The Chairman stated that Mr. Babcock was free to remain as a guest at the meeting, provided that other members did not object.

The Chairman delivered his report. He strongly urged the members to attend the convention in Nashville, and to participate in the activities of the various Standing Committees. Only with increased participation by the National Committee members can the party continue to grow.

Mr. Hill moved to amend the Resolution to strike the entry for Saturday at 3:15 to 4 o'clock p.m. during which the Finance Committee was scheduled to speak. His amendment was seconded by Mr. Lovell.

Mr. Hill argued that neither he nor the Finance Committee had been consulted in advance, and that he did not believe that the time would be best spent as scheduled in the proposed Agenda, since the Finance Committee would shortly publish a detailed, written manual on fundraising. Other members spoke in favor of leaving the item intact, arguing that the convention delegates and National Committee members would profit from a discussion of fundraising techniques.

The question was called, and a voice vote was taken. Mr. White of Massachusetts requested a roll call vote.

Mrs. Wooten inquired as to why such a roll call vote was necessary. The Chairman explained that any member can request a roll call vote, which is the only manner in which a "division of the house" can be conducted by teleconference.

The Roll Call vote showed only 32 members present. A quorum required 37 members present.

Those members present: Charles, Lovell, Hey, McHugh, Gray, Spooner, Weatherford, Leka, McClellan, Ahuja, Anderson of Georgia, Mrs. Lovell, Wooten, Beckham, Hill, White, Clark, Mrs. Clark, Rossillo, Illions, Maurer, Francis, Chorpenning, Wilkinson, Cross, Thomas of Pennsylvania, Aldridge, Baldwin, Jones of Tennessee, Edwards, Pangborn, and Hackl.

Mr. Baldwin joined the meeting after this quorum call was taken.

A quorum being re-established, the meeting was continued.

The debate of the Pangborn motion to commit the proposed Constitutional Amendment continued. Some members felt that the Amendment was too important and contained to many flaws to be voted upon by the National Committee, and that the Rules Committee should study and improve upon it further. Other members argued that the Rules Committee would not change the Amendment, since a majority of the Rules Committee had already been consulted outside the Rules Committee and had agreed to support the Amendment in its current wording.

The question was called on the motion to commit. Mr. Hill requested a roll call vote which was conducted by the Secretary.

For the motion to commit: Hey, McHugh, McClellan, Beckham, Hill, White, Golmon, Plott, Mrs. Winters, Maurer, Arft, Cross, Stryker, Thomas, Aldridge, Newhouse, and Pangborn.

Against the motion to commit: Lovell, Gray, Weatherford, Dietze, Leka, Radzwillas, Mrs. Lovell, Wooten, Lohrmann, Cox, Hoffman, William Sailor, Lisa Sailor, Clark, Mrs. Clark, Morrison, Blankenship, Rossillo, Illions, Chorpenning, Million, Wilkinson, Wilson, Mrs. Wilson, Jones, Edwards, and Besanko.

Abstaining: Francis.

The motion to commit was not approved.

After one member had spoken for the Constitutional Amendment, and one had spoken against it, Mr. Million moved to close debate. His motion was seconded by Mr. Clark.

Mr. Hey asked to speak against the motion to close debate.

Mr. Jones raised a point of order that a motion to close debate is not debatable.

The Chairman pointed out that, under the Jones Debate Limitation Rule which was adopted by the National Committee on March 18, 2003, "any motion" is subject to debate. Under the new rule, three members are allowed to speak for and against any motion, resolution, or amendment.

Mr. Jones appealed the ruling of the chair. His appeal was joined by Mr. Lovell.

The Chairman stated that the rule was clear and applied to "any motion", and that therefore the Debate Limitation Rule actually removed the limits on debate which Roberts Rules of Order generally imposed on non-debatable motions. He reminded the body that he had pointed this out during the original debate on the rule, and that Mr. Jones had refused his recommendation to amend his Debate Limit Rule to correct this problem.

Mr. Jones insisted that this was not the intent of his debate limit rule.

Mr. Jones requested that a roll call vote be taken on the appeal of the ruling of the chair.

For upholding the Ruling of the Chair: Hey, McHugh, McClellan, Cox, Beckham, Hill, White, Blankenship, Golmon, Plott, Mrs. Winters, Maurer, Arft, Cross, Stryker, Thomas, and Pangborn.

Against upholding the Ruling of the Chair: Lovell, Gray, Weatherford, Dietze, Leka, Radzwillas, Mrs. Lovell, Wooten, William Sailor, Lisa Sailor, Daniel Sailor, Clark, Morrison, Rossillo, Illions, Million, Wilkinson, Wilson, Mrs. Wilson, Newhouse, Jones, Edwards, and Besanko.

Abstaining: Hoffman, Mrs. Clark, and Chorpenning.

The Ruling of the Chair was overturned.

On the question of the Motion to close debate, upon voice vote taken, the Chairman ruled that the required two thirds vote was not achieved, and the motion to Close Debate was defeated.

Mr. Clark requested a roll call vote on the Motion to Close Debate. The Secretary conducted the roll call vote.

For closing debate: Lovell, Gray, Weatherford, Dietze, Leka, Radzwillas, Mrs. Lovell, Wooten, William Sailor, Lisa Sailor, Daniel Sailor, Clark, Mrs. Clark, Morrison, Blankenship, Rossillo, Illions, Million, Wilkinson, Wilson, Mrs. Wilson, Jones, and Edwards.

Against closing debate: Hey, McHugh, McClellan, Cox, Beckham, Hoffman, Hill, White, Golmon, Plott, Mrs. Winters, Maurer, Arft, Chorpenning, Cross, Stryker, Thomas, Pangborn, and Besanko.

The motion to close debate failed to achieve the necessary two thirds vote, and therefore failed.

Mr. White moved to refer the proposed Constitutional Amendment to a parliamentary association for review and report back to the National Committee.

During the debate of this motion, the two hour time limit for the meeting under the Jones Debate Limitation Rule was passed.

Mr. Illions moved that the meeting be extended for one hour. His motion was seconded by William Sailor.

A voice vote was taken, and the Chairman asked for a roll call vote to determine the vote of the National Committee.

For extending the meeting: McHugh, Hoffman, William Sailor, Golmon, Rossillo, Illions, and Besanko.

Against extending the meeting: Lovell, Hey, Gray, Weatherford, Dietze, Leka, Radzwillas, McClellan, Mrs. Lovell, Wooten, Lohrmann, Beckham, Lisa Sailor, Hill, White, Clark, Morrison, Mrs. Winters, Maurer, Arft, Chorpenning, Million, Wilkinson, Wilson, Mrs. Wilson, Cross, Stryker, Thomas, Baldwin, Jones, Edwards, and Pangborn.

Abstaining: Mrs. Clark.

The motion to extend the meeting was defeated.

Mr. Pangborn moved to adjourn the meeting. His motion was seconded by Dr. Cross, and adopted by majority vote of the National Committee.

The Chairman declared the meeting adjourned.
