Pillars of Justice

The Legislation Process

Our legislation is divided into our Constitution and a number of Acts. The Constitution houses the most broad definitions of our responsibilities and powers, while the Acts define specific regulation for a variety of topics. 

The Operations and Evaluations Committee (O&E) is the primary keeper of our legislation and they are tasked with the responsibility of maintaining the Constitution and accompany Acts to best reflect the needs of our dynamic organization. It is through their work that we are able to comply with University standards. 

Once O&E makes a change and votes in support of it, the new legislation will go before Full Senate. Any legislative change requires majority vote of Full Senate twice. Changing our legislation is not easy, which allows a stable and thoughtful process.

Our Records & Archive

By Kentucky Law, we are required to keep accurate records of all our open-door meetings. This includes our Full Senate meetings and our various Committee Meetings.

You can view our archives through these links:

If you cannot find what you are looking for please contact our Chief of Staff. 

While it is required by law that we make these records readily available to the general public, we are more motivated by creating a transparent culture in which students understand how their money is being spent.

We spend your money. We feel like you should know where it goes. With that in mind, we want you to have access to the minutes and voting records of all the meetings in which we discuss initiatives and funding appropriations.
