Please make the following change to Section 3.2:
 
OLD:
 
        The chair may also exclude members and liaisons who have a serious
        conflict of interest on an issue (although this has never been done
        so far). Members can also choose to recuse themselves from 
        discussion of an issue, or refrain from casting a vote on an issue, 
        if they feel that is appropriate.
 
NEW:
 
        The chair may also exclude members and liaisons who have a serious
        conflict of interest on an issue (although this has never been done
        so far). Members can also choose to recuse themselves from 
        discussion of an issue, or refrain from participating in a 
        particular ballot, if they feel that is appropriate.
