As you might have noticed, the Speakers' request for resolution submission for the 2019 House of Delegates was earlier than in years past. One of the main reasons for this is that PAMED’s senior team, directors, and staff spend a considerable amount of time researching the background for each resolution. In 2018, 65 resolutions were researched. Given the amount of resolutions and background information, it is also important to provide leadership, reference committee participants, and delegates adequate time to read and inform themselves about the issues prior to voting on them. The background will be posted as it becomes available with the goal of having the bulk of the information online by Thurs., Sept. 26 (30 days prior to the opening session of the House of Delegates and before the ORB review on October 9th).
