All changes to the ASA Code and/or Playing rules are made through a legislative process. The first step to enact code legislation is for a member of the ASA Council to submit proposed legislation to amend the ASA Code and/or Playing Rules. All code and playing rule amendments are then voted on by the ASA Council during the meeting.
