Student government decided against putting a new Associated Students of Madison constitution up for a vote Wednesday.
The new constitution would restructure ASM into four branches: an executive branch consisting of a president and vice president, a legislative branch made up of a senate, a judicial branch similar to the current Student Judiciary and an allocations branch to appropriate student segregated fees. Currently, ASM consists of a student council, the Student Services Finance Committee and the Student Judiciary.
Representatives said they were concerned students would not have enough time to become educated about the constitution before voting and putting it up for a vote would be too expensive.
“I’m afraid of spending four to five thousand dollars on what would functionally be an internal reform,” Rep. Cale Plamann said.
