Re: [802SEC] +++ LMSC P&P Revision Ballot +++ WG Voting Procedures

 I disapprove on this motion.

Comments that must be satisfied for my vote to change to approve: I think that the change of the chair deciding procedural issues
to deciding non-technical issues is wrong.  In particular for those
groups operating with treasury, expending money from the treasury should
be decided by the group and not the chair alone. The rest of this clause is a hash.  I would prefer the
"The Chair of the Working Group decides procedural issues.  The Chair
decides which issue are procedural.  The Chair may seek the guidance of
the Working Group before deciding procedural issues.  The method and
choice of seeking guidance on a procedural issue is solely at the
discretion of the Chair." There needs to be a statement here on what must be voted upon.
I would suggest:
"Decisions on all issues that are not procedural are decided by a vote
of the Working Group." Delete "technical" from the first sentence.  Delete the
sentence beginning "Non-technical motions". Delete the two paragraphs beginning "The Working Group Chair
determines if and how negative votes...".  Replace them with the
"The processing of the comments received from a letter ballot shall be
done in accordance with the procedures for Sponsor Ballots, as described
in the IEEE-SA Operations Manual."
