The Rutgers University Student Assembly (RUSA) plans on voting on two pieces of legislation at this week’s meeting on Thursday, Oct. 31, according to RUSA's public agenda. 

The first legislation will be the Community Oriented Review Board (CORB), which will authorize the student assembly’s ability to have a say in the hiring process of new officers for the Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD), according to the agenda. 

“Rutgers University students are the primary recipients of Rutgers University Police Department services,” the agenda stated. 

The second piece of legislation will be the Bill to Mandate the Consistent Documentation of the Meal Swipes for Charity Program, which, if passed, would require organizations involved in the Meal Swipes for Charity Program to document all its expenditures, according to the agenda. 

“Meal Swipes for Charity relies on guest swipes from students to raise money, and is thereby directly paid for by students through their meal plan fees,” the agenda stated. 

The new legislation will allow RUSA to be more transparent and more consistent in documenting the financials involved with the Meal Swipes for Charity Program.
