Re: [802SEC] +++ SEC Rules Change Letter Ballot +++ Addition of second vice chair position to SEC

I disapprove, but will approve if the following get fixed (comments 
courtesy of one of my committee members):

"Location: the parenthetical sentence appended to item b) in 3.2
Now reads: his' or her's discretion
Change to:  his or her discretion
Rationale: The pronouns "his" and "her" are possessives; the apostrophic
constructs presently in the text are not known words.

Proposed change: delete from this proposal
Rationale: As this change pertains to officers of a Working Group or TAG, it
goes beyond the stated purpose of the proposed change.

General comment: Geez, doesn't anybody read these things when they write
