The two pieces of legislation that Delegate Alton Shepherd is sponsoring regarding the Council removal of Delegate Johnny Naize and the Council’s appointment of a new Speaker are Items (C) and (O) but the Council, during its first day, amends its agenda, which includes moving agenda items in a different chronological order AND removing items from the agenda. The Council does this by simple majority vote. Once the Council approves its agenda, individuals Delegates may amend it but it would take a 2/3 vote.
