Amendment 2: Remove extra "previous" in 80%-to-160% bylaw

Proposer

Rob Burnfield

Proposal

Remove the redundant word "previous" in Bylaw Article 5, Section 2 - Budget, subsection (b) (link).

Rationale

Bylaw Article 5, Section 2 - Budget, subsection (b) is as follows:

The proposed annual budget shall ensure a reserve fund in the amount of 80% to 160% of the previous average of the previous 3 years' actual income.

The sentence contains the word "previous" twice.  The first instance ("of the previous average of the previous 3 years'") is redundant.

Proposed changes

Proposed additions to the text are italicized and in green.  Proposed removals from the text are crossed out and in red.

Bylaws, Article 5, Section 2 - Budget (b)

Proposed change

(b) The proposed annual budget shall ensure a reserve fund in the amount of 80% to 160% of the previous average of the previous 3 years' actual income.

Additional information

If Amendment 1b, "Remove all budgetary limits on reserve fund", is passed, this amendment is redundant and can be ignored.
