SGA weekly: February 16, 2015

The SGA governing body read and questioned their first legislation of the spring semester. President Sidney McCormack was absent at the Feb. 9 meeting, so Vice President Nikki Kirk filled in.

Representative Patrick Perez, co-author of Resolution 3114006, presented the legislation, which calls for “the addition of family-style gender neutral restrooms during the planning and programming of additional buildings to the Cameron University campus.” Co-author James Barker-Murphey was not present.

The bill states there are currently no gender-neutral restrooms on campus, and it is infeasible to convert any current restrooms. The legislation also said Cameron University is required to provide accessibility and safety for all individuals since the university accommodates a diverse community of people. The authors plan the resolve of the legislation for spring 2016.

Resolution 3114006 will go into a second reading and questioning at the Feb. 16 SGA meeting.

The governing body approved new members of the Finance Committee: Maddie Geiger, Charles Webber, Victoria Boudiette and Lacey Flaig. New members of the Legislative Committee were also approved by unanimous consent, Kelly High and Brandon Clark.

The CU SGA is currently taking applications for the Oklahoma Student Government Association spring caucus. If students are interested, they can pick up an application in the SGA office on the second floor of the MCC.
