Students can decide whether to keep the Student Government House of Representatives Wednesday in a vote hosted through OrgSync. The polls will remain open until Friday.

The SGA House has largely been inactive, and currently does not have members. SGA president Adam Alattry and vice president Christopher Lee have pushed to remove the body from SGA in order to focus on the Senate, which has recently added four members to the ranks.

“I think both of us had the same vision regarding the House of Representatives before we ran,” Alattry said. “It doesn’t make sense if the Senate isn’t where we want it to be to take on something else.”

If the SGA House is dissolved the undergraduate government will be able to focus its attention on the Senate, where problems remain like members not knowing how to write legislation. Through the spring, SGA will train its members to effectively voice student concerns using templates to construct the proper format on the legislation.

The notion to remove the SGA House began during last year’s administration, and SGA members said it lacked enough members for the executives to justify its existence.
For information on the reasoning behind the referendum and how it will affect students, senators will be tabling throughout the three-day voting session in the Library Mall.
