Shepherd: Merelice (email@example.com)
Co-Sponsors: Brian Cady(firstname.lastname@example.org), ….
Committees before which this will have gone: CDLC, Membership (approved),
The proposal is a change in the bylaws – specifically the section on how and when proportional representatives are elected to the state committee. The proposal would include changing the basis from counties to the ten proposed state senatorial regions mapped and described at: http://hopefulvision.blogspot.com/2013/06/proposed-green-rainbow-party-regions.html
It would also include what state com has already approved in concept but not yet changed in the bylaws, that is, regional conventions would be every four years instead of two and the terms of current proportional reps would be extended to 2016.
Summary: Instead of from counties, State Comm. Members will be elected from within ten GRP regions, which would meet every four, instead of two, years. Current StateComm rep.s would stay on 'til 2016.
Financial Inpact: Unknown
Implementation: tbd. (Merelice will help out with this as soon as she gets back settled from globetrotting, around Sept 24th.)
