A Constitutional Amendment

Addition of Appropriations Funding Policy

Purpose: To clearly define the purpose for unused funds from the fall semester appropriations budget and to increase accountability for SGA spending.

Whereas the current constitution does not clearly state how the money left over from fall appropriations should be used. The money currently rolls over to the spring semester, but with no defined purpose.

Whereas the majority of funds requested from the SGA has historically been requested for the spring semester.

Be it enacted by the MUSC SGA assembled in regular session the following:

That article VI, section 1, of the constitution be altered to read as follows.

Article VI Section I reads:

Budget

(a) 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.

(b) Expenditures which are not included in the budget plan and which exceed 1000 dollars will be presented to the SGA for approval. Expenditures less than 1000 dollars may be approved by the Executive Committee.

Let the section be amended to read:

Budget

(a) 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.

(b) Expenditures which are not included in the budget plan and which exceed 1000 dollars will be presented to the SGA for approval. Expenditures less than 1000 dollars may be approved by the Executive Committee.

(c) Any excess funds budgeted for appropriations in the Fall Semester will be added to the budgeted Spring appropriations and used only for this purpose.
