This makes sense to me.  But I want to ask for some clarification to make sure.

The sentence "The proposed change would allow the AC to meet no more 
than monthly to perform this task" can be taken to meaning either

a) we want to alleviate the AC from having to meet more than once a month

b) we want to prevent the AC from meeting more than once a month

I think the intent is "a".  Is that right?

Nothin' more exciting than going to the printer to watch the toner drain...
