††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. The state is asking schools to be prepared for a significant loss in budgets

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. This is common across the country, recession

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. Governor Ventura must balance the budget

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. The state will most likely dip into budget reserves

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - Only $1 billion in total, so won't solve problem completely

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Reduce spending across the board is one option

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† c. Raise taxes is another option

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - "Sin" taxes: cigarettes, alcohol, etc

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. It will most likely be a combination of all of the above

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† c. Took a poll of 14 students, most disapproved

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. (Sprafka) The CIS will be ended or revoted later, so none of this should be an issue.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. (Swanson) It's unconstitutional to favor or deny a group privileges.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. CIS doesn't do this

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - CIS fixes a problem on campus, not create one.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Poll taken is inaccurate, and therefore not reliable

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 4. (Albertson) CIS is a good idea, and shouldn't be removed

5. (Kelly) Happy that someone took the time to investigate the legality of something like the CIS, but questions motives for doing so

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Meetings are open for all to attend

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Isn't just about Natives, but for all cultures on campus

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 6. (Heisserer) This is a movement for removal of the CIS; not just extending it's timeline.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. This same thing will be discussed later, when the set time limit expires.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - It is a waste of time to do so now

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 7. (Becker) CIS should be under Cultural Diversity, not its own Ad Hoc committee

8. (Swanson) CD covers a broad aspect; many problems in one area warrant extensions for something like CIS

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 9. (Anderson) CIS may be in the wrong spot

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Perhaps as a sub-committee of Cultural Diversity

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. It is about including, not excluding

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 10. (Kelly) Agreed with President Anderson

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. The last two meetings were very productive

b. Would approve of the CIS being moved to a subcommittee of Cultural Diversity

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† c. Curious about the presenter's objective for wanting to remove the CIS

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - Ambiguous and unclear

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 11. (Sprafka) Call to Question, Sen. Tengwall seconded

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Call to Question - approved.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 12. Voting on removal of CIS

*Two minute recess to count ballots

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Did not pass

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - 8 yes, 13 no, 1 abstention

XI. New Business

††††††††††††††† A. Appointment - not reviewed correctly; will take care of next week

††††††††††††††† B. Reviewing of BSU Club and Organization Constitutions

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. (Wuollet) Too much coming in

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Should it be turned over to a permanent full time position/employee of BSU?

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. (Bess) Constitutions dropped off have many errors

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Corrections not followed through on

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. High turn over rate in Senate

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - Full-time employee would be good for continuity

3. (Becker) Moved to make the Associate Director of the Union responsible for maintaining club constitutions

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Seconded by Sen. Tengwall

b. Speaker Miller passed the gavel to VP Waletzko in order to add his support the motion, and then had it passed back to him

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† c. (Tengwall & Heisserer) Added support as well

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† d. Motion passed

*Point of personal preference by Chair Wuollet

††††††††††††††† C. Stop sign support

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. (D'Souza) Put up stop signs by Birch Hall/Student Health Services.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Will let students be able to cross safely

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. (Becker) Should move the crosswalk to the other side of the entrance to the parking lot.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Most students cross that side of the street

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. (Sprafka) Move the sign up to in front of Ed Arts

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. The majority of students cross there

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - Is a safety issue, as is just below the crest of a hill

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 4. (Weber) Crosswalks are a form of stop sign, even if there isn't one posted there

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 5. (Melcher) Is this appropriate timing?This is the city's responsibility

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 6. (Waletzko) This will be one to bring up with the City.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 7. (Tengwall) Shouldn't be a stop sign, yellow flashing lights or yield sign would be better

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 8. (Rotar) Stop sign is good

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. It would be most used during the winter

9. (Anderson) The motion is to support investigating the city's willingness to put up a sign, not put one up ourselves

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 10. (Rowlette) Yellow lights don't work

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Have them out by the high school; someone was hit by a car over there

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Mankato State got yellow lights, and split the cost with the city for a stop sign

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 11. (Weber) Asked for clarification what the vote was for

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 12. (Sprafka) Need signs before someone gets killed

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 13. (Becker) Has local law enforcement had already been asked about this issue?

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 14. (Heisserer) Clarified issue

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Not going to actually get a sign, but rather just look into it

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 15. Rep. Bunting called the question, Sen. Tengwall seconded

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Vote for looking into getting a sign of some sort put up passed

††††††††††††††† D. Absence Resolution

1. (Waletzko) Moved that a resolution be drawn up for penalties for not fulfilling senatorial duties

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Resolution seconded by Chair Sprafka

2. The Cabinet feels that committee attendance has the same priority as full meeting attendance

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. (Sprafka) If you don't fulfill your obligations, should you be a senator?

4. (Anderson) These measures are already in the constitution, but this resolution calls the matter to attention.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 5. (Swanson) Some people feel that Senate is a club

a. Isn't - Senate is a paid position, and as such obligates certain responsibilities that must be fulfilled

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 6. Voted on - Passed

††††††††††††††† E. Senate Christmas Party

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. Moved by Sen. Smith, seconded by Chair Heisserer

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. No discussion

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Passed

††††††††††††††† F. First reading of the Swing Club constitution

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. Posted in office

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. All read

G. Chair D'Souza moved that the Council of Indian Student Ad Hoc committee be re-classified as a permanent sub-committee of the Cultural Diversity committee

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 1. Seconded by Chair Sprafka

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 2. (D'Souza) The CIS has made a lot of goals, and moving it can only increase on that

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. (Sprafka) Not comfortable with the CIS being its own entity

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Belongs under Cultural Diversity

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 3. (Becker) The committee shouldn't be permanent, and want to see something tangible

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 4. (Anderson) The committee has done a lot

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Adoption of CIS under CD is up to Chair D'Souza/his committee, ultimately.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 5. (Restad) Does moving change how the CIS will work/operate?

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 6. (Heisserer) Enables more people to take part

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. More people would get involved in both CD and the CIS

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Sensible thing to do

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 7. (Weber) Should make separate subcommittee?

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Absorb completely into CD?

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 8. (Smith) Belongs under Cultural Diversity

9. (Kelly) Those that are part of the CIS think it would be best as a sub-committee of Cultural Diversity

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. More structure under CD than as Ad Hoc

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† b. Specific, effective

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

10. (Weber) Senate all talk and no action

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Plenty of time to move the CIS

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† 11Voting to support moving the CIS under Cultural Diversity

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Passed

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† - All in favor

 

 

XII. Open Forum

††††††††††††††† B. (Heisserer) Doesn't like the new meeting format.

††††††††††††††† C. (Anderson) Legislative Affairs needs more people.

††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††† a. Keep trying new meeting format for a while

††††††††††††††† D. Sen. Tengwall moved to adjourn
