Committee Rules:

Generally – The Chair runs the meeting, following the agenda. Anyone wishing to speak should ask to be recognized by the Chair. Questions are welcome at any time and participation is encouraged. The agenda also provides signals for each topic as to the type of participation anticipated (discussion, advice, voting, etc.). Members of the public are invited to provide comments as well.

Committee Members – Committee membership is voluntary and inclusive. All state personnel present or on the phone during a meeting are welcome to participate as members of the Committee and can offer motions or amendments and participate in Committee discussion, etc. But only one person from each state should cast a vote. (Members from the same state can decide who votes.)

Motions and Amendments – Official Committee decisions are made by motion (no need for a second). Motions may be offered by any Committee member, with or without an invitation of the Chair. The moving member may amend or withdraw a motion prior to a vote and other members may offer amendments, “friendly” or not. The Chair will allow discussion of motions and amendments prior to voting. The Chair may allow a request to reconsider a motion after a vote.

Voting – The Chair determines how particular votes are taken—including asking for objections only. State members participating by phone may be asked to identify themselves when voting, but otherwise, there is no requirement for a roll call vote. Unless the Chair asks for objections only, members may vote to accept or reject a motion or amendment, or may abstain. Staff will be asked to record adopted motions and amendments, but need not record vote tallies unless requested.
