed by the budget. This really doesn't make up a lot of our money, so it's not a huge concern. Hershkowitz: How much money are SUNY schools getting to increase programs and pay salaries and stuff, how much money are we getting for increasing programming? Dr. Grant: None, its all for other stuff. Also, some of the money gets sent out to other campuses, leaving hardly any left over. Ward: If this budget passes, would it increase Oswego's operating budget? Dr. Grant: That $84 million represents the operating cost of all SUNY campuses, and ours is a fraction of that. Thank you I appreciate time, I urge you to go listen to the chancellor tomorrow MI. Executive Report Director Drogo presented for President Sutherland Kevin's grandma passed away so he is in Syracuse, we would like to send him flowers or something on behalf of the senate and E-board. Kevin did budget council last weekend, Kristin Ian and Nancy can be asked questions about that. Kevin wants to go around to committees to talk about moving money fiom stagnant organizations and moving to it an executive account instead of having it just sit there, he will be going to Finance Committee and some others, and he wants a bill transferring this money by next week. Vice PresidentKristin Beck We are missing clerk tonight, thank you to Erica and Kelly. Budget council was this last weekend, and this coming weekend, it is going well so far. We have seen about 20 organizations. President Sutherland will not be there Saturday, so I will step up as President and Senator Hershkowitz will be Vice President. Introduced three new Senators, McTiernan fiom Cayuga, Swift Off Campus, and Chadaev fiom Seneca Director of FinanceNancy Smith This weekend was first session of BC, went well, still have 18 organizations to go on Saturday and Sunday. There were 5 who did not turn in their budgets last Thursday as I mentioned in the ernail. Two organizations were here earlier and were approved by Senate, but there are 3 others that should have been here and have not responded, I ask the Senate to vote down acceptance of late budgets for COPE, Outing Club, and Del Sarte

PAGE 18

Dr. ScharfenbergerWhy are we doing this differently? Vice President BeckThere was nothing written in the Financial Policy on how we should handle this situation, and Director Smith recommended this procedure. Hershkowitz-T will be allocated $0, because they should have been here. Budget Council came up with a way to try and get the organizations the money, what I think will happen with this procedural vote, is that it will be non binding, there will be a 0 in the book for their accounts. Dr. ScharfenbergerI assume that if there is no budget there will be a 0. NancyIf they have no money they will have to come to senate, should they be dropped to tier 2? Yes, but that is not in the Financial Policy. Hershkowitz-Either they will receive no money or be budgeted based on last year's request. It is up to Budget Council, they can allocate whatever they want Vice President BeckIf their budgets are not accepted tonight, they go to $O? Director SmithYes Vice President BeckIf they are accepted, they can go to Budget Council to work something out. Director SmithUltimately Senate can say what we feel they deserve; we could continue funding, or give them 0, and have them come ask for money every time they need it. Vice President BeckSo then before Budget Council fmishes, if the budgets are accepted Budget Council will give them the money they feel is necessary. Director NicholsHow did COPE and Del Sarte become part of the Tier 3 process without submitting a budget? Director SmithThey turned in a charter. MottWe don't really need a vote, Budget Council will do what they feel is best, and it will go on to finance committee. Director LyonThey get bumped down to Tier 2 for the Fall, and then they can submit a budget and fundraise and get more money in the spring. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston Hi guys. A couple things ... Director Drogo, President Sutherland, and I have worked hard on putting together a forum for students and faculty interested in disability issues on campus. To determine whether or not there is a group getting started, on March 31d at 6pm in the Formal Lounge there will be a meeting. Andy's signs will be up everywhere. There are two possible dates for a wheelchair basketball game. This is usually a really good time. Still looking for someone who is interested in taking over my job for the upcoming year With regard to the homework, I haven't heard from the majority of you, including about 10 senators and none of directors. New senators, I give out homework, and Vice President Beck will be handing out assignment that I gave to the senators last week. Give me an idea sometime this week and be ready for a presentation next week. o StrumWhat do you want from our research? o Director PrestonHow the disability you have chosen would impact academic life and succeeding in a college setting. o ChadaevDo we need to prepare an oral presentation? o DanIf you write it down that's great, a presentation is not required. Keep an eye out for the posters! Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols I was asked to inform everyone about a benefit for the tsunami relief, and I have decided on a bowling party in early April time. I put some numbers together, thanks to Liz, showing van rentals by student organizations for the past 3 semesters. This information should be presented by Kevin next week.

There is a brochure that should be printed, which will go out in admissions packets to inform fieshman about SA early, same info that is in the current bi-fold, but now it is on much nicer looking on cardstock. These will be the size of a poster and should cost $2 each. We also have business cards and letterhead, Heather has been working on this with me. o HershkowitzYou have been doing a great job; you have done so much work and the senate appreciates it, and I appreciate it. Keep up the good work. This is just amazing, if we continue on this path SA will be more visible, so thank you Director DrogoI have been doing all of this without a budget. Could we consider a compensation for Heather McBride for drafting our new logo? o HershkowitzI think we should update our presentation board for the information fairs with the new logos, can you update that? o Director DrogoYes, I'll work on that. Director DrogoTake a flier VIII. Senator Issues Forum MottRegarding the Senate Report in The Oswegonian, I talked to them and they decided if they couldn't get someone to come here they could put a summary of each meeting's bills in each issue.

HershkowitzMotion to amend to add on line 15 "To be controlled by MSA for their speaker. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes HubertHave you done any fundraising? President of Social Justice ClubYes, we are paying for his travel up here and they have been helped out a little by some groups in NYC. Some students and groups who will be attending, they have done as much as they could to raise $ Huberta bunch of people are coming up from NYC, and we are paying for them to see him, can they pay for something? President of SJCThey helped with the cost of transportation. HubertWhy does this speaker cost so much? President of SJCBecause he is a prominent, popular speaker HubertIf that is so, why were we unable to find much information on him, and why weren't we given a resume? President of SJCHe does not go by the name given to him, he uses name "Abu Yousef' commonly. BelserIn regards to his name, I know in the Islamic faith, similar to Judaism, there will be a given name, I have a judaic name that I do not go by, it doesn't mean a different person, it's not a big deal. RobinsonI really do want to see this, but it is problem for me to vote yes for that amount of money. Senator Mott tried to do a lot of research and found nothing, so it's hard for me to vote yes. It's unfortunate they aren't here, I think there are a lot of questions right now. ChadevI concur with Senator Robinson, they will say valuable things at this event and I look forward to going. I hope it will be very very interesting. The money is worth spending on this.

PAGE 21

LamphereI want to make sure I understand, the $800 is for the speaker only, and you want that money from senate. The transportation was paid by people from NYC? President of SJCNo, MSA paid for transportation. LamphereSo what did the city people pay for? President of SJCthey advertised and spread the word down in the city. Most of the funding, aside form the price of speaker, came form MSA. So basically I can see where you got confused, what I tried to say is there is a lot of outside support for this person to come here to speak because they want to fbrther educate the state where we have very little connection with the Muslim/Arab/anti-racial community. LamphereSo it wasn't outside financial support, just moral support President of SJCRight, they spread the word. BacanskasHow is he traveling here? President of SJCI don't know. BacanskasMy biggest problem is that it is not that expensive to stay here overnight and come fiom NYC. It seems like the majority of who you are expecting seems to be fiom NYC. I have a problem giving $800 to outside people that are coming for fiee and not contributing to our funds. StrumMy question is that if there are other clubs involved, are they helping w/ funding? Why is it all on MSA? President of SJCWell I know that the Social Justice Club just helped the MSA last week, and the BSU signed on to help as well. MottSJC was not part of this bill, I approached them because we wanted this to be a joint organizational bill so it could come fiom that account, the never had any intention to financially support this. HubertHow many people are you expecting to attend? President of SJCI don't know, a guess is 100. HershkowitzThe turnout should be high. HubertCould we ask a dollar donation to defer some of the cost? President of SJCI'm not sure, fiom the bills that I have seen it seems like a lot of money is going to a lot of organizations that don't offer to the college community what groups like BSU or SJC or JSU or MSA would offer; these are groups that are really interested in educating the campus. HubertMany organizations are created to educate the campus, rugby and other clubs are different President of SJCEducation is important, other ideas and beliefs are really really important BelserI think this is going to be a real positive event if this happens. Getting 10 people out to an event is an amazing thing; to say that we're going to bring 100 or 150 people out to this event, I think that's a really positive thing. I hope everyone will consider voting for this bill. I want to thank Senator Mott for her time and research on this bill. ChadaevAre those people able to financially able to provide some assistance fiom NYC? President of SJCPeople that I know of are coming up as individuals, we're not having like a whole group come together. I really can't answer in depth whether or not they can provide any financial support.

PAGE 22

XI. ChadaevThe best course of action is to have those who are not from Oswego pay 1 or 2 dollars HershkowitzWe hold events all the time where members of the community and surrounding areas attend. I don't forsee huge amounts of people from NYC, its only the better that they can come be a part of this. I know that SJC is cashed out and they started charging ad space in their Get Free Times, so I don't think they have the $ to help subsidize this event. Neither does the bsu, I think we should vote for it, we are nitpicking this too much, this is just the way it's going to be and I'm really in favor of it, so I request the chair to take a vote. SwennsonI want to point out to the Senate that the bill hasn't gone to hall councils, we don't know anything about the speaker, it's a lot of money, the MSA president is not here to speak, and these are all important questions. Vote on the bill: 12-5-2, Legislation passes. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.29 Meteorology Club Conference WardSorry for not bringing breakdown last time. This is what I received from their President in regards to how the money would be split up for registration, night lodging, breakfast, banquet, gas, and number of students attending, including amount that each student would have to pay to offset those costs. In finance committee, everyone came to the consensus that the bill amount should be amended to $750. They were budgeted $500 for conferences, which leaves $448. They need a new TV because their old one is very archaic, and $300 is going towards shirts as fundraising. The remainder of their money should go to trip to Tug Hill to study lake effect snow patterns. The fundraising that they are going to do with the t-shirts will go towards a trip that they will plan later in the semester. MottMotion to amend to decrease the $900 to $750. Finance committee did felt that 900 was too much to ask, we did give them a breakdown for the remaining cash in their budget. We had concern as to how efficiently they were using that money, we thought it was fair for them to use more of their present budget towards the trip. HershkowitzI yield my time to the Meteorology club. Meteorology PR directorThere are 16 people going Wardwhy wasn't I notified? The Meteorology club President just sent me an email outlining where the money for the fundraising would go, this information should have been passed on Vice President of Meteorology clubI registered us, this was last minute, I'm sorry, students who thought they had plans decided to go, we decided to present it here. HershkowitzAre you going to request more money? VP-No FarrellYou upped the amount to 16, but are still charging $50 a person, $400 is from your budget. The amount of $50 is based on assuming you get the $900 from senate? VPYes HubertPoint of information for Met club$1,865 was budgeted to you, and you wanted $1,950, where will the extra $95 go? VP13 people were estimated to go on the trip, because we set the deadline for last Friday. The President knew of more people that were interested, so we left a $95 lee way. FarrellAre you willing to charge $75 for your members to go?

PAGE 23

VP16 people are already registered, and they are already paying $50 of their own money for meals and any extra costs. If we increase this to $75 some of them will not be able to go. I believe last year we got $500 to $600 in additional money for this conference when we had 8 people attend. This year we are doubling our participation and it would be unfortunate if SA could not even double this amount. HubertIt is our job to give money to clubs to do these kinds of things, but it is also our job to make sure we have money. The accounts are dwindling, and asking your club members to pay a little more would allow us to have other organizations and clubs to have their speakers and go do the things that they need to do. I'm sure you understand Meteorology PR DirectorRegarding the guest speaker which was discussed earlier, one of the senators made reference to how Oswego really appreciates clubs that are doing things fiom an educational perspective, and these students who are going on this trip are going to be getting an education for that weekend. You'd be hard pressed to find a student that wants to learn on their spring break and you should reward them by not putting such economic stress on them. RobinsonI think that every club on campus in their own is equally the same, and every club benefits students one way or another. Hershkowitz I request the chair take a vote Bacanskassecond Vote on amendment: 17-1 -0, amendment passes. Director SmithThe number of students going is 15 including a professor there is 16. SA doesn't pay for expenses of personal use, souvenirs, or faculty costs. The finance department allocates money for food. $3 per person and maybe 2 meals. VPThe Piez glass cases are outdated, and our professors want us to fix that as a club with material from this conference. SwensonWhy haven't you been fundraising all along? VPWe haven't talked about it. We didn't know about the shirts or anything because we just got in contact with the t-shirt company. HubertWe like to support organizations to get their education wherever it may be found. I think this is a great event, good for networking, necessary for club, I agree with the amendment but I also agree with the bill. Vote on the bill: 15-2-2 2.) SLE.40.30 Mens Rugby Coaching and Player Development Camp Certification MottThe President talked about this earlier, the bill is straight forward, the state requires it, and we are pretty sure that the certification is for lifetime, since they are giving it to 2 members the senate may not have to deal with it for a few years. Vote on the bill: 18-0-1 3 .) SLE.40.33 SAPB Weekend Movie Series MottThere is no money coming out of senate accounts for this bill, it is just transferring their money Vote on the bill: 18-0-1 XII.

Motion to approve the minutesBelser, 2nd Hershkowitz. Public Comment Men' Club Hockey We have a new website with our schedule on it. This semeter we are 9-5-1 and we still have more games on the schedule. Last season we only played 3 games and this year we are going to end up with about 21-25. So far for all of our away games we have been paying out of our pocket for transportation to away games. We had received money from you earlier in the year to pay for 11 away games but we ended up having a lot more than that. Our last 2 games of the season are going to be in Buffalo and we are trying to save people some money because it is a long trip and an overnight. Just recently we drove 1200 miles in one weekend and spent $120 on gas; we have spent a lot already and we are just looking for a little help. WestfallHow many more away games do you have on the schedule now? Club Hockey Rep.We have 4 right now. WestfallSo last semester we gave you $1200 and you have added these games since then? Club Hockey Rep.Yes, these are all regular season games, we aren't going to have playoffs. HershkowitzDo you think that we could just give you more gas money instead of a charter bus? Yeah that might work its just that we want to relieve the people that have been our drivers to our games. HershkowitzDid you look into using school bus instead of a charter bus? Club Hockey Rep.Yes and we also looked into using the school vans but when I spoke with Kevin Sutherland he said that we wouldn't be able to do it. President SutherlandYou would be able to do it but you would need a faculty member on the trip and qualified people to drive the vans. Club Hockey Rep.This is something that we can look into and we will do that. I wish we had known about it sooner. We will be willing use the money for school vans if you could write that into the bill somehow. NY PIRG Last week we had our student action meeting and it went really well. Our different action groups will be working on different projects this semester and ill just let you know what those are going to be.

PAGE 27

Higher Education and Election Day committees will meet on Tuesday at 6:30. Environmental Protection will be Wednesdays at 7 and they will be working on Earth Day events. Social Security will meet Thursdays at 5 and will be working on getting experts on the social security issue and doing a casino day out of it. Hungry and Homeless will meet Thursdays at 6 and they will be volunteering at soup kitchens here and in Rochester at the House of Mercy and doing another food drive. The conservation advocacy and the labor rights will be doing a research project this semester. If you ever have any questions you can go to 13 Hewitt Union and someone there should be able to help you. Men's Rugby We came last week and described our bill and I just wanted to come back and see if anyone had any questions for me. For our tournament we have more teams and 1 more field added. SIFE There is a bill going in this week and I just wanted to let you know a little about it. April 7 and 8 we are going to New York City for a conference and 43 people will be attending. We are asking for reimbursement for the hotel for 3 out of the 8 rooms we are getting. OTEA We just got back from the TECCA programs in Virginia Beach and we did very well. We were able to place in 3 of the 5 events. In teaching we came in 3d, in Elementary Education we came in 1" and in manufacturing we got 2"*. Because of our outcome we are looking to go to the national competition. We were supposed to have our president here with a Powerpoint so that is all that we have for now and maybe we can come back up when she gets here. VI. Guests of the Senate Gospel Choir Our concert this semester is going to be April 2nd. W. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland I just want to thank all of you for the card and the support last week. In response to Chancellor King's presentation, I just want to let you know how I feel about the issue. The tuition is expected to go up and I don't think that it has to. In the year of F03-Sp04, the state contributed $12 million, which was 27%. That percentage is going to keep going down if there is a $500 increase in tuition. In Kings proposal, he says tuition is going to become differential meaning that if you go to a larger state school like UB or Binghamton, you are going to pay more than at a school like Oswego. In conclusion, I am for the HEPI idea but not the $500 tuition increase. Vice President, Kristin Beck Tomorrow there is an event for Raise Your Voice Month. Auxiliary Services has a scholarship available and the application is available online. I just explain what acclimation means to you guys because a lot of people came to me after senate and voiced their concern with the acclimation. It means that the whole group approves of it and if you don't, then don't be afraid to say so. Don't be afraid of what people are going to thiik because that isn't what this is about, it's work, not social. WestfallSomething approved by acclimation means that the WHOLE senate approves of it and supports it so if you don't support it, please say something. I am going to take a vote to see if you still want this to be passed by acclimation. If you vote yes, you want to discuss it further, if you vote no, you are ok with it. (Vote shows majority of 'no') Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Budget council went pretty well the past 2 weekends. We are pretty much done with it we just have a few more executive board things to do.

PAGE 28

McTiernanHow much do we have in the senate account? Director SmithI don't know right now, I will send out e-mails letting everyone know. Director of Disability AffairsDan Preston This week I got-a lot of interesting reports, does anyone want to talk about theirs? HershkowitzI researched a disability that affects the language part of the brain and these people can't write sentences or read them and comprehend them. They also can't speak them and when they try it comes out as a few random words. This usually happens fiom a traumatic injury not birth. WardI researched Cerebral Palsy, which is a muscle disorder. It can cause muscle spastics and uncontrollable movements and it can cause speech impediments. Many people who suffer from this have coordination problems and can't do hands on projects. There are 4 different types of the disease and I researched some of them. Physical therapy and surgery can be beneficial to treat the disease. Some people also suffer from clubfoot and epilepsy. So what did we learn about how these affect people in school? StrumI researched what schools do for people with disabilities. WestfallI researched a hearing disability and I learned that talking louder to the people doesn't make a difference, to them it is a clarity problem, not volume. 2 weeks fiom now you will get an assignment that lasts until April. The disability forum is going to be March 3* at 6PM. We are working on whetheror not to get a club going for people with disabilities. I met with a few people about taking over my position when I am gone and if you know anyone who is interested you can let them know that I require a resume and a 200-250 word paper describing what you think you could do for this position. Can anyone guess what is the most difficult part of my whole day? Hershkowitzgetting through the snow? Hubertgetting dressed? Director PrestonPutting on my shoes and tying them. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols The next direct assembly is going to be this Thursday and the presentations will be by Mike Pastella and President Sutherland. VIII.' Senator Issues Forum HershkowitzI just want to thank Kristin for coming here tonight being that she is sick. I would like to yield the rest of my time to OTEA and then to Arts Alive. OTEAThank you for being patient with us tonight. In our program here at Oswego there are about 350-400 people and we took 16 people to the TECHA competition. There were different categories to compete in such as teaching a lesson, transportation, manufacturing, and elementary education. We basically went this year so that we could report back for years to come and let them know what to expect in upcoming years. We were very proud that we placed in the manufacturing competition because it is one of the hardest ones and we were there with the minimum amount of tools to bring. This conference was paid by clearing out our whole account so if we go to Nationals in Missouri it would be paid out of pocket. Arts AliveWe are currently planning a 3 day trip to Washington D.C. and we are asking for money for the transportation which is $2000. We will be going to different art museums. It is open to any student that wants to go and it will take place on April 1'2'3. RobinsonI would just like to recommend that we start referring to everyone in here as we are supposed to. For example, use President Sutherland and Vice President Beck when referring to them. We have gotten very lax about that lately. Farrell1 will have to leave senate early so I am going to talk about the SLE.40.36 bill which is WTOP funds transfer. They are just transferring the money from one account to another so that they can improve the quality of what they put out. MapMotion to close, 2nd Strum M. Committee Reports Policy: We finalized the bylaw changes and you will get a copy of those tonight. We are going to be meeting Thursday at 7:30 to review the legislation.

RobinsonI disagree with this totally, I think that they deserve the money, they have spent a lot already. HubertIf this was deferred for another week how would that affect the Hockey team, we could re-refer it. They should be able to get enough money to cover the hotel and the gas. Director SmithBy the time that the bill gets passed, it would be at least 2 weeks so we wouldn't have time to re-refer it. RobinsonThey have used so much of their money, I don't think that we should pass this amendment. HershkowitzThis $400 is for travel costs and written after we discussed them using the van for transportation. Vote on amendment: 4-7-1, amendment fails HershkowitzI understand that you don't want this amendment, but $1800 is a lot of money to go to Buffilo. HubertI also think that $1800 is too much money but I think that $400 is too little.

PAGE 30

Club Hockey RepI don't think that $400 is too unfair but we could use $500 just to be safe for gas and $240 for the hotel. KinnearYou have other trips to go on right? So you would need money for them also. I think that $500 or $600 would be Edir in gas and then $240 for the hotel. RobinsonMotion to amendLine 15 amount of $240 to $740 total.

This Thursday there is going to be a speak out at 12:15 in the Formal lounge and Ian Farrell will be speaking. We invited WTOP, WNYO, and the newspapers to come to the event. The Hunger and Homeless group is going to be doing an Easter food drive on March 26' outside of P&C. With our last food drive we had a huge success and got enough food to benefit families until April. The consumer project is underway and they are looking into the return exchange. It involves a California company and if you return merchandise to one of their stores your information is kept in a database and if you return too frequently you aren't allowed to return anymore. We are trying to find out the criteria for denying people the right to return. We would like you guys to help out and call 1-800-652-233 1 to find out your report and then contact NYPIRG with your results SIFE Today we have a bill coming up for $750 to go to NYC for a conference. SIFE is a global organization that is active in 40 countries, involves 1600 colleges and 15,000 students. SIFE gives away $1,000,000 in prize money and scholarships each year. We are the most active business organization on campus and we are made up of people from all majors not just business majors. We are working on 17 new projects this year. The campus department is working on things such as in debt, Welcome to the Real World, and Gateway to Business. The Community Department is working on things such as the Stock market at elementary schools, Harborfest, and BOCES. The Business Department is working with places such as Toucans, Water St. and Kathmandu. Our most recent event was Welcome to the Real World and we had about 274 people sign in so I'm sure there were more that just walked around and didn't sign in. This was a tool to help juniors and seniors prepare for graduation and after. We had many speakers from the campus and the city. For this event we spent $20 in copies and that was our only expense. As for fundraising, we did 2 events last semester and are doing 4 this semester. Coming up we are doing a dodgeball tournament and last semester it raised us $300.

PAGE 33

We get a lot of donations from places. Ow website was a donation because it costs to have a website. All together, there are about 10 meetings a week for this organization. For this trip, we need 8 hotel rooms in all and we are asking the senate to pay for 3 of them. In NYC we will be competing against other schools on a 30 minute presentation. This event is a conference/jobfair/competition. In the past we have done very well and placed either 1' or 2"d. We are going to be paying for gas, tolls, and food along the trip. We raised about $460 so far this year and actually increased our account from what was originally given to us. We only have 2 faculty members going on the trip. The reason that we decided to stay at this hotel was because it was close and if we stayed farther away, we would have to pay taxi fares and for all those people it would end up being more expensive. We are going to Nationals in Kansas City so we need to save the money to attend that. We got $2300 from senate last year and we know we can't get that much this year. If we win regionals we get a $1500 prize so that would go towards ow trip to nationals. Also, the business department is going to help us fund ow trip to nationals. Cheerleading We have a bill going in for an upcoming competition. We have come a long way in the past few years. The team used to be below a High School level and now we have improved to a competitive college level. We now have about half of the team that can tumble for competition. We hold practice 3-4 times a week and we pay out of our pocket to take gymnastic classes and use the room there. There is a new level of commitment on our team that we didn't have before, everyone is really excited to compete this year. We went to Utica recently to support the men's basketball team. For our hotel it is $70 per team member and we have 21 team members. We have $100 discount because we are staying in the hotel where the competition is being held. We need 8 rooms at about $100 per room. BacanskasHow many teams are in the competition? Cheer Rep. It is a national level and there are all different ages and levels there so it is a pretty big competition. RobinsonHow much is the hotel per night? Cheer Rep. It is going to be $90-$100. LamphereHow many people are staying in each room? Cheer Rep. There are going to be either 4 or 5 people in a room and the coaches each get their own room and the guys get a separate room. LamphereWhat have you done for fundraising? Cheer Rep. We are working on setting up an Oswego discount card. MottYou had a $2000 budget this year, what was that used for? Cheer Rep. We have to pay ow coaches and we bought signs and new men's uniforms. MapesHow big of a problem would it be to have yow coaches stay in the same room? Or have 5 people stay in one room? Cheer Rep. We can talk to our coaches and look into putting 5 people in a room. Arts Alive This year we have about 35-50 members and for ow trip we have 48 students fiom all different majors attending. There are 7 faculty who are mostly fiom the art department because they know all of the good places to see. The trip is going to be from Friday April 1' until Sunday April 3*. We are going to be staying at the Best Western and the fust day we are meeting with Roberto Bocci, a professor of art at Georgetown. We are going to be going to the Corcoran Gallery, National Gallery, Hirshorn Museum, Museum of Women in the Arts, etc. The charter bus that we are going to be taking costs $2,150 and that is a definite cost. The hotel is going to be $3,036 at $89 per night for 17 rooms (4 people per room).

PAGE 34

Each person right now is paying $62. Lsat year our trip was cheaper because we didn't go as far and some people are upset that the price went up. We have some people that won't be going if the price of the trip goes up anymore. Our bill is asking for the $2 150 for the bus. We are willing to use the $700 that is in our account towards the bus as well. VI. Committee Reports Policy: We finalized the changes to the Bylaws last week and we are going to be meeting Thursday at 7. Procedure: We went over the amendments to committee structure. Finance: For the SEE bill, they came and talked to us and we recommend the bill as is. For Arts Alive, we recommend but with amendments. We didn't get a chance to discuss the Pre Law bill but we approve of it because I know we need the extra money in 6502. Involvement: We have basically just been doing advertising for the elections. Health & Safetv: We will be meeting next Wednesday at 9: 15 in the SA office. Elections: We met last week to discuss the Johnson debates. The voting is going to be taking place March 8" and 9' on MyOswego. There will be e-mail reminders sent out to every student. The debates went well last week however, Sean Green has withdrawn fiom the election so Scott Robinson is running unopposed. There are more debates tonight at 8:30 and WTOP, WNYO and the Oswegonian will be there. The last debate is going to be on the 6" in the basement of Seneca. We will be meeting next Wednesday. FarrellI nominate Senator Chadev to policy committee, 2nd Bacanskas. Nomination accepted. CCRT: I have a meeting this week. VII. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.46 Pre-law Club to Senate Account Fund Transfer President Sutherland: I moved this to Special Orders because I have not yet signed the resolution put in to me but I am going to be doing that soon. The pre-law club feels that their money can be better spent by the Senate so they are passing it over to you and I know that you need the money soon because of all of the large bills coming up. Vote on bill: 18-0-1, Legislation passes VIII. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.39 Amendments to the Student Association Constitutional Bylaws FarrellSince the strike through bylaws just came through today I would like to send it back to policy for 1 ~eek,2~ Robinson. 2.) SLE.40.40 SIFE Hotel Money for Competition DurginThey do a really good job at budgeting the money that we give them and raising money of their own that I think they deserve this money and I hope that you agree. Vote: 17-0-2, Legislation passes 3.) SLE.40.41 Amendment to SLE.38.51: Student Association Committee Structure HershkowitzThis issue came up last year around the Referendum time so we came up with a bill and passed a flawed version of the procedure. There are a few problems with the bill such as if you miss more than one meeting you could be removed fiom a chair position. We gave the chair member in question an extra week to rebuttal. We also changed the removal of the chair person to be done by a vote in senate instead of just the committee itself. I request debate on this because I want to know what you guys think we should change with it. HubertIn line 34, I think there should be more restriction on that. (Pertaining to the committee chair being at the meeting when they are being put up for removal). HershkowitzIf you want to put an amendment in that is fine with me. WestfallI concur with Senator Hubert, I would feel more comfortable if it said "should" instead of "must". MottI think that the chair should get a letter saying that they can appear at Senate to defend themselves and if they don't then that is considered their attempt at rebuttal. RobinsonI concur with Senator Mott. HershkowitzO We can rerefer it to procedure and add amendments. 2"d Mott.

PAGE 35

4.) SLE.40.42 Arts Alive Trip to Washington D.C. HershkowitzThey do an annual trip every year and they are paying the cost of the hotel and food out of pocket, I think that we should try and help them out if we are able to do so. MottMotion to amendWe are going to use the $700 in their account towards the cost of the bus and they told us that they could go up to $65 a person and we are going to do that which changes the total amount to $12 10. 2"d Robinson. HershkowitzThis is the absolute lowest amount they can go for their trip or people will drop out. HubertThe trip is educational but asking them to pay more isn't a very big deal. Maybe we could change it to $10 more instead of $5. RobinsonThat really is a lot to ask for a college student. HubertThe meteorology club is paying more for their trip and they are going to represent the college. HershkowitzThey are going some place educational and I understand the concerns but it all comes down to if they can or can't go on this trip. HubertWe have about $6000 coming up in legislation and we have to judge where to make cuts. KiearWe just cut the cost they were asking for in half. LamphereI agree with Senator Hubert that they could pay $75 per person. They should be a little more open to the amount. FarrellHow many people are going on this trip? Arts AliveAbout 48 people and they really can't afford to go if the price goes above $65. We have to fill the bus and if we don't we will have to pay for the people that don't go. SwenssonWe have competition bills and recreation bills, this is a recreation trip and I think that $ 10 more is reasonable. ChadaevDo you need to have 7 faculty members go on the trip? Arts AliveWe need to fill 55 seats on the bus and with the faculty we fill that. ChadaevMaybe the faculty should pay more for their trip than the students do. Arts AliveWe can talk to them about it but they probably won't be happy having to pay more. LamphereA trip to D.C. for $75 is a really good deal. If you went on a trip for the weekend there on your own it would be a lot more expensive. SwenssonYou could open it up to other students to help fill the seats. Arts AliveIt is already open to anyone but no one has expressed interest in going. SwenssonI had no idea before you came here tonight that the trip was even taking place, you could advertise it better. MapesIf they pay $5 more per person, it would knock off $200 fiom the price. DurginI concur with Senator Hubert and Senator Swensson. KinnearIt doesn't seem worth it to change the price if half of the people are going to drop out. RobinsonI look at any trip as a vacation so we shouldn't be classifying these trips. HershkowitzI concur with Senator Robinson. We are fighting over $200 and it makes a difference in whether or not they take this trip we should just vote and give them the money. I request the chair to take a vote on the amendment. HubertObjection. I think that if the trip is so important then $5 more isn't a big deal. In finance we voted to bring the total down more. President SutherlandI yield my time to Director DrogoI don't feel that my SA money should be going to pay for the faculty as well. BelserWe are heckling over a small amount of money we should get past this and vote on the amendment. RobinsonMotion to call to question. 2nd Hershkowitz. Vice President BeckIf you iote yes, then you want to vote on the amendment now. Vote on call to question: 16-2-1, passes

PAGE 36

Vote on amendment: 15-2-2, amendment passes MottWhen we are talking about the trips being a vacation or a competition, I agree that they are all like vacations. The difference to us is that in a competition they are representing the school and possibly getting prizes. I really want them to go on this trip but at the same time I would choose competitions over this. They haven't done a lot of fundraising this year. KinnearWe are in danger of showing favoritism to certain organizations. If going to D.C. is going to help them with their career then it means the same thing as a conference does. McTiernanWe aren't showing favoritism but we are restrained with money. I would like them to go but we might not have the money. WardWe are in constraint but the criteria for the bills is the same. Arts AliveWe do represent Oswego and we will be learning a lot from this trip. We just represent in a different way. We go to the SUNY Art Exhibition and we are doing well and getting known for our work. This trip will really help fuel our fire. HershkowitzWe can't say who benefits the campus more. Some organizations are out there and attempting to get jobs from conferences. We need to be careful on denying them just because we don't think they represent the campus in the same way other organizations do. We should fund this trip because it is a different kind of representation for our college. HubertIt is our job to put the criteria on how we fund organizations. We need to make sure that we can fund other organizations that are coming. I would like to amend in the following ways. Line 10, 13, and 15 change the amount to $1000.2"* Lamphere. HershkowitzThe criteria for funding doesn't say that we should fund more for competitions. I think that $1000 for this trip is too little. RobinsonI concur with Senator Hershkowitz. Senator Hubert brings up a good point but I think that art is important and we don't appreciate it as much as we should. If it will help them by going to museums then we should give them the money. MapesI Request the chair to take a vote. HubertIf we pass this then we will have about $4300 left in our account and we have $6000 coming up in bills. BacanskasI would like to call to question. 2d Mapes Vote on call to question: 171 1, passes Vote on amendment: 51 1-2, amendment fails. DurginThey are relying on a fundraiser at the very end of the year. They should have planned better for this trip. MapesMotion to vote. 2d Kinnear Vote on bill: 10-6-3, legislation passes IX.

I urge you to go to the SA debates tonight they are at 8:30 in the Union. You have to be fiscally careful with your budget and how you choose to distribute your money. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck We have a new senator from Hart, Maria Barra. I have Dan Preston's report because he was unable to make it. If you know anyone that is interested in filling his position, a 200-250 word essay and a resume are due by March 8". Director or FinanceNancy Smith I agree that you need to be using your money wisely from now until the end of the year. If you didn't get the pre-law money you would have been out of money now.

So far this year there have been 18 legislations passed. I am working on getting fliers done to recruit a new director of finance for next year. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols The movie project is going well, within an hour of being out they were all in circulation. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo Today I printed out about 100 fliers for the elections and I did it late because I found out late. I put them up in non-legal places just so that people would see them as they passed through. I just want to say that for SIFE we have 8 people who are just in charge of fundraising for the year so I encourage other organizations to have even 1 person be in charge of it. I will probably be an off campus senator starting next month when my term is over so I will be able to give you guys some more of my view points. MapesPlease hand out these elections fliers to people that you see and hang them in your dorms. We want a big turnout. I can make more fliers if you need more. Also, I updated the website so the debate dates are on there as well. XI. Senator Issues ForumHubertIn the SIFE bill it said the number of people going was 38 but you said that 42 were going does that make a difference? HershkowitzNo it doesn't matter. Director DrogoIf anyone wants to play dodgeball feel free to get a senate team or your own team started. HershkowitzOn the topic of the elections, I just want to say that last year we had twice as many voters as in years past. Online is so much easier for people so remind people in your hall and make reminders in class. There is an e-mail to every student so everyone should be informed. MapesMake sure you do what you can to get people to vote, make announcements in your classes please! FarrellI encourage everyone to attend the debates tonight and Sunday night.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve the minutesHershkowitz, 2nd Robinson IV. Approval of Agenda Motiong to approve the agendaHubert, 2* Belser V. Public Comment Women's Center This month is HERstory month and there have been different events going on for that. Our most successful event was the Vagina Monologues. We have extra fliers for you for HERstory month so feel free to take them on your way out. Tomorrow is "The Female Orgasm" and we have a man and a woman coming to speak from Albany. They are going to talk about things that don't normally get talked about. Cheerleading We have our bill up tonight to be voted on. We have been working really hard this year and we hope that this bill passes so that we can do our job of representing the school. This competition is a big deal to us and we have been working towards it for a few years now. RobinsonAre you counting on all of this money to be able to go? CheerWe are having a fundraiser so we could potentially still go with only some money. NYPIRG We currently have the referendum going on and it is a big deal to us so we are trying hard to get it passed. We have had about 150 hours of volunteer hours. Students can vote for us to be elected or can be on our boards. We deal with many student issues and that is why people appreciate what we do. This Thursday we are going to be making the basket for the easter food drive at 7:OO. Yesterday 350 students participated in Lobby day. They sat with legislators and we got some TV coverage. OTEA We are trying to get to the national competition but we didn't know about it ahead of time so we couldn't plan our money for it. We are going to the state competition in Buffalo but we are already paying for that out of pocket. We did a fundraiser but we didn't make much profit off of it. RobinsonCould you still go if you didn't get all of the money? OTEAWe will try to get the money from elsewhere. VI. Guests of the Senate Gospel Choir Our concert this semester is going to be April 2nd. VII. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland Tonight finance committee is meeting to go over the budget. I think there was confusion last week when I asked Senator Hershkowitz about his mug. I was saying it because I was happy to see that an SA organization had already used the new SA logo.

PAGE 40

I am looking forward to a week off and hope everyone enjoys their break. SA Vice President Kristin Beck There are 2 new off campus senators, they are Anthoy Armelino and Zachary Roberts. Last week the Arts Alive bill debate started going towards discussion that shouldn't have been brought up. Try and stay away from distinguishing differences between organizations' trips. Director of FinanceNancy Smith Finance is meeting tonight and going over the budget council recommendations. I sent out an e-mail to pick up 3 year worksheets. March 23d is the tier 3 recommendation deadline. April 5' is budget appeals at senate. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston On March 3d we had a meeting to look into starting a group on campus and we only had one person attend. I think that it was due to bad timing. I am still looking into the band for May Day and basketball team. Applications and resumes are due tonight for my position. For the next homework: As for the first homework you were to pick a disability and determine what academic problems might arise. Now you have to take the research fhther and come up with a specific problem and address the problem and its solutions. Write this in a resolution format that way it will give you experience with writing a resolution. This is due March 29'. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo Director Nichols, President Sutherland and I have been working on a Tsunami relief bowling event. We are going to have different organizations get teams and compete against each other. If we fill the bowling alley we get more money so we hope to do that. I have been doing some promoting for the elections and I am kind of disappointed in the involvement committee. I printed out thousands of fliers, updated the website, etc. I felt like I should take a part in helping, but not do all of it. I had things air on WTOP also. I hope that for future elections, the involvement committee is more involved. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols March 29" is the bowl-a-thon and it is going to be $15 per person. It will be taking place from 9:3012 and there will be door prizes. I would really like to fill the alley so that we can raise more money. Fliers will be made available to you so you can distribute them. RobinsonIs there any additional money? NicholsNo CrockerIs it $15 for everything? NicholsYes VIII. Senator Issues Forum MottFor future elections maybe you could make the link bigger on myoswego because I had a problem finding it when I got onto the site. MapesIt was made as large as it could go but I didn't realize that it was going to be that small. RobinsonLast year I think that it was in red and they changed that this year. RobinsonSome of my constituents are talking about the garbage cans that are between Tyler and Mahar and they say that garbage is everywhere. This needs to be taken care of. Motion to close: Robinson, 2d Strum IX. Committee Reports Policv: We met on Thursday and we went over Dr. Scharfenbergers suggestions for the bylaw changes. We will be meeting this Thursday at 7 in the library caf6. Procedure: We discussed the bylaw changes and we added things to the SA committee structure bill. We are not meeting this week. I have an amendment to the senators rights and responsibilities. Finance: We recommend all of the bills but we also have amendments for all of them. We are meeting this week after senate and we are going to have our usual meeting Wednesday at 9. The week we get back from spring break will probably be a longer meeting so be prepared for that.

PAGE 41

Involvement: Thanks for helping out with the elections. We won't be meeting this week but next meeting will be the Wednesday after spring break at 9. Health and Safety: We are looking at fire evacuation plans and security escorts. Elections: Tuesdays debate went well but there was only 1 person at Sundays debate. In regards to the constitution changes in the election, people can e-mail me and I can send them the changes if they are interested in what they are, they were not made available on the site. We are going to meet tomorrow at 7 to go over the results. As of 4 today we had 84 1 voters. CCRT: Jen Hill is actually President Stanley daughter and she wants to come to a senate meeting this year and she is all for playing softball. Lots of people in the city try to exclude the students because if they are further in town we don't affect them as much and we want to change that. I would also really like it if someone followed up this position next year. Nominations for committees: Mott nominates Armelino for Involvement Committee, 2d Durgin Hershkowitz nominates Roberts for Procedure Committee, 2d Mapes Farrell nominates Barra for Policy Committee, 2d Belser X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.39 Amendments to the Student Association Constitutional Bylaws. -Refer to Bylaw changes packet. Vote on legislation: 17-0-1 legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.41 Amendment to SLE.38.51: Student Association CommitteeMotion to amend in the following waysHershkowitzWe changed the whole 2d part of the removal procedure. 2d Hubert. RobinsonI think that the questions have been answered with this amendment. MottIf the person is initially at the meeting do they still get a week? HershkowitzI think that its implied that they don't. MottThey don't need to have more than a week but I think that they should have some time. HershkowitzIf they are there they can give their rebuttle then and if it comes down to this then they probably don't have much of a debate. Vote on amendment: 18-0-0 amendment passes. HershkowitzCurrently the procedure for recall is missing 1 meeting and we knew that had to be changed so basically we are putting that in the form of a bill. Vote on legislation: 18-0-0 legislation passes. 3 .) SLE.40.43 Cheerleading Association Conference: HershkowitzI am personally for this bill, I think that they should get a reasonable amount. Motion to amendMottChange the total amount to $500, we struck hotel and each person will now pay $62.2"* Hubert. HershkowitzIs it feasible for you to go if you only get this amount? CheerWe were really looking for the registration fee, we didn't tell the team that that was a required fee for this year. HershkowitzI think that we could increase this amount for them. CheerWe have been working for 2 years to go to this competition. RobertsHow much are you expecting to get from fundraising? CheerWe aren't sure how much we are going to make. MottI understand that cutting a bill this much is rough but we only have $6000 for the rest of the semester and I feel that if they have been planning this for 2 years they could have planned the money better. HubertWe are doing this now so that we don't have to do it later, we have to make cuts somewhere. RobinsonSome of my constituents agree that they should have more money saved up for this. BelserI agree with the fact that we are asking them to pay this amount. I don't think that it is too extreme to ask them to pay $60-65. WardI agree that $65 per personis feasible. Vote on amendment: 15-3-0 amendment passes. Vote on legislation: 14-0-4 legislation passes

4.) SLE.40.44 OTEA National Conference: OTEAThis national conference is coming out of the regional conference, we didn't expect to be going. We don't want to send our whole team only enough to participate in the events. We are trying to get money from other sources but so far we are stuck. Motion to amendMottChange the total amount to $500 using $1000 from their budget. That makes it $150 per person for a 4 day trip to Kansas City. 2"d Kinnear. OTEAWe are weary of taking $1000 from our account because we had plans to buy equipment to take with us on this trip. We also don't want to ask 6 people to pay $150 but we will do our best to figure it out. FarrellHow much are you willing to pay per person? OTEAWe are paying out of pocket for our state competition so I'm not really sure. HubertThey weren't expecting this and either we way, I want them to go and I hope that they can get the money but I think we are being fair. MottIf they are unable to go at least we can plan better for next year. Their department told them to come to us first and then they would see what they could do. Kinnear$500 gives them the chance to go, we need to worry about our budget. OTEAThe department doesn't have any money to give us and either does the school of education. RobertsWhy are we punishing them for their success? How much could you pay for your trip? OTEAThe registration is $35. FarrellWhat have you done for fundraising or looking to do? OTEAWe are looking to do t-shirts and we have had other ideas but nothing is quick enough for this trip. HubertIt is a privilege to go to a conference. They said that they are there just to gain knowledge so the best people don't have to go. Vote on amendment: 9-7-2, amendment passes. WardWe should just pass the bill and give them the chance of going. RobinsonI really want you to get more money but if the bill was for more, it may not pass. Vote on legislation: 18-0-0 legislation passes. 5.) SLE.40.45 African Student Organization: WardAS0 benefits heritage week, this involves African rituals. I admire that they have grown as a club. Motion to amendHershkowitz1 amendment says that they need $1350 instead of $1500 and the other says that all revenues will go back to SA. 2"d Ward. KinnearIt comes out of a joint account I think that we should pass this. SwenssonHow much are the tickets? MottThey are somewhere from $1 0-1 3 and the 25 people that are helping out are paying $5, they should get about $625. FarrellAre they expecting a large turnout for this event? WardThere should be students from other schools attending. BelserIn Binghamton it was successfbl and I think it should be here too. WardAS0 has good contacts so there should be a good turnout. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes Vote on legislation: 17-0-1, legislation passes. XI. New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.47 Great Lake ReviewRefer to finance for 1 week. XII.

Senator Issues Forum Farrell: Thank you to Kevin for bringing the voting booth to campus, however; there was a lot of conhion with Mackin residents and where they should be voting. I will be filing a complaint to the county board of elections so that this doesn't happen again. Dugandzic: I heard that there was supposed to be transportation to voting booths off campus, but there wasn't any. Dr.Scharfenberger: That could have been something carried over from last year, but this year they were not providing transportation. Robinson: I think that it is a good idea to file a complaint to the board of elections and also, see if there is a way to post directions to off campus voting sites because there were a lot of people who didn't know where they were supposed to vote. They also should look into getting another booth, Hershkowitz: When I was at the polls at 9AM, they already knew that they could have used another booth. McCabe: My concern was that there was still a really long line at 8:30 and people have to be there by 9, will they be turned away if they aren't up to that point in line by 9? Vice President Beck: No, as long as you are in line by 9, then you are able to vote. Dugandzic: If they do switch to more than one booth in the future, I think that they should let students know ahead of time because if they think that the line is going to be as long, they may not even come out to vote. Mott: Renee Larnphere is a possible new off campus senator. Dr. Scharfenberger: SA is paying for the booth to be on campus and they didn't anticipate the numbers that they got today. For the next election there will probably not be as big of a turnout because it won't be the presidential. Hubert: WTOP had its kickoff and there was a show on that heavily supported Kerry, people complained to me about it, are they allowed to do that? McCabe: Yes they are allowed to do it as long as in the beginning of the show they state that the opinions in the show do not necessarily pertain to those of the people on the show. Crocker: There was a support Bush flier in the Union on a bulletin board and it wasn't stamped approved to be there. Mott: ~ansors take any unstarnped ones down at night if they come across them.

Events are planned for black history month The Hewitt Union movie theatre fills up just about every week. The concert this semester is next weekend and we decided to do a rap show in there because usually we lose money on rap shows so we are hying to see what happens when we mix. 700 tickets have sold so far and 2500 is sell out. Every ticket sold goes along with a free year's subscription to Rolling Stone magazine. The concert committee consists of about 30 members and promotions are going out on local radio stations and elsewhere. Proxy TompkinsAre the 700 tickets to mostly on or off-campus students? SAPB representativeIt is pretty much an even mix of the two Senator CrockerWhat will the next concert be? SAPB repThat depends on how much money is made on this concert. May Day is already in the works for next semester. NYPIRG This weekend is a conference at New Paltz for surrounding colleges and their NYPIRG group. We have 10 members attending. Next weekend we are making Thanksgiving baskets On November 23d we are coming out with the results of our toy survey. Habitat for Humanity This year we are taking a spring break trip to Baltimore and doing renovations to houses. The deadline for applications is November 12'. There will be a Hunger Banquet this Thursday, November 1 lth at 6PM in the Forum Restaurant. It is an event that is set up to raise people's awareness of the reality of homelessness. If you can make it we would love to have you there. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland I wasn't in my office today because I am sick and was home trying to get better. Mike Gewirtzman is part of "Our show is better than your show" and I had the honor of doing the ribbon cutting last week where we made a bet on blackjack. If he won he would be SA President for a day and if I won he would take me to global buffet. He beat me in best out of 5 so he will be your SA president for a day.

I attended student assembly this past weekend and Kristin and I sat in meetings almost all weekend. We talked about getting more collaboration between colleges especially between community colleges. If you want more information on the weekend, come see me in my office hours. Thursday is the Open House and we need someone to sit at the SA booth from 10-1 1 is there anyone able to do that?Senator Hershkowit. is able to and will do it. This week I don't have the legislation that I wanted to submit because when I was writing it up I was using an old copy of the by-laws. In regards to the financial policy, Nancy and I are working together on it. I was not able to make it last week because I had to help the on campus voting and we ended up having 946 votes in the machine and 200 affidavits. College Hour task force met last Friday. College Hour is a programming hour when there are no classes at this time. Faculty assembly didn't like the time that we picked to have it, but they liked the idea of it. Vice President Beck: They were also concerned with having to change around the class starting times. Hubert: What are the benefits to this? President Sutherland: Commuters and professors would stay on campus instead of just leaving for home after their class. We want a time when the majority of students are on campus. Westfall: I will send out an explanation of college hour on the list-serve. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck Please sign up for miss-a-meal table slot in the dining hall. You only have to sit there for a half hour. Student assembly this weekend went well they elected a new vice president and treasurer. They had a musician play on Saturday and we are looking to have him come to the campus to perform. Senator Benjamin from Funnelle has resigned. Assistant Director of FinanceKelly Lyon All SA organizations are having November audit. Treasurers of the clubs need to meet with Nancy and it is highly recommended that Tier 3 organizations attend this or it may bump them down for next year. Point of Information: What does account 6501 entail? Dr. ScharfenbergerWe would need to sit down and talk about it, it is too in-depth. 8 MetcalfeHow much money is in account 6502 right now? MottRight now we have $8212.66 Director of Public RelationsAndy Drogo Dan Tascarella and I have been working on an idea for organizations to be able to use our computer lab in the SA office. A lot of groups want new computers and we thought that this would save us some money if we can get it to work. They could get access to the room possibly from the building manager, and a lot of nights there are late meetings in the office. We will have to buy their software but that would be cheaper than buying a bunch of computers. President SutherlandWe could get a list of all of the Presidents of clubs and give it to the building manager to let only them in. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator MetcalfeLast Wednesday I submitted a bill and it didn't go through, I was just wondering why? Vice President BeckThere was too many questions about the bill so it didn't go into the agenda. MetcalfeWhat happened was that the old treasurer thought that they got more money in the spring semester so that they could pay the coach but in reality they were only allotted the money in the fall and the coach hadn't been paid when the new treasurer took over. The new treasurer thought he had been paid in the fall but he hadn't.

PAGE 8

HershkowitzI'm wondering if we can even pay him for what he owed him from last year. MottCan we even do what the bill was asking? MetcalfeLast year Dessima gave permission to the new treasurer to take out what was left in the account to pay the coach which was only about $150. Director LyonsIt is a different fiscal year so I don't know if we can do it. Treasurer of Club: The coach is looking for money from last year that we still owe him which is about $600. We have already paid him for his services this year. HershkowitzI don't think you are allowed to do reimbursements from last year. Treasurer of ClubThe coach is in a financial position that requires the money. CrockerCould we say that we owe him for this year and since he has been paid for this year, say he has been paid for last year and make it into a bill that says he needs to be paid for this year's service? Director LyonIt depends on their budget lines and we would have to look into the details because you can't have reimbursement in a fiscal year. MottThis is why we didn't bring the bill here this week, there were too many unanswered questions about it. DugandzicHow do you define reimbursement? Could we get a statement from the coach saying that the price is raised for this year enough to cancel what we owe? HershkowitzIt depends on the structure of the bill and the contract. Dr.ScharfenbergerWait for Nancy to answer some of these questions. If you didn't allocate it in last semester's budget, you cannot get reimbursed for it. HershkowitzWere you Tier 2 or Tier 3 last year? Treasurer of ClubI believe Tier 3 HubertCan we access 6501 at all? President SutherlandThat is strictly an emergency fund only. Vice President BeckWe have been able to shift funds in the past if we knew we were set with the accounts. Kelly Lyons6502 is for you to give out to organizations. In your mind 650 1 should be CANNOT access. Senator CrockerThe Black Student Union fashion show is December 4'h at 7PM and tickets are $7. The Gospel Choir is also having their concert that night at 6PM. Senator RobinsonSenator Durgin, Director Drogo, and I attended workshops at student assembly and we run our meetings much more efficiently than other schools. Some of them only had one senator for every 1000 students. Some schools don't use Robert's Rules and some don't even know what they are. We went to a meeting on how to run a meeting and basically they showed us how to make an agenda. When we compared other constitutions we found out that ours us put together very well. An acapella group called the Earthtones was there performing you should check out the website. Motion to close: Crocker, 2"d Hubert MI. Committee Reports Policy: Met last week and we wrote things up about senator at large issue. Next week we will look at President Sutherland's changes. We need another member and I nominate Senator Lamphere, 2nd Crocker. Motion to close nominationsDugandzic, 2"d Proxy Tompkins Procedure: Looked over other schools constitutions and we will write proposals for senator at large issue. Finance: This Thursday's meeting will be at 9, but think about other times that you could potentially attend meetings. We discussed accounts 6501 and 6502, we will continue to look at them but we will look at it knowing that $6000 is all we have left for the year. On the bills for this week; we do not recommend the printer for JSU because they have other options. We do recommend the rugby bill. We recommend the social justice club bill with amendments. We recommend women's ice hockey bill with an amendment. We do not recommend the Alpha Epsilon Rho Convention bill. Health and Safety: Meeting this week at 9: 15 on Wednesday in the Library Caf6.

Elections: We finalized a timeline for this year and we will be meeting this Thursday at 8:30PM. M. General Orders 1 .) SLWO. 1 1 Jewish Student Union Computer Hubert: I am currently looking for ideas for computer use. I have talked to people from campus life about possibly moving an IMac into their ofice. President SutherlandThe network that they will be on allows them to print in the SA office as well. HubertThey may need software as well. I recommend that we refer to finance for another week. MottDon't recommend them to finance, their bill says nothing about software. Motion to vote: Dugandzic, 2nd Swensson 1-1 1-5, Legislation fails 2.) SLE.20.13 Men's Rugby Account Transfer President SutherlandRugby got bumped down to Tier 2 this year and at the beginning of the year they were having events and senate wasn't in session yet so I allowed them to use money from my executive account and we both signed a contract saying he would reimburse me for the full amount. HershkowitzI have read the contract, do you think that you violated the policy because Men's Rugby signed the contract? You would have to sign the contract for them and for you and also it was signed September 31d before budget council met. President SutherlandI can do what I feel with my executive accounts. HershkowitzMotion to amend. Strike lines 7-10. 2"d Crocker. DugandzicWhat are you trying to protect by amending the bill in this way? HershkowitzI don't think that the contract was binding and I don't want President Sutherland to get in trouble. President SutherlandIt was just him and I making an agreement to make sure I would get the money back. ~wenssonthe money will go back in whether or not the amendment is in there. Vote on amendment14-0-3, Amendment passes. Hubert: motion to vote on bill, 2"6 Hershkowitz 15-0-2, Legislation Passes. 3.) SLE.40.14 Social Justice Club Newsletter MottMotion to amend, Strike lines 14 and 15 so they have more freedom with their money and likes 11 and 17 change $855 to $400. They do very little fundraising so we felt that $400 was a fair amount. 2"d Farrell SwenssonCan they just come back next semester and ask for more money? MottYes they can, we will probably be resistant to give it to them though. Hubert1 took the bill to my hall council and they still disagree with it even after the change to $400. They think that this money could be better used elsewhere. FarrellThey sometimes print questionable material so do you think that we run a risk of violating policy? HershkowitzThey have no suits against them and they have not violated the policy yet so we can't make that a factor. MetcalfeDo we spend more money in the fall or the spring? HershkowitzThat is hard to predict, we usually spend all of the money we are allotted though. MetcalfeHow many organizations dropped status this year? Vice President BeckI think 8 MetcalfeWe are still using the same amount of money as last year even though we had organizations drop status. Vice President BeckYes, but we also added more Tier 3 organizations. MetcalfeDid WTOP use this year's money or last year's for their new equipment? HershkowitzI believe that last year we reworked their account. MetcalfeWTOP isn't doing any programming or news this year, can we ask them for money back?

Vote on amendment 15-0-1, Amendment passes 0 DugandzicWhat does their newsletter consist of? $45 per letter to print seems like a lot. MottIt could easily get up to $45. HubertThey print on colored booklet paper which is expensive, they could easily put articles in the Oswegonian. 0 MottThe $45 was taken out of the bill in the amendment. Vote on bill: 3-8-6, Legislation fails 4.)

SLE.40.16 Alpha Epsilon Rho Regional Convention FarrellThis bill has been sent to fail; they will not be able to attend the convention even if they receive the full amount. President SutherlandThey are an honor society so we can't fund them anyways. Director LyonsThey are Tier 1 and they don't fundraise at all, we haven't heard from them all year.

Public Comment Men's Rugby We currently owe $600 to the executive account We have a $3000 CD that we are looking into accessing in order to pay off expenses. Scrum machine is still working so we will not need to replace ours this year. Women's Club Hockey We really need the money to perform as a team and look like a team. Last week we lost our game and this weekend we play Skidmore and SU NYF'IRG Last week I attended the hunger banquet, in which a maximum of 60 tickets was sold and there ended up being about 75 people attending, 25 were onlookers to the event. It was a very positive, informative experience. We attended a conference last weekend at New Paltz, 9 students attended and they got to go to workshops on various topics. This Saturday at Human Concerns we are going to be making Thanksgiving baskets also we are going to be at P&C asking people to buy an item to donate for needy families. Social Justice Club We have a bill tonight for $350 that will be for the whole year for the newsletter. We hope to get more newsletters out sooner rather than later. Some members have paid out of their pocket for past fliers. We know that the budget is stretched but we believe that our newsletter should be put out because our SA fee allows us to get peoples opinions out openly. HubertHave you done any fundraising? SJCNo, it is hard for us to do, but we are looking into it. HubertWhat about placing ads in the newsletter? McCabeYou should be putting in a disclaimer to the newsletters stating that the opinions stated are not the opinions of SA or other people writing in the newsletter. SJCWe had an anti-Bush segment but that doesn't mean that everyone in SJC is against Bush. RobinsonCould you get some copies for senate so we can see what the newsletter entails? Proxy TompkinsWhere and when do you distribute the newsletter? SJCWe distribute around campus and in the union on Fridays, We are looking to decrease the numbers of fliers that are printed to save us some money. FarrellDo you give out a lot of fliers in the Hewitt Union? SJCProbably about 200 copies are given out in the union. FarrellHow much has been spent out of pocket from your members? SJCAbout $80 an issue.

PAGE 13

DurginHave you thought about saving money by printing on white paper? SJCWe will do it if need be, but then the fliers won't be as appealing. DugandzicHow many members do you currently have? SJCWe have about 30 members but a lot of our writers are not members. DugandzicWhat is the mission of the Social Justice Club? SJCWe want to educate the campus and the community about issues that are left out of main stream media. HubertHow is reducing the number that you print going to be effective towards your mission? SJCIt is a last resort, we would only do it if we really needed to save the money. HubertHave you thought about printing in the Oswegonian? SJCThe Oswegonian may not be able to publish all of the articles that we print. We know that the articles will be published in our newsletter. DugandzicHave you worked with any other clubs? SJCWe have worked with JSU, NYPIRG, Women's Center, and Rainbow Alliance. Proxy TompkinsHave you made yourselves a web page to distribute the articles online? SJCWe have done that already. WardCould you work together with NYPIRG financially to do the newsletter? SJCWe don't have identical views with them and we would like to but it may not be realistic. They also have financial concerns of their own. VI.

Mr. DeSantisThere is a webcam on top of Hart that monitors the construction site. The concrete foundations will be done this year and the end of next summer it will be a building. Oswegonian representativeAre you digging up anything hazardous in the process? Mr. DeSantisWe did an environmental test before we began to make sure that it was safe. We did hit asbestos insulation buried next to steam lines. Proxy TompkinsIs there going to be any sort of cross campus road? Mr. DeSantisIt isn't in the plan there will be interior walkways though. DugandzicAre there any places to see prospective looks of the building? Mr. DeSantisThere are pictures placed on the fences around the work area. MottUB has tunnels between almost all of their buildings, I think that we need it more than Buffalo does. CrockerI live in Cayuga and the walkway between Seneca and Cayuga closes at night, why is that? President SutherlandThat is a safety measure. Director NicholsWhat are the plans for the fountain? Mr. DeSantisThe fountain will be gone, all in front of Swetman is being redesigned. President SutherlandAre we going to redirect the entrance to the college? Mr. DeSantisNo, but there will be 3 main entrances. McCabeThe fountain was an expensive gift to the college, have you talked to alumni representatives? Mr. DeSantisYes they have been contacted, but I don't know what they decided. Director NicholsAre they going to have clubs sponsor trees that are put up by the new union? Mr. DeSantisNo, but it is possible. Oswegonian Rep.Is there a name for the new Campus Center? Mr. DeSantisNot yet decided, but it is in the works. Director LyonsSo everything is on schedule and not over budget? Mr. DeSantisSo far yes, we spend a lot of time making sure that it is on schedule. Director LyonsWhat will we see going on in the winter? Mr. DeSantisYou will see inside renovations. W. Executive Reports SA President: Kevin Sutherland Mike Gewirtzman gives closing speech (was SA President for the day). I had a meeting with Chuch Wheaks about the SAVAC garage and he is willing to front the money, we will have to make a contract. I went to a campus safety meeting and if you are interested in attending future meetings let me know. Last week I was upset to see how many people abstained from the Social Justice Club bill. Vice President, Kristin Beck Miss-A-Meal sign ups are going well we have about 500 people signed up in Littlepage. SAPB concert is this Saturday Abstentions from last week were also a disappointment to me, It is like you are giving up your right to vote. If you still have questions about the bill when it comes up to vote, object to the vote and get the information you need. Special orders bill has to be decided on tonight so think about how your constituents would vote. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith We have been working on guidelines for the financial policy and we will be meeting Thursday to determine criteria on funding for SA organizations. I sent out an e-mail to all the senators "Why should we fund organizations" please bring it to your hall councils. I am meeting with Auxiliary Services to discuss them taking over accounting books.

VIU. IX. X. I was informed that the Oswegonian had a digital camera stolen from their ofice and I need a police report to give to the insurance company. President SutherlandWas it reported to the police? 0 Director SmithI don't have the report so I don't know. The camera wasn't locked up in a safe place. I will see what I can do about unlocked ofices in the Union. 0 Oswegonian RepWe don't have keys for the ofice staff so we started locking it at night. We did file a report and will have it to you by the end of this week. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Direct Assembly is November 18~ and Dr. Hughes and Mike Pastella will be doing a leadership presentation. As of this afternoon, there were 7 applications for organization of the month. Senator Issues Forum 0 MottI do not have a problem with the Social Justice Club bill itself but I was wondering why it is under special orders? I thought that it was meant for emergencies. I think that it should go under regular procedures. HershkowitzI talked to the Vice President of the club and they wanted to move it along before winter break. We only have 2 or 3 more meetings before break. The bill itself was brought up last week and went through hall councils then, It was put on special orders because of a time issue. HubertI agree that the bill should not be in special orders. I thought that they said the money wasn't even going to cover all of the issues. I remember Senator Hershkowitz saying that you were trying to bypass hall council. HershkowitzI did say that but I don't think that it needed to go to hall councils again because almost the same exact bill already went through them. KinnearPeople have a right to say what they want to say and they deserve the money as much as any other club does, their paper serves a different purpose. HubertWe represent our constituents and I think that the bill should have been brought to them. Motion to closeMcCabe, 2" Mapes Committee Reports Polic~: Finalized changes to constitution and this week we will go over it to make sure we are happy with what we decided. We meet this Thursday at 7 in library cafd. Procedure: Helped wite the changes with senator Farrell, it is on its way to legislation, we meet this Thursday at 8. Finance: We meet every Thursday at 9. The women's ice hockey bill really had no problems and we recommend it with amendments. We talked about boxing bill and we are still working on it. Involvement: Talked about the referendum issue during elections for next semester. Meet the Thursday after break. Health and Safetv: We're looking to get a 31~ centro bus to run for the winter. Elections: We went over the elections timeline and I will send out an e-mial about the meeting. CCRTI called them and they will get back to me. Auxiliary Services Board of DirectorsThere are properties that are unimportant and unused. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.19 Social Justice: "Get Free Times" HershkowitzThey were very distraught to know that the bill failed last week. They don't do things that they can make money on. We know how our hall councils feel, that is why it is on special orders. I think it is important to fbnd them because there isn't a product like this that is readily available to the campus. It keeps our campus diverse. Please vote for it, I think it is important. RobinsonI recommend that they think about printing on white paper. Also, if they write about something that you don't agree with, write to them and tell them. HubertThs issue is that ow constituents don't want to pay SA money to them because there are other ways for them to print their info. McCabeThis organization wants assistance in printing something, even if we don't like what it says, they are still going to print their opinions. They are asking a reasonable amount.

XI. XIL xm. XIV.' KinnearThere are a lot of clubs that our constituents don't know about, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't help or support them. FarrellThey should advertise that it is available online. Even if we don't agree with it some people do. They should have the ability to hand it out. HubertThey should be able to print, but if another organization wants a newsletter do we have to give them the money too? The Oswegonian has plenty of room for their articles. DugandzicMotion to vote McCabeObjection, The Oswegonian opinion section isn't meant for full organizations, they don't have the space to print so many editorials. WardThe Oswegonian and SIC have their own purposes and it would be a conflict of interest if they were to join. FarrellWe aren't obligated to give money to other clubs. Proxy TompkinsThe Oswegonian requires AP format and this paper requires no format and some of their writers submit poems. MottAnyone can submit articles to the Oswegonian but they do the best they can to have journalism majors write the articles. Motion to voteFarrell, 2"d McCabe ObjectionHubert HubertMotion to refer to finance for 1 week, 2nd Mott HershkowitzObjection, I have tried to explain the clubs feelings, we know how our hall councils will vote, the outcome won't be different this week. KinnearIf it goes to finance we are just going to keep debating it. HubertThe fact that there is so much debating shows that we should go to finance and our councils.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve minutes: Crocker, 2"6 Mapes IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda: Crocker, 2"' Hershkowitz V. Public Comment SAPB Breakdown on the ticket numbers for concert: There were 2094 ticket holders before the show. 163 bought tickets the day of the show. We made $28,943 on the concert and we need to make $35,000 to meet our income line. Cinavision is also very close to their income line. MapesCan we request bands for next semester? Mike GewirtzmanYes I am always open for suggestions but I won't be working on it until January. Crew Club We had a great season this year. At the end of the season we still have about 70 members which is phenomenal. We took about 50 members to each Regatta. We have a bill for tonight and it is to pay the coach $500 for the year. Every Friday night we have a pasta dinner at the Newman Center and everyone is welcome to come. Men's Rugby Our total fall expenses are $2870 and our total spring expenses are $5805 This year we are working with a much smaller budget because we were dropped to a Tier 2 due to errors made by the past administration. We have coaching expenses of $1000 per year and we aren't going to be able to pay him with ow budget. In the spring we host the greased weasel tournament and we usually have about 12-15 teams participate. They are charged about $200 to play in the tournament so we will get some money from that. We are willing to sacrifice getting a new scrum machine and using the money in our CD to pay for some of our expenses. The machine we have now can be repaired and if we keep repairing it, it could last another 3-4 years. VI. Guest of the Senate Gospel ChoirConcert this Saturday in Hewitt Union VII. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland Thanks to Ian Farrell for helping to write the legislation, it will be coming to the senate next week because any constitutional changes have to be made in the fall semester. Andy Drogo has been working on a new SA logo and we have come up with one that has been agreed upon. We are also working on a brochure of SA to let people know what we do and how we work.

PAGE 19

According to the student association fee policy, we have to have a referendum every 2 years now, but even though we did one last year, they want us to start fresh this year, so it may be a possibility. The college hour taskforce has come up with two different times that they are going to be proposing to faculty assembly. I think they have come up with a time that will most benefit students. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck I have not received totals on miss-a-meal yet but if I do I will bring them next week. Senator Strum is here from Fumelle who will be here for next semester. The new Hart Hall Senator will be starting soon as well. Director of FinanceNancy Smith No report WestfallCould we get an update on the totals in account 6502? Director SmithAs of right now I have $9,997.66 MottI have about $7800 if we add in bills that have not been passed. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Student Organization of the month for November was JSU, however they didn't show up to Direct Assembly to receive their award so we will be implementing that as new criteria for the award, you must be present to receive it. Video Project videos were purchased Direct Assembly is this Thursday, December 2"d and Nancy Smith will be presenting. VIII. Senator Issues Forum RobinsonI want to resign fiom elections committee because next semester I will be running for SA Vice President FarrellI also want to resign from elections committee because next semester I will be running for SA President. HubertWhy is the ski and snowboard bill on special orders? MetcalfeWe need a bus by Wednesday, but I will talk about it when I present the bill. CrockerThe BSU fashion show is this Saturday in Waterman theatre at 7PM. Motion to close: Robinson, 2nd Mapes IX. Committee Reports Policy: We finalized changes on the constitution and next week we will have a packet for the Senators to show them the changes made. Our meeting is Thursday at 7. Procedure: We went over the responsibilities of Senator at large, next week we will look at the impeachment law. Finance: Meeting Thursday at 9. Health & SafetyMeeting Wednesday at 9: 1 5 Elections: If interested, please join the committee. We now need 2 more people. Motion to Nominate Senator StrumDugandzic, 2"d McCabe, Strum accepts nomination; now a member of elections committee. X. Special Orders 1. SLE.40.24 Ski and Snowboard: Metcalfe: This bill is on special orders tonight because PO'S are due soon. Our President needs to know by Wednesday if we need the bus. We go to Tremblant every year in Quebec and this year we are hoping for 60 people. We used to be able to take 15 passenger vans but they require 25 year old drivers and we don't have two people to do it. The bus is all inclusive for us. We allow people's families to go (not on the bus) but they get the group rate for the ski ticket. Every year we go to Killington, Tremblant, and some local hills. This year the Tremblant trip is $350 for the room and the lift ticket for the week, this is all out of pocket. Each person is willing to pay an extra $1 5-$20 in order to have the luxury of the bus. It is $3000 to get the bus for the week and our budget right now is $1200 and if we charge people $15 a piece that will get us another $600 so we still need another $1200. DugandzicWhere does the bus leave fiom?

PAGE 20

rn MetcalfeIt will leave from Oswego and we get permission for people to park on campus. HubertHave you done any fundraising? rn MetcalfeWe are looking to do fundraising next semester but it would only defer the costs out of our pocket; If we go over 40 people on this trip, can we return the unused money? rn Vice President BeckYes, you can say in the bill that the money will be returned if unused. MetcalfeMotion to amend: add line 17 to say any unused money will be returned to account 6502,2"* Ward. 16-0-1, Amendment Passes HubertI spoke to my hall council and they felt that we should give you some money but not the full amount. We agreed to bring it down to $1000. rn McCabeIf they have a rough number of people who are going, it would be inconvenient to have them change the amount that people put in for transportation. Dugandzic1 think that it is up to the club if they want to put in more money. rn CrockerThe money is going to go back to 6502 if it is unused anyway so we should give them the full amount. rn WardIf we raise it by $5 it may change the number of people willing to go. HershkowitzMotion to amend: Line 14 from $1200 to $800. rn MetcalfeThe money that we are paying doesn't include ow food for this week either. McCabeThis club pays for all of the activities it does out of pocket, we really shouldn't hassle them over $5 a person. rn MottI don't have a problem giving them money it just seems wrong to give them the full amount of their budget. HubertSenator Metcalfe said that charging the group an extra 5 or 10 dollars wouldn't be a problem. Dr. ScharfenbergerIf we reduce the amount of the bill, we should have a reasonable explanation of doing so, and right now we don't. Also, the budget is a lump sum of money and we are not able to tell them how to spend it so if they want to use it all up on this, that is fine. MottAround budget time, they decided to give them $1200 it seems strange to give them the whole amount again. Director SmithHow long have you known about the trip and when are deposits due? MetcalfeThere is a meeting tonight and tomorrow to finalize things and deposits are I also due then. HubertThey could easily go somewhere closer and cheaper. DugandzicI think that asking a little more fiom each person would be a good idea, because it would make a big difference on the amount we give you. Vote on amendment: 5-8-3, amendment fails New Amendment: HubertChange line 14 from $1200 to $1000, 2nd Metcalfe Motion to vote on amendment: Dugandzic, 2nd McCabe Vote: 10-3-3 amendment passes.

Public Comment Men's Rugby We are going to show you again our expenses for next year as we did last week. We have a picture of our scrum machine and it is still in working conditions and will be for a few more years. The game is very expensive because we want to ensure the safety of the players with good equipment. SwenssonSo are you looking for someone to weld the current scrum machine? Rugby PresidentYes, but if we don't find someone it will still hold up fine. SwenssonAre you doing fundraising in the spring? Rugby PresidentYes we are having the Greased Weasel tournament as our fundraiser. Crew Club Thank you for supporting us this season, our bill is coming up tonight and we ask you to please consider it. VI. Guests of the Senate Dr. Richard Hughes, Director of Campus Life Refer to handout. W. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland I would like to introduce you to Candice LaRue who is running for Supreme Court Justice. We are looking for a new one because Sarah Blood is graduating. She is a public justice major. (Floor goes to Candice) I think that this sounds like a very interesting position and I think that I am qualified to do it. HershkowitzWhy do you think that you would be qualified? CandiceWhen I came to this campus my goals were to do well in school and to continue working but I think I could do this position as well because I am open minded, I wouldn't jump to conclusions and I would do the job to the best of my ability. Vote on appointment: 16-1-0, Candice is the new Supreme Court Justice. Last week was college council and there is a lot coming up next semester. I will have to do a referendum again. I also want to say that I am disappointed in the Senate because of the vote on the new SA logo. You had many of opportunities to come and talk to me about it and you didn't. DugandzicI didn't know that there were so many options of a new logo. Maybe they could have gone into a newsletter. McCabeWas the design that we saw last week final?

PAGE 24

President SutherlandWell no it wasn't final but it was what Andy and I had been working with and we wanted your input, but no one said anything to me so I felt that it was final. DugandzicCan you send out an e-mail with all of the choices? MottWhen we talked about it we thought that maybe having people draw a new logo and have a competition would work. RobinsonWe weren't attacking your idea we just thought that we should have more campus involvement on the decision. President SutherlandWe had a lot of ideas and we had thought about asking the campus. KinnearI think that the one being decided on doesn't grab enough attention, I agree that we should have come to you earlier though. MapesCould we get examples of other logos and then take them to hall councils then come back to you with those decisions? President SutherlandI want to get the logo decided as soon as possible because I want to plaster the campus over winter break. Please get back to me soon! Vice President, Kristin Beck I think that the main problem is that there weren't any other examples brought to senate, only the one option that you had pretty much decided on. I think that bringing other people into the creation would give us more diversity but the problem is a time constraint. I don't think that this is tearing us apart. The senate is showing that they want to work with the President to make a decision. Everyone have a good holiday and end of the semester! Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Last week we did the budget process for direct assembly, only 9 out of 30 groups came so I will be doing another one in February. I met with Auxiliary Services and I will be sending out a budget report through e-mail. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Thank you Nancy for coming to Direct Assembly. I am currently working with the Chemistry department, Delta Sig, and the Women's Center on doing date rape awareness. For the video project, money is getting transferred and the videos are being made. Student Organization of the Month face plates are now all up to date. Director of Public RelationsAndy Drogo In the beginning of the semester I outlined what I wanted to do which was mainly student involvement. I want to change the logo, colors, everything. The reason that we did this internally was because we didn't get any interest from outside. The logo is the first step and then I will work from there. I need to have this done this semester or it is going to end up being a wasted semester for me. I want you to trust President Sutherland's and mine decision-making. Last week there were no comments at the meeting and it is just now coming up. We could have given you reasons and explanations if you had come to see us in the office. DugandzicThis is the most information that we have gotten about it all semester. Director DrogoI have talked about it a few different times that I have been up here I just don't want to bore you with a report every week if there isn't much to say. KinnearI don't think that the resolution was meant to be an attack on the e-board. Director DrogoPersonally, it more offended me that you couldn't come back to me with opinions. I want there to be more under the table communication. KinnearYou are dealing with something that affects SA as a whole so more people should be involved in the decision. Director DrogoI didn't want the process to be bogged down my bringing it to Senate every week. There were no guidelines to my job, President Sutherland and I created my position with no one to look back on. DugandzicWhat is your timeline, what are you going to get out by the end of the semester?

PAGE 25

Director DrogoWe want to get posters, letter heads, business cards, SA descriptive pamphlets. That is why the logo is so urgent. It already took us this long to get it past 8 people. RobinsonI know that it is a new position but I think that early on we could have seen options before it got way into the decision process. MottI understand that you had this timeline but this is something that could take a year instead of just one semester. Director DrogoPlease don't bring any of this down on President Sutherland, he is just supporting me on the issue. HubertWhat are you going to do now that this is going on? Director DrogoI assume that President Sutherland and I are going to discuss it and see what we think we should do. WestfallThis may be the time the talk about it if you want a decision made before break. McCabeThis sounds like a roll for the involvement committee. Director DrogoI approached them in the beginning of the semester and it basically fell through all together. HershkowitzWe aren't part of the e-board but I think that this should have been addressed earlier, something this important should involve the senate. If we address the e-board as a whole it will be more effective than if we go to you as individuals KinnearAt some point this week can we set up a meeting with involvement committee, senators, and e-board? President SutherlandHow about Thursday at 6PM for a meeting? FarrellI think that we should move on and discuss it later. VIII. Senator Issues Forum McCabeThis is my last meeting because next semester I will be unable to be senator. There are a lot of people here who don't know what goes on on this campus. They don't know what organizations do. The new campus center gives us better opportunities to promote SA. I think that Kevin's appointment of a director of public relations is a step in the right direction. I wish everyone luck on moving forward in these issues. LamphereTomorrow in the Union at 2 there will be the off campus forum in room 212. FarrellTonight you will get the constitutional changes in a packet. Check your mailboxes Friday afternoon. Please review these things over winter break. MapesThanks for coming to Senate dinner this semester please try to attend next semester. WesfallI'm bothered by the issue of CCRT and I question the usefulness of the group because it has not been effective. Maybe we should talk to the mayor. Motion to closeRobinson, 2nd Dugandzic M. Committee Reports Policv: We met last Thursday and agreed on the Constitution. We are looking to get with involvement committee on the constitution issues as well. We will meet this Thursday at 7. Procedure: We will have to submit changes to the bi-laws next semester. We are looking to meet with policy the first week of spring semester. These changes have to be made by February 1 I&. We meet this Thursday at 8. Vice President BeckWe can meet the first Tuesday of the semester but it is not required. Finance: Crew club is recommended with an amendment, organization tier status is recommended with an amendment, Men's Rugby is recommended with an amendment, and we will not be meeting this week. Involvement: Last Thursday there was one person at the meeting, attendance is going to have to increase next semester because we will have many important issues to discuss. We are meeting Thursday at 6 in the SA office. Vice President BeckAttendance at the meetings is very important so please go. Health and Safety: We're working on a 3d centro bus to run for the winter. Elections: We have one position open so please consider joining. RobinsonMotion to nominate Senator Bacanskas, 2nd Hubert. Bacanskas accepts and is now a member of Elections committee.

PAGE 26

McCabeI think that it is important to get CCRT moving. The opinion is mixed about our campus from the town people. SA should have some outlet to the city. RobinsonIt isn't that they are against college students. X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.20 Crew Club Coach Payment McCabeCrew Club is very active and they findraise. Communication broke down last year so there was confusion with their budget. They need $500 a semester to pay their coach, HubertMotion to amendStrike lines 1 1-12 "1000 or.. ..a semester". This authorizes $500 for this semester. 2"dMapes HershkowitzWe felt it appropriate to delegate $500 this semester because we don't know what our financial status will be next year.

RES.40.0 1 Student Association Logo HershkowitzWe were talking about whether or not we like the logo, the majority wasn't happy with it. We wanted to be referenced because it affects the campus so much. This was our way of reaching out as a whole. We were in no way trying to force our opinion. We feel that we should have been confronted earlier for an issue this large. HubertThis is just our way of expressing it to you. MetcalfeI agree with Director Drogo that he did bring it up earlier in the year and it is our fault for not taking more action then. I think that we should trust the opinions of the e-board. President Sutherland1 don't think that the Senate should speak as a whole to me, but to the campus. I don't think that a resolution is necessary, I hear your opinions. DugandzicWe should trust our e-board but some form of direction should be implemented. McCabeAre we able to table this? HershkowitzI don't recommend tabling this, someone should just withdraw it. WestfallI agree that there was no discussion last week on the logo. I am personally comfortable with the logo that has been brought to us. Director Drogo and President Sutherland, what would be the effect of delaying the decision of the logo? President SutherlandOur goal was to have this on campus before spring semester. We have the referendum, elections, and so many other things coming up next semester to sell the students. WestfallWe should come to a conclusion by the end of the week so that it is not left up in the air. FarrellIs there a strong need to have this out by the start of the spring semester? Why change something in the middle of an administration? President SutherlandEvery 3 or 4 years it has been changed. We feel that it is time to change the logo again. If you keep putting it off, we may not get to it next semester.

PAGE 27

FarrellIf you are running into problems, why not create a task force for next semester. Make involve as many people as possible. I didn't see that this was brought up any other time in the minutes. President SutherlandWell then that is inefficiency to take the minutes by the minute taker. MapesIs it really a problem to put this off to go to ow hall councils? KinnearWe need to get something out. I don't think that the logo chosen does the job that it should at getting SA out to students. Bringing it to hall councils won't make a very big difference. MottAt the beginning and throughout the semester, you were working on this and I don't think that that was an invitation to us to help in the decision making. I don't feel that this new logo is any better or any worse than the current logo. RobinsonIf we are meeting Thursday I don't see why we cant end this and look at the other logos over e-mail. I motion to table this, 2"d Dugandzic. HershkowitzObjection, just withdraw the resolution instead of tabling it. KinnearWithdrawing it is better than tabling. HerskowitzI fail the motion to table, and motion to withdraw. Vote to table resolution: 0-1 6-1, fails MapesMotion to withdraw, 2"d Dugandzic HubertObjection motion to amend McCabeI think that we have spent enough time on this, I think that any further discussion is irrelevant we should wait and talk on Thursday. HershkowitzI am not totally for withdrawing, we brought up the resolution for a reason. We have checks and balances for a reason. I support getting this done before winter break. President SutherlandWe have discussed this and I have heard your opinions. McCabeMotion to vote on the withdraw, 2"d Dugandzic HershkowitzPoint of order, once it is withdrawn, it is gone. 3.) Res.40.02 Thank you Jen Pufky Vice President BeckI just want to say that Jen has done a great job and impacted this campus greatly. HershkowitzShe has affected the whole campus and has been a great aspect to New York, Oswego, and SUNY Oswego. President SutherlandI have known Jen since freshmen year and no one deserves this recognition more than she does. RobinsonMotion to pass by acclimation, McCabe Jen PufkyI love the work that I do and have done, I hope that I can continue that further. Thank you to SA for letting me do these things. Vice President BeckFor our first meeting next semester, we technically do not have to meet until February IS'. However, the day the slate must be posted is February 7". President SutherlandI would like to call a special session for January 25". XII.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve minutes: Crocker 2nd Ward IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda: Crocker, 2d Hershkowitz V. Public Comment NYPIRG We had a really effective fall semester. We got enough food from food drives that will last the needy families in Oswego until April. We had about 20 media hits last semester This semester we are going to be dealing with the Pataki budget proposal. He wants to raise SUNY tuition $500 and increase it a certain amount every incoming year. We feel that public education should be affordable. Our campaign kicks off this semester and we are working to raise awareness on the issue. Also, our hunger and homeless group is helping with tsunami relief. VI. Executive Reports SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck We have 2 new senators joining us this semester. Belser from Funnelle and from Tossas Hart. I need to know the times for this semester's hall council meetings. I suggest that all of the committees meet sometime after this meeting to set up times that everyone can meet. Director of FinanceNancy Smith Tier 3 organizations got letters about their budget requests for next year. February loth starts the budget process. Grant requests have been sent out and we are waiting on those. Budget council begins Feb 12"-13" and will also be held on Feb 19"-20'. 40 organizations will be coming to us with their budget proposals. I strongly recommend that they use powerpoint for their presentations, it looks better. I will be at direct assembly February 3d to speak about the budget process. An update for the senate accounts: There have been 9 legislations passed. In 6501 there is $33375.52,6502 has $5169.66,6503 has $0,6505 has $2008.1 1, and I will e-mail you about 6506. Over winter break I was doing a flow chart for internal control guidelines. We have set up new reimbursement forms for organizations to follow if they need reimbursement. I want to do fundraising for tsunami relief and I am hoping to get ideas and support from organizations. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston I am and have been one of the few student voices for students with disabilities. I was unable to attend senate last semester due to a class conflict but I will be able to come this semester.

PAGE 30

This semester I want to define my role for other people so that this job can be filled when I leave. I am the only director to give homework and quizzes, but I am going to be bringing them back this semester. Does anyone want to talk about the kind of work I give? HershkowitzThey are either small research things or quizzes. I think it's good because it catches you off guard. Dan does a good job at getting across what he is trying to do. RobinsonYou really learn things by doing the work Dan gives you. If you want to, it would help out my goal if you give them to your hall councils. My office hours are not posted yet, but they will be this week. SA PresidentKevin Sutherland: Report given by Andrew Drogo Kevin wanted to update you on last semesters work. We got 8 organizations back up to Tier 3 who were previously dropped and one more has reached Tier 3 status. We worked on moving the Student Organization elections to the beginning of the spring. We worked on the SA logo and image as a whole. We got the Ontarian back up and running and we have sold many copies. This semester, we want to work on financial policy updates such as inventory, fundraising, criteria for funding, student employee payroll, travel guidelines, reimbursement approval, and internal control guidelines. We are going to work on getting SAVAC a garage and evaluating their expenses because they want to put a fee into the student's bill. There could be a possible SA fee increase again this year. Working on some sort of transportation made available to organizations for events. We want to build a cash reserve and evaluate the budget process. We have been working on and posting fliers for the spring break trip to Panama City. Wanted to let everyone know that Supreme Court is back in the SA office. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo I am working on getting more computers in the SA ofice, possibly getting some donated to us from a website that I found. I want there to be night hours that the office is open so that it is available to organizations and so that people can reach us if they can't see us during the day. As of now, organizations have access to 3 computers and a printer without charge. The new SA logo process was delayed a bit, but it is underway and we got it painted on the wall of the ofice. We have ordered posters, letter heads, business cards, etc. with the new logo and they will be here soon to start promotion. A lot of people on this campus don't feel involved and it is our goal to get them involved. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator MottI am working on a bill for the Oswegonian to improve their paper. They want to be able to print in color and they are looking to get a contract with the Palladium Times. They are in need of a new computer as well. I hope that another senator will cosign the bill with me. Senator MapesElections are coming up and if you are interested in running you can pick up an application in the SA office, they are due on the 7fi by 5PM. Motion to close: Farrell, 2"* Ward VIn. Committee Reports Policy: We met before break and we talked about what we were going to do after the Constitution is done. We want to get a booth in the union and work together with WTOP, WNYO, and the Oswegonian. Our meetings for this semester will be determined soon. Procedure: We discussed senate changes to the Constitution. There will be no meeting this week. Finance: I have had 2 organizations come to me with bills already so ifthere is any senator that wants to take charge of those, that would be fine. Involvement: There is no meeting this week. Kinnear nominated Tossas for Involvement, 2nd Robinson. Tossas accepts and is now on Involvement committee. Health and Safety: There is no meeting this week; I'd like to meet tonight after the meeting to set up a time.

PAGE 31

Elections: Last meeting we reviewed the election law. Please meet after this meeting briefly. CCRT: I have called them; if they don't get back to me I will keep trying. Hershkowitz nominates Belser for Finance committee, 2"d Robinson. Belser accepts. IX. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.25 2004 Student Association Constitutional Revisions and Referendum Language Farrell: You have been given one copy with strike-throughs, one clean copy, and a copy of the Constitutional Revisions. This year's referendum is going to be online. 0 Scharfenberger: In Article I it should say Student Association Incorporated at the State University of New York at Oswego. 0 Mapes: In Article I1 it should say "who have paid the Student Association Activity Fee" Scharfenberger: I actually think it should say "who have paid the Student Activity Fee" Scharfenberger" In Article V, does it mean concurrently when it says that no Student Association member can hold elected or appointed ofice in more than one branch of the government at a time? Changed to ''no Student Association member shall hold elected or appointed ofice in more than one branch of the government at one time ..." Hershkowitz: We are adding the at large senator, we will write specifics on this in the by-laws. There are always more people on campus that want to get involved in senate that are unable to, with the change, it will give more people a chance to get involved. Westfall: A faculty assembly member isn't mentioned in Article VI, Section 11. There could be up to three seats filled by faculty assembly members. Also, our role is not mentioned and could create a problem later on. Add "Also Faculty representatives shall participate in the Senate" to Article VI, Section 11. Scharfenberger: I think that the faculty position description should be described in a different section or in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: In Article VI Section 111, the last sentence is confusing. No one will be denied representation, so using population could be confusing. Hershkowitz: We could change it to "All Activity Fee paying students." Hubert: Could we use "student population as a whole"? Farrell: It doesn't clearly state what student population. We should put in "no fee paying student". That shows that everyone who pays the fee will be represented. Hubert: Does legislation mean referendums and resolutions? Hershkowitz: Resolutions are labeled differently. Mott: Could we split this process between two meetings so we aren't here for a long time tonight? Vice President Beck: We will take a vote after we finish this article. Hubert: If 213 of the residents need to vote out a senator, but only 113 decide to vote, a senator could not be removed. Hershkowitz: On campus senators must have % of the constituents petition for a senator recall. 213 of the constituents must vote to remove them. President Sutherland: couldn't you invalidate the constitution if the referendum were to fail Farrell: I think that if we lost a referendum, invalidating the constitution would be the last problem we would want to deal with. Mott: I think that there is confusion with the off-campus members and needing 213 of the voting population. Hershkowitz: This is something that we will clear up in the by-laws. Farrell: It will be easier to amend if we have it in the by-laws. Hershkowitz: Motion to recess, and come back to finish tonight. 2nd Mapes. Crocker: Motion to re-refer for one week, 2nd Mott

PAGE 32

X. XI. a Robinson: I just want to say that after tonight there are two Tuesdays until the slate is posted. I want to get it done as soon as possible. We have the meeting now to get it done. Vote to re-refer: 12-6-1, not 213 vote Break begins at 8:05 Back to Order: 8:18 Scharfenberger: In Article IX, it doesn't say anything about the appointment of the Civil Oficers. Hershkowitz: That will go in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: You could change officers to directors. President Sutherland: Going back to Article VII, Section 111, you should add a number 5 and include the executive management of the Student Association Services. Scharfenberger: In Article VIII, Section 11, it implies that you can increase the number of members in the court at any time. Westfall: You could put specifics about that in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: In Article VIII, Section N, add a #7, Hershkowitz: In Article XIX, it says something about "religious artifacts and materials". What if JSU for example wanted Torahs or something educational? Scharfenberger: You could just strike the section because they can buy religions materials if they are used for educational, social, or intellectual issues. Hershkowitz: The funding requirements are OK until Section IV at the tier status. We should drop section IV a, b, and c. It is OK if we leave the funding, Scharfenberger: Section 5,6,7, and 8 are not constitutional but are policy. Hershkowitz: We can strike 5,6, and 7 because this is already in the financial policy. Vote on Legislation: 13-0-1 Legislation passes. Roll Call: Swensson, Belser, Tossas, Bacanskas, Farrell, Durgin, Ward, Beal, Mapes, Hubert, Kinnear, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall Adjournment 9:lOPM Motion to AdjournHershkowitz, 2nd Farrell

They covered ambulance and radio replacement. A new ambulance was recently purchased, but a new one is necessary every 5 years in order to maintain efficiency and also still hold a high trade in value. Would like help from SA to think of new hding ideas Information from Senate Questions: Auxiliary Services cut hnding because they had other places to spend their money and their contract with the college increased. Received about $50,000 from Auxiliary Services in 5 years and the other half from SA and other sources Extending the warranty is a possibility instead of replacing this ambulance within 5 years but will not keep ambulance past 2008-2009 The last ambulance sold for $40,000, a new one is $70,000-100,000 Cannot replace the truck and not the box because it puts too much wear and tear on the box Usually take approximately 200 people to the hospital in the year Katie from NYPIRG: Voter week is well underway and is continuing throughout the week. There will be a concert Thursday (Sept 30) in Hewitt union. Registration deadline is October 8.

They covered ambulance and radio replacement. A new ambulance was recently purchased, but a new one is necessary every 5 years in order to maintain efficiency and also still hold a high trade in value. Would like help from SA to think of new funding ideas Information from Senate Questions: Auxiliary Services cut funding because they had other places to spend their money and their contract with the college increased. Received about $50,000 from Auxiliary Services in 5 years and the other half from SA and other sources Extending the warranty is a possibility instead of replacing this ambulance within 5 years but will not keep ambulance past 2008-2009 The last ambulance sold for $40,000, a new one is $70,000-100,000 Cannot replace the truck and not the box because it puts too much wear and tear on the box Usually take approximately 200 people to the hospital in the year Katie from NYPIRG: Voter week is well underway and is continuing throughout the week. There will be a concert Thursday (Sept 30) in Hewitt union. Registration deadline is October 8.

Sign ups will be during the beginning of that week. Director of Student Affairs, Billy Nichols Thanks to Senator Mott for presenting at Direct Assembly. VIII. Senator Issues Forum Farrell: Thank you to Kevin for bringing the voting booth to campus, however; there was a lot of confusion with Mackin residents and where they should be voting. I will be filing a complaint to the county board of elections so that this doesn't happen again. Dugandzic: I heard that there was supposed to be transportation to voting booths off campus, but there wasn't any. Dr.Scharfenberger: That could have been something carried over from last year, but this year they were not providing transportation. Robinson: I think that it is a good idea to file a complaint to the board of elections and also, see if there is a way to post directions to off campus voting sites because there were a lot of people who didn't know where they were supposed to vote. They also should look into getting another booth, Hershkowitz: When I was at the polls at 9AM, they already knew that they could have used another booth. McCabe: My concern was that there was still a really long line at 8:30 and people have to be there by 9, will they be turned away if they aren't up to that point in line by 9? Vice President Beck: No, as long as you are in line by 9, then you are able to vote. Dugandzic: If they do switch to more than one booth in the future, I think that they should let students know ahead of time because if they think that the line is going to be as long, they may not even come out to vote. Mott: Renee Lamphere is a possible new off campus senator. Dr. Scharfenberger: SA is paying for the booth to be on campus and they didn't anticipate the numbers that they got today. For the next election there will probably not be as big of a turnout because it won't be the presidential. Hubert: WTOP had its kickoff and there was a show on that heavily supported Kerry, people complained to me about it, are they allowed to do that? McCabe: Yes they are allowed to do it as long as in the beginning of the show they state that the opinions in the show do not necessarily pertain to those of the people on the show. Crocker: There was a support Bush flier in the Union on a bulletin board and it wasn't stamped approved to be there. Mott: Janitors take any unstamped ones down at night if they come across them.

Events are planned for black history month The Hewitt Union movie theatre fills up just about every week. The concert this semester is next weekend and we decided to do a rap show in there because usually we lose money on rap shows so we are trying to see what happens when we mix. 700 tickets have sold so far and 2500 is sell out. Every ticket sold goes along with a free year's subscription to Rolling Stone magazine. The concert committee consists of about 30 members and promotions are going out on local radio stations and elsewhere. Proxy TompkinsAre the 700 tickets to mostly on or off-campus students? SAPB representativeIt is pretty much an even mix of the two Senator CrockerWhat will the next concert be? SAPB repThat depends on how much money is made on this concert. May Day is already in the works for next semester. NY PIRG This weekend is a conference at New Paltz for surrounding colleges and their NYPIRG group. We have 10 members attending.

Mike Gewirtzman is part of "Our show is better than your show" and I had the honor of doing the ribbon cutting last week where we made a bet on blackjack. If he won he would be SA President for a day and if I won he would take me to global buffet. He beat me in best out of 5 so he will be your SA president for a day.

I attended student assembly this past weekend and Kristin and I sat in meetings almost all weekend. We talked about getting more collaboration between colleges especially between community colleges. If you want more information on the weekend, come see me in my office hours. Thursday is the Open House and we need someone to sit at the SA booth from 101 1 is there anyone able to do that?Senator Hershkowitz is able to and will do it. This week I don't have the legislation that I wanted to submit because when I was writing it up I was using an old copy of the by-laws. In regards to the financial policy, Nancy and I are working together on it. I was not able to make it last week because I had to help the on campus voting and we ended up having 946 votes in the machine and 200 affidavits. College Hour task force met last Friday. College Hour is a programming hour when there are no classes at this time. Faculty assembly didn't like the time that we picked to have it, but they liked the idea of it. Vice President Beck: They were also concerned with having to change around the class starting times. Hubert: What are the benefits to this? President Sutherland: Commuters and professors would stay on campus instead of just leaving for home after their class. We want a time when the majority of students are on campus. Westfall: I will send out an explanation of college hour on the list-serve. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck Please sign up for miss-a-meal table slot in the dining hall. You only have to sit there for a half hour. Student assembly this weekend went well they elected a new vice president and treasurer. They had a musician play on Saturday and we are looking to have him come to the campus to perfom. Senator Benjamin from Fumelle has resigned. Assistant Director of FinanceKelly Lyon All SA organizations are having November audit. Treasurers of the clubs need to meet with Nancy and it is highly recommended that Tier 3 organizations attend this or it may bump them down for next year. Point of Information: What does account 650 1 entail? Dr. ScharfenbergerWe would need to sit down and talk about it, it is too in-depth. MetcalfeHow much money is in account 6502 right now? MottRight now we have $82 12.66 Director of Public RelationsAndy Drogo Dan Tascarella and I have been working on an idea for organizations to be able to use our computer lab in the SA office. A lot of groups want new computers and we thought that this would save us some money if we can get it to work. They could get access to the room possibly from the building manager, and a lot of nights there are late meetings in the office. We will have to buy their software but that would be cheaper than buying a bunch of computers. President SutherlandWe could get a list of all of the Presidents of clubs and give it to the building manager to let only them in. MI. Senator Issues Forum Senator MetcalfeLast Wednesday I submitted a bill and it didn't go through, I was just wondering why? Vice President BeckThere was too many questions about the bill so it didn't go into the agenda. MetcalfeWhat happened was that the old treasurer thought that they got more money in the spring semester so that they could pay the coach but in reality they were only allotted the money in the fall and the coach hadn't been paid when the new treasurer took over. The new treasurer thought he had been paid in the fall but he hadn't.

PAGE 31

HershkowitzI'm wondering if we can even pay him for what he owed him from last year. MottCan we even do what the bill was asking? MetcalfeLast year Dessima gave permission to the new treasurer to take out what was left in the account to pay the coach which was only about $150. Director LyonsIt is a different fiscal year so I don't know if we can do it. Treasurer of Club: The coach is looking for money from last year that we still owe him which is about $600. We have already paid him for his services this year. HershkowitzI don't think you are allowed to do reimbursements from last year. Treasurer of ClubThe coach is in a financial position that requires the money. CrockerCould we say that we owe him for this year and since he has been paid for this year, say he has been paid for last year and make it into a bill that says he needs to be paid for this year's service? Director LyonIt depends on their budget lines and we would have to look into the details because you can't have reimbursement in a fiscal year. MottThis is why we didn't bring the bill here this week, there were too many unanswered questions about it. DugandzicHow do you define reimbursement? Could we get a statement from the coach saying that the price is raised for this year enough to cancel what we owe? HershkowitzIt depends on the structure of the bill and the contract. DrScharfenbergerWait for Nancy to answer some of these questions. If you didn't allocate it in last semester's budget, you cannot get reimbursed for it. HershkowitzWere you Tier 2 or Tier 3 last year? Treasurer of ClubI believe Tier 3 HubertCan we access 6501 at all? President SutherlandThat is strictly an emergency fund only. Vice President BeckWe have been able to shift funds in the past if we knew we were set with the accounts. Kelly Lyons6502 is for you to give out to organizations. In your mind 6501 should be CANNOT access. Senator CrockerThe Black Student Union fashion show is December 4~ at 7PM and tickets are $7. The Gospel Choir is also having their concert that night at 6PM. Senator RobinsonSenator Durgin, Director Drogo, and I attended workshops at student assembly and we run our meetings much more efficiently than other schools. Some of them only had one senator for every 1000 students. Some schools don't use Robert's Rules and some don't even know what they are. We went to a meeting on how to run a meeting and basically they showed us how to make an agenda. When we compared other constitutions we found out that ours us put together very well. An acapella group called the Earthtones was there performing you should check out the website. Motion to close: Crocker, 2nd Hubert VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Met last week and we wrote things up about senator at large issue. Next week we will look at President Sutherland's changes. We need another member and I nominate Senator Lamphere, 2nd Crocker. Motion to close nominationsDugandzic, 2nd Proxy Tompkins Procedure: Looked over other schools constitutions and we will write proposals for senator at large issue. Finance: This Thursday's meeting will be at 9, but think about other times that you could potentially attend meetings. We discussed accounts 6501 and 6502, we will continue to look at them but we will look at it knowing that $6000 is all we have left for the year. On the bills for this week; we do not recommend the printer for JSU because they have other options. We do recommend the rugby bill. We recommend the social justice club bill with amendments. We recommend women's ice hockey bill with an amendment. We do not recommend the Alpha Epsilon Rho Convention bill. Health and Safety: Meeting this week at 9: 15 on Wednesday in the Library Cafk.

Elections: We finalized a timeline for this year and we will be meeting this Thursday at 8:30PM. IX. General Orders 1 .) SLE40.11 Jewish Student Union Computer Hubert: I am currently looking for ideas for computer use. I have talked to people from campus life about possibly moving an IMac into their office. President SutherlandThe network that they will be on allows them to print in the SA ofice as well. HubertThey may need software as well. I recommend that we refer to finance for another week. MottDon't recommend them to finance, their bill says nothing about software. Motion to vote: Dugandzic, 2nd Swensson 1-1 1-5, Legislation fails 2.) SLE.20.13 Men's Rugby Account Transfer President SutherlandRugby got bumped down to Tier 2 this year and at the beginning of the year they were having events and senate wasn't in session yet so I allowed them to use money from my executive account and we both signed a contract saying he would reimburse me for the full amount. HershkowitzI have read the contract, do you think that you violated the policy because Men's Rugby signed the contract? You would have to sign the contract for them and for you and also it was signed September 3'd before budget council met. President SutherlandI can do what I feel with my executive accounts. HershkowitzMotion to amend. Strike lines 7-10. 2nd Crocker. DugandzicWhat are you trying to protect by amending the bill in this way? HershkowitzI don't think that the contract was binding and I don't want President Sutherland to get in trouble. President SutherlandIt was just him and I making an agreement to make sure I would get the money back. SwenssonSo the money will go back in whether or not the amendment is in there. Vote on amendment14-0-3, Amendment passes. Hubert: motion to vote on bill, 2nd ~ershkowitz 15-0-2, Legislation Passes. 3 .) SLE.40.14 Social Justice Club Newsletter MottMotion to amend, Strike lines 14 and 15 so they have more freedom with their money and likes 11 and 17 change $855 to $400. They do very little fundraising so we felt that $400 was a fair amount. 2nd Farrell SwenssonCan they just come back next semester and ask for more money? MottYes they can, we will probably be resistant to give it to them though. HubertI took the bill to my hall council and they still disagree with it even after the change to $400. They think that this money could be better used elsewhere. FarrellThey sometimes print questionable material so do you think that we run a risk of violating policy? HershkowitzThey have no suits against them and they have not violated the policy yet so we can't make that a factor. MetcalfeDo we spend more money in the fall or the spring? HershkowitzThat is hard to predict, we usually spend all of the money we are allotted though. MetcalfeHow many organizations dropped status this year? Vice President BeckI think 8 MetcalfeWe are still using the same amount of money as last year even though we had organizations drop status. Vice President BeckYes, but we also added more Tier 3 organizations. MetcalfeDid WTOP use this year's money or last year's for their new equipment? HershkowitzI believe that last year we reworked their account. MetcalfeWTOP isn't doing any programming or news this year, can we ask them for money back?

Vote on amendment 15-0-1, Amendment passes DugandzicWhat does their newsletter consist of? $45 per letter to print seems like a lot. MottIt could easily get up to $45. HubertThey print on colored booklet paper which is expensive, they could easily put articles in the Oswegonian. MottThe $45 was taken out of the bill in the amendment. Vote on bill: 3-8-6, Legislation fails 4.) SLE.40.15 Women's Hockey Club RobinsonNew information has been brought to my attention that could potentially change the total of the bill so I recommend referring to finance for 1 week. 2nd Metcalfe. 5.) SLE.40.16 Alpha Epsilon Rho Regional Convention FarrellThis bill has been sent to fail; they will not be able to attend the convention even if they receive the full amount. President SutherlandThey are an honor society so we can't fund them anyways. Director LyonsThey are Tier 1 and they don't fundraise at all, we haven't heard from them all year. HershkowitzWe had that question about them being an honor society we decided to go with it though because the constitution was approved.

Call to Order: 6:05 PM 11. Roll Call: Crocker, McCabe, Proxy Tompkins, Coleman, Farrell, Durgin, Ward, Dugandzic, Mapes, Hubert, Kinnear, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall 111. Approval of Minutes Motion to approve the minutesDugandzic, 2nd Farrell IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve the agendaMcCabe, 20d Hubert V. Public Comment Men's Rugby We currently owe $600 to the executive account We have a $3000 CD that we are looking into accessing in order to pay off expenses. Scrum machine is still working so we will not need to replace ours this year. Women's Club Hockey We really need the money to perform as a team and look like a team. Last week we lost our game and this weekend we play Skidmore and SU NYPIRG Last week I attended the hunger banquet, in which a maximum of 60 tickets was sold and there ended up being about 75 people attending, 25 were onlookers to the event. It was a very positive, informative experience. We attended a conference last weekend at New Paltz, 9 students attended and they got to go to workshops on various topics. This Saturday at Human Concerns we are going to be making Thanksgiving baskets also we are going to be at P&C asking people to buy an item to donate for needy families. Social Justice Club We have a bill tonight for $350 that will be for the whole year for the newsletter. We hope to get more newsletters out sooner rather than later. Some members have paid out of their pocket for past fliers. We know that the budget is stretched but we believe that our newsletter should be put out because our SA fee allows us to get peoples opinions out openly. HubertHave you done any fundraising? SJCNo, it is hard for us to do, but we are looking into it. HubertWhat about placing ads in the newsletter? McCabeYou should be putting in a disclaimer to the newsletters stating that the opinions stated are not the opinions of SA or other people writing in the newsletter. SJCWe had an anti-Bush segment but that doesn't mean that everyone in SJC is against Bush. RobinsonCould you get some copies for senate so we can see what the newsletter entails? Proxy TompkinsWhere and when do you distribute the newsletter? SJCWe distribute around campus and in the union on Fridays, We are looking to decrease the numbers of fliers that are printed to save us some money. FarrellDo you give out a lot of fliers in the Hewitt Union? SJCProbably about 200 copies are given out in the union. FarrellHow much has been spent out of pocket from your members? SJCAbout $80 an issue.

PAGE 36

DurginHave you thought about saving money by printing on white paper? SJCWe will do it if need be, but then the fliers won't be as appealing. DugandzicHow many members do you currently have? SJCWe have about 30 members but a lot of our writers are not members. DugandzicWhat is the mission of the Social Justice Club? SJCWe want to educate the campus and the community about issues that are left out of main stream media. HubertHow is reducing the number that you print going to be effective towards your mission? SJCIt is a last resort, we would only do it if we really needed to save the money. HubertHave you thought about printing in the Oswegonian? SJCThe Oswegonian may not be able to publish all of the articles that we print. We know that the articles will be published in our newsletter. DugandzicHave you worked with any other clubs? SJCWe have worked with JSU, NYPIRG, Women's Center, and Rainbow Alliance. Proxy TompkinsHave you made yourselves a web page to distribute the articles online? SJCWe have done that already. WardCould you work together with NYPIRG financially to do the newsletter? SJCWe don't have identical views with them and we would like to but it may not be realistic. They also have financial concerns of their own. VI. Guests of the Senate Jerry DeSantis, Associate Vice President for Facilities Services he renovktions being done to this campus are approximately $100 Million over 10 years and we are half way through the project. There are 4 major projects that are being done. They are; Construction of campus center, renovations of Poucher Hall, Sheldon Hall, and Swetman Hall. The funding Is State and donated funds. Residence hall renovations will be done in the next few years. The new Campus Center will be complete in the fall if 2007. President SutherlandWhere will classes go when Poucher and Swetman are in the process of renovations? Mr. DeSantisThere will be open rooms in Rich Hall and classes online. McCabeWhat will Sheldon be used for? Mr. DeSantisThe first floor will be used as the daycare, there will be classrooms and what we call search space which departments can use when buildings are being renovated. Director LyonsThe 10 year plan is half over, what is the rest allocated to? Mr. DeSantisElectrical infrastructure, renovated exteriors. Director NicholsWill there be anymore renovations later? Mr. DeSantisYes we will do renovations to Park, Lanigan, and Wilbur. CrockerWill there be any renovations to new campus? Mr. DeSantisYes we will be doing renovations to windows, entries, exteriors, infrastructure improvements, and elevators. Director LyonsWhat are Riggs and Lakeside funded by? Mr. DeSantisDormitory authority revenue bonds. McCabeAre we going to do any repairs for roof problems? Mr. DeSantisHart roof was replaced 2 years ago and so was the library, we will do repairs if they are necessary. Director LyonsWhat happens to the current union when the new one is complete? Mr. DeSantisWe are still unsure, it has mechanical problems, some of it will remain open for possible academic use. Director NicholsAre there going to be renovations to Piez and Snygg? Mr. DeSantisThe science programs are looking into it and seeing what is necessary. HubertAre there going to be anymore Lakeside renovations? Mr. DeSantisThere probably will be at some time but it is too early to tell. Proxy TompkinsAre there going to be any clubs or student hangouts in the new union?

PAGE 37

Mr. DeSantisThere will be lots of spaces in the union and Swetman for that. HershkowitzIs there a time lapse camera on the Funnelle roof? Mr. DeSantisThere is a webcam on top of Hart that monitors the construction site. The concrete foundations will be done this year and the end of next summer it will be a building. Oswegonian representativeAre you digging up anything hazardous in the process? Mr. DeSantisWe did an environmental test before we began to make sure that it was safe. We did hit asbestos insulation buried next to steam lines. Proxy TompkinsIs there going to be any sort of cross campus road? Mr. DeSantisIt isn't in the plan there will be interior walkways though. DugandzicAre there any places to see prospective looks of the building? Mr. DeSantisThere are pictures placed on the fences around the work area. MottUB has tunnels between almost all of their buildings, I think that we need it more than Buffalo does. CrockerI live in Cayuga and the walkway between Seneca and Cayuga closes at night, why is that? President SutherlandThat is a safety measure. Director NicholsWhat are the plans for the fountain? Mr. DeSantisThe fountain will be gone, all in front of Swetman is being redesigned. President SutherlandAre we going to redirect the entrance to the college? Mr. DeSantisNo, but there will be 3 main entrances. McCabeThe fountain was an expensive gift to the college, have you talked to alumni representatives? Mr. DeSantisYes they have been contacted, but I don't know what they decided. Director NicholsAre they going to have clubs sponsor trees that are put up by the new union? Mr. DeSantisNo, but it is possible. Oswegonian Rep.Is there a name for the new Campus Center? Mr. DeSantisNot yet decided, but it is in the works. Director LyonsSo everything is on schedule and not over budget? Mr. DeSantisSo far yes, we spend a lot of time making sure that it is on schedule. Director LyonsWhat will we see going on in the winter? Mr. DeSantisYou will see inside renovations. VII. Executive Reports SA President: Kevin Sutherland Mike Gewirtzman gives closing speech (was SA President for the day). I had a meeting with Chuch Wheaks about the SAVAC garage and he is willing to front the money, we will have to make a contract. I went to a campus safety meeting and if you are interested in attending future meetings let me know. Last week I was upset to see how many people abstained from the Social Justice Club bill. Vice President, Kristin Beck Miss-A-Meal sign ups are going well we have about 500 people signed up in Littlepage. SAPB concert is this Saturday Abstentions from last week were also a disappointment to me, It is like you are giving up your right to vote. If you still have questions about the bill when it comes up to vote, object to the vote and get the information you need. Special orders bill has to be decided on tonight so think about how your constituents would vote. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith We have been working on guidelines for the financial policy and we will be meeting Thursday to determine criteria on funding for SA organizations. I sent out an e-mail to all the senators "Why should we fund organizations" please bring it to your hall councils. I am meeting with Auxiliary Services to discuss them taking over accounting books.

PAGE 38

I was informed that the Oswegonian had a digital camera stolen from their office and I need a police report to give to the insurance company. President SutherlandWas it reported to the police? Director SmithI don't have the report so I don't know. The camera wasn't locked up in a safe place. I will see what I can do about unlocked offkes in the Union. Oswegonian RepWe don't have keys for the office staff so we started locking it at night. We did file a report and will have it to you by the end of this week. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Direct Assembly is November 18~ and Dr. Hughes and Mike Pastella will be doing a leadership presentation. As of this afternoon, there were 7 applications for organization of the month. VIII. Senator Issues Forum MattI do not have a problem with the Social Justice Club bill itself but I was wondering why it is under special orders? I thought that it was meant for emergencies. I think that it should go under regular procedures. HershkowitzI talked to the Vice President of the club and they wanted to move it along before winter break. We only have 2 or 3 more meetings before break. The bill itself was brought up last week and went through hall councils then, It was put on special orders because of a time issue. HubertI agree that the bill should not be in special orders. I thought that they said the money wasn't even going to cover all of the issues. I remember Senator Hershkowitz saying that you were trying to bypass hall council. HershkowitzI did say that but I don't think that it needed to go to hall councils again because almost the same exact bill already went through them. KinnearPeople have a right to say what they want to say and they deserve the money as much as any other club does, their paper serves a different purpose. HubertWe represent our constituents and I think that the bill should have been brought to them. Motion to closeMcCabe, 2nd Mapes IX. Committee Reports Policv: Finalized changes to constitution and this week we will go over it to make sure we are happy with what we decided. We meet this Thursday at 7 in library cafd. Procedure: Helped write the changes with senator Farrell, it is on its way to legislation, we meet this Thursday at 8. Finance: We meet every Thursday at 9. The women's ice hockey bill really had no problems and we recommend it with amendments. We talked about boxing bill and we are still working on it. Involvement: Talked about the referendum issue during elections for next semester. Meet the Thursday after break. Health and Safetv: We're looking to get a 31d centro bus to run for the winter. Elections: We went over the elections timeline and I will send out an e-mial about the meeting. CCRTI called them and they will get back to me. Auxiliarv Services Board of DirectorsThere are properties that are unimportant and unused. X. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.19 Social Justice: "Get Free Times" HershkowitzThey were very distraught to know that the bill failed last week. They don't do things that they can make money on. We know how our hall councils feel, that is why it is on special orders. I think it is important to find them because there isn't a product like this that is readily available to the campus. It keeps our campus diverse. Please vote for it, I think it is important. RobinsonI recommend that they think about printing on white paper. Also, if they write about something that you don't agree with, write to them and tell them. HubertThs issue is that our constituents don't want to pay SA money to them because there are other ways for them to print their info. McCabeThis organization wants assistance in printing something, even if we don't like what it says, they are still going to print their opinions. They are asking a reasonable amount.

PAGE 39

"c4 XI. XII. XIII. XIV. KinnearThere are a lot of clubs that our constituents don't know about, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't help or support them. FarrellThey should advertise that it is available online. Even if we don't agree with it some people do. They should have the ability to hand it out. HubertThey should be able to print, but if another organization wants a newsletter do we have to give them the money too? The Oswegonian has plenty of room for their articles. DugandzicMotion to vote McCabeObjection, The Oswegonian opinion section isn't meant for full organizations, they don't have the space to print so many editorials. WardThe Oswegonian and SJC have their own purposes and it would be a conflict of interest if they were to join. FarrellWe aren't obligated to give money to other clubs. Proxy TompkinsThe Oswegonian requires AP format and this paper requires no format and some of their writers submit poems. MottAnyone can submit articles to the Oswegonian but they do the best they can to have journalism majors write the articles. Motion to voteFarrell, 2nd McCabe ObjectionHubert HubertMotion to refer to finance for 1 week, 2"d Mott HershkowitzObjection, I have tried to explain the clubs feelings, we know how our hall councils will vote, the outcome won't be different this week. KinnearIf it goes to finance we are just going to keep debating it. HubertThe fact that there is so much debating shows that we should go to finance and our councils. McCabeWe don't have to have a unanimous senate in order to vote Vote on motion to refer to finance: 2-13-1 Motion fails Motion to vote on billMapes, 2nd McCabe Vote: 14-1 -1 Legislation Passes General Orders 1 .)

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve minutes: Crocker, 2"d Mapes IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda: Crocker, 2nd Hershkowitz V. Public Comment S APB Breakdown on the ticket numbers for concert: There were 2094 ticket holders before the show. 163 bought tickets the day of the show. We made $28,943 on the concert and we need to make $35,000 to meet our income line. Cinavision is also very close to their income line. MapesCan we request bands for next semester? Mike GewirtzmanYes I am always open for suggestions but I won't be working on it until January. Crew Club We had a great season this year. At the end of the season we still have about 70 members which is phenomenal. We took about 50 members to each Regatta. We have a bill for tonight and it is to pay the coach $500 for the year. Every Friday night we have a pasta dinner at the Newman Center and everyone is welcome to come. Men's Rugby Our total fall expenses are $2870 and our total spring expenses are $5805 This year we are working with a much smaller budget because we were dropped to a Tier 2 due to errors made by the past administration. We have coaching expenses of $1000 per year and we aren't going to be able to pay him with our budget. In the spring we host the greased weasel tournament and we usually have about 12-15 teams participate. They are charged about $200 to play in the tournament so we will get some money from that. We are willing to sacrifice getting a new scrum machine and using the money in our CD to pay for some of our expenses. The machine we have now can be repaired and if we keep repairing it, it could last another 3-4 years. VI. Guest of the Senate Gospel ChoirConcert this Saturday in Hewitt Union VII. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland Thanks to Ian Farrell for helping to write the legislation, it will be coming to the senate next week because any constitutional changes have to be made in the fall semester. Andy Drogo has been working on a new SA logo and we have come up with one that has been agreed upon. We are also working on a brochure of SA to let people know what we do and how we work.

PAGE 42

According to the student association fee policy, we have to have a referendum every 2 years now, but even though we did one last year, they want us to start fresh this year, so it may be a possibility. The college hour taskforce has come up with two different times that they are going to be proposing to faculty assembly. I think they have come up with a time that will most benefit students. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck I have not received totals on miss-a-meal yet but if I do I will bring them next week. Senator Strum is here from Fumelle who will be here for next semester. The new Hart Hall Senator will be starting soon as well. Director of FinanceNancy Smith No report WestfallCould we get an update on the totals in account 6502? Director SmithAs of right now I have $9,997.66 MottI have about $7800 if we add in bills that have not been passed. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Student Organization of the month for November was JSU, however they didn't show up to Direct Assembly to receive their award so we will be implementing that as new criteria for the award, you must be present to receive it. Video Project videos were purchased Direct Assembly is this Thursday, December 2nd and Nancy Smith will be presenting. VIII. Senator Issues Forum RobinsonI want to resign from elections committee because next semester I will be running for SA Vice President FarrellI also want to resign from elections committee because next semester I will be running for SA President. HubertWhy is the ski and snowboard bill on special orders? MetcalfeWe need a bus by Wednesday, but I will talk about it when I present the bill. CrockerThe BSU fashion show is this Saturday in Waterman theatre at 7PM. Motion to close: Robinson, 2nd Mapes IX. Committee Reports Policy: We finalized changes on the constitution and next week we will have a packet for the Senators to show them the changes made. Our meeting is Thursday at 7. Procedure: We went over the responsibilities of Senator at large, next week we will look at the impeachment law. Finance: Meeting Thursday at 9. Health & SafetyMeeting Wednesday at 9: 15 Elections: If interested, please join the committee. We now need 2 more people. Motion to Nominate Senator StrumDugandzic, 2"d McCabe, Strum accepts nomination; now a member of elections committee. X. Special Orders 1. SLE.40.24 Ski and Snowboard: Metcalfe: This bill is on special orders tonight because PO'S are due soon. Our President needs to know by Wednesday if we need the bus. We go to Tremblant every year in Quebec and this year we are hoping for 60 people. We used to be able to take 15 passenger vans but they require 25 year old drivers and we don't have two people to do it. The bus is all inclusive for us. We allow people's families to go (not on the bus) but they get the group rate for the ski ticket. Every year we go to Killington, Tremblant, and some local hills. This year the Tremblant trip is $350 for the room and the lift ticket for the week, this is all out of pocket. Each person is willing to pay an extra $15-$20 in order to have the luxury of the bus. It is $3000 to get the bus for the week and our budget right now is $1200 and if we charge people $15 a piece that will get us another $600 so we still need another $1200. DugandzicWhere does the bus leave from?

PAGE 43

MetcalfeIt will leave from Oswego and we get permission for people to park on campus. HubertHave you done any fundraising? 0 MetcalfeWe are looking to do fundraising next semester but it would only defer the costs out of our pocket; If we go over 40 people on this trip, can we return the unused money? Vice President BeckYes, you can say in the bill that the money will be returned if unused. MetcalfeMotion to amend: add line 17 to say any unused money will be returned to account 6502, 2nd Ward. 16-0-1, Amendment Passes HubertI spoke to my hall council and they felt that we should give you some money but not the full amount. We agreed to bring it down to $1000. McCabeIf they have a rough number of people who are going, it would be inconvenient to have them change the amount that people put in for transportation. DugandzicI think that it is up to the club if they want to put in more money. CrockerThe money is going to go back to 6502 if it is unused anyway so we should give them the full amount. WardIf we raise it by $5 it may change the number of people willing to go. HershkowitzMotion to amend: Line 14 from $1200 to $800. MetcalfeThe money that we are paying doesn't include our food for this week either. McCabeThis club pays for all of the activities it does out of pocket, we really shouldn't hassle them over $5 a person. MottI don't have a problem giving them money it just seems wrong to give them the full amount of their budget. HubertSenator Metcalfe said that charging the group an extra 5 or 10 dollars wouldn't be a problem. Dr. ScharfenbergerIf we reduce the amount of the bill, we should have a reasonable explanation of doing so, and right now we don't. Also, the budget is a lump sum of money and we are not able to tell them how to spend it so if they want to use it all up on this, that is fine. MottAround budget time, they decided to give them $1200 it seems strange to give them the whole amount again. Director SmithHow long have you known about the trip and when are deposits due? MetcalfeThere is a meeting tonight and tomorrow to finalize things and deposits are also due then. HubertThey could easily go somewhere closer and cheaper. Dugandzic1 think that asking a little more from each person would be a good idea, because it would make a big difference on the amount we give you.

VI. vn. Call to Order: 6:04 PM Roll Call: Swennson, McCabe, Coleman, Farrell, Mott, Lamphere, Durgin, Ward, Beal, Dugandzic, Mapes, Hubert, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall Approval of Minutes Motion to approve the minutesDugandzic, 2"* McCabe Approval of Agenda Motion to approve the agendaMcCabe, 2"d Coleman Public Comment Men's Rugby We are going to show you again our expenses for next year as we did last week. We have a picture of our scrum machine and it is still in working conditions and will be for a few more years. The game is very expensive because we want to ensure the safety of the players with good equipment. SwenssonSo are you looking for someone to weld the current scrum machine? 0 Rugby PresidentYes, but if we don't find someone it will still hold up fine. SwenssonAre you doing fundraising in the spring? Rugby PresidentYes we are having the Greased Weasel tournament as our fundraiser. Crew Club Thank you for supporting us this season, our bill is coming up tonight and we ask you to please consider it. Guests of the Senate Dr. Richard Hughes, Director of Campus Life Refer to handout. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland I would like to introduce you to Candice LaRue who is running for Supreme Court Justice. We are looking for a new one because Sarah Blood is graduating. She is a public justice major. (Floor goes to Candice) I think that this sounds like a very interesting position and I think that I am qualified to do it. HershkowitzWhy do you think that you would be qualified? CandiceWhen I came to this campus my goals were to do well in school and to continue working but I think I could do this position as well because I am open minded, I wouldn't jump to conclusions and I would do the job to the best of my ability. Vote on appointment: 16-1-0, Candice is the new Supreme Court Justice. Last week was college council and there is a lot coming up next semester. I will have to do a referendum again. I also want to say that I am disappointed in the Senate because of the vote on the new SA logo. You had many of opportunities to come and talk to me about it and you didn't. DugandzicI didn't know that there were so many options of a new logo. Maybe they could have gone into a newsletter. McCabeWas the design that we saw last week final?

PAGE 47

President SutherlandWell no it wasn't final but it was what Andy and I had been working with and we wanted your input, but no one said anything to me so I felt that it was final. DugandzicCan you send out an e-mail with all of the choices? MottWhen we talked about it we thought that maybe having people draw a new logo and have a competition would work. RobinsonWe weren't attacking your idea we just thought that we should have more campus involvement on the decision. President SutherlandWe had a lot of ideas and we had thought about asking the campus. KinnearI think that the one being decided on doesn't grab enough attention, I agree that we should have come to you earlier though. MapesCould we get examples of other logos and then take them to hall councils then come back to you with those decisions? President SutherlandI want to get the logo decided as soon as possible because I want to plaster the campus over winter break. Please get back to me soon! Vice President, Kristin Beck I think that the main problem is that there weren't any other examples brought to senate, only the one option that you had pretty much decided on. I think that bringing other people into the creation would give us more diversity but the problem is a time constraint. I don't think that this is tearing us apart. The senate is showing that they want to work with the President to make a decision. Everyone have a good holiday and end of the semester! Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Last week we did the budget process for direct assembly, only 9 out of 30 groups came so I will be doing another one in February. I met with Auxiliary Services and I will be sending out a budget report through e-mail. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols Thank you Nancy for coming to Direct Assembly. I am currently working with the Chemistry department, Delta Sig, and the Women's Center on doing date rape awareness. For the video project, money is getting transferred and the videos are being made. Student Organization of the Month face plates are now all up to date. Director of Public RelationsAndy Drogo In the beginning of the semester I outlined what I wanted to do which was mainly student involvement. I want to change the logo, colors, everything. The reason that we did this internally was because we didn't get any interest from outside. The logo is the first step and then I will work from there. I need to have this done this semester or it is going to end up being a wasted semester for me. I want you to trust President Sutherland's and mine decision-making. Last week there were no comments at the meeting and it is just now coming up. We could have given you reasons and explanations if you had come to see us in the office. DugandzicThis is the most information that we have gotten about it all semester. Director DrogoI have talked about it a few different times that I have been up here I just don't want to bore you with a report every week if there isn't much to say. KinnearI don't think that the resolution was meant to be an attack on the e-board. Director DrogoPersonally, it more offended me that you couldn't come back to me with opinions. I want there to be more under the table communication. KinnearYou are dealing with something that affects SA as a whole so more people should be involved in the decision. Director DrogoI didn't want the process to be bogged down my bringing it to Senate every week. There were no guidelines to my job, President Sutherland and I created my position with no one to look back on. DugandzicWhat is your timeline, what are you going to get out by the end of the semester?

PAGE 48

Director DrogoWe want to get posters, letter heads, business cards, SA descriptive pamphlets. That is why the logo is so urgent. It already took us this long to get it past 8 people. RobinsonI know that it is a new position but I think that early on we could have seen options before it got way into the decision process. MottI understand that you had this timeline but this is something that could take a year instead of just one semester. Director DrogoPlease don't bring any of this down on President Sutherland, he is just supporting me on the issue. HubertWhat are you going to do now that this is going on? Director DrogoI assume that President Sutherland and I are going to discuss it and see what we think we should do. WestfallThis may be the time the talk about it if you want a decision made before break. McCabeThis sounds like a roll for the involvement committee. Director DrogoI approached them in the beginning of the semester and it basically fell through all together. HershkowitzWe aren't part of the e-board but I think that this should have been addressed earlier, something this important should involve the senate. If we address the e-board as a whole it will be more effective than if we go to you as individuals KinnearAt some point this week can we set up a meeting with involvement committee, senators, and e-board? President SutherlandHow about Thursday at 6PM for a meeting? FarrellI think that we should move on and discuss it later. VIII. Senator Issues Forum McCabeThis is my last meeting because next semester I will be unable to be senator. There are a lot of people here who don't know what goes on on this campus. They don't know what organizations do. The new campus center gives us better opportunities to promote SA. I think that Kevin's appointment of a director of public relations is a step in the right direction. I wish everyone luck on moving forward in these issues. LamphereTomorrow in the Union at 2 there will be the off campus forum in room 212. FarrellTonight you will get the constitutional changes in a packet. Check your mailboxes Friday afternoon. Please review these things over winter break. MapesThanks for coming to Senate dinner this semester please try to attend next semester. WesfallI'm bothered by the issue of CCRT and I question the usefulness of the group because it has not been effective. Maybe we should talk to the mayor. Motion to closeRobinson, 2nd Dugandzic IX. Committee Reports Polic~: We met last Thursday and agreed on the Constitution. We are looking to get with involvement committee on the constitution issues as well. We will meet this Thursday at 7. Procedure: We will have to submit changes to the bi-laws next semester. We are looking to meet with policy the first week of spring semester. These changes have to be made by February 1 lth. We meet this Thursday at 8. Vice President BeckWe can meet the first Tuesday of the semester but it is not required. Finance: Crew club is recommended with an amendment, organization tier status is recommended with an amendment, Men's Rugby is recommended with an amendment, and we will not be meeting this week. Involvement: Last Thursday there was one person at the meeting, attendance is going to have to increase next semester because we will have many important issues to discuss. We are meeting Thursday at 6 in the SA office. Vice President BeckAttendance at the meetings is very important so please go. Health and Safetv: We're working on a 3'd centro bus to run for the winter. Elections: We have one position open so please consider joining. RobinsonMotion to nominate Senator Bacanskas, 2nd Hubert. Bacanskas accepts and is now a member of Elections committee.

PAGE 49

McCabeI think that it is important to get CCRT moving. The opinion is mixed about our campus from the town people. SA should have some outlet to the city. RobinsonIt isn't that they are against college students. X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.20 Crew Club Coach Payment McCabeCrew Club is very active and they findraise. Communication broke down last year so there was confusion with their budget. They need $500 a semester to pay their coach. HubertMotion to amendStrike lines 11-12 "1000 or. ... a semester". This authorizes $500 for this semester. 2"dMapes HershkowitzWe felt it appropriate to delegate $500 this semester because we don't know what our financial status will be next year. Vote on amendment: 14-0-2, amendment passes DugandzicMotion to vote on the bill, 2nd Ward Vote on bill: 15-0-, legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.21 Organization's Tier Status for 2005-2006 MottMotion to amendStrike line 42 and move to line 23. Add like 59 to 35 and 60 to 36, 2"* Robinson.

New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.25 2004 Student Association Constitutional Revisions and Referendum LanguageRefer to policy and procedure for one week. 2.) RES.40.0 1 Student Association Logo HershkowitzWe were talking about whether or not we like the logo, the majority wasn't happy with it. We wanted to be referenced because it affects the campus so much. This was our way of reaching out as a whole. We were in no way trying to force our opinion. We feel that we should have been confronted earlier for an issue this large. HubertThis is just our way of expressing it to you. MetcalfeI agree with Director Drogo that he did bring it up earlier in the year and it is our fault for not taking more action then. I think that we should trust the opinions of the e-board. President SutherlandI don't think that the Senate should speak as a whole to me, but to the campus. I don't think that a resolution is necessary, I hear your opinions. DugandzicWe should trust our e-board but some form of direction should be implemented. McCabeAre we able to table this? HershkowitzI don't recommend tabling this, someone should just withdraw it. WestfallI agree that there was no discussion last week on the logo. I am personally comfortable with the logo that has been brought to us. Director Drogo and President Sutherland, what would be the effect of delaying the decision of the logo? President SutherlandOur goal was to have this on campus before spring semester. We have the referendum, elections, and so many other things coming up next semester to sell the students. WestfallWe should come to a conclusion by the end of the week so that it is not left up in the air. FarrellIs there a strong need to have this out by the start of the spring semester? Why change something in the middle of an administration? President SutherlandEvery 3 or 4 years it has been changed. We feel that it is time to change the logo again. If you keep putting it off, we may not get to it next semester.

PAGE 50

FarrellIf you are running into problems, why not create a task force for next semester. Make involve as many people as possible. I didn't see that this was brought up any other time in the minutes. President SutherlandWell then that is inefficiency to take the minutes by the minute taker. MapesIs it really a problem to put this off to go to our hall councils? KinnearWe need to get something out. I don't think that the logo chosen does the job that it should at getting SA out to students. Bringing it to hall councils won't make a very big difference. MottAt the beginning and throughout the semester, you were working on this and I don't think that that was an invitation to us to help in the decision making. I don't feel that this new logo is any better or any worse than the current logo. RobinsonIf we are meeting Thursday I don't see why we cant end this and look at the other logos over e-mail. I motion to table this, 2nd Dugandzic. HershkowitzObjection, just withdraw the resolution instead of tabling it. KinnearWithdrawing it is better than tabling. HerskowitzI fail the motion to table, and motion to withdraw. Vote to table resolution: 0-16-1, fails MapesMotion to withdraw, 2nd Dugandzic HubertObjection motion to amend McCabeI think that we have spent enough time on this, I think that any further discussion is irrelevant we should wait and talk on Thursday. HershkowitzI am not totally for withdrawing, we brought up the resolution for a reason. We have checks and balances for a reason. I support getting this done before winter break. President SutherlandWe have discussed this and I have heard your opinions. McCabeMotion to vote on the withdraw, 2"d Dugandzic HershkowitzPoint of order, once it is withdrawn, it is gone. 3.) Res.40.02 Thank you Jen Pufky Vice President ~&kI just wkt to say that Jen has done a great job and impacted this campus greatly. HershkowitzShe has affected the whole campus and has been a great aspect to New York, Oswego, and SUNY Oswego. President Sutherland1 have known Jen since freshmen year and no one deserves this recognition more than she does. RobinsonMotion to pass by acclimation, 2nd McCabe Jen PufkyI love the work that I do and have done, I hope that I can continue that further. Thank you to SA for letting me do these things. Vice President BeckFor our first meeting next semester, we technically do not have to meet until February IS'. However, the day the slate must be posted is February 7~. President SutherlandI would like to call a special session for January 25h. XII.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve minutes: Crocker 2nd Ward IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda: Crocker, 2nd Hershkowitz V. Public Comment NYPIRG We had a really effective fall semester. We got enough food from food drives that will last the needy families in Oswego until April. We had about 20 media hits last semester This semester we are going to be dealing with the Pataki budget proposal. He wants to raise SUNY tuition $500 and increase it a certain amount every incoming year. We feel that public education should be affordable. Our campaign kicks off this semester and we are working to raise awareness on the issue. Also, our hunger and homeless group is helping with tsunami relief. VI. Executive Reports SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck We have 2 new senators joining us this semester. Belser from Funnelle and from Tossas Hart. I need to know the times for this semester's hall council meetings. I suggest that all of the committees meet sometime after this meeting to set up times that everyone can meet. Director of FinanceNancy Smith Tier 3 organizations got letters about their budget requests for next year. February 10' starts the budget process. Grant requests have been sent out and we are waiting on those. Budget council begins Feb 12"-13' and will also be held on Feb 19'-20'. 40 organizations will be coming to us with their budget proposals. I strongly recommend that they use powerpoint for their presentations, it looks better. I will be at direct assembly February 3rd to speak about the budget process. An update for the senate accounts: There have been 9 legislations passed. In 6501 there is $33375.52, 6502 has $5169.66,6503 has $0, 6505 has $2008.1 1, and I will e-mail you about 6506. Over winter break I was doing a flow chart for internal control guidelines. We have set up new reimbursement forms for organizations to follow if they need reimbursement. I want to do fundraising for tsunami relief and I am hoping to get ideas and support from organizations. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston I am and have been one of the few student voices for students with disabilities. 1 was unable to attend senate last semester due to a class conflict but I will be able to come this semester.

PAGE 53

This semester I want to define my role for other people so that this job can be filled when I leave. I am the only director to give homework and quizzes, but I am going to be bringing them back this semester. Does anyone want to talk about the kind of work I give? 0 HershkowitzThey are either small research things or quizzes. I think it's good because it catches you off guard. Dan does a good job at getting across what he is trying to do. RobinsonYou really learn things by doing the work Dan gives you. If you want to, it would help out my goal if you give them to your hall councils. My office hours are not posted yet, but they will be this week. SA PresidentKevin Sutherland: Report given by Andrew Drogo Kevin wanted to update you on last semesters work. We got 8 organizations back up to Tier 3 who were previously dropped and one more has reached Tier 3 status. We worked on moving the Student Organization elections to the beginning of the spring. We worked on the SA logo and image as a whole. We got the Ontarian back up and running and we have sold many copies. This semester, we want to work on financial policy updates such as inventory, fundraising, criteria for funding, student employee payroll, travel guidelines, reimbursement approval, and internal control guidelines. We are going to work on getting SAVAC a garage and evaluating their expenses because they want to put a fee into the student's bill. There could be a possible SA fee increase again this year. Working on some sort of transportation made available to organizations for events. We want to build a cash reserve and evaluate the budget process. We have been working on and posting fliers for the spring break trip to Panama City. Wanted to let everyone know that Supreme Court is back in the SA office. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo I am working on getting more computers in the SA office, possibly getting some donated to us from a website that I found. I want there to be night hours that the office is open so that it is available to organizations and so that people can reach us if they can't see us during the day. As of now, organizations have access to 3 computers and a printer without charge. The new SA logo process was delayed a bit, but it is underway and we got it painted on the wall of the office. We have ordered posters, letter heads, business cards, etc. with the new logo and they will be here soon to start promotion. A lot of people on this campus don't feel involved and it is our goal to get them involved. MI. Senator Issues Forum Senator MottI am working on a bill for the Oswegonian to improve their paper. They want to be able to print in color and they are looking to get a contract with the Palladium Times. They are in need of a new computer as well. I hope that another senator will cosign the bill with me. Senator MapesElections are coming up and if you are interested in running you can pick up an application in the SA office, they are due on the 7" by 5PM. Motion to close: Farrell, 2nd Ward VIII. Committee Reports Policy: We met before break and we talked about what we were going to do after the Constitution .. is done. We want to get a booth in the union and work together with WTOP, WNYO, and the Oswegonian. Our meetings for this semester will be determined soon. Procedure: We discussed senate changes to the Constitution. There will be no meeting this week. Finance: I have had 2 organizations come to me with bills already so if there is any senator that wants to take charge of those, that would be fine. Involvement: There is no meeting this week. Kinnear nominated Tossas for Involvement, 2nd 4 Robinson. Tossas accepts and is now on Involvement committee. Health and Safetv: There is no meeting this week; I'd like to meet tonight after the meeting to set up a time.

PAGE 54

Elections: Last meeting we reviewed the election law. Please meet after this meeting briefly. CCRT: I have called them; if they don't get back to me I will keep trying. 0 Hershkowitz nominates Belser for Finance committee, 2"d Robinson. Belser accepts. IX. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.25 2004 Student Association Constitutional Revisions and Referendum Language Farrell: You have been given one copy with strike-throughs, one clean copy, and a copy of the Constitutional Revisions. This year's referendum is going to be online. Scharfenberger: In Article I it should say Student Association Incorporated at the State University of New York at Oswego. Mapes: In Article I1 it should say "who have paid the Student Association Activity Fee" Scharfenberger: I actually think it should say "who have paid the Student Activity Fee" Scharfenberger" In Article V, does it mean concurrently when it says that no Student Association member can hold elected or appointed office in more than one branch of the government at a time? Changed to "no Student Association member shall hold elected or appointed office in more than one branch of the government at one time ..." Hershkowitz: We are adding the at large senator, we will write specifics on this in the by-laws. There are always more people on campus that want to get involved in senate that are unable to, with the change, it will give more people a chance to get involved. Westfall: A faculty assembly member isn't mentioned in Article VI, Section 11. There could be up to three seats filled by faculty assembly members. Also, our role is not mentioned and could create a problem later on. Add "Also Faculty representatives shall participate in the Senate" to Article VI, Section Scharfenberger: I think that the faculty position description should be described in a different section or in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: In Article VI Section 111, the last sentence is confusing. No one will be denied representation, so using population could be confusing. Hershkowitz: We could change it to "All Activity Fee paying students." Hubert: Could we use "student population as a whole"? Farrell: It doesn't clearly state what student population. We should put in "no fee paying student". That shows that everyone who pays the fee will be represented. Hubert: Does legislation mean referendums and resolutions? Hershkowitz: Resolutions are labeled differently. Mott: Could we split this process between two meetings so we aren't here for a long time tonight? Vice President Beck: We will take a vote after we finish this article. Hubert: If 213 of the residents need to vote out a senator, but only 113 decide to vote, a senator could not be removed. Hershkowitz: On campus senators must have % of the constituents petition for a senator recall. 213 of the constituents must vote to remove them. President Sutherland: couldn't you invalidate the constitution if the referendum were to fail Farrell: I think that ifwe lost a referendum, invalidating the constitution would be the last problem we would want to deal with. Mott: I think that there is confusion with the off-campus members and needing 213 of the voting population. Hershkowitz: This is something that we will clear up in the by-laws. Farrell: It will be easier to amend if we have it in the by-laws. Hershkowitz: Motion to recess, and come back to finish tonight. 2nd Mapes. Crocker: Motion to re-refer for one week, 2"d Mott

PAGE 55

Robinson: I just want to say that after tonight there are two Tuesdays until the slate is posted. I want to get it done as soon as possible. We have the meeting now to get it done. Vote to re-refer: 12-6-1, not 213 vote Break begins at 8:05 Back to Order: 8: 18 Scharfenberger: In Article IX, it doesn't say anything about the appointment of the Civil Officers. Hershkowitz: That will go in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: You could change officers to directors. 0 President Sutherland: Going back to Article VII, Section 111, you should add a number 5 and include the executive management of the Student Association Services. Scharfenberger: In Article VIII, Section 11, it implies that you can increase the number of members in the court at any time. Westfall: You could put specifics about that in the by-laws. Scharfenberger: In Article VIII, Section IV, add a #7, Hershkowitz: In Article XIX, it says something about "religious artifacts and materials". What if JSU for example wanted Torahs or something educational? Scharfenberger: You could just strike the section because they can buy religions materials if they are used for educational, social, or intellectual issues. Hershkowitz: The funding requirements are OK until Section IV at the tier status. We should drop section IV a, b, and c. It is OK if we leave the funding, Scharfenberger: Section 5,6,7, and 8 are not constitutional but are policy. Hershkowitz: We can strike 5,6, and 7 because this is already in the financial policy. Vote on Legislation: 13-0-1 Legislation passes. X. Roll Call: Swensson, Belser, Tossas, Bacanskas, Farrell, Durgin, Ward, Beal, Mapes, Hubert, Kinnear, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall XI.

Last year we took 8 people and this year we are able to take 12. We were a Tier 2 this year so we saved $500 of that specifically for this conference. However, we still need about $900 more. This trip is going to be about $130 per person and that will cover the conference, breakfast, lodging, etc. It is a huge impact for us to go to this conference. We learn a lot from other schools and learn how we can improve here. RobinsonAre the individuals going expecting to pay any money on their own? Meteorology Rep.Yes they will pay about $30 a piece. RobinsonHow many people are there in your club? Meteorology Rep.There are about 30 now. WestfallWhat does the $900 cover? Meteorology Rep.That will cover food, travel, lodging, gas, etc. Habitat for Humanity This year we are taking the 5" annual trip to the Alternative Spring Break and we are going to Baltimore MD. When we are there we are going to be helping with the production of houses. Students that are interested apply by application and this year we had 25 spaces and 25 people applied. We are asking for $2000 for the cost of the trip. That would cover transportation, gas, food, housing, etc. We are doing fundraising this semester such as the bowl-a-thon and bake sale. Each student going on the trip is asked to pay $100. We have people from all grade levels and from many different organizations going on this trip. We are sure to promote SUNY Oswego on our trip as well. BelserDoes the National Habitat group help you pay? HM repNo, because we are so small we don't get any money. HershkowitzHave you worked with any organizations to see if they would help you fund the trip as well? HM repNo we haven't. ~ubertHow was the site for the trip chosen?

PAGE 58

HtH repWe chose it because they had room for us to bring 25 people and that's about how many seats we were looking for. We almost doubled the amount we took last year. NYPIRG We have started planning for the Student Action meeting which helps us to reach out to the campus. The meeting will be Wednesday, February 9 at 7:OOPM in 105 Lanigan. We have a few student speakers already set up to come to the meeting. We will talk about all of the different groups that we have within NYPIRG such as Campaigns, Elections, Hunger and Homeless. (Speaker switched to a board member) As a representative, I get to vote on the budget. We have a bill tonight about the question of referendum. NYPIRG and SA agreed to the question on the bill already. Please honor the question put into the contract and vote for the bill. Oswegonian We are currently looking to upgrade our computers and software for next year. The Oswegonian is a student run newspaper that produces weekly issues. We have been around since 193 5. Out goals include increasing leadership, getting more interesting stories, printing the front and back in color. We went to the Palladium Times to see if they would be able to work with us on printing in color and they said they would let us do it. Both our hardware and software is old and needs to be replaced. The things that we would need are Quark layout software, Photoshop, Mac Operating System 10, Power Mac G5. We also need to update our graphing capability. Some of our editors are willing to give up their salaries to help pay for these improvements but we are still going to need some money. President SutherlandHave you talked to anyone from graphic design to see if you could get some software from them? Oswegonian EditorThe only problem with that could be software registering. President SutherlandI just suggest that you look into it, it could be a possibility. RobinsonWhat happened to the Senate Report that you used to print? Oswegonian EditorThe person that we put in charge of that either wouldn't go to the meetings or would go and take bad reports so until we can find someone to do it permanently, we could publish the bills that come up for the week. Director SmithYou may need to talk to Cynthia Donovan about your editors' salaries that may not be allowed. There shouldn't be funds used for payroll to buy things for the club. Oswegonian EditorI will set up a meeting to talk to her about that. HubertHow soon do you need to have this money for the computers? Oswegonian EditorWell it is the sooner the better, but we are going to printing in color definitely by the fall. Director DrogoWould your website be updated if you got new software because currently it isn't being updated. Oswegonian EditorWe have problems with the Webmaster and we wanted to get Dream Weaver so that we can update every week. VI. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland I am really glad that we were able to get through the constitution last week, it was important that we got that finished. Last week Director Drogo gave you my report because I had to work and was unable to make it back for the meeting in time but I want to bring some of those issues back to you this week. As for updates to the financial policy, I want to work on inventory, fundraising, criteria for funding, studentlemployee payroll, travel guidelines, reimbursement approval, and internal control guidelines. Next week I will have more updates on the SAVAC issue.

I am looking into getting a CD to purchase a van for student organization transportation. We need to build a reserve. As for account 6501, Dan Tuscarella works at OCNB so he is going to get information on interest rates and things like that. I believe we would have to have $125,000 but then the interest earned could cover things such as minimum wage increases and other issues. My office hours have been posted and most of the other directors have as well. Feel free to stop in and see me or call if you need to talk to me about anything. Vice PresidentKristin Beck I am also really glad that we were able to get through the Constitution; it was a headache last year and I'm glad that we got it done this year. Please include committee meeting times in your committee reports tonight. I would prefer if the candidates in this year's election kept their campaigns outside of the Senate meetings. In the beginning of last semester Senator Mott was elected to be budget council rep and then she was chosen to be chair of finance. These two positions create a conflict so she stepped down from Budget Council Rep and we need to elect someone else. RobinsonI nominate Senator Farrell, 2nd Bacanskas. Crocker: Motion to close, 2nd Belser Director of FinanceNancy Smith Budget council is coming up the weekend of the 12" and 13" and will also be held the 19" and 20". We plan to have it from 9am-4pm and I would like you to look at the financial policy and come to me if you have any concerns or issues. This week I will be presenting at Direct Assembly at 6Pm in 105 Lanigan and I will be talking about the budget procedure. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols There will be Direct Assembly Thursday in 105 Lanigan at 6PM. I will be going to a meeting on Date Rape Awareness; I have been working with many other organizations on this issue. The Movie Project is underway, movies are being purchased and the movies will soon be available in the library. VII. Senator Issues Forum RobinsonThere are some people on my floor that are mad about the rule of "NO snowball fights." Is there a reason for this? o HershkowitzI believe that it has to do with liability, people end up chucking ice and people get hurt. o President SutherlandIt was the actions of a few individuals that have ruined it for everyone. UP will get you in trouble ifthey see you throwing snowballs. CrockerThis month is Black History Month, I would like you to all come celebrate at the events. HershkowitzThis semester is very important so you should really try to stay on top of things and make sure that you go to your committee meetings, do your job as a senator. MottIn regards to the Oswegonian bill, I know that there may be some issues with the payroll and we are getting that figured out but if you have any other questions or concerns with the bill, please feel free to contact me. WestfallI just wanted to congratulate the people who were involved in Laker Days, it went very well and the attendance was great. MetcalfeThis semester I am taking 14 meteorology credits, an internship, and WTOP so I am going to have to resign from being a senator, I just don't have the time. MapesMotion to close, 2nd Coleman. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: We didn't meet last week and this week we are going to be meeting Thursday at 7 and we will be going over the bi-law changes and the Constitution. Procedure: We will be meeting Thursday at 8:30 in the SA office and we will be going over the bi-laws changes and senator rights and responsibilities changes.

Public Comment Racquetball We went to our 31d tournament this weekend and we did better than we have ever done. Oneonta and Binghamton were in the tournament and we lost to Binghamton and won against Oneonta. We just want to keep you updated on how our club is doing. NYPIRG The Student Action Meeting has been moved to Wednesday the 16" at 6PM in 105 Lanigan Hall. We were recently in the paper for our position on the tuition increase. This month is Raise Your Voice Month, we will be participating in many activities along with this including Tsunami relief, open mic, community service, etc. Tonight is our bill for the referendum question, please support us. Executive Report SA PresidentKevin Sutherland I have been doing some number crunching and there will be an increase of our budget in the 2005-2006 year so that will probably mean an increase in the SA fee again. I have found a $30,000 CD for a van that we could potentially use for organization transportation. There are increases in a lot of aspects of our budget such as health insurance, Paychex, Student Services, officer insurance, the Ontarian, and also all of the Tier 3 organizations. If we were to get a van for organizations, the gas would be very expensive so this is still something that we are working on doing. HershkowitzI believe that in years past they have wanted to do this as well and have decided against it because of the cost. Director NicholsI found that it has been thought about but no one decided to do it. Dr. ScharfenbergerSome people tried to get this done about 6 years ago and didn't want to end up with the repair costs like SAVAC does. So the van CD that we found is about $35,000, we could also use this money for SAVAC and their new ambulance that they will need in a few years. At the end of this year, they will have $10,000 saved to go towards the ambulance. A new ambulance costs them about $1 10,000 and they won't want to buy a used one. Director NicholsDo you know what they could get for their current ambulance when they try to sell it? President SutherlandNo, I don't know I have not discussed that with them.

PAGE 63

HershkowitzDo you have any idea how much you are going to have to raise the SA fee? President SutherlandI am not sure how much but I know that there will be an increase. HershkowitzRegarding the Tier 3 organizations, they don't have to go back to the amount that they used to receive. President SutherlandYes, we can save money that way and also there will be about $15,000 going towards the SAVAC garage a year so we have that increase in the budget. Vice PresidentKristin Beck We currently need another member for Elections committee. If you have any questions on the upcoming elections, go to Senator Mapes. I still need information on the new Senators that are coming, I would like to train them all at the same time. HershkowitzA point of information; On the agenda SLE.40.26 is the Oswegonian bill and I have the Metoerology as the same thing. Vice President BeckThe meteorology bill is SLE.40.29. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo I am passing out brochures that have our new logo, these are going to be available to people on campus and the idea is to get across how many organizations we really fund. We are also printing one in full color and that will be going out to incoming freshmen. HershkowitzHow much is it going to cost us to print these in color? Director DrogoI am not sure yet, we will only have to pay for the printing though, not the postage. The posters are also sent out and being made for us. We had a big ad in the Oswegonian. I have met with Involvement committee and we are going to be doing some PR for the elections and putting things on WNYO, WTOP, the Oswegonian, sitting in the Union promoting it with fliers on the 13" and 27". The Oswegonian is going to have themed papers from now until the election. TossasWhat do you want to come from all this advertising? Director DrogoWe just want to increase awareness of SA on the campus. President SutherlandWe have been exempt from doing the referendum this year and we won't have to do it again for 3 years now. HershkowitzCould we update the website and post peoples contact information? Director NicholsCould you also put information about the committee chairs. Director DrogoYes I will get on and update the site. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston I have had a few meetings and I have some ideas for the bookstore. I am hopefully going to meet with Kevin about starting a disability oriented student group. This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Homework is backDirectors are not exempt. If you have done this one before, you still need to do it but come up with a different answer. You must identify one disability and its disadvantages. You can e-mail me, leave me a voicemail, or come by my office hours to tell me what you come up with. These are due by Monday and then next Monday you will have to give me the affects that these disabilities have on higher education. I am still looking for someone interested in taking over my job when I graduate so please let me know if you have anyone that is interested. VII. Senator Issues Forum MapesWe have senate dinner every week and I am disappointed to be there and see many other senators sitting with their friends and not us, you can sit with us and bring your friends! StrumI am going to be dropping one of my committees to join another one. MottThe off campus luncheon is going to be taking place next Wednesday from 1 1 :301 :30 it is a free lunch so if you live off campus come and bring your friends. RobinsonI would just like to say to senator Mapes that we just really don't like her. Motion to close: Mapes, 2"* Belser

la. VIII. Committee Reports Policv: We met on Thursday and went over the bi-law changes and the BYPIRG Referendum question. We will be meeting this Thursday at 7 in the library. Procedure: We went over the rights and responsibilities of at large senators so I will be emailing you about the senator at large position. Things like they have to go to a certain number of hall council meetings. We have the online journal and they can do postings in the Oswegonian, off campus and at large senators will be responsible for those. Our meeting next week will be Thursday at 8PM. Finance: We met last week and went over the bills that were brought to us. For the Oswegonian bill there are going to be several changes because we found out that they are unable to use their editor payroll for the computer upgrades. The Habitat for Humanity bill we agreed to without amendments. We feel that it is for a very good cause, they are giving up their spring break to work and are already paying $100 of their own money. The Meteorology bill we recommend it because we went back to them and found out some more information. The special orders bill for tonight we agree to with amendments. Our meeting will be Thursday at 9PM. Involvement: We are currently working on advertisements for the elections coming up. I (Senator Kinnear) would like to nominate senator Strum for Involvement committee, 2nd Robinson. Health & Safety: We will be meeting next Wednesday at 9: 15 in the SA office. Elections: We met last week to go over the petition process and we met with NYPIRG. We are meeting Wednesday at 8:30. CCRT: I have been in contact with Jen Hill and she is excited to do this, we are definitely playing softball and having a pizza party! The mayor was all for her coordinating it. IX. Special Orders 1.) SLE.40.31 Chinese Culture Club DinnerThey would like to ask for $500 to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This will take place at the Global Buffet and can accommodate about 45 people. I would like to amend the bill and cut the amount down to $250 from $500. The Global Buffet is making a real Chinese dinner so we felt that the people could pay about $1 0 each for their meal. 2ndBelser RobinsonIs this open to anyone? WardI am not sure, it is not specified. MottI think that they reserved a special room in the restaurant. HubertIf they are getting some SA money and they are selling tickets but don't sell enough, do they make up the difference that we didn't give them or do we? President SutherlandWe would be left with it. BelserSo we are left with the rest if they don't sell enough tickets? President SutherlandI don't think that they will have a problem selling out. MottIf we only authorize $250 then aren't they responsible for the rest if they don't sell out? President SutherlandYes you're right, I'm sorry I misunderstood, we would not be liable. HubertThe $250 that we are giving them is that covering the members or are they going to have to pay also? WardThey also have to pay for theirs. Vote on amendment: 15-0-1, amendment passes. Westfall: On line 2 1, I think that inconclusive should be inclusive. Vote on the bill: 141 1, Legislation passes. X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.26 Oswegonian Computer UpgradeAmendment: This bill was going to be partially paid for by the payroll of some editors but they are unable to do that so we have cut the bill down from two towers to one tower and software. The total is now $1737.90 from $1300. We will look into other alternatives for another tower. HubertSo the software that you are going to buy was going to be used for both of the new towers so couldn't they get software from another organization at school?

PAGE 65

MottThere are still liability issues. 2nd to amendment, Hubert Vote on amendment: 15-0-1, amendment passes FarrellHow much is in account 6505? Mott: I have $2008.1 1, that account is a fixed capital account. TossasI am also on the e-board of another organization and I just wanted to ask if the Oswegonian really deserves these computers. My question is, how effectively are they going to use these tools.1 don't think that 6000 students really read the Oswegonian and I think that there should be added requirements before just giving them the money, HershkowitzDo you mean that they should do fundraising because we can't force them to do it. Many organizations don't receive the amount of money that they need but they survive with what they get. This organization has a huge budget and we only give them a fraction of it, they do very well with what they have. MottTheir budget is $4500 and that isn't even near what they need. You said that you want them to step up well that is exactly what they are trying to do byu getting computers. Maybe 6000 people don't read the Oswegonian, but most students have heard of this organization and know what they do compared to many others. TossisI may have worded what I said wrong. What I meant is that we could give them a small project when we give them the money so that there is a new perspective of SA organizations. Vote on bill: 14-0-2, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.27 Money for Habitat for HumanityThis is a bill that comes up every year and they are only a Tier 2 organization. We feel that it is a very worthy cause and that they deserve the whole amount. FarrellHow much is in 6502? Mott$5 169.66 WardI did Habitat for Humanity for 2 years and I always had to pay for all of my expenses. I support this bill. BelserThese students are going to work over spring break and they are already shelling out $100 of their own money. Vote on legislation: 13-0-3 legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.28 NYPIRG Referendum QuestionThis is part of our contract, we need to ask the students if they still want NYPIRG on this campus and want to pay $4 a semester for that. Dr.ScharfenbergerYou should strike the 2nd Whereas on the bill, lines 6 and 7. Director SmithWe currently have a contract with them and they are budgeted, if we charge the $4 it will go over our budget. I think that we need to consider the $4 per student. BelserWe are speaking about the question itself, not about the amount that we pay. 2nd to amendment: Durgin Vote on amendment: 16-0-0, amendment passes. HubertSo if we pass this are we in violation of the contract? Director SmithWe would violate the trustees policy contract and we would go over the budget allocated. FarrellIf we don't ask the question then we are violating the contract with NYPIRG. HershkowitzThe referendum is non-binding so then it is up to NYPIRG. Dr. ScharfenbergerWhat you are proposing is that is how it is stated on the contract. MottPoint of InformationDoes it say in the contract that we have to say $4 per fee paying student? Dr. ScharfenbergerYes, it is in the contract. HubertWe can put anything we want in this if its not a legal contract and Dr. Scharfenberger says it should be as specific as possible. FarrellIf we keep it as is, are we in violation of the SUNY Board of Trustees policy? Dr ScharfenbergerJust try to make sure that you fulfill a commitment. HershkowitzAmend Line 2 put in "following advisory" 2"* to amendment: Robinson

PAGE 66

Vote on amendment: 16-0-0, amendment passes. d President HershkowitzContract issues should be dealt with by NYPIRG President an1 Sutherland. Vote on the bill: 16-0-0 legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.29 Meteorology Club ConferenceThey are asking $900 to go on a conference March 18-20. I believe they are going to use money in their account to pay $35 for 12 members. That should come up to about $1400 total. SwenssonDo they do any fundraising? WardThey gave me no indication that they have. SwenssonThey are basically asking for the money that we didn't give them in the fall. Director SmithThey didn't do any fundraising. They have $948 left in their account fiom the last bill. TossisIt looks like they are trying to get us to pay for the whole event. Each person will be paying $35 it doesn't seem right. MottWhat did we give them money for last semester? Director SmithWhatever their budget request was, their account went up to $1 100 MottIt was my understanding that they are using $500 fiom their account for this conference. HubertLast semester they said that they wanted to improve their labs did they do that? WardCould I check my e-mail to be sure of the information? Vice President BeckYes you can go check it now. RobinsonDo they need this money now or can we re-refer it? WardI don't know when they need the money by for the conference. MottIn finance we voted to re-refer this bill so since there are still unanswered questions, I motion to re-refer this for a week to finance committee. 2nd Robinson. XI.

He will be in Rochester the weekend that the training camp will be at RIT. o Hubert: Do all players agree on the people that were chosen to go? o President: Yes o Swift: Is certification binding? o President: Certification is for life, until level 2 certification, which is not required. We host the Greased Weasel tournament on 2 fields, designated for men's and women's rugby. The others have outdated goalposts, and one is down and one is in rough shape. We can work with the one in rough shape, the one that is down needs to be replaced. I was informed that we are not allowed to construct our own wooden uprights. The permanent structures cost around $2000 which is too much even if we had that money. I have decided to use PVC piping for goalposts and use steel ground sleeves with caps so they are not permanent and can be removed for any other organizations. Regardless, these will last at least 10 years and might as well be permanent. They are easily stored and cheaper, at $630. I am working on getting them stored in Lee Hall; otherwise I can leave them out where they have surplus construction equipment, but Lee hall is favorable. o Strum: When is greased weasel? o Pres: April 16 o Director Smith: How many teams will be there? o Pres: I have heard from 5 men's teams, we have a new team from a boy's academy outside of Watertown who will be attending. There is a former Oswego alumni from class of 83 who is coaching a women's team in Maryland who would like to attend, so 6 teams total. A decent turnout is expected. BSU, Raquel Crocker Good afternoon, I am the director of the archives of the BSU. Friday we had a date auction, raised 288 dollars for tsunami relief. This month is Black History month, this week Sister to Sister week, a guest speaker from a grant from the Women's center will be here to talk about diabetes. This Saturday we are holding an event with the Muslim Student Association. The speaker will talk about racism, it's very important to unite and do things together. February 26 is our annual Black History Dinner at 5:OOpm. VI. Guests of the Senate: Dr. Joseph Grant, Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management: I appreciate opportunity to speak with you, what I circulated are documents dealing with budget increase. Tomorrow at 3:30pm in 101 Lanigan, the SUNY Chancellor will be here to present the budget and answer questions. This is a great opportunity for Oswego students to attend and ask him questions. Tonight I will give an overview of the Chancellor's issues Budget clarities: 84.3 million for mandatory salary increases negotiated by State of New York. There are also utility increases, inflation increases, and computer support and equipment increases. There will be a $500 tuition increase for everyone at the university. This is an unwelcome change but the money comes from either from the students or the state.

PAGE 71

When people say, "Well we don't want a tuition increase", what you need to do is get money from the state, which is difficult. Welfare, roads and bridges, all these things give New York State a $6 billion Budget, with a $5 million surplus for this year, and for next year there is a $6 billion deficit, where will this $ come from? The real issue is, why do we need a tuition increase? New York State can't come up with the money for salaries and utilities, among other increases. Community college based aid is going up, but that is not an issue for this campus The budget restores $7.3 million in EOP, which is for financially disadvantaged students. This is a $16 million dollar program. The Governor's budget cuts half of it, and we want to get that back into the university. Funding the new Campus Center is like getting a mortgage for your house The Chancellor is proposing a guarantee program, when you come in as a new student in SUNY for 4 years you pay the same price for tuition. Similar to the Oswego guarantee program for room and board. Last year there was a $950 increase in tuition. The logic is that small incremental increases over time would be better, is there any guarantee that this will work? No, and this is something worth talking about. The State supports the partnership to accelerate completion time so that people will graduate on time Tuition assistance programthere are $1 68 million cuts in for this. Governor wants to cut it in half. The new plan is to only give students half of what they should receive during the time they are in school, and give them the other half upon graduating. Finally, there is an academic scholars matching incentivewe have presidential and merit scholarships here, this proposal would help Oswego with that. o Robinson: For the SUNY Tuition Guarantee Program, how does this work and what does it guarantee? o Dr. Grant: If you come in at $4,500 for tuition, you pay that for 4 years and in a 9' semester you would have to pay more. o Swift With incremental raises, this doesn't necessarily guarantee against a potentially large increase like we have seen in the past or for the coming year, correct? o Dr. Grant: No, there is no guarantee. It is being negotiated that the state of New York would have no more cuts during that period of time. Until then, there is no guarantee. For the tuition for next year, it is being proposed that it will increase $500 unless they can come up with the $83.4 million. They want to give money to elementary and secondary education, roads and bridges, Medicare and Medicaid, so will there be enough left over for SUNY? We want to get as much state funding as possible, while maintaining quality. o Audience member: Assuming we cannot get the $84 million, $500 extra will just come from incoming freshmen? o Dr. Grant: The fall of '06 would have a fixed amount with increase. Same with '05, new students pay some increment above that. It has been running at 3 or 4 percent increase each year, only for incoming classes. o Farrell: It seems like $84 million is only issue, are there any other options? o Dr. Grant: One third of students get full TAP, and another third receive some amount of TAP. So it is a big deal. Only other sources are state revenues and tuition, so what we hope legislature would do is come up with $40 million instead of $80million; then the increase would only have to be half as much. o Director Drogo: I am concerned about the fact that there are students lobbying now for their own cause, but there is no one to speak for high school students and incoming freshmen. o Dr. Grant: The increase would only be at price index, only at 3 or 4 percent

PAGE 72

o Raquel Crocker: With the proposed plan for TAP, what happens to the money if you don't graduate because of financial reasons? o Dr. Grant: Iif you don't graduate, you would get half the money from the state and borrow the other half and then you would have that loan, or you could have the college pay it for you and we would have to come up with other half, and if you didn't graduate the college wouldn't get it back. So either you or the college wouldn't get the other half. o Hubert: For the TAP, I understand it would help the budget this year, but a couple years down the road when they have to pay back what hasn't been paid wont that create the same problem? o Dr. Grant: Everybody would be in that spot, so if we keep pushing it off, yes you would have to get $ back in 4 years, the new students will get money the deferred, and so on so the issue keeps getting deferred. It is a 4-year cycle of deferment. o Audience member: If money is such a huge problem, have they looked into not spending money on new buildings, or freezes in administrative salaries? o Dr. Grant: citizens will spend a lot of money. Freezing salaries all together, we don't negotiate salaries locally, unions UUP negotiate salaries, we are committed to paying those salary increases. About $1.4 million a year makes up the increases, in recent years we were given no money and it was absorbed by the budget. This really doesn't make up a lot of our money, so it's not a huge concern. o Hershkowitz: How much money are SUNY schools getting to increase programs and pay salaries and stuff, how much money are we getting for increasing programming? o Dr. Grant: None, its all for other stuff. Also, some of the money gets sent out to other campuses, leaving hardly any left over. o Ward: If this budget passes, would it increase Oswego's operating budget? o Dr. Grant: That $84 million represents the operating cost of all SUNY campuses, and ours is a fraction of that. Thank you I appreciate time, I urge you to go listen to the chancellor tomorrow VII. Executive Report Director Drogo presented for President Sutherland Kevin's grandma passed away so he is in Syracuse, we would like to send him flowers or something on behalf of the senate and E-board. Kevin did budget council last weekend, Kristin Ian and Nancy can be asked questions about that. Kevin wants to go around to committees to talk about moving money from stagnant organizations and moving to it an executive account instead of having it just sit there, he will be going to Finance Committee and some others, and he wants a bill transferring this money by next week. Vice PresidentKristin Beck We are missing clerk tonight, thank you to Erica and Kelly. Budget council was this last weekend, and this coming weekend, it is going well so far. We have seen about 20 organizations. President Sutherland will not be there Saturday, so I will step up as President and Senator Hershkowitz will be Vice President. Introduced three new Senators, McTiernan from Cayuga, Swift Off Campus, and Chadaev from Seneca Director of FinanceNancy Smith This weekend was first session of BC, went well, still have 18 organizations to go on Saturday and Sunday. There were 5 who did not turn in their budgets last Thursday as I mentioned in the email. Two organizations were here earlier and were approved by Senate, but there are 3 others that should have been here and have not responded, I ask the Senate to vote down acceptance of late budgets for COPE, Outing Club, and Del Sarte

PAGE 73

Dr. ScharfenbergerWhy are we doing this differently? Vice President BeckThere was nothing written in the Financial Policy on how we should handle this situation, and Director Smith recommended this procedure. Hershkowitz-T will be allocated $0, because they should have been here. Budget Council came up with a way to try and get the organizations the money, what I think will happen with this procedural vote, is that it will be non binding, there will be a 0 in the book for their accounts. Dr. ScharfenbergerI assume that if there is no budget there will be a 0. NancyIf they have no money they will have to come to senate, should they be dropped to tier 2? Yes, but that is not in the Financial Policy. Hershkowitz-Either they will receive no money or be budgeted based on last year's request. It is up to Budget Council, they can allocate whatever they want Vice President BeckIf their budgets are not accepted tonight, they go to $O? Director SmithYes Vice President BeckIf they are accepted, they can go to Budget Council to work something out. Director SmithUltimately Senate can say what we feel they deserve; we could continue funding, or give them 0, and have them come ask for money every time they need it. Vice President BeckSo then before Budget Council finishes, if the budgets are accepted Budget Council will give them the money they feel is necessary. Director NicholsHow did COPE and Del Sarte become part of the Tier 3 process without submitting a budget? Director SmithThey turned in a charter. MottWe don't really need a vote, Budget Council will do what they feel is best, and it will go on to finance committee. Director LyonThey get bumped down to Tier 2 for the Fall, and then they can submit a budget and fundraise and get more money in the spring. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston Hi guys. A couple things ... Director Drogo, President Sutherland, and I have worked hard on putting together a forum for students and faculty interested in disability issues on campus. To determine whether or not there is a group getting started, on March 3"' at 6pm in the Formal Lounge there will be a meeting. Andy's signs will be up everywhere. There are two possible dates for a wheelchair basketball game. This is usually a really good time. Still looking for someone who is interested in taking over my job for the upcoming year With regard to the homework, I haven't heard from the majority of you, including about 10 senators and none of directors. New senators, I give out homework, and Vice President Beck will be handing out assignment that I gave to the senators last week. Give me an idea sometime this week and be ready for a presentation next week. o StrumWhat do you want from our research? o Director PrestonHow the disability you have chosen would impact academic life and succeeding in a college setting. o ChadaevDo we need to prepare an oral presentation? o DanIf you write it down that's great, a presentation is not required. Keep an eye out for the posters! Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols I was asked to inform everyone about a benefit for the tsunami relief, and I have decided on a bowling party in early April time. I put some numbers together, thanks to Liz, showing van rentals by student organizations for the past 3 semesters. This information should be presented by Kevin next week.

PAGE 74

Direct Assembly on the 24', topic is set as the involvement awards. This is coordinated out of the SOS office o HershkowitzAre we going to have a Spring Involvement Fair? o Director NicholsI don't have anything planned. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo Last week's material on the new SA posters was a first draft, so if you see problems, let me know before I spread them all over campus. I have other things to present. (poster presentation) Wilbur printed these, they were $1 each. Hopefully you have seen these around, we photocopied them and posted them. There is a brochure that should be printed, which will go out in admissions packets to inform freshman about SA early, same info that is in the current bi-fold, but now it is on much nicer looking on cardstock. These will be the size of a poster and should cost $2 each. We also have business cards and letterhead, Heather has been working on this with me. o HershkowitzYou have been doing a great job; you have done so much work and the senate appreciates it, and I appreciate it. Keep up the good work. This is just amazing, if we continue on this path SA will be more visible, so thank you Director DrogoI have been doing all of this without a budget. Could we consider a compensation for Heather McBride for drafting our new logo? o HershkowitzI think we should update our presentation board for the information fairs with the new logos, can you update that? o Director DrogoYes, I'll work on that. Director DrogoTake a flier VIII. Senator Issues Forum MottRegarding the Senate Report in The Oswegonian, I talked to them and they decided if they couldn't get someone to come here they could put a summary of each meeting's bills in each issue. I have been giving them a list. I was thinking that Vice President Beck could send them the bills. o Vice President BeckI could send them the email that I send out to the senate-list on Monday nights. o HershkowitzI yield my time to Director Drogo o Director DrogoI would like to offer my services to The Oswegonian as the Director of Public Relations, please give me contact info. HershkowitzThanks to Director Lyon and Senator Durgin for taking the minutes this week. FarrellBudget Council has been a great experience so far and I'm looking forward to this weekend. RobinsonThe new senators should introduce themselves, and should tell us their favorite baseball team, political party, etc. o HershkowitzI concur o Senator Chadaev from Senecafrom Brooklyn, second semester freshman, political science and theology major, excited to be here, looking forward to attending every meeting. Favorite movie is The Godfather. I'm open minded when it comes to music ... country, hip hop, rock, anything. o Senator McTiernan from CayugaFavorite band is rufus, favorite color is red, is a political science major, o Senator Swift, Off Campus SenatorFavorite color is black, political science major. Motion to close: Farrel, 2nd Mapes IX. Committee Reports Policy We are meeting this Thursday at 7pm in the Library cafe Senator Hershkowitz nominated McTiernan to Policy, 2nd Robinson

PAGE 75

Procedure: We didn't meet last week because I wasn't feeling well. We need to come up with an idea for At Large Senators to communicate to their constituents Senator Robinson nominated Chadaev to Procedure, 2nd by Hershkowitz Finance: We were unsure about what to do with the Meteorology Club bill, will be submitting amendment to reduce it. The men's rugby bill is OK, we recommend as is. SAPB bill is recommended as is. The bill under New Legislation which will transfer $5000 from 6501 to 6502 is important. We are meeting Thursday at 9pm. Senator Belser nominated Swift to Finance, 2nd Robinson Involvement: Director Drogo met with us last week, we painted a banner for the elections. We need to put an ad in the Oswegonian. We are meeting this Wednesday at 9pm in the SA office. Health & Safety: We are meeting this Wednesday at 9: 15pm. Elections: We met with candidates to go over election law. We are meeting at 8:30pm tomorrow. Senator Robinson nominated: Belser to Elections, 2nd Strum CCRT: We are planning an exchange day for this semester. X. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.32 MSA, SJC, and BSU Black History Month Speaker Series MottMotion to amend amount to $950 to cover the cost of refreshments. They are asking for money for food during the event as a thank you to the people attending from NYC. Vote on amendment: 4-1 3-1, amendment fails. HershkowitzMotion to amend to add on line 15 "To be controlled by MSA for their speaker. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes HubertHave you done any fundraising? President of Social Justice ClubYes, we are paying for his travel up here and they have been helped out a little by some groups in NYC. Some students and groups who will be attending, they have done as much as they could to raise $ Huberta bunch of people are coming up from NYC, and we are paying for them to see him, can they pay for something? President of SJCThey helped with the cost of transportation. HubertWhy does this speaker cost so much? President of SJCBecause he is a prominent, popular speaker HubertIf that is so, why were we unable to find much information on him, and why weren't we given a resume? President of SJCHe does not go by the name given to him, he uses name "Abu Yousef' commonly. BelserIn regards to his name, I know in the Islamic faith, similar to Judaism, there will be a given name, I have a judaic name that I do not go by, it doesn't mean a different person, it's not a big deal. RobinsonI really do want to see this, but it is problem for me to vote yes for that amount of money. Senator Mott tried to do a lot of research and found nothing, so it's hard for me to vote yes. It's unfortunate they aren't here, I think there are a lot of questions right now. ChadevI concur with Senator Robinson, they will say valuable things at this event and I look forward to going. I hope it will be very very interesting. The money is worth spending on this.

PAGE 76

LamphereI want to make sure I understand, the $800 is for the speaker only, and you want that money from senate. The transportation was paid by people from NYC? President of SJCNo, MSA paid for transportation. LamphereSo what did the city people pay for? President of SJCthey advertised and spread the word down in the city. Most of the funding, aside form the price of speaker, came form MSA. So basically I can see where you got confused, what I tried to say is there is a lot of outside support for this person to come here to speak because they want to further educate the state where we have very little connection with the MuslimIArablanti-racial community. LamphereSo it wasn't outside financial support, just moral support President of SJCRight, they spread the word. BacanskasHow is he traveling here? President of SJCI don't know. BacanskasMy biggest problem is that it is not that expensive to stay here overnight and come from NYC. It seems like the majority of who you are expecting seems to be from NYC. I have a problem giving $800 to outside people that are coming for free and not contributing to our funds. StrumMy question is that if there are other clubs involved, are they helping wl funding? Why is it all on MSA? President of SJCWell I know that the Social Justice Club just helped the MSA last week, and the BSU signed on to help as well. MottSJC was not part of this bill, I approached them because we wanted this to be a joint organizational bill so it could come from that account, the never had any intention to financially support this. HubertHow many people are you expecting to attend? President of SJCI don't know, a guess is 100. HershkowitzThe turnout should be high. HubertCould we ask a dollar donation to defer some of the cost? President of SJCI'm not sure, from the bills that I have seen it seems like a lot of money is going to a lot of organizations that don't offer to the college community what groups like BSU or SJC or JSU or MSA would offer; these are groups that are really interested in educating the campus. HubertMany organizations are created to educate the campus, rugby and other clubs are different President of SJCEducation is important, other ideas and beliefs are really really important BelserI think this is going to be a real positive event if this happens. Getting 10 people out to an event is an amazing thing; to say that we're going to bring 100 or 150 people out to this event, I think that's a really positive thing. 1 hope everyone will consider voting for this bill. I want to thank Senator Mott for her time and research on this bill. ChadaevAre those people able to financially able to provide some assistance from NYC? President of SJCPeople that I know of are coming up as individuals, we're not having like a whole group come together. I really can't answer in depth whether or not they can provide any financial support.

PAGE 77

ChadaevThe best course of action is to have those who are not from Oswego pay 1 or 2 dollars HershkowitzWe hold events all the time where members of the community and surrounding areas attend. I don't forsee huge amounts of people from NYC, its only the better that they can come be a part of this. I know that SJC is cashed out and they started charging ad space in their Get Free Times, so I don't think they have the $ to help subsidize this event. Neither does the bsu, I think we should vote for it, we are nitpicking this too much, this is just the way it's going to be and I'm really in favor of it, so I request the chair to take a vote. SwennsonI want to point out to the Senate that the bill hasn't gone to hall councils, we don't know anything about the speaker, it's a lot of money, the MSA president is not here to speak, and these are all important questions. Vote on the bill: 12-5-2, Legislation passes. XI. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.29 Meteorology Club Conference WardSorry for not bringing breakdown last time. This is what I received from their President in regards to how the money would be split up for registration, night lodging, breakfast, banquet, gas, and number of students attending, including amount that each student would have to pay to offset those costs. In finance committee, everyone came to the consensus that the bill amount should be amended to $750. They were budgeted $500 for conferences, which leaves $448. They need a new TV because their old one is very archaic, and $300 is going towards shirts as fundraising. The remainder of their money should go to trip to Tug Hill to study lake effect snow patterns. The fundraising that they are going to do with the t-shirts will go towards a trip that they will plan later in the semester. MottMotion to amend to decrease the $900 to $750. Finance committee did felt that 900 was too much to ask, we did give them a breakdown for the remaining cash in their budget. We had concern as to how efficiently they were using that money, we thought it was fair for them to use more of their present budget towards the trip. HershkowitzI yield my time to the Meteorology club. Meteorology PR directorThere are 16 people going Wardwhy wasn't I notified? The Meteorology club President just sent me an email outlining where the money for the fundraising would go, this information should have been passed on Vice President of Meteorology clubI registered us, this was last minute, I'm sorry, students who thought they had plans decided to go, we decided to present it here. HershkowitzAre you going to request more money? VP-No FarrellYou upped the amount to 16, but are still charging $50 a person, $400 is from your budget. The amount of $50 is based on assuming you get the $900 from senate? VPYes HubertPoint of information for Met club$1,865 was budgeted to you, and you wanted $1,950, where will the extra $95 go? VP13 people were estimated to go on the trip, because we set the deadline for last Friday. The President knew of more people that were interested, so we left a $95 lee way. FarrellAre you willing to charge $75 for your members to go?

PAGE 78

0 VP16 people are already registered, and they are already paying $50 of their own money for meals and any extra costs. If we increase this to $75 some of them will not be able to go. I believe last year we got $500 to $600 in additional money for this conference when we had 8 people attend. This year we are doubling our participation and it would be unfortunate if SA could not even double this amount. HubertIt is our job to give money to clubs to do these kinds of things, but it is also our job to make sure we have money. The accounts are dwindling, and asking your club members to pay a little more would allow us to have other organizations and clubs to have their speakers and go do the things that they need to do. I'm sure you understand 0 Meteorology PR DirectorRegarding the guest speaker which was discussed earlier, one of the senators made reference to how Oswego really appreciates clubs that are doing things from an educational perspective, and these students who are going on this trip are going to be getting an education for that weekend. You'd be hard pressed to find a student that wants to learn on their spring break and you should reward them by not putting such economic stress on them. RobinsonI think that every club on campus in their own is equally the same, and every club benefits students one way or another. Hershkowitz I request the chair take a vote Bacanskassecond Vote on amendment: 17-1 -0, amendment passes. Director SmithThe number of students going is 15 including a professor there is 16. SA doesn't pay for expenses of personal use, souvenirs, or faculty costs. The finance department allocates money for food. $3 per person and maybe 2 meals. VPThe Piez glass cases are outdated, and our professors want us to fix that as a club with material from this conference. SwensonWhy haven't you been hndraising all along? VPWe haven't talked about it. We didn't know about the shirts or anything because we just got in contact with the t-shirt company. HubertWe like to support organizations to get their education wherever it may be found. I think this is a great event, good for networking, necessary for club, I agree with the amendment but I also agree with the bill. Vote on the bill: 15-2-2 2.) SLE.40.30 Mens Rugby Coaching and Player Development Camp Certification MottThe President talked about this earlier, the bill is straight forward, the state requires it, and we are pretty sure that the certification is for lifetime, since they are giving it to 2 members the senate may not have to deal with it for a few years. Vote on the bill: 18-0-1 3.) SLE.40.33 SAPB Weekend Movie Series MottThere is no money coming out of senate accounts for this bill, it is just transferring their money Vote on the bill: 18-01 XII. New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.35 Men's Rugby Goal Posts Referred to Finance for one week 2.) SLE.40.35 Senate Account Transfer Referred to Finance for one week 3.)

RES. 40.03 No Automatic Annual Tuition Increases at SUNY HershkowitzThe timing of this was good, seeing that the Chancellor is visiting tomorrow. It basically says that we don't agree with his plans for the annual tuition increases, and that we don't support the tuition increase for next fall. I motion to pass by acclimation. RobinsonI second. Resolution passed by acclimation. XIII.

This semeter we are 9-5-1 and we still have more games on the schedule. Last season we only played 3 games and this year we are going to end up with about 21-25. So far for all of our away games we have been paying out of our pocket for transportation to away games. We had received money from you earlier in the year to pay for I I away games but we ended up having a lot more than that. Our last 2 games of the season are going to be in Buffalo and we are trying to save people some money because it is a long trip and an overnight. Just recently we drove 1200 miles in one weekend and spent $120 on gas; we have spent a lot already and we are just looking for a little help. WestfallHow many more away games do you have on the schedule now? Club Hockey Rep.We have 4 right now. WestfallSo last semester we gave you $1200 and you have added these games since then? Club Hockey Rep.Yes, these are all regular season games, we aren't going to have playoffs. HershkowitzDo you think that we could just give you more gas money instead of a charter bus? Yeah that might work its just that we want to relieve the people that have been our drivers to our games. HershkowitzDid you look into using school bus instead of a charter bus? Club Hockey Rep.Yes and we also looked into using the school vans but when I spoke with Kevin Sutherland he said that we wouldn't be able to do it. President SutherlandYou would be able to do it but you would need a faculty member on the trip and qualified people to drive the vans. Club Hockey Rep.This is something that we can look into and we will do that. I wish we had known about it sooner. We will be willing use the money for school vans if you could write that into the bill somehow. NYPIRG Last week we had our student action meeting and it went really well. Our different action groups will be working on different projects this semester and ill just let you know what those are going to be.

Men's Rugby We came last week and described our bill and I just wanted to come back and see if anyone had any questions for me. For our tournament we have more teams and 1 more field added. SIFE There is a bill going in this week and I just wanted to let you know a little about it. April 7 and 8 we are going to New York City for a conference and 43 people will be attending. We are asking for reimbursement for the hotel for 3 out of the 8 rooms we are getting. OTE A We just got back from the TECCA programs in Virginia Beach and we did very well. We were able to place in 3 of the 5 events. In teaching we came in 3'd, in Elementary Education we came in lSt and in manufacturing we got 2nd. Because of our outcome we are looking to go to the national competition. We were supposed to have our president here with a Powerpoint so that is all that we have for now and maybe we can come back up when she gets here. Guests of the Senate Gospel Choir Our concert this semester is going to be April 2nd. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland I just want to thank all of you for the card and the support last week. In response to Chancellor King's presentation, I just want to let you know how I feel about the issue. The tuition is expected to go up and I don't think that it has to. In the year of F03-Sp04, the state contributed $12 million, which was 27%. That percentage is going to keep going down if there is a $500 increase in tuition. In Kings proposal, he says tuition is going to become differential meaning that if you go to a larger state school like UB or Binghamton, you are going to pay more than at a school like Oswego. In conclusion, I am for the HEPI idea but not the $500 tuition increase. Vice President, Kristin Beck Tomorrow there is an event for Raise Your Voice Month. Auxiliary Services has a scholarship available and the application is available online. I just explain what acclimation means to you guys because a lot of people came to me after senate and voiced their concern with the acclimation. It means that the whole group approves of it and if you don't, then don't be afraid to say so. Don't be afraid of what people are going to think because that isn't what this is about, it's work, not social. WestfallSomething approved by acclimation means that the WHOLE senate approves of it and supports it so if you don't support it, please say something. I am going to take a vote to see if you still want this to be passed by acclimation. If you vote yes, you want to discuss it further, if you vote no, you are ok with it. (Vote shows majority of 'no') Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Budget council went pretty well the past 2 weekends. We are pretty much done with it we just have a few more executive board things to do.

McTiemanHow much do we have in the senate account? Director SmithI don't know right now, I will send out e-mails letting everyone know. Director of Disabilitv AffairsDan Preston This week I got a lot of interesting reports, does anyone want to talk about theirs? HershkowitzI researched a disability that affects the language part of the brain and these people can't write sentences or read them and comprehend them. They also can't speak them and when they try it comes out as a few random words. This usually happens fiom a traumatic injury not birth. WardI researched Cerebral Palsy, which is a muscle disorder. It can cause muscle spastics and uncontrollable movements and it can cause speech impediments. Many people who suffer fiom this have coordination problems and can't do hands on projects. There are 4 different types of the disease and I researched some of them. Physical therapy and surgery can be beneficial to treat the disease. Some people also suffer fiom clubfoot and epilepsy. So what did we learn about how these affect people in school? StrumI researched what schools do for people with disabilities. WestfallI researched a hearing disability and I learned that talking louder to the people doesn't make a difference, to them it is a clarity problem, not volume. 2 weeks fiom now you will get an assignment that lasts until April. The disability forum is going to be March 31d at 6PM. We are working on whether or not to get a club going for people with disabilities. I met with a few people about taking over my position when I am gone and if you know anyone who is interested you can let them know that I require a resume and a 200-250 word paper describing what you think you could do for this position. Can anyone guess what is the most difficult part of my whole day? Hershkowitzgetting through the snow? Hubertgetting dressed? Director PrestonPutting on my shoes and tying them. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols The next direct assembly is going to be this Thursday and the presentations will be by Mike Pastella and President Sutherland. VIII. Senator Issues Forum HershkowitzI just want to thank Kristin for coming here tonight being that she is sick. I would like to yield the rest of my time to OTEA and then to Arts Alive. OTEAThank you for being patient with us tonight. In our program here at Oswego there are about 350-400 people and we took 16 people to the TECHA competition. There were different categories to compete in such as teaching a lesson, transportation, manufacturing, and elementary education. We basically went this year so that we could report back for years to come and let them know what to expect in upcoming years. We were very proud that we placed in the manufacturing competition because it is one of the hardest ones and we were there with the minimum amount of tools to bring. This conference was paid by clearing out our whole account so if we go to Nationals in Missouri it would be paid out of pocket. Arts AliveWe are currently planning a 3 day trip to Washington D.C. and we are asking for money for the transportation which is $2000. We will be going to different art museums. It is open to any student that wants to go and it will take place on April 1,2,3. RobinsonI would just like to recommend that we start referring to everyone in here as we are supposed to. For example, use President Sutherland and Vice President Beck when referring to them. We have gotten very lax about that lately. FarrellI will have to leave senate early so I am going to talk about the SLE.40.36 bill which is WTOP funds transfer. They are just transferring the money from one account to another so that they can improve the quality of what they put out. MapesMotion to close, 2nd Strum IX. Committee Reports Policy We finalized the bylaw changes and you will get a copy of those tonight. We are going to be meeting Thursday at 7:30 to review the legislation.

RobinsonI disagree with this totally, I think that they deserve the money, they have spent a lot already. HubertIf this was deferred for another week how would that affect the Hockey team, we could re-refer it. They should be able to get enough money to cover the hotel and the gas. Director SmithBy the time that the bill gets passed, it would be at least 2 weeks so we wouldn't have time to re-refer it. RobinsonThey have used so much of their money, I don't think that we should pass this amendment. HershkowitzThis $400 is for travel costs and written after we discussed them using the van for transportation. Vote on amendment: 4-7-1, amendment fails HershkowitzI understand that you don't want this amendment, but $1800 is a lot of money to go to Buffalo. HubertI also think that $1 800 is too much money but I think that $400 is too little.

PAGE 85

Club Hockey RepI don't think that $400 is too unfair but we could use $500 just to be safe for gas and $240 for the hotel. KinnearYou have other trips to go on right? So you would need money for them also. I think that $500 or $600 would be fair in gas and then $240 for the hotel. RobinsonMotion to amendLine 15 amount of $240 to $740 total.

Motion to approve Agenda: Belser, 2nd Mapes. V. Public Comment NYPIRG The higher ed. campaign is going well. This Thursday there is going to be a speak out at 12:15 in the Formal lounge and Ian Farrell will be speaking. We invited WTOP, WNYO, and the newspapers to come to the event. The Hunger and Homeless group is going to be doing an Easter food drive on March 26th outside of P&C. With our last food drive we had a huge success and got enough food to benefit families until April. The consumer project is underway and they are looking into the return exchange. It involves a California company and if you return merchandise to one of their stores your information is kept in a database and if you return too frequently you aren't allowed to return anymore. We are trying to find out the criteria for denying people the right to return. We would like you guys to help out and call 1-800-652-233 1 to find out your report and then contact NYPIRG with your results SIFE Today we have a bill coming up for $750 to go to NYC for a conference. SIFE is a global organization that is active in 40 countries, involves 1600 colleges and 15,000 students. SIFE gives away $1,000,000 in prize money and scholarships each year. We are the most active business organization on campus and we are made up of people from all majors not just business majors. We are working on 17 new projects this year. The campus department is working on things such as in debt, Welcome to the Real World, and Gateway to Business. The Community Department is working on things such as the Stock market at elementary schools, Harborfest, and BOCES. The Business Department is working with places such as Toucans, Water St. and Kathmandu. Our most recent event was Welcome to the Real World and we had about 274 people sign in so I'm sure there were more that just walked around and didn't sign in. This was a tool to help juniors and seniors prepare for graduation and after. We had many speakers from the campus and the city. For this event we spent $20 in copies and that was our only expense. As for fundraising, we did 2 events last semester and are doing 4 this semester. Coming up we are doing a dodgeball tournament and last semester it raised us $300.

PAGE 88

We get a lot of donations from places. Our website was a donation because it costs to have a website. All together, there are about 10 meetings a week for this organization. For this trip, we need 8 hotel rooms in all and we are asking the senate to pay for 3 of them. In NYC we will be competing against other schools on a 30 minute presentation. This event is a conference/jobfair/competition. In the past we have done very well and placed either 1 St or 2nd. We are going to be paying for gas, tolls, and food along the trip. We raised about $460 so far this year and actually increased our account fiom what was originally given to us. We only have 2 faculty members going on the trip. The reason that we decided to stay at this hotel was because it was close and if we stayed farther away, we would have to pay taxi fares and for all those people it would end up being more expensive. We are going to Nationals in Kansas City so we need to save the money to attend that. We got $2300 from senate last year and we know we can't get that much this year. If we win regionals we get a $1500 prize so that would go towards our trip to nationals. Also, the business department is going to help us fund our trip to nationals. Cheerleading We have a bill going in for an upcoming competition. We have come a long way in the past few years. The team used to be below a High School level and now we have improved to a competitive college level. We now have about half of the team that can tumble for competition. We hold practice 3-4 times a week and we pay out of our pocket to take gymnastic classes and use the room there. There is a new level of commitment on our team that we didn't have before, everyone is really excited to compete this year. We went to Utica recently to support the men's basketball team. For our hotel it is $70 per team member and we have 21 team members. We have $100 discount because we are staying in the hotel where the competition is being held. We need 8 rooms at about $1 00 per room. BacanskasHow many teams are in the competition? Cheer Rep. It is a national level and there are all different ages and levels there so it is a pretty big competition. RobinsonHow much is the hotel per night? Cheer Rep. It is going to be $90-$100. LamphereHow many people are staying in each room? Cheer Rep. There are going to be either 4 or 5 people in a room and the coaches each get their own room and the guys get a separate room. LamphereWhat have you done for fbndraising? Cheer Rep. We are working on setting up an Oswego discount card. MottYou had a $2000 budget this year, what was that used for? Cheer Rep. We have to pay our coaches and we bought signs and new men's uniforms. MapesHow big of a problem would it be to have your coaches stay in the same room? Or have 5 people stay in one room? Cheer Rep. We can talk to our coaches and look into putting 5 people in a room. Arts Alive This year we have about 35-50 members and for our trip we have 48 students from all different majors attending. There are 7 faculty who are mostly fiom the art department because they know all of the good places to see. The trip is going to be fiom Friday April 1" until Sunday April 31d. We are going to be staying at the Best Western and the first day we are meeting with Roberto Bocci, a professor of art at Georgetown. We are going to be going to the Corcoran Gallery, National Gallery, Hirshorn Museum, Museum of Women in the Arts, etc. The charter bus that we are going to be taking costs $2,150 and that is a definite cost. The hotel is going to be $3,036 at $89 per night for 17 rooms (4 people per room).

PAGE 89

Each person right now is paying $62. Lsat year our trip was cheaper because we didn't go as far and some people are upset that the price went up. We have some people that won't be going if the price of the trip goes up anymore. Our bill is asking for the $2150 for the bus. We are willing to use the $700 that is in our account towards the bus as well. VI. Committee Reports Policy: We finalized the changes to the Bylaws last week and we are going to be meeting Thursday at 7. Procedure: We went over the amendments to committee structure. Finance: For the SIFE bill, they came and talked to us and we recommend the bill as is. For Arts Alive, we recommend but with amendments. We didn't get a chance to discuss the Pre Law bill but we approve of it because I know we need the extra money in 6502. Involvement: We have basically just been doing advertising for the elections. Health & Safety: We will be meeting next Wednesday at 9: 15 in the SA office. Elections: We met last week to discuss the Johnson debates. The voting is going to be taking place March 8" and 9" on MyOswego. There will be e-mail reminders sent out to every student. The debates went well last week however, Sean Green has withdrawn fiom the election so Scott Robinson is running unopposed. There are more debates tonight at 8:30 and WTOP, WNYO and the Oswegonian will be there. The last debate is going to be on the 6" in the basement of Seneca. We will be meeting next Wednesday. FarrellI nominate Senator Chadev to policy committee, 2nd Bacanskas. Nomination accepted. CCRT: I have a meeting this week. VII. Special Orders 1 .) SLE.40.46 Pre-law Club to Senate Account Fund Transfer President Sutherland: I moved this to Special Orders because I have not yet signed the resolution put in to me but I am going to be doing that soon. The pre-law club feels that their money can be better spent by the Senate so they are passing it over to you and I know that you need the money soon because of all of the large bills coming up. Vote on bill: 18-0-1, Legislation passes VIII. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.39 Amendments to the Student Association Constitutional Bylaws FarrellSince the strike through bylaws just came through today I would like to send it back to policy for 1 week,2"* Robinson. 2.) SLE.40.40 SIFE Hotel Money for Competition DurginThey do a really good job at budgeting the money that we give them and raising money of their own that I think they deserve this money and I hope that you agree. Vote: 17-0-2, Legislation passes 3.) SLE.40.4 1 Amendment to SLE.38.51: Student Association Committee Structure HershkowitzThis issue came up last year around the Referendum time so we came up with a bill and passed a flawed version of the procedure. There are a few problems with the bill such as if you miss more than one meeting you could be removed fiom a chair position. We gave the chair member in question an extra week to rebuttal. We also changed the removal of the chair person to be done by a vote in senate instead of just the committee itself. I request debate on this because I want to know what you guys think we should change with it. HubertIn line 34, I think there should be more restriction on that. (Pertaining to the committee chair being at the meeting when they are being put up for removal). HershkowitzIf you want to put an amendment in that is fine with me. WestfallI concur with Senator Hubert, I would feel more comfortable if it said "should" instead of "must". MottI think that the chair should get a letter saying that they can appear at Senate to defend themselves and if they don't then that is considered their attempt at rebuttal. RobinsonI concur with Senator Mott. HershkowitzO We can re-refer it to procedure and add amendments. 2nd Mott.

PAGE 90

4.) SLE.40.42 Arts Alive Trip to Washington D.C. HershkowitzThey do an annual trip every year and they are paying the cost of the hotel and food out of pocket, I think that we should try and help them out if we are able to do so. M&Motion to amendWe are going to use the $700 in their account towards the cost of the bus and they told us that they could go up to $65 a person and we are going to do that which changes the total amount to $121 0.2"* Robinson. HershkowitzThis is the absolute lowest amount they can go for their trip or people will drop out. HubertThe trip is educational but asking them to pay more isn't a very big deal. Maybe we could change it to $10 more instead of $5. RobinsonThat really is a lot to ask for a college student. HubertThe meteorology club is paying more for their trip and they are going to represent the college. HershkowitzThey are going some place educational and I understand the concerns but it all comes down to if they can or can't go on this trip. HubertWe have about $6000 coming up in legislation and we have to judge where to make cuts. KinnearWe just cut the cost they were asking for in half. LamphereI agree with Senator Hubert that they could pay $75 per person. They should be a little more open to the amount. FarrellHow many people are going on this trip? Arts AliveAbout 48 people and they really can't afford to go if the price goes above $65. We have to fill the bus and if we don't we will have to pay for the people that don't go. SwenssonWe have competition bills and recreation bills, this is a recreation trip and I think that $10 more is reasonable. ChadaevDo you need to have 7 faculty members go on the trip? Arts AliveWe need to fill 55 seats on the bus and with the faculty we fill that. ChadaevMaybe the faculty should pay more for their trip than the students do. Arts AliveWe can talk to them about it but they probably won't be happy having to pay more. LamphereA trip to D.C. for $75 is a really good deal. If you went on a trip for the weekend there on your own it would be a lot more expensive. SwenssonYou could open it up to other students to help fill the seats. Arts AliveIt is already open to anyone but no one has expressed interest in going. SwenssonI had no idea before you came here tonight that the trip was even taking place, you could advertise it better. MapesIf they pay $5 more per person, it would knock off $200 from the price. DurginI concur with Senator Hubert and Senator Swensson. KinnearIt doesn't seem worth it to change the price if half of the people are going to drop out. RobinsonI look at any trip as a vacation so we shouldn't be classifying these trips. HershkowitzI concur with Senator Robinson. We are fighting over $200 and it makes a difference in whether or not they take this trip we should just vote and give them the money. I request the chair to take a vote on the amendment. HubertObjection. I think that if the trip is so important then $5 more isn't a big deal. In finance we voted to bring the total down more. President SutherlandI yield my time to Director DrogoI don't feel that my SA money should be going to pay for the faculty as well. BelserWe are heckling over a small amount of money we should get past this and vote on the amendment. RobinsonMotion to call to question. 2"* Hershkowitz. Vice President BeckIf you Gate yes, then you want to vote on the amendment now. Vote on call to question: 16-2-1, passes

PAGE 91

IX. X. Vote on amendment: 15-2-2, amendment passes MottWhen we are talking about the trips being a vacation or a competition, I agree that they are all like vacations. The difference to us is that in a competition they are representing the school and possibly getting prizes. I really want them to go on this trip but at the same time I would choose competitions over this. They haven't done a lot of fundraising this year. KinnearWe are in danger of showing favoritism to certain organizations. If going to D.C. is going to help them with their career then it means the same thing as a conference does. McTiernanWe aren't showing favoritism but we are restrained with money. I would like them to go but we might not have the money. WardWe are in constraint but the criteria for the bills is the same. Arts AliveWe do represent Oswego and we will be learning a lot from this trip. We just represent in a different way. We go to the SUNY Art Exhibition and we are doing well and getting known for our work. This trip will really help fuel our fire. HershkowitzWe can't say who benefits the campus more. Some organizations are out there and attempting to get jobs from conferences. We need to be careful on denying them just because we don't think they represent the campus in the same way other organizations do. We should fund this trip because it is a different kind of representation for our college. HubertIt is our job to put the criteria on how we fund organizations. We need to make sure that we can fund other organizations that are coming. I would like to amend in the following ways. Line 10, 13, and 15 change the amount to $1000. 2nd Lamphere. HershkowitzThe criteria for funding doesn't say that we should fund more for competitions. I think that $1000 for this trip is too little. RobinsonI concur with Senator Hershkowitz. Senator Hubert brings up a good point but I think that art is important and we don't appreciate it as much as we should. If it will help them by going to museums then we should give them the money. MapesI Request the chair to take a vote. HubertIf we pass this then we will have about $4300 left in our account and we have $6000 coming up in bills. BacanskasI would like to call to question. 2nd Mapes Vote on call to question: 17-1 -1, passes Vote on amendment: 51 1-2, amendment fails. DurginThey are relying on a fundraiser at the very end of the year. They should have planned better for this trip.

I urge you to go to the SA debates tonight they are at 8:30 in the Union. You have to be fiscally careful with your budget and how you choose to distribute your money. SA Vice PresidentKristin Beck We have a new senator from Hart, Maria Barra. I have Dan Preston's report because he was unable to make it. If you know anyone that is interested in filling his position, a 200-250 word essay and a resume are due by March gth. Director or FinanceNancy Smith I agree that you need to be using your money wisely from now until the end of the year. If you didn't get the pre-law money you would have been out of money now.

So far this year there have been 18 legislations passed. I am working on getting fliers done to recruit a new director of finance for next year. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols The movie project is going well, within an hour of being out they were all in circulation. Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo Today I printed out about 100 fliers for the elections and 1 did it late because I found out late. I put them up in non-legal places just so that people would see them as they passed through. I just want to say that for SIFE we have 8 people who are just in charge of findraising for the year so I encourage other organizations to have even 1 person be in charge of it. I will probably be an off campus senator starting next month when my term is over so I will be able to give you guys some more of my view points. MapesPlease hand out these elections fliers to people that you see and hang them in your dorms. We want a big turnout. I can make more fliers if you need more. Also, I updated the website so the debate dates are on there as well. XI. Senator Issues ForumHubertIn the SIFE bill it said the number of people going was 38 but you said that 42 were going does that make a difference? HershkowitzNo it doesn't matter. Director DrogoIf anyone wants to play dodgeball feel fiee to get a senate team or your own team started. HershkowitzOn the topic of the elections, I just want to say that last year we had twice as many voters as in years past. Online is so much easier for people so remind people in your hall and make reminders in class. There is an e-mail to every student so everyone should be informed. MapesMake sure you do what you can to get people to vote, make announcements in your classes please! FarrellI encourage everyone to attend the debates tonight and Sunday night.

Our most successful event was the Vagina Monologues. We have extra fliers for you for HERstory month so feel free to take them on your way out. Tomorrow is "The Female Orgasm" and we have a man and a woman coming to speak from Albany. They are going to talk about things that don't normally get talked about. Cheerleading We have our bill up tonight to be voted on. We have been working really hard this year and we hope that this bill passes so that we can do our job of representing the school. This competition is a big deal to us and we have been working towards it for a few years now. RobinsonAre you counting on all of this money to be able to go? CheerWe are having a fundraiser so we could potentially still go with only some money. NYPIRG We currently have the referendum going on and it is a big deal to us so we are trying hard to get it passed. We have had about 150 hours of volunteer hours. Students can vote for us to be elected or can be on our boards. We deal with many student issues and that is why people appreciate what we do. This Thursday we are going to be making the basket for the easter food drive at 7:OO. Yesterday 350 students participated in Lobby day. They sat with legislators and we got some TV coverage. OTEA We are trying to get to the national competition but we didn't know about it ahead of time so we couldn't plan our money for it. We are going to the state competition in Buffalo but we are already paying for that out of pocket. We did a fundraiser but we didn't make much profit off of it. RobinsonCould you still go if you didn't get all of the money? OTEAWe will try to get the money from elsewhere. Guests of the Senate Gospel Choir Our concert this semester is going to be April 2nd. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland Tonight finance committee is meeting to go over the budget. I think there was confusion last week when I asked Senator Hershkowitz about his mug. I was saying it because I was happy to see that an SA organization had already used the new SA logo.

PAGE 95

IX. I am looking forward to a week off and hope everyone enjoys their break. SA Vice President Kristin Beck There are 2 new off campus senators, they are Anthoy Armelino and Zachary Roberts. Last week the Arts Alive bill debate started going towards discussion that shouldn't have been brought up. Try and stay away from distinguishing differences between organizations' trips. Director of FinanceNancy Smith Finance is meeting tonight and going over the budget council recommendations. I sent out an e-mail to pick up 3 year worksheets. March 23d is the tier 3 recommendation deadline. April 5" is budget appeals at senate. Director of Disability ServicesDan Preston On March 31~ we had a meeting to look into starting a group on campus and we only had one person attend. I think that it was due to bad timing. I am still looking into the band for May Day and basketball team. Applications and resumes are due tonight for my position. For the next homework: As for the first homework you were to pick a disability and determine what academic problems might arise. Now you have to take the research further and come up with a specific problem and address the problem and its solutions. Write this in a resolution format that way it will give you experience with writing a resolution. This is due March 29". Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo Director Nichols, President Sutherland and I have been working on a Tsunami relief bowling event. We are going to have different organizations get teams and compete against each other. If we fill the bowling alley we get more money so we hope to do that. I have been doing some promoting for the elections and I am kind of disappointed in the involvement committee. I printed out thousands of fliers, updated the website, etc. I felt like I should take a part in helping, but not do all of it. I had things air on WTOP also. I hope that for future elections, the involvement committee is more involved. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols March 29" is the bowl-a-thon and it is going to be $15 per person. It will be taking place from 9:30-12 and there will be door prizes. I would really like to fill the alley so that we can raise more money. Fliers will be made available to you so you can distribute them. RobinsonIs there any additional money? NicholsNo CrockerIs it $15 for everything? NicholsYes Senator Issues Forum MottFor future elections maybe you could make the link bigger on myoswego because I had a problem finding it when I got onto the site. MapesIt was made as large as it could go but I didn't realize that it was going to be that small. RobinsonLast year I think that it was in red and they changed that this year. RobinsonSome of my constituents are talking about the garbage cans that are between Tyler and Mahar and they say that garbage is everywhere. This needs to be taken care of. Motion to close: Robinson, 2* Strum Committee Reports Policy: We met on Thursday and we went over Dr. Scharfenbergers suggestions for the bylaw changes. We will be meeting this Thursday at 7 in the library caf6. Procedure: We discussed the bylaw changes and we added things to the SA committee structure bill. We are not meeting this week. I have an amendment to the senators rights and responsibilities. Finance: We recommend all of the bills but we also have amendments for all of them. We are meeting this week after senate and we are going to have our usual meeting Wednesday at 9. The week we get back from spring break will probably be a longer meeting so be prepared for that.

PAGE 96

Involvement: Thanks for helping out with the elections. We won't be meeting this week but next meeting will be the Wednesday after spring break at 9. Health and Safe&: We are looking at fire evacuation plans and security escorts. Elections: Tuesdays debate went well but there was only 1 person at Sundays debate. In regards to the constitution changes in the election, people can e-mail me and I can send them the changes if they are interested in what they are, they were not made available on the site. We are going to meet tomorrow at 7 to go over the results. As of 4 today we had 841 voters. CCRT: Jen Hill is actually President Stanleys daughter and she wants to come to a senate meeting this year and she is all for playing softball. Lots of people in the city try to exclude the students because if they are further in town we don't affect them as much and we want to change that. I would also really like it if someone followed up this position next year. Nominations for committees: Mott nominates Armelino for Involvement Committee, 2nd Durgin Hershkowitz nominates Roberts for Procedure Committee, 2nd Mapes Farrell nominates Barra for Policy Committee, 2nd Belser X. General Orders 1.) SLE.40.39 Amendments to the Student Association Constitutional Bylaws. Refer to Bylaw changes packet. Vote on legislation: 17-0-1 legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.41 Amendment to SLE.38.51: Student Association CommitteeMotion to amend in the following waysHershkowitzWe changed the whole 2nd part of the removal procedure. 2nd Hubert. RobinsonI think that the questions have been answered with this amendment. MottIf the person is initially at the meeting do they still get a week? HershkowitzI think that its implied that they don't. MottThey don't need to have more than a week but I think that they should have some time. HershkowitzIf they are there they can give their rebuttle then and if it comes down to this then they probably don't have much of a debate. Vote on amendment: 18-0-0 amendment passes. HershkowitzCurrently the procedure for recall is missing 1 meeting and we knew that had to be changed so basically we are putting that in the form of a bill. Vote on legislation: 18-0-0 legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.43 Cheerleading Association Conference: HershkowitzI am personally for this bill, I think that they should get a reasonable amount. Motion to amendMottChange the total amount to $500, we struck hotel and each person will now pay $62. 2nd Hubert. HershkowitzIs it feasible for you to go if you only get this amount? CheerWe were really looking for the registration fee, we didn't tell the team that that was a required fee for this year. HershkowitzI think that we could increase this amount for them. CheerWe have been working for 2 years to go to this competition. RobertsHow much are you expecting to get from fundraising? CheerWe aren't sure how much we are going to make. MottI understand that cutting a bill this much is rough but we only have $6000 for the rest of the semester and I feel that if they have been planning this for 2 years they could have planned the money better. HubertWe are doing this now so that we don't have to do it later, we have to make cuts somewhere. RobinsonSome of my constituents agree that they should have more money saved up for this. BelserI agree with the fact that we are asking them to pay this amount. 1 don't think that it is too extreme to ask them to pay $60-65. WardI agree that $65 per person is feasible. Vote on amendment: 15-3-0 amendment passes. Vote on legislation: 14-0-4 legislation passes

XI. XII. XIII. 4.) SLE.40.44 OTEA National Conference: OTEAThis national conference is coming out of the regional conference, we didn't expect to be going. We don't want to send our whole team only enough to participate in the events. We are trying to get money from other sources but so far we are stuck. Motion to amendMottChange the total amount to $500 using $1000 from their budget. That makes it $150 per person for a 4 day trip to Kansas City. 2nd Kinnear. OTEAWe are weary of taking $1000 from our account because we had plans to buy equipment to take with us on this trip. We also don't want to ask 6 people to pay $150 but we will do our best to figure it out. FarrellHow much are you willing to pay per person? OTEAWe are paying out of pocket for our state competition so I'm not really sure. HubertThey weren't expecting this and either we way, I want them to go and I hope that they can get the money but I think we are being fair. MottIf they are unable to go at least we can plan better for next year. Their department told them to come to us first and then they would see what they could do. Kinnear$500 gives them the chance to go, we need to worry about our budget. OTEAThe department doesn't have any money to give us and either does the school of education. RobertsWhy are we punishing them for their success? How much could you pay for your trip? OTEAThe registration is $35. FarrellWhat have you done for hndraising or looking to do? OTEAWe are looking to do t-shirts and we have had other ideas but nothing is quick enough for this trip. HubertIt is a privilege to go to a conference. They said that they are there just to gain knowledge so the best people don't have to go. Vote on amendment: 9-7-2, amendment passes. WardWe should just pass the bill and give them the chance of going. RobinsonI really want you to get more money but if the bill was for more, it may not pass. Vote on legislation: 18-0-0 legislation passes. 5.) SLE.40.45 African Student Organization: WardAS0 benefits heritage week, this involves African rituals. I admire that they have grown as a club. Motion to amendHershkowitz1 amendment says that they need $1350 instead of $1500 and the other says that all revenues will go back to SA. 2nd Ward. KinnearIt comes out of a joint account I think that we should pass this. SwenssonHow much are the tickets? MottThey are somewhere from $10-13 and the 25 people that are helping out are paying $5, they should get about $625. FarrellAre they expecting a large turnout for this event? WardThere should be students from other schools attending. BelserIn Binghamton it was successful and I think it should be here too. WardAS0 has good contacts so there should be a good turnout. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes Vote on legislation: 17-0-1, legislation passes. New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.47 Great Lake ReviewRefer to finance for 1 week.

President SutherlandThe senate has allowed me to do so before. President SutherlandI wish to add SLE.40.48 to the agenda, 2"d Hershkowitz. Motion to approve the agendaBacanskas, 2nd Belser Public Comment SAPB Next Saturday is going to be the spring event. It is going to be a comedy show instead of music. We are having the Best of the Chapel show. We only need $7000 on this concert to make our income line and I think that is very feasible. It is a little late to announce this but we have PRSSA and others working hard to promote this next week. I have spoken with Dr.Hughes about May Day and with our money that we have left over we are going to be having some acts come and play for May Day. Two of the acts are nationally known and a few are local but working their way up. All together there will be about 8 or 9 bands. It is completely free to you and they will be playing all day. NYPIRG We were very happy with the turnout on the referendum. We were working very hard and it paid off. I would also like to congratulate Ian and Scott on your elections. I want to clear up some confusion on our public comment last week. I believe that some senators were upset that one of the officers was wearing a "Vote yes for NYPIRG" shirt because they thought that it was SA funded. However, the t-shirts were actually made by my dad and me. There was also some confusion going around about the way that our money is distributed. We do not distribute our money like SA does. I would just appreciate it if you came to NYPIRG with your concerns so that we can answer any questions for you before you go to your constituents. In regards to the higher ed campaign, the senate and assembly passed a preliminary budget and the assembly rejected the TAP plan, the incremental plan and the initial $500 increase. For the first time ever, the budget should be out by April IS'. The EPA came out with final mercury information and it turns out that the levels are going to remain. This Thursday we are attending a press conference about getting unclaimed deposits distributed differently. We are having our Easter food drive Saturday April 2"d. Men's Rugby We just wanted to come here and thank you for the funding you allowed us to go for our certification; we should now be set for about 3 years.

PAGE 100

Great Lake Review We are looking to put the literary magazine back on campus. We just stepped up to this about a month ago and we feel that the creative writing department needs an outlet as well. We already have many people interested we just need the funding to get it going. We only need money for printing and we took out the artwork and the color on the cover of the magazine. We are hoping to turn the organization around next year and get a full board of officers. This magazine could be an outlet for anyone on campus, not just the creative writing majors. We are approximating that we will be making 300 copies but we are willing to break that in half, however that doesn't knock the cost in half. RobertsHave you looked around and done other pricing? 0 GLRWe already have a layout from when the magazine was in production before and we feel it would be more expensive if we tried to change that. VI. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland We had an amazing time on spring break. I don't have much of anything for you tonight; I will have more things for next week. SA Vice President: Kristin Beck We have received 2 thank you cards and we also got invited to the SAVAC annual banquet. It will be on April 16& at the Press Box and you must RSVP by March 24&. I will post it by the mailboxes because we only got one for the whole senate. Sorry about getting the packet out to you late. Faculty assembly meets every other week and we need to fill the other 2 seats that are available. Senator Farrell is going to start attending and is there anyone else that is interested? The meetings are from 3 to 5 and never go beyond, that it is a set time.Ward is interested. Spring break was fun but the bus rides were not. If you hear of people being upset with Breakaway Tours for that, let them know that it was the bus company not Breakaway. Assistant Director of FinanceKelly Lyon Nancy will have a bill or two for you next week. The applications for Director of finance and Driector of Human Resource have to be in by April lSt. VII. Senator Issues Forum RobinsonThere have been the rumors going around about NYPIRG that they sponsor everything, if you hear this please e-mail me, it upsets me and I want to find out more about it. Motion to close: Hershkowitz, 2nd Lamphere VIII. Committee Reports Policv: We didn't meet last week and I will be e-mailing everyone with the date and time for this weeks meeting. Procedure: We also didn't meet last week and we are meeting this Thursday in the SA office at 8. Finance: Thank you for coming to the meeting last week I know it was long. We are going to be meeting again tonight to finish budget council things and we recommend the bill that is up for tonight. Involvement: We didn't meet last week and I am unsure about when this weeks meeting is going to be so I will e-mail everyone to let them know. Health and Safetv: We will meet Thursday at 9 in the SA office. RobinsonI want to thank Senator Bacanskas for taking care of the garbage issue, it was taken care of quickly.

We had 1859 people vote all together. We will be meeting Wednesday at 8:30. CCRT: I am going to call after Easter again.

This shows that hard work really does pay off and we got our voice out there and it was heard. The Governor still has to pass his budget but for the first time in many years it is going to be out by April 1 ". The food drive to benefit needy families is going to be taking place Saturday at P&C fiom 11-3. The Earth Day Fair is in the works it is going to be held April 14~. Executive Report SA President: Kevin Sutherland This is my last senate meeting as President but I will be coming back as an offcampus senator when I am done with my term. I want to recap on some of the things that we have accomplished this year: This summer I went to every orientation and met a lot of incoming freshmen. The executive board retreat was a fun time for all. The SUNY Board of Trustees threw a lot of things at us but we were able to deal with them and get them done with many thanks to Ian and Nancy.With the involvement fair I would like to thank the organizations that participated and I hope that it continues. The new website is an improvement but and is still in progress, thank you to Andy Drogo for your work on that. The new SA logo is now put out there, thank you to the Senate for getting that through and to Andy and Heather McBride for your work on creating it. The DVDYs in the library are already a hit, thank you to Mike Olenick and Billy Nichols for getting that going. The SAVAC garage is going to be built, I signed on it today. The Tsunami relief is going well, thank you to the organizations and Billy for your efforts in organizing that. Spring Break in Panama went well, thank you to Breakaway Tours. I would like to continue the process of moving unused funds fiom organizations back into the senate account so money-hoesn9t go unused. We have had

PAGE 104

helpful computer maintenance this year and letting organizations use the computers in the office. My e-board had a good time together this year. Kristin and I have worked very well as a team even though we disagree on some things, we managed pretty well. Nancy, we wouldn't have gotten through this year without you and your hard work. Dan Tuscarella was mainly behind the scenes but was a big help to me. Dan Preston has taught me a lot about myself since I have known him and I hope that our friendship will continue. Billy, I have watched you grow since you came to college and you have done great things already, I know you will be successful in the future. Andy has become one of my best friends this past year and I know that this year wouldn't have been the same without you. Scott Jones is not only one of my directors but a housemate and a good friend. Aida and Kelly, your assistance to Nancy has been greatly appreciated. Justin Barber, director of off-campus services has made many positive changes for the off-campus students and I'm sure the good things will continue. To the faculty and staff, Dr. Scarfenberger, Dr. King, and Nick Lyons have given me new perspectives throughout my term. I would also like to thank President Stanley and Dr. Chlemo. One last thank you to Greg Lawson for being a good friend. I think that's about it, thank you for a great year. SA Vice President: Kristin Beck This year has been amazing and Kevin and I have made it through our differences. Our e-board has had a great time together this year. Andy, thank you, you have helped me the most throughout this year. To the senate, most of you are new this year and I hope that you have learned a lot, it is a really good experience. I have been going to senate meetings since I came to college and I am thankful for the experiences that I have had. Greg Lawson got me into the SA thing and he has taught me everything that I know. Good luck to Ian and Scott in your upcoming year. It has been a good successful year, we have managed to avoid negative press. We didn't have any election problems and we didn't have any impeachments. We were able to make many amendments this year and overall I think we were very productive. Director of FinanceNancy Smith I have 2 bills coming tonight, one for the transfer of funds from 6501 and a copy of the budget that we worked so hard to get through. Next week is going to be the appeal process and they have to be turned in by Thursday. The accounts are now as follows: 6501$28,375.22, 6502$5,999.66, 6503$0, 6506$270.21,6505$220. Director of Disability AffairsDan Preston To prove that it hasn't hit me yet, I just realized that this was my last meeting so I didn't have anything prepared. The president elect can take care of the homework for next week. Greg Lawson also got me involved in SA the way that I am. I would like to thank the senators, you have done well this year. I have been less vocal this year in SA because our e-board had a superb handle on things and I didn't need to be as vocal. I had a lot of faith in our e-bard, you guys are amazing. This administration has been the backbone of my work, I really appreciate that. It is going to be very hard for me to leave, but I will still be around, you can count on that. There will be no more homework from me, thank you again and have a fun year! Director of Public RelationsAndrew Drogo

PAGE 105

I realized how much we have really grown this year, we made a great team. Kevin did an amazing job as president and he ran crazy hours in the office. Kristin has run great meetings and overall done a great job. Nancy, you have been great this year in dealing with the organizations. Billy, all the work you have done has been great and no matter what if you succeed or not, you always put your heart into it. Dan Preston has taught me a lot this year, if you don't know him, get to know him. The other directors were great too, we had made a great team, thank you for a great year. Director of Student AffairsBilly Nichols This year, without Andy and Kevin I would have been lost. I hope that everyone can attend the bowl-a-thon tonight. Camp Hollis was a really memorable time for me this year. VII. Senator Issues Forum MottThere is another off-campus luncheon tomorrow in the Forum; the first 50 people eat free. ColemanThe Gospel Choir is having their annual dinner Saturday and tickets are free and available at Ticketmaster. RobinsonIn regards to last weeks rumors about NYPIRG, I have done some research and I have found that these things seem to be coming from more than one person. I was hoping that maybe we could get a committee together to investigate this further. Motion to create a committee, 2nd Mott. HershkowitzWhat would this committee investigate? RobinsonWe want to clear up the rumors and find out where they are coming from. HershkowitzHave there been any complaints to the Supreme Court? RobinsonI don't think there have been yet but I would like to be prepared if that were to happen. HershkowitzWould this investigation be used as evidence? RobinsonBasically people are talking and I don't want to get into everything now that is why I want to form a committee maybe we can meet after this meeting to decide if we want to. MottI had a student confm this rumor and out of personal curiosity I would like to investigate it. RobertsAre there actually any names or faces to these rumors? It seems absurd to exploit an organization without names of first hand accounts. MottI have a name but I don't have the permission to give that information out yet. RobinsonWell I just want to know if most people are in favor I would like to motion to vote, 2nd Durgin. SwenssonObjection, if we don't know information I don't think that we should be voting on what we don't know. BelserThis seems like a waste of time really. We can't chase down the rumors that we hear and I fail to see how this is going to lead us anywhere. HubertThe goal is to find out what is being said, not to take legal action. You have the option of whether or not you want to be on this committee. HershkowitzWhat exactly are we investigating? RobinsonI see this as a problem and I just want to further the investigation. MottSince independent people are hearing it I feel that it is an important rumor to address and with the committee it would be easier to find these things out.

PAGE 106

BarraI agree with Senator Belser, we can't chase down rumors, they are going to spread and you can't stop it or find out where it started from. The only thing we can do is say that it isn't true. Dr. ScharfenbergerI suggest that if you vote to make the committee you have to pay attention to the rules of the committee, etc. RobinsonI withdraw my motion. VIII. Committee Reports Policy There was no meeting last week and there wont be one this week. I will be in the library if anyone wants to come and work on things. I also will be stepping down as policy chairman. Procedure: We met last week and started writing legislation for the fund reserve to determine how we can use it. There is no meeting this week. Finance: Thank you for attending the meeting again this week, they have been lengthy. The reserve fund bill came up and we recommend it. We will meet Thursday at 9 in the SA office. Involvement: No report Health and Safe@: We met last Thursday and there will be no meeting this week. Elections: We will meet tomorrow at 8:30 to work on the elections timeline. CCRT: RobinsonI nominate Senator Durgin for CCRT, 2nd Swensson. Jen would like Senator Durgin to go to one of their meetings and she would like to come to one of ours. IX. Special Orders 1.) SLE.40.52 Social Justice Club Get Free Times RobertsThey have been paying out of pocket for the past few issues and we are requesting $175 for the rest of the year. We are also starting to take on advertising fees. HershkowitzThey are a tier 1 organization and they have been working really hard and doing advertising. I think that we should give this money to them. President SutherlandI just wanted to know why this had to be put on special orders? RobertsWe need to start our issue on Friday so it was late notice. HubertWhy was the amount changed? RobertsThe first amount was a high estimate for 500 issues but we cut it to 400. HubertWhy did it take so long to get this done that now it needed to go on special orders? RobertsWe have been talking about it and working on it for a while, I am sorry for the lateness. Vote: 16-2-0, legislation passes. HershkowitzMotion to relinquish the chair. 2* Hubert X. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.48 Reserve Fund President SutherlandWe need to start working towards a reserve fund. We will put the money in a bank with the best interest rates. There will be an amendment to this bill as well. FarrellMotion to amendChange line 14 amount to $22,000, 2nd Hershkowitz. We are changing it down because we already took $5000 from 6501 to go to 6502 and if we take the full amount it leaves us with $3000 and we need that for auditing costs. President SutherlandThis leaves $3000 for 6501 after the auditing cost. We need to be working towards $125,000. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzHave we designated where the cash reserve is and how we are going to use it?

PAGE 107

President SutherlandIt is in a liability account and will be moved to a bank later to collect interest. This will happen in the next few days. HershkowitzMotion to amendChange wording in line 17-1 8, 2nd Belser. HubertWhat is the purpose to this amendment? HershkowitzIt is just for clarity, if the president didn't sign a bill it wouldn't contradict it. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes Motteven if this wasn't being mandated I think that it is a good idea to have this on hand. Vote on bill: 17-0-0, legislation passes. XI.

RES.40.05 Thank you Dan Preston(Resolution read by President Sutherland) FarrellI recently had a great conversation with Dan and it would have been great if I was given the chance to work with him. BrianneI have been very lucky to know Dan. HE is so passionate about what he does that he makes you care about different issues. You are inspiring and so successful. You have been a great director and an even better friend. Dan is always somewhere with a smile on. Greg LawsonI have a statement from Harry Shock that commends and thanks Dan for everything he has done. Dan is an amazing writer and many other things. I am glad that I have been able to work with him. If he is working on an important issue, he does research, more research, and then more research. If he feels confident he brings it to other people and then writes a resolution. To him it is all about action. He goes to the proper committee and gets things changed. I wish that I could follow more closely in his footsteps. He has brought forward a new philosophy on everything. He has attacked stereotypes, it would have been easy for him to sit back and live life, but he didn't, he is always doing something. He works toward achievement and changing things for the better. He is the most amazing student and leader that I have ever met. HershkowitzMotion to pass by acclimation, 2"d Mott. 6.) RES.40.06 Thank you Kristin Beck (Read by President Suther1and)Kristin and I have worked closely this year and I have learned a lot from her. I know things will work out for you in the future and you will go far. BrianneI was very shy when I met Kristin and she was one of the first people that I met here. I have worked closely with her and I have learned a lot from her. I know that things will work out for you in the future. Greg LawsonI have never met anyone who has challenged me like Kristin did. I met her in her first week at Oswego. She leads by example and puts in amazing dedication. You made being here worth it. Welcome to Emeritus. I am very proud of you. I was here for your 1" meeting, I wouldn't miss your last. HershkowitzKristin has been so dedicated to her position and work this year. She has done an outstanding job and there are just too many good

PAGE 108

things to say. Her meetings have been miraculously short and she will be greatly missed. RobinsonI will have so much pressure following Greg and Kristin in this position. Greg got me going on the online elections and Kristin pretty much told me that I was running for Vice President. You can really learn a lot from Kristin and Greg. HershkowitzMotion to pass by acclimation, 2nd Mapes. FarrellStudent Assembly is coming up April 15-17 this semester so please talk to me if you are interested in going. XII.

Approval of Minutes Motion to approve the minutesHershkowitz, 2"d Strum IV. Approval of Agenda Motion to approve the agendaRoberts, 2nd Beal V. Public Comment NYPIRG The NYS budget has been passed by the Assembly and the Senate with no increases but Pataki has proposed a $125 increase. Again this would be the students paying more but not getting more. If you would like to contact the Governor and voice your opinion on this issue the number is 5 18-474-8390. Our food drive was rescheduled last weekend because of the weather and it is tentatively planned for April 16". We are working on Earth Day projects and one thing that will be happening is a clean up of Glimmerglass lagoon. I want to touch on the editorial that was written in the Oswegonian because it was backed by so many of you. We do believe that it is important to get the correct information out there and let people know that we are funded by SA and we don't hd organizations. However, we held a chapter meeting in which about 20 people attended and when this rumor was brought up, no one had heard it which makes us question the prevalence of the rumor. Some students were outraged because their voter intelligence was questioned in the article. This year alone we have registered over 1300 voters, have done over 175 class presentations, had about 600 signatures for our higher education campaign, and have formed many coalitions. We have taught campaign tactics for the referendum and put in over 70 hours of volunteer services. With any of these events, people have to know who we are. We did get a lot of our voters on the referendum but because of the hard work that we did to get ourselves out there. There may be some people who don't know us but it is hard to say that the majority of people don't know who we are and what we do. Women's Center We have come tonight hoping that you will hear our budget appeal because we didn't get to it with enough time. We are appealing our income line because we are incapable of giving $1000 from the Vagina Monologues back to SA, it is in violation of the contract. It is where we get most of our money, we do have some smaller fundraisers throughout the year but they are minor and don't raise a lot of money. We feel that it isn't capable for us to pay back $1 000. Now touching on the resolution for tonight. This isn't about the author or about free speech, it is about the victims and survivors of date rape and/or assault. We hope that somehow something positive can come out of this resolution and that you as a student body will choose to voice your disapproval of joking about date rape. Author of Article

PAGE 111

The reason that I am here tonight is to definitively state that the purpose of my article was to use satire to raise awareness as to the growing culture of victimization that the intended date rape crisis fosters. I do not endorse date rape nor do I dislike efforts to prevent it. I have even participated in campus events concerning date rape and I have gone to a women's center workshop. All I'm trying to say is that the definition of date rape is a live issue and is hotly debated. The resolution coming up tonight is noble in its intent but one would be hard pressed to say that it is not a response to my satirical column. The senate is being asked to come together behind one of the two competing feminist theorie regarding date rape. Passing this resolution would freeze any opinion on campus that disagrees with the perspective on date rape that the women's center expounds, I just want you to see that the differing views are out there, I got the information for my column from a female feminist philosopher. Graduate Student from Education Department I believe that people need to feel safe in a college community and this article made me feel unsafe. I noticed something about the article; the e was left off of rape. This is satirical but not finny Compassion is also missing from this article. The first amendment has restrictions to free speech if it harms society and I think that this does. This article provided a venue for re-victimization. This campus supports and embraces differences and gives us a protective cover. The Oswegonian was doing very well with their articles until this year. There have been a la of articles that cause problems and bickering. I don't feel that SA should fund an organization that is willing to promote ignorance. Social Justice Club We have a bill in tonight for the Get Free Times. We would like to have a guest speaker come to the school. He is a social critic and a writer. He has written things such as Afluenza and The Vermont Manifesto. He is active in the 2nd Vermont Reuublic Movement. Our organization does know a lot about him and there has been a lot of interest shown in his coming. He is very different from our previous MSA speaker. This would be taking place on April 2~~ and we are expecting about 100 people to attend. We are asking you for $200 for his hotel, food, transportation, etc. He would normally go for about $1500. We had a feminist conference in Boston and we have two more that are coming up that we pay for out of pocket. Next week is going to be our film festival. Women's Center Response to Author of Article I heard that our use of Senate was questioned. A resolution is a formal report of what the senate feels and we don't want anyone to be punished for this but we do want a formal opinion so the student body knows that there is a voice for them. This also isn't a free speech issue. We give the author the benefit of the doubt that he meant it in a satirical manor and didn't mean to harm anyone but he wasn't effective in getting his point across because his article was so detailed and that is where our problem was. It is offensive and dangerous for this to go undebated. Maureen CurtinFaculty Advisor The fact is that date rape is against the law and there is no ambiguity about that. It took a long time to get this issue prosecuted. I am chair of PSTF so if you want to learn more and get involved feel free to come to the subcommittee meetings. Kevin Sutherland -This is the most people that I have ever seen in this room and I just wanted to say have fin and good luck with budget appeals! VI. Budget Appeals OTEA

PAGE 112

, Is at a conference and will not be able to present tonight, they want to know if they can present at finance committee or at next weeks meeting. Outing Club We missed our presentation time during budget committee. We are looking to increase our events fund. We are going to be doing White water rafting this year and that is $640 for 8 people; kayaking which is $768 for 8 people; rock climbing is $312 for 12 people; ice climbing is $640 for 8 people; we are also looking to get 3 more people first aid certified which is going to be $507 for 3 people. Overall for events we are asking for $2867. Our transportation costs are from rental cars and gas which comes to about $1390. Equipment is going to be $400. Copy and fax: $40. The outing club was pretty much nonfunctioning in 2002 and the club has grown greatly. We have our own room in the union and we take about 4 or 5 trips per semester. This is a good way to allow students to get out of Oswego. BacanskasHow long does the certification last? Outing clubI believe for 3 years. BacanskasAre the others returning that got certified last year? Outing ClubYes. Storytellers Guild We are going to be having our capstone event in about 2 weeks. It is Arcon and it is held in the union this year. This creates a safe environment. We have game developers, writers, authors, publishers, and more. We organize this event all year and it makes most of our income line. We also have the midnight trinity techno ball and spring dance. Minicon is held in Funelle Hall and we get together and play games and we do this to attract new members. We do take some trips within the local area. We also have a lending library with roll play books which are not cheap and we let anyone take them out. This is probably our greatest service utilized and provided. SAVAC Medical Supplies AccountEvery year about $4500 is a good estimate and every two years we have to pay $710 to get new medications. Our Training budget is necessary because we have a turnover rate of many officers this year. We also need 1" aid books and classes. When we go to conferences we go to gain experiences by talking to and hearing from other EMS groups. We have to pay for the travel, tickets, housing, etc. We have sent Public Relations representatives in the past and we are up to about 45 members now because of that. Rainbow Alliance Sorry that I am unprepared I had to fill in at last minute. We are appealing our events fund. During the year we do the National Coming Out Day t-shirts and we usually get about 2000 shirts. We have the drag ball that we do every year and get about 250 people to turnout. Next week is the day of silence and we think that we are going to have a large turnout for it. We are going to have Shawn Cassidy and possible WNYO at this event. We also experienced a cut in our videos account. We asked for an increase but it wasn't granted. It has been cut the past few years but these are important accounts because the books and videos that we have are hard to find and are expensive. They are also available for everyone. Men's Rugby We are appealing for 5 of our accounts. Game Costs: We are going to about 6 or 7 tournaments that have fees so we are asking for $400 more.

PAGE 113

Equipment and uniforms: We have an increase in the # of members and we are asking for a total of $1750. Transportation: We asked for $2700 and got $1000. We take 4 road trips in the fall and 4-6 in the spring which is about $200-300 a trip so we need at least $1 600-$250O. CIPP Membership: Every player must be registered with USA Rugby and we had about 20-30 players CIPPed in the spring. We usually estimate about 8 new people per semester so we anticipate that we will need to CIPP 36-46 people. We try to overshoot by about 2 people to be safe. Nancy Smithit was said before that the renewal was going to be $15-20, did that change? RugbyYes, we thought that was the cost but when I CIPPed someone this spring it was $20. Coaching Fees: We requested $1320 and we got $500. We always pay our coaches $500 per semester so we would need at least $1000 for the year. Del Sarte We are appealing to have a budget for the 2005-2006 year. For our show we need about $1600-$1700 for the Saturday rehearsal, Sunday rehearsal and show itself. We recently started charging for the show because we were dropped from Tier 3 status. Charging gets us about $1400 at $3 per ticket. Personally we have costume and video expenses. With the left over money we make fliers and have programs for our show. Our club has grown so much we have about 200 members now. Men's Ice Hockey We are appealing out transportation budget. We were given $6000 to use the school vans but I recently found out that we cannot use them. We looked over our options and decided that a bus is more practical than renting vans from Enterprise. We have a 30 game schedule and we are concerned with safety when we drive ourselves. The cost of gas, mileage, and personal fatigue takes a big toll. HershkowitzAre you planning to get school buses or charter buses? HockeyI believe they are charter buses. ChadaevHow much are you asking for now? HockeyWe are asking for about $1 1,000. Raquetball In a year we travel to 5 tournaments and we hope to attend nationals next year. In our travel account with 5 trips, it is $400. Hotel: 5 trips, $1600 Nationals: $2125.06 split in half with us. Personal expenses: $6 13 for equipment. Ontarian We have three major costs and right now we are trying to get back up and running. Publication costs $20,000 and we got $7000 which isn't even enough to make the first payment. Salaries: the editors put in countless hours of work on this project. The editor now is getting $500 but there are other editors and we need money for all of our postage. FarrellI was able tog et them money without changing any other organizations, I got it from contingency accounts. Cheerleading We are here to request $700 more for our coach payments. Right now he is pretty much paying to be our coach with all the traveling he does. We really want to keep him as our coach because it is important when we are in a time of reconstruction. COPE We offer many free activities on campus and we do some fundraising. Some of our events this year are going to be a yard sale, Krispie Kreme sale, and "Fight with Feathers, not Violence". The HIP program can also help us. Once a year we do mediation training and just for catering alone it costs us $400-500.

PAGE 114

During peace week we have speakers come in who cost us money. This year we want to have our banquet for 10" anniversary and that will be about $800. Nancy SmithAre you asking for the money for this year or next year? COPEFor next year. MottWhy don't you have a budget as of now? Nancy SmithThey didn't turn in a budget. MottWhy not? COPEWe are doing some restructuring in our board. Community Services We would like to either attend or present at the National Budget Conference. Our publicity fund went down to $200 and we need more than that to publish a newsletter, probably costs up to $800. For Mentor Oswego supplies we would like $250. Hershkowitz1 motion for WTOP to come down and present appeal. WTOP Postage: We were allocated $1 00 but we are requesting for $200 because we do need to return movies and send in equipment when it needs to be fixed. Telephone: We got $1000, but we are requesting $1500 because we deal with voicemail and many long distance calls to and from businesses. Equipment: We got $5000 but we are asking for $7000. We are going to be doing various productions and we want to replace the rest of the old equipment to go to the new campus center. Broadcast Operations: We got $7000, but we want $9500 for our day to day operations. We have to have a certain graphics program and a TVC which allows the old equipment to work with the new equipment. We are currently working on our image. We have increased membership. We are still learning our new equipment so please bear with us. VII. Executive Reports SA PresidentIan Farrell Tonight I have the appointments for directors. I handed out a packet that includes the job description, applications, and resumes. Pat Calahan is going for Director of Student Affairs; Justin Barber for director of off-campus services; Melissa Andrews for Director of Public Relations; and Allen Hershkowitz for Chief of Staff. We are going to go through a question answer period with them one at a time. (Questions for Calahan) HershkowitzWhat do you see your role as? CalahanI would like to help with the involvement fair, bowl-a-thon, and continue the library movies. HubertWhy do you want this position? CalahanI love politics and I need some experience. I want to improve the student body. (Questions for Barber) MottDo you plan to do anything different or new this year from last? BarberThis is my 3rd term and I am looking to get an assistant, I want to get a petition brought to the parking committee so that they can see that there are still issues with off-campus parking. ChadaevAre you confident that you can handle the responsibilities? BarberI haven't had a problem in the past, I can still keep up my achievement. RobertsWhat have you previously accomplished? BarberI redid the housing list from scratch and keep it updated. I am the only student to sit on the parking committee. I helped an org get started that dealt with off campus students but the club fell through. (questions for Andrews) HubertWhat do you hope to accomplish?

PAGE 115

AndrewsI want to increase membership in organizations and let people know that there is a director there to help them. MapesAre you going to be involved with elections and involvement committees? AndrewsYes, I am going to work with Andy Drogo and see what ideas he has left too. ArmalenoHow do you plan to inform students about SA? AndrewsI am going to do a lot of fliers and just get the word out there. (Questions for Strum) ChadaevWhat was your motivation for this position? StrumI was a sign language interpreter at home and I was very involved in activities like this in High School, I would like to continue my experience. (Questions for Hershkowitz) HubertWhy do you want this position? HershkowitzI want a chance to work with the executive branch so that organizations are fully informed and so that things run smoothly. ** These appointments will not take place until the end of the legislative session. ** Vote on Calahan for Director of Student Affairs15-0-1, approved Vote on Barber for Director of Off-Campus Services12-2-2, approved Vote on Andrews for Director of Public Relations15-0-1, approved Vote on Strum for Director or Disability Servieces14-0-2, approved Vote on Hershkowitz for Chief of Staff14-0-2, approved The past few days I have been attending a lot of meetings and a few on the new campus center. I have signed us up for a booth at the Admissions Open House and I would like people to work some time between 8:30-11:30. We also need to get things together for the booth. Student Assembly is next weekend I potentially have a meeting on the recreation center. Sorry about my office hours this week, meetings have been almost all day. They will be posted next week. In regards to JSU and the anti-Semitic remarks written on the signs of the new campus center, I will be meeting with Kathy Santos about it. JSU doesn't feel safe and their may be a resolution coming next week. Executive Agenda To increase the visibility on and off campus so that people know what we do. I want to go to our media outlets and I want people to know who I am. My e-board will always attend senate meetings and will be required to give weekly reports. The new director of public relations will be responsible for spreading word on the new logo, our services, and activities. Our reputation has been damaged with court cases and I would like to change that. I want to communicate with organizations and make sure that information is crystal clear so that there is no information lost or confused. I am still trying to get a representational body of organizations so that they can participate in the government process. They also need better inner organizational communication. Questions and concerns are always welcome so please come see me with issues. In regards to SAVAC, President Sutherland worked hard and they really do need a new garage and the construction for that will begin in the summer of 2006. I will see that the plans are going as planned and that we properly budget for this. They are also going to need money for an ambulance so we need to address that too. The NYPIRG issue seems to be continuing so I am going to come into the discussion and search for questions and answers. I ultimately want to create a contract for their needs and student needs. This is a topic that people are interested in so I am going to see what I can do with it. The campus center transition will change the face of SA. We will share an office with LEAD Center and SOS so we will be working closely with them. We must create a process of providing for one another and look out for our professional staff.

PAGE 116

SA Vice PresidentScott Robinson Dan's homework took me about 5 minutes to do and I would really like to see that you all have it done but I know that not everyone does. It is really good to do so if you have it, I'd like it. My offke hours will be set next week. Director of FinanceNancy Smith We will be interviewing potential people for the Director of Finance and we hope that they will be appointed by Tuesday. I will be amending the financial policy next week in a bill. There will be new procedures for organizations that have events off campus. Director of Off Campus ServicesJustin Barber There will be a parking committee meeting at 8am in the formal lounge. RobertsIs there any way that they can change that time? BarberIt is going to alternate each month from 8am to 3pm. VIII. Senator Issues Forum 0 BelserToday it was brought to my attention that there was an anti-Semitic message on the sign of the new campus center. It read "Zionism=Fascism and it stinks like Teri's rotting corpse." Many students now do not feel safe on this campus because of this. JSU members went to UP and found out that nothing could be done. One member of JSU has received threatening e-mails and IM's. This isn't the first time this semester that I have seen hate speech sprawled around campus. I bring this up now because we have a duty to make the student body aware that there is a problem which must be confronted and we must let the student body know that we will not tolerate hate in any of its ugly forms. When students no longer feel safe on this campus, I think that we have a serious issue that must not be swept under the rug. Thank you to President Farrell for responding to this immediately. Feel free to make suggestions on where this should go next. HubertI was walking by Penfield by the bus stop and there is also inappropriate speech written there and has been there for about a week. People who are giving tours can't explain something like that. WestfallJust so you know, Kathy Santos is the Director of Judicial Affairs. Motion to close: Hershkowitz, 2nd Mott IX. Committee Reports Policy: HershkowitzI nominate senator Chadaev for policy committee chair, 2nd Mott. Committee meeting times will remain the same. Procedure: We didn't meet last week and I don't know about a meeting for this week so I will send out an e-mail letting everyone know. Finance: We recommend SLE.40.49 as is and have amendments for SLE.40.50. I have e-mailed the changes that we made. With the budget appeals issues, they were given 4 business days to get their appeals done and usually they are given about 2 weeks so I would like to accept the appeals until the gth of April so that we are being fair to all organizations. I would like to meet quickly after senate tonight. WestfallHow are you going to get the word out to all the organizations that the deadline has been extended? MottI will make fliers. Nancy SmithThe or anizations were actually given 7 business days. I put something in their P mail boxes on the 24 of March. They should be given a week from their notification. Involvement: No report. Health and Safety: No report. Elections: We wrote a bill for the fall senator timeline. We will be meeting this week to go over the election law. CCRT: Erica went downtown with fliers and Jen Hill will be at next weeks meeting and they are setting up the softball game this week. MottMotion to nominate senator Chella to Involvement committee, 2nd Hubert.

XI. 1 General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.49 Finance Department Accounting ServicesMottThis is recommended by the committee to pass because they need money for the auditors. Nancy SmithAuxiliary Services and Watts negotiated a contract so that auxiliary services contracts with Watts to do the SA accounting records. We use auxiliary services as our on campus affiliation. Vote: 14-0-1, legislation passes 2,) SLE.40.50 Amendment to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyMottMotion to amend. Most of the amendments are grammatical fixes. (Refer to packet of changes). 2nd Hershkowitz. Vote on amendment: 14-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzThese changes were necessary, we needed to set guidelines for things involving internal control. Vote: 14-0-0, legislation passes 3.) VETO SLE.40.52 Social Justice Club's Get Free TimesFarrellI vetoed this bill because social justice had already paid for some of their issues and this was going to be more of a reimbursement. They are welcome to resubmit a bill. Vote: 0-12-2, legislation fails, veto stands. New Legislation 1 .) RES.40.07 Changing Campus Culture to End Dating ViolenceMottSince this wasn't on the agenda last night I was ready to object to it being added but since it has been added I have more to say. I feel that this is an issue over the article and it isn't out responsibility to respond to the issue of free speech. The Women's Center doesn't deserve favoritism from the Senate more than anyone else does. We shouldn't even have to vote on this issue. It is obvious that no one here supports date rape and I think there were other places to go with this like a letter to the editor. I feel like some of the senators are going to feel uncomfortable voting no and in that case it wouldn't be a fair vote so at least if you don't want to vote no, please abstain. McTiemanThis has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This just proves that date rape can be lightened and it shouldn't be. I disagree; I don't think that this can go unnoticed. HubertI concur with Senator Mott and I also believe that the original article was malicious toward rape. I believe that we should get everything out there and hear the different views. Even if you vote no, you won't be seen as someone who supports date rape. Women's Center(Brianne Cannon)The quote read by Senator Mott was irrelevant to this topic. The woman quoted supports this issue and this resolution. This isn't a feud with the author, we haven't spoken against him personally and this isn't retaliation. We are the voice of the victims and we are here to care about everyone. This is for the victims and survivors who heave dealt with this issue. When it's brought up if this is a legitimate body, you are the voice of the student body, I don't know where else you would want us to go. I would just want to know why you wouldn't want to support us if you aren't going to. (Speaker goes to Historian) I view this to be petty not to recognize something brought to you by 39 students. We would be addressing this issue regardless.(Bria~e Cannon) The senate can make something good of this and be active in stopping it if you support the protection of date rape. Point of information to Dr. ScharfenbergerIs this the appropriate place to bring this? Dr. ScharfenbergerResolutions are meant to show the opinion of the senate; I believe this is an appropriate place to bring this. Womens CenterWe have spoken with the editor of the Oswegonian and this is not an attack on the paper. It is just scary because the situations discussed in the article are probably what actually happen in a date rape situation. It is offensive to say that this isn't the appropriate for the senate. Every student that we have spoken to says that they were offended by that article in some way and were amazed that nothing had been done yet. Survivors need to feel safe speaking out. RobertsIn the Rights and Responsibilities of the students it says they have the freedom from personal violence. This comes very close to it and also close to a hate crime. There is no disclaimer in the paper saying that it is not the opinions of all of the writers; even the Get Free Times has a disclaimer. As an opinion writer for the Oswegoninan, I couldn't print some of the things that I wanted to print. The author of this article is paid by SA money.

PAGE 118

0 WestfallMotion to amend line 35. You can only represent what the senate feels not all of the students. 2nd Hershkowitz. 0 President FarrellPlease stay on the issue we don't want any personal attacks and vote with your conscience. HershkowitzI concur with President Farrell. The resolution isn't to single out the author, it is not about free speech, the resolution is saying that senate doesn't condone making fun of date rape and using "date rap" as an example of making fun of date rape. The Oswegonian has every right to print what they want and it should contain a disclaimer but it doesn't have to. If one person was offended or victimized by this article then we have the right to hear their issue. We do need to watch what we say and not pinpoint people. This is the opinion of the senate alone and I would think that we wouldn't condone making fun of anyone for anything. MapesYield to BelserIf this were an issue of free speech or an attack on the author I would be against it. We are taking a stand that rape is not a joke. I have been close with someone who experienced date rape and I can tell you that it doesn't stop with the victim; it goes into the family as well. Passing a resolution is a trivial thing for me, sexual assault isn't funny. HubertI feel that the resolution goes further than we would like it to. In his article he is trying to raise awareness in a comedic way. I would like to take that part out of the resolution where he is mentioned. So we will be striking 2nd 3rd7 be it further resolved, be it finally resolved. 2nd Mott. MottI think that this is a good resolution. His point was not to make fun of rape. It is an honest debate about the definition of date rape. It misrepresents the point of the article, no one here would want to support date rape. Herskowitz: Motion to move, 2nd Mapes Back to Order 10:08 MottThe women's center tried to say that they wouldn't take the course of writing a letter to the editor. He has always printed articles that are in opposition to his comments. There is no reason that they couldn't write a letter to the editor. Beckyield to Women's CenterWhen we wrote a letter to the editor about take back the night I didn't give it to Mr. Olenick, I gave it to the Editor in Chief. They assured me that it wouldn't be tampered with. The whereas's in the resolution are meant to say why you are doing something. This gives you the information on where we got our background and it will be better for your historian. HershkowitzIf we amend anything I think that this one goes too far. This is an opinion of what we want to happen and this amendment guts the resolution. MapesIf we were to amend it, we would also need to amend the further resolved. We are discussing a resolution on date rape, don't make it personal. BacanskasI don't agree with how the amendment guts the bill, I have another amendment. HubertThe amendment is a lot but it still says a lot on its own and it's not giving any other sources. MapesI am going to vote no for this, it defeats the purpose of the resolution. Vote on amendment: 1-13-0, amendment fails. 0 MottYou say that it isn't personal but by putting only one example in the resolution it makes it personal. BeckYield to Brianne CannonYou shouldn't be afraid to make a stand. I was advised that this was the best course of action and I am glad that we have this dialog. Think of your constituents and satires in general about date rape. BackanskasMotion to amendline 7-10 "jokes, satires, and mockeries making light of dating violence.. .." 2nd Hershkowitz. BeckYield to Women's CenterWhat is the reason for taking out the example, it is an important part of the resolution. We aren't asking for a course of action. BacanskasI think that some of us are uncomfortable using that as an example. We said media so that some time the TV station doesn't do it as well. It makes me feel better about voting yes. Women's Center1 feel that people would vote the same with or without the example in there. BacanskasIndirectly it goes back to the author no matter what and we don't want to do that.

PAGE 119

Women's CenterWhen you publish something you should be held accountable. This isn't a personal attack but you need an example to look back on. BarraThis amendment doesn't want to refer to one media or one specific example. It just makes a more general reference to jokes. MapesI think that it makes the resolution more general and less personal, it will be easier to vote on. WardI concur with senators Mapes, Barra, and Bacanskas, my comfort level is now at ease. ChadaevI think that we should stop deliberating and move things along. HershkowitzYield to Brianne CannonYou don't create a resolution without a call to reason. You need a call for action. This itself is the challenge; I don't mean to take force. If you are committed against satires, this would be the one to speak out about. This is the catalyst that formed it and it needs to be addressed. BacanskasI agree but I think that it will help to get the resolution passed, it just wont have a direct example. Women's CenterThe whereas's the most specific, they are the explanation and are fairly general. BeckI think that everyone has formed their opinions by now. I think that the amendment is a compromise and that the resolution is still strong without it. HubertMotion to vote on amendment, 2nd Bacanskas. Vote on amendment: 11-3-0, amendment passes. HershkowitzMotion to end discussion at 10:45 and limit speaking time to 1 minute. 2nd Ward. MapesMotion to vote, 2nd Ward Vote on legislation: 13-0-1, legislation passes. 2.)

Public Comment NYPIRG Thursday we are going to be celebrating Earth Day in the Quad and Saturday we are going to be cleaning up Glimmerglass Lagoon at noon. Sunday we are doing our food drive at P&C. Frisbee Club As far as our equipment goes, we have nothing. If we do practice, someone needs to bring a frisbee of their own. We are going to be competing next year and we are hoping to get funding for t-shirts and frisbees. HershkowitzWhere are you going to be competing? Frisbee ClubIn Binghamton and other schools around here. Executive Report SA President: Ian Farrell Matt Wioneck is here tonight and is going for the webmaster position. (Floor to Matt)I am an information science major and I have designed websites such as the rock the vote website and some for other organizations. HershkowitzWhy do you want this position? WioneckI think that it would be good for my resume and I think that I could bring a lot to the position. RobertsWhat did you do for rock the vote? WioneckI designed the layout and updated their website. Vote on position: 18-0-1, approved. Next week I am hopefully going to be appointing the director of finance and the human resource management director. If you want to see the changes I have made in the budget come to the finance meeting. Right now there is going to be a $1 SO increase in full time students. This week I had a meeting with Dr.Scharfenberger about the budget, met with auxiliary services, and NYPIRG about the contract. Coming up I have meetings with Cynthia Donovan, Richard Hughes, Mike Pastella, and President Stanley. We are going to have an e-board meeting this Thursday at 7:30.

I met with Cathy Santos and she is equally concerned with the graffiti issue. She also needs students for some boards and committees. There is a parking committee meeting tomorrow at 8am. They want students to go so if you have a problem they are ready to listen. Thank you to the open house volunteers. Student Assembly is this weekend and there is one more spot open that is paid for so if you are interested let me know. The LSU bill is on special orders because it is rather important that I get this taken care of and it is only a transfer of money not asking for money from us. My office hours will be regulated soon probably by the end of next week. Vice President: Scott Robinson I commend everyone for last weeks meeting, it was long and painful but everyone had good points to make. We just need to be sure that things don't get personal in the meetings. The resolution was to say that you don't support date rape and with the amendment you did that. Just be careful if you are going to sign on to something that has been written for the Oswegonian. Your name doesn't have to go on it if you don't want it to. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith I have handed out the senate account updates. The Director of Finance appointment will hopefully be next Tuesday. So far you have passed 28 legislations. There are deposits in the accounts fiom Arts Alive and from Cheerleading because they were both unable to attend the events that we were funding. Director of Off-Campus affairsJustin Barbur In SLE.40.58 I would just like you to look at the word "participate" and please define it further for the off campus section of it. Parking committee meeting is tomorrow at Sam. VII. Senator Issues Forum BelserThe social justice club bill was not done on time for tonight's agenda and I was wondering if I could get it referred to finance for 1 week because the bill is done now. (no objections, bill referred to finance for one week). BacanskasI need one more member for the Health and Safety committee. HershkowitzMotion to nominate Senator Doherty, 2nd Belser. (Position accepted). HubertThe graffiti that was near Penfield has been cleaned up. Also, SAPB may not be able to compensate for the minimum wage increase and they were concerned about that. WestfallMonday at faculty assembly we are going to be voting on the college hour so student attendance is important to us. HershkowitzAre the voting on the final proposal or the idea of it? WestfallIt is on the projected time given. Motion to close: Mapes, 2nd Hubert VIII. Committee Reports Policv: We didn't meet last week, we will meet Thursday at 7 in the cafe. Procedure: We would like to refer the bill that we have been working on for 2 weeks, there are problems with the latest bill that we are trying to work out. Finance: We recommend the social justice club bill because it is coming fiom 6506; we recommend the paintball bill with amendments. Involvement: We meet next Wednesday at 9 in the SA offke.

CCRT: I met with Jen Hill and we are going to do the softball game and are planning a pizza party for the last meeting. She will be at our meeting next week. IX. Special Orders C 1 .)

SLE.40.5 1 2005-2006 Budget: HershkowtizMotion to re-refer for one more week because we just got more appeals and we have a few things to adjust. 2nd Ward. 2.) SLE.40.53 Paintball Club Jerseys: HubertMotion to amend, we cut their total price down to $440 so that they can get enough jerseys for the amount of people that are playing at one time. Paintball ClubWe play against other teams and we have proved to be very skilled. We need jerseys for tournaments and we want them to have Oswego colors and have player's names on the back. We have about 20 tournament players and about 40 recreational players and they all want jerseys. People recognize a college by their jerseys. SwennsonDo you play indoor or outdoor? Paintball ClubWe play both it really depends on the weather. The tournaments are indoors. SwennsonIs it a full tough jersey that you are looking to get? Paintball ClubYes, it is what you wear as a top completely. It is a personal item with your name on it. SwennsonThese jerseys are going to serve as protection to them. Paintball ClubWe would wear the jerseys at the involvement fair and at booths that we have. SwennsonHow many members did you have last year? Paintball ClubWe had about 40 last year and have 60 now. We have an e-mail list of about 200 though. Director SmithI was under the impression that jerseys were something that could be left within the club and now you are saying that they would be personal items. Paintball ClubThey wouldn't be passed down, it is just not done in this sport, they take too much wear and tear. Director SmithUsually if you are getting jerseys we require you to pay half and then have them stay within the organization. Paintball ClubThe reason that we don't have these yet for ourselves is because of the cost. Some people are able to get sponsored but not everyone. Director SmithThis would be seen as using SA money to pay for personal items. Paintball ClubMost of our items that we have and buy are disposable anyway. We spend most of our money on paint or free play days and I feel like jerseys would be similar to that. Jerseys last for 3-4 years which is how long someone is in the club if they join as a sophomore or a freshmen. HershkowitzThe concern here is that SA just doesn't have a lot of money right now and we were under the impression that these jerseys could be swapped. We also didn't know that you wanted to put names on the jerseys because that may cost more. At least with the money we are giving you, you could get some jerseys for now. Paintball ClubWe have done some fundraising but we usually donate what we raise. Most people who participate in the club want a jersey. To screen print the name on the back is about the same cost as not. You just don't see teams that swap jerseys. HershkowitzThe concern is that you will be keeping them personally. Paintball ClubWe planned on buying 10 blank jerseys that could be personalized by players later. HershkowitzMaybe for now you can order all blank jerseys. Paintball ClubIf we buy blank jerseys now and have them personalized later it is going to cost us a lot more. President FarrellThe financial policy says that we cannot fund you and allow you to keep them. We could only allow it if we drop the cost by half. StrumHow much is it for a jersey? Paintball ClubThey are about $65. ChadaevCould you order generic jerseys and then get stickers that could be removed later? Paintball ClubWe are not allowed to have any kind of stickers on out jerseys for play and by the time you were to take the name off, the jersey wouldn't be worth passing down.

PAGE 124

HubertWe aren't able to fund you the full amount. We suggest that you buy 16 jerseys for now and we will pay half the cost and you can do what you want with them. Motion to amend line 12 from $2000 to $440,2"* Ward. HershkowitzI concur with senator Hubert, this will be a good start for them. Vote on amendment: 15-1-2, amendment passes. HubertIt is close to the end of the year this will be a good start for you, you can always put a bill in next semester. Vote on bill: 16-0-2, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.54 Fall 2005 Elections: MapesThe dates are spread out so it gives people enough time to run if they want to. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.55 Social Justice Club's Get Free Times: RobertsWe have paid for the past few weeks out of pocket and for this year we want just 2 more issues. We are asking for exactly the amount that we need. Vote on bill: 16-0-2, legislation passes. XI. New Legislation 1 .) SLE.40.57 Frisbee ClubRefer to finance for 1 week. 2.)

Motion to approve the agenda: Belser, 2nd Ward Public Comment NYPIRG We have recently had a huge victory on the higher ed campaign. There are no tuition hikes and there is actually an increase in SUNY's budget. The reason that there were no increases was due to all of the student action on this issue. Last weekend we did the lakeshore cleanup around Glimmerglass Lagoon and we also had our cram-a-car food drive on Sunday. The reform Albany lobby day is coming up soon as well. Also, the state board elections are coming up, voting will be the 25"-27". Phi Beta Lambda We are requesting money for the national conference that we wish to attend. We recently went to the state conference and did very well. The bill is for $1640 so that we can send enough people for the conference. Frisbee Club We have now been operating for three semesters and we have had no funding. We are now asking for $100 for Frisbees and $300 for t-shirts so that we have matching jerseys when we compete next year. Kevin Sutherland The weather has been awesome but it is supposed to rain soon. Don't worry, May will be better. Enjoy your meeting! Executive Report SA PresidentIan Farrell Tonight I have Sean Green here for the Human Resources Manager position and Matt Andino for the Supreme Court. (Sean Green) I would like to set up a standard for hiring in these SA positions and have a set a job description for them. I am willing to take on anything. HershkowitzWhy do you think you are qualified for this position? Sean GreenI am a Human Resource major and I have completed most of the requirements and I have also helped with the hiring process of DA's. Vote: 16-01, approved (Matt Andino) I am a junior public justice major. I want this position because I think that it would be a good resume builder and learning experience for me. I am going to go to law school and I hope to be a judge.

PAGE 3

HershkowitzDo you have any legal experience? Matt AndinoI have an internship this summer with the DA office. Vote: 16-0-1, approved Next week I will have other appointments for the Director of Finance, assistants, and academic affairs. I have had meetings this week with Mike Paestella, Richard Hughes about the campus center, President Stanley and Joe Grant about my position in SA, Sally Wilkinson and SHAC about raising health insurance fees. I have upcoming meetings about the Ontarian, the campus center, and LSU. Student Assembly was this past weekend and the networking with other SA's was very useful. They elected the new offices for Student Assembly as well. I have an amendment to the financial policy. Right now it says that an hourly worker cannot hold a stipend position. We are going to allow it for this year and create interest in those jobs. I have a meeting with Jeny Desantis about the SAVAC garage I am also still working on the NYPIRG contract. Vice PresidentScott Robinson Student assembly was fun; the business meeting was pretty rough. I talked to other schools about online voting. Cortland passed their budget in 5 minutes; let's see if we can beat that. I recommend that if you have the opportunity and plan on being a senator again, that you go to student assembly. Student Involvement Awards will be held on the 27' at 5 pm, I hope to see everyone there. Director of Finance: Nancy Smith There is going to be an amendment on internal controls. I have a job interview in NYC tomorrow and I will return on Friday so I would recommend that finance committee meet on Friday or over the weekend so that I can get updates. Director of Student Affairs: Pat Callahan I recently met with Mike Paestella about the involvement fair and we are going to have two of them. The bigger one will be September 7h and we are hoping to get popcorn or cotton candy to have at the fair. We will also need 20-30 volunteers to help set up and take down. I also had a meeting with the Director of Penfield Library about the SA videos. VII. Senator Issues Forum ChadaevThere was some miscommunication on the committee meeting time. It is at 7pm in the library caf6. MottI have been meeting with Mike Flaherty about getting dental and eye coverage on the insurance policy. Please bring this up in your hall councils and see if people would be interested in these options. I will send out an e-mail with the adjusted costs if they are added. WardStudent Assembly was a great experience and I encourage you to go next year. The workshops are informative. WestfallOn Monday the Faculty Assembly postponed the action on college hour.

Monday at 6 is the town meeting and I recommend people to attend. IX. General Orders 1 .) SLE.40.57 Frisbee Club: MottMotion to amendWe didn't have the exact numbers from them for the cost of shirts and Frisbees but we cut the amount in half to $200. Strike lines 1417 so that they can choose how to split up the money. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes Vote: 16-0-1, legislation passes 2.) SLE.40.51 2005-2006 Budget: Mott: The first amendment is to change the SA fee increase to $2.00 because the rest of the budget is depending on that. BelserI think that this amendment is necessary. It is a minimal increase and it is going to keep SA going in all of the funding that they do. HershkowitzI talked to my hall council and there wasn't any opposition to this increase. MottPeople that I asked said that they wouldn't even notice the increase because they don't know what they pay now. RobertsOnline the SA fee says $82 is that going to be a problem? NancyThat is just a projected price but I will get it changed.

President FarrellThey don't have anyone for that position. HUBACI wanted to move them under SAPB because they do pretty much the same things but there were a lot of logistic problems with that. For now we are keeping them under a separate organization with the same amount. NYPIRGJust moved them to a different place in the budget. CDRaised that to $5000. Tier 2 hndingChanged it to $3 1,000 and the other $5000 went towards the Ontarian and the cash reserve. RobertsHow many Tier 2 organizations are there for next year? Director SmithThere is a small increase in the number but many of the big ones from last year moved up to Tier 3 again. HershkowitzLast year we increased the Tier 2 funding and we were fine with it, I think that it will be fine this year too. 2nd to all amendments: Hershkowitz HershkowitzMost of the organizations that asked got increases. I agree that the Ontarian should stay around for this year to give it a chance. President FarrellThe total income is different from the total spending, is that a problem? Director SmithWe need to decrease the spending by $1000.47. HershkowitzI think that we should take it out now and fix it. President FarrellI think that we should take it from the cash reserve and $.47 from the Organizational contingency.

This past weekend we went to the House of Mercy in Rochester and did serve-a-meal with Habitat for Humanity. Coming up we have our board elections and voting will be in the Union. Guests of the Senate Mayor Gosek and representatives fiom Mayor's office. Executive Report SA President: Ian Farrell Tonight I have Jim Middleton here who is going to be the assistant Director of Disability Affairs. (Floor goes to Jim Middleton) I came to this position because Dan Preston approached me and said that I would bring a unique perspective to the position. I don't know much about it but I will do the best that I can in this position. It was a big adjustment coming to this campus and I have been told that I handled it admirably well. I know that I will need a lot of help in this position but I will do the job the best that I can. HershkowitzWhat is your major? Jim MiddletonI am a business administration major and will be doing human resource management. (Ian Farrell) Also tonight I have Dan Tuscarella for Director of Finance and Kristin Beck for Director of Academic Affairs. Dan will be here later he had a class confliction. (Floor goes to Kristin Beck) Ian approached me about this position and I feel like I bring a lot of knowledge to this position because of my previous experience in SA. I am looking forward to doing this job. Vote: 17-01, approved This week's meetings: I met with Michelle about the yearbook and I wasn't aware of their Jonstens contract so I need to review it. I also met with Dr. Scharfenberger about different SA issues. Meetings that I have coming up include one on campus center arena, faculty assembly, SAVAC, SAPB & HUBAC. Congratulations to the senate for getting the budget passed so quickly.

PAGE 8

There is legislation for an account transfer because I am helping SAPB pay for May Day food. Good luck to those senators that are not going to be returning and to those that are, I will need you contact information so that I can update you about the involvement fair. Vice President, Scott Robinson There is a resolution tonight for Professor Harrigan because he is going to be leaving after the school year. He is an awesome teacher; he challenges me a lot and his papers are a great learning experience. I hope that you will pass the resolution. The student involvement awards are tomorrow. I went to the city council meeting and I think that CCRT is very crucial. I was just wondering what is going to be done to keep it going? Mayor Gosek Traditionally we are involved much sooner in the year and I think that things can be dealt with sooner now that we have worked some things out. The Greater Chamber of Commerce is now involved and I think that they can bring more business in. CCRT was started in the 70's and has been up and down since then. It's original mission was to create a better relationship between the city and the University. I have tried to promote that relationship and if you have any suggestions on how to continue that I would love to hear your ideas. We have some funding available for CCRT and I will be increasing it for next year. We have had many paid and unpaid interns and that helps people get informed on how the city runs. It is hard for our people to do all of the work because they are doing full time jobs as well. We would love your input on how we can make this work. Jen Hill I have been told that the students don't feel welcomed by the businesses in town and I would like to change that. I want to see people working with the city so that businesses become more welcoming. My goal is to be more involved in that and get you more involved in that. MapesDo you have any ideas on how we can keep an easy going structure to out meetings like yours? Mayor Gosek We address most of our issues and debate them in committee meetings. The meeting is common council is to talk about the results of the meetings. It appears that our meetings run smoothly, but the committee meetings can be long and drawn out. We have many committees at the city level that research and debate the topics and them bring them to the floor at the meeting. Jen Hill The issues themselves are solved at a committee level and by the time that it gets to the floor it is more of a notification process. Smaller groups help for presentation purposes. Also, if you know who will be the chair of CCRT next year make sure that they are well informed and can get things going early. BelserWhat is the city doing to bring jobs to the area to keep grads around? Mayor Gosek I want to create more full time jobs and so far I have created a business friendly environment. The atmosphere that existed was anything but business friendly. Ruby Tuesday, Lowes, and Dunkin Donuts are some businesses that have created jobs and there were jobs created when there needed to be water lines and traffic lights put in at these locations. Many management positions are available at these places. Small business is the backbone of this country. The nuclear industry has done well in Oswego County and I would like to bring more nuclear power to this area. You have to be proactive in a situation like this. Elective officers should be positive about the community and be proactive to help it. We will be happy to listen if any students have ideas because without this college, we would be in dire straights. It helps a lot to prosper the economy. Jen Hill This community has many small businesses but we are very entrepreneur friendly. There is a young professional's organization that is starting. We are assessing what we have and where we need to work. It is a misunderstanding to think that we don't want grads to stay in the area.

PAGE 9

0 MottIs there still the idea of building windmills for power? Jen Hill That is still a possibility and it is in the research stage. The problem with wind power is the number if mills needed and the space that we have available. Mayor Gosek John Smith from Cape Cod was responsible for the research and idea of using wind mills in Cape Cod but his ideas were rejected. The next place that he came was to Oswego. His efforts were to bring off-shore windmills and we are still working with him on his ideas. It is expensive but it is still in the works. We have talked about a center for research on power for the area. We are trying to stay on top of the issue the best we can. (Back to President Farrell and Dan Tuscarella) I am a junior going for my MBA in accounting and I have worked at OCNB and I was Kevin's Chief of Staff. HershkowitzWhy do you want this position and why are you qualified? Dan TuscarellaI have learned a lot about SA in the past year or so and I have a lot of past experiences with Banks, etc. HershkowitzAre you prepared to put in the hours that are required for this position? Dan TuscarellaYes, I have cleared my hours at the bank and I will have the time to put in. Vote: 17-0-1, approved. Director of Finance, Nancy Smith Than you to the senate for passing the budget. An update on the accounts: 6501-$3375.22,6502$4436.00,6505$270.21,6506$90. There is a bill tonight with internal controls amendments and this is required by the SUNY Board of Trustees that we guard or assets and there is an amendment for petty cash. Director of Student AffairsPat Calaghan I met with the library about the SA DVDYs and they want to continue that. They would also like to have us purchase Discmans for people to use in the library. The involvement fair is going to be September 7". Director of Off-Campus AffairsJustin Barbur I really hope that you pass the resolution for Professor Harrigan. I would also like to thank Andy Drogo for all of his help this year. Director of Human Resource ManagementSean Green I will be meeting with Cynthia this week and I will have a report on that meeting. Director of Academic AffairsKristin Beck I just wanted to talk to you about some of the ideas that I have for next year. I would really like to improve the student advisement center, I was a peer advisor and I just think that its very important. I would also like to bring back the course satisfactionldescription book. We ask professors to give a description of the class and then get some feedback from the students. I would like to help promote the book exchange service between students. Does anyone have any other ideas? HershkowitzMaybe get some information on the SUNY Assessment. Kevin SutherlandLook into other grad programs that the school could offer. Bacanskasthe possibility of a 24 hour computer lab somewhere on campus. WardMore research programs for other majors. VIII. Senator Issues Forum HershkowitzThis is my last meeting as a senator and I have had a blast. Thank you to everyone from this year for making it that way. RobertsI would like to thank Allen for all of his hard work. I also support the passing of the Professor Harrigan resolution. He is the best teacher I have had. BacanskasI would also like to thank Allen, he is the one who got me involved and I am very glad that I did. Motion to close: Mapes, 2nd Belser

IX. Committee Reports Policy: We met Thursday and we went over the projects for next year and the appointments procedure. Procedure: We met on Thursday and made amendments to the senator rights and responsibilities. The amendment just narrows it down. Finance: We met on Monday and for SLE.40.59 we voted to recommend with an amendment, for SLE.40.60 we recommend, SLE.40.61 we have minor amendments, SLE.40.64 we recommend. We also talked about the reserve and putting money aside for the campus center. Involvement: Thank you to the committee; hope to see some of you next year. Elections: Thank you to the committee and this summer we are going to work to get the election law revised. Health and Safety: Thank you to the committee, have a good summer. CCRT: I think that it is very important to have city reps here tonight. The student relationship with the residents and the relationship with our government and the city's are very important. Next year I would like to have a committee instead of their only being on representative. Thank you for those of you who came to the pizza party tonight. We are going to be playing softball at Legends field at 5:30 on Thursday and the rain date is next Thursday. Thank you to Senator Mapes, Senator Bacanskas and Vice President Robinson for attending the city meeting. (Bacanskas) The meeting was very interesting and everything was very quick to pass. They have good communication and that is something that should be maintained. X. General Orders 1.) SLE.40.58 Senator DutiesHershkowitzMotion to amendin section 10, we changed must to should and in section 11 we added bi-weekly for the participation in the online journal. We are going to try it with these changes and see how it goes, we can always change things later. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 17-0-0, amendment passes HershkowitzWe redefined the senator at large and gave them responsibilities and also some for the off-campus senators. We are going to see how this goes and change it later if necessary. DurginMotion to amendAdd section 12 to say that off-campus senators should participate in CCRT as designated by the chair. 2nd Mott. HershkowitzMy concern with this is why are you keeping it just off campus senators and should that change go under the structure bill? Maybe we should update the CCRT part before we amend this. I don't know if the chair has the power over the senators. DurginI chose off campus senators now because they are a minority and if it is mandatory then it can go as far as we want it to. I just want participation in some way. HershkowitzCCRT right now doesn't have members in its structure. MottI think that it is good because it is outlining duties of off campus senators. KinnearI have no objection to this amendment but I think that you do need to change the committee structure. RobertsWhat if it is recommended that they participate? BacanskasI think that you will have to rewrite the structure of the committee. HershkowitzStrike "by the chair" as a friendly amendment. DurginIt is still their discretion either way. Vote on amendment: 17-1-0, amendment passes. Vote on bill: 18-0-0, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.59 Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership ConferenceHubertwe amended the bill by adding a breakdown of the bill. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 17-0-1, amendment passes Representative from Phi Beta LambdaWe have many people interested in going to this conference. Our organization isn't that well known and if we went it would get recognition for the college and for us. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.60 Amendment to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyPresident FanellWe are taking a section out because student services is having problems filling all of their positions. HubertI think that this is appropriate.

PAGE 11

MottI hope that there is more work done next year to get more students for the jobs. ScharfenbergerHistorically we try to extend information to students to get them interested. HershkowitzWe want to repeal this because it has an affect on the student services. Director SmithI asked Andy to make more appealing fliers and I think that they are necessary for people to be interested in the jobs. I request that it go back into the financial policy after this year. President FarrellI intend on promoting the jobs to freshmen as well and going to the employment office to see what they can do. We don't know if we have enough time now to fill the positions before next year. McTiernanIt seems that the main problem was not enough promotion. HubertThis is repealing something that can be put back in at a later time. It is not final if we take it out now. HershkowitzI yield to Jen ClarkI receive two paychecks from SA because I am a manager and I work an hourly position. It isn't really in mine or Cindy's duties to promote these jobs and we are both really busy. If someone is unable to work and I cant cover for them, Cindy has to take the shift and then gets behind on her work. This needs to get passed right now and I think that promoting it will be good for next year. President FarrellMy intention is to put this back and it is Sean and Melissa's job to get these jobs promoted and I know they will work on that. I just want to take this out for now. McTiernanSo this is definitely going to go back in next year? President FarrellYes, as soon as the positions are filled it will go back in. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 4.) SLE.40.6 1 Amendment #2 to SLE.36.27 Financial PolicyDirector SmithIt is required that we have internal control guidelines. Everything stated in the amendment are things that we need. HubertMotion to amendWe just made some spelling changes and took out Robert's Rules and added the definition of petty cash. 2nd Ward. Vote on amendment: 16-0-1, amendment passes. Vote on bill: 16-0-1, legislation passes. 5.) SLE.40.62 Combination of Senate FundsHershkowitzThis is something that we do every year and it makes it easier to have all of the money in one account. HubertFriendly amendment, 6503 should be 6506. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. XI. Special Orders 1 .)SLE.40.63 Executive Account TransferPresident FarrellSAPB is running out of money and they asked me to help them out with food for may day so I am going to give them $1750 and $1250 of that is coming from account 5607. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 2.) SLE.40.64 SAPB May DayMottThis is for the extra $500 that is out of 6502. WestfallChange "for'' to "to" SAPB. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. 3.) SLE.40.65 Reserve FundMottWe have $6000 remaining so this one will stay at $4000 and a new campus CS could be an option for the other $2000. Vote on bill: 17-0-1, legislation passes. XII. New Legislation 1 .) RES.40.08 Thank you Andy Drogo BeckAndy has really helped me a lot this year and he was a great asset to the e-board.

I wish you the best of luck. SutherlandI appreciate all of your help with the budget. I attribute the speed at which the budget was passed to you because it was done so well. BeckJen is one of the most motivated off-campus senators and she is very deserving of this. RobertsThank for setting the bar so high and sliding in the last second bills. DrogoHer heart and motivation are really great. She made some great changes this year and she really makes other people care too. HubertShe has done wonderful things and I have learned a lot from her. Thank you. WardIt was very nice to work with Jen this year, she hade the financial process very expedient. Vice President RobinsonIt was an honor working with you and you did really great things. Director SmithThank you for yow hard work this year and being a person who really speaks their mind.

Motion to pass by acclimation: Belser, 2nd Ward. 3.) RES.40.10 Thank you Nancy Smith SutherlandI have seen Nancy grow so much this year.

Motion to pass by acclimation: Hershkowitz, 2"d Ward. 4.) RES.40.11 Thank you Professor James Harrigan Vice President RobinsonI will present this to him tomorrow if it is passed. KinnearHe is one of the best professors I have had. I learned a lot from him and I got to know him personally. BacanskasHe is the very first professor that I had here and he is by far my favorite. He opens people eyes to every differing view. It is a shame that he is leaving this campus. SutherlandI actually have a paper due for him. I am also very disappointed that he wasn't chosen to stay. If you had the chance to have him then you are fortunate and if you didn't then please understand where we are coming from. BelserHe wasn't always politically correct but he does always have a contrary point of view and I never even had him. RobertsHe is by far the best professor that I have had at teaching how to argue. We always end up having long discussions and he will always shut me down. He tells you how to argue correctly. Motion to pass by acclimation: Roberts, 2nd Belser. WardIt has been a pleasure working with all of you this year. I will not be back next year because I am going to be an RA.

Student Association Internal Control Res~onsibilities State University of New York at Oswego Student Association's system of internal control integrates the activities, plans, attitudes, policies, skills, and efforts of its employees working together to provide reasonable assurance that the Student Association will achieve its objectives and mission. The effectiveness of the Student Association system of internal control in assuring the achievement of goals depends on articulating and communicating Student Association's mission and objectives to employees as well as providing employees with the direction and information that allow them to understand their individual responsibilities and priorities and how they relate to that mission. Essentially, they need to know what the Student Association's goal are, what the Student Association expects of them in their position and the appropriate means for achieving it, and how their performance will be measure and evaluated. Student Association has established an organizational structure and a system of policies, procedures and internal controls intended to govern the effective conduct of Student Association business and protect its assets from loss due to wasteful practices, fraud, and abuse. There are a number of key documents that contain policies, procedures, and practices that govern the operation and conduct of Student Association and its employees. Taken together, these documents are an integral part of the internal control system that governs the executive, legislative, judicial branches of Student Association. *Policies of the Board of Trusties of SUNY Oswego *Student Association Constitution *Student Association Financial Policy *Robert Rules Creating an effective internal control system requires taking steps in many areas. Authorization and Approval The Student Association Director of Finance is the Chief Financial Officer of the Student Association. The duties of the Director of Finance include: Keep and maintain any and all financial records of the Student Association Execute, direct, update and maintain all financial policies and financial programs of the Student Association Present financial reports to the Student Association Senate Serve as a chair of Budget Council Monitor all expenditures of the Student Association Prepare for the Student Association annual audit that is required by the SUNY Board Trustee policy

The Director of Finance must approve the transfer of funds within an organization under $300.00. The Senate must approve transfers within an organization of $300.00 or more. Approved transfers are implemented by the Director of Finance. The Student Association Senate may amend financial bills. Purchase orders for amounts greater than or equal to $1500 must have the signatures of both the Director of Finance and Student Association President prior to being approved by the college official, with the exception of payroll expenditures. Documentation and Accurate Recording The Student Association is responsible for the disbursement of the Student Activity Fee.

Cash Disbursements *Incoming vendor invoices are forwarded to the Finance Manager who checks the invoice for addition and extension errors and them forwards them to the Director of Finance for approval. *A purchase order is used to document approval of the invoice, account distribution, the date it was paid, and the check number. *The approved invoice is returned to the accountant for preparation of the check. *The Director of Finance or Finance Manager approving the invoice reviews them to confirm the charges are legitimate and should initial the invoice to approve it for payment.
