An Act Establishing the Wording of the EZ Charge Expansion Referendum

WHEREAS, On February 10th 2010 the MSA Senate voted on Senate Bill 49-24, AN ACT Establishing a Referendum to Determine Student Support for an Expansion of EZ Charge, and

WHEREAS, the bill states:

“WHEREAS the Missouri Students Association Senate is charged to look out for the best interests of the student body,    and

WHEREAS a number of students have expressed interest in being able to EZ Charge at local business, and

WHEREAS a good way to discover the level of interest in such an opportunity would be to ask the student body as a          whole, and

WHEREAS it would behoove us as Senators to investigate this matter as soon as possible.

THEREFORE be it enacted that a referendum should be held on March 22-24, 2010 to determine student support for        an expansion of EZ Charge off campus.”

WHEREAS, to create the wording for the resulting referendum, MSA bylaws state the following:

5.45 (D) i. The form of the ballot, including wording and order of voting options, for all amendments, initiatives and referendums established by the Senate shall be defined and established by enactment and submitted to the BEC no later than 7 days before the date of the election.

THEREFORE be it enacted by the Missouri Students Association Senate that the following wording order and formatting of options are established for the referendum to be held March 22nd-24th, 2010.

Would you support the option to use your student EZ Charge account at

off-campus restaurants?

Examples of off-campus restaurants include: Chipotle, McDonald’s, Shakespeare’s, etc.

(  ) Yes, I would support the opportunity to use EZ Charge off-campus.

(  ) No, I would not support the opportunity to use EZ Charge off-campus.
