I'm not sure this impacts whether I support or not, but I
think it is good to have clear expectations.

How would this impact those already on the waiting list?

Would they stay in place, and the request grow to a 2
year need if they could provide justification for such?

Would they stay in place, and the request grow to a 2
year need automatically if they have transfer

Would this only apply to those being added to the wait
list after the policy is implemented?
