Student government passed a bill last night to fix the broken tables outside of the Cohen Center.

Student Government approved a bill Tuesday that will allow $4,470 to be used to fix the chairs and tables outside the Cohen Center.

The bill was authored by Student Body Vice President Cory Mentzer and sponsored by Senators Kallie Cahill and Loren Ifcher.

The tables, which have been in a state of disrepair for several weeks, used to provide a place for students to rest, eat and socialize between classes. According to the bill, the important fix would help the chairs last for “the next seven to eight years.”

SG passed the bill unanimously, and one senator said, “It may seem pricey, but it’s a lot cheaper than simply replacing the tables.”

When the bill was first read last week, it was met with some questions.

Sen. Thieldens Elneus asked if the repair was “really necessary.”

In response, Sen. Ifcher pointed out that the chairs “don’t have tabletops or umbrellas at the moment.”

Students should expect to see the tables fixed in about a month.
