Dear State Central Committee Member,  

At the recent Fall SCC meeting (October 10, 2020), the State Rules Committee presented information about three (3) proposed amendments to the DPNM Rules, and the SPARC presented information about nine (9) proposed DPNM Resolutions.

This message provides the details you need to participate in the following:
  • Online Public Comment on each of the proposed amendments and resolutions
  • Daytime and evening Online Workshops on the proposed amendments and resolutions


The Online Public Comment Period (OPCP) for those proposed Rules and Resolutions opens on Monday, November 16, at 9:00am and closes two weeks later on Monday, November 30, at 5:00pm.

The full text of each proposed Rules amendment and each proposed Resolution is available via links on the Fall 2020 SCC Voting page (Click here) on the DPNM website.   

On the Fall 2020 SCC Voting webpage, you will also find links to the Online Public Comment (OPC) pages – one for each proposed Rules amendment and one for each proposed Resolution. 

  • For each proposed Rules amendment and each proposed Resolution, you can view, download, and print a PDF file containing the full text of the proposal -- just click the Full Text - Printable PDF File link for that item.

  • To submit your public comment(s) for a proposed Rules amendment or Resolution, just click the Submit Online Public Comment link for that item. 

  • For each proposed Rules amendment and Resolution, you will also be able to view a file containing all the current online public comments -- simply click the Review All Online Public Comments link for that item.


For the convenience of as many SCC members as possible, four (4) online workshops have been scheduled: Two for the proposed DPNM Resolutions and two for the proposed Amendments to the Rules.

Both workshops on the proposed Resolutions will cover the same information about all nine (9) Resolutions. Similarly, both workshops on the proposed Rules amendments will cover the same information about all three (3) Amendments.

Register here to participate in any of these online workshops:

After you register for one or more workshops, you will receive confirmation email(s) with information about how to join the workshop(s).


One week after the Online Public Comment Period closes, SCC members will vote on these proposed Rules amendments and Resolutions via absentee ballots during the voting period – opening Monday, December 7 at 9:00am and closing Saturday, December 12 at 5:00pm. 

You will receive another email from us with information about the voting process and links to your Absentee Ballots on Monday, December 7, at the opening of the voting period.
