Bill -
  Your petition must conform to the ARIN Policy Development Policy,
  and that does not provide for submission of an alternate version
  of the draft policy via the petition process.  It provides for 
  the petition of an "action taken by the Advisory Council".  The
  ARIN PDP may be found here: <https://www.arin.net/policy/pdp.html>

  Please indicate which Advisory Council action you are petitioning 
  so that the petition process may be initiated.

President and CEO
