Such expression will be based on formal actions of the student senate or a student referendum.

Each associated student government of the Montana University System will be sent notification of proposed changes in the aforementioned fees and the individual institutions will make a formal presentation to the respective associated governments prior to the time the Board of Regents is notified of these proposals.
  2. Included in the individual campus request for proposed changes in the aforementioned fees to the Board of Regents will be a copy of the notification to the associated student government and documentation of the formal presentation. It is the intent of the Board of Regents to not entertain any proposals regarding any fee changes or initiation of new fees without the aforementioned notification and documentation of the presentation.
