2. All funds not used in this manner will be reverted back to the Senate General Fund.
This act shall become effective upon passage.

2. The data gathered from this project will be available to the public and will be presented to Student Senate when finished
Explanations and Reasoning
The SP 2021 Student Body Opinion Survey proved to be very helpful to students, senators, and the school’s staff to whom it was presented. This data will seek to build on that previous data while also asking new questions regarding changes in the school’s policy among other topics.
The gift cards will be used as an incentive to help get more respondents to fill out the survey. This is not just financial coercion—it is a tried-and-true survey technique recommended to me by a retired data industry professional.
