The Student Government Association held their second meeting of the year on Feb. 10 in the C.J. Davidson Conference Cen­ter.

They began by discussing old business matters including the extension of Senate Bill 91.13 from the Rules of the Senate Commit­tee as it is being restructured.

SGA also approved, by unanimous consent, to provide the funding for the use of a Ram Tram to transport ASU students to a movie event hosted by SGA and UCPC at the Icon Cinema on Feb. 11.

The next order of business was to discuss the social duties of the SGA. Senators Maddison Kaiser and Brady Floyd both stood in front of all senators to discuss why they should be allowed to aid Senator Terry Burt, public relations chair, and her committee with the SGA social media accounts and any other tasks that need to be completed.

“Social media is a big thing nowadays,” Floyd said. “Every­one has it, companies have it and they’re needing someone to take over and know what they’re doing.”

Burt’s goals include having programs updated, applications of ASU for the student discount program and being in attendance to every single event that SGA hosts. The senators were confirmed and will go through the required training to follow through with their responsibilities.

Lastly, Senator Kristen Kilpatrick presented the SGA T-shirt design seeking the approval of all senators. After a discussion and being denied by unanimous consent twice, the design was passed.

The SGA will have their next meeting on Feb. 24 in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center.
