Student athletes are interested in student senate but because of mandatory events this makes it harder for them to run for Senate This is adding that student who are members of KU athletics teams, Graduate, law, nontraditional, Pharmacy students and those students who are members of KU athletics teams Many people who are interested cant run because it conflicts with mandatory events that come with being a KU athletic team Their tutoring is somewhat flexible which is why they only need to go to two committee meetings a semester but must attend all full senate meetings Vote: Passes

2014-058 A bill to amend student senate rules and regulations article VIII, Section 5 to increase unallocated rollover potential i. Addressing the money that just sits in multiple accounts not being used and after all of that it is returned to senate ii. But what we are looking for is once the money has been used for something and if there is money left over the money automatically returns to the senate instead of just sitting for the rest of the year iii. We have control of seeing how much money is left in the account given to the groups that ask for it iv. Groups shouldnt have to ask for the rest of the money after the purchase since the groups had already made the purchase v. This is giving the organizations President power to return any outstanding allocations of an organizations account to the Student Senate unallocated account once all payments have been finalized vi.
