Resolutions & Local Law

Votes

The  passage  of resolutions and local laws is by vote of a majority of the  entire  Legislature, except for special circumstances where 2/3 or 3/4  vote is  required by law. A full roll call can be taken on any question  when  requested by a Legislator and must be taken on all resolutions authorizing the appropriation of money. (When a Certificate of  Necessity  is presented to the Clerk, the rules of the Legislature and  the Charter  require a vote of two-thirds (2/3) of the total membership  for  adoption.)
