6-Action Items: Extensive discussion before voting and clarifying that WNC was voting on these possible motions that PCAC committees might be bringing to PCAC because we have 2 representatives from WNC and they have to vote in the manner that WNC instructs. The 2 WNC reps need to know how to vote in the name of WNC. Other WNC board members who also sit on PCAC will vote as they choose, according to who they represent on PCAC, which may or may not be the same way as WNC would vote. These motions being discussed are not motions of the WNC, but WNC is giving input on how they stand on these motions.
