Bill # 49-50

An Act Providing for a Contingency and Reserve Request to the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Safety

PURPOSE: To provide a C&R request to the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Safety and to change the official name of the committee, among other business.

SHORT TITLE: This act may be cited as the “TigerWatch Pilot Act of 2010.”

WHEREAS, the charge of the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Safety, as per Senate Bill #49-33, is “the necessary research and planning to establish TigerWatch as an official Auxiliary of the Missouri Students Association”; AND

WHEREAS, the premise of the program mentioned in Senate Bill #49-33 lies in the report “The Vision of TigerWatch” offered by Former MSA Senator Josh Travis; AND

WHEREAS, the development of the program has shown greater promise than expected for the time it has had to mature; AND

WHEREAS, the strong development of the program has put it in position to require “Funded Pilot Status” now in order for development to continue at its current pace; AND

WHEREAS, acquiring “Funded Pilot Status” now will put the program in better position to both fully incorporate and better manage the primary objective of third party presence and the secondary objectives of providing a walk home service and establishing the Neighborhood Watch Unit.

THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE MISSOURI STUDENTS ASSOCIATION SENATE that the Missouri Students Association Senate does hereby approve, for immediate disbursement, the request of the Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Safety for Five Thousand Two Hundred dollars ($5,200) for critical investments in program communications and officer identification/uniforms.

BE IT FURTHER ENACTED that the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Campus Safety henceforth be dually, but primarily, legally referred to as “TigerWatch” and as a “MSA Funded Pilot Program.”

Respectfully Submitted,

Col. Josh Travis, Superintendent, Tiger Watch

Evan Wood, Operations Chair

Ian Krause, Academic Affairs Chair

Amanda Shelton, MSA Senate Speaker
