Hello Dave,

Thank you for your inquiry.

There was consensus at the ARIN VIII meeting to accept
Policy Proposal 2001-2.  The ARIN Advisory Council has
recommended to the ARIN Board of Trustees that this
policy proposal be ratified.

The ARIN Board of Trustees will make a final determination
on this policy proposal during their January 2002 meeting.

We will post new information regarding this policy proposal
to the front page of under the announcements section
as soon as it becomes available.

Best Regards,

Richard Jimmerson
Director of Operations
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
