Diana Kuhlmann, vice president of administration and finance, explains the tuition rise to the senators, on Sep. 19, in the Senator Chamber. The administration and finance office made this decision last spring. 

Associated Student Government voted in the president pro-temp at their senate meeting on Sept. 19. Erin Buckner, senator and senior nursing major, was voted in with 12 votes. 

“Senator (Martina) Miller had 10 votes and senator Buckner had 12 votes,” said Victoria Goetzinger, ASG vice president and senior sociology major. “Senator Buckner will be our president pro-temp.” 

ASG was in the process of voting by secret ballot when The Bulletin lodged an objection. Another vote was taken by a show of hands. 

At the beginning of the meeting, Diana Kulhmann, vice president of administration and finance, spoke during the guest remarks to explain the university budget to senators. 

According to Kulhmann, this is to help them understand the impact of the decisions made by ASG on the overall university budget. 

At the end of the meeting, a resolution in recognition of Mark Runge, director of facilities, was also passed unanimously. 

“A resolution in remembrance of Mark Runge, whereas Emporia State University was notified of the unexpected and unfortunate death of the director of facility, Mark Runge on Sept. 16, 2019,” said Tayler Loudermill, senator and junior social science education major. 

The next senate meeting will be at 5:15 p.m. Oct. 3 in the senate chambers on the third floor of the Memorial Union.
