The 48th Student Government Association senate will hold its first meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Rockwell Pavilion in M.D. Anderson Memorial Library.
The only legislation on the agenda is a presidential veto of the Medical Amnesty Protocol, called the Good Samaritan Act.
The bill, written by Michael McHugh, would provide limited amnesty to students who call for medical aid in drug- or alcohol-related medical emergencies.
The students would not be subject to sanctions for violating certain rules pertaining to drug and alcohol use and possession in the student handbook as long as they meet the dean of students’ requirements.
The veto was made by Michael Harding, who said he will release a statement today explaining it.
