The ad hoc committee drafting new Regental bylaws
decided yesterday to submit its bylaw draft to Student Gov-
ernment Council and Senate Assembly despite lack of con-
sensus among committee members themselves.
The committee, which had intended to hold its final

plete work on the bylaws. Later, it will simultaneously make
the draft public to the University community and submit it
to SGC and Assembly.
