Council Sends Prop 15 Back to Committee

Before the meeting officially began this evening, City-County Council President Maggie Lewis approached the microphone and announced that the Council would be sending Prop 15 back to committee.  She framed it as in the best interest of fairness.

Whew !  Given the politics of the situation, this was the best we could hope for tonight.

The new Chair of the Metropolitan & Economic Development committee, Leroy Robinson, will gavel his first committee meeting to order next Monday, September 24, at 5:30 pm.

That's exactly what should have been done. As I told my councilor, you don't vote on an item that is not on the agenda. Discussion is fine - final votes are not.

You also don't vote on a matter that, by Council rules, is already dead. You reintroduce it and then discuss and vote on it.
