Section 4: Rationale
         Every year students from SGE attend this national conference. This year we are fortunate to have six
         graduate students and two undergraduate students presenting their research in numerous poster sessions.
         Due to the differences in when their poster sessions are scheduled they need to take two separate vehicles.
         One group will leave a day earlier than the second. Also, one student is flying due to the conflict in her
         schedule; she is not able to ride with either group. NMSU is noted for having undergraduate research in
         geology and these students are excited at the opportunity to present their work at the national conference.
         This is the largest group of presenters we have had in recent years. Research being presented this year
         ranges from the petrology of sandstones in Mexico to the value of an online paleontology database. SGE
         greatly appreciates the support of the Senate!

CREATING SECTION 2-2-4-G IN THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE
SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To provide for the replacement of Election Board members if they are not able to fulfill their duties.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         If at any time any of the Vice Presidents of the College Councils is unable to or unwilling to discharge
         their duties on the Election Board, the Vice President shall notify the President of their College
         Council. The President shall inform the Chief Elections Officer and appoint a sufficient replacement
         from their College Council consistent with the qualifications enumerated in Section 2-2-4.

Section 3: Rationale
         Currently there is no replacement mechanism for Vice Presidents of College Councils who are unable to or
         unwilling to discharge their duties. In the interest of having full representation on the Election Board we
         should provide a device for each College Council to have a voice despite their Vice President’s absence.

CREATING SECTION 2-2-5-H IN THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE
SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To compel Election Board members to attend Election Board meetings.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         Attend all Election Board meetings set by the Chief Elections Officer. Failure to attend said meetings will
         result in a fine of five percent (5%) of the current Fiscal year’s GAA Council Appropriation to be levied on
         that Election Board member’s College Council. This fine will increase by an additional five percent (5%)
         with each additional meeting missed (e.g. One meeting missed is a fine of 5% of that fiscal year’s GAA
         appropriation, the second meeting missed will result in a total fine of 10% of that fiscal year’s GAA
         appropriation, and a third missed meeting results in a total fine of 15% of that fiscal year’s GAA
         appropriation). This fine will be levied by the Comptroller of ASNMSU who will extract the amount from
         the College Council’s account and deposit it into the ASNMSU Club Endowment Account. If they feel the
         need to do so, Councils may seek a redress of their grievances before the ASNMSU Supreme Court who
         will adjudicate all disputes arising under this act.

Section 3: Rationale
         There is, as of yet, no instrument in place to force Election Board members to attend Election Board
         Meetings. In the interest of meeting quorum at these meetings it is absolutely imperative that members
         attend. Placing this section in the section entitled “Powers and Duties” brings the matter to the immediate
         attention of the Election Board members and lets them know that they are expected to do this. By
         providing such a punishment for missing meetings it will show the Vice Presidents of the College Councils,
         or their designated replacement, that it is important to attend these meetings and their failure to do so will
         result in their College Council, and by extension their clubs, being disciplined. Hopefully, this will
         encourage clubs to insist that their Council’s representative is present at meetings and faithfully discharging
         their duties. Furthermore, similar actions already take place within the College Councils themselves, clubs

        are penalized and not awarded Council funds if they fail to attend Council meetings, and we would be
        entirely within our province to take a similar action.

AMENDING SECTION 8-3-3-H OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE
SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To maintain consistency throughout the ASNMSU law book, our community service requirements, and
         funding procedures.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         Any recognized organization requesting a Senate appropriation shall have completed a community service
         project that directly benefits the southern New Mexico community and the campus of NMSU or two (2)
         community service projects; one in (that benefits) the southern New Mexico community outside the NMSU
         campus and one (that) particularly (benefits) for the NMSU campus community per approved
         appropriation. Each community service project shall occur within 120 days prior to the appropriation
         request. These community service projects shall be approved by the Community Affairs Committee before
         the appropriation request may enter second readings.

        Proposed Change: Delete the underlined portions and insert the bracketed portions. The section as finally
        amended should read:

        H.       Any recognized organization requesting a Senate appropriation shall have completed two (2)
                 community service projects, one that benefits the southern New Mexico community outside the
                 NMSU campus and one that particularly benefits the NMSU campus community, per approved
                 appropriation. Each community service project shall occur within 120 days prior to the
                 appropriation request. These community service projects shall be approved by the Community
                 Affairs Committee before the appropriation request may enter second readings.

Section 3: Rationale
         Our current funding procedures are inconsistent with our rules. Last year the Senate rules (Chapter 9) were
         amended to explicitly disallow clubs from performing one community service event and have it count as
         both on and off campus community service, the Community Service form was also changed to express this
         change in policy. The corresponding funding procedures (Chapter 8) were not changed accordingly. This
         bill seeks to reconcile the difference and provide both clubs and ASNMSU with concrete guidelines
         pertaining to the community service that clubs are required to do to receive funding from ASNMSU.

         The 11 member AITP Team traveled to San Antonio to compete against other AITP teams from across
         Region 3. Contests included Java programming, C++, Visual Basic, COBOL, Network Design, and
         Network Implementation. These competitions serve to demonstrate the vastly superior BCS department at
         NMSU, and showcase some of our more talented students. This bill has been submitted after the team left
         for competition, however the information for the bill was not produced until just before they left. If not for
         the restful Fall Break, their bill would have been submitted to first readings a week before their departure.
         We ask that the Senate consider the effect that Fall Break had on the bill submitting process, and grant this
         successful team the money they deserve.

Section 4: Rationale
         Chile Camp, a freshmen student orientation program run by ASNMSU, is slated to occur earlier this year
         than ever before. This years Chile Camp will take place during the usual second orientation instead of late
         in the summer, and should enjoy the largest attendance thus far. Chile Camp is the only opportunity
         incoming freshmen have to live and learn in true “college” style before the beginning of the semester.
         Chile Camp is the first and best opportunity a student has to meet their peers, learn to live in dorms,
         navigate the campus, and talk to current students about the classes, issues, and activities that make college
         enjoyable. Chile Camp is run by the students, for the students, and includes many entertaining diversions,
         lectures, forums, and other avenues of education about college life.

         two internationally known Flamenco dance professionals in the areas of dance technique, dance history and

Section 3: Appropriation
         Nine hundred and fifty eight dollars and no cents ($958.00) shall be appropriated to the account of the
         NMSU American Choral Director’s Association Club from the ASNMSU Club Account.

Section 4: Rationale
         The NMSU choral department is a major recruiter for New Mexico State University. Our advisor, Dr. Jerry
         Alt has worked hard in her seventeen years to help build our program to what it is today. When she came
         here in 1986, there were eight students majoring in voice. This semester, we have over 75 voice students
         and over 160 members in our combined choirs. Additionally, the NMSU student chapter of American
         Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) has raised New Mexico’s state membership level to their long time
         goal of 100 members. Our organization is committed to making the community aware of the importance of
         choral music in our schools and our society.
         February 12-16, 2003, 14 of our members will be traveling to our organization’s national convention in
         New York City. The purpose of the convention is to allow choral conductors from around the country to
         learn of new techniques in conducting, how to better recruit and deal with students, learn of new
         fundraising ideas, and in general work together to make each individual choir the best that it can be. There
         will be opportunities for our students to see other choirs and conductors perform and attain music for future
         use in their own programs.
         The reason the NMSU student chapter of ACDA has decided to attend the convention is because we have
         all been inspired at some point in our lives by our voice and choral teachers. We, the students, want to learn
         how to better impact our communities through excellent music programs like those found on our campus

         and around our city. In addition to attending the convention, two of our students have won a spot in the
         National Men’s honor choir. They will represent NMSU with around 100 other singers from around the
         country.
         Our organization appreciates any and all support from ASNMSU, and hopes to become a more prominent
         organization on campus.

AMENDING SECTION 6-2-2-A-1 OF THE ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF
THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To encourage more students to volunteer as a member of the Publications Board.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         Student members shall be appointed to any vacant positions by the ASNMSU President within thirty (30)
         days. Such appointments shall be approved by the Senate.

         Proposed Change: Delete the underlined portion. The section as finally amended should read:

Student members shall be appointed to any vacant positions by the ASNMSU President within
thirty (30) days.

Section 3: Rationale
         Our current procedure requires members of the Publications Board to be confirmed before the Senate. The
         ASNMSU President appoints the members of the Publication Board only after the approval of the Director
         of Media Relations. The Publication Board members are volunteers, do not receive a salary, and sacrifice
         their personal time. Therefore, volunteer members should not have to go through confirmations before the
         Senate. By not making the volunteers go through confirmations this encourages more involvement and
         applicants.

CREATING A NEW SECTION 8-3-3-N OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY
THE SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY.

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         Creating subsection 8-3-3-N-5 and re-numbering all subsequent subsections.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         Groups whose sole purpose of travel is for an educational opportunity must include fifty-one (51%)
         matching funds from the organization, reflecting that the individuals doing the traveling are the main
         beneficiaries of the travel. Under this act, funds shall only be appropriated to groups whose sole purpose of
         travel is for an educational opportunity when the balance of the General Surplus Account is at or above
         Two-hundred thousand dollars ($200,000). Once the General Surplus Account Balance has reached this
         minimum, no funds shall be appropriated under this act.


           CHAPTER 13: SENATE BILLS                                                                               209
Proposed Change: Add the above section and renumber all subsequent sections.

Section 3: Rationale
         Given recent events, i.e. ASNMSU taking their own “educational trips” without either matching funds or
         community service, it seems only fair that we allow students to do the same. Furthermore, we have sent
         more than two (2) students to something that in no way can be considered a competition. The fact that we
         have created a loophole for ourselves, the Base Program designation, in no way changes the fact that we are
         operating in direct contravention of our own laws. If our laws do not apply to us, then they mean nothing.
         It has been previously argued that there is no law preventing us from providing clubs with this type of
         funding, however, history has shown that either we will not pass the bill through the Senate or we will pass
         it unanimously, it will get vetoed, and votes will change, thereby depriving the students of their right to
         receive funding from this body. Under this act, clubs will be able to receive funding for these educational
         opportunities while still being required to provide matching funding and perform the requisite community
         service.

         Two thousand eight hundred sixty five dollars and no cents ($2865.00) shall be appropriated to the account
         of NMSU Intercollegiate Floriculture Team from the ASNMSU Club Account.

Section 4: Rationale
         The NMSU Intercollegiate Floriculture Team is the newly-chartered NMSU competitive Floral Judging
         and Design team. Although fresh on the “chartered-scene” they have been very active on campus for some
         time. The students would now like to become more visible in the NMSU community, not only in the
         College of Agriculture and Home Economics. The team usually attends the annual Pi Alpha Zi Floriculture
         Competition. However, this year, they have they gained the opportunity to host the competition. The last
         time NMSU hosted the competition was in 1989 and the team is looking forward to welcoming all the
         visiting collegiate teams. The team has already been working hard in preparations for the competition,
         which is why they are only asking ASNMSU for aid for a limited amount of funding (only for
         transportation and competition supplies). The team has already been relatively successful in securing many
         necessary services and supplies at reduced rates or as donations.

Section 4: Rationale
         The NMSU Dancesport Club is the NMSU competitive ballroom dance team, they perform in the
         community and compete at two western tournaments in the spring. The NMSU team competed at the
         “Dance By the Shores” Competition two years ago and placed second in the team formation, along with
         receiving multiple individual awards for their couples performances. This year the team has been
         practicing hard and has had a many Las Cruces performances. They could be spotted dancing for a crowd
         at the November 11th community memorial, the NM Museum of Agriculture and Heritage, Halloween
         Howl, and Noche de Luminarias, to name just a few. The NMSU Dancesport Club would greatly
         appreciate the support of the ASNMSU Senate, as they are hoping to place just as well or better in their
         team formation. Some of the team’s individuals have prepared to compete in up to seventeen events.

Section 3: Appropriation
         Eight hundred one dollars and no cents ($801.00) shall be appropriated to the account of NMSU Habitat
         for Humanity from the ASNMSU Club Account.

Section 4: Rationale
         NMSU Habitat for Humanity (NMSU HFH) has been very active and visible in the community this year.
         HFH builds houses for community members who live in substandard housing; these families are chosen by
         a committee based on their ability to pay an interest-free mortgage and willingness to partner with HFH in
         the building process. Currently the “NMSU House” is being built through the local Mesilla Valley
         Affiliate of HFH. This house is being entirely built by NMSU students, a collaborative effort that has
         involved MANY students and student groups. Students often meet at 8am on Saturday mornings and build
         into the afternoon. Collegiate Challenge is an alternative spring break in which students get the opportunity
         to build with and in another community with other HFH volunteers from across the country. This year the
         students are excited to be traveling to College Station, Texas, as Texas A&M has a particularly active
         student chapter. Students will be staying in a local parish house, donated by the community for Collegiate
         Challenge use. NMSU HFH has been planning for this trip since the completion of their last spring break
         “challenge,” funds have been saved and fundraisers completed. The NMSU HFH would greatly appreciate
         the support of the ASNMSU senate.

Section 4: Rationale
         The Badminton Club has a membership of thirty(30). They play during eight(8) designated playing times
         `and on six(6) days of the week. There are twenty to thirty(20-30) players, including occasional guests, at
         each designated play time. The Badminton Club participates in many tournaments and Intramural Leagues
         as well as open play time. The equipment requested needs to be replaced periodically due to heavy use.
         Since the Badminton Club is more interested in making this sport more popular, all the NMSU students are
         welcomed to play in the club using the club equipment at any time.

AMENDING SECTION 5-2-1-A OF THE ASNMSU LAW BOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF THE
ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To include a new responsibility of the ASNMSU Chief Justice that coincides with a proposed new section
         requiring opinions on ASNMSU law to be included in the ASNMSU law book.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         5-2-1-A
         Act as the administrator and custodian of records for the Judicial Branch of the ASNMSU. This will
         include managing the finances of the Judiciary and responsibility for maintaining and updating the court’s
         records, files, decisions, and documents, as well as provide copies of decisions on ASNMSU law to the law
         book committee for inclusion as stipulated in 5-9-A-1.

Section 3: Rationale
         This bill will ensure consistency between a new section (5-9-A-1) which is presented in another bill, and
         the job descriptions of the Chief Justice. These two bills will ensure that court decisions on ASNMSU law
         are easily accessible and included in the ASNMSU law book. It shall be the duty of the current Supreme
         Court Chief Justice to research and submit copies of past ASNMSU Supreme Court decisions on ASNMSU
         law to the Law book Committee for inclusion in the 2003/2004 law book.

CREATING SECTION 5-9-A-1 OF THE ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF THE
ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of act
         To create a section outlining a procedure of documentation concerning judicial decisions on ASNMSU
         laws.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         5-9-A-1 Judgments issued by the Supreme Court concerning ASNMSU law shall be noted in parentheses
         next to that law, to include the name of the case, the year and a brief description of the decision of the court
         (for example valid or void). It shall be the responsibility of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to
         provide copies of such opinions as well as any previously overlooked opinions to the law book committee
         by the time it convenes.

Section 3: Rationale
         Currently there is no procedure on how to recognize Supreme Court decisions in the ASNMSU law book.
         Considering that state and federal constitutions do insert footnotes or italicized sections to reference court
         decisions, amendments and other relevant information, this is an appropriate way to address this issue in an
         orderly fashion. In the specific situation of ASNMSU the potential for the short lived memory of these
         decisions and a lack of professional attorneys ensuring that these memories continue to exist and this
         section of the law book will ensure that this problem does not happen. Also, this is the most cost effective
         alternative to establishing a more institutionalized mechanism for disseminating the law as interpreted by
         the judicial branch (e.g. lawyers, law libraries, internet access, etc.).
         This legislation shall encompass all previous & current ASNMSU Supreme Court decisions.

Section 4: Rationale
         As requested by the finance committee this bill has been broken down into two. This bill is for the out of
         country expenses of the student traveler.
         This bill is being submitted late because of a misunderstanding on the part of the student that requests for
         financial assistance should come after the trip in the form of reimbursements, and on the part of me for only
         making available my e-mail address. His first contact to me was on January 21, 2003 which was four days
         after he returned from his conference. However, a bill could not have been written to meet the deadline for
         first readings for the January 23rd meeting. This student’s thesis is to model the water and dust cycles on
         Mars over tens of years to determine the effect that each has on one another. This research has not been
         attempted by scientists in the past and is an attempt to determine why these two cycles vary from year to
         year. A workshop was held in Granada, Spain from January 13, 2003 through January 15, 2003 in order for
         all researchers in the field of Martian Atmospheres to gather and discuss their most recent research interests
         and to stimulate new ideas and collaborations. His research involves substantial modification of a Global
         Climate Model inherited from NASA Ames (San Jose, CA). He attended the workshop to obtain criticism
         and collaborators for his thesis work, which he was successful in doing. Seeing as how this conference
         greatly benefits this students studies, and his misunderstanding on when to start this process, this student
         deserves a reimbursement.

         funding approved for the conference and would appreciate the support.

The ASNMSU Roadrunner Program will be appropriated an amount not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1000.00)
during the general appropriation under the account of the ASNMSU President.

Section 3: Rationale
         The current 7-8, ASNMSU Student Involvement Act lacks structure and a team basis for the ASNMSU
         volunteer program. The revised change above provides specific responsibilities and the basis for a
         cohesive, active and selective group. These “ASNMSU Roadrunners” will give a greater presence on
         campus for the student government as well as allow new students to become active immediately and gain
         the experience to continue in the student government. ASNMSU Roadrunners will provide not only a
         taskforce for current government positions, but will also be able to pursue their own projects on campus.

Section 4: Rationale
         AdFed is a very active and educational opportunity for students who want to increase advertising skills.
         The NMSU AdFed club has been preparing for this for quite a while and has been taking a class this whole
         semester in order to hone their skills. They will be traveling with two vans because they have so much
         equipment that one van will simply not hold them. If they win the competition, their campaign will
         become one of the campaigns used by Ford Motors. With the preparation and work AdFed has put into this
         competition, they will definitely do very well in this competition.

REMOVING SECTION 3-11-4-B-2 OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE
SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To remove this section.



230                                                                      CHAPTER 13: SENATE BILLS
Section 2: Main Provisions
         The chairperson of the Homecoming committee shall ensure that each candidate for Homecoming King is
         of the male sex, and/or each candidate for Homecoming Queen is of the female sex.

Proposed Change: Remove the underlined section.

Section 3: Rationale
         As the legislative branch, the most important issue concerning this law is that as an organization modeled
         after the federal government, we should respect the interpretation of law given by the ASNMSU Supreme
         Court. The legislative branch of ASNMSU has the "authority to pass legislation," and the judicial branch
         has the power to "interpret" the law. As a sign of support for that division of power we should pass this
         legislation.

         However, we should also recognize why this law is considered by so many as oppressive. This law
         predefines roles to people based on their gender. While we as an organization have the power to do this,
         as an organization modeled after the federal government, and as a governing body (in that we pass laws and
         charge taxes) we should not have laws whose consequences are pre-assigning roles for people based
         on their gender. The traditional roles of King and Queen are traditionally defined by gender. In our
         contemporary society we have been fighting to get over these predefined roles based on people’s gender.
         Other gender-specific reasoning has been used to justify statements like 'women belong in the kitchen,'
         'women have to cover their faces in public,' or 'men are the head of the household.' These roles, as well as
         the roles of King and Queen should not be fixed roles, but should remain open to be questioned and
         challenged.

         The practical consequences of such predefined gender roles allow us to continue to justify oppression
         based on a person’s gender. For the sake of greater liberty and freedom, now and in the future, we should
         allow these traditional roles to be questioned and continuously redefined by the individual. Individuals
         should be given control over defining their identity, and if someone wants to break a predefined tradition
         because it defines her identity for her, she should be allowed, and maybe even encouraged to do so. As a
         governing body we should not enforce any kind of predefined gender roles such as those enforced under the
         law in question.

AMENDING SECTION 4-4: OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE
OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To ensure the possibility of a retreat that may be used for “training and guidance” as the “PURPOSE OF
         ACT” states in the 4-4 ASNMSU FALL AND SPRING RETREATS ACT

Section 2: Main Provisions
         Section 4-4-2 currently reads:
FREQUENCY
There shall be at least one retreat each fall semester.

Proposed change:
4-4-2 FREQUENCY
There shall be a retreat within six weeks of the first day of the fall semester. If a retreat is planned for the spring
semester, it will occur within six weeks of the first day of the spring semester.

Section 3: Rationale
         Currently the retreat can occur any time during the fall semester, which does not allow for initial training
         and workshops of new senators, executives, and judicial branch members who are beginning their term in
         the semester. In the current system, those who attend retreat when the semester is ending are graduating, or
         are ending their terms, and thus will not actually be working with the people they attend the retreat with.

         win the National Agri-Marketing Association Marketing Plan Team Competition. They have proven to be
         a powerful force in this competition in the past, and any funding from ASNMSU would be greatly
         appreciated.

MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO THE ACCOUNT OF KRUX. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF
THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1
         It is in the best interest of the Associated Students of New Mexico State University to financially support
         its Base Program 91.5 KRUX FM (frequency modulation) for the non-commercial station’s 12th annual
         music festival. For the first time in three years KRUX is bringing KRUXFest back to the campus of
         NMSU. This, unfortunately brings about new start-up expenses, but provides station and ASNMSU
         awareness.
         Because alcohol and staging were provided by Hurricane Alley, when the event was off-campus, KRUX
         must work with Special Events and its recommended Marriot Sedexho Catering for beverage service.
         Though ASNMSU will not fund the supply of alcohol, there are other expenses that KRUX cannot pick up
         at this point in their semester, as KRUX is a non-commercial station and its opportunity for profit is
         limited.

         Eight thousand, eight hundred and seventy-five dollars and no cents ($8,875.00) shall be appropriated to

Section 4: Rationale
         As KRUX falls under the General Appropriation Act and it is a Base Program. With the 12th Annual
         KRUXFest scheduled to be an on-campus event for the first time in three years and with alcohol proposed
         for the event, the former distributor of alcohol and staging provider for KRUXFest cannot contribute.
         Helping make KRUXFest a more fun, student event, this appropriation will also help boost awareness for
         ASNMSU and its media partner and Base Program, 91.5 KRUX FM. Currently, KRUX has generated
         $5,700 this academic year -- $3,850 this semester alone. KRUXFest is the Base Program’s biggest
         opportunity to meet their budget requirement and its biggest opportunity to create awareness. ASNMSU
         should not stand in the way of the media partner. It should support this activity.

Section 4: Rational
         The NMSU chapter of ASME has been around for a long time. They have been very active in the
         engineering college and on campus for some time now. These students would now like to become more
         visible to the university and to their region in ASME. This chapter usually attends the annual ASME
         Regional Conference, but this year they received the opportunity to host this annual conference. This is a
         first for NMSU. This chapter has put countless hours in planning and preparation for this conference and
         they are confident that this conference will be well attended by all the universities in our region. On a side
         note, any organization or club looking for on campus community service can volunteer to help these
         engineering students out the weekend of the conference. Please support the NMSU chapter of ASME so
         that they can host one of the greatest ASME conferences ever.

Section 3: Rationale
         There is a need to make ASNMSU more of a part of the larger community. This Assistant PR director will strive to
         foster a working relationship with the larger communities in which we reside and to ensure that ASNMSU is a vital
         part of these communities and they are a vital part of ASNMSU. By meeting with local leaders and being the de
         facto ASNMSU representative for community service, this individual will have the opportunity to make certain that
         the students of NMSU and their student government are working in concert with the community. A far cry from the
         earlier proposed bill, this will instead make the proposed position an Assistant Director as opposed to the previous
         liberal, big-government idea of wanting the position to be an Executive Director. The hope is that this position
         matures and develops in such a way that it will one day become an Executive Director position if it is fiscally
         possible.

         nation. If they place 1st or 2nd at this competition they will have the chance to defend their title and

         ASNMSU and they hope that it passes the three-tiered committee structure, known as the Iron Triangle,
         with ease. If it does pass, they will throw a kegger on April 12th.

                 7.   Other projects as assigned by the ASNMSU President.

Proposed Change: Delete the above underlined sections and renumber all subsequent sections.

Section 3: Rationale
         The above underlined section is a redundancy in the ASNMSU Law Book. Most likely a typographical error, it is
         listed under both “Qualifications of the ASNMSU Executive Director of Services” and “Duties and Responsibilities
         of the ASNMSU Executive Director of Services.” Seeing as the above sections really pertain to the duties and not
         the qualifications of this position, we should eliminate this error. Furthermore, the duties as listed in the
         “Qualifications” section are not even current with the duties listed in the “Duties and Responsibilities” section.

REMOVING SECTION 8-3-3-K OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAW BOOK AND RENUMBERING ALL
SUBSEQUENT SECTIONS. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW
MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To remove section 8-3-3-K of the 2002-2003 NMSU law book regarding state law in ASNMSU funding procedures.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         8-3-3-K reads

        No funds will be allocated for items prohibited by New Mexico State Law (currently alcohol, gifts, and donations,
        etc.).

        Removal:

        Entire section.

Section 3: Rationale
         The current ban on items prohibited by state law has a number of problems with its enforcement. First, neither
         ASNMSU Senators nor members of the executive are required or asked to be familiar with New Mexico State law.
         These lengthy statutes would require much more from ASNMSU senators in order to be fully acquainted with them.
         In addition, the requirement of adhering to state law will require ASNMSU legislators to follow New Mexico
         Statute challenges in court and changes in the state legislature. Second, a problem regarding state law is very
         important to consider. State law may prohibit the funding of certain events that ASNMSU may feel are educational
         or benefit the students as a whole. See companion bill #155.

         All members of ASNMSU are entitled, upon the presentation of a valid, current Student I.D. to:

         A.            Free admission to all ASNMSU subsidized events and activities unless otherwise provided for by law;
         B.            Participate in all intramural athletic and activities programs;
         C.            Participate without charge, in all other ASNSMU subsidized programs unless otherwise provided for
                       by law;
         D.            Receive without charge the Round Up;
         E.            All other rights and privileges of membership in ASNMSU.


         AMENDMENT:

         All members of ASNMSU are entitled, upon the presentation of a valid, current
Student I.D. to:

         A. Free admission to events and activities substantially funded by ASNMSU;
         B. Participate in all intramural athletic and activities programs;
         C. Participate without charge, in all other ASNMSU substantially funded programs unless otherwise provided for
            by law;
         D. Receive without financial charge the Round Up;
         E. All other rights and privileges of membership in ASNMSU.

Section 3: Rationale
         The current wording of “Subsidize” provides serious problems for ASNMSU and on-campus activities. Subsidize
         can be reasonably defined as promotion. Therefore, anything that the director of activities helps advertise could be
         considered an ASNMSU event, entitling ASNMSU students to free admission. Through no great stretch, anything
         advertised in the Round Up (an ASNMSU Base Program) could be considered an ASNMSU event. Once again, this
         would entitle ASNMSU students free admission to all of these events. The replaced wording of “substantially
         funded” requires that the money for the event or activity come directly from ASNMSU and not from some vague
         promotional source. It also requires that the funding not be miniscule. For example, Bill #86 provided funding for
         Dancers Unlimited to purchase costumes for their Spring Concert. Under current law, all ASNMSU folk are entitled
         to free admission. Under revised law, since the event is not in itself being financed, this great organization can still
         sell tickets to ASNMSU students.

Section 3: Appropriation
         Four thousand four hundred and forty-nine dollars and no cents ($4449.00) shall be appropriated to the
         account of the Executive from the ASNMSU Club Account.

Section 4: Rationale
         The ASNMSU computers and network were in dire need of upgrade and repair. With the free machines
         garnished from the computer lab, the executive chose to upgrade the existing Senate computers, as well as
         add several more computers to the executive staff cubicles, creating a much better technological work
         environment. You have all used the old computers, and know how slow everything went, so you understand
         that this upgrade has been a long time coming. The price tag on all this work is less than what two new
         computers would have cost, after installation, and this investment is well worth it.

         Four Thousand four hundred dollars and no cents (4400.00) shall be appropriated to the account of Bataan

Section 4: Rationale
         The Bataan Drill Team was the national champion in 1996 and 1997 and since has fallen from the national
         champion position. The current rifles they use for the armed drill team competition are over 15 years old.
         New rifles would provide much needed equipment for them to compete at a high level.

Section 4: Rationale
         The Engineering Council is proud to represent the students of the College of Engineering of NMSU.
         Advertising is vital to the Engineering Council to promote the council as well as the numerous
         organizations that comprise the council. It is intended to provide essential information regarding
         engineering activities, organizations, departments, employment opportunities, scholarship opportunities
         and, of course, ASNMSU.
         With this, as participation in the council is lagging, it is hoped that participation will be greatly improved.

         included for the week include a basketball tournament, volleyball, penny jars, banner design, tug-of-war
         impromptu design, dunking booth, and whipped cream pie throwing. The impromptu design competition
         involves designing a structure to safely and securely house/transport a raw egg under different
         circumstances such as launching or dropping from great heights. E-Week is a tradition that has been
         enjoyed by students for many years.

Section 4: Rationale
         These members of ASCE are proud to represent their fellow students of civil engineering at NMSU at the Regional
         ASCE Competition. This competition serves not only as a competition but also an opportunity for these students to
         apply the design skills they have received over their course of study at NMSU. This year the Regional ASCE office
         has chosen to have the two events of the Regional Competition be done in separate venues. The steel bridge will be
         conducted in Albuquerque while the Concrete Canoe will be conducted at Caballo Lake. As such the NMSU ASCE
         Chapter is responsible for readying Caballo Lake for the Concrete Canoe event. Both the Concrete Canoe and the
         Steel Bridge team have been working hard over this past year to prepare for the Regional Competition. Both teams
         have been fortunate to have had funds through fund raising throughout the year and donations however, as the
         competition gets closer the need for funding increases as final touches and testing of the structures need to be done
         in preparation for the competition. As such ASCE would sincerely appreciate support from ASNMSU.

         Proposed Action: Add the underlined sections.

Section 3: Rationale
         With the continuing advancements in technology, students now have the capability of freely moving around with
         laptop computers that are wireless capable and getting votes from students. In an opinion by Attorney General
         Joshua Kouri, it has been stated that this ability for candidates to move around freely and procure votes without
         being in a polling place, where the rules governing their actions can be enforced, provides an opportunity for the
         tainting of election results. This bill has been written with others to ensure that rules are observed with the invention
         of this new technology. Otherwise, the election process would lose its standing as the voice of the students and
         more of a popularity contest, where candidates can go around getting votes from people who may not be informed
         on the candidates and their stances. This will ensure that candidates remain ethical in their campaigning tactics.
         Additionally, this bill makes sure that temporary and/or additional Internet voting sites observe the same rules as
         computer labs.

Section 4: Rationale
         The NMSU Bicycle Racing Team is a fairly new organization to E-Council and is in need of new jerseys. These
         jerseys will be worn for competitions on a collegiate and local (New Mexico) level. Unfortunately, they will not be
         reused for more than one year due to current sponsors being printed on the jerseys. This team has been practicing
         hard as well as working hard to raise funds to purchase these new jerseys. Please support the NMSU Bicycle Racing
         Team!

CREATING SECTION 3-11-4-L OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF
THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

Section 1: Purpose of Act
         To create a board to oversee the funding of cultural activities by ASNMSU.

Section 2: Main Provisions
         L.      Appoint members of the Cultural Event Board and chair the Cultural Event Board according to the
                 following guidelines:
                 1. Voting members of the board shall include one student representative appointed by each of the
                      following organizations: Black Programs, Chicano Programs, Native American Programs, and Greek
                      Programs.
                 2. Ex-officio members of the board shall include faculty advisors from each of the following programs:
                      Black Programs, Chicano Programs, Native American Programs, and Greek Programs.
                 3. The board shall review specific written requests for funding of cultural events on campus, and shall
                      vote on the expenditures.
                 4. No expenditure shall be considered or accepted without a specific written request.
                 5. No single cultural entity shall ask for total funding in excess of five thousand five hundred dollars
                      ($5500.00) in a single fiscal year.
                 6. Any organization describing itself as a cultural entity may approach the committee for funding of
                      cultural events on campus.
                 7. The Cultural Event Board shall meet within two weeks of any specific written request that has been
                      presented to the Director of Activities by an organization describing itself as a cultural entity.
                 8. Events that are not advertised and available to an ASNMSU member at large shall not receive funding
                      from this board.
                 9. The director of Activities retains the right to accept or deny funding of any event, and may choose to
                      fund cultural events without the consent of the board in emergency situations, or if the board fails to
                      achieve quorum.
                 10. The meeting shall be run according to Roberts Rules of Order (revised).

Section 3: Rationale
         The current system prescribes no checks and balances on a significant portion of money allocated in the Activities
         section of the GAA. Several problems currently exist, including the funding of “events” with dubious cultural
         relevance, little or no public notification, and exclusion of cultures that lack academic departments. Currently,
         student fees are supporting Superbowl Parties and numerous other eventless food purchases instead of fulfilling their
         intended purpose: to help increase cultural awareness and understanding on the NMSU campus.


           CHAPTER 13: SENATE BILLS                                                                              265
        There are also many good examples of proper spending on well publicized and attended events, which should not be
        hindered from their good works by the occasionally overbearing red tape and beurocracy of the ASNMSU Senate.
        The tens of thousands of dollars set aside in the Activities budget for cultural enrichment should go to these
        deserving programs who seek to enlighten and inform the NMSU community about their culture and way of life.
        These programs should experience little or no delay in funding of their event, as the board is small enough to be
        quickly assembled to review requests for funding.

        ASNMSU has the responsibility to ensure that each dollar student fees generate is spent properly. The current
        Cultural Programs share that responsibility, and should be the best source of recommendations on how the money
        should be appropriated to further diverse cultural visibility on campus. This amendment eliminates the cultural bias
        that existed in previous GAA’s, allows the existing cultural organizations access to the same amount of funding as in
        previous years, prescribes the method by which these funds are to be approved, and allows other culturally based
        organizations access to highlight their own culture through support from the Cultural Board and ASNMSU.

         wage (as allowed for by title 51 of the U.S. Code) plus the ASNMSU Minimum Wage Adjustment Factor for eighty
         (80) hours a month [four hundred ninety five ($495.00)] per month while performing the duties of the ASNMSU
         President.

3-4-5.   ASNMSU Minimum Wage Adjustment Factor
         ASNMSU Executive salary limits shall be computed using an ASNMSU Minimum Wage Adjustment Factor of two
         dollars and no cents ($2.00). No executive salary shall exceed this amount under any circumstances.

Section 3: Rationale
         The executive salaries, across the board, are antiquated and do not accurately reflect the time put in, or the
         responsibilities held by the individual positions. This years GAA seeks to rectify the inadequacies of the executive
         salaries by increasing them to a more respectable level, and allow room for further growth. Currently, the Federal
         Minimum Wage and the number of hours expected were the deciding factor in determining the upper level of pay
         for individuals. This semi-static cap is a fiscally sound idea, however the Federal Minimum Wage has not changed
         since September 1, 1997. This lack of responsiveness to need, combined with the difficulty of changing wages
         across departments in the law book, has led this Senator to believe that a minimum wage (+) scheme would be more
         beneficial and easier to implement. The modification factor should be kept in one area of the Law book, and simply
         referred to and changed when necessary. Given that minimum wage is currently $5.15, and students are limited to
         working no more than 80 hours per month, a monthly salary cap, such as the one that exists in the current President
         and Vice President salaries could also be represented as “not to exceed the current applicable minimum wage (as
         allowed for by title 51 of the U.S. Code) plus the ASNMSU Minimum Wage Adjustment Factor for eighty (80)
         hours a month”, where the ASNMSU Minimum Wage Adjustment = $2.00 in the executive salary section of the
         Law book.

         This change will also allow future budget committees to easily and intuitively change salaries of executives in
         accordance with the positions necessity for funding, as opposed to the current system which theoretically limits the
         number of hours allowed to be worked, and thus the funding available. It is the position of the author that there is
         always something that can be done in every department to better the services to the student body, and every
         executive and assistant should work 80 hours a month for the betterment of the organization.

         While this series of bills has the possibility of raising the total salary level of the executive to a level that would be
         obscene in total dollars, it is worth remembering that every GAA is written and passed by the Senate before it goes
         into law. As part of checks and balances on executive salaries, the Senate acts as the final funding authority. The
         Senate is charged with the duty to keep salaries at a modest level while maintaining the organizations ability to
         attract and retain qualified individuals in these important executive positions.

  CREATING SECTION 8-3-3-N-6 AND 8-3-3-N-7 OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED
  BY THE SENATE OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

  Section 1: Purpose of Act
           To limit the number of teams allowed to compete at the same competition, and to eliminate the existing
           “alternate” loophole.

  Section 2: Main Provisions
                   8-3-3-N-6.         The ASNMSU Senate shall fund the expenses of only one team per event to
                                      travel and compete in a competition. Any additional team that the organization
                                      decides to send must present a separate bill, with separate community service
                                      and college council appropriation.

                    8-3-3-N-7.        The number of alternates for a team is limited to twenty percent (20%) of the
                                      minimum number of members that are required to participate in the competition.
                                      Teams who compete in physically strenuous activities, or in competitions where
                                      there is a strong likelihood of injury may take alternates for no more than
                                      seventy percent (70%) of the minimum number of members that are required to
                                      participate in the competition.

  Section 3: Rationale
           For far too long, the ANSMSU Senate has seen bills that take advantage of loopholes in the existing law.
           Clubs taking multiple teams and taking an alternate for each member have presented an increasing strain on
           the limited student fee monies that are available for club travel. These laws are necessary to protect the
           surplus from excessive “vacation” spending, by funding only those teams, members, and alternates that
           need to go. This is necessary to ensure that all the smaller organizations have money available to them for
           their trips, and that student fee monies are going to help teams compete, and not to free trips.

  XLVI-02-03-#177                                                                                            Passed

  AMENDING SECTION 8-4-4-J OF THE 2002-2003 ASNMSU LAWBOOK. BE IT ENACTED BY THE SENATE OF
  THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY:

  Section 1: Purpose of Act
           To ease the paperwork load on the Comptrollers office at the end of the fiscal year.



             CHAPTER 13: SENATE BILLS                                                                               281
Section 2: Main Provisions

                  8.4.4.J All ASNMSU revenue and appropriated funds remaining in ASNMSU funded accounts shall
                  revert to the ASNMSU Surplus Account each June 30, unless otherwise prescribed by law

                  1.   The last day to file reimbursements for funds will be June 15th for trips taken prior to June 15th.
                  2.   Trips scheduled after June 15th, but before the first Senate meeting shall file reimbursement requests
                       within 30 days of returning or the funds will be lost.

Section 3: Rationale
         Currently, there is a mad scramble for the Comptrollers office to close down accounts and finalize financial
         statements at the end of the university fiscal year. This process is slowed even more by clubs turning in paperwork
         during the last two weeks of the fiscal year. This bill will require clubs to turn in paperwork before the fiscal year
         ends, and will allow for a smooth conclusion to the funding process.

         for the Pi Delta Chapter of Chi Omega to represent New Mexico State University. The officers will be
         doing numerous workshops and attending leadership seminars to bring back to their chapter and to the
         Greek community at NMSU.
