LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

 

For those who are interested in following GPSS efforts in Olympia, we have been partnering with ASUW to push for legislation that we believe will benefit students like you.

HB 2596 and SB 6334, Shared Governance:

Wisconsin style shared governance legislation was submitted with overwhelming support in the House and Senate. Seaquist, the chair of the house higher education committee, is looking to have a hearing on the House version this Thursday at 10 AM. It would be nice to get some people down to testify with me on this. The gist of the bill is very simple, so just about anyone would be able to quickly get up to speed and speak to it with authority. Anyone potentially interested let GPSS VP, Adam Sherman, know at gpssvp@uw.edu. Click on the link to see the bill language.
