ICC Members – cdpACCESS Online Voting Reminder
The 2014 cycle is the first cycle where the new process for Committee Action Hearing (CAH) assembly floor motions will be implemented. At past hearings, assembly motions were voted on at the hearing.
For the 2014 CAH, the process will be revised such that anyone in the assembly can make a motion if they disagree with the committee’s action. If the motion is seconded, the moderator will announce that the vote will occur online through cdpACCESS after the Committee Action Hearing. The results of the online vote will be included in the Report of Committee Action Hearing which is scheduled to be posted on June 6th.
Successful assembly motions will be treated the same as they have been in previous cycles, resulting in an automatic public comment to be considered at the Public Comment Hearing. All ICC Members as of March 28, 2014 are eligible to vote.
If you are a Member, please take a moment to log into cdpACCESS and make certain you know your username, password, and voting PIN.
If you need to reset your password or PIN, please visit iccsafe.org/forgotcdp.
