ASUC President Connor Landgraf issued two executive orders Sunday to place referendums on the 2013 ASUC ballot.

The decision comes after the referendums were submitted too late for the ASUC Senate to vote to place them on the ballot by the filing deadline last Tuesday.

“After much thought and deliberation over the last few days, and several very sleepless nights, I’ve decided the best course of action is for me to issue these executive orders to place both referenda on the Spring 2013 ASUC Ballot,” Landgraf said in an email to the ASUC Senate.

Pursuant to the ASUC Constitution, executive orders are intended to direct the “taking of actions which are urgent and necessary to maintain the functioning of the ASUC until the Senate can again meet.”

The Class Pass Referendum would extend the campus’s contract with AC Transit for the next seven years. Students stand to lose unlimited access to AC Transit campus shuttles, including the night safety shuttle, if the measure is not approved.

If passed, the Health and Wellness Referendum would impose a $40 fee on students to finance a Wellness Center as well as the construction of a Memorial Stadium Fitness Center.

Clarification(s):
A previous version of this article may have implied that it was the ASUC Senate’s fault that the Class Pass and the Health and Wellness referendums were not voted in time for the filing deadline. In fact, the referendums were submitted too late for the senate to meet the filing deadline.
