The SGA invites students to attend a town hall-style meeting on Feb. 8 to discuss the two bills that have been proposed to restructure the organization. The town hall meeting will be held in Hoosier Room East, from 1 to 2 p.m. The two bills, “49-10 Constitutional Amendment: Elections” and “49-11 Student Ambassador Committee,” have been proposed to restructure the SGA in order to ensure equal representation. “[Bill 49-10] basically takes our Senate and expands it from 24 to 28 seats,” Stephon Moore, journalism freshman, SGA press secretary and co-author of the bill, said. “It gives two seats to every school, two seats to undecided students, leaves six seats at-large, and leaves four seats open for incoming freshman.”
