During Saturday's plenary session, a proposal to give Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) district presidents General Assembly (GA) voting privileges went down to defeat once again. The proposal did not receive the necessary two-thirds vote required to amend the bylaws and an initiative that begin in 1994 came to an end. The UUA Board of Trustees had recommended approval of the change by a vote of 12 to 9 with 1 abstention.
The process began Friday to select one of five Study/Action Issues for intensive Unitarian Universalist (UU) study:
Saturday's plenary session selected the last issue, "building religious tolerance through interfaith cooperation", and started a three year process to result in a Statement of Conscience on the issue. If adopted, it will become official UUA policy.
