Administrative Sessions of the StC on Behalf of the Senate 

The StC holds administrative sessions on an as needed basis to hear routine or administrative matters that would otherwise come before the full Senate.  This allows the Senate to spend more time on issues that need broader discussion and debate prior to action. All Senators are welcome to attend administrative sessions.
