According to today’s ODE, there was, uh, a little bit of a mix up with the Senate’s proposed rule changes:
The ASUO Constitution Court, the judicial arm of student government, has rejected rule changes submitted by the Student Senate “due to typographical errors, ambiguities, unintelligible language and inconsistencies with Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) and the ASUO Constitution.”
The changes would have affected wording within the Green Tape Notebook, student government’s rule book, regarding gifts, donations and fund-raising accounts.
The document submitted to the court contained misspellings and referred to rules the court found do not exist.
Whoops! Well, at least the ASUO Senate will take responsi…
The rules were primarily written by ASUO accountant Lynn Giordano, Hamilton said.
“I don’t want to pass blame on anyone, but these rules weren’t written by Senate,” she said.
No, just approved by the Senate, which surely could’ve checked and made corrections to the rules before approving them.
