GA Amendment Zoom Conversations
GA Amendment Zoom Conversations
The 225th General Assembly (2022) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved and recommended to the presbyteries, for their affirmative or negative votes, proposed changes in the language of the Book of Order that, if approved, will amend the Constitution. In November the Booklet with those 33 proposed amendments was emailed to clerks of session, minister members and others serving as moderators of sessions.
The Bills and Overture Task Force will present the proposed amendments in two groups at the February 7 and April 29 meetings of the presbytery. Those proposed amendments with tracking numbers 22-A through 22-BB will be presented at the February meeting and those with tracking numbers 22-CC through 22-GG deal with changes to the Rules of Discipline and will be presented at the April meeting. A block of 45 minutes will be allotted at each meeting and the proposed amendments will be presented in consent agendas. If the presbytery does not complete action on the proposed amendments in the allotted time an Adjourned Meeting will be called for Tuesday, June 6 to complete the work.
The Bills and Overture Task Force has scheduled Zoom conversations for those who would like to discuss the proposed amendments prior to the presbytery meetings.

It will be helpful for participants to review the material in the booklet of Proposed Amendments to the Constitution emailed on November 11. Each proposed amendment includes its IOB# (Item of Business number) in parentheses such as (POL-16 1b) which is a live link to the IOB in PC-Biz. Or go to PC-Biz at www.pc-biz.org. The IOB can be entered in the Search feature or the “Committee” option can be selected. Or select the "Committee" drop down window, select the committee from the list and find the IOB in the committee’s list of business. This will provide much background on a proposed amendment—the origins of the business, concurring presbyteries, comments and advice from advisory groups, the action of the committee and the action in the General Assembly plenary.
Also on PC-Biz under the “resources” tab you will find two documents detailing the current votes on the proposed amendments. One shows the votes of each presbytery on each of the proposed amendments and the other shows the current vote totals for each of the proposed amendments.
