> The following changes would be made in the NRPM:
> 1. Retitle section “Three months” to “Time Horizon”.
> 2. Section body, replace “three months” with “24 months”.
> 3. Section, replace the term “three months” with “24 months”.
> 4. Section 4.3.3, replace both instances of “one year” with “24 months”.
> 5. Section, replace the entire paragraph which currently reads:
> "ISPs may request up to a 3-month supply of IPv4 addresses from ARIN, or
> a 24-month supply via 8.3 or 8.4 transfer. Determination of the
