Re: [802SEC] Interpretation of current P&P
I think that the intent of "eight years" is "four two-year terms".
On the other hand, if we take the "eight years" literally, then I
think we ought to look at the calendar. According to my records, the
March 2000 session ended on 9 March and the March 2008 session opens
on 17 March.
