There is the proposal being heard (presented in last open meeting by M Carling):
Commentary from Bylaws Committee member Caryn Ann Harlos: It was unclear until late last night precisely what proposal was to be heard as several versions were heard in Kansas City, at least one presented at the very last minute and a dispute arose when some members objected to this surprise presentation and did not want to vote immediately. The basic premise is that the LNC needs to be larger. MUCH larger with one argument being that is how the RNC and DNC are. While the argument is made that it would presumably allow for more representation, it would in fact not benefit the smaller states who can now align with some influence with larger states in regions. Further such a large size would make most of the very complicated and serious discussion be reneged to a more core “Executive Committee” or some other variation (this is inevitable) thus consolidating control. On another note, all Committee members were invited to put their contact information on the the LNC Committees page so that members could contact them. As of this time, only four members have.
All Party members are welcome to attend and are highly encouraged to do so.
