C "B", Filing Number S-188, Sponsored by
Amend the bill in Part B in section 1 in subsection 1 by adding after paragraph L a new paragraph to read:
Amend the bill in Part B in section 1 in subsection l by relettering the paragraphs to read consecutively.
Amend the bill in Part B in section 1 by striking out all of subsection 4 (page 4, line 3 in L.D.) and inserting the following:
‘4. Governance. The members of the coalition may act only by majority vote of the members present at duly called and properly noticed meetings when a quorum is present.
This amendment, which is the minority report of the Joint Standing Committee on Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development, mirrors the majority report in removing the provision of the bill that establishes a consensus-based decision-making process for the Employment First Maine Coalition and replacing it with a number of governance requirements for the coalition, including a quorum requirement, majority voting, notice of meetings and the power to adopt bylaws. The minority report differs from the majority report by adding the Executive Director of the Manufacturers Association of Maine or the executive director’s designee to the membership list of the Employment First Maine Coalition.
