The Assembly Committee on Business Referral got the 225th General Assembly out of the starting gate Saturday morning by approving a handful of routine business items.
The moderator and vice-moderator of the Bills and Overtures Committee, Cristi Scott Ligon of the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee and Iris Santoni Ortiz of the Presbiterio Del Noroeste, presided over Saturday’s brief meeting, which preceded opening worship.
Among the items of business approved by the committee:
BUS-06, the agenda for the committee’s second meeting.
BUS-08, referrals in progress and final responses to referrals.
BUS-09, the agenda for the committee’s third meeting.
BUS-10, a detailed docket for the Assembly. The docket, which can be viewed here, includes 17 plenary sessions beginning Saturday and ending July 9. Because most committees have yet to meet, only items for the first three plenary sessions — all set for Saturday — have been detailed to date. Those plenaries will include proposed changes to Standing Rules, a necrology report, the Stated Clerk’s report, a budget presentation, the commissioning of mission co-workers and Young Adult Volunteers, and Saturday evening’s election of Co-Moderators.
