Here are notes from the AMS Council meeting of February 13, 2023:
Referendum questions: Council approved four questions to go to referendum in March, asking students to approve the following:
Members of the Trans Coalition made statements to Council asking that the $8 increase for gender-affirming care be combined with the general $52.50 increase for the Health & Dental Plan, but Council decided to keep the questions separate. Council also made passage of the $8 increase dependent on approval of the $52.50 increase, despite objections from the Trans Coalition.
Election appeals: Council amended the composition of the election appeal committees and named six Councillors to serve on them.
Election spending: Council passed a motion to allow an increase in the spending limit for candidates in the upcoming AMS elections from $450 to $750.
The next regular Council meeting will be on Wednesday, March 1 in the Michael Kingsmill Forum in the Nest at 6 pm.Back to news
