The Fourteenth ASOSU Congress

The Legislative Branch of the ASOSU represents the collective opinion of the student body.  It consists of elected members who serve in the ASOSU Congress.  The roles of the ASOSU Congress are divided into two houses: the ASOSU House of Representatives, which handles the fiscal policy, and the ASOSU Senate, which handles legislative policy.  Members of the ASOSU House of Representatives are elected based on graduate and undergraduate status and serve one year, while members of the ASOSU Senate are elected by the entire student body and serve two years.
