  1. For consistency and explanatory purposes, it seems like at it would be better for the motions to ratify or censure to be explained under the chapter on incendental motions rather than so cursorily at the end of the chapter on the main motion. In the very least, it seems as though the motions to ratify or censure are different enough from the motion to adopt (e.g., recommendations about action to be taken v. not-yet-validated actions perhaps already taken) that the motions should fall under separate subheadings. I raised more specific questions about the motion to ratify in an earlier post
  2. I was under the impression from reading RONR 11ed that dispensing with the minutes means they are not read at the regular time of the agenda but are still read at a later date. However, in RONR for Dummies (which I know some of you are less fond of), it mentions a special wording where one adds "and approve them as distributed" so that the minutes no longer have to be read. From my studying, RONR 11ed makes no mention of that special wording or such motion. Is this still legal and would the standard characteristics be consistent with the normal dispense (e.g. majority vote and no debate)? Shou

    "A majority vote is needed to adopt a motion" is what is stated in RONRIB but I do not find anything for a motion to adopt. Is there a difference?
