Resolution 12-1, the re-written green fund legislation saw the floor first.

On Wednesday, Associated Student Body President Taylor McGraw rejected legislation for the Green Fund, which would have initiated student-led environmental sustainability projects in addition to the university’s sustainability initiatives.

To the Editor: 

 

When I first heard the news that the Green Fund legislation had been referred back to Senate after passing on Tuesday night, I was shocked. I was even more shocked considering that neither I, Senator Will Bedwell, nor Taylor Cook (Campus for Clean Energy) received the news from Taylor McGraw. Instead, first news came from The DM, who contacted Taylor Cook to comment on the Green Fund legislation’s rejection.

Tuesday evening the Associated Student Body Senate voted to pass a resolution that would help the university take another step toward improving sustainability.
The resolution comes just over a month after 85 percent of voting students said they would be in favor of taking a tuition hike to help out the Green Fund.
Taylor Cook and Zachary Jourjara, two of the biggest proponents of the Green Fund, appeared with Senator Will Bedwell to promote the resolution, as well as defend it during open debate.
