Legislative Affairs Committee meets at 4 p.m. every Tuesday in the Dreyfus University Center room 235 with Ryan Kernosky serving as chair.
This committee focuses on researching state, local and federal policies that may affect students and the university as well as coordinating “Get Out the Vote” during voting years.
Kernosky said this year Legislative Affairs Committee is really concerning itself with research and writing of policies while working with the community.
“A big part of my job is being a liaison to outside groups, and I do a lot with OMNA. Previous legislative committees didn’t do that,” Kernosky said.
Now that “Get Out the Vote” has ended, the committee wants to work on getting more legislators to campus.
“We’re thinking post-election, we can get more legislators here to see where state funds are getting allocated. It would also be helpful for people to get to know constituents and know what’s going on with the university at a state level,” Kernosky said.
For those interested in policy and legislation, a student interest representative application can be filled out in order to become a voting member of the committee.
Students who have policies they want brought to a Senate meeting should bring them to Legislative Affairs Committee to review and research beforehand.
All meetings are open to students.
