Members of Senate pass two forms of legislation known as bills and resolutions. Bills are binding acts of Congress that affect ASOSU internally. 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. All legislation must be sponsored by a member of the House or Senate.
