Purpose: To amend the current constitution to allow the voting body of SGA to approve the MUSC SGA budget during the first session.

Whereas: Currently the voting body must approve the MUSC SGA budget during the SGA retreat.

Be it enacted by the Medical University of South Carolina Student Government Association assembled in regular session the following:

That the Medical University of South Carolina Student Government Association Constitution be altered to read as follows.  The SGA will present the budget twice a year to allow for discussion and alteration of the use of student activity fees in the fall and spring semesters.  The budget also needs to be presented and discussed at the first session and voted upon at the following meeting.  

Article VI, Section 1, Sub-section (a) reads: The SGA will establish a general balanced budget plan twice a year. The proposed budgets will be prepared by the Treasurer in conjunction with the other members of the Executive Committee and presented to the SGA at the annual Fall Retreat, and the first meeting in February. The spring budget will reflect any changes necessary due to actual fall expenditures. The budget may be approved by a simple majority vote at the next meeting provided that a quorum is present.

Let the section be amended to read: The SGA will establish a general balanced budget plan twice a year for fall and spring semesters. The proposed budgets will be prepared by the Treasurer in conjunction with the other members of the Executive Committee and presented to the SGA at the first meeting of each semester. The spring budget will reflect any changes necessary due to actual fall expenditures. The budget may be approved by a simple majority vote at the next meeting provided that a quorum is present.
