The Government of the Student Body senate will vote to ratify a debt contract with the Analysis of Social Services Evaluation Team of Story County at Wednesday night’s meeting.

The GSB has a longstanding contract with ASSET, which funds services such as the Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support, Ames Community Pre-School, Boys and Girls Club of Story County, Camp Fire, Center for Childcare Resources, Center for Creative Justice, Community and Family Resources and several others.

According to the contract, “The purpose of this agreement is to procure for the GSB and Iowa State students [and] their families certain services and facilities.”

The senate will also vote on a bylaw change, which would allow the senate to overrule the Finance Committee during regular allocation budget debates.

During regular allocations last year, the senate and Finance Committee were not able to come to agreement on a budget for Habitat for Humanity.

According to the bill, the bylaw change will save time and remove the chance of “being stuck in a potentially never-ending deadlock.”

The senate will take a look at funding the ISU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Week.

The bill is asking for a total of $4,925 for advertising, buttons, tent rental, M-Shop rental and a DJ.

Gail Ferlazzo, associate director of the Memorial Union, will also give an update about the Memorial Union.
