Memorandum Number 645


October 24, 1990

Review of Bishop's Decision of Law in the 1989 Session of Florida Annual Conference Concerning Payment of 100% of World Service.


Bishop H. Hasbrouck Hughes, Jr. of the Florida Area has ruled that conference policies retarding 100% payment of the World Service apportionment by the Annual Conference and certain other administrative policies and practices of the Florida Council on Finance and Administration and Annual Conference related thereto are lawful. The Council on Finance and Administration and the Florida Annual Conference have acted, and are acting, properly on issues raised, and no disciplinary provision has been violated.

The bishop correctly refused to answer certain questions which were hypothetical, citing Judicial Council Decision No. 33.

The decision of Bishop Hughes is affirmed.
