Active and Current Senate Bills (2018 - 2019)

Active and Current Senate Bills (2018 - 2019)

Ideas or proposals submitted to the Senate are assigned a Senate Document Number and are entered into the Senate legislation system. The legislation system tracks all active and current bills and is searchable by Senate document number, bill name, academic year, and/or activity status (whether the bill is active or not). The Senate reviews a variety of legislation each year ranging from approving program changes to revising and creating University policy. All legislation is archived in the Senate Office and, if not online, is available to the public by request.

The following table is a list of all of the Senate bills for the 2018 - 2019 academic year, as well as any bills from previous years that are still in progress. To view the history and details of a bill, simply click on the name of the bill. You can filter the table with the search box or sort the table by using the up and down arrows at the top of each column.
