This sounds reasonable and I generally support it, but ...

I'm curious as to what happens to proposals submitted just before a 
meeting, right at the 60-day cut-off.  If a decision on those was 
deferred 45 days three bad things could happen:

    a) most importantly, if the AC decline sthe proposal, there
       wouldn't be time to petition to have it considered at
       the next meeting
    b) there would only be 15 days for mailing list discussion, rather
       than the 30 days required by the current IRPREP.
    c) there could be difficulty with finalizing and printing the
       meeting agenda (will the proposal be on the agenda or not?)

To be clear, I would NOT support extending the 60-day-before-a-meeting 

Perhaps the 10-day requirement could be retained for proposals 
submitted close to meetings?
