The Student Government Association is talking money. SGA is debating spot funding for the second week in a row after the previous spot-funding resolution was vetoed by SGA President Matt Ryan.

“Our house is not in order with the previous spot funding resolution,” Ryan said.

The previous spot funding bill was vetoed because Ryan said that the content of the spot-funding resolution was not “discussed enough” by members of SGA.

Student groups who received spot funding last week will not lose that money including Black Student Alliance. The language of the bill and spot funding for club sports were points of debate. The new spot-funding resolution added language addressing what some members considered vague and unclear terms and guidelines in regard to spot funding.

The new resolution includes definitions about conferences, tournaments, internal social events, donations to charities, club sports and the allocation of funds. After debate, which lasted close to an hour, the resolution was tabled until next week. The SGA executive board will not comment on this the new spot funding resolution until the resolution is passed.

Also during the meeting, SGA chartered the Culinary Club, a student organization that is dedicated to educating the University on food and its various nuances. SGA also created an ad-hoc committee to implement a Billiken on Bikes initiative, working to create a bike-share program at the University.
