  • Motion by By: Ginger Hayes
  • Second By: Virginia Cisewski
  • Amended By: Richard Howland

  • Explanation of the Motion Numbering on 00-24, 00-25, 00-26. "The motion to table 00-24a - the amended version of 00-24 was numbered 00-26 as 00-25 died when that motion to table was withdrawn."

    The second call for tabling 00-24a was 00-26 which passed and was announced by Shari. Motion 00-27 was the motion made by Jim, Virginia - during all the uproar of 00-24 and 00-24a's table call (00-25) which was withdrawn and (00-26) which was simply stated as a motion to table 00-24a without extra info included.
