BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Standing Rules 18, 19 and 20 of the Council Rules are hereby amended by repealing them and enacting in its place a new rule regarding amendments, committee substitutes and re-referrals:

 

Rule 18. Council Amendments.

 

A motion to amend an ordinance or resolution shall be in order at any time when not in the hands of a committee, even if such ordinance or resolution has been previously amended one or more times. Such motion shall require a second, is debatable and shall pass without objection or, if a member objects, upon affirmative vote of a majority of the yeas and nays cast.

 

A motion to amend a motion to amend shall be in order. Such motion shall require a second, is debatable and shall pass without objection or, if a member objects, upon affirmative vote of a majority of the yeas and nays cast.

 

A motion to amend a motion to amend a motion to amend shall not be in order.

 

Ordinances or resolutions amended by the Council shall be referred to as a Council substitute or as a second or subsequent Council substitute.

Rule 19. Committee Substitutes.

 

Ordinances or resolutions amended or substituted by committee shall be referred to as a committee substitute or as a second or subsequent committee substitute.

Whenever an ordinance or resolution is reported to the council as a substitute or as a second or subsequent substitute, its original form(s), if any, shall not be reported to the council nor placed on the council docket, but shall be deposited in the files of the city clerk, together with all other data relating to the original ordinance.

Rule 20. Re-referrals.

 

If an ordinance or resolution after its second reading is re-referred to a committee, after it is reported out by the committee the city clerk shall place the ordinance or resolution on the council docket at the next succeeding council session for second reading and, unless other council action is taken, the ordinance shall be on third reading at the council session next succeeding the second reading.
