Rules Committee

Rules Commitee Charge

The role of the Rules Committee shall be to review the ASM bylaws to recommend changes in their format and content, primarily to ensure that the ASM bylaws are clear and not contradictory. The Rules Committee shall not have the authority to change ASM bylaws; that authority rests solely with the ASM Student Council, except as otherwise provided in the ASM Constitution and Bylaws. The Rules Committee shall also be responsible for the maintenance and updating of the ASM bylaws.

The Rules Committee shall create and retain a master copy of the ASM bylaws which records all changes made to the bylaws from the date of its first meeting. These changes shall reflect the history of the ASM bylaws; information in the bylaws shall be updated to reflect deletions and additions, but all language shall be retained for the sake of ASM history.

The Rules Committee shall also act as an expert panel to review changes to the ASM bylaws proposed by other entities. This committee shall also be responsible for reviewing all new grant/space allocation legislation, forms, and applications for review prior to their distribution and use. All of the aforementioned documents shall require a designated time, no less than on month, to ensure time for form standardization and training before enactment.


Rules Committee Membership

The Rules Committee shall be composed of no fewer than three and no more than nine members of the ASM Student Council. Up to three members may be appointed by the ASM Nominations Board. The SSFC, SACGB, and Finance Chairs or their designees may also sit on Rules Committee.
