6. Discussion of Proposed Policy entitled: "RSA Modification Procedure"

The President stated this proposal was introduced on the PPML recently, and it was up to the AC to accept it as submitted by the author as a formal policy proposal or, if the AC did not, the author could petition to get it assigned a formal number.
 
MK moved that:

"The ARIN Advisory Council, having reviewed the proposed policy entitled ‘RSA Modification Procedure', accepts the text as submitted by the author as a formal policy proposal; and, requests the President assign it a formal policy proposal number."

This was seconded by BD.  The President called for discussion. Discussion ensued on whether this issue needed to become a formal policy proposal and go through the process, or if was an operational matter within ARIN that could be taken up by the ARIN Board of Trustees.

The President briefed AP on the previous items discussed, and explained that he had been chairing the meeting in the absence of the Chair and Vice Chair.  The President then asked AP if he, as Vice Chair, wanted to take over chairing the meeting at this point, or let the discussion continue.

It was the sense of the AC that the issue at hand would be better addressed by the ARIN Board.  MA stated that with the second to the motion being withdrawn, she would re-second the motion. RS called the question. The President asked for further comments.  Hearing no further comments, the President called for a roll call vote.

The motion failed with 9 against, and 2 in favor (AP, MK). 

The President asked BD to draft a statement of explanation. The President asked for any objections to this request. There were no objections. Counsel then suggested the author call him directly as well to discuss, and better understand the bottom line concern of the proposal.  

The President asked if it was the sense of the AC that the ARIN Board take this matter into consideration for resolution at the Board's next meeting.  It was the sense of the AC that the matter be taken up by the Board. The President stated he would communicate this to the Board.

The President asked the Vice Chair if he would now like to chair the meeting. AP resumed chairing the meeting.
