Text
That the following guidelines for the Resolutions Committee, as revised, be adopted for use at this General Synod:
Task
It is the responsibility of the committee:
a) to receive, and prepare for debate, resolutions proposed for the consideration of the Synod;
b) to ensure that proposed resolutions contain clear and concise statements of what is intended by the sponsors;
c) to consolidate, and, if necessary, reword resolutions which deal with the same subject, after consultation with the sponsors; and
d) generally to ensure that the resolutions do not contradict the resolutions procedures which form part of these guidelines.
Resolutions Procedures
a) All resolutions not already printed in the convening circular, except those of a procedural or courtesy nature, or that arise in the course of debate, shall be written on the prescribed form and submitted to the Deputy Prolocutor for consideration by the committee before being put to the Synod.
b) The committee shall not debate the merits of any proposed resolution, but will ensure that it contains a clear and concise statement of what is proposed.
c) Any resolution presented to the committee may be accompanied by an explanatory note setting forth the considerations leading to the proposal. This note will not form part of the resolution.
d) No resolutions shall include any preambles (ie. "Whereas," etc. etc.).
e) The committee is authorized to consolidate and, if necessary, re-word resolutions which deal with the same subject, with the understanding that, in doing so, the committee will consult with the sponsors of the resolutions.
f) The sponsors of any resolution which is recommended for change by the committee must be consulted and asked for their agreement to change(s) proposed. If agreement cannot be reached, the committee has the authority to present its version, and the sponsors will have the opportunity to propose any amendments they believe desirable.
g) The committee may reject, or return for amendment, any resolution it considers to be:
1) outside the jurisdiction of the General Synod;
2) unclear or ambiguous;
3) inaccurate;
4) of a local rather than a national character;
5) impossible of performance; or
6) calculated to be a source of embarrassment to the Church.
h) No notice of motion, except one of a procedural or a courtesy nature, will be received beyond the time stated on the agenda for the reception of notices of motion except with the consent of a two-thirds majority of the Synod.
i) Any resolution which requires the expenditure of funds, the source of which have not been identified prior to the Synod session [ROP 15(b)] must be referred by the sponsors to the Expenditures Committee.
j) Normally resolutions will be dealt with in an order which is appropriate to the elements of the agenda or in the order in which they are received. However, if time for debate is limited, the Agenda Committee will decide which resolutions will go forward for debate and which should be recommended for reference to appropriate bodies other than the Synod. ["Motions with reference to reports from Standing Committees shall take precedence over other motions on the paper." ROP 12(c).] CARRIED Act 9
