To extend the minimum time required for consideration of new business items at each business session.

Rule 3.  Order of Business and Debate

D. Scheduling of new business items

Items of new business submitted in accordance with these Standing Rules shall be the first business item at all business meetings except the first business meeting of the Representative Assembly. These new business items shall be considered for at least one hour 90 minutes at the second business meeting and for at least 90 minutes two hours at each subsequent meeting.

Impact Statement

Standing Rule 3(D) provides for consideration of new business items as the first order of business at all business sessions other than the opening session.  Under this Rule, the body must consider NBIs for at least one hour at the second business meeting and for at least 90 minutes at each subsequent business meeting. 

The proposed amendment would increase the time required for consideration of new business to at least 90 minutes in the second business session and at least two hours at each business session thereafter.  If the amendment is adopted, the chair will set the RA agenda to reflect the increased time allotted for new business consideration in each session.
