Re: [802SEC] Motion to amend Rome to Vancouver
I would argue that we are no longer in session, and a motion to amend is
not in order.
That said, I still think we can change our minds and have a vote on the
reflector to rescind our prior decision and make a different one. After
all, Roberts is only a guide!)
However, I have not heard enough sentiment expressed by the EC that
people would change their minds. I don't believe we will get any other
options at this late date. It is Rome or Vancouver. Pick your poison.

I don't think that you can ammend a motion that already passed.
You can make a motion to recind the previous action and adopt a
decision, however, and be procedurally correct.
Again, while I'm not Paul, according to my understanding of our rules,
session ended at 6:00 pm EST on Friday with the close of the EC meeting,
it is no longer a motion to reconsider that would require the motion be
by one on the prevailing side.
