SCI colleagues,

This email is in response to the Chairman's request that I prepare a proposal for us to 'vote' on to resolve the discussion around deferral of motions. Many thanks to Julie Hedlund for her work in preparing this for your review.

As we discussed during our most recent meeting this past Thursday, Aug. 9th, we seem to be coalescing around couple of ways to address the issue of deferral of motions.  As you may recall, the issue was whether to create a rule in the GNSO Council Operating Procedures to limit how many times a motion may be deferred.  Staff provided statistics from 2010 and 2011 on the number of deferrals.  The SCI members seem to agree that the numbers were not high and did not suggest abuse.  Conversations on the wiki (see https://community.icann.org/display/gnsosci/Deferral+of+Motions) suggest two ways the SCI could recommend that the GNSO Council could address this issue:

1.  A light touch approach, i.e. request Staff to monitor deferred motions for one year and present the results to the SCI.  At that time, the SCI will once again analyze the results, decide whether deferrals are being abused, and whether a change to the Procedures is warranted; or

2.  Recommend to the GNSO Council a change to the Procedures that sets a limit on the number of deferrals.  The limit would be 1 deferral and the issue that was deferred would be the first item on the following GNSO Council agenda.

We would now like to see if we can reach a consensus on one or the other of these two recommendations to the GNSO Council on Deferral of Motions.  Please indicate on the list your preference for one of these two options (if not in agreement, suggest a third option for SCI members to consider).

Thank you for your assistance in helping us move item this to completion.

Kind regards,
