I'd like to clarify the note below concerning a mandatory submission of
Minority Reports by today. We certainly appreciate that TEITAC members have
already prepared reports and would like to submit them -- please do! Jim and
I have already received drafts. We realize that these reports may provide
important data and clarification on topics and provisions.
Sorry for causing undue anxiety and stress prior to the weekend.

Subject: [teitac-committee] Important Note Concerning Minority Reports!
Members of the TEITAC Committee:
After further review of the TEITAC protocols and consultation with the
Access Board, Jim and I have decided that it is NOT necessary for you to
submit Minority Report drafts at this time. Our protocols are very clear
about the inclusion of Minority Reports along with the TETIAC final report.
Section 19, "Recommendations" states:
"Any committee member may prepare a minority report for the record. Minority
reports will be incorporated into the committee's final report."
This infers that minority reports are typically submitted after the
committee has prepared "a set of recommendations in the form of a final
written statement..." Minority reports are usually prepared to cover topics
where consensus could not be reached through the committee. These reports
are NOT subject to peer review or approval. They are included as part of the
final report that is submitted to the Access Board in January, 2008.
During our November meetings we will decide as a committee on a reasonable
date to require submission of the minority reports.
Regards and thanks,
