DECEMBER 13, 2018 VOL. 1, ISSUE 2 RESOLUTION REVIEWInitiative and Review Constitutional AmendmentOn October 29th, the Student Senate passed Senate Bill 18 (SB18), which was a constitutionalamendment to give more powers to you, the Undergraduate Student Body. This amendment to theconstitution will give you the power as the student body by petition to directly propose legislation to theSenate Body, as well as giving you the power by petition to repeal legislation that we pass. This processis commonly known in Student Governments across the country as \"Initiative & Review.\"After this was passed by Senate, a Special Referendum was held on November 14th where 1,061 students(96.1% of the votes) voted to enact this amendment to our Constitution.The main purpose of this amendment to our Constitution was so that we could give more of anopportunity to the student body, our constituents, more of a voice in Student Government and a way forstudents to directly tell us what they would like to see CUSG working on to better the college experienceof all Clemson students.With Initiative, students will now have the right to directly propose legislation to the Senate Body viathe power by petition, meaning the student will have to collect a certain number of signatures before thelegislation is brought to the Senate floor. For Initiative, students will need 5% of the UndergraduateStudent Body to sign a petition supporting their legislation.With Review, Students will have the power by petition to repeal legislation that the Senate body passes.This requires 10% of the Undergraduate Student Body to sign a petition with the reasoning behind whythey would like a certain piece of legislation repealed. Once a student has gathered the number ofsignatures required, the Senate body will vote on whether or not the student body will vote on the repeal,and the Senate accepts the petition, then the Student body will vote on whether or not the legislation inquestion should be repealed. This was created as a way for the Undergraduate Student Body to have acheck on the Legislative Branch of CUSG.Our new motto is “With You, For Clemson”, and being “With You” means that we should be listening toyour concerns and your thoughts on how we can better the “Clemson Experience” and be an advocatefor you to the administration. With this amendment, you now have the chance to do that, and at thesame time, become more involved with your student government.With You, For ClemsonMatthew Innocenti
