Transcript 3) Called for repeal of those provisions of PL 93-^67 (child support law of 1975) that force the caretaker of a dependent child to reveal the paternity of the child and that assign support for the child to the state. '0 Approved the joining of the Coalition to End Brand Jury Abuse, with other major civil rights groups. 5) Established a ^ask Force on Feminism in Rural America, to include representation from all four regions. 6) Voted to oppose S. 1 , the Criminal Justice Reform Act, on the basis that many provisions are repressive and loosely defined, open to broad interpretation (almost any act of protest against government policy or activity could be interpreted as a throat to national security, and therefore a felony, subjecting a person convicted to extreme penalties). ?) Approved use of the vacant smaller half of the former NOW National Office on South Wabash Street ir. Chicago by the Illinois ERA Mobilization Committee for four months. °) Resolved to support Patricia Veldon and Carmen Banos, members of the U.S.Navy and. Air Force respectively, who are struggling to live open life styles as lesbians despite harrassment from military authorities. financial patters 1) Approved a temporary maximum allocation of $400 per state. Under current reimbursement procedure, money expended will be factored into future revenue sharing allocations of the states. The natter of the budget allocation to states is remanded to committee for report at the April Board meeting. Myers & Latourell report that the inability to work out the details was "due to substantial difference of opinion (across factional lines for a pleasant change as to the most equitable method of disbursement (geography, stage of development and need, population, or a combination method)." 2) Approved a budget allocation of $100 for the Committee on Implementation of 3udget Allocation to States. 3) Approved the contract with Graphic Communications Consultants, Inc., for ERA medallion, a major fund raiser for ERA and chapters, (While not named specifically, this apparently was the contract involving two members of the board which concerned Myers and Latourell because guidelines on conflict of interest, having been rescinded by the Board in Dec. 1975» were lacking in the interim procurement procedures. Hopefully the problem will be resolved by passage of a motion that"the committee appointed to develop new procurement guidelines be mandated to include conflict of interest guidelines in its product.") k) Proceeds from the medallion are restricted for ERA. {tow this agrees with the description of being "a major fund raiser for ERA and chapters" given in 3 above is a mystery to me.) 5) Dollar amount limits were set on advances for projects, and a time certain of 90 days following completion of the project was set for expense receipts to justify advances. ."Vers and latour ell were encouraged by this action. 6) Approved completion of two half-hour films on the 1975 rational conference to be used by chapters and states as fund raisers at a nominal cost. A budget allocation of $^990 was approved for the project, which will yield three copies of each film. 7) Voted that every existing task force be allocated $2,000 as a minimum for 1976, except for the Sexuality and Lesbianism Task Force, which has had its budget determined by the national conference. (I can find no mention anywhere in the material I have what that figure might be) 3) Still of concern to Myers and Latourell is the budget, which, in their openion is "over- projected by at least $200,000 in income. A mathematical error of $10,000 was corrected in Phoenix, but direct mail and new member projections remain at levels up to $139,000 more than we have ever achieved, even in 'good1 times. Further, interest interest income of $6000 is projected, though no reserve (fund balance) exists on which to. draw such interest income. These financial questions are very serious and must be addressed." (Looking back to DeCrow £ Smeal1 s letter regarding the interest we will earn "on dues as soon as they are received", I wonder if this is where such an item originated. And if so, why was it not discussed at the Board meeting so all could be informed?
