In Session April 21st, 2022
Letourneau University Student Senate
Sponsored by Senator Ko
Relating to the funding of the annual Senate Celebration Dinner Event.
Be it enacted by the LeTourneau University Student Senate
The "Senate Dinner Of Fun and Farewells Bill of Spring 2022" may be referred to as the "SEND OFF Bill of Spring 2022.”
1. A total of seven hundred and fifty dollars ($750) shall be allocated from the Senate General fund to pay for the event.
2. Moneys shall only be used to pay for a senate celebration dinner for all invited attendees as stated in the stipulations of the bill along with any related and justified expenses as determined by the Senate.
3. All funds not used in this manner shall revert back to the Senate General Fund after the date of the dinner.
This bill will become effective immediately upon passage.
Attendees will be any individual who is serving or has served as a senator during the current year. Members of the Executive Cabinet and the Secretary are also invited.
Steve Conn, or Wanda Davis, or both of them shall be attendees at the dinner - not only because they are amazing and have done so much for us and we love them, but also because they have the credit cards that can pay for the dinner.
The date and location of the event shall be determined after the passage of the bill by a majority vote either in open forum or in the senate communication channels.
Explanations and Reasoning
At the end of each Spring semester the VP and PPT hold a celebration dinner to show how much we appreciate our senators and the amazing work that they do for this student body. Previous years set the funding of this bill to be at $500, but the amount has been raised to accommodate for the comparatively large number of senators this year in case of going over the designated funds. Since this should theoretically be a one-time payment for dinner, billing will be resolved fairly quickly.
