How do the motions at the NFPA Technical Meeting (Tech Session) affect the final text of an NFPA Standard? Easy question, or is it? When you think about all the different types of motions, possible results of the floor vote, and couple that with the possible results of any applicable committee ballot, what do you end up with? See attached the useful pdf flow chart (based on Table 1 of the NFPA Regs) of the different types of motions that spells out how we end up with the final result. Just look up the type of motion moved on the floor, and you can follow all the different paths. Remember, though, nothing is final until issued by Council, see NFPA Regs for more information.
