Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Student Government Association

Legislative Branch

The Texas A&M University - Kingsville student senate is currently in its 99th legislative session.

The Legislative Branch of the Student Government is responsible for communicating the views and needs of the student body to the administration, faculty, and staff.

The Senate has long been the core of the Student Government. Each of the Senators represents students of a particular college or classification. For every 300 students in a particular college there is one representative position created. The constitution specifies the number of representatives for each classification. Most Senators are elected in the spring, although first-year undergraduate and graduate students are elected in the fall. Vacant seats are filled by appointment.

The Senate is a deliberative body, adopting measures via formal legislative rules. Senate Committees, on which all Senators and any interested student from the student body serve, investigate student concerns and prepare Senate business. Many Senators are involved in projects throughout Student Government.
