Whenever you are dealing with a sunshine law (where items of business must be pre-agendized for public scrutiny) you have jumped outside of the default parliamentary assumptions of Robert's Rules of Order.

   • Under plain-vanilla Robert's Rules, non-agendized items can be freely moved (relatively speaking; there are parliamentary tools available to insert dynamic changes into one's agenda).

   • Under one's sunshine law, such flexibility is out-lawed, or severely restricted.

   • Under Robert's Rules, you can make motions in executive session and adopt them, without the need to exit executive session to do the act of adoption.

   • Under some sunshine laws, whatever you decide in executive session must be mirrored, or duplicated, in open session.


Beware. :o
