EMS club came to the floor with a budget request for its new “Stop the Bleed” program, which the club is implementing with the Department of Public Safety to help stop injuries via the spread of emergency kits. The full $3124.42 was allotted.

An opinion regarding Gettysburg College students access to feminine hygiene products was brought to the floor.
