Legislative Affairs discusses campaigns for the next year

The Associated Students of Madison Legislative Affairs Committee met Monday to discuss various campaigns for the committee to pursue over the summer and next fall.

Committee members discussed a central campaign that would encourage voter registration among students.

One of the possibilities the committee talked about was holding a voter-registration event to inform students as to where they can register to vote, how to go about registering and how to do same-day registration if they did not do so earlier.

Committee members also suggested reserving a table at the fall 2014 Student Organization Fair that would serve as a source of information to students about the importance of registering to vote and would assist in the process.

In addition, members talked about developing a stance on the University of Wisconsin System’s budget for the upcoming year in light of a proposed extension to the current tuition freeze.

Committee Chair Morgan Rae emphasized the importance of collaborating with other UW System schools when they develop a stance, saying moving forward would be “easier if we went in with a unified front with what we want in the budget.”

“I would like to find common ground for the tuition freeze in particular because I don’t want to fight the other schools on that,” Rae said.

In regard to the committee’s campaigns for the past year, Rae said Legislative Affairs has laid some great “groundwork” for its efforts moving forward into next year.
