USG Updates – Oct. 4 Meeting

Kathryne LeBell, Views Editor

On Tuesday night during the University Student Government meeting, the long-debated issue of transparency in voting procedure was finally addressed. The vote concluded with legislation to publish individual senator votes on the USG website. This move is incredibly important and will bring a new sense of openness and accessibility to connect students and their senators.

Student speakers from various organization spoke in support of the legislation, especially from organizations dedicated to promoting diversity and fighting racism at Tulane. This speaks to the importance of transparency; students cannot trust their senators if they don’t know whether or not they’re voting on what is important.

This legislation will allow more active participation in USG for students who do not formally participate. This was the only piece of legislation voted on.
