Correction issued on Feb. 18 at 1:59 p.m.: ASUH did not pass the resolutions regarding the HECO and NextEra merger.
The Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i (ASUH) introduced resolutions regarding Open Educational Resources and the merger between the Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and NextEra Energy during its Feb. 17 meeting.
However, ASUH did not finalize its stances as both resolutions still need to be reviewed by a committee and the general senate.
ASUH also discussed a resolution supporting voter registration drives on campus in an effort to promote civic engagement. The ASUH finance committee is determining the final amounts of funds to be allotted to Registered Independent Organizations (RIO’s) that applied for funding.
