This is our policy for bill endorsement/opposition:

  1. Member requests CSLC to endorse/oppose one week.
  2. The following week the request is discussed. Requesting member briefly states why CSLC should support or oppose.  Other members are invited to briefly state why CSLC should support or oppose the bill. CSLC members should feel free to debate whether a requested position be taken as it reflects on our credibility and reputation. The purpose is not to rubberstamp a request, but to add our voice for legislation consistent with our values.
  3. Members are ask to vote: (a)  Do they support the bill? b. Do they oppose the bill? c.  Do they prefer CSLC have no position on the bill? d. Do they abstain?   An official position requires a majority of members present who vote that day. 

When CSLC members have voted, CSLC may be listed among organizations supporting or opposing the legislation, and our position will be noted in the Executive Committee minutes and on the CSLC website.

 

Please write one or two paragraphs that state 1) what the bill would do and 2) the primary reasons why CSLC should support or oppose the bill.  Fact sheets are welcome.

What website or contact person can people contact to learn more about the bill? 

A bill previously considered by the members and on which a position has been established by vote of the membership may be reconsidered when significant changes are made to the bill and it is again brought to the attention of the members of CSLC.  An announcement and short justification for reconsideration shall be sent by email to the membership during the week prior to reconsideration and a vote taken at a regularly scheduled meeting of the membership.
