The FAU Boca campus Student Government House of Representatives met Friday to discuss two bills, one of which was unanimously passed.

BRHB 17-43, better known as “the pizza bill,” passed 22-0. It was written by junior dual marketing and management major and House member Onur Basman.

Basman wrote the bill as a way for House members to meet their constituents and take a break during finals week to enjoy a slice of pizza. The event will be held in the S.E. Wimberly Library on May 2 and is open to students and faculty.

The total cost of the event is about $670. Twenty cheese pizzas and 20 pepperoni pizzas will be ordered.

BRHB 17-44, written by freshman accounting major and House member Noah Goldberg, was tabled until next week’s meeting due to structural issues with the bill’s language.

The bill would split the Campus Action Committee into two separate committees. Currently, the committee acts as a student advocate on behalf of SG and communicates the purpose of the House of Representatives.

Per SG statutes, the committee is one of three standing committees in the House.

    We need a full-time beat reporter on Student Government and the UP hasn’t given us one.

    We need to know what bills are being considered and passed because the SG website is almost never updated.

    Why is this so difficult to accomplish?
