SGA Constitutional and Green Energy Fee Referendum

June 28, 2010 2 comments

Tomorrow, the FIU student body will have the opportunity to take part in the SGA Constitutional and Green Energy Fee Referendum. In it students will have a chance to ratify or deny the proposed Constitution as approved the the Senates of the Student Government and the University Wide Council. If the students vote in favor of the new Constitution it will be automatically ratified and implemented as the new SGA Constitution.

Additionally, students will be asked for their input on the prospect of the implementation of a new Green Energy Fee upon the student body. As the name implies the fee’s funds would be used to make FIU a more sustainable university. If the students vote in favor of the new fee, the fee will not be automatically implemented. The referendum’s purpose is to gather the student’s input on the new fee. In order for the fee to be finally implemented, approval from the Florida Legislature and the FIU Board of Trustees is required.

Voting will take place from 9:00am to 5:00pm at Log on and vote!
