President Perez: “Because of the nature of the project, I would say that it’s okay to do so.”
ELLIS-WEST MOTION TO AMEND BY SUBSTITUTION.
Alderwoman Ellis-West: “I’d like to begin by asking that we move to substitute what is on everyone’s desk, Mr. President, the amendment that is on everyone’s desk that all of the colleagues have seen.”
President Perez: “I have to make sure I understand what we’re doing. Are we only substituting for item 1, because that’s the only thing in front of us. Right?”
Alderwoman Ellis-West: “Yes, Mr. President. We’re requesting to substitute the Ellis-West Amendment that the Committee of the Whole held on January 27. There were some additional amendments offered and considered and voted on that we thought were very, very important. Therefore, they all have been included in this substituted amendment that’s before everyone. We thought we could do this to expedite the process prior to reading the Ellis-West Amendment and then coming back to this one. So, we’ve included it all in one amendment.”
MOTION TO AMEND BY SUBSTITUTION PASSES.
Upon motion made and duly seconded, said motion to amend by substitution passed by a viva voce vote, and it was so declared by the Chair.
