Two Student Senate bills were vetoed recently, one by the interim Vice President of Student Affairs Dave Kratzer and one by Student Body Treasurer T.J. Villamil.

Villamil sent an email to Senate explaining the vetoes. He vetoed the Senate-approved bill for six cellphone charging stations.

In an interview, he said he thinks the stations are a good idea, but he wanted more specific information, including reassurance that there would be six charging stations.

Villamil also wanted to make sure that Senate would have to give its approval if the project costs at least 10 percent more than the estimated $28,800 that will come from SG reserve funds.

Senate can override Villamil's veto if they pass the bill again by a two-thirds vote. Villamil said he hopes Senators will make changes to the bill.

Kratzer vetoed the bill taking $90,000 out of SG reserve funds.

In his email, Villamil proposed breaking down the proposed transfer. Of that $90,000, $15,000 would to go to the Florida International Step Show, $4,000 to Soulfest, and $71,000 to Student Government Productions for the Goo Goo Dolls' Gator Growl performance.
