Senate may redo concert vote

The Student Government senate may take another vote Tuesday on the controversial $30,000 concert allocation that was voted down earlier this week. The money would have gone toward booking a nationally recognized band for a concert being organized by the Greek Week Committee.

SG senate President Pro Tempore Jeremiah Pederson has said that he plans to call for a vote of reconsideration. He voted against allocating the funds at the last senate meeting.

After he motions for the vote of reconsideration, the senate must approve the motion by a two-thirds vote. If that happens, the senate would then debate the allocation of the funds again and decide again whether to allocate the money to be used by the Greek Week Committee.

The senate voted 17 nays, 16 yeas and 3 abstentions at its last meeting on allocation of the funds.
