Re: [802SEC] +++IEEE 802 EC motion+++ motion to approve attachedpress release

I vote approve, subject to the request that the attached editorial corrections be implemented.

I'd like to note that, although an 802.16 standard is the central news item here, 802.16 did not have anything to do with drafting or instigating the press release. I didn't see it until yesterday.

Thanks to Bob O'Hara for catching the "municipal" error.
