by Dennis Onnen
Encountering numerous procedural problems
inherent in an organization just starting, the new
ASUN Senate struggled through their meeting
Wednesday night, in the process electing a temporary
speaker pro tempore and three temporary members
of the Executive Committee.
The senate also passed a new set of rules and
procedures, and tabled a resolution calling for
increased salaries for the new executives.

and the other would have given the Student Veterans
Organization $300 to have five of their members
attend the group's national conference.
Sen. Melinda Fowler was elected temporary
speaker pro tempore. She then conducted the rest of
the meeting. Confusion still reigned, however, and
halfway through the meeting Sam Brower, former
ASUN first vice president, was appointed
parliamentarian in an attempt to restore order.
The new Executive Committee members are A.len
Gangwish, Todd Patterson, and Steve Shaneyfelt. The
committee acts as a liaison between the executives
and the senate. Fowler and the three newly elected
committee members were elected to the senate as Get
Off Your Apathy party members.
A vacancy in the senate caused by tlx; resignation
of Behroo Emarn was filled. Sen. Ron Frank
suggested that Steve Eveans replace Ernam, since
Eveans had lost to him by only one vote in the March
ASUN election. The seante then voted Eveans in.
The senate effectiveness committee repot t was
ptesented by Vince Boucher, committee chairman.
He reported that some of last year's senate members
were frustrated for various reasons. He said he f"lt the
committee's report could take care of some of the

Committees would be set up. The Budget Committee

The Legislative1 Piogiams Committee would
initially hold an ASUN caucus to plot legislative
ptiot it les and would review most legislation to come
before the senate. The committer; also would assist
senators with legislation ihey are piepating. The
Legislative Review Committee would be responsible
for following up on all legislation of the senate.
The fouith commit tee' would be the Appointment',
Committee, which would be responsible for filling all
ASUN appointments. Every senator would serve on
one action committee.
Under the proposal, Senate Assembly meetings
would alternate each week with action committee
meetings. It also would give the Speaker Pro Tempore
a salary and office space, and would make him
responsible for the senate as its official spokesman.
The resolution to give the Student Veterans
Organization S300 was originally passed, but a
recount was asked for and the result was reversed to
add to the confusion.
