This year students can vote on three referendums. The information about these referendum's are listed below:

STUDENT GREEN ENERGY FEE SGA REFERENDUM:


Student Government Referendum for the Renewal of the Student Green Energy Fund.

Referendum Resolution:


The Student Green Energy Fee is a nominal student fee for a three-year period that is used to assist the University of South Florida in the mission to promote sustainability, mitigate total emissions, and decrease energy consumption on campus. The projects funded by the fee will be chosen and guided by a steering committee of students, with varying allocations per project.  Projects already implemented at USF Tampa through the fee include Share-A-Bull Bikes, Refillable Water Bottle Stations, MSC Solar Array and Energy Efficient Fitness Equipment. The Student Green Energy Fee is set at $1.00 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate students.

Rationale for bringing forth the referendum:


The Student Green Energy Fee Renewal Referendum has been brought forth because it passed a constitutional conformity review by the Supreme Court, met all requirements as set forth in the USF Student Body Constitution, and fulfilled the requirements within Chapter 707, Section 707.4 plus related sub clauses.  The Florida Board of Governors also requires that the SGEF be affirmed by the student body every three years.
