Re: [802SEC] Amended P&P text for Roll Call Vote Rules Change
I heartily endorse the sentiment expressed in Mike's reply to Buzz. The
proposal has enough checks and balances to provide for a process of review
if people lodge complaints against the actions of the chair, while still
providing the chair the freedom to keep Roll Call votes from being used
abusively. I think it strikes a nice balance.
