Teleconference voting amendment passes House
A bill streamlining unanimous voting during a teleconference meeting reached the Senate recently.
House Bill 1127, which revises certain provisions regarding official meetings conducted by teleconference, passed the House Local Government committee on a 12-1 vote and the House on a 50-18 vote.
The bill removes the requirement during a teleconference that a roll call vote must be taken and replaces it with the option for a voice vote. In addition, the bill adds a requirement that should a voice vote not be unanimous a roll call vote be taken.
Rep. Tim Reed, the bill’s prime sponsor, told committee members it “streamlines the meeting” and would “save time” for board members.
ASBSD supports the bill.
