Legislation 2016


Legislation

 

Legislative Items go though a two part process:

  • First, they were reviewed by the Legislative Assembly. Read an article about Legislative Assembly.
  • Second, the Annual Conference session will take final action on all items. This may be done individually or by using a consent calendar to approve or disapprove items that were given recommendations by 90% or more of the Legislative Assembly members.

You can view or download the action requests and standing resolutions below. To read the individual items or packages you will need the Adobe Reader program or equivalent software. You can download it for free from this site. (Hint: If you have problems opening a file, download it first by RIGHT clicking on your mouse and saving the file to your computer.)

*Firefox users: Firefox may not display items correctly unless you have set it to use Adobe Reader to open PDF flies. Avoid this problem by downloading the item(s) to your computer and opening them with Adobe Reader.
