RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE

OF

THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF MONTANA STATE UNIVERSITY

Adopted 24 January 2019

Whereas, Legislative decisions often occur very quickly; and,

Whereas, Issues of importance to students often arise that may not have been foreseen but necessitate a response from students; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Associated Students of Montana State University (ASMSU) will establish a ’24-Hour Response Legislative Committee’ (24 Hour RLC) comprised of the ASMSU President, ASMSU Vice-President, three senators appointed by Senate, and chaired by the ASMSU Political Action Director, a non-voting member; and,

Resolved, That the 24 Hour RLC meets weekly to find legislation that might affect students and recommend action to Senate; and,

Resolved, That the 24 Hour RLC has authority to issue temporary legislative directives on issues of immediate urgency to the ASMSU lobbyist as long as they update Senate on why such action is justified; and,

Resolved,  That 24 Hour RLC directives stand until they can be brought up as new business at the following meeting of the Senate.
