Student Government senators are leaving nothing to the imagination.

The Student Government budget and Senate voting and attendance records will be available online in three to four weeks.

Senators unanimously passed two bills that would place the records online during Tuesday’s meeting.

Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader for the Student Alliance party, said these bills will help students make informed decisions in SG and have a better idea about what their money goes toward.

“I’m really happy that the Senate is choosing to go in this direction,” Ossip said.

Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers said he sees no reason why these records should not be readily available to students.

“I personally am very proud of how I voted in the past, and I think most people are,” Meyers said.

He agreed with Ossip that it is important for students to be able to track where their fees are going in SG.

“Every student contributes to our $14.4 million budget, and it’s important that students have their say,” Meyers said.

As the Feb. 23 and Feb. 24 SG elections approach, senators also passed resolutions encouraging students to vote and promoting more sustainable election campaigns.

A resolution is a piece of legislation that states the opinions of senators without taking action.

The sustainability resolution comes in the wake of the distribution of fliers critical of the Unite Party on fraternity and sorority rows and in the Plaza of the Americas last week.
