After constitutional changes were passed increasing SAC's powers, two interesting policies are being proposed for tonight's meeting.

Well done morons, you've just proved you really are worse than exec, you don't deserve any extra freedom that council may have granted you.

You let little richard get away with being stupid, and just allowed any CSC to spend its contingency however it pleases even if it is just socialising...sorry i mean err 'networking'.

What can SAC do now?

They've removed the treasurers, changed the chair to the DPCS, and stated that SAC should set policy on student activities.

I was under the impression, and I could be wrong, that SAC always used to set policy so I don't really see how this changes things.

It was the usual thing: SAC could recommend policy, but only Council could pass policy.

Treasurers never seemed very invited anyways, or was that just me?

SAC had policy making powers when appropriately delegated - such as over the tours policy.

Not necessarily a bad idea in principle. My only concern is that it has already proven beyond the Union's powers this year (and I believe it is the President's responsibillity) the policy that Council and Exec has passed. How the hell are they going to cope with keeping an up-to-date record of yet another policy-making committee's activities?

Obviously I meant that sentence to read;

"My only concern is that it has already proven beyond the Union's powers this year (and I believe it is the President's responsibillity) to keep track of the policy that Council and Exec has passed."
