I did ask "If that is incorrect, would you please explain why you think 
it is a good idea to restrict these transfers to a 3 month supply, and 
that should be more prominent in the rationale."

Well then, I guess I do oppose the policy as written, at least until I 
receive a better rationale for why to restrict transfers to a 3 month 
supply is a good idea.  This issue was  discussed as part of 2009-8. 
So, I cannot support removing it without a clear and convincing 
rationale for why it should be removed.  Furthermore, I would be very 
skeptical removing it through the use of the emergency PDP, since it was 
relatively recently added through the normal PDP.

I'm not opposed to grandfathering those in the queue at the time of the 
change, and as I said I believe that can be accomplished without 
changing the policy and without the use of the emergency PDP.
