I see from your other email that the letter will not go out from the RC.
If the bylaws are not clear that any position adopted by the RC has to
actually be approved by the RC then I will draft a bylaws revision and
submit it for vote by the RC membership. This is an issue on which there
should be no question.

Jim - this was the entire draft, minus some final grammatical edits.
There is nothing in the bylaws that requires a vote on such a letter. Nor
is there time to - there is less than a week between the hearing and the
deadline that the Committee set for submission.

Elana, if you are sending something on behalf of the RC, then I would
think the RC would need to formally vote to do it. The entire draft
should be put to a formal vote, with time for the draft to be reviewed
and debated by all members.

Dear Registrars - I have drafted a potential submission on behalf of the
Constituency to the US Congress Committee that held the hearing yesterday
on Whois accuracy. The goal of this letter is to illustrate for the
Committee the accuracy methods that we already implement and the costs of
doing so, so that they understand that what we do demonstrates our
compliance with the RAA. Please indulge any spelling errors at this
point. I will edit it further before sending the letter to Congress, but
wanted to get it out to you before the weekend.
The hearing record will remain open only through Wednesday, so please
send me your edits by Close of Business Monday, Sept. 8th, so that I can
incorporate them into this draft.
