Re: [802SEC] Amended P&P text for Roll Call Vote Rules Change


I copied that text right out of Roberts where it was discussing
divisions of the assembly. So that particular language has
withstood a long time.

Right now our P&P gives huge power to the chair without all
that much guidance. The proposed text is clearly in line
with that philosophy.

The requirement to minute the chair's reasons gives sufficient
details in the event that someone wants to protest that the
chair is abusing their position.

I think in the end, it is like pornography, or at least art.

I don't know art, but I know what I hate!
