Senate Executive Committee – Bylaws I.II § 9 (6):
Redbook Section in Question:
Redbook Constitution or Bylaws?: Bylaws
Redbook Article: I.II
Name: Benvin Lozada
Position/Affiliation: Vice President of University Relations
Chair Email: email@example.com
Question (Be as specific as possible):
The ASUU Bylaws, Policies and Procedures Article I.II, Section 9, Subsection 6: Committee Powers and Duties, Sub-Sub-Sections 1, 3, and 4, read the powers of the Senate Executive Committee as follows: “6.1. To set the agendas for all Senate meetings. 6.3. To review all legislation submitted to the Senate to assure its compliance with the Constitution, Bylaws, University Policies, Procedures, and state and federal laws. 6.4. The Executive Committee may: 6.4.1. Not fail proposed legislation unless acting as the Summer Senate, in accordance with these Bylaws.” Is it a violation of Redbook for the Senate Executive Committee to effectively fail legislation through refusing to place the legislation on the agenda? In particular relevance to this situation, this decision was made in the last Executive Committee meeting of the year, meaning that there was no further meeting to consider the legislation in and the legislation would never be seen as a result of the Executive Committee’s decision.
