Background

Proposal 272, adopted by the GPUS National Committee on April 15, 2007, states:

"The GPUS hereby creates the Apportionment Standing Committee to make decisions
regarding the implementation of the above formula The tasks laid out for the
committee include the following:

1. Designing spreadsheets that perform the calculations of the formulas
described above for delegate apportionment.

2. Soliciting the state parties to send the relevant data so that apportionment
can be undertaken with the most complete data. (If a state party does not submit
numbers in a timely fashion, the committee is empowered to use publicly
available data or to allocate the delegate minimum to that state party until the
next apportionment.)

3. Applying the criteria of this proposal to the data, plugging the most
accurate available numbers into the formula, and completing the computations.

4. Developing a formal challenge process for data submitted by a state party or
to the data entry or computational analysis, reviewing any such challenges, and
making the final decision regarding the numbers to be used.

5. Reporting the results of apportionment to the NC in a timely fashion and
presenting the proposal to approve the completed computations."

The Apportionment Standing Committee has carried out tasks 1-4 above, and is
presenting the following proposal as its 5th task.

The Apportionment Standing Committee has also formally decided that the
challenge period (see reference below to challenge process) will be the first
ten days of the discussion period for this proposal. The committee will consider
valid challenges as friendly amendments to the proposed numbers.
