Legislative committee begins it work
| Prioritization of the legislation created a work order for the legislative committee. With newly elected officers, they were able to begin their work Sunday.
Now led by Rev. Joe Harris, the delegates became a legislative committee. The first two items they reviewed were petitions from Wespath related to pension funds (Petitions 90016 and 90017). After proposed amendments, questions and explanations the committee voted to recommend the petitions to the full plenary session.
Today the one legislative committee will continue to work in priority order, beginning with review of petitions related to the traditional plan.
The challenge for the committee is the schedule. They now have just one day to review about seventy-four pieces of legislation.
