Bob, You're right on that, but I think the issue
is: When and how can the voting members request a roll-call vote ???
under the impression that anyone voting could make such a request but what
happens if the Chair person does not agree to it ???
there a way to require such an action and how ???

agree with Paul on this matter. However since our P&P allow a chair
to decide all procedural matters, any chair may ask for a roll call vote at
any time they feel it is appropriate.
Dear EC members,
The motion to operate under the pending
rules change on Roll Call Votes was 7 approve, 5 disapprove, 1
The LMSC bylaws require a least a 2/3
majority of all EC members to approve a rules change for submission to ballot
and for adoption. The EC has 13 members with voting
rights. Greater than 2/3 of the EC members is at
least 9. In my haste to conclude the meeting, I didn't apply
this rationale, but upon reflection, it is
my judgement that motions regarding the adoption of a rule (regardless if
they are permanent or temporary) must require at least 2/3
majority. Therefore, the motion to operate under the pending
rules change on roll call votes did not pass as it did not achieve
at least a 2/3 majority.
