Resolution Procedures

  • Only the 'Resolved' portion of resolutions will be read.

  • The remarks of speakers to resolutions will be limited to 5 minutes.

  • The Chair will read the motion before voting occurs if the motion has been amended.
  • Resolutions may not necessarily be dealt with in order of listing; i.e., certain resolutions may be brought forward at the same time topics to which they relate are under discussion.

  • Members of the Resolutions Committee will be allowed to move to the floor to speak to resolutions on which they may wish to have input.
