Anarchy Rules in University Student Government
UX                  After months of bickering over whether or not to disband
the Wisconsin Student Association
LU                   (WSA), the university student government, the WSA Senate
voted on April 15 to dissolve the
organization and make room for a new student government. In the meantime,
there will be no student government. The April 15 vote called for disbandment
of the WSA
by July 1, with the exception of the WSA Studentprint Office. The Senate
decision to disband
was the result of months of debate prompted by last fall's referendum which
asked students
whether or not they wanted the WSA to disband. Students who participated
in the referen-
dum voted in favor of disbandment by almost a two-to-one margin. The disbandment
QA!                 resolution also formed a Board of Trustees which will
oversee the trust of the organization
LX                  until a new student government is formed. On April 29,
the WSA Senate created guidelines
LU                  for the re-establishment of a student government. The
guidelines state that any UW student
or student group may submit a constitution for a new student government to
the Board of
Trustees. The Trustees will then formulate a referendum question to be printed
on petitions.
G                   The student or group that submitted the constitution
must then get 4000 student signatures in
;Z                  order for the Board of Trustees to hold a referendum
to vote on a new constitution.
