Dear SCI members,

On behalf of Sub-Group that is considering the issue of re-submitting a motion (Anne Aikman-Scalese, Avri Doria, Thomas Rickert and Mary Wong) here are suggested approaches for your consideration.

1.  Clarify that the Conflicts of Interest issue is separate from the issue of re-submitting a motion and the SCI has yet to discuss conflicts of interest

2.  Possible Options for Addressing the Re-Submission of a Motion:
a.  Leave up to discretion of the Chair
b.  Set one or more high-level criteria (in this order):
1)  Change in circumstance that merits the resubmission of a motion.
2)  Publish the text of the re-submitted motion as of the deadline for submission of motions (8 days prior to the next Council meeting).
3)  Require a seconder of the motion from each house as a prerequisite for placing the re-submission of the motion on the consent agenda.
4)  Allow a councilor to ask for the re-submission of the motion to be taken off the consent agenda and to request a Council vote on whether to accept the re-submission.

These also will be available in the Adobe Connect room for discussion at our meeting today.

Best regards,


Julie Hedlund, Policy Director
