Can a resolutions committee combine resolutions?


Recommended Posts

RONR (11th ed.), p. 635, ll. 16-27:  "In the simplest arrangement, the Resolutions Committee has only the power to put resolutions in proper form, eliminate duplications where similar resolutions are offered, and ensure that all resolutions relating to a specific subject will be offered in a logical sequence.  In other cases the committee is given the authority to make substantive alterations in a resolution, but only with the sponsor's consent; while in still others, by vote of the committee--sometimes a two-thirds vote--the substance of the resolution can be altered and the resolution can be reported to the assembly in the altered form as though the committee had originated it."
