Student Government and the Ames City Council will convene Wednesday for a joint session to address both student issues and also how the two governmental agencies can better work together. 

The joint session is typically held on an annual basis and allows for Senate members to get one-on-one time with the mayor and council members. 

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union. At 7 p.m. the Senate will convene in the same room for its regular weekly meeting. 

$12,000 in funding requests will be up for discussion on Wednesday, including $3,000 from C-Nettes, an all-girls majorette team, for uniforms and $3,300 to Students Today Leaders Forever to attend a conference in Texas in March. 

Student Government previously funded uniforms for C-Nettes this past fall for $1,390. 

Additionally, the Senate must approve that $6,000 be transferred from the Special Projects Account to the Election Commission to fund the recently approved public funding option for this upcoming election season.

This is the first year in recent history that Student Government is offering funding to presidential candidates to manage and finance their campaign.

Regarding internal legislation, the Senate will discuss whether or not to seat Bradlee Fair, former election commissioner, to serve on the election commission and whether or not to seat Sen. Kelsey Culbertson to the Rules committee.

The Senate will also discuss seating Jack Myers to fill an open senator position for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
