I would like to reply to my own message and state that I offer this because
I believe it would be a better alternative to the other proposed amendment.
My hope is that the current problem can be solved at next week's meeting,
but my belief is that the below proposal will also help us avert this
problem in the future, even if the board currently can solve it without this
mechanism. Seconds are welcomed at this time.

Nonetheless, if the board does solve it next week, I would be happy to table
it for now while the house gets back in order.

I believe it is clean, simple, to the point, and a good solution.
