Functions and Responsibilities
The Legislative Affairs Committee ("the Committee") shall, acting of its own volition or upon the request of the Senate or Senate Executive Committee, conduct studies, polls, or inquiries. Topics include-but are not limited to- proposed or submitted state, or local legislation, relevant federal legislation and legislative activities being conducted at other NDUS institutions. The Committee may bring any resulting recommendations and/or resolutions to the University Senate for consideration.
Because regular University Senate meetings during legislative sessions are spaced too far apart to allow the Senate to address legislative issues in a timely manner, the Committee may communicate to the appropriate legislative authorities its view, clearly identified as the Committee's view, with formal or informal consent of the Executive Committee. The Committee shall then provide the text of its communication to the Senate for ratification no later than the next regularly scheduled meeting.
