As many of you already know, the national RLC board has scheduled a special convention in February to address rule changes regarding delegate apportionment. There is currently only one plan being considered and this plan would result in most states having very small delegations of 3 or 4 delegates and a total delegate count of fewer than 50 state delegates. This proposal discourages attendance at the national convention because it produces so few delegates and substantially increases the power of ex officio delegates. In addition the formula used in the proposal will need to be revised every two years.
To address the flaws in this proposal we offer the following alternative proposal for consideration at the special convention. It produces a larger delegate count for each state, reduces the importance of ex officio delegates and does not require periodic revision of the delegate allocation formula.
To get the petition on the agenda we just need enough member signatures on this petition. Please add yours if you are a current RLC member.
