Senate votes down change to cabinet
The ETSU Student Government Association Senate voted down Tuesday a piece of legislation that would have restructured the responsibilities of cabinet members.
The piece of legislation called for the elimination of two cabinet positions and movement of the responsibilities associated with those positions to two existing cabinet positions.
If the Senate would have passed the piece of legislation, the responsibilities of public relations secretary would have been moved to the secretary/treasurer position and the responsibilities of the secretary of the interior would have been moved to the chief of staff position.
This piece of legislation was written as a means of reducing the organization's expenses in response to the recent drop in university enrollment.
The Senate opted to maintain the current cabinet structure, as the senators believed the elimination of the two cabinet positions and restructuring of responsibilities would require too much of the secretary/treasurer and the chief of staff.
SGA cabinet members for the 2014-15 academic year will be appointed by the newly elected president after he/she takes office and will carry out their duties starting in fall 2014.
