Good afternoon all,
The motion to amend has been seconded. If you would like to make a statement in favor or against the amendment, we’ll leave it open until 2100 on 25 Feb (tonight), after which we’ll open for a vote. Attached are the Main Motion and the Amended motion, the amended to completely replace the main. Considerable discussion has already happened in Signal if you’d like to catch up with the dialogue.

Yours in Liberty,
Sean

I prefer the Amended Motion. It is clearer than the original; musters evidence better; contains a more focused request for legislative action (calling on the House to reject SCR8); and ends with solid Libertarian alternatives for the General Assembly to consider. All in all, it’s more persuasive.

It's after 9p.  I'm on a Discord server with several members of the Mises Caucus trying to iron out the differences between another draft they put together and my preferences.  I think we made a lot of progress, but we're not quite all happy yet and they have refused to support a motion to table this matter until we finish.  Therefore I vote Aye on the amendment.

I am voting 'aye' on the amendment. The collaboration doesn't flow as well. Even the first paragraph sounded disjointed. Maybe it will improve, but the amendment was thorough and made some strong points.

I like the draft that Will, Amy, and Chris V. are working on together. Therefore, I'm voting "nay" on the current amendment in the hopes that a new amendment can be brought forth with the lastest effort that is being written now. Thank you. Please understand that this is nothing personal. My hope is to have a truly collaborative effort that satiates all sides.

At 2110, the Chair ruled the vote on the amendment closed, and passed 4-2-0-3.  The main motion has now been amended to substitute its language entirely for the original motion.

The motion as it stands is attached.

The Chair has further ruled there will be debate until 2100 tomorrow (28 Feb).  During "debate", discussions of the current motion (as amended) are in order, as are additional subsidiary motions (such as further motions to amend, motions to table, etc).  At 2100 tomorrow, barring any subsidiary motions in the meantime, the vote will open on the current (amended) motion.

We are now voting on the amended mail motion. Vote closing at 2100, 2 Mar. The vote stands at 2-0-0-7, with Nadine and Mary Pat as the two aye votes. (If someone wants to show that from signal, please do.)

Thanks for putting this together everyone (especially Mary Pat for restarting the e-mail chain).

I am abstaining from the vote. That makes the vote count 3-0-1-5. Thanks again.

Record me as an abstention as well. We’ll show the resolution as passed, but will leave the vote open until the earliest of all votes tallied or 9PM 3/2.
