Background

On July 3, 2007 the GPUS National Committee adopted Proposal 295, ratifying Proposal 272, which changed the apportionment of National Committee delegates to reflect Green Party strength. According to the language of Proposal 272, the deadlines for reapportioning the NC are past due. The purpose of this proposal is to amend the language of Article I, which schedules the reapportionment, to make the deadlines more flexible.

Proposal

The National Committee hereby changes the language of the section of the Rules and Procedures of the Green Party of the United States, entitled 8. ALLOCATION OF DELEGATES TO THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE GREEN PARTY,ARTICLE I as follows:
 
“ARTICLE I. RECALCULATION This apportionment will be recalculated every two years, in the odd numbered year following the national election year by the Apportionment Standing Committee (see Article VII). This committee shall start meeting between election day in the even numbered year and the following March 4, shall put out a call to state parties within two weeks requesting information necessary for the apportionment calculation, and will present the results of its recalculation to the National Committee by the end of the following May. The results of each apportionment recalculation must be accepted by the National Committee by a two thirds vote, and shall become effective at the conclusion of the vote.”
 
To read:
