I have no plans to proposed another amendment myself, no. I've actually not
given the discussions thus far as much attention as I would have liked to,
partially waiting for the dust to settle before properly evaluating the

My concern about reducing the discussion period is one of perception.
You have the authority to reduce it as DPL. But you also authored one
of the amendments. There's nothing procedurally that prevents you
from exercising both rights, but I am concerned that whichever way the
voting goes, there will be a faction of people who will consider the
vote to have been compromised. I know that you are not attempting to
rush through a decision to get the outcome you desire; and I'm sure
none of our DD colleagues would accuse you of that either. But there's
a large peanut gallery watching the project at the moment, and any
perceived irregularity will be jumped on.
