What do the DFL’s state convention committees and commissions do?

0

There are five committees or commissions involved in the convention: constitution/bylaws, which recommends changes to the state DFL constitution and bylaws and reports on delegate and alternate challenges; credentials, which supervises registration of convention delegates and alternates and prepares a temporary roll at the convention; nominations, which screens and recommends candidates for at-large directors; platform and issues, which recommends amendments, additions and deletions to the DFL’s “ongoing platform” and items for the party’s “action agenda;” and the rules committee, which proposes changes to the temporary and proposed permanent rules and agenda for the convention. Last week, the rules committee proposed a new “drop rule” percentage for the convention. Previously, the dropoff percentage proposal was 5 percent, meaning that any candidate who received fewer than 5 percent of the votes after the first ballot would be dropped. The committee agreed to lower the dropoff percent
