This platform is in effect until the next County Convention which will take place in 2014.
Please review our current Platform before submitting a resolution at this off-year caucus to be sure that the main idea of your resolution is not already in our platform.
Off-year Caucus Resolutions are used as informational statements of the positions of the Johnson County Democrats. They do not become part of the 2012 Platform. They will be submitted for consideration to the County Platform Committee in the drafting of the upcoming 2014 Platform.
Resolutions must be submitted in clearly written form to one of the Platform CoChairs Robin Roseman or Dennis Roseman before proposal on the floor. The name of the proposer must be indicated at the top.
The proposer must be present when their resolution is discussed.
There will be a total time limit of 5 minutes for discussion of each resolution. The proposer will have a maximum of 2 minutes, followed by speakers alternating pro and con a maximum of 1 minute each, subject to extension via majority vote.
If there is not time to discuss all resolutions in this manner within 1 hour, all remaining resolutions will be passed on without a vote to the County Platform Committee for consideration.
