The ASOSU House of Representatives was created in 2009, and contains 25 members (20 Undergraduate Representatives and 5 Graduate Representatives) who serve for a term of one year. The body is chaired by the Speaker of the House, elected from the student body at large. The House of Representatives exists primarily as the fiscal arm of the ASOSU and is tasked with handling all major budgetary allocations.

 

The ASOSU House of Representatives holds meetings every Wednesday at 7 PM on Zoom [Meeting ID: 421-407-180]

 Standing Rules of the House of Representatives

House of Representatives

Ways and Means

The House Ways and Means Committee is a standing committee that reviews all ASOSU annual budgeting requests and sits on ASOSU’s student advisory board. The committee is also tasked with presenting the annual ASOSU budget to the Student Fee Committee (SFC).

 

Appropriations and Budgets

Appropriations and Budgets is a standing committee that reviews and assists all Student Fee budgeting requests excluding the budget for ASOSU. Members sit in groups of two in a non-voting capacity on the student advisory boards of all student fee funded units. 

 

House Projects

The ASOSU House of Representatives is required to conduct two projects outside of House meetings, that is overseen by the Projects Committee, a standing committee. These projects must share a common purpose of achieving a tangible change in the institution, policy, and make-up of OSU in a way that benefits the student body.

Members of House pass two forms of legislation known as bills and resolutions: 

  1. Bills are binding acts of Congress that affect ASOSU internally.
  2. Resolutions are non-binding acts of Congress which express the opinion of the students and/or the student government.

When a resolution that is making a specific request to the university is passed, it is sent to the director of the department that oversees that issue.

Any student at Oregon State University can author a resolution in support of or in opposition of an issue that affects students. However, all legislation must be sponsored by a member of the House and/or Senate.
