The Student Senate on Tuesday approved transferring $28,800 from reserve funds to the vice president's SG Cabinet for cellphone charging stations.
Senator and Unite Party spokeswoman Christina Bonarrigo proposed the legislation and presented the bill at the meeting.
She said the Unite Party put charging stations on the platform after students proposed them during the party's platform generation.
"I think it's time that we actually do things for our students," Bonarrigo said.
Unite Party Senator Matt Mountjoy said $28,800 spread among about 50,000 students equates to less than 60 cents per student. If a student has to charge his or her phone even once, it is worth the cost to that student.
Minority Senator Carly Wilson proposed using the money to add general electrical outlets instead.
Senators also voted unanimously to finalize seat reapportionment for Spring and Fall 2012.
In the Fall 2012 elections cycle, District A will gain one seat, bringing its total to nine. District B will drop from eight seats to seven.
Spring elections are based on students' colleges rather than on their addresses. The number of graduate seats will increase from 10 to 11, and the number of business administration seats will decrease from three to two.
Several senators addressed the Election Commission's investigation and the week-long postponing of the elections validation vote.
Senate President Micah Lewis had to quiet senators several times during Tuesday's Senate meeting. Senators debated whether to transfer reserve funds to SG Cabinet for cellphone charging stations in six high-traffic campus locations.
