Two minutes to save the SA

Your Student Assembly did nothing during last night’s meeting.
After I gave them such a glowing review in my last post, I guess the SA has decided to quit while they are ahead. There were a few bills of varying importance presented as new business, but since these bills tend to get reworked in committee, I will hold my tongue.
There was one bill, however, that caught my attention. The Meeting Brevity Act proposes to limit individual speaking time on any one bill to two minutes, which I am in full support of as I have witnessed many an SA meeting drag and drag just because a few senators didn’t have plans for the rest of the evening. It will be very interesting to see who doesn’t want to put a limit on their face-time.
