   Draft Policy ARIN-2014-2: Improving 8.4 Anti-Flip Language

The AC provided the following statement:

"Review of the PPML, the record of discussion and polling at the Chicago 
PPM and the original author's statement of willingness to withdraw the 
proposal indicate a lack of consensus. The ARIN AC has therefore decided 
to abandon Draft Policy 2014-2 Improving 8.4 Anti-Flip Language. The AC 
recognizes that some community members believe this to be an important 
issue and encourages those members to investigate a means to solve the 
problem statement that the Draft Policy was focused upon. You may find a 
record of this on the ARIN website."

The AC abandoned ARIN-2014-2. Anyone dissatisfied with this decision may 
initiate a petition. The deadline to begin a petition will be five 
business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes are published. For 
more information on starting and participating in petitions, see PDP 
Petitions at: https://www.arin.net/policy/pdp_petitions.html

The AC is continuing to work on the following:

   Draft Policy ARIN-2014-1: Out of Region Use
