*authority indicating the bylaws revision vote should be
*presented as the
*current (original bylaws) .... a single yes/no vote to adopt
*or reject.
*>From Sturgis pg 209-

*procedures as those
*followed for the adoption of the original bylaws."

*membership votes on
*each article as individual amendments. The revision is intended to
