SGA Passes Two New Amendments In Recent Meeting


Spring is finally in the air and with it, some spring cleaning. During SGA’s recent general body
meeting on April 2, the members of SGA spent some time discussing the two amendments
proposed by Jacob Walker and Taylor Snead respectively.

After being elected to a position as Senator of Arts and Sciences, Jacob Walker wanted to create
a system so that the students of Webster could benefit from the services that SGA has to offer.
His idea: Article XI to the SGA constitution, a process for creating resolutions on campus.
Walker’s vision is for students to come to members of SGA with their ideas, and then the SGA
members will create the resolution and present it to the entire student body for voting. If the
resolution passes a 2/3 majority, the resolution will then be considered SGA’s public opinion that
will be shared to various public outlets.

As comptroller, Taylor Snead set out to make it easier for student clubs and organizations to
handle their clubs’ budgets. In order to do so, Snead read through the Budget Committee Bylaws
numerous times to determine what sections, if any, could be amended. Snead concluded that it
would be easier for both future comptrollers and SGA-funded clubs alike if these things were
now included in the Budget Bylaws: budget reports are now due at 5PM in the comptroller’s
mailbox on the due dates, and from now on the Treasurer’s Workshop is mandatory for all
funded clubs. Taylor believes that these new amendments to the bylaws will help clubs become
better organized with the budgets and all of the procedures.

There are still two general body meetings left in 2013 school year on April 16 and April 30,
both at 3PM. If there are any questions or comments involving SGA or the amendments passed,
contact Jacob Walker (, Taylor Snead (,
Marybeth St. Peters (, or any member of the Student Government
Association will be happy to answer any questions or comments.
