Can we deliberate as we normally do?

Yes. As the Moderator observes at every meeting, comments should be on the issues before the meeting and avoid being repetitive. In the interests of keeping the meeting brief however, please reconsider comments that only state support or opposition without offering a new argument for the listeners to consider. 

Questions are welcome, and you are reminded that if you have multiple questions, you should ask them all at once. While flexibility is usually allowed for a brief follow-up, please remember our bylaw (3-318) “a voter is not entitled to speak more than two (2) times on one question until others who have not spoken have had an opportunity to do so, and a voter is not entitled to speak more than three (3) times on one question, without first obtaining leave of the meeting to do so.” We ask for your courtesy in remembering that we will have staff to remove the foam covering for the microphone between speakers, and possibly clean the microphone handle and stand if someone touches it.
