03 Aug 2021 - Distinguished Committee members,
Four proposals were introduced during your meeting on Saturday. You then agreed on the following:
One, that there is no disagreement on the recommended 61 percent threshold for the first round of voting on the proposals to be presented to the LPDF, and a simple majority for the two proposals that proceed to the second round. I trust that this is a decision we can now lock in so that it is not reopened for discussion by this Committee.
