Petitions

ASUCI

Petitioner Contact: John Robb – jmrobb@uci.edu
Petitioner Statement:

Due to recent confirmation of the remote format for Fall Quarter 2020, the petitioner calls for the repeal of B55-23 The 2020 Office Infrastructure Act. B55-23 allocated $12,500.00 student fee dollars to ASUCI office furniture that may not be able to be purchased or used in the Fall Quarter. The petitioner believes that these funds would be better spent on direct benefits to students in online resources. By signing this petition, I agree with the petitioner, and I call for this to be put to a vote according to the direct democracy clauses of the ASUCI Constitution.

Petitioner Statement:

The 2020 Bylaws Transparency and Efficiency Act was passed by Senators who failed to remain transparent with their constituents or the rest of the student government. The Senate passed a 62 page document within less than 2 hours with minimal review or consultation by other senators. Not only was R55-83 passed in a hypocritical and spiteful manner, the Act also prevents next year’s ASUCI from working effectively by:

  • hindering Senate’s ability “to enact legislation for the welfare and interest of the undergraduate students”  by increasing the voting threshold to pass legislation
  • requiring a townhall and review of bylaws through joint committees, to take up to 5 weeks
  • denying Senate’s constitutional right and obligation to “meet at least twice during the summer to conduct orientation, training, and deal with other business such as Executive Cabinet appointments”
  • granting Judicial Board full power of their policies and processes, and the Chief Justice the power to oversee Judicial Board staff positions
  • granting the Elections Commissioner (a neutral and unelected officer) the ability to vote, approve, and deny amending legislative documents

Petitioner Statement:

The Executive Cabinet has the power to appoint Justices, subject to approval by the Senate. The individuals nominated in R55-84 were not appointed by the Executive Cabinet. The petitioner also questions the integrity of the appointments (nepotism within the 2019-20 Senate and Judicial Board).
