Page 2 XV. Becoming an Student Association Organization A. Submitting a Constitution & Becoming Tier 1 Organization 1. A student group can become a Student Association recognized and/or funded organization. To be considered a Student Association organization a group must submit a constitution to the Student Association Supreme Court. The constitution must at least include the name of the group, purpose, membership (must be open to all SA fee paying students), time and place of meetings, election proceedings, officers and their duties, impeachment procedures, amendment procedures, and committee establishments. 2. The constitution is then reviewed by the Student Association Supreme Court. The Student Association Supreme Court is composed of students who are appointed by the Student Association President, and confirmed by the Student Association Senate. Once the constitution is approved the organization is recognized as a Tier 1 organization. The organization will have a mailbox in the Student Association office that should be checked at lease once a week. The mailbox is our main avenue of correspondence between the Student Association and its recognized organizations. Funding for Tier 1 organizations is provided on an event by event basis through the presentation bill, which is presented to the Student Association Senate. The Student Association Senate has the authority to pass, fail, or amend the bill which means there is no guarantee any club or organization will receive any or all of what was requested.

Second: Betancourt Approval of A~enda: Robinson Second: Beck Guests of the Senate: Dr. Joseph Grant Commented on new smoking policy. NY State Clean Air Act have new requirements. Created a committee to deal with the problem. By 2004 there will be no smoking in any dining halls. In 2003 Pathfinder and Cayuga will be added to the non-smoking list followed by even more resident halls in 2004 including the sale of any tobacco products on campus. Also talked about the triples and asked for some feedback. Hopes next year triples will be based on requests. Pufky: The piece of land in front of Seneca Hall has become potentially dangerous due to the traffic and increased smokers standing outside the building. Asked if that was thought about in decision and also asked if the campus becomes smoke-free will it affect enrollment? Grant: Judgments will be made over time. They are concerned with Safety.

PAGE 10

Robinson: Asked is Hewitt Union was the only place to sell tobacco. Grant: Yes. Randolph: Worked at another institution where it was difficult to fit the needs of both smokers and non-smokers. Any considerations of that? Grant: Yes, in the end thinks non-smokers will prevail over smokers. Pufky: Wanted to clarify if RA7s should be enforcing this. Grant: No, Hall council, need to help develop a strategy. Dellow: Wonders if you could move cans 20 ft away to work with the new 20 ft rule. Grant: Tried too, some of the cans disappeared. Sutherland: Stated there was no where to go in front of Hart, could get dangerous. Grant: Good point, hopefully will be worked out. Randolph: What is discipline policy? Grant: Warning at first, something else if persistent abuse. Seeley: Wonders how many triples? Grant: 85 triples a total of about 240 students. Dr. Scharfenberger Been advisor for 12 years.

To: Student Association President, James Seeley; Student Association Governing Body From: Residents of Riggs Hall, Riggs Hall Council mcers, Riggs Hall Senator Re: NYPIRG Situation On Monday September 23,2002, the residents of Riggs Hall and its council decided to vote whether or not they supported NYPIRG. Many of the residents have read the article in the latest Oswegonian and have spread interest in the organization. Our Secretary, Lawrence Nadel felt it was a major issue and thought we should bring it up at our hall meeting. After hearing the organizations purpose from Joshua Brazee, RM of Riggs Hall, we decided as hall to sppport NYPIRG and its purposes/efforts. A motion clearly passed to write letters to you and the Student Association Governing Body. Over 200 students live in this hall and you should hear what they have to say. We, as a first year residential experience hall hope you support us and this wonderfit1 organization.

Second: Robinson Objection Randolph: add NYPIRG under Guest of Senate. Second: Robinson Guest of the Senate: Jerry DeSantis, Associate Vice President for Facilities Services Showed a power point on the new Campus Center. Trying to fill gap between new and old campus. Campus Center will be built over the parking lot attached to the west of Swetman. Will include new student government rooms as well as a hockey arena and an auditorium. Also will soon begin construction of Riggs Hall. Olenick: What problem will the new student union solve? DeSantis: Said it will academic and physical goals. Gap in the center of campus creates a wind tunnel, a building blocking the hole will make the campus more pedestrian friendly. Will also promote clubs, social activities and career services, all of which are elements of student success, because they would like more centrally located. Cannon: What are the plans for Hewitt Union? DeSantis: Immediate time it will be empty, unsure of future plans. Randolph: Has parking been considered? Need area to hold mass amounts of people for hockey games, etc. DeSantis: Parking will be included, unsure of plan. Robinson: How will construction on Riggs impact triples? DeSantis: Johnson will be online before Riggs is offline. Hershkowitz: Where will class be held when Swetman and Poucher are under construction? DeSantis: Swetman and Poucher won't be done at the same time. Sutherland: If everything runs smoothly when will everything be finished? DeSantis: Hopes to finish Johnson in fall 2003, Riggs in fall 2005 and Campus Center in fall 2006. Randolph: What's the projected life span of the high rise buildings?

PAGE 21

DeSantis: 30 years, but everything doesn't fail at same time. When something breaks down, they fix it. NYPIRG: Shawn McConnell: Thanked Jen Pufky for getting students registered to vote. Stressed the importance of getting students involved with voting. Said we are 47'h in the nation for how much we put into education. Raising tuition will harm us in the future, force students to drop out. It's important to invest in young minds. Empowering students to vote is important. Executive Report: President James Seeley: Talked about Geology Club, Stated the event is this weekend and will be hard to put on with so little time. $700 is a lot for one weekend. Senate really doesn't know much about them. Stressed organizations have to come sooner. Believes that similar situations have led to problems with organizations, as was partly the case with Capoeira. Kane: Wonders if there is any progress with finding more justices. Seeley: Had a difficult time, interviewed many people. No one qualified for the job yet. Betancourt: yield to Geology club: Submitted constitution three weeks ago. Stated it wasn't poor planning, it was lack of communication. Vice President Gregory Lawson: Talked about miss-a-meal, asked Senators to sign up. Read letter from Capoeira and Larry Provost. Provost requests aid for children. Thanks Senate, states meetings are running smooth. Director of Finance Charla Blum: Explains purchase order. 6501 ... $2500 6502 ... $6773 6503 ... $3470 6505 ... $3000 6506 ... $4000 Jen Clark: SA Assembly had a good turn out. Working on organization space for involvement fair, any feedback let her know. Landlord came into office and asked for Frank Salvador ... was good to be recognized by landlord.

Senator Issues Form: Lukowski: Working with OTEA, some exciting stuff coming. Randolph: Stressed the importance of voting. Encourages everyone to register and vote. Kane: Needs to work on communication between Senate and Supreme Court. Got an email saying the Geology club wasn't approved today, tried really hard to get it approved in a day. The Supreme Court is overloaded. Robinson: Agrees there is a lot of miscommunication. Would like it to be improved. Betancourt: Reads letter from Hart Hall. Cannon: Reported rape, issue we need to address. Don't be silent.

Pufky: Supports, wants to get things for the geology club moving. Robinson: Supports, they went through a lot of work. Randolph: Supports. Olenick: Wonders why there was no follow up made by Geo Club. May have been a good idea to have made a phone call. Thinks $350 (new amount) is more reasonable. Cannon: Asks what 'gear7 is? Geo Club: Gear is hammers, chisels, etc. Will now be paying for camping themselves. Sutherland: Motion to vote Second: Robinson 22-0-1 PASSED General Orders: SLE. 38.06 Tier 2 Funding Lukowski: In favor, trusts judgment of budget council.

PAGE 23

Robinson: What's recommended from finance? Pufky: Discussed it, a lot of organizations didn't come to appeal. If passed it will reinforce that they can appeal, incentive for organizations to come. Cannon: Motion to amend in the following ways: change line 18 to 2000, change line 30 to 2000, change line 33 to 2000 change line 35 to 25,000 Second: Robinson Motion passed. Lukowski: Thinks that it's crazy to give them money because we want them to come back. Doesn't think Senate should give money just to be nice. Betancourt: Someone on budget counsel told organizations they had fair amount so don't appeal. Olenick: If it goes back to the general account, organizations are going to ask for it again. Might as well give it to the people who put the appeals in. Bishop: These organizations took the time to put appeals in and obviously need the money. Cannon: When organizations come for money its usually unforeseen costs. Take into consideration how much effort organizations put in. Beck: Motion to vote Second: Robinson 18-2-2 PASSED Pufky: Discussed in finance, first question, why didn't you appeal? Why not fundraise?

Lukowski: Motion to vote. 22-0-1 PASSED Res. 38.03 STUDENTS' VOTES COUNT Second: Robinson Cannon: 51,000 passed by Senate and approved by President Stanely. The Democratic process is not being upheld. Betancourt: Student has taken every step to say they want NYPIRG on campus. We need to pass this. Olenick: States his hall does not support NYPIRG. Some students say NYPIRG got signatures of students coming out of bars off Bridge Street. His building is opposed to NYPIRG. Suggests maybe that $51,000 be spent on something else.

PAGE 24

Lukowski: Doesn't believe all students want this. It's a political organization. The money could be better spent somewhere else instead of suing a company somewhere far away. Randolph: Its getting ludicrous that we have no contract, again the students have shown their support over and over again for this organization yet we are still ignoring them. Robinson: It is a non-political organization. Has spent a lot of time learning about it. Smith: To say petition doesn't count because NYPIRG spent a lot of time getting signatures is ridiculous. Pass this; it will say when students vote it means something. Olenick: It's not the representation of the entire campus. 1 in 4 students is not good representation. Randolph: Thinks we're lucky to have NYPIRG on campus. Dellwo: Not going to get everyone's signature. But either way got the majority of the votes. Washington: NYPIRG brings important issues, and supports them. Lukwoski: motion to vote, call to question 15-5-1 PASSED to vote the Question was called Vote on bill 18-3-1 PASSED Roll Call: Cardea, Lukowski, Beck, Kane, Betancourt, Sutherland, Bishop, Cooper, Dellwo, Proxy Mitchel, Randolph, Smith, Washington, Farrell, McAllister, Walker, Robinson, Bakr, Olenick, Cannon, Guzman, Pufky, Hershkowitz Motion to adjourn: 9:10 Pufky Second: Robinson Respectful submitted by, Linnae Lehr, Student Association Senate Clerk

Past years officers didn't communicate very well. Have a new coach, Father Ed, and at least 50 active members. Will soon be doing a technique clinic. Team almost dissolved last year, things have change, this year everyone is very dedicated. Doing car wash at Walmart, as well as a can drive and other fund raising events. Boats are falling apart, they probably will not pass inspection at races this year. Trying hard to raise money themselves to buy a new boat. Pufky: How much would a new boat cost? Crew Club: A new boat would cost $17,000-$20,000. Looking to buy a used one for around $6,000. Sutherland: Are you able to repair the run down boats? Crew Club: Probably just as expensive to repair the boats as it would be to buy new ones because they are so old. Betencourt: What will money from fund-raising go towards? Crew Club: Probably just equipment. Lukowski: Crew club is a great organization, boats are a major issue. Randolph: The turn out is incredible tonight. Hershkowitz: Knows many people involved with crew. They work really hard. Shawn McConnell: Thanks everyone who helped out with voter registration, Beck, McCallister, Olenick, Smith, Pufky, Dellwo and Cooper. Able to register 295 people in one day.

increase this year still, next step putting together cards that say we are against tuition increases and sending them to Governor Pataki. Need help getting more cards, any time volunteers are welcome. Higher Education meeting 730 every Monday night. Senator Smith is leading higher education efforts this year. NYPIRG conference is next weekend at SUNY Binghamton. Many workshops to attend. Salvador: What should we be paying for tuition? McConnell: It should be affordable to students of all socially economic backgrounds. Everyone should be able to afford it. College is become more of a necessity. We should be able to provide an education that's almost free. Salvador: What is affordable? McConnell: Right now tuition is not affordable. New York is the 14~~ most expensive in the country, increasing will make it worse. Guest of the Senate: Peggy Rowe and William King, Audit Report: Went over reports, see attachments numbers one and two. Olenick: Asked what securities were? King: If for some reason bank closed, the bank has certain things they could sell. Guarantees you would get all your money back. Mary Schoeler, University Chief Technology Officer: Robinson: Many students have a problem that the Internet crashes everyday, wonders why we pay fee. Technology Officer: Fee is just incorporated in tuition so money is there if it is needed. It's just as expensive if two students use the Internet in a room or one. Schoeler: Some of problems are self-inflicted. Issues with Napster have increased. companies are notifying the campus when students are downloading illegal music and movies. This creates a new set of traffic. Technology Officer: Hopes within the next couple months everything will be worked out. It is a major problem and top priority. Pufky: Are you violating students' rights by finding down loads? Schoeler: Either way, it's a violation of state and federal law. SUNY Oswego doesn't look into the computer, companies such as SONY find these downloads and contact the school. Olenick: Some Mac's in the library don't have Internet Explorer wonders why? Schoeler: Students could use Macs if they want to, but are trying to balance the choices. Won't be eliminating Mac's but will be making it easier for those students who want to use the other computers. Randolph: Ln worst case scenario, what can the cost be. Technology Officer: It will be improved, no matter what the cost. It is a problem. Pufky: Will tech fee increase? Technology Officer: It has been increased, unsure if it will go up again. It's all tied to tuition.

PAGE 28

Olenick: Stated that dial up works all the time. Kane: Asked if they were suggesting we call up every time something happens? Schoeler: Maybe, in some cases it might help narrow down the problem. Olenick: If Verizon comes to our campus will phone rates increase or decrease? Technology Officer: Thinks we'll have an excellent plan next year. Adding special features to web site. Soon be able to pay tuition online, apply for graduation, etc. Nick Lyons, Vice President for Finance -discussed the likelihood of a tuition increase, as well as the reality of every student paying for Ethernet. Leadership Conference Absentees: Asian Association, President: Unable to attend, miscommunication, didn't pick up mail. All E. board committee members are new this year. Recommended using email next year. Accounting Society, President: Got the memo the day after. Normally checks mail often, was a one time occurrence. Biology Club, President: Didn't attend conference due to miscommunication. Black Friars: Confused SA with the LEAD Center. When they called LEAD Center it was confused with their closed conference and said Black Friars didn't have to attend. Olenick: Suggests some type of packet with specific dates for all organizations. Cheerleading: Miscommunication between President and club. Circle K, Vice President: Already had an event planned that day playing bingo with the elderly.

Kenny Wagner: Is currently the President of his fraternity. Goal is to reestablish Greek affairs and bi laws. Has not been very organized in past, hopes to fix that. Pufky: Would there be any favoritism to your fraternity? Wagner: Definitely not, no affiliation on a Greek Affairs stand point. Dellwo: Do you get along well with other Greek Directors? Wagner: Yes, very well. 21-0-0 Comformed Read a letter concerning NYPIRG. Stated none of his actions have gone without thought. There is not $51,000 worth of NYPIRG on this campus.

Pufky: Directed to President Seeley, what number would you like to see for

PAGE 30

a voter turn out. Thinks its great you want Senators to come and ask questions, but have already tried that twice this summer. Also thinks its great you have been going to all the hall council meetings, however President Seeley said what I had to say was not important so encourages Senate not to go meet with him. Olenick: Reason President is separate from Senate is to provide different voices. The idea that we can guide the President's hand with a resolution is not a democracy. Randolph: The question on the second referendum was misleading. Lukwoski: The students really don't have all the facts. Not many people turn out for hall council meetings. Thinks students really don't want NYPIRG. Cannon: Last week Senate talked about rape. Wants everyone to represent constituents and go to Take Back the Night. Needs support, make a stand and say Oswego won't put up with violence and rape. Smith: Although Senate doesn't guide the president's hand, wishes the students did.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO REPORTABLE CONDITIONS AND MANAGEMENT SUGGESTIONS * JULY 2002

PAGE 33

DRAFT July 18,2002 To the Student Senate of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego In planning and performing our audit of the financial statements of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Student Association"), for theyear ended June 30, 2002, we noted certain internal control structure matters that we consider reportable conditions under standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiencies in the design or operation of the internal control structure that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the Student Association's ability to record, process, summarize and report financial data consistent with the assertions of management in the financial statements. The following summarizes such reportable conditions and other matters that we believe you should consider. Reportable Conditions 1. ESTABLISH PROCEDURES TO PREPARE AND MAINTAIN A STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL POSITION. The Student Association does not currently prepare a statement of financial position and, accordingly, such a report is not presented to the Student Senate at their monthly meetings. As a result, certain balances including cash, investments, accounts receivable, other assets, accounts payable, other liabilities and net assets are only reviewed on an annual basis. Our audit discovered that many of these general ledger accounts were not reconciled or adjusted during the year and, therefore, there was no supporting detail at year-end. This results in inaccurate and incomplete financial reporting throughout the year. We recommend the Student Association adopt a procedure requiring formal reconciliations be prepared for all general ledger accounts on a timely basis, either monthly or quarterly. The reconciliations should be prepared by the individual responsible for maintaining the detail and reviewed and approved by supervisory personnel. All reconciling items identified should be promptly investigated, and necessary adjustments should be made. We also recommend, the Director of Finance prepare a statement of financial position with

PAGE 34

-2DRAFT comparative totals for prior periods at least on a quarterly basis. This statement should be presented to the Student Senate along with the statement of revenues and expenses h compared to budget. Currently, the Director of Finance is developing procedures in which she and the Association's bookkeeper will be reconciling and adjusting the accounts on a quarterly basis and presenting a statement of financial position to the Student Senate. 2. ENSURE THAT ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE PROPERLY RECORDED IN THE GENERAL LEDGER. During our examination, we noted that the general ledger does not reflect all of the daily transactions for one of the Student Association's bank accounts. The Student Association provides a check cashing service for the campus community by cashing checks at a check cashing window located in Hewitt Union. It is our understanding that on a daily basis checks that have been cashed at the check cashing window are brought to the bank and deposited into the Student Association's bank account. It is also our understanding that during this same daily trip to the bank an equal amount of cash is withdrawn from the account in order to replenish the check cashing cash drawer for the following day's business. We noted that the daily deposits and daily withdrawals are not reflected in the general ledger. As the general ledger is the official record of the Student Association's financial transactions and because it is management's obligation to record, process, summarize and report financial data, we recommend that these daily transactions be properly posted to the general ledger. This procedure will not only ensure that an adequate audit trail is available but will also reduce the risk associated with the possible misappropriation of Student Association assets. 3. OBTAIN SENATE APPROVAL FOR SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE ACCOUNTING SYSTEM. The Student Senate is responsible for the oversight of the Association. These duties require that they have access to information regarding major changes within the accounting system. During our examination, we found that the Association's Key Bank accounts were closed and the remaining funds were transferred to newly opened accounts at HSBC Bank. We were unable to find evidence in the Student Senate minutes that these actions had been approved by the Board. We recommend that the Association develop and implement procedures to ensure that the Student Senate is informed of significant actions affecting the accounting and reporting A system and, if applicable, that changes be formally approved by the Senate prior to implementation.

PAGE 35

DRAFT Other Management Suggestions e 1. PREPARE AN ACCOUNTING MANUAL FOR THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION. During our audit, we found the Student Association does not have a formal accounting manual. We recommend a formal accounting manual be developed that would include the following areas: a) Job descriptions for all Student Association accounting staff, outlines of operational procedures, including those performed by the outside bookkeeper; b) Descriptions of the various programs, clubs and activities; c) Definitions and descriptions of all general ledger accounts, in addition to a. chart of accounts for the Student Association; d) Description of the sources of entries to general ledger, including accounting journals prepared and maintained monthly and annually; e) Control functions, including required approvals on source documents and reconciliations; and f) Any information considered necessary for consistent accounting treatment of transactions made by the Student Association. The principal advantages and benefits to be derived from such a manual are as follows: a) Promote consistency and uniformity in the treatment of accounting transactions; b) Provide guidance and reference for all persons perforrning related functions, including coordination between functions performed by Student Association staff and those provided by the outside bookkeeper; c) Decrease training costs by providing guidance during periods of employee absence or annual turnover of the Director of Finance; and d) Provide opportunities for constructive improvement of present procedures through periodic review of the accounting manual. During the past fiscal year, the Director of Finance started the Student Association's accounting manual. The current Director of Finance has been working on additions and revisions to this manual.

PAGE 36

-4DRAFT 2. ESTABLISH ASSET CLASSES FOR THE CAPITALIZED PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT PURCHASES. During the past fiscal year, the Student Association established procedures to capitalize property and equipment. The previous Director of Finance set up separate general ledger accounts for each capitalized asset, along with the corresponding depreciation expense account and accumulated depreciation account. Consequently, the number of general ledger accounts increased significantly during the past fiscal year. We recommend the Student Association establish asset classes so that similar types of assets can be classified and recorded in the general ledger using only a few accounts rather than each asset having its own set of general ledger accounts. The bookkeeper would then maintain a separate fixed asset ledger that would support the property and equipment general ledger accounts. In accordance with professional standards, our consideration of the internal control structure was solely for the purpose of determining our auditing procedures for the purpose of our report on the financial statements and not to provide assurance on the internal control structure and would not necessarily disclose all matters that might be reportable conditions. n In addition, because of inherent limitations in any internal control structure, errors or irregularities may occur and not be detected by such control structure. This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Board of Directors, Members of the Student Senate and others within the Student Association and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

DRAFT Independent Auditor's Report July 18,2002 To the Board of Directors and Student Senate of the State University College at Oswego We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2002 and 2001, and the related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Association's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. As more fully described in Note 1 to the financial statements, prior to the year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged current operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. In our opinion, except for the effects of not capitalizing expenditures for property and equipment as discussed in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2002 and 2001, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Association prospectively changed its accounting policy regarding property and equipment.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Note 1 Summary of simificant accounting policies The Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") is comprised of various organizations carrying on student and academic activities at the State University College at Oswego, New York (the "College"). These activities are financed in part from the proceeds of mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Disbursement of the fees collected is made in accordance with an annual budget adopted by the Student Senate. Basis of accounting The financial statements of the Association have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and, accordingly, reflect all significant receivables, payables and other liabilities. The more significant accounting policies are as follows: Basis of presentation The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Financial Accounting Standard No. 117 (SFAS 117), "Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Organizations." Under this pronouncement, the Association is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets L and permanently restricted net assets. n Unrestricted net assets Unrestricted net assets consist of the current operating activities of the Association's budgetary funds. The amounts are unrestricted and are available for the support of operations. The Association had no temporarily or permanently restricted net assets as of June 30,2002 and 2001. Reserve for encumbrances Encumbrances represent obligations, such as purchase orders or other commitments outstanding at year-end for materials or services not yet received, and are recorded as a designation of unrestricted net assets. Designated net assets The Association is required to maintain ten percent (10%) or a minimum of $125,000 of the total predetemined revenues of the Association as designated net assets for reserve requirements at all times. Designated net assets include required reserves as described above, plus other pre-designated assets, such as property and equipment replacements. Income taxes The Association is exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and under similar requirements of New York State law. Accordingly, no provision has been made for Federal or state income taxes. Cash and cash equivalents For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Association considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Investments Investments represent certificates of deposit having maturities beyond three months and are stated at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates market value.

PAGE 43

-2DRAFT Concentration of credit risk The Association maintains cash balances and investments in certificates of deposit at several financial institutions. Cash and certificates of deposit in excess of the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are subject to credit risk. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association executed a collateral agreement with one financial institution whereby the bank has pledged certain securities to collateralize any balance the Association has on deposit at that institution in excess of the federal deposit insurance limit. The Association had no uninsured cash or certificates of deposit balances at June 30, 2002 and approximately $249,000 of uninsured cash and investments in certificates of deposit at June 30,2001. Property and equipment During the fiscal year ended June 30,2002, in order to conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, the Association adopted an accounting policy that prospectively requires purchases of property and equipment of $500 or more be capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation expense is calculated using the straight. line method over an assets useful life, which currently ranges from 3 to 7 years. Prior to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged current operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. The effect on the change in net assets of prospectively adopting the capitalization policy was to increase the change in net assets by $92,483. Property and equipment consisted of the following: June 30, Equipment Computers Less Accumulated depreciation Depreciation expense reflected in the statement of activities for the year ended June 30,2002 was $13,411. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of support, revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

PAGE 44

Note 2 Commitments and contingencies r" The Association paid $15,500 and $15,000 for management and accounting services and purchased approximately $45,000 and $31,000 in dining services from Auxiliary Services of the State University College at Oswego, Inc. ("Auxiliary Services") for the fiscal years ended June 30,2002 and 2001, respectively. During the fiscal year ended June 30,2002, the Association received a $20,000 donation from Auxiliary Services for the purchase of a campus ambulance. The Association entered into an agreement in August 2001 with Centro of Oswego, Inc. ("Centro") to provide regular route service to students for discounted rates. In consideration of this, the Association agreed to subsidize Centro for these services. The agreement required the Association to make five payments of $13,900 in fiscal 2002. The Association has entered into a two-year agreement with Centro for similar services and covers the fiscal years ended June 30,2003 and 2004. The current agreement requires the Association to make five payments of $14,000 and $14,900, respectively. The Association paid $51,632 and $49,960 to The New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc. (the "NYPIRG) for the fiscal years ended June 30,2002 and 2001, respectively. The Association has an annual agreement with NYPlRG to pay them $4 per student each fall and spring semester for use in providing legitimate services and materials necessary to carry out the research, co-curricular programming and public interest goals of NYPIRG. The Association paid $61,876 to the State University of New York at Oswego for various expenses associated with the campus intramural and recreation programs. An agreement, dated March 30, 2001, was signed and covered the period from June 30, 2001 to June 30, 2002. The Association has entered into a similar agreement for the fiscal year ending June 30,2003 requiring two equal payments of $35,700.

Robinson: Call to question. 4-15-1 FAILED Randolph: Editor is a member of organization. Is it fair to give members a discount just because they get a check?

Robinson: Very disappointed. We are not using the powers given to us but yet we want to okay everything the school does. Lawson: We need to make sure we do what we are supposed to do. Give students right to have a say. We have a formal say in what goes on. The school needs to respect our authority. Hershkowitz: Important to vote our own opinions. That is why we are here. Kane: This bill is not clearly written. Lawson: Can be vague. Didn't want to over legislate. This is a new thing, requires time to get up and running. We need respect from the University. This is the first small step. Robinson: Someone asked, Why would they take the student seriously? Kane: Why is this binding? This bill is presumptuous. Olenick: Thinks its presumptuous for us not to. It is a little vague but it allows more in future. Turner: Thinks this is great. Need to get more power back to Senate.

, 193 Hershkowitz: We should be able to make more decisions. Its not a new concept. 194 At some point the University took us more seriously. 195 Pufky: Something we need to take control of. Tremendous first step and it will 196 have a big effect on policy, we can't always go to them. 197 Smith: Cant afford to worry if they will like it or recognize it.

Funding for schools has gone down. Issue for all students. Randolph: Level playing field. Rigid class structure and its getting worse. We need to do something, its bad for America. Robinson: Constituents do not want tuition increase. Olenick: Intent is valid but tuition increase will increase financial aid. Taking money from those who have it and giving it to those who don't. Salvador: There is a lack of research here. Named things wrong with the bill such as, line twenty. Enrollment did drop, not necessarily because of tuition. Cannon: Call to question. 6-8-5 FAILED McAllister: All have minds made up now. Turner: Students deserve more. Barbur: If this passes, we will just be a name on a piece of paper? Smith: Will be playing an active role in states name. Kane: No one wants tuition to go up. Last year I was on Athletic Board. Fees went up because more money was needed. Money won't come from anywhere else. Seeley: Unrealistic to say tuition should stay the same. When we discredit ourselves they stop listening. At least fix the this bill through amendments.

Cannon, Pufkv. Hershkowitz Ill. A~~rovai of the ~lnutes: washington, 2nd Robinson. IV. Ap~roval of the Aaenda: -Objection Olenick, wishes to add President Seeley to Executive Report. -2nd Walker. No objection. -Motion to approve Washington, 2" Walker. V. Publlc comment and Announcement Shaun McConnell, NYPIRG: Discussed the issues regarding a tuition increase for SUNY, he feels there will be an increase regardless. Discussed how enrollment declined the year of and shortly after the last tuition increase. Shaun went on to discuss the tap situation with Governor Pataki. Shaun is so passionate about the tuition situation because he faced a difficult situation when he was an undergrad and was forced to work 12 hr days during the summer and is still in debt. He feels there will be a great number of people who will be forced to drop out if tuition is increased. There are plans for a "hike" across the state to Albany which he will provide more information on next meeting. VI. Guests of the Senate: Charles Weeks. Director of Residence Life and Housinq -Mr. Weeks discussed his position and his office. He went on to discuss the situations regarding triples and the smoking policy and a new room selection procedure as a result of both. -0lineck: questioned the situation in Scales hall regarding the weight room. -Weeks: Fitness rooms and situations are handled in the fitness centers, that is why ResILife has offered that service to us. Those residence halls that do have fitness rooms must meet the requirements of ResILife. Weight rooms in residence halls will not be funded by the department of ResILife. -Kane asked about the situation regarding triples. Herskowitz also asked about the triple situation. -Weeks replied that he does not want any more triples and anyone who wants to de-triple should be offered the opportunity to. There will be roughly 300 people not coming back next semester and an estimated 100 new students. There was a survey conducted but the results are not yet known. -Robinson asked if it was possible to include ResNet in the room rent. Kane also questioned the ResNet situation because other schools do not charge an extra fee. -Weeks replied that he is not comfortable with that because it will raise the cost of room rent.

PAGE 78

-Kane asked about the procedures are established in regards to the removal of RA's. -Week replied that the procedure is parallel for what is used for other employees. It is dependent upon the performance of the RA and their violation. With certain areas there are gray areas there is no room for discussion. RA's hold a very sensitive position and that is important to realize that when a violation has occurred. VII. Executive Re~orts James Seeley, Student Association President #6501 $2500 #6502 $71 27 #6503 $2491 #6505 $3000 The purpose for the vetoed legislation was because it was nat avoidable. Senators must come discuss legislation with him. The Senate is mostly new and do not know everything the President knows, and that could be helpful. He believes there are many unanswered questions with SLE.38.15, and does not want it to go through tonight. He believes that the Ontarian would work best if it was another division of the Student Association, not a club/organization. He feels this because it would add stability and it would ensure us that we have a yearbook. President Seeley believes that the election law should be postponed until next election year, and believes that Senators should look to see what is best for the students. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President He received a letter from former Senator Provost who is in Afghanistan, feel free to stop by and read it. The Senate's miss-a-meal program helped to fund 45 mammograms for women who would most likely not have had the financial resources to receive them. Announces there will be amendments from the Elections Committee as a whole, they will divide and gone through independently as to ensure a fair and speedy process. Announces that there will not be a senator of the month for the month of December. The reason being that he did not feel any Senator went above and beyond what was called on. He felt that the Senators who were active took action because that's what they were supposed to do. Vice President Lawson acknowledged Senator Barbur because of his hard work on the parking issue as well as his dedication to the Senate. He also thanked Senator Kane for her hard work as well as her dedication to the Policy Committee, regardless of its poor attendance. VIII. Senator Issues Forum -Senator Turner expressed some at the ability of the Student Association limiting of the protections in the Bill of Rights. -Senator Kane expressed concerns regarding committee attendance. She also informed the Senate that Senator Sutherland is doing well. XIV. Committee Reports Policy Committee: Looked over the amendments to SLE.38.17, and also have their own. Attendance was low. Procedure Committee: Weak attendance. They have amendments to the legislation on the table.

The Oswegonian has changed a great deal and believes the changes have helped to make the paper something students want to read. Lukowski and McAllister: Concerns expressed for the budget of the Oswegonian and why these were not budgeted for. Turner expressed come concerns over who was getting the recognition for these awards. Randolph reads the paper regularly and is a great admirer of the changes, however he feels it inappropriate to take these funds from the emergency account. He feels the bill is not worth failing and that we should reward them. Lukowski: they are a good paper but with a 41,000 a year budget they could find $1 25.00. Bishop: believed it to be such a small amount that we shouldn't be making such a big deal over it. Robinson asked a point of information to Senator Cannon, if Finance Committee recommended passing or failing this bill. Cannon replied failed. Kane: Expressed concerns from constituents that these funds were going to be going for individual awards not for the entire paper. Proposed amendment: Strike lines 23,24 and 25. New total$27.

Kane: believes we should overturn because the number is not all we need to look at dedication is the factor that matters most. Betancourt yields time to Salvadore who states an increased number for quorum is not much to ask for. Salvadore yields to Bacallias who says that a lower number will lessen the quality. Lawson reads from Roberts Rules and states that quorum is not a number to protect the majority but the minority. It is suppose to be a safety line, not a determining factor when conducting business. Kane agrees and adds that by no way would this lower standards. Pufky requests the chair to take a vote. 213rds Needed to Overturn 1 6-2-1 Veto Overturned VETOED SLE.38.15 Amendment #I to SLE.35.01: Creating of Cards and Discount for Senators Robinson feels the reasoning specifically an executive order could be easily changed and this is the only way to ensure that the change stays. Randolph believes that if this is what the Senate wishes than this is the law and means to institute that change. He suggests overturning. Betancourt yields to Salvadore who suggest writing something both parties agree. Lawson adds that there is some danger relaying on Executive Order when there is nothing in the Student Association bylaws defining such an action. Olenick feels that it will last longer if we pass this law, and it will be harder to repeal. This is not overstepping the bounds of the SA Senate. Bishop calls the question which passes 1 8-1 -0.

Jen: Sorry I couldn't make the meeting Monday night. You and the Committee and Greg have done a great deal to improve the Election Law. I believe that in the interest of clarity it is important to simplify the organization of section ID, paragraph VII. I have suggested a change in title because in its present form the proposed Law does not address disqualification or any other sanction directly. My suggestions are: W. Process for Addressing Violations of the Election Law 8" -( _-C *The Senate Elections Committee shall receive and record all alleged la discrepancies or violations of this Election Law Q nd ~'~de (3 c*Ll a \\ a \\4q4 & cascrep~rr& CCV\OMIO~S ?o--fhe senate Elections Committee chairperson will report said discrepancies or alleged violations to the Senate in a timely manner. b~he Senate Elections Committee will investigate and report to the Senate on the sitbstaflce of alleged discrepancies or violations. pon determining by majority vote of the Committee that a violation of the pjL ction Law has occurred, The Senate Elections Committee, by majority vote, shall issue a public report indicating any of the following conditions: wl%\ntn j7cicV5 -&* Cmnrni tcee~~~ 1. No violation of the Election Law has been found. 2. A violation of the Election Law requiring Senate Elections Committee action has been found through investigation. In this instance, the Senate Elections Committee shall meet with the violating parties to explain the findings and clarify the applicable guidance as prescribed in the Elections Law.. 3. A violation of the Elections Law requiring adjudication by the Student Association Supreme Court has been found through investigation. In this instance, the Senate Election$ Committee Chairperson will file a complaint on behalf of the Committee to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and shall represent the Student Association as plaintiff in any@usequen/ adjudication. 4. Section VII of the Election Law in no way supercedes the right of an individual student to file a complaint with the Supreme Court. E. The Supreme Court, upon finding that a violation of Student Association law or policy has occurred, shall make a ruling of law and/or a ruling of fact as required by the evidence, shall sanction the in so far as the violation is found by the Court to have a of the election. I hope this helps.

THEREFORE BE IT ENACTED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that the following changes be implemented. After "IV Student Association Constitution" add "and By-Laws" Replace Article XI Section B with: B. The next step Tier 2 Tier 1 organizations that have been active on campus for one semester are eligible to become a Tier 2 organization and are entitled to a yearly budget. Any Tier 1 organization wishing to apply for Tier 2 status may submit a budget request during the Tier 2 budget process in the fall semester. All Tier 2 clubs submit a line-by-line budget request to the Budget Council by the second academic Friday of the fall semester. After the second Friday, Budget Council will convene with the organizations that have submitted a Tier 2 budget request. All requests are reviewed on first come, first serve basis. Budget Council shall inform all the clubs of their line by line budget recommendations by the third Friday in September. Organization appeals are due one week from the date of the notification of recommendations from the Budget Council. Depending on the date Budget Council notifies organizations of their line-by-line budget recommendations, the Finance Department shall submit legislation to the Senate with specific line-by-line allocations for Tier 2 organizations. At the same Student Association Senate meeting all appeals will be heard and decided upon (with quorum present). The Student Association Senate will consider the club allocation at the first Senate meeting immediately following the Senate meeting at which appeals are heard. Clubs in Tier 2 must remain at this level until they have been on campus for two consecutive semesters. The two semesters must include a spring semester and the following fall semester. All Tier 2 clubs may submit up to $100.00 worth of purchase orders prior to club funding. All purchase orders

PAGE 59

over $100.00 require Student Association Senate approval. Information regarding this process is distributed in the mailboxes early in the fall semester so it is imperative that clubs check the mail as soon as school is back in session. Add Article XN Section F: F. The Student Association Director of Finance will submit a monthly financial summary of each of their accounts beginning with October and ending in May to all Tier 2 and Tier 3 organizations receiving a budget. Replace Article XVII Mandatory Leadership Training Seminar with: XVII. Mandatory Leadership Training Leadership training is mandatory for the president and one other executive board member of all Student Association Organizations. No SA organization will have access to funds until having been trained to the satisfaction of both the SA President and Director of Finance. Replace Article XVIII Mandatory Involvement in Activities Fair with: XVIII. Mandatory Involvement Fair All Student Association funded clubs and organizations are required to participate in the Student Association Involvement Fair, from beginning to end, for the duration of the Involvement Fair's existence. Failure to attend the Involvement Fair will result in the freezing of accounts until the Director of Finance or President has been consulted as to the reasoning for not attending the Involvement Fair. The Fair will be held at the earliest practical date in the fall semester. Replace Article XXI Section D with: D. Reimbursements ONLY with the prior approval of the Director of Finance or SA President can a reimbursement be issued. If expenditures are authorized, a purchase order must be submitted with receipts to receive a reimbursement. Tax cannot be reimbursed because the Student Association is a tax-exempt organization. Replace Article XXI Section H subsection 1 with: 1. No Student Association Organization can transfer money from their accounts to accounts of another Student Association Organization. In Article XXI Section I subsection 3 following "All Student Association" add the word "performance".

Last time there was a major tuition increase 30,000 students had to drop out of school. Will be speaking out against tuition next week. If anyone is adversely affected you should come out, probably an open mic. Legislatives do read papers. Recently when Pataki was in Syracuse NYPIRG found and protested tuition hike, made NY Times, Post Standard, and local television stations. To protest the tuition increase there will be people walking from Buffalo to Albany to end in Albany for a massive rally. Each school is responsible for different sections of the walk. If SA wants to participate you can walk together for a portion and make some signs. Kane: Who will this affect by the tuition increase? McConnell: This will affect all students. All tuitions will go up. Pufky: For those who have scholarships. Need to speak to whomever you received your scholarship from to find out if it will cover the tuition increase. Guest of the Senate: Mike Pastella, Assistant Director Student Org. Services, Questions senators such as, At what point are you here for the organizations, or resident halls, or average Oswego student? What you do with your knowledge is a big deal? When will you, as a Senator, draw the line? If you have a voice, tell Albany, Washington and the United Nations what you think. There are some big issues in front of Senate. Last war was in 1991, last major budget increase was in

.33 1995. Need to inform students of what's going on. How will your feelings change 34 over time? Remember the greater good. 35 36 Executive Report: 37 James Seeley, Student Association President 38 Asked Senate review amendments to legislation longer. It would serve student 39 body better if before making a change you talked to the submitter. He discussed 40 the vetoed bill, SLE. 38.17 By Law Amendment Executive Transition Protocol. 41 Stated Part 'C' was redundant, part 'D,' not possible. Senate needs to work harder 42 on financial bills. Explained recent Executive Orders and reasoning behind them. 43 Organizations going on trips, when they're gone it is difficult to get a hold of 44 them. If there's a problem University Police calls SA. Need a contact in case of an 45 emergency. Hopes to removed any conceptions that Student Association can 46 embezzle money, by requiring two signatures on purchase order requests of large 47 amounts. It will not slow down the PO process. There are many laws we don't use 48 and we want to put everything together. There has been a lack of debate on 49 campus and because of that we are going to work to bring some discussion panels 50 to campus. There are some big political issues coming up in the future. Seeley, 5 1 already sent a letter to Pataki regarding tuition increase. We could use more ideas 5 2 for miss-a-meal. Please talk the organizations your represent about budget, if they 53 don't know what to do have them come to Charla or myself. Has been working 5 4 with Auxiliary Services on potential meal plan changes. Thinks it would be better n 55 for students to go from having 3 guests meals, to instead, five or six anytime 56 meals that can be used on a guest or yourself. Also, want to add another business 57 to plus plan. 5 8 Dellwo: Aren't you in support of a tuition increase? 59 Seeley: 41% is too much. A little increase is acceptable. We're going to 60 fight it, but can't unconditionally exile the increase. 6 1 62 Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President 63 Will now be the peer advisor for Political Science, so his office hours will be 64 changed. If you need anything from him contact him there. Brought back the 65 training posters, asked Senate If there was anything they would like to add on. 66 Supports Seeley's veto. Talked about Senate liaison, please start contacting them. 67 If your not you will be censored. We don't want to look like fools. We will be 68 moving away from printed minutes. They will be posted on the web and 69 distributed via email. This will help to cut down on the cost of copies. There are 70 more guests coming up soon; President Stanley and Kathy Santos for example. 71 72 Charla Blum, Director of Finance 73 Ready for the budget, will get Senate prepared next meeting. Am willing to go 74 right through budget with all the organizations. If you are submitting a finical bill, 75 email it to me first, probably can nip some problems from it before it gets to 76 Senate.

Guest of Senate: Cathy Santos, Judicial Code Administrator & Assistant Dean of Students She sees role as ability to help students. Have many ties in the community. Suggests putting more time and patients into things. Make it as difficult as possible for people to disagree with you when you feel strongly about something.

Asked if Senate would put Charla7s name first on RES. 38.07. Told Senate he was tired of being their babysitter. Asked them to do it right and do it yourselves. Dellwo: Asked President Seeley if he and the Senate were supposed to work together. Asked if he was against the Senate. Seeley: Said he as not against the Senate, but shouldn't have to do everything.

Will be selling ad space or an organization can donate money. Committee Repots: Policy: Kane: Was really impressed with attendance at the last meeting.

Cannon: See many court cases coming out of it. 16-0-4 PASSED General Orders: SLE.38.24 Significant Accounting Changes Olenick: An extra level of over-sight couldn't hurt. 15-0-5 PASSED SLE.38.27 Program Fund Pufky: Motion to waive reading. Robinson: Second Seeley: Asked Senate to refer for one week. Randolph: Opposed to this bill. Students voted they wanted NYPIRG. Kane: Motion to amend in the following ways, add on line 16 after "account 6204" insert "NYPIRG (Contractual Agreement)." Pufky : Motion to vote. 18-0-2 PASSED Olenick: Motion to refer. Robinson: The committee doesn't need to be doing the work of the submitters. Randolph: Agrees. Shouldn't have to rewrite the bill. Olenick: People have already made up there minds. Don't kill it now; just send it back to the committee. Exercise every possible way to get something out of it. Pufky: If you change whole purpose of bill it needs to be resubmitted. 3-14-3 Motion to Re-refer FAILED Frances Clark, NYPIRG: The work we do matters state wide and on this campus. In order to keep this chapter running, we had to divert money from other campuses. Franldy, we stayed here because we believed the students wanted NYPIRG here on the campus. President Seeley came to us with reasonable compromises, we agreed to most of them. Robinson: This is not committee's job. Bakr: It's a big assumption that NYPIRG will get the money. Dellwo: Every time we see a organization, they come to see us7 explain how they spend their money, we see pictures, we ask questions. This doesn't even say what the money is going to do. Manning: Reminds everyone to vote how their constituents tell them too. Dr. Scharfenberger: Be careful your rational doesn't include notions of reimbursing. Cannon: We have a responsibility to spend this money, but this is a blank check. Washington: yield to NYPIRG: Our attorney assured us we could be reimbursed the money, we certainly could show proof of what we did on this campus. Barbur: We were reminded to vote with constituents if this is what college students want, this is what they want. Randolph: It's a possibility NYPIRG can't get this money, but if we pass this they definitely can not get this money. Pufky: This is a big deal, cannot be rushed. Why should we give them the money and expect them to spend it right? They couldn't deal with it before, how can they now? Manning: Calls for a five minutes recess.

Senator Issues Forum: Cannon: Wondered why there was so much slush on the campus. How do you get ride of it? Barbur: Asked Off Campus Senators to email him their availability. Committee Reports: Policy: Kane: Went over six pieces of legislation. SLE.38.34 really liked definition but few small amendments. Procedure: Randolph: Reviewed seven bills. SLE.38.25-passed. Voted down SLE. 38.30. SLE.38.31 and SLE.38.32 were passed. SLE.38.33 and SLE.38.34 passed with amendments. Next meeting Thursday at 8:00 in SA conference room. Finance: Cannon: Looked over SLE.38.20 and the suggestions from Dr. Scharfenberger. Recommended it be referred for one week. Involvement: Beck: Have had low attendance; need to know if 6:00 isn't a good time. Need some Senators to sign up for slots in the involvements. Elections: Pufky: Met Thursday, elected a new vice chair, Senator Robinson. Voted on New petition format and sign to get people to come. General Orders: SLE.38.25 Student Association Legislation Process Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways, Strike lines 34 through 36 and replace with "If a student organization needs to have legislation reviewed by a certain date, it shall be placed under special orders with a date specified that they need the action taken by." Second: Randolph Dr. Sharfenburger: Asked purpose of amendment. Randolph: Trying to paraphrase something in the bill. Lawson relinquished chair to Senator Randolph 6:48 Lawson: Follow outline of bill, point five, put it before that. Make it a number five and number six a number five. Cannon: Isn't special orders something we are supposed to do that night. If it sits in Senate to long, the event could go by. McAllister: Your paraphrasing. Lawson: Cannon is right. Kane: Reason it would be in Special orders is because there is no time for it in committees. Cannon: Can still put it in Special Orders without this amendment. 0-14-3 FAILED Randolph: Motino to amend, strike lines 9-12. Second: Robinson Randolph: Its redundancy that's not necessary. Kane: Agree, its an extra step we don't need in there. Sutherland: I concur with Randolph and Kane. Lawson relinquished chair to Senator Kane at 7:OO. Lawson: If you get rid of part three then get rid of the entire legislation. Part three is the most important part. The purpose is to ensure that we are not bogged down with bad legislation Cannon: Should go to committee chair. If something is unconstitutional give it back to make appropriate amendment. Don't see harm. Randolph: Shouldn't be doing any process of review. Could give us more of a bias. How many times have we changed something unconstitutional on the floor?

PAGE 20

Sutherland: I conquer with Brian. Maybe not strike, but reword. Pufky: Just a recommendation, nothing major. Its been good going to committees. Lawson: Section three is most important of the bill. Not matter what the bills will still come to Senate. Meetings are shorter because of current policy, this will make the shorter and more effective. Something illegal shouldn't get here, so it doesn't bog us down. If you get rid of 4a and 4b still stuck with something more confusing. Cannon: As a bill submitter would like comments on the things I submit. Randolph: Doesn't think it should be a strict law. Doesn't meet standards. We're making it like we have state sub-committees. This is not something we should be doing. Withdraw amendment.

Beck: Motion to amend, change point five to point six and add point five, "Have one vote except for legislation authorizing the disbursement of funds." 13-2-1 PASSED Randolph: Motion to amend add lines fifty after events "in an unbiased manner," 53 after events "in an unbiased manner," strike lines 50 after events and 53-54 after events. 13-0-4 PASSED Sutherland: Doesn't truly believe faculty should be involved in student affairs. 10-4-3 PASSED SLE.38.31 SA Senate Apportionment McAllister: Could be voting faculty member? Lawson: Yes. Robinson: Request to take a vote. 15-1-1 PASSED SLE.38.32 Executive Transition Protocol Seeley: Make sure process is as simple and flexible as possible.

2003-2004 Executive Budget Proposal For SUNY OPERATING BUDGETNormally current revenues Salaries, Utilities, Equipment, Materials etc. Reduces state support SUNY-wide by $178 million Increases income requirement SUNY-wide by $197 million Presumes $1,200 full-time undergraduate resident tuition increase (Graduate, Non-resident, Part-time will also increase) What might the proposed Executive

PAGE 28

Budget mean to SUNY Oswego's operating budget? If passed as proposed-Anticipate stable budget If passed with proposed tuition increase reduced-Requires additional state support to maintain stable budget Example for Discussion: As presently configured --if additional state support is not forthcoming-for every $100 the tuition increase is reduced our operating budget is projected to be reduced by $678,000. If new hires were retained at $38,000 year-that means a loss of the equivalent of nearly 18 positions. If 6 of those positions were faculty lines and each person taught 4 classes---we might need to reduce our course offerings by 48 sections a year. Assuming an average class size of 25-approximately 1,200 seats might be affected.

PAGE 29

The Executive Budget recommends a new 2003-08 Capital Plan of state funds totaling $2.5 billion SUNYwide Over $40 million in new state funds for academic facilities have been identified for SUNY Oswego-In addition, we anticipate $25 million in residential facility improvements funded from non-state sources. I EOP---~ducationa~ Opportunity Program Recommends elimination of $8.2 million in Supplemental Student Financial Aid SUNY-wide Oswego's portion of those funds is circa $280,000 and affects 362 students Recommends restructuring TAP to reduce costs and encourage degree completion

PAGE 30

Base Component provides students 213 of the calculated award, using existing eligibility and aid provisions-Maximum award level $5,000 Performance Award pays the remaining 113 to students upon completion of their degrees. The performance Award would include interest if the student incurred loans. Based on Fall 2002 cohort of Oswego students-the proposed TAP restructuring might affect our students as follows: 4,063 of our 6,646 full-time students received TAP award (61%) 2,077 of the 4,063 TAP recipients, or 51% received the minimum TAP award ($500 per year). Using current TAP guidelines these students may not receive a TAP award increase if tuition were to increase. 1,986 of the 4,063 TAP recipients, or 49%, would receive a TAP increase to cover the additional cost of tuition. Using current TAP guidelines, these students would be held harmless. Comparative and Historic Tuition and Fees

XV. Priorities and Criteria for Funding A. All Funding Opportunities The funding demonstrates consistency with the Student Association purpose to increase the participation, provide leadership and educational opportunities, and improve the quality of student life. Applicants for funding must demonstrate that a substantially equivalent service is not being provided elsewhere for the student body. Diversity is vital for long range success. Funding decisions will be view-point neutral and shall not be discriminatory based on race, religion, creed, gender or philosophy. Innovation will be welcomed. All liability concerns have been met to support the activities. The activities meet the Board of Trustees Policy on distribution of the mandatory Student Activity Fee. (see Article 11) B. Specific Criteria for Recognized SA Organizations 1. The capability of the organization and/or personnel for budgeting, accounting and internal controls must be sufficient to administer the potential funds. 2. Requests for personnel compensation must provide evidence that the level of compensation is consistent with the functions to be performed. 3. The funding is guided by a defined mission and a strategic plan. 4. The organization has not significantly or habitually violated existing financial policies. If such violations have been made, the organization has taken immediate action to correct the noncompliance with existing policies and satisfactory progress in resolving these violations has been made.

Call to Order: 6:05 11. Roll Call: Beck, Kane, Obstein, Sutherland, Barbur, Cooper, Dellwo, Randolph, Farrell, McAllister, Robinson, Bakr, Manning, Owens, McClain, Pufky, Hershkowitz. 111. Approval of the Minutes: Kane 2nd Robinson IV. Approval of the Agenda: Pufky Objection: Add RES.38.13 to New Legislation. 2nd Robinson V. Public Comment: Shawn McConnell, NYPIRG: The No Tuition Hike finished today in Albany, with over 3,000 people there. Oswego was one of the best represented schools, with the largest crowd and banner. Thanked Senator Pufky, Cooper, Dellwo Hershkowitz and McAllister and everyone else who helped and/or took part. VI. Guests of the Senate Chris Meyer, NYPIRG Executive Director and Francis Clark, NYPIRG Campus Supervisor. Mr. Meyer: Handed out document explaining the mission of NYPIRG and went into some detail. The mission of NYPIRG is to help train the next generation of leaders by trying to effect change. In the past they have worked on government reform, higher education, social justice and public health and many others. Students will learn how to organize a meeting, and speak publicly. This year NYPIRG has spent most of its time on higher education. There were schools at the rally today in Albany that are not associated with NYPIRG, and the NYS Assembly Higher Education Chair said during his address to the crowd, "Lets hear it for NYPIRG." The important thing to remember is that Oswego didn't do this alone, nor did any other NYPIRG group; they did it as a group of 3,000 strong. That's what NYPIRG brings to bare, they bring people together. On the matter of pooling resources and budgeting, NYPIRG tries to get the most they can with every dollar. They pool resources and try to amplify the value of the dollar. They try to follow the "its cheaper by the dozen" mentality. Every chapter gets a full time project coordinator, and has access to staff people. As for accountability, NYPIRG believes that the referendum that is held is the most democratic way to find out if students want them on NYPIRG. They are accountable in ways such as their tax forms that are on file, as well as their audit. With this they believe they

PAGE 39

35 are upholding the will of the Senate and the Student body. Believes NYPIRG can 36 unite people, if you don't support them then work with them and it is possible that 37 you can change their position or views or general direction of the organization. 38 Mr. Meyer pledges to work with you, and he very much appreciates the chance to 39 talk to you. 40 Robinson: Thanks Shawn for helping to his efforts to keep the Oswego 4 1 Students up to date. Asks about the College Republicans trying to remove 42 NYPIRG from certain campus. 43 Meyer: Believes this boils down the idea that "if you don't support 44 NYPIRG why fund them." NYPIRG is a non-partisan group. They work 45 with everyone, anything that the students want NYPIRG will work on. 46 Robinson: Then asks about the budgeting and pooling of resources. 47 Meyer: The budget is pooled together and allocated to the central office 48 where it is spread in according to the budget passed by the Board of 49 Directors. Meyer claims that not a single chapter of NYPIRG was hurt to 50 support Oswego. 51 Randolph: Thanked NYPIRG for remaining on campus. It would have 52 been easy for them to just pull out of campus. 53 Seeley: Asks how we are able to make sure the money from one campus s 54 actually going to that campus. Seeley does not believe that they have not 55 shown us what they have been able to do. 56 Meyer: All campus get many resources and possibilities to do things. n 57 Josh Breeze: NYPIRG has helped many students, including his self. 58 NYPIRG gives students more opportunities to work on issues, and the 59 benefits are long run. Believes NYPIRG is overall a worthwhile 60 organization. 6 1 McAllister: As a republican he believes that NYPIRG is ok. Believes the 62 important and impressive thing about NYPIRG is that it can be easily 63 changed by the members of the organization themselves. 64 Seeley: Asked for Copies of the Budget. If anyone can prove wrong what 65 he believes then he asks them to. 66 Salvadore: If some campus' are getting more funding than others. Why 67 don't they sign contracts for account for this? 68 Meyer: Does not agree with the presence. Sometimes they spend more on 69 one campus, but the important thing is that a win on one campus is a win 70 for all. 71 VII. Executive Reports 72 James Seeley, Student Association President: 73 Did not justify funding NYPIRG, and feels it is highly hypocritical to give 74 them money. 75 Expresses some concerns with the line of succession legislation. There 76 could be too many personality problems. 77 Financial Policy Amendmenta small amendment can fix the problems 78 with that. h 79 Student Activity Fee IncreaseDoes not support for obvious reasons. 80 Congrats to Oswego State Hockey Team.

Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Power point is a little messed up. President Stanley is scheduled for the next meeting. Next week Senator of the Month will be awarded. RES.38.13. This resolution will help to protect all of us from the dangers of the modem current political atmosphere. Senate supports the Literacy organization brought to them last week. Charla Blum, Student Association Director of Finance. Numbers are the same as last week. April 25-27 is the Student Assembly conference. If you want to go please email Charla with a reason why, and a decision will be made. It is expensive so SA cannot pay for everyone. Jen Clark, Student Association Director of Public Relations. Eboard has some serious concerns regarding the election. We need to get people out to the polls. This is her last meeting. Thanks to the media, Rebecca Madden, Jay Holder. Senator Cooper asked for a brief account of attempts made by President Seeley to increase involvement. -Director Clark: Biggest pressure has been put on the Student Assembly, which has had a steady turnout. VIII. Senators Issues Forum Barbur: Apologizes for not making committee. Disappointed that not many people, specifically Off Campus Senators, turned out for the parking committee meeting. Is disappointed with the lack of work between the executive and legislative branch. Hopes that the relationship between the two branches is a lot better next year. IX. Committee Reports Policy: Kanenext meeting Monday at 3:00 Procedure: RandolphVoted to pass SLE.38.41. Finance: CannonVoted to pass SLE.38.42, and have also spent a great deal of time looking at the budget. Involvement: BeckAsks Senators to pass out flyers, and announcing elections in their classes. Please Senators go door to door to promote the election. Elections: Pufkythey have been meeting every day for the past couple weeks. The elections are going rather smooth, and encourage everyone to get people out to vote. CCRT: Bakrlooking to have a more informal event, to try and encourage more interaction. X. General Orders SLE.38.41 Amendment #1: Line of Succession: Addition of time frame for Line of Succession. Randolph: there is a limit, want a way to handle things. Very unclear as to what line of succession really is, or for how long. Sutherland: concurs with Senator Randolph Robinson: to many issues to tell if things should be permanent or temporary.

PAGE 41

127 Lawson: You might want to get rid of the last whereas; it's kind of 128 repetitive with the purpose of the legislation. We need to think of what 129 happened last year and what would have happened if we had this 130 legislation enacted then. This is a time when emotions are at their highest 131 and there is an opportunity for the Senate to make a decision which would 132 steal even more votes from the Students who voted. Is this the "democratic 133 practice" that this Senate wishes to uphold. This is a huge loophole, which 134 could lead to potential problems 135 Pufky: Nothing says in the current order of succession if the placement is 136 temporary or permanent, Motion to refer to procedure for one week. 137 OwensAgrees that this might need to be looked at longer. 138 17-0-0 passes. 139 SLE.38.42 Funding for Geology Club T-shirt and Transportation 140 Kaneonly asking for a small amount. They have worked very hard to 141 raise some funding. > 142 Paul from GeologyClub has really grown, have sold supplies, 143 baked goods and other forms to make up some money. We are 144 going to pay for hotels, and are just asking for some help with the 145 t-shirts and vans. 146 Kaneworked really hard, and they are not asking very much. 147 Pufkysupports this bill. 148 McAllisterWhy twenty shirts if there are not twenty members. 149 PaulWe thought we would get more for faculty as well as parents. 1 50 Pufkyrequests the chair to take a vote. 151 Passed 14-0-2 152 XI.

Mentions NYPIRG conference to Senators, which will be the last weekend of spring break. Mike Gerwitzman, President of JSU. Explains some of the past events JSU has held, paying special attention to the dinners they have held at Cooper dining hall.

Josh Turner: Thanks the Senate for their time, and asks the Senate to remember the organizations that we fund on campus, and the principles of democracy which we claim to uphold. NYPIRG means a lot to him, and has helped him realize a great deal of the democratic process on a state wide and national level. NYPIRG has affected his life in a positive manner and hopes it continues to have the opportunity to reach others. Demetrius Barnwell: Attended the meeting to address the numbers of emails he has received which he feels have a strong political bias. Reminds the Senate that sometimes you have to do the right thing for your student body and asks them toto support NYPIRG. If students want them on campus, than the Senate should ensure that they are. Dr. Forbes: NYPIRG brings global issues to campus, and would be missed if they were not here. She has been continually impressed with their work. Salvadore: The NYPIRG issue is about accountability. All we have ever asked for is a line by line account of the funds. How would the Senate feel if they did not get a copy of the budget to keep after they passed it? Asks them to fail this bill. Guests of the Senate President Deborah F. Stanley, SUNY Oswego: Feels she is continually impressed with the Senate. She hopes to explain what has been going on from her last visit.

Oswego will continue its attempts to provide through presidential scholarships, and hope to continue to push Oswego to higher levels. Oswego will be receiving additional funding from the state for capital improvements. This money is bonded, or barrowed, and can not be used for tuition related purposes. Robinson: Expresses frustration at the inconvenient times required classes are offered. Stanley: Understands the situation, and it is a reoccurring theme. This is being looked into by the University. McAllister: Is enrollment expected to drop? Stanley: Does not feel that enrollment will decline at a noticeable level. Feels that the answer to the question relays a great deal on financial aid and TAP. Barbur: What is being done regarding the current parking problem on campus? Stanley: It is always changing, and there will be a new lot near Seneca. Larry Provost: Discussed the current military situations in Afghanistan and Iraq with the Senate. Discusses respect for America, and believes that we are doing the right thing. Believes we are pushing and fighting for fundamental human dignities. Asks us to look beyond the political differences, and look at the people the motives and the constant push for peace and harmony. America is not about a party or a race or a group it is about freedom. Presents at the conclusion of his discussion presents a photograph for the Women's Center and a flag to the Senate which was made in and flown over the US base in Afghanistan. Executive Re~orts James Seeley, Student Association President: Discussed what he feels he has done during his term in office. Worked hard to being the campus and the city together. We need to realize that we need the city as much as they need us. Attended as many organizations functions as possible, and this has had a positive effect on the relationship between SA and our organizations. Increased efficiency, with handbooks and manuals for employees and positions. We now have a mission statement, which was something Cathy Santos said would be good for us to happen. We had one before she mentioned it to us. SA Assembly. We invest a lot in our organizations, and this has been a good source of information and a wonderful line of communication. Restructured the E-board, and we remained in tack and successful all year. Feels the Criteria Bill and Policy Recognition Bill will be powerful in the future and is a great step at our stability. Contracts for next year are in progress. New Election Law, it is not perfect but we need to try and attempt to work through it. Glad we have transition protocol straightened out. Off Campus Commuter forum. The sky is the limit if we can continue to advertise and get commuter students to go. We will not be charging for bus passes anymore, providing even more services to the students. The Campus Center is nearing finalization and we need to continue to ensure that it fits what we need. Feels great attempts have been made to remain active on the most powerful and active committees. Believes the Senate Liaison system is failing.

PAGE 46

Worked to get additional Plus Plan options, looking to try and get the Subshop or Subway involved. Senate needs to represent organizations equally and we need to be smarter and more efficient. Wish to recognize all organizations, not just the ones we fund. This includes Greeks. In regards to NYPIRG, he was looking for a fair contract. He just asked for reports and justification of funding, the audit is immaterial and the general ledger does not differentiate from campus. He wonders why this is all hidden. He Does not have ill will towards NYPIRG, and you can not contest their issues, they are perfect. What he has contested is their justification of where 107 our money is going. 108 Thanks for some fun, and really enjoyed the position. 109 Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President 110 Announces that he is not suing anyone. Discusses with the Senate a memo he received 111 from President Stanley which is a response to RES.38.13.

Reminds the Senate of the upcoming miss-a-meal, 115 and expresses some concern in making this a success. Senator of the month award was 116 given to Justin Barbur. Opposes a fee increase, because there is not justification, and we 117 are showing no long term planning. Will need plan, we are not and its hurting the 118 students here.

Thanked the E-board for their support and 128 help this year and was upset that the Senate would not attempt to see their hard work. 129 Daniel Preston, Director of Special Challenged Student Issues: Wanted to express his 130 continued involvement regardless of his position in the next administration. Thanked the E131 board and the Senate for all their help and participation this past year. Thanked the Senate 132 for letting him give them homework. Feels the work done this year with the fire evacuation 133 resolution and the diversity resolution have the potential to really change and effect the 134 student body in amazing ways. 135 VIILSenators Issue Forum 136 Hershkowitz: Expresses some concerns as to a student who attended last weeks meeting, 137 who also stated they would never come back to the Senate. 138 Randolph: Off Campus Students need to go to the Off Campus/Commuter Forum 139 IX.

Robinson: Motion to Amend: Change the 2"* whereas to read, "Since NYPIRG has been allocated money for the last 11 years, and it was not included by Budget Council in the proposed 2003-04 budget, it does not provide the opportunity or funding for the new SA President to negotiate a contract." 2"d Pufky 16-0-4 Passed

Campus Center will be built over the parking lot attached to the west of Swetman. Will include new student government rooms as well as a hockey arena and an auditorium. Also will soon begin construction of Riggs Hall. Olenick: What problem will the new student union solve? DeSantis: Said it will academic and physical goals. Gap in the center of campus creates a wind tunnel, a building blocking the hole will make the campus more pedestrian friendly. Will also promote clubs, social activities and career services, all of which are elements of student success, because they would like more centrally located. Cannon: What are the plans for Hewitt Union? DeSantis: Immediate time it will be empty, unsure of future plans. Randolph: Has parking been considered? Need area to hold mass amounts of people for hockey games, etc. DeSantis: Parking will be included, unsure of plan. Robinson: How will construction on Riggs impact triples?

DeSantis: Swetman and Poucher won't be done at the same time. Sutherland: If everything runs smoothly when will everything be finished? DeSantis: Hopes to finish Johnson in fall 2003, Riggs in fall 2005 and Campus Center in fall 2006. Randolph: What's the projected life span of the high rise buildings?

PAGE 16

DeSantis: 30 years, but everything doesn't fail at same time. When something breaks down, they fix it. NYPIRG: Shawn McConnell: Thanked Jen Pufky for getting students registered to vote. Stressed the importance of getting students involved with voting. Said we are 47'h in the nation for how much we put into education. Raising tuition will harm us in the future, force students to drop out. It's important to invest in young minds. Empowering students to vote is important. Executive Re~ort: President James Seeley: Talked about Geology Club. Stated the event is this weekend and will be hard to put on with so little time. $700 is a lot for one weekend. Senate really doesn't know much about them. Stressed organizations have to come sooner. Believes that similar situations have led to problems with organizations, as was partly the case with Capoeira. Kane: Wonders if there is any progress with finding more justices. Seeley: Had a difficult time, interviewed many people. No one qualified for the job yet. Betancourt: yield to Geology club: Submitted constitution three weeks ago. Stated it wasn't poor planning, it was lack of communication. Vice President Gregory Lawson: Talked about miss-a-meal, asked Senators to sign up. Read letter from Capoeira and Larry Provost. Provost requests aid for children. Thanks Senate, states meetings are running smooth. Director of Finance Charla Blum: Explains purchase order. 6501 ... $2500 6502 ... $6773 6503 ... $3470 6505 ... $3000 6506 ... $4000 Jen Clark: SA Assembly had a good turn out. Working on organization space for involvement fair, any feedback let her know. Landlord came into office and asked for Frank Salvador ... was good to be recognized by landlord. Salvador: Reminded Senate of Softball Thursday at 6:00 p.m. Encourages more women to sign up. Said mayor is playing! Park committee meeting, tomorrow 8:00 p.m. at pathfinder. Senator Issues Form: Lukowski: Working with OTEA, some exciting stuff coming. Randolph: Stressed the importance of voting. Encourages everyone to register and vote. Kane: Needs to work on communication between Senate and Supreme Court. Got an email saying the Geology club wasn't approved today, tried really hard to get it approved in a day. The Supreme Court is overloaded. Robinson: Agrees there is a lot of miscommunication. Would like it to be improved. Betancourt: Reads letter from Hart Hall. Cannon: Reported rape, issue we need to address. Don't be silent.

S~ecial Orders: SLE. 38.07 Funding for Geo Club Second: Pufky Kane: motion to amend in the following ways: strike "and t-shirts." On line 4 after "trip" insert "for Friday October 11,2002." Strike line 13 "whereas ..." Change line 17 to '$750.' Change "transferred" to "authorized from account 6502 for..." Strike line 21. Change line 26 from "$450" to "$330." Strike lines 27 and 28. Change total on line 30 to "$330." (cross out equation) Lukowski: motion to vote Second: Sutherland 23-0-0 PASSED Kane: Thinks it's a good idea. Pufky: Supports, wants to get things for the geology club moving. Robinson: Supports, they went through a lot of work. Randolph: Supports. Olenick: Wonders why there was no follow up made by Geo Club. May have been a good idea to have made a phone call. Thinks $350 (new amount) is more reasonable. Cannon: Asks what 'gear' is? Geo Club: Gear is hammers, chisels, etc. Will now be paying for camping themselves. Sutherland: Motion to vote Second: Robinson 22-0-1 PASSED General Orders: SLE. 38.06 Tier 2 Funding Lukowski: In favor, trusts judgment of budget council.

PAGE 18

Robinson: What's recommended from finance? Pufky: Discussed it, a lot of organizations didn't come to appeal. If passed it will reinforce that they can appeal, incentive for organizations to come. Cannon: Motion to amend in the following ways: change line 18 to 2000, change line 30 to 2000, change line 33 to 2000 change line 35 to 25,000 Second: Robinson Motion passed. Lukowski: Thinks that it's crazy to give them money because we want them to come back. Doesn't think Senate should give money just to be nice. Betancourt: Someone on budget counsel told organizations they had fair amount so don't appeal. Olenick: If it goes back to the general account, organizations are going to ask for it again. Might as well give it to the people who put the appeals in. Bishop: These organizations took the time to put appeals in and obviously need the money. Cannon: When organizations come for money its usually unforeseen costs. Take into consideration how much effort organizations put in. Beck: Motion to vote Second: Robinson 18-2-2 PASSED Pufky: Discussed in finance, first question, why didn't you appeal? Why not fundraise? Betancourt: Request to vote Second: Robinson 20-1-2 PASSED SLE. 38.03 Amendment to Financial Policy #1 Tier Process Reform Pufky: motion to wave reading. Cannon: Motion to refer to policy and finance for a period of one week. RES. 38.01 Resolution for Fire Safety for Student with Special Needs Second: Pufky Betancourt: Brought to Health and Safety Committee and this is what we came up with. Lukowski: Motion to vote. 22-0-1 PASSED Res. 38.03 STUDENTS' VOTES COUNT Second: Robinson Cannon: 51,000 passed by Senate and approved by President Stanely. The Democratic process is not being upheld. Betancourt: Student has taken every step to say they want NYPIRG on campus. We need to pass this. Olenick: States his hall does not support NYPIRG. Some students say NYPIRG got signatures of students coming out of bars off Bridge Street. His building is opposed to NYPIRG. Suggests maybe that $5 1,000 be spent on something else.

PAGE 19

Lukowski: Doesn't believe all students want this. It's a political organization. The money could be better spent somewhere else instead of suing a company somewhere far away. Randolph: Its getting ludicrous that we have no contract, again the students have shown their support over and over again for this organization yet we are still ignoring them. Robinson: It is a non-political organization. Has spent a lot of time learning about it. Smith: To say petition doesn't count because NYPIRG spent a lot of time getting signatures is ridiculous. Pass this; it will say when students vote it means something. Olenick: It's not the representation of the entire campus. 1 in 4 students is not good representation. Randolph: Thinks we're lucky to have NYPIRG on campus. Dellwo: Not going to get everyone's signature. But either way got the majority of the votes. Washington: NYPIRG brings important issues, and supports them. Lukwoski: motion to vote, call to question 15-5-1 PASSED to vote the Question was called Vote on bill 18-3-1 PASSED Roll Call: Cardea, Lukowski, Beck, Kane, Betancourt, Sutherland, Bishop, Cooper, Dellwo, Proxy Mitchel, Randolph, Smith, Washington, Farrell, McAllister, Walker, Robinson, Bakr, Olenick, Cannon, Guzman, Pufky, Hershkowitz Motion to adjourn: 9:10 Pufky Second: Robinson Respectful submitted by, Linnae Lehr, Student Association Senate Clerk

Past years officers didn't communicate very well. Have a new coach, Father Ed, and at least 50 active members. Will soon be doing a technique clinic. Team almost dissolved last year, things have change, this year everyone is very dedicated. Doing car wash at Walmart, as well as a can drive and other fund raising events. Boats are falling apart, they probably will not pass inspection at races this year. Trying hard to raise money themselves to buy a new boat. hfky: How much would a new boat cost? Crew Club: A new boat would cost $17,000-$20,000. Looking to buy a used one for around $6,000. Sutherland: Are you able to repair the run down boats? Crew Club: Probably just as expensive to repair the boats as it would be to buy new ones becake they are so old. Betencourt: What will money from fund-raising go towards? Crew Club: Probably just equipment. Lukowski: Crew club is a great organization, boats are a major issue. Randolph: The turn out is incredible tonight. ~ershkiwitz: Knows many people involved with crew. They work really hard. Shawn McConnell: Thanks everyone who helped out with voter registration, Beck, McCallister, Olenick, Smith, Pufky, Dellwo and Cooper. Able to register 295 people in one day. Better than most campuses over NY State. Overall registered 823 people on the campus this year. Fighting education

increase this year still, next step putting together cards that say we are against tuition increases and sending them to Governor Pataki. Need help getting more cards, any time volunteers are welcome. Higher Education meeting 730 every Monday night. Senator Smith is leading higher education efforts this year. NYPIRG conference is next weekend at SUNY Binghamton. Many workshops to attend. Salvador: What should we be paying for tuition? McConnell: It should be affordable to students of all socially economic backgrounds. Everyone should be able to afford it. College is become more of a necessity. We should be able to provide an education that's almost free. Salvador: What is affordable? McConnell: Right now tuition is not affordable. New York is the 14'~ most expensive in the country, increasing will make it worse. Guest of the Senate: Peggy Rowe and William King, Audit Report: Went over reports, see attachments numbers one and two. Olenick: Asked what securities were? King: If for some reason bank closed, the bank has certain things they could sell. Guarantees you would get all your money back. Mary Schoeler, University Chief Technology Officer: Robinson: Many students have a problem that the Internet crashes everyday, wonders why we pay fee. Technology Officer: Fee is just incorporated in tuition so money is there if it is needed. It's just as expensive if two students use the Internet in a room or one. Schoeler: Some of problems are self-inflicted. Issues with Napster have increased. Companies are notifying the campus when students are downloading illegal music and movies. This creates a new set of traffic. Technology Officer: Hopes within the next couple months everything will be worked out. It is a major problem and top priority. Pufky: Are you violating students' rights by finding down loads? Schoeler: Either way, it's a violation of state and federal law. SUNY Oswego doesn't look into the computer, companies such as SONY find these downloads and contact the school. Olenick: Some Mac's in the library don't have Internet Explorer wonders why? Schoeler: Students could use Macs if they want to, but are trying to balance the choices. Won't be eliminating Mac's but will be making it easier for those students who want to use the other computers. Randolph: In worst case scenario, what can the cost be. Technology Officer: It will be improved, no matter what the cost. It is a problem. Pufky: Will tech fee increase? Technology Officer: It has been increased, unsure if it will go up again. It's all tied to tuition.

PAGE 4

Olenick: Stated that dial up works all the time. Kane: Asked if they were suggesting we call up every time something happens? Schoeler: Maybe, in some cases it might help narrow down the problem. Olenick: If Verizon comes to our campus will phone rates increase or decrease? Technology Officer: Thinks we'll have an excellent plan next year. Adding special features to web site. Soon be able to pay tuition online, apply for graduation, etc. Nick Lyons, Vice President for Finance -discussed the likelihood of a tuition increase, as well as the reality of every student paying for Ethernet. leaders hi^ Conference Absentees: Asian Association, President: Unable to attend, miscommunication, didn't pick up mail. All E. board committee members are new this year. Recommended using email next year. Accounting Society, President: Got the memo the day after. Normally checks mail often, was a one time occurrence. Biology Club, President: Didn't attend conference due to miscommunication. Black Friars: Confused SA with the LEAD Center. When they called LEAD Center it was confused with their closed conference and said Black Friars didn't have to attend. Olenick: Suggests some type of packet with specific dates for all organizations. Cheerleading: Miscommunication between President and club. Circle K, Vice President: Already had an event planned that day playing bingo with the elderly. College Community Orchestra, President: First time being President, missed mail, apologizes. Community Service, President: New officers, missed mail. Cope: Communication error, ensures it won't happen again. Has solidified structure. Will try and work closer with SA. Delsarte: Unable to make conference due to miscommunication. Taking steps to solve errors. Highest membership ever and are taking full responsibility for mistake. Self Defense, President: Didn't attend conference, last year club was non-existent.

Executive Re~ort: President Jim Seeley: Has taken steps to correct the mistakes with mail. Should be easier next year. Introduced Kenny Wagner, Ass. Co. Director of Greek Affairs.

PAGE 5

Kenny Wagner: Is currently the President of his fraternity. Goal is to reestablish Greek affairs and bi laws. Has not been very organized in past, hopes to fix that. Pufky: Would there be any favoritism to your fraternity? Wagner: Definitely not, no affiliation on a Greek Affairs stand point. Dellwo: Do you get along well with other Greek Directors? Wagner: Yes, very well. 21 -0-0 Comforrned Read a letter concerning NYPIRG. Stated none of his actions have gone without thought. There is not $51,000 worth of NYPIRG on this campus. Challenges everyone to come visit him and sit down and talk with him. See attachment number three. Vice President Gregory Lawson: If someone wants to be a guest they must contact me Monday before two. Committees discussed legislation procedure. Looking to change process. Senate is doing a wonderful job. Asked about miss-a-meal. Director of Finance, Charla Blum: 6501 ... .$2,500 6502 ... .$6,422 6503 ... .$3,470 6505 ... .$3,000 6506 ... .$4,000 Geology spent $301, money went back into account. They thanked Senate. Made friendly amendment to Oswegonian bill, should say authorized not allocated. Frank Salvador, Director Off Campus Services: Senate won the softball game, 26-15! Mentioned common council. Will talk with parking council to demand people get more than a 24hour notice. Hershkowitz: Softball was a good time. George Bacellas, Executive Assistant to the President: Sent out email for bills being submitted next week, if you want to sponsor email him soon. Thanked everyone for the softball game. Senators Issue Form: Lukowski: Hopes we never have to have organizations apologize like that again. Dellwo: Directed to President Seeley, Wonders how NYPIRG didn't get a significant portion of the votes. Seeley: The referendum had only 500 people out to vote. Not a significant amount. Dellwo: If majority rules than majority rules. Randolph: Asked when the last time negotiations took place? Seeley: Two o'clock this afternoon. Smith: Of course there was a lower voter turn out, there was no publicity and only two booths in the union. Called attention to the resolution passed last week stating Students Votes Count. Pufky: Directed to President Seeley, what number would you like to see for

PAGE 6

a voter turn out. Thinks its great you want Senators to come and ask questions, but have already tried that twice this summer. Also thinks its great you have been going to all the hall council meetings, however President Seeley said what I had to say was not important so encourages Senate not to go meet with him. Olenick: Reason President is separate from Senate is to provide different voices. The idea that we can guide the President's hand with a resolution is not a democracy. Randolph: The question on the second referendum was misleading. Lukwoski: The students really don't have all the facts. Not many people turn out for hall council meetings. Thinks students really don't want NYPIRG. Cannon: Last week Senate talked about rape. Wants everyone to represent constituents and go to Take Back the Night. Needs support, make a stand and say Oswego won't put up with violence and rape. Smith: Although Senate doesn't guide the president's hand, wishes the students did. Pufky: Referring to Larry Provost's letters, wants to try and do something campus wide for the children. Committee Rewrts: Policy: Washington, Vice Chair. Discussed time for meeting. No problem with SLE. 38.03. Procedure: Assigned Liaisons. Proposed next weeks meeting be moved back an hour so everyone can attend Take Back the Night. Finance: Didn't meet. Previous meeting recommended SLE. 38.03 for passage. Involvement: Met Wednesday at 5:20 in Cooper. Senator Betencourt gave out Petitions in Mackin. Discussed SA page construction. Talked more on calendar project. Finance: Did not meet. Meeting will be rescheduled for senators to attend take back the night. Health and Safety: Will be looking into ways to promote security escorts. Elections: Attendance issues. Talked more about fall elections procedures. Set up a time line.

Need a new machine, it costs $800, want the same model. Talked to former editors and they remember that the machine was ancient. Cannon: Had a meeting on Sunday to talk about this bill, found out the machine broke, went home and wrote another bill. Thought it was attached to email. Pufky: Do you need to money this week? Oswegonian: Yes, the machine won't arrive this week though. Cannon: Motion to suspend the rules, to amend the agenda to put intended bill under Special Orders.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OS WEGO REPORTABLE CONDITIONS AND MANAGEMENT SUGGESTIONS *** JULY 2002

PAGE 9

DRAFT July 1 8,2002 To the Student Senate of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego In planning and performing our audit of the financial statements of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Student Association"), for the year ended June 30, 2002, we noted certain internal control structure matters that we consider reportable conditions under standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiencies in the design or operation of the internal control structure that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the Student Association's ability to record, process, summarize and report financial data consistent with the assertions of management in the financial statements. The following summarizes such reportable conditions and other matters that we believe you should consider. Reportable Conditions 1. ESTABLISH PROCEDURES TO PREPARE AND MAINTAIN A STATEMENT OF HNANCIAL POSITION. The Student Association does not currently prepare a statement of financial position and, accordingly, such a report is not presented to the Student Senate at their monthly meetings. As a result, certain balances including cash, investments, accounts receivable, other assets, accounts payable, other liabilities and net assets are only reviewed on an annual basis. Ow: audit discovered that many of these general ledger accounts were not reconciled or adjusted during the year and, therefore, there was no supporting detail at year-end. This results in inaccurate and incomplete financial reporting throughout the year. We recommend the Student Association adopt a procedure requiring formal reconciliations be prepared for all general ledger accounts on a timely basis, either monthly or quarterly. The reconciliations should be prepared by the individual responsible for maintaining the detail and reviewed and approved by supervisory personnel. All reconciling items identified should .be promptly investigated, and necessary adjustments should be made. We also recommend, the Director of Finance prepare a statement of financial position with

PAGE 10

-2DRAFT comparative totals for prior periods at least on a quarterly basis. This statement should be presented to the Student Senate along with the statement of revenues and expenses compared to budget. Currently, the Director of Finance is developing procedures in which she and the Association's bookkeeper will be reconciling and adjusting the accounts on a quarterly basis and presenting a statement of financial position to the Student Senate. 2. ENSURE THAT ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE PROPERLY RECORDED IN THE GENERAL LEDGER. During our examination, we noted that the general ledger does not reflect all of the daily transactions for one of the Student Association's bank accounts. The Student Association provides a check cashing service for the campus community by cashing checks at a check cashing window located in Hewitt Union. It is our understanding that on a daily basis checks that have been cashed at the check cashing window are brought to the bank and deposited into the Student Association's bank account. It is also our understanding that during this same daily trip to the bank an equal amount of cash is withdrawn from the account in order to replenish the check cashing cash drawer for the following day's business. We noted that the daily deposits and daily withdrawals are not reflected in the general ledger. As the general ledger is the official record of the Student Association's financial transactions and because it is management's obligation to record, process, summarize and report financial data, we recommend that these daily transactions be properly posted to the general ledger. This procedure will not only ensure that an adequate audit trail is available but will also reduce the risk associated with the possible misappropriation of Student Association assets. 3. OBTAIN SENATE APPROVAL FOR SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE ACCOUNTING SYSTEM. The Student Senate is responsible for the oversight of the Association. These duties require that they have access to information regarding major changes within the accounting system. During our examination, we found that the Association's Key Bank accounts were closed and the remaining funds were transferred to newly opened accounts at HSBC Bank. We were unable to find evidence in the Student Senate minutes that these actions had been approved by the Board. We recommend that the Association develop and implement procedures to ensure that the Student Senate is informed of significant actions affecting the accounting and reporting system and, if applicable, that changes be formally approved by the Senate prior to implementation.

PAGE 11

Other Management Suggestions 1. PREPARE AN ACCOUNTING MANUAL FOR THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION. During our audit, we found the Student Association does not have a fonnal accounting manual. We recommend a formal accounting manual be developed that would include the following areas: a) Job descriptions for all Student Association accounting staff, outlines of operational procedures, including those performed by the outside bookkeeper; b) Descriptions of the various programs, clubs and activities; c) Definitions and descriptions of all general ledger accounts, in addition to achart of accounts for the Student Association; d) Description of the sources of entries to general ledger, including accounting journals prepared and maintained monthly and annually; e) Control functions, including required approvals on source documents and reconciliations; and f) Any information considered necessary for consistent accounting treatment of transactions made by the Student Association. The principal advantages and benefits to be derived from such a manual are as follows: a) Promote consistency and uniformity in the treatment of accounting transactions; b) Provide guidance and reference for all persons performing related functions, including coordination between functions performed by Student Association staff and those provided by the outside bookkeeper; c) Decrease training costs by providing guidance during periods of employee absence or annual turnover of the Director of Finance; and d) Provide opportunities for constructive improvement of present procedures through periodic review of the accounting manual. During the past fiscal year, the Director of Finance started the Student Association's accounting manual. The current Director of Finance has been working on additions and revisions to this manual.

PAGE 12

-4DRAFT 2. ESTABLISH ASSET CLASSES FOR THE CAPITALIZED PROPERTY AND EOUIPMENT PURCHASES. During the past fiscal year, the Student Association established procedures to capitalize property and equipment. The previous Director of Finance set up separate general ledger accounts for each capitalized asset, along with the corresponding depreciation expense account and accumulated depreciation account. Consequently, the number of general ledger accounts increased significantly during the past fiscal year. We recommend the Student Association establish asset classes so that similar types of assets can be classified and recorded in the general ledger using only a few accounts rather than each asset having its own set of general ledger accounts. The bookkeeper would then maintain a separate fixed asset ledger that would support the property and equipment general ledger accounts. In accordance with professional standards, our consideration of the internal control structure was solely for the purpose of determining our auditing-procedures for the purpose of our report on the financial statements and not to provide assurance on the internal control structure and would not necessarily disclose all matters that might be reportable conditions. In addition, because of inherent limitations in any internal control structure, errors or irregularities may occur and not be detected by such control structure. This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Board of Directors, Members of the Student Senate and others within the Student Association and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

PAGE 14

DRAFT Independent Auditor's Report July 18,2002 To the Board of Directors and Student Senate of the State University College at Oswego We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2002 and 2001, and the related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Association's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in -accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An,audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. As more fully described in Note 1 to the financial statements, prior to the year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged current operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. In our opinion, except for the effects of not capitalizing expenditures for property and equipment as discussed in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2002 and 2001, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Association prospectively changed its accounting policy regarding property and equipment.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Note 1 Surnmarv of sinnificant accounting policies The Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") is comprised of various organizations carrying on student and academic activities at the State University College at Oswego, New York (the "College"). These activities are financed in part from the proceeds of mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Disbursement of the fees collected is made in accordance with an annual budget adopted by the Student Senate. Basis of accounting The financial statements of the Association have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and, accordingly, reflect all significant receivables, payables and other liabilities. The more significant accounting policies are as follows: Basis of mesentation The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Financial Accounting Standard No. 117 (SFAS 117), "Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Organizations." Under this pronouncement, the Association is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets and permanently restricted net assets. Unrestricted net assets Unrestricted net assets consist of the current operating activities of the Association's budgetary funds. The amounts are unrestricted and are available for the support of operations. The Association had no temporarily or permanently restricted net assets as of June 30,2002 and 2001. Reserve for encumbrances Encumbrances represent obligations, such as purchase orders or other commitments outstanding at year-end for materials or services not yet received, and are recorded as a designation of unrestricted net assets. Designated net assets The Association is required to maintain ten percent (10%) or a minimum of $125,000 of the total predetennined revenues of the Association as designated net assets for reserve requirements at all times. Designated net assets include required reserves as described above, plus other pre-designated assets, such as property and equipment replacements. Income taxes The Association is exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and under similar requirements of New York State law. Accordingly, no provision has been made for Federal or state income taxes. Cash and cash eauivalents For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Association considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Investments Investments represent certificates of deposit having maturities beyond three months and are stated at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates market value.

PAGE 19

-2DRAFT Concentration of credit risk The Association maintains cash balances and investments in certificates of deposit at several financial institutions. Cash and certificates of deposit in excess of the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are subject to credit risk. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association executed a collateral agreement with one financial institution whereby the bank has pledged certain securities to collateralize any balance the Association has on deposit at that institution in excess of the federal deposit insurance limit. The Association had no uninsured cash or certificates of deposit balances at June 30, 2002 and approximately $249,000 of uninsured cash and investments in certificates of deposit at June 30,2001. Pro~ertv and ecluivment During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, in order to conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, the Association adopted an accounting policy that prospectively requires purchases of property and equipment of $500 or more be capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation expense is calculated using the straight. line method over an assets useful life, which currently ranges from 3 to 7 years. Prior to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged current operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. The effect on the change in net assets of prospectively adopting the capitalization policy was to increase the change in net assets by $92,483. Property and equipment consisted of the following: Equipment Computers Less Accumulated depreciation June 30, Depreciation expense reflected in the statement of activities for the year ended June 30,2002 was $13,411. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of support, revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

PAGE 20

DRAFT Note 2 Commitments and contingencies The Association paid $15,500 and $15,000 for management and accounting services and purchased approximately $45,000 and $31,000 in dining services from Auxiliary Services of the State University College at Oswego, Inc. ("Auxiliary Services") for the fiscal years ended June 30,2002 and 2001, respectively. During the fiscal year ended June 30,2002, the Association received a $20,000 donation from Auxiliary Services for the purchase of a campus ambulance. The Association entered into an agreement in August 2001 with Centro of Oswego, Inc. ("Centro") to provide regular route service to students for discounted rates. In consideration of this, the Association agreed to subsidize Centro for these services. The agreement required the Association to make five payments of $13,900 in fiscal 2002. The Association has entered into a two-year agreement with Centro for similar services and covers the fiscal years ended June 30,2003 and 2004. The current agreement requires the Association to make five payments of $14,000 and $14,900, respectively. The Association paid $51,632 and $49,960 to The New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc. (the "NYPIRG") for the fiscal years ended June 30,2002 and 2001, respectively. The Association has an annual agreement with NYPIRG to pay them $4 per student each fall and spring semester for use in providing legitimate services and materials necessary to cany out the research, co-curricular programming aid public interest goals of NYPIRG. The Association paid $61,876 to the State University of New York at Oswego for various expenses associated with the campus intramural and recreation programs. An agreement, dated March 30, 2001, was signed and covered the period from June 30, 2001 to June 30,2002. The Association has entered into a similar agreement for the fiscal year ending June 30,2003 requiring two equal payments of $35,700.

Robinson: Call to question. 4-15-1 FAILED Randolph: Editor is a member of organization. Is it fair to give members a discount just because they get a check?

Give students right to have a say. We have a formal say in what goes on. The school needs to respect our authority. Hershkowitz: Important to vote our own opinions. That is why we are here. Kane: This bill is not clearly written. Lawson: Can be vague. Didn't want to over legislate. This is a new thing, requires time to get up and running. We need respect from the University. This is the first small step. Robinson: Someone asked, Why would they take the student seriously? Kane: Why is this binding? This bill is presumptuous. Olenick: Thinks its presumptuous for us not to. It is a little vague but it allows more in future. Turner: Thinks this is great. Need to get more power back to Senate.

Hershkowitz: We should be able to make more decisions. Its not a new concept. At some point the University took us more seriously. Pufky: Something we need to take control of. Tremendous first step and it wiU have a big effect on policy, we can't always go to them. Smith: Cant afford to worry if they will like it or recognize it. If that is the mind set we think we are inferior and they are superior. They might not appreciate us declaring ourselves as equals. Barbur: Support bill. Betancourt: Motion to relinquish chair. McAUister: Motion to vote, and was objected Kane: People didn't show up for parking committee. Better ways for us to earn power and respect. Why don't we get out there more?

Funding for schools has gone down. Issue for all students. Randolph: Level playing field. Rigid class structure and its getting worse. We need to do something, its bad for America. Robinson: Constituents do not want tuition increase. Olenick: Intent is valid but tuition increase will increase financial aid. Taking money from those who have it and giving it to those who don't. Salvador: There is a lack of research here. Named things wrong with the bill such as, line twenty. Enrollment did drop, not necessarily because of tuition. Cannon: Call to question. 6-8-5 FAlLED McAllister: All have minds made up now. Turner: Students deserve more. Barbur: If this passes, we will just be a name on a piece of paper? Smith: Will be playing an active role in states name. Kane: No one wants tuition to go up. Last year I was on Athletic Board. Fees went up because more money was needed. Money won't come from anywhere else. Seeley: Unrealistic to say tuition should stay the same. When we discredit ourselves they stop listening. At least fix the this bill through amendments.

Amroval of the Aaenda: -Objection Olenick, wishes to add President Seeley to Executive Report. -2"d Walker. No objection. -Motion to approve Washington, 2* Walker. Public Comment and Announcement Shaun McConnell, NYPIRG: Discussed the issues regarding a tuition increase for SUNY, he feels there will be an increase regardless. Discussed how enrollment declined the year of and shortly after the last tuition increase. Shaun went on to discuss the tap situation with Governor Pataki. Shaun is so passionate about the tuition situation because he faced a difficult situation when he was an undergrad and was forced to work 12 hr days during the summer and is still in debt. He feels there will be a great number of people who will be forced to drop out if tuition is increased. There are plans for a "hike" across the state to Albany which he will provide more information on next meeting. Guests of the Senate: Charles Weeks. Dlrector of Residence Life and Houslnq -Mr. Weeks discussed his wsition and his office. He went on to discuss the situations regarding triples and the smoking policy and a new room selection procedure as a result of both. -0lineck: questioned the situation in Scales hall regarding the weight room. -Weeks: Fitness rooms and situations are handled in the fitness centers, that is why ResILife has offered that service to us. Those residence halls that do have fitness rooms must meet the requirements of ReslLi. Weight rooms in residence halls will not be funded by the department of ResILife. -Kane asked about the situation regarding triples. Herskowitz also asked about the triple situation. -Weeks replied that he does not want any more triples and anyone who wants to de-triple should be offered the opportunity to. There will be roughly 300 people not coming back next semester and an estimated 100 new students. There was a survey conducted but the results are not yet known. -Robinson asked if it was possible t6 include ResNet in the room rent. Kane also questioned the ResNet situation because other schools do not charge an extra fee. -Weeks replied that he is not comfortable with that because it will raise the cost of room rent.

PAGE 15

VII. VIII. XIV. -Kane asked about the procedures are established in regards to the removal of RA's. -Week replied that the procedure is parallel for what is used for other employees. It is dependent upon the performance of the RA and their violation. With certain areas there are gray areas there is no room for discussion. RA's hold a very sensitive position and that is important to realize that when a violation has occurred. Executive R~Do~~s James Seeley, Student Association President #6501 $2500 #6502 $7 1 27 #6503 $2491 #6505 $3000 The purpose for the vetoed legislation was because it was nat avoidable. Senators must come discuss legislation with him. The Senate is mostly new and do not know eVerything fie President knows, and that could Be helpful. He believes there are many unanswered questions with SLE.38.15, and does not want it to go through tonight. He believes that the Ontarian would work best if it was another division of the Student Association, not a clublorganization. He feels this because it would add stability and it would ensure us that we have a yearbook. President Seeley believes that the election law should be postponed until next election year, and believes that Senators should look to see what is best for the students. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President He received a letter from former Senator Provost who is in Afghanistan, feel free to stop by and read it. The Senate's miss-a-meal program helped to fund 45 mammograms for women who ww!d most likely not have had the financial resources to receive them. Announces there will be amendments from the Elections Committee as a whole, they wilt divide and gone through independently as to ensure a fair and speedy process. Announces that there will not be a senator of the month for the month of December. The reason being that he did not feel any Senator went above and beyond what was called on. He felt that the Senators who were active took action because that's what they were supposed to do. Vice President Lawson acknowledged Senator Barbur because of his hard work on the parking issue as well as his dedication to the Senate. He also thanked Senator Kane for her hard work as well as her dedication to the Policy Committee, regardless of its poor attendance. Senator Issues Forum -Senator Turner expressed some at the ability of the Student Association limiting of the protections in the Bill of Rights. -Senator Kane expressed concerns regarding committee attendance. She also informed the Senate that Senator Sutherland is doing well. Commlttee Remrts Policy Committee: Looked over the amendments to SLE.38.17, and also havetheir own. Attendance was low. Procedure Committee: Weak attendance. They have amendments to the legislation on the table.

The Oswegonian has changed a great deal and believes the changes have helped to make the paper something students want to read. Lukowski and McAllister: Concerns expressed for the budget of the Oswegonian and why these were not budgeted for. Turner expressed come concerns over who was getting the recognition for these awards. Randolph reads the paper regularly and is a great admirer of the changes, however he feels it inappropriate to take these funds from the emergency account. He feels the bill is not worth failing and that we should reward them. Lukowski: they are a good paper but with a 41,000 a year budget they could find $1 25.00. Bishop: believed it to be such a small amount that we shouldn't be making such a big deal over it. Robinson asked a point of information to Senator Cannon, if Finance Committee recommended passing or failing this bill. Cannon replied failed. Kane: Expressed concerns from constituents that these funds were going to be going for individual awards not for the entire paper. Proposed amendment: Strike lines 23,24 and 25. New total$27.

SLE.38.20 Student Association Election Law On behatf of the Elections Committee Senator Pufky make the attached amendments which are labeled Attachment #1 and #2. The vote count is in brackets. Randolph: motion to amend on line 324 remove the word "all". 2"d by Robinson. Vote: 19-0-0 Vote on SLE.38.20: 19-0-0 VETOED SLE.38.14 By Law Amendment Definition of Quorum Robinson: Disagrees with the reasoning for the veto. He feels this number is safe. Randolph Agrees. Kane: believes we should overturn because the number is not all we need to look at dedication is the factor that matters most. Betancourt yields time to Salvadore who states an increased number for quorum is not much to ask for. Salvadore yields to Bacallias who says that a lower number will lessen the quality. Lawson reads from Roberts Rules and states that quorum is not a number to protect the majority but the minority. It is suppose to be a safety line, not a determining factor when conducting business. Kane agrees and adds that by no way would this lower standards. Pufky requests the chair to take a vote. 213rds Needed to Overturn 16-2-1 Veto Overturned VETOED SLE.38.15 Amendment #1 to SLE.35.01: Creating of Cards and Discount for Senators Robinson feels the reasoning specifically an executive order could be easily changed and this is the only way to ensure that the change stays. Randolph believes that if this is what the Senate wishes than this is the law and means to institute that change. He suggests overturning. Betancourt yields to Salvadore who suggest writing something both parties agree. Lawson adds that there is some danger relaying on Executive Order when there is nothing in the Student Association bylaws defining such an action. Olenick feels that it will last longer if we pass this law, and it will be harder to repeal. This is not overstepping the bounds of the SA Senate. Bishop calls the question which passes 18-1 -0. Vote (Y3rds Needed to Overturn) 13-6-0 Veto Overturned. XI. New Legislation RES.38.06 Recognition for the Women's Center Robinson withdrawals with no objection. XII.

Jen: Sorry I couldn't make the meeting Monday night. You and the Committee and Greg have done a great deal to improve the Election Law. I believe that in the interest of clarity it is important to simplify the organization of section III, paragraph VII. I have suggested a change in title because in its present form the proposed Law does not address disqualification or any other sanction directly. My suggestions are: VIL Process for Addressing Violations of the Election Law P' / 9 The Senate Elections Committee shall receive and record all alleged A-&O discrepancies or violations of this Election Law Q nd pw'lde, a cwy a\\ a \\~qcc\ chcrepd~ or~~~dcmm +s A -e senate Elections Committee chairperson will report said discrepancies or k~~~~~ alleged violations to the Senate in a timely manner. Che if 'juShCC gjfhe Senate Elections Committee will investigate and report to the Senate on the strt.rstarrce of alleged discrepancies or violations. &A pon determining by majority vote of the Committee that a violation of the ction Law has occurred, The Senate Elections Committee, by majority vote, shall issue a public report ndicating any of the following conditions: J W~%O 5dcYs mG4h-Q GxnrnitCe9WK 1. No violation of the Election Law has been found. 2. A violation of the Election Law requiring Senate Elections Committee action has been found through investigation. In this instance, the Senate Elections Committee shall meet with the violating parties to explain the findings and clarify the applicable guidance as prescribed in the Elections Law.. 3. A violation of the Elections Law requiring adjudication by the Student Association Supreme Court has been found through investigation. In this instance, the Senate Election$ Committee Chairperson will file a complaint on behalf of the Committee to the Clerk of the Supreme Court and shall represent the Student Association as plaintiff in an&usequen4 adjudication. 4. Section VII of the Election Law in no way supercedes the right of an individual student to file a complaint with the Supreme Court. E. The Supreme Court, upon finding that a violation of Student Association law or policy has occurred, shall make a ruling of law andfor a ruling of fact as required by the evidence, shall sanction the in so far as the violation is found by the Court to have a of the election. I hope this helps.

Last time there was a major tuition increase 30,000 students had to drop out of school. Will be speaking out against tuition next week. If anyone is adversely affected you should come out, probably an open mic. Legislatives do read papers. Recently when Pataki was in Syracuse NYPIRG found and protested tuition hike, made NY Times, Post Standard, and local television stations. To protest the tuition increase there will be people walking from Buffalo to Albany to end in Albany for a massive rally. Each school is responsible for different sections of the walk. If SA wants to participate you can walk together for a portion and make some signs. Kane: Who will this affect by the tuition increase? McConnell: This will affect all students. All tuitions will go up. Pufky: For those who have scholarships. Need to speak to whomever you received your scholarship from to find out if it will cover the tuition increase. Guest of the Senate: Mike Pastella, Assistant Director Student Org. Services, Questions senators such as, At what point are you here for the organizations, or resident halls, or average Oswego student? What you do with your knowledge is a big deal? When will you, as a Senator, draw the line? If you have a voice, tell Albany, Washington and the United Nations what you think. There are some big issues in front of Senate. Last war was in 1991, last major budget increase was in

PAGE 26

1995. Need to inform students of what's going on. How will your feelings change over time? Remember the greater good. Executive Report: James Seeley, Student Association President Asked Senate review amendments to legislation longer. It would serve student body better if before making a change you talked to the submitter. He discussed the vetoed bill, SLE. 38.17 By Law Amendment Executive Transition Protocol. Stated Part 'C' was redundant, part 'D,' not possible. Senate needs to work harder on financial bills. Explained recent Executive Orders and reasoning behind them. Organizations going on trips, when they're gone it is difficult to get a hold of them. If there's a problem University Police calls SA. Need a contact in case of an emergency. Hopes to removed any conceptions that Student Association can embezzle money, by requiring two signatures on purchase order requests of large amounts. It will not slow down the PO process. There are many laws we don't use and we want to put everything together. There has been a lack of debate on campus and because of that we are going to work to bring some discussion panels to campus. There are some big political issues coming up in the future. Seeley, already sent a letter to Pataki regarding tuition increase. We could use more ideas for miss-a-meal. Please talk the organizations your represent about budget, if they don't know what to do have them come to Charla or myself. Has been working with Auxiliary Services on potential meal plan changes. Thinks it would be better for students to go from having 3 guests meals, to instead, five or six anytime meals that can be used on a guest or yourself. Also, want to add another business to plus plan. Dellwo: Aren't you in support of a tuition increase? Seeley: 41% is too much. A little increase is acceptable. We're going to fight it, but can't unconditionally exile the increase. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President Will now be the peer advisor for Political Science, so his office hours will be changed. If you need anything from him contact him there. Brought back the training posters, asked Senate If there was anything they would like to add on. Supports Seeley's veto. Talked about Senate liaison, please start contacting them. If your not you will be censored. We don't want to look like fools. We will be moving away from printed minutes. They will be posted on the web and distributed via email. This will help to cut down on the cost of copies. There are more guests coming up soon; President Stanley and Kathy Santos for example. Charla Blum, Director of Finance Ready for the budget, will get Senate prepared next meeting. Am willing to go right through budget with all the organizations. If you are submitting a finical bill, email it to me first, probably can nip some problems from it before it gets to Senate. 6501 ... $2,500 6502 ... $7,127

Committee Reports: Policy: Kane: Still deciding on a meeting time. Will be reviewing things for the constitution. Procedure: Randolph: This meeting in group study room, Thursday at 8:OO.

Shawn McConnell, NYPIRG: The budget has been released, looks bad. There was a $1200 tuition increase as well as a major cut to tap. Next Thursday will be a NYPIRG general education meeting. We will be facing a tragedy if this budget goes through. Everyone needs to work together, all organizations. Guest of Senate: Cathy Santos, Judicial Code Administrator & Assistant Dean of Students She sees role as ability to help students. Have many ties in the community. Suggests putting more time and patients into things. Make it as difficult as possible for people to disagree with you when you feel strongly about something.

Shawn McConnell, NYPIRG: Brought a student with him to give a personal story of what might happen if tuition goes up.

Executive Report: James Seeley, Student Association President: Read numbers, same as last week. Stated SLE. 38.28 needed some wording changed to make it work. Asked if Senate would put Charla's name first on RES. 38.07. Told Senate he was tired of being their babysitter. Asked them to do it right and do it yourselves. Dellwo: Asked President Seeley if he and the Senate were supposed to work together. Asked if he was against the Senate. Seeley: Said he as not against the Senate, but shouldn't have to do everything.

Robinson: Second Seeley: Asked Senate to refer for one week. Randolph: Opposed to this bill. Students voted they wanted NYPIRG. Kane: Motion to amend in the following ways, add on line 16 after "account 6204" insert "NYPIRG (Contractual Agreement)." Pufky: Motion to vote. 18-0-2 PASSED Olenick: Motion to refer. Robinson: The committee doesn't need to be doing the work of the submitters. Randolph: Agrees. Shouldn't have to rewrite the bill. Olenick: People have already made up there minds. Don't kill it now; just send it back to the committee. Exercise every possible way to get something out of it. Pufky: If you change whole purpose of bill it needs to be resubmitted. 3-14-3 Motion to Re-refer FAILED Frances Clark, NYPIRG: The work we do matters state wide and on this campus. In order to keep this chapter running, we had to divert money from other campuses. Frankly, we stayed here because we believed the students wanted NYPIRG here on the campus. President Seeley came to us with reasonable compromises, we agreed to most of them. Robinson: This is not committee's job. Bakr: It's a big assumption that NYPIRG will get the money. Dellwo: Every time we see a organization, they come to see us, explain how they spend their money, we see pictures, we ask questions. This doesn't even say what the money is going to do. Manning: Reminds everyone to vote how their constituents tell them too. Dr. Scharfenberger: Be careful your rational doesn't include notions of reimbursing. Cannon: We have a responsibility to spend this money, but this is a blank check. Washington: yield to NYPIRG: Our attorney assured us we could be reimbursed the money, we certainly could show proof of what we did on this campus. Barbur: We were reminded to vote with constituents if this is what college students want, this is what they want. Randolph: It's a possibility NYPIRG can't get this money, but if we pass this they definitely can not get this money. Pufky: This is a big deal, cannot be rushed. Why should we give them the money and expect them to spend it right? They couldn't deal with it before, how can they now? Manning: Calls for a five minutes recess. Olenick: Call to question. 18-0-2 question called. 1-18-1 FAILS

Senator Issues Forum: Cannon: Wondered why there was so much slush on the campus. How do you get ride of it? Barbur: Asked Off Campus Senators to email him their availability. Committee Reports: Policy: Kane: Went over six pieces of legislation. SLE.38.34 really liked definition but few small amendments. Procedure: Randolph: Reviewed seven bills. SLE.38.25-passed. Voted down SLE. 38.30. SLE.38.31 and SLE.38.32 were passed. SLE.38.33 and SLE.38.34 passed with amendments. Next meeting Thursday at 8:00 in SA conference room. Finance: Cannon: Looked over SLE.38.20 and the suggestions from Dr. Scharfenberger. Recommended it be referred for one week. Involvement: Beck: Have had low attendance; need to know if 6:00 isn't a good time. Need some Senators to sign up for slots in the involvements. Elections: Puflry: Met Thursday, elected a new vice chair, Senator Robinson. Voted on New petition format and sign to get people to come. General Orders: SLE.38.25 Student Association Legislation Process Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways, Strike lines 34 through 36 and replace with "If a student organization needs to have legislation reviewed by a certain date, it shall be placed under special orders with a date specified that they need the action taken by." Second: Randolph Dr. Sharfenburger: Asked purpose of amendment. Randolph: Trying to paraphrase something in the bill. Lawson relinquished chair to Senator Randolph 6:48 Lawson: Follow outline of bill, point five, put it before that. Make it a number five and number six a number five. Cannon: Isn't special orders something we are supposed to do that night. If it sits in Senate to long, the event could go by. McAllister: Your paraphrasing. Lawson: Cannon is right. Kane: Reason it would be in Special orders is because there is no time for it in committees. Cannon: Can still put it in Special Orders without this amendment. 0-14-3 FAILED Randolph: Motino to amend, strike lines 9-12. Second: Robinson Randolph: Its redundancy that's not necessary. Kane: Agree, its an extra step we don't need in there. Sutherland: I concur with Randolph and Kane. Lawson relinquished chair to Senator Kane at 7:00. Lawson: If you get rid of part three then get rid of the entire legislation. Part three is the most important part. The purpose is to ensure that we are not bogged down with bad legislation Cannon: Should go to committee chair. If something is unconstitutional give it back to make appropriate amendment. Don't see harm. Randolph: Shouldn't be doing any process of review. Could give us more of a bias. How many times have we changed something unconstitutional on the floor?

PAGE 10

Sutherland: I conquer with Brian. Maybe not strike, but reword. Puflry: Just a recommendation, nothing major. Its been good going to committees. Lawson: Section three is most important of the bill. Not matter what the bills will still come to Senate. Meetings are shorter because of current policy, this will make the shorter and more effective. Something illegal shouldn't get here, so it doesn't bog us down. If you get rid of 4a and 4b still stuck with something more confusing. Cannon: As a bill submitter would like comments on the things I submit. Randolph: Doesn't think it should be a strict law. Doesn't meet standards. We're making it like we have state subcommittees. This is not something we should be doing. Withdraw amendment. Pufky: Motion to refer to procedure for one week. 17-0-1 PASSED SLE.38.28 Amendment to Financial Policy #3:Prioritiers and Criteria for Funding Cannon: Motion to refer to finance for one week Second: Robinson 16-0-1 SLE.38.30 Rights and Responsibilities Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways change point five to point six and point six to point seven add point four, "have one vote in all non-momentary authorization related matters." Olenick: What does monetary mean. When we authorized funds, non-monetary funds what does it mean. Robinson: Authorization of funds. Robinson: Withdraws amendment. Beck: Motion to amend, change point five to point six and add point five, "Have one vote except for legislation authorizing the disbursement of funds." 13-2-1 PASSED Randolph: Motion to amend add lines fifty after events "in an unbiased manner," 53 after events "in an unbiased manner," strike lines 50 after events and 53-54 after events. 13-0-4 PASSED Sutherland: Doesn't truly believe faculty should be involved in student affairs. 10-4-3 PASSED SLE.38.31 SA Senate Apportionment McAllister: Could be voting faculty member? Lawson: Yes. Robinson: Request to take a vote. 15-1-1 PASSED SLE.38.32 Executive Transition Protocol Seeley: Make sure process is as simple and flexible as possible, Randolph: Support this version, lets pass in this form.

2003-2004 Executive Budget Proposal For SUNY OPERATING BUDGETNormally current revenues Salaries, Utllities, Equipment, Materials etc. Reduces state support SUNY-wide by $178 million Increases income requirement SUNY-wide by $197 million Presumes $1,200 full-time undergraduate resident tuition increase (Graduate, Non-resident, Part-time will also increase) What might the proposed Executive

PAGE 18

Budget mean to SUNY Oswego's operating budget? If passed as proposed-Anticipate stable budget If passed wlh proposed tuition increase reduced-Requires additional state support to maintain stable budget Example for Discussion: As presently configured --if additional state support is not forthcomingfor every $100 the tuition increase is reduced our operating budget is projected to be reduced by $670,000. If new hires were retained at $38,000 year-that means a loss of the equivalent of nearly 18 positions. If 6 of those positions were faculty lines and each person taught 4 classes--we might need to reduce our course offerings by 48 sectlons a year. Assuming an average class size of 25-approximately 1,200 seats might be affected.

PAGE 19

CAPITAL---F~CIII~J~S Renovation-Bonded The Executive Budget recommends a new 2003-08 Capital Plan of state funds totaling $2.5 billion SUNYwide Over $40 million in new state funds for academic facilities have been identified for SUNY Oswego-ln addition, we anticipate $25 million in residential facility improvements funded from non-state sources. EOP---~ducational Opportunity Program Recommends eliminatlon of $8.2 million in Supplemental Student Financial Aid SUNY-wide Oswego's portion of those funds is circa $280,000 and affects 362 students TAP-------Tuition Assistance Program Recommends restructuring TAP to reduce costs and encourage degree completion

PAGE 20

Base Component provides students 2/3 of the calculated award, using existing eligibility and aid provisions-Maximum award level $5,000 Performance Award pays the remaining 1/3 to students upon completion of their degrees. The performance Award would include interest if the student incurred loans. Based on Fall 2002 cohort of Oswego students-the proposed TAP restructuring might affect our students as follows: 4,063 of our 6,646 full-time students received TAP award (61 %) 2,077 of the 4,063 TAP recipients, or 51 % received the minimum TAP award ($500 per year). Using current TAP guidelines these students may not receive a TAP award increase if tuition were to increase. 1,986 of the 4,063 TAP recipients, or 49%, would receive a TAP increase to cover the additional cost of tuition. Using current TAP guidelines, these students would be held harmless. Comparative and Historic Tuition and Fees

But after some research he realized that we are not all as smart as we think and enjoyed the learning which took place. Kane: Would suggest to the Senate that we refer legislation to only one committee, unless the situation truly calls for more than one reviewer.

PAGE 25

Barbur: Appreciated the Vagina Monologues, it was "interesting but fun." Asked about the article about SA in the Oswegonian. ~-ing: Ask senators to assist in food drive which has been going on in Onondaga hall.

Feels the elections committee found the original intent of the section and is keeping with that. Kane: -Has some hesitation in changing the election law so close to the actual elections, but if the committee feels this is more of a rewarding she is content. VOTE: 17-0-2 PASSED General Orders SLE.38.25 Student Association Legislative Process Randolph: Motion to amend in the following manner: Strike lines 10: from 'ensured to followed', line13 from 'through' to 'present' line 14 'Committee Chairs', Delete lines 17-26.

Those comments will also be given to the submitter. At this point in the process the submitter will be given the option of withdrawing the bill.' Line 14 add after 'from the': Committees or Bill submitters. 2nd Robinson Cannon: Have to attach comments only if it is necessary? Olenick: Supports the amendment. Wondered if comments will follow the bill all the way through. Randolph: Believes that this is a nicer way of dealing with legislation than just failing a bill. Instead they can just withdraw it. VOTE: Passes 17-0-1 VOTE on legislation: 17-0-1 Passes. SLE.38.28 Amendment to Financial Policy: Priorities and Criteria for Funding Seeley: If you do not understand the bill than you should fail it. Randolph: Is always concerned with bills like this. We need to make sure its okay. Not the best thing, it is a little sketchy. But if the Senate feels this is necessary than he will support it. Olenick: Was at first against the bill but after some long discussion decided it was a way to cover ourselves if something happens. This gives us something to fall back on, a guideline to cover ourselves. I support this bill, it allows a safety net to guide our decisions. Randolph: Only thing that scares me is "substantially." Could someone on budget council interpret something differently? VOTE: 10-3-6 Passed RES.38.09 Shattering the Myths of Ability. Hershkowitz: Motion to Amend.

Call to Order: 6:05 11. Roll Call: Beck, Kane, Obstein, Sutherland, Barbur, Cooper, Dellwo, Randolph, Farrell, McAllister, Robinson, Bakr, Manning, Owens, McClain, Pufky, Hershkowitz. 111. Approval of the Minutes: Kane 2& Robinson IV. Approval of the Agenda: Pufky Objection: Add RES.38.13 to New Legislation. 2"d Robinson V. Public Comment: Shawn McConnell, NYPIRG: The No Tuition Hike finished today in Albany, with over 3,000 people there. Oswego was one of the best represented schools, with the largest crowd and banner. Thanked Senator Pufky, Cooper, Dellwo Hershkowitz and McAllister and everyone else who helped and/or took part. VI. Guests of the Senate Chris Meyer, NYPIRG Executive Director and Francis Clark, NYPIRG Campus Supervisor. Mr. Meyer: Handed out document explaining the mission of NYPIRG and went into some detail. The mission of NYPIRG is to help train the next generation of leaders by trying to effect change. In the past they have worked on government reform, higher education, social justice and public health and many others. Students will learn how to organize a meeting, and speak publicly. This year NYPIRG has spent most of its time on higher education. There were schools at the rally today in Albany that are not associated with NYPIRG, and the NYS Assembly Higher Education Chair said during his address to the crowd, "Lets hear it for NYPIRG." The important thing to remember is that Oswego didn't do this alone, nor did any other NYPIRG group; they did it as a group of 3,000 strong. That's what NYPIRG brings to bare, they bring people together. On the matter of pooling resources and budgeting, NYPIRG tries to get the most they can with every dollar. They pool resources and try to amplify the value of the dollar. They try to follow the "its cheaper by the dozen" mentality. Every chapter gets a full time project coordinator, and has access to staff people. As for accountability, NYPIRG believes that the referendum that is held is the most democratic way to find out if students want them on NYPIRG. They are accountable in ways such as their tax forms that are on file, as well as their audit. With this they believe they

PAGE 29

are upholding the will of the Senate and the Student body. Believes NYPIRG can unite people, if you don't support them then work with them and it is possible that you can change their position or views or general direction of the organization. Mr. Meyer pledges to work with you, and he very much appreciates the chance to talk to you. Robinson: Thanks Shawn for helping to his efforts to keep the Oswego Students up to date. Asks about the College Republicans trying to remove NYPIRG from certain campus. Meyer: Believes this boils down the idea that "if you don't support NYPIRG why fund them." NYPIRG is a non-partisan group. They work with everyone, anything that the students want NYPIRG will work on. Robinson: Then asks about the budgeting and pooling of resources. Meyer: The budget is pooled together and allocated to the central office where it is spread in according to the budget passed by the Board of Directors. Meyer claims that not a single chapter of NYPIRG was hurt to support Oswego. Randolph: Thanked NYPIRG for remaining on campus. It would have been easy for them to just pull out of campus. Seeley: Asks how we are able to make sure the money from one campus s actually going to that campus. Seeley does not believe that they have not shown us what they have been able to do. Meyer: All campus get many resources and possibilities to do things. Josh Breeze: NYPIRG has helped many students, including his self. NYPIRG gives students more opportunities to work on issues, and the benefits are long run. Believes NYPIRG is overall a worthwhile organization. McAllister: As a republican he believes that NYPIRG is ok. Believes the important and impressive thing about NYPIRG is that it can be easily changed by the members of the organization themselves. Seeley: Asked for Copies of the Budget. If anyone can prove wrong what he believes then he asks them to. Salvadore: If some campus' are getting more funding than others. Why don't they sign contracts for account for this? Meyer: Does not agree with the presence. Sometimes they spend more on one campus, but the important thing is that a win on one campus is a win for all. VII. Executive Reports James Seeley, Student Association President: Did not justify funding NYPIRG, and feels it is highly hypocritical to give them money. Expresses some concerns with the line of succession legislation. There could be too many personality problems. Financial Policy Amendmenta small amendment can fix the problems with that. Student Activity Fee IncreaseDoes not support for obvious reasons. Congrats to Oswego State Hockey Team.

Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Power point is a little messed up. President Stanley is scheduled for the next meeting. Next week Senator of the Month will be awarded. RES.38.13. This resolution will help to protect all of us from the dangers of the modem current political atmosphere. 8 Senate supports the Literacy organization brought to them last week. Charla Blum, Student Association Director of Finance. Numbers are the same as last week. April 25-27 is the Student Assembly conference. If you want to go please email Charla with a reason why, and a decision will be made. It is expensive so SA cannot pay for everyone. Jen Clark, Student Association Director of Public Relations. = Eboard has some serious concerns regarding the election. We need to get people out to the polls. This is her last meeting. Thanks to the media, Rebecca Madden, Jay Holder. Senator Cooper asked for a brief account of attempts made by President Seeley to increase involvement. -Director Clark: Biggest pressure has been put on the Student Assembly, which has had a steady turnout. VIII. Senators Issues Forum Barbur: Apologizes for not making committee. Disappointed that not many people, specifically Off Campus Senators, turned out for the parking committee meeting. Is disappointed with the lack of work between the executive and legislative branch. Hopes that the relationship between the two branches is a lot better next year. IX. Committee Reports Policy: Kanenext meeting Monday at 3:00 Procedure: RandolphVoted to pass SLE.38.41. Fiance: CannonVoted to pass SLE.38.42, and have also spent a great deal of time looking at the budget. Involvement: BeckAsks Senators to pass out flyers, and announcing elections in their classes.

The elections are going rather smooth, and encourage everyone to get people out to vote. CCRT: Bakrlooking to have a more informal event, to try and encourage more interaction. X. General Orders SLE.38.41 Amendment #1: Line of Succession: Addition of time frame for Line of Succession. Randolph: there is a limit, want a way to handle things. Very unclear as to what line of succession really is, or for how long. Sutherland: concurs with Senator Randolph Robinson: to many issues to tell if things should be permanent or temporary.

r, 127 Lawson: You might want to get rid of the last whereas; it's kind of 128 repetitive with the purpose of the legislation. We need to think of what 1 29 happened last year and what would have happened if we had this 1 30 legislation enacted then. This is a time when emotions are at their highest 131 and there is an opportunity for the Senate to make a decision which would 1 32 steal even more votes from the Students who voted. Is this the "democratic 1 33 practice" that this Senate wishes to uphold. This is a huge loophole, which 134 could lead to potential problems 135 Pufky: Nothing says in the current order of succession if the placement is 136 temporary or permanent. Motion to refer to procedure for one week. 1 37 OwensAgrees that this might need to be looked at longer. 138 17-0-0 passes. 1 39 SLE.38.42 Funding for Geology Club T-shirt and Transportation 140 Kaneonly asking for a small amount. They have worked very hard to 141 raise some funding. 142 Paul from GeologyClub has really grown, have sold supplies, 143 baked goods and other forms to make up some money. We are 144 going to pay for hotels, and are just asking for some help with the 145 t-shirts and vans. 146 Kaneworked really hard, and they are not asking very much. 147 Pufkysupports this bill. 148 McAllisterWhy twenty shirts if there are not twenty members. 1 49 PaulWe thought we would get more for faculty as well as parents.

Motion to approve agenda made by Robinson, seconded by Beck. Public Comment Shaun McConnell, NYPIRG: Distributed a packet with news articles showing the Senate what NYPIRG has accomplished this year. NYPIRG is bringing good press to the campus. Mentions NYPIRG conference to Senators, which will be the last weekend of spring break. Mike Gerwitzman, President of JSU. Explains some of the past events JSU has held, paying special attention to the dinners they have held at Cooper dining hall. Next month, JSU will be sponsoring Jewish Awareness Week, and hope to have Devorah Halberstam, on campus to speak. Ms Halberstam is a national speaker, speaking on terrorism related subjects. She has been appointed to taskforces and committees by Governor Pataki and President Bush. Opens the floor for any questions. Robinson: Was your constitution approved? Gerwitzman: Yes it was approved, Vice President Lawson has received notification of the approval. Angel: Explains how NYPIRG has affected her life, and hopes that we continue to support them. Josh Turner: Thanks the Senate for their time, and asks the Senate to remember the organizations that we fund on campus, and the principles of democracy which we claim to uphold. NYPIRG means a lot to him, and has helped him realize a great deal of the democratic process on a state wide and national level. NYPIRG has affected his life in a positive manner and hopes it continues to have the opportunity to reach others. Demetrius Barnwell: Attended the meeting to address the numbers of emails he has received which he feels have a strong political bias. Reminds the Senate that sometimes you have to do the right thing for your student body and asks them toto support NYPIRG. If students want them on campus, than the Senate should ensure that they are. Dr. Forbes: NYPIRG brings global issues to campus, and would be missed if they were not here. She has been continually impressed with their work. Salvadore: The NYPIRG issue is about accountability. All we have ever asked for is a line by line account of the funds. How would the Senate feel if they did not get a copy of the budget to keep after they passed it? Asks them to fail this bill. Guests of the Senate President Deborah F. Stanley, SUNY Oswego: Feels she is continually impressed with the Senate. She hopes to explain what has been going on from her last visit. Explains to the Senate the State's financial position and its impact on SUNY Oswego. The attached power point presentation explains this in further detail. President Stanley does not want funding to

PAGE 3

go away from Oswego, and is fighting to ensure that we remain whole. She does not want the burden shifted to the students, and feels that the entire state and nation benefit from our education. Oswego will continue its attempts to provide through presidential scholarships, and hope to continue to push Oswego to higher levels. Oswego will be receiving additional funding from the state for capital improvements. This money is bonded, or barrowed, and can not be used for tuition related purposes. Robinson: Expresses frustration at the inconvenient times required classes are offered. Stanley: Understands the situation, and it is a reoccurring theme. This is being looked into by the University. McAllister: Is enrollment expected to drop? Stanley: Does not feel that enrollment will decline at a noticeable level. Feels that the answer to the question relays a great deal on financial aid and TAP. Barbur: What is being done regarding the current parking problem on campus? Stanley: It is always changing, and there will be a new lot near Seneca. Larry Provost: Discussed the current military situations in Afghanistan and Iraq with the Senate. Discusses respect for America, and believes that we are doing the right thing. Believes we are pushing and fighting for fundamental human dignities. Asks us to look beyond the political differences, and look at the people the motives and the constant push for peace and harmony. America is not about a party or a race or a group it is about freedom. Presents at the conclusion of his discussion presents a photograph for the Women's Center and a flag to the Senate which was made in and flown over the US base in Afghanistan. VII. Executive Remrts James Seeley, Student Association President: Discussed what he feels he has done during his term in office. Worked hard to being the campus and the city together. We need to realize that we need the city as much as they need us. Attended as many organizations functions as possible, and this has had a positive effect on the relationship between SA and our organizations. Increased efficiency, with handbooks and manuals for employees and positions. We now have a mission statement, which was something Cathy Santos said would be good for us to happen. We had one before she mentioned it to us. SA Assembly. We invest a lot in our organizations, and this has been a good source of information and a wonderful line of communication. Restructured the E-board, and we remained in tack and successful all year. Feels the Criteria Bill and Policy Recognition Bill will be powerful in the future and is a great step at our stability. Contracts for next year are in progress. New Election Law, it is not perfect but we need to try and attempt to work through it. Glad we have transition protocol straightened out. Off Campus Commuter forum. The sky is the limit if we can continue to advertise and get commuter students to go. We will not be charging for bus passes anymore, providing even more services to the students. The Campus Center is nearing finalization and we need to continue to ensure that it fits what we need. Feels great attempts have been made to remain active on the most powerful and active committees. Believes the Senate Liaison system is failing. Expresses some concerns in next years parking situation. It will not be as bad as this year's transition but it will be a noticeable change.

PAGE 4

Worked to get additional Plus Plan options, looking to try and get the Subshop or Subway involved. Senate needs to represent organizations equally and we need to be smarter and more efficient. Wish to recognize all organizations, not just the ones we fund. This includes Greeks. In regards to NYPIRG, he was looking for a fair contract. He just asked for reports and justification of funding, the audit is immaterial and the general ledger does not differentiate from campus. He wonders why this is all hidden. He Does not have ill will towards NYPIRG, and you can not contest their issues, they are perfect. What he has contested is their justification of where our money is going. Thanks for some fun, and really enjoyed the position. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President Announces that he is not suing anyone. Discusses with the Senate a memo he received from President Stanley which is a response to RES.38.13.

Reminds the Senate of the upcoming rniss-a-meal, and expresses some concern in making this a success. Senator of the month award was given to Justin Barbur. Opposes a fee increase, because there is not justification, and we are showing no long term planning. Will need plan, we are not and its hurting the students here. Boggles his mind that only 11 people can take money out of his pocket with out giving him a more formal and unified attempt to expresses his position. Charla Blum, Student Association Director of Finance 6501: $2500.00 6502: $5423.00 6503: $1092.00 6505: $2305.00 6506: $1600.00 Director Blum believes that the two issues regarding the SA fee increase need to be divided and would allow for proper debate. Thanked the E-board for their support and help this year and was upset that the Senate would not attempt to see their hard work. Daniel Preston, Director of Special Challenged Student Issues: Wanted to express his continued involvement regardless of his position in the next administration.-Thanked the Eboard and the Senate for all their help and participation this past year. Thanked the Senate for letting him give them homework.

Page 2 XV. Becoming an Student Association Organization A. Submitting a Constitution & Becoming Tier 1 Organization 1. A student group can become a Student Association recognized and/or funded organization. To be considered a Student Association organization a group must submit a constitution to the Student Association Supreme Court. The constitution must at least include the name of the group, purpose, membership (must be open to all SA fee paying students), time and place of meetings, election proceedings, officers and their duties, impeachment procedures, amendment procedures, and committee establishments. 2. The constitution is then reviewed by the Student Association Supreme Court. The Student Association Supreme Court is composed of students who are appointed by the Student Association President, and confirmed by the Student Association Senate. Once the constitution is approved the organization is recognized as a Tier 1 organization. The organization will have a mailbox in the Student Association office that should be checked at lease once a week. The mailbox is our main avenue of correspondence between the Student Association and its recognized organizations. Funding for Tier 1 organizations is provided on an event by event basis through the presentation bill, which is presented to the Student Association Senate. The Student Association Senate has the authority to pass, fail, or amend the bill which means there is no guarantee any club or organization will receive any or all of what was requested.

THEREFORE BE IT ENACTED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that the following changes be implemented. After "IV Student Association Constitution" add "and By-Laws" Replace Article XI Section B with: B. The next step Tier 2 1.

Any Tier 1 organization wishing to apply for Tier 2 status may submit a budget request during the Tier 2 budget process in the fall semester. 2. All Tier 2 clubs submit a line-by-line budget request to the Budget Council by the second academic Friday of the fall semester. After the second Friday, Budget Council will convene with the organizations that have submitted a Tier 2 budget request. All requests are reviewed on first come, first serve basis. Budget Council shall inform all the clubs of their line by line budget recommendations by the third Friday in September. 3. Organization appeals are due one week from the date of the notification of recommendations from the Budget Council. Depending on the date Budget Council notifies organizations of their line-by-line budget recommendations, the Finance Department shall submit legislation to the Senate with specific line-by-line allocations for Tier 2 organizations. At the same Student Association Senate meeting all appeals will be heard and decided upon (with quorum present). The Student Association Senate will consider the club allocation at the first Senate meeting immediately following the Senate meeting at which appeals are heard. 4. Clubs in Tier 2 must remain at this level until they have been on campus for two consecutive semesters. The two semesters must include a spring semester and the following fall semester.

Information regarding this process is distributed in the mailboxes early in the fall semester so it is imperative that clubs check the mail as soon as school is back in session. Add Article XN Section F: F. The Student Association Director of Finance will submit a monthly financial summary of each of their accounts beginning with October and ending in May to all Tier 2 and Tier 3 organizations receiving a budget. Replace Article XITI Mandatory Leadership Training Seminar with: XVII.

Failure to attend the Involvement Fair will result in the freezing of accounts until the Director of Finance or President has been consulted as to the reasoning for not attending the Involvement Fair. The Fair will be held at the earliest practical date in the fall semester. Replace Article XXI Section D with: D. Reimbursements ONLY with the prior approval of the Director of Finance or SA President can a reimbursement be issued. If expenditures are authorized, a purchase order must be submitted with receipts to receive a reimbursement. Tax cannot be reimbursed because the Student Association is a tax-exempt organization. Replace Article XXI Section H subsection 1 with: 1. No Student Association Organization can transfer money from their accounts to accounts of another Student Association Organization. In Article XXI Section I subsection 3 following "All Student Association" add the word "performance".

(New York Times Oct. 23,2002). THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that we join the coalition of over 650 student groups and organizations from across New York State in opposing any increase in SUNY and CUNY tuition and in opposing any cuts to the funding of SUNY and CUNY schools.

With the reduction of the number of main campus commuter lots, many students are forced to park at the Romney/Laker parking lots; and Oswego State commuter students are paying the same price as residents, to park away from main campus; and Even though there are several buses constantly running from all parking lots to campus, it does not make parking so far away from campus any better; and Other SUNY campuses (Cortland) realize that students are forced into undesirable parking lots and try to compensate by lowering the price of their parking registration. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that the SUNY Oswego parking committee formally review the current parking plan that was issued this year (2OOZI2OO3). BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the SUNY Oswego parking committee pay special attention to the price of registration for commuter students parking in the Romney/Laker parking lots.

This would allow quicker access to the internet and the option for students to use or not use the RESNET system. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the Student Association Senate of the State University of New York at Oswego that RESNET should be included in the price of room rent and that an additional charge not be administered for the use of RESNET. THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that on the Student Invoice for tuition and other charges, there be a line showing the price of RESNET. The option to waive the cost be available to those students who do not intend to use RESNET in their residence hall room.
