Another source of chaos if the State cuts the size of the Council from 40 to 20 members.

by Rod Williams, Jan. 12, 2023- Metro Councilmember Dave Rosenberg has pointed out that some provisions of the Metro Charter require that some city legislation requires 27 council votes to be approved. That means that if the proposed State legislation cutting the size of the Council from 41 members to 20 should pass, the Metro Charter would also have to be amended. That takes of vote of the public.  That may require a special election and if the public rejected the proposal to change the Charter, Metro Government would be immobilized. 

Also see, State House Majority Leader files bill to cut the Metro Council size in half. This bill does not deserve to pass.
