Approval of Minutes

Upon a motion by Karen Wadsworth, seconded by Cheryl Laube, the minutes of the last meeting held July 25, 2010, during the NCSL Legislative Summit, in Louisville, KY, were approved. 

Old Business

There was no old business brought before the committee. 

New Business

The Chair asked Karen Wadsworth, immediate past chair of the committee, to provide an overview of their work. Karen reported that a total review and revision of the index to the standing orders was completed. The committee also completed a Style Guide for the standing orders that was adopted by the Executive Committee on September 7, 2010. 

President Marchant addressed the committee. He reported that the Bylaws and Standing Orders are in good shape and has no recommendations at this time, but would welcome any recommendations of the committee. The Chair agreed that at this point there were no issues he felt needed immediate consideration given the hard work of previous committees. 

George Bishop mentioned that the online version of the Bylaws and Standing Orders needs to be updated and he would work with Angela Andrews to make that happen. 

Adjournment

Upon a motion by Terry Spieler, seconded by Susan Schaar, the meeting was adjourned.
 

Respectfully submitted,
Laura Clemens, OH, Recorder
