In its second day, General Conference 2016 was still debating the rules that will govern the business of the rest of the conference. While the rest of the rules were approved, Rule 44 has not passed. At one point in the day, a motion to adopt the rule was tabled and then untabled. After many amendments came to the floor, the rule was sent back to the Rules Committee. The Rules Committee will bring it back to the assembled delegation during the business session today.
