I vote Disapprove on similar grounds to Steve and others on the item “The LMSC Chair may suspend voting rights of an EC member with cause” and would accept, “without a simple majority of the EC membership”.
firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Shellhammer, Stephen J
I vote Disapprove.
I agree with the others who say that saying the Chair can suspend an EC member’s voting rights with cause is inappropriate. I would accept that the EC could vote to remove an EC member’s voting rights with cause, but not the chair all by himself. A simple majority of the EC would be sufficient.
The LMSC Chair may suspend voting rights of an EC member with cause.
I know the following text was not been modified; however, it needs to be. It does not explain what “assign” means. And for that matter the sentence does not say much. The process for approving the change is already described below. So it is clear what it takes to pass, otherwise, it fails. Where does this middle of the road “assign” come from? If it fails you can always submit a modified change request, and try again. I would recommend deleting the sentence.
The Executive Committee shall approve, assign, or fail to accept the proposal.
