Assembly Adheres to Finance Yearly Guidelines – Bylaws I.I § 13 (16-17):
Redbook Section in Question:
Redbook Constitution or Bylaws?: Bylaws

Question (Be as specific as possible):
Is Assembly required to adhere to the finance board’s yearly guidelines or does clause 16 only require the assembly to adhere to financial guidelines explicitly stated in The
Redbook & Bylaws. Does clause 17 imply that Assembly has the ability to suspend the finance guidelines (either in its entirety or specific clauses)?

Text Section in Question:
“16. All legislation must adhere to the guidelines listed in these Bylaws, especially, but not limited to, all Financial Policies and Procedures.
17. At the start of their term following the annual election cycle, the Director of Finance and the Legislative Treasurers shall determine financial guidelines that provide maximum funding amounts for different categories of purchases. Student organizations are to receive no more than the maximum amount provided in each category unless the relevant legislative body votes to overrule these financial guidelines by a supermajority vote of three-fourths (3/4) of its membership plus one (3/4+1).”
Since the Financial Guidelines (all Financial Policies and Procedures) adhere to Redbook (assuming that there are no contradictions), it is recommended that Assembly follow the Financial Guidelines.
In clause 17, Assembly is able to vote to overrule the financial guidelines by a supermajority vote of three-fourths (3/4) of its membership plus one (3/4+1).”
