The Board has never exercised that power in the past, but the ability is there in the Bylaws in case a good reason appears in the future.  We are talking about reducing that power so that the Board cannot abuse it.

Good Alan, but the way it was presented  does not sound same as your last text. 
 But It was also proposed to just remove board adopting policy from bylaws and only depend on the PDP. May be an updated version of the PDP ?
