Rule against redundant reading of report

Guest Cindi Lee

Recommended Posts

Question - We are a Board.  Staff presents a report at one of our meetings, and we have received the material prior to the meeting (it is also available for public viewing).  One Board member reads excerpts from the report that was already given.  He does this during his ten minutes of comments.  Can he be called out of order for doing this?

If this is strictly an informational report from staff and nothing is meant to be adopted, he may not read from it if someone objects.  A motion can be made to decide the matter (by a majority vote) if an objection is raised and he or someone else would like to see him continue.. See RONR (11th ed.), pp. 298-99 for the section on "REQUEST TO READ PAPERS" for full details.
