Reapportionment Amendment to appear on ballot

A reapportionment amendment seeking to allocate senate seats by major will appear on the Spring 2019 ballot.

Amendment 2 has passed through the Senate and the Executive branches. Travis Hills, the SGA President, will sign the amendment but warned that frequently changing the senate may cause conflicts in the future.

With the current system, there is a representative for every major plus one for every class, and ones for on and off campus.

“Under the new system, the senate would grow organically.”
