WSA constitution changes approved

April 23, 1999

KALAMAZOO--Seven amendments to the constitution of Western Michigan University's student governing body were approved April 23 by the WMU Board of Trustees.

The measures were previously ratified by the Western Student Association. They consist of such items as language changes and clarifications that constitute a "clean-up" of the current constitution. The WSA Constitution calls for approval of all amendments by the WMU Board of Trustees after they are ratified by the WSA.

Among the amendments approved were changes concerning: clarification of Election Control Board rules, Executive Branch eligibility to serve on the Student Budget Allocation Committee, clarification of the composition of the Executive Branch, working rules for the Judicial Council, order of succession for committee chairs, removal of the obligation to appoint MCC representation and changes to all references from "Student Senate" to "Senate."
