How To Write Legislation

When proposing an idea it is suggested that you follow the steps below:

  1. Write down the premise of the idea in a draft legislation using the legislation document below. Use knowledgeable resources to craft legislation that can get your message to a variety of student groups and campuses.
  2. Use a CCSG committee to get it to the floor of Council for a vote. Use a committee that would find the topic relevant. Then contact that committee director, he or she would be able to help you introduce it to the whole committee.
  3. The draft legislation will be included in the Council Booklet and sent to all Commonwealth Campuses for review prior to a Council Weekend.
  4. Then it would be business as usual during Council to pass the legislation!
