The following is the question that I submitted for Council Chair Yoshimoto, which was based upon the new council rules that testifiers would only be given three minutes to testify… and council members would not have a chance to respond until all people testifying gave their testimony:

How will the general public know and the council members confirm or verify mis-information or mis-representation of testimony if the council members cannot question the testifier immediately after their testimony is given?

Because once the testifier has completed testimony, and he or she leaves the council room, there is no protocol for requiring the testifier to stick around and answer questions the council members may have.
